Help

Overview

We began building the Help section of the XOWComics.com site in April and have filled in much of it; though, there is still much to be done. We will be filling in more of the following areas as we get the functionality and navigation of the XOWComics.com site documented. Though, we have seen already through the first calendar quarter of 2010 that the site has been built with an intuitive interface, making it largely unnecessary to document the individual pieces of navigation and functionality of the site. But, documentation still is important to have and you may be surprised just what little nuggets of information you may glean from reading through this information as it becomes available.

Data Structure

Overview of Organization of Data

Understanding how all of the data is organized within the XOWComics.com site can help you immensely in your experience with it. It allows you to more quickly find what you are seeking, understand what you are viewing, and intuitively comprehend how even the navigation of the site functions. It is worth spending five minutes to read this documentation as you become familiar with the wealth of knowledge that is catalogued in the XOWComics.com site.

Navigating

Getting Around the Site

The XOWComics.com site can best be described as "dense": it displays a lot of information in a very small space. This means that navigating the site, though very intuitive, can be a little overwhelming at the beginning. That is where these Help pages for Navigating the site can be of assistance.

Full documentation and help on the searching of data in the XOWComics.com site. Details for searching with each of the individual options available. The functionality of the search interface is also detailed, to aid you in all of your searches.

The My Account section of the site encompasses many details and much functionality. Anything as simple as logging into your account to setting up boxes in My Collection is all documented here, organized in the same structure as the XOWComics.com site itself.
