Starting General Restructure for better maintenance/updating
OK guys, I have started to re-organise the structure of the GRAF wiki area. I am mainly after any critisisms, otherwise I will continue to convert all the remaining format pages over into the new structure. Here are the main changes...
1. The different formats used in a game will all have separate pages. This is partly due to point 2.
2. All games that use the same format will point to 1 instance of the page. A good example is that all games using ZIP archives point to a single ZipArchive page.
3. Because of points 1 and 2, the GRAF main page looks different, with each extension listed next to the game name. This makes it a little messier, but more functional.
If anyone has any complaints about this, feel free to lodge them here ASAP. I think its looking good so far, and will definately make things easier for both the updaters and the readers.
Hmm... a temporary solution at best, IMHO. I'd volunteer to hack the source myself and see what could be done for personalizing the WIKI to our unique needs, but I know almost nothing of PHP programming (or any other, except some TI BASIC...) (which reminds me, I need to add the formats for the TI graphing series, they're like the pinnacle of do-it-yourself game programming =D ) Anyways, I think it works fine for now.

Yes I totally agree that a better solution could be achieved by hacking the code apart, but I think that in the short term this would be just as benificial. Certainly better than no change at all :) . Thanks for your comments.
Initial restructure completed - just need to check all links inside each page, and remove all the newly-orphaned pages (mostly pages that were split up into multiple pages for each format). Hope you like it.
Yep, I like it. ;)
Me too. I think it will make it easier to find stuff, and would also work better with search engines, although we'll have to see if the unclickable game titles make them less favorable for search engines somehow. Good work altogether though.
