As the new templates start to get into place, I have started to look at the new structure of information here on the site. There are some areas that are underused and others that make more sense elsewhere. I also have a lot of new databases to add to get the infrastructure I want. It may seem daunting, but it's just invigorating to me, so it is all good!
The new structure
This new structure has been a work in progress and I will spend some more time with it as I add more databases and pages. As you might see here I have removed Writings as a main node as I have moved what used to be there to other nodes. I have also moved out Security as a primary section, and it is now a subsection under Operations. That is because I don't have enough knowledge or focus that motivates it being a primary node. Instead, I am adding Invision Community as a main node, since I am pretty much always working with it.
I am adding a lot of new databases based on this new setup that I have. It started with the Playbooks, that are already up and have some initial content to test things out. As I build these playbooks, I sometimes come across features that are best used as a separate database, as they will be used in multiple databases. It started with Countries that I use in the Companies database and that I will use in the upcoming People database.
My next project will be to make a new database for the Reviews that I currently have built in as a ton of custom fields in some databases. Having this as a separate database makes more sense and since I can connect reviews between databases this will make things a lot easier. As all display templates now use the same template it is easy to decide what databases should be connected to reviews, by simply adding a custom field for database relation to the reviews database.
The rollout of the databases will probably be a bit slow as I focus on some of them. This month, for example, I am focusing on the Playbooks and the video section. I am also putting focus on building the Atlassian section site so I have a starting point to work from. This page will be made up of multiple blocks, so I have some cleaning to do in my admin section to set a proper block structure and a proper pages structure.
I also need to reorganize my Figma setup so I can design things faster in the future. As I have added more colors to the setup and now removed Security as prime section, I need to make some updates there as well. As you can imagine, this also ties into the CSS structure that I am planning out as well.
So it will take some time, but I will get there
