Why delete Logs (administrator)

Rethunked Logs page. While reorganization of Reports (administrator) is good, if Administrators see Logs and Teachers see reports, no need to add this page, just edit the Logs page to help teachers with 1.5 or older Moodles. Sorry Helen to create work for you. Best --chris collman 08:37, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

No problem, I've done as suggested. --Helen Foster 03:29, 24 September 2007 (CDT)

Logs (administrator) comments

I believe there is a more obvious split between different logs seen by different roles as Moodle matures. In 1.8 logs are called "Reports" for teachers in their administrative blocks. The newer Site Administration block has a link to "Logs" under the catagory "Reports". The teacher reports and admin logs look slightly different. As time goes on the functionality and look should grow more different.

I changed the primary administrator page -(yikes will Helen approve?) so instead of saying "logs" under "Other" it now says "Reports (administrator) and Logs". I created an "Reports (administrator)" page with links to the 4 sub calories seen in 1.8. The "Logs" entry will come to "Logs (administrator)" page and that page link will be added to the general disambiguation page called "Logs". --chris collman 08:03, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

I suggest we have one logs page for both teachers and admins, since course logs and site logs are very similar. Shall I delete Logs (administrator)? BTW, although I've created page names with "(administrator)" previously, I now try to avoid using brackets in page names because it results in a not-so-nice URL. --Helen Foster 04:46, 11 September 2007 (CDT)
Ah, the not so nice URLs, good point. They bother me because I have to copy and paste my browser to get the right. I have some thoughts about what I think of as "words within context". I personally like some way to tell context of a page in the title because of the different functions that come with the context. Always a Newbie, I really don't want to bother either a new admin or a new teacher with the other's basic need to know knowledge. Linking helps span the context, as does our typical "See also". Think I will post more words on Documentation forum. "How important is context in a page title or organization?" too long --chris collman 20:38, 12 September 2007 (CDT)
