Strolen Linked Subs how to Q
« on: October 12, 2007, 12:42:28 AM »
HI all
Was typing away at the keys when it came to me what I wanted was to add and then refer to a previous submission of mine.
Im just not sure on the best procedure for interlinking subs n stories n such.

I bring your attention to my vissewort http://www.strolen.com/content.php?node=4217 submission.
In my latest 'sub to be' Id like to refer to a sub species of the wort. Is it worth a sub itself? its not worth voting on. There is not much to add to the current description really. It could alternately be a simple addition to the vissewort sub. But then later on there maybe a sub species that would substantiate a solo sub. So whatever precedence I set now should be the correct one.

Being fairly new to it all I havent as yet seen a similar type of 'string of linked subs' that have some very short almost inconsequential subs linked. Can someone point me to some? So I can get an idea of how it all goes together. Get a feel for 'at what point is it not worth a sub'.

cheers epsilon

Your options are as followed.

1) Make the primary sub a locked scroll that only you can add to and put the subspecies/type right there as a scroll entry.

2) Create a Stub of the subspecies and then add a link to the stub on the primary piece.

3) Make a second sub linked back to the primary and having a lot of the same text (not elegant, but will work)

4) Simply add more to the bottom of the existing sub.

Either of the 4 options will deal with your issue. There is no Right Answer. It is a matter of personal organization and asthetics. (My preferences are listed in the numerical order). The only consideration point is are you going to add more related subs and how you want to organize those.
