Hosting earth not a globe
« on: December 09, 2013, 07:44:53 PM »
I feel we should host a copy of this as its our number one source and rather than keep directing people away from the site, it'd be nice to have it here.

Is this possible?

can you do a clever thing where if people type 'earth not a globe' or 'ENaG' it hyperlinks to that source automatically?

Can you post the link on the home page? Just for ease of finding ENaG link. Also this other link is not a PDF, shorter download time, and easier to use.

If you're going to do something like that, then perhaps it wouldn't be a bad idea (as a long term project) to host as much FE literature as you can find in a FE Library section.  I'm sure Daniel wouldn't mind if someone rips off grabs a copy of some of his collection.

There are programs which can rip a website, such as the HTTrack Website Copier.

It would be a matter of someone ripping that website and uploading the files to a new directory on the github repository and putting a link in the cms. Eventually Parsifal would publish it. This isn't something which can't be done by us.

I think the best course of action would be to put it up on the Wiki (as actual Wiki pages instead of links). That way it would be easily-navigable and well-integrated with the rest of the site.
Read the FAQ before asking your question - chances are we already addressed it.
