Re: Uniform set of categories for all sections that have them?

in reply to Uniform set of categories for all sections that have them?

I think I get what you mean. A simple hyperlink could be generated between identically named categories.

For example, CGI Programming would contain a link Categorised Q&A, and the page QandASection: CGI programming would contain a link Code Catacombs, displayed fairly promenantly.

Tutorials would need integrating in a similar fashion, because the section doesn't currently have a node for each category.

    Well, yes, actually it does. (See my example in the root node.) Modern Tutorials is a nested structure, i.e. a tree.

    It's rather unfortunate that the sections are implemented so differently, and appear so differently to the user. One possible side-effect of this proposed approach is that people might become increasingly aware of the difference in look-and-feel between the sections.

    We're building the house of the future together.
