Justin, thank you for reply.
Yes, i had earlier read the link above to check if
dragonflybsd.org was using markdown.
A website is the one of the most important platform that any
project can utilize to reach out to the potential community
Some of the queries i had/have are as follows:
1. Format / layout related
. is a .GIF file accepted as a image file or does one need to
strictly adhere to .PNG/.JPG format ?
. are IFRAME allowed to be inserted in the pages ?
. are video <DIV> allowed to be used directly in the pages ?
(the user sees a youtube like video screen and can click to
see the video)
. are modifications allowed to the local.css CSS file ?
. are page style template changes allowed ?
2. Content related
. can the technical content be written from a DragonFlyBSD
promotional angle ?
. what is the recommended div tag class for code/configuration
. when referring to source code in DragonFlyBSD repository,
should a hyperlink be placed for the file or can the code be
loaded in an IFRAME ?
. is there a attic to move the old/expired content ?
3. Widget/Link related
. is it allowed to associate service widgets like
- sharethis / bookmark this widget
. are links to DragonFlyBSD groups on Facebook, twitter
timelines allowed on website ?
. subdomain cleanup (eg. wiki.) policy.
Thank you for your time.
