TYPE YOUR FEEDBACK HERE -- THEN CLICK THE SAVE BUTTON:


The tip itself should be at the top of the page. Why was the explanation (which will become much longer) moved before the Tip? The point of this page is to see the Tip, thus it should be at the top. --Donh 14:40, 11 February 2009 (EST)

See your point.No problem, moved it back.. --LainieH 15:07, 11 February 2009 (EST)

I would love to be able to get the Tip of the Day as an RSS feed...did I miss where I can already do this? This is a really nice feature of the site. Thanks -- CarolinaJay65

CarolinaJay65, we have received a few requests for that and are investigating how to do this. Thanks for the feedback. And please, review and contribute some tips. --Don Henderson 20:00, 3 March 2009 (EST)

Can we have link to an index of Tips, or a "Tip search" box? When I have a tip to suggest, I want to check that it has not already been submitted. --Peter.Crawford 20:02, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

Peter, I added a link to Tip in Use. Also, for anyone interested in a Tip of the Day RSS feed, I recommend following the daily tips on Twitter here: http://twitter.com/sasCommunity. You can get that RSS feed as well. --LainieH 21:16, 27 April 2010 (UTC)

Re Peter's request: I find it handy to use the built-in search (not the Google appliance) and to check the Tips space and uncheck the Main space.--Howles 01:58, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

The search that Lainie added does use the internal search of the Tips namespace. I also added the same search facility, along with links for the list of tips by status, to the Tip of the Day page. Note that I still need to check the layout of these additions in browsers other than IE. --Don Henderson 02:43, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Where is the RSS feed that LainieH mentions located? I also ask on her talk page here. - paulkaefer (talk) 10:56, 8 August 2016 (CDT)


I've been gardening tips because I've realized a few things:

  1. sometimes the see also/read more links get scrunched together with the "Feel free to comment" text, when the page is transcluded (so I just add a blank line to clear this up)
  2. There are some "dead" or "broken" links, many of which are archived at web.archive.org, the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine.
  3. Sometimes the pages are Dead-end pages, or could benefit from another wikilink or two.

I want to try and garden them before their "tip day," so things like broken links don't cause frustration. Just thought I would post here, for the benefit of others. - paulkaefer (talk) 17:00, 31 October 2016 (CDT)
