Wiki Portals - Hidden Jewels
« on: December 16, 2019, 02:40:21 am »
The Wiki has some very informative portals for various platforms and some not so informative and rather dated, but on the whole they're very useful one-stop platform shops for access to relevant wiki pages.

See: https://wiki.freepascal.org/Category:Portals for the full list.

I was a little surprised that a few them seem to languish with little attention paid to them, but I suspect it's because they're not readily "in your face" being hidden away in the depths of the wiki. It would be nice if they were listed on the main page...

Take a look, be amazed, and maybe add some content or update some content while you're there :-)
o Lazarus v2.1.0 r62452, FPC v3.3.1 r42644, macOS 10.14.6 (with sup update), Xcode 10.3
o Lazarus v2.1.0 r61574, FPC v3.3.1 r42318, FreeBSD 12.0 (Parallels VM)
o Lazarus v2.1.0 r61574, FPC v3.0.4, Ubuntu 18.04 (Parallels VM)

Excellent serbod - that would look great of the main page (and the Specialised Search Engine paragraph towards the bottom of the main page could be removed because all the links thereto are no longer in existence).

Nice initiative, trev.  I hope more people get involved in the wiki to keep it up-to-date, not only with the portals but also updating articles.

Thanks Ñuño. Yes, indeed, content maintenance is always a nightmare and is often overlooked  (I come from a legal publishing background).
