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.
