LUWS Topic Organization

This article needs to be reorganized. I've been meaning to propose and/or do this for a long time, but haven't gotten around to it. Tom's recent work on the {{LUWIndex}} template inspired me to write down my thoughts.

I would suggest that we have the main LUWS article be written from a user perspective -- it would describe the capabilities of the site that a normal user can see, including how to register. This branch of the documentation would potentially spawn child articles in the user realm.

Then there should be a separate LUWS Administration article. There would be a link in the heading of the main LUWS article to take you there. The LUWS Administration article would definitely spawn child articles. You could easily have an article just on administering event calendars, another on resource calendars, one on leadership directories, one on lesson schedules, etc. The main LUWS Administration article would provide brief summaries of those features and links to them using the {{main}} template.

This organization would then be reflected in the {{LUWIndex}} template, which could have a User section and an Administration section (similar to the sections in the {{MLS}} template. -- Aebrown 15:40, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

I like your idea Alan. I think it would be very beneficial to have the main article written from the user perspective. I also like the idea of indexing out the child articles. Rick 15:46, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
When I first saw the {{LUWIndex}} template appear, I didn't understand that it was project oriented. So I would amend what I wrote above slightly to reflect that if we expand the group of LUWS articles as I propose above, it would be nice to have an index template to link them together, as has been done with {{MLS}}. But it would be a different template from {{LUWIndex}}. -- Aebrown 23:22, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Removal of Delete template

I removed the {{Delete}} template which had been placed on the article by Johnsonth with the comment "This is no longer an active community project, so I think this page is outdated." This article never had anything to do with any community project. The project is documented in Local Unit Website Project, but this article documents the usage of LUWS (now referred to as "Classic Stake and Ward Websites"). Since LUWS is still alive, it is entirely appropriate to keep this article. When all the LUWS functionality is available on and LUWS is finally retired, then there will no longer be a need for this article. But that time is surely many months in the future. -- Aebrown 17:52, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Connection with MLS update

I believe the Connection with MLS section is not currently correct and in need of update. --Errolrob 20:54, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

The information is not correct for the new website tools but this article (as described in the first paragraph) talks only about the classic website. The information is still correct in that context. -- Eric Blood 23:13, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
