Major Priority

I believe that once we have identified all the items that need to go into this page that it should be protected from editing. All the items on the page have come from navigating through the administrative areas of phpGedView.

Hope editing the main page was not a major issue. You do not have staging turned on so there was not much choice. It has been a struggle to get by nuances of the software the last year or so of use and am now trying to bring 5 cousins up to speed. So I could either write a document on my own site's wiki or try and improve the community page. Being willing to share the burden, I chose the latter.

Some material is now replicated that is further down the page. But it was just those points I feel need to be brought forward much, much earlier for the new user. Another not addressed yet is the staged editing (edit / accept) which can really frustrate users even if they have accept privilege and can see the pending changes. As it is the page is very large. Likely needs to be broken up into chapters or similar. But the Quick Start either needs to be one sentence bullets with the links to the more detailed pages OR a little more tutorial as I have started to expand it too. Can really be either way. Only chose the latter as I did not want to remove material already there.

Let me know if you want me to continue with this effort. I have a 1,000+ person database that is now starting to grow more rapidly as these distant cousins get involved. (Likely you have all been there ...)
