[OWASP-wiki-editors] OWASP Top Ten Pages....

That’s because that particular page shows up as the #1 page in Google when you search on OWASP Top 10. Don’t know why exactly, other than it says Top 10 TWICE in the title. Maybe that’s why.


Yes – if someone with some more wiki foo than me can get the text to fit in the green bubbles properly that would be helpful.  Neil??


As to an intro or summary, what would you think about creating a header page for the entire OWASP Top 10-2013 set of wiki pages? Something like:


“Welcome to the wiki version of the OWASP Top 10 for 2013. This is page N of 20. The first page is HERE. And you can download a PDF of it HERE.” This could probably be added somehow to the existing header that is already there. Don’t know if Page N of 20 can actually be calculated. Hopefully it can…


Neil – is this something you think you can knock out?

Dave didn't do the T10 wiki, I did. 


The current wiki pages were designed to page-for-page match what was in the T10 printed doc. I made some minor changes to make them more wiki-friendly and am happy to do more. 


I can certainly add some text to  <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Top_10_2013-Top_10> https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Top_10_2013-Top_10 though need the text. Do you have specific text in mind from somewhere else in the T10 or something you've crafted? If not, let me know what info do you want in the text and I'll try a first cut.


Regarding the format of text in the green boxes, can you create a screenshot of what you're seeing and let me know what you want changed? I'm not sure that I'm seeing the same formatting that you are.




PS: Focusing on the most visited pages is a good plan.

Hello from the Wiki Editors/Cleanup working group.

Three of the OWASP Top Ten links are the most popular pages on the OWASP Wiki. Awesome!

The first two are just the normal OWASP Top Ten Category pages and look great.


But this page is also very popular but looks a little awkward as a landing page, I state with respect..... (it gets about 30,000 hits a month)


**** May I suggest that we add some kind of "intro or summary" paragraph at the top of this page and clean up the issues with the font in the green sections to the left?
**** Do you want any help here?

Aloha Dave,
