Welcome to the documentation of the Memento Database wiki!
While interesting content, maybe of general educational or historical value, may be important to understand, these topics should not get in the way of wiki users who might not have much time to spend gathering information because of their need to get things done promptly in their business or other pursuit. The wiki is first & foremost a reference tool, so quick & effective access to specific information is paramount. Sections of narrative value should be placed to the side, but it is important that it be clear as to what & where it is so users can access it when they have time.
Our primary objective is one of balance: between desktop & mobile editions, between bottom-up & top-down link structure, between simplicity & complexity, etc.
The internal product documentation of Memento Database apps...
When the original wiki author, Bill Crews, first began using the only edition at that time, the mobile edition, Memento was at release 3.7.0, and the documentation consisted of 2 documents -- the Manual and the FAQ, both of which were extremely sparse and worse -- out of date. There were 14 field types at that time.
This documentation started to be developed in April of 2021. It is being developed by both Bill Crews and Beth Dixon. It presents information equally between the Mobile & Desktop editions. common between the Mobile and Desktop editions.
