The Galaxy Community Log Board is a place to share how you addressed a particular task in your Galaxy deployment. Log entries describe specific solutions to particular tasks, such as the details of what steps were taken to deploy Galaxy on particular platforms, or with particular software. It's an easy way to help others (and learn from others) by sharing what you've already done.
So, if you have figured out how to do something, and it took you a while, then this is the ideal forum for sharing that information with the community.
Add a Log Entry
Have experience you want to share? The larger Galaxy community would love to learn about it. There are two ways to add your deployment to this catalog.
- Log entry is added to the board immediately, but requires a wiki account
- Some delay in publishing log entries, and less control over what it looks like, but interface is much easier.
Use the Wiki
Pick a good descriptive, CamelCase name for your log file. This will become part of the URL for your log page. This can include descriptive text, a date (but not the year as that is automatically included), your name or anything else that helps identify the log. Avoid embedded spaces as they make lousy URLs.
Type the CamelCase name in box below and hit the "Create" button.
- A template for the new log page will appear. Replace the template text with details about your experience
- Save, review, and edit the page until you are happy with it.
- Return to this page, edit this page, and add a link to your log page, and then save the edit.
Use the Online Form
If the wiki option seems a little daunting, you can also create an entry that just links to an external document that uses whatever documentation technology you are most comfortable with. Use this form to create and entry that just points to the real documentation. Once the form has been submitted, the information will be reviewed and a log entry will be programmatically generated within a week or two. You will be notified via email when the entry is created.
