This layout seems better to me. Although I am not sure the News and Questions in the Discussion category are necessary, as we have the newsgroup. I would rely more on the newsgroup for news and questions. --Smg3d 14:53, 17 Feb 2005 (CST)
News & Questions
I thought the news section could be just a central place for general news from Warren, plugin developers, or wiki site maintainers to post things concerning everyone. And the Questions area might be more of an ever growing FAQ. I think one of the things we'd like to do is add all the unique questions from the mailing list archives that are still pertinent to modern PyMOL into this wiki somewhere.

FAQ and News
I thought you meant "questions from users" in the Question category. Questions as in FAQ is definitely a necessity!
For the News, it may be a good idea to have a compilation of News that are in the Newsgroup, although I guess it would mean for people to put their News to both places. Or would there be an automatic way to have News to be automatically put at both places (wiki and newsgroup)? Personnaly I would rely on the newsgroup for news, but I guess not all PyMOL users are members of the newsgroup... I am assuming that people who are newsgroup members would only come to the wiki when they want want to fix a problem, or to learn PyMOL tricks. In any case, it does not hurt, as long as information does not stop to flow in the newsgroup. --Smg3d 15:35, 17 Feb 2005 (CST)
FAQ and syntax highlighting
I completely agree, I don't want to supplant the newsgroup, its been a great source for worldwide interactions. If we can figure it out, I think it would be nice to have say the 50 latest messages mirrored here somewhere and any good questions added to our FAQ.
I think I've found a solution to add syntax highlighting to display code. I've looked into adding extensions for new tags and it seems that we could add something like a
tag easily enough. I even found an open source project implemented in PHP no less to do syntax highlighting for us.
