In the "Who's Using Tiki" section, list URLs
Rename "History" to "Timeline" and list dates of major enhancments
I would also make this section of the Promo Sheet very visible. Showcasing what Tiki can do with real life use cases is always attractive.
Tiki is a web-based, multilingual, content management system (CMS) built using PHP, ADOdb, and Smarty. Tiki is Free Source Software, released under GNU/LPGL — you can use Tiki however you wish! Tiki's development team is international, boasting more than XXX active developers who continually work to improve the code and add new features.
Tiki includes hundreds of tightly integreated feaures — no need for additional modules to fill in the missing pieces. With Tiki you can create any type of application: web sites, portals, knowledge bases, and inter/extranets. Tiki's web-based, graphical interface, makes it easy to configure the features you need.
I wonder if people care enough about the fact that it's "built using PHP, ADOdb, and Smarty", to have that be mentioned in the second line of the sheet. I would leave that to the specs section.
"use case" has specific meaning in software engineering is that the intention? It doesn't quite cover it imho the profiles are essentially feature sets that are active on install. Perhaps "Configuration Profiles" "Initial Configurations" "Starting Point Configurations" "Startup Configurations"
"Feature Set Profiles" "Startup Feature Sets"
-1 on Rick's rewrite. "PHP, ADOdb, and Smart" is too technical for the first thing you read about TW. This should be covered properly in the Tech Spec section. If we ONLY want to appeal to PHP programmers put stuff like that in, which I did not think was the purpose of this document.
This document should say 1) what is TW and 2) what you can use if for. Then back this up with some examples. After That add a bit of technical background if we have space.
The cllaborative flavour of Tiki does not come across very much. We should inject that term in different spots. For example, in the first paragraph:
With Tiki you can create any type of /collaborative/ application: web sites, portals, knowledge bases, and intranets and extranets.
We have used this term when marketing Tiki during various Trade shows and it definitely gets people's attention.
Proposed edits for Tech Specs section:
- Any webserver that supports PHP (what version??)
- Any database via ADOdb (is this still true, or is TW really MySQL only)?
10,000,00 what is the real # the commas are misplaced or a zero is missing
?? is it worth while to put 2010 v 4.0 projected ??
MatWho or anyone else who is able to do,
Could you outlines font for the Tiki's logo? I'm not having Gentium font on my computer. I'm using a PNG version for this Promo Sheet which is not recomanded for printing needs.
In the "Who's Using" section, maybe add a link to the Featured Tiki showcase: http://info.tikiwiki.org/tiki-browse_gallery.php?galleryId=1
Or we could create a new wiki page (something like http://info.tikiwiki.org/Featured+Tikis) that redirects to the gallery.
You don't like my frenglish version?
You can donwload the right version.
Many thanks for your reply! There are 2 pdfs attached at the top. Can I edit the pdf in Adobe? I am not (yet) familiar with indesign, I thought it has some specific extension..or is it the attached "ai" file?
First, should I be editing the wiki page directly?
Then the comments:
1) Solutions "out of the box" are the key selling point and should be the first thing people read (top left).
2) Features contain too many techie terms . All the techie features should go to tech specs.
3) Database tracking system (I don't know what this is) -> Structured data
4) Surveys, quizzes and polls (nice features) -> move up
