Help for Tune Smithy
From Tune Smithy
This help is incomplete at present but will eventually replace the help that comes with the program.
The FAQ section is nearly up to date and is already better than the FAQ included with the program.
The other sections - Tutorials and Main Tasks section have just begun. They have some useful material so you may like to browse through to see what is on offer already. Check back again in a few weeks to see how they develop.
How can I help
You are very welcome to join to help build the content and help other users of the software. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I WILL CREATE AN ACCOUNT FOR YOU.
You can't create your own account here any more, sorry! Unfortunately, I had to disable that option as a spam prevention measure.
If you notice any typos, broken urls, and obvious errors, do fix them right away. You can also help with tutorials or FAQs if you have learnt to do things with FTS and want to share your experience with other users.
Please see How can I help? for details of other things you can do to help right now.
Right now the site is probably going to change a few times before it reaches its final form so if you want to help with some other areas of the help it may be best to contact me first.
If you have any questions at all about the best way you can help, just contact me, email@example.com
To Do List
- Should have separate pages for each of the Tune Smithy Tasks - maybe just use all the tool tips for the window similarly to the All Tune Smithy Windows pages
- More Tutorials
- Better organised FAQ and Trouble Shooting
I plan to update Tune Smithy to version 4.x some time this year - time permitting as it is a large task which will require several months of work.
Adding pages about yourself and your projects
You may want to add a page here about yourself - to do that, you need to log in, then edit your user page (click on your user name at the top of any page to get to your user page). If you sign discussions on the discussion pages for any of the articles, your signature takes the reader to your user page.
You can also add pages about your own projects (e.g. CDs or whatever) using Tune Smithy. Add them to the Member projects page. By adding material here you give permission for it to be included with the help for Tune Smithy users, e.g. on CD or DVD or maybe a large download installer. If you don't want to do that, just link to an external web page which the user can visit to buy the CD, download the music etc, or include some clips etc. Later I may do a separate wiki for user projects if there is enough interest.
Quick start for editing
To experiment with editing use the Sandbox

How to remove the ? from the urls e.g. for auto translate
You will notice that the urls of this web site have the form .../index.php?title=...
Sometimes you need a url without a ?
To do that remove the index.php?title= part of the url, and add .htm at the end like this:
