Item13669: Macros topic is no longer a good reference for a quick lookup of macro syntax.
Current State: Closed
Released In: 2.0.2
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
There are two problems.
One is easy to solve. The link in the WebLeftBar
in System called Macros used to point to a nice index page of macros that enabled me to get to the defined syntax of macros in two clicks. First Macros. Then click on the Macro name. Now I get a long bla bla bla about Macros. Very well written. But not the quick reference you want on a daily basis as a normal user.
link should point to the MacrosQuickReference
But now the real trouble comes.
The new MacrosQuickReference
assumes that all VarMACRO
topics are in a specific format. And they are not. More than half the Macros on a normal installation come from plugins. And they use the old format for a VarMACRO
topic. So the page is nearly useless now.
The plugins are not going to be converted to the new format any time soon. And what was the point that we all split out the plugin docu in VarMACRO
topics just to throw it all away with this change?
