#5370 assigned Bug/Something is broken

Mailing list documentation and Control Panel presentation need work

Description

Today when trying to advise a client on how to set up Mailman lists I realized that both the documentation and the presentation of options in the Control Panel are pretty confusing.

In the Control Panel, neither the Email List nor the High Volume Email List tabs give any guidance about which should be used in a given situation. Also, the title of both tabs' pages is "Email Lists," which is also confusing.

I'd suggest either having guidance right there on both of those pages OR linking from those pages to the documentation in the MFPL FAQ, but that documentation is also pretty confusing, inaccurate in some cases where it refers to options in the Control Panel, and needs some editorial cleanup (there's a sentence that cuts off entirely.)

Thanks for pointing this out Jack. I'll put it on the list of red changes that need to be made along with #4907 and a wordpress web app. Though if you can improve the instruction set in the FAQs, please feel free to modify the wiki.

Awesome, thanks ross. I'd like to take a stab at improving the wiki but just don't have the bandwidth for that right now... maybe in the future!
