Conventions about content?

:PROPERTIES: :CUSTOM_ID: conventions-about-content :END:

Where you want to follow a documentation convention you may consider the Org documentation standards.

How rigid are these conventions?

(Suggestion: the farther from the index page you are, the more flexible the conventions should perhaps be.)

How do I link to other Worg files?

:PROPERTIES: :CUSTOM_ID: creating-links :END:

Links to other Worg pages should have the following format:

[[file:index.org][Worg's home page]]

This link will converted to a relative html link on export that looks like this:

Worg's home page

The filename should be a relative path. Thus, if you are creating a link to the index from within the org-tutorials directory, you should enter the path as follows:

[[file:../index.org][Worg's home page]]

The easiest way to create links to files is by typing C-c C-l while editing an org file. This will prompt you for both components of the link. (Be sure to enter file: before the path; this indicates the type of link.)

To enter file links more easily, you can simply type C-u C-c C-l. This will allow you to locate the file using emacs' built-in completion facilities and will automatically add the file: prefix.

One note of caution here: the path of the resulting link created depends on the setting of org-link-file-path-type. To ensure that you always use relative links, you can add the following to your =.emacs= file:

(setq org-link-file-path-type 'relative)

What is the default header for new files?

You can find a default header here: worg-header.org

How do I create a file?

Just create it. Before committing changes in Worg, make sure you add the file to the repository index with git add *.org.

What about dynamic blocks

If you are using dynamic blocks in Worg, please don't forget to add the relevant code in the code/elisp/worg.el file. See for example the dynamic block for the timestamp in the index page.

What about macros

If you are using macros, please add them to macros.setupfile.

COMMENT Defined macros explained


BeginMiniPage ... EndMiniPage
creates a mini page with a border. Used to
demonstrate layouts (see: [[file:./org-tutorials/images-and-xhtml-export.org]] for an example).
BeginInfoBox ... EndInfoBox
inserts a box with a little info icon on the
left. The text inside flows around the icon. Both, info and warning boxes, use the styles for =.org-info-box= in [[file:worg.css::org-info-box][worg.css]].
BeginWarningBox ... EndWarningBox
Like BeginInfoBox and EndInfoBox. The
icon used is different.
BeginBlindText ... EndBlindText
creates a <span></span> element, that
greys out the text. Used for text that is there just to fill paragraphs to demonstrate text flow (see: [[file:./org-tutorials/images-and-xhtml-export.org]] for an example).

How do I link to the Org version of the file?

The raw Org versions of the files are published here.
