[IDEA] Tutorial Management by Users
« on: June 22, 2011, 08:02:52 am »
I think it'd be great if users could manage the Tutorials section, or at least some users because I made a tutorial that isn't on Tutorials, and I'm afraid I'm not the only one. So instead of asking admins to do it, we could do it ourselves.

Secondly, one of my uploaded tutorials has some BB Code and Formatting/Layout erros in the Tutorials Section and it'd be great if users could change that instead of having to ask Admins to do it.

I'm not sure if what I'm asking for is feasible, but I'd love it if it could be done. It would make Omnimaga's Tutorials Section more dynamic and better and save the Admins some free time :)

That was a little late :) But I'd like to get some feedback on my idea

I think it should be set up so we could manage our own tutorials and upload/edit them but not so we have complete control

Thanks, I also agree with that. I'd like it if we could add tutorials made by others, but not edit them.

Maybe, I think that might cause some problems though

well you can technically manage your own tutorials as i believe they are based off the posts you make for said tutorial and to submit one dont you just request an admin to do it?

not to upto date with how it works but i think thats right....

Yeah, I hope the Tutorials system can add some user management tools eventually.

Secondly, one of my uploaded tutorials has some BB Code and Formatting/Layout erros in the Tutorials Section and it'd be great if users could change that instead of having to ask Admins to do it.

If it's parsed from a post, you can just edit that post and it'll be reflected in the tutorial page immediately.

Haha, hope you find it useful though :)

I planned to add this, after I figured out how to re-assign the current tutorials to their respective authors.

Also the BBCode parsing is still not complete, as it's missing some CSS.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

That's exactly the problem, asking admins to submit them, I don't wanna PM admins and bore them with such tasks.

Yeah, the plan is to do like the Downloads section: People can submit their tutorial as they wish, then they get approved by a moderator (and a discussion link is added).
