Below are the categories you the reader should expect to find articles in this magazine. We anticipate that this set of categories will change over time to better represent the nature of articles it represents.
- Recipe magazine articles compare similar recipes, or discuss recipes that perform especially well or are popular.
- Site Profile
- A site profile showcases a web site that relies on PmWiki for content management.
- Case Studies
- With case study articles, the Magazine is looking for article authors to discuss the decision process they used when considering PmWiki. This includes best and worst experiences, and cases where PmWiki may not have satisfied the web site's need. This is a more expansive view than what would be provided by a Site Profile article.
- Best Practices
- Best practices articles help readers explore time-proven solutions, including best practices. This would also include a "Newbie Corner," or an article devoted to helping new or prospective PmWiki administrators navigate the various issues involved in establishing a new site, or converting a site into the PmWiki format. This topic may also help recipe authors explore ways to cooperate, coordinate and integrate recipes so that administrators can better integrate various recipes. We realize that "best" is often subjective.
- PmWiki Analysis
- Analysis of various aspects of the PmWiki software, such as data structures, code analysis, security and permissions.
- Code Releases
- PmWiki is an evolving wiki. So, the code release articles should help explain significant software and feature changes. When Pmwiki is about to undergo a new iteration of features, here may be found articles that explain what is planned.
- Every community has its notorious participants. This article section gives readers a chance to get to know more about some of those participants, including PmWiki document maintainers and recipe authors—to name a few types of personalities. Articles of this nature should discuss the sites a personality runs (more as to the type and nature than specifics), what led the person to chose PmWiki, what led him to contribute, and what plans he has for future involvement with PmWiki.
- Proto-articles are those articles that somebody has started on or desperately wants, but lacks the time, talent or energy to complete. This is more like an article stub. The nature of wikis is collaborative involvement, as these articles demonstrate.
