Most page-specific links in source:src/usr/local/www/help.php point to old URLs and not the new URLs.

This replaces #10011 - #10133 so that we do not have to update so many Redmine issues for single-line changes each.

Actions #1

Updated by Jim Pingle about 2 years ago

  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • % Done changed from 0 to 30

The concerns raised in #10011 - #10133 should all be addressed now, though there are still >200 URLs that point to the non-book docs, and about half of those are packages.

A lot of those won't be able to be addressed until after work is done on the book to incorporate info from the other docs, so this can probably be closed out once the pages which are currently possible are done. No need to make issues to create pages that do not yet exist, that's all part of a much larger project that doesn't need individual issues.

Ideally, further changes should be made as a PR against or at least made using a consistent format in a single file which can be used to automate the update process.

  • Target version changed from 2.4.5 to 2.5.0

Moving this to 2.5.0, it is nice to have but not a release blocker.

Actions #3

Updated by Jim Pingle almost 2 years ago

There are some suggestions for specific link replacements on #10481

Actions #4

Updated by Jim Pingle over 1 year ago

  • Subject changed from help.php: Update links to use The pfSense Book to help.php: Update links
  • Description updated (diff)
  • % Done changed from 30 to 50

The book and former wiki content have now been merged into a single set of documentation. I'm going to reuse this issue for tracking associated updates to the help.php content since it's essentially the same task as before, but for the new doc URLs.
