Breakup video tutorials category into more sub-sections

Postby masterchief » Sat May 15, 2010 12:43 pm

Just an observation. The tutorials category in videos ( http://people.joomla.org/videos.html?catid=2 ) has a real mix of different type. It could be worth breaking this category into the following:

Tutorials - Core Installation and Server Configuration
Tutorials - Core Administration
Tutorials - For Developers
Tutorials - For Designers
Tutorials - For Custom Extensions

The next obvious problem we will have is segregating Joomla versions as well. Probably a good idea to think about how to handle 1.5 and 1.6 videos (I'll have three fantastic 1.6 video's landing next month, hehe).

I think thats definitely a good idea for the future. Or maybe we should just create video.joomla.org ;)

Being a little bit more serious, with all the different Joomla!Day videos etc that are now all over the place, perhaps there should be a differentiation between "shorts" and "full presentations"

Hopefully the same will go for lots of others areas of the site too (groups, photos etc) as it grows.

From my JED experience, the categories for stuff are always evolving.

I guess the best solution is to introduce content tagging to get a good level of granularity.

That would certainly help.

Of course I can still dream of the day we have a specialised site for all video recordings of joomla conference sessions. ;)

Brilliant idea too. You should post your suggestion about this in the ideas forum.
