###Wiki: Getting Started vs Quick Start
I think there is some confusion here, or at least I am confused.
The Home Page [Keyboard Maestro Wiki] has links to both:
###Where is a New Keyboard Maestro User Supposed to Start?
If I’m a newbie, both of these sound much the same to me, so there’s no clear direction.
However, IMO, neither page is complete, or needs improvement:
- It does reference and provide a link to Quick Start, but will the user actually go there?
- It has some good stuff, but then there are sections titled by the author, neither of whom I’ve ever heard of, nor see active in the forums.
- We don’t do this on any other page, so first of all this content needs to be seamlessly integrated with the other (or maybe just removed).
- In general I think it is good, but it really is just a glossary.
- Since these are already in the actual Glossary, perhaps we should just provide a link to it.
- Maybe in the Glossary we need to highlight these key terms?
###I haven’t come to any conclusions yet, but these are my current thoughts I’m putting out for your comment:
BTW, I have a “Getting Started” list I got from one of Peter’s posts, and then added a few mods. Some of this is already in the Wiki Getting Started.
