The "other" CANview

See reply at User_talk:Rjf#The_.22other.22_CANview, It wasn't removed.--Rjf 15:04, 16 June 2006 (CDT)

Changes to site structure...

I would prefer we discuss major changes to the site structure and menu system before implementing them... For example, at this moment (in the history of PHEVs) I don't see a need to distinguish between production PHEVs and conversion PHEVs as I'm not yet satisfied with the level of production PHEV commitment from the manufacturers. I assume that's where you're headed with the new PHEV_Conversions page, which are already presented at Plug-In_Hybrids#Prius_PHEVs? What do you think? --Rjf 13:09, 18 June 2006 (CDT)

Most certainly! I have reverted the navigation, which makes the PHEV_Conversions page no longer necessary, which I vae deleted. DavideAndrea 13:36, 18 June 2006 (CDT)


Ryan, I created the page Hybrids-Plus. Would you mind coming up with some way of linking to it from the rest of the site? Thanks! --DavideAndrea 09:56, 27 June 2006 (CDT)

I've added Hybrids-Plus to Template:Prius PHEV Options which is included at Prius PHEV & Plug-In Hybrids, aswell as the main menu. --Rjf 12:08, 27 June 2006 (CDT)

Unfortunently I don't think that would work because the nesting menus would expand the first instance of Production HEV or PHEV Conversions when those pages are visited and thus never expand the subsaquent instances. On the current Hybrid(Production Hybrid) page is a list of all current HEV's, and the menu expands to those vehicles available at dealers. If there are PHEV conversions of these production vehicles there will be a link on the main Hybrid page and from that vehicles stock page to it's main conversion page explaining it's PHEV exploits. The Plug-In Hybrids(PHEV) page then lists production vehicles like the DaimlerChrysler Sprinter Van, Saab 9-3 PHEV, etc aswell as all of our various PHEV conversions. I've tried to write any other page which might be applicable to multiple vehicles in a non-vehicle specific manner, but IMA and HSD can only appear on the menu once so they go under the first vehicle to use them, thought they are not PHEV toppics. Things like Tap Emulation or SOC Drift are generic PHEV toppics and so appear under the PHEV terms in the menu. Thanks for the new page and the suggestion. --Rjf 12:50, 27 June 2006 (CDT)

Prius PHEV TechInfo in Sidebar

per User talk:Rjf#Prius PHEV TechInfo in Sidebar

Thanks for putting a link in the sidebar for the Prius Tech Info page! --DavideAndrea 07:06, 4 July 2006 (CDT)

No problem, thanks for all your help arround the site, those pics are great. BTW, are you working directly with the Hybrids-Plus team? Be sure to let me know if I can help you guys with anything that hasn't made it to the website yet... --Rjf 12:36, 4 July 2006 (CDT)

Prius Pack Voltages?

I see some unusuail pack voltages listed here:Prius PHEV TechInfo#Battery voltage which don't seem to match what I've collected here:Toyota Prius Battery Specs. It's possible that I missed this change in the 2006 Prius, if so could you point me to a referance. Otherwise perhaps you're refering to some other vehicle like the HH/RX400h? --Rjf 12:57, 4 July 2006 (CDT)

per User talk:Rjf#You cleared my confusion .28Lexus vs Prius batt vtg.29 No problem, and yes Wikis are great! That battery specs page may need to be renamed to Hybrid Battery Specs so that it can include all the other vehicles instead of just the Toyota/Lexus specs... perhaps someday... --Rjf 18:32, 4 July 2006 (CDT)

Nice Comp table at Template:Prius PHEV Options

That is a very nice comp table you've built at Template:Prius PHEV Options, though it may be a little bit to large for this template which is supposed to be a quick list of all the options as it's included on a number of pages. I may move it to its own template or article perhaps included in the main Prius PHEV page. Then I can further compress the old PHEV Options template to be included on each of the individule Prius Project pages... Good work and Thanks! --Rjf 23:53, 8 July 2006 (CDT)

Thanks. I debated for a long time where to put it: in the template or in the Prius PHEV page. My preference would be for the latter. But, in the end, I figured that you would place it where you felt it was the most appropriate (thanks in advance for doing that), so it didn't matter where I put it. After it has its final home, I'd like to contact all the parties involved (you being one) and ask to complete/correct that table as far as their own project is concerned. --DavideAndrea 10:19, 9 July 2006 (CDT)
Perhaps we'll leave it where it's at now and create a new Template:Prius PHEV Options Summary for the previous brief version which will appear on each projects main page. Speaking of which I'd also like to change the first row of project names to local links to their full pages, I see you have links to each projects website in one of the following rows anyway. If each company/project is to stop by and update their information then I'll need to remember to remove the protection from that template page. Nearly all of the pages are protected such that only users may edit them, while still allowing anonymous edits of each articles discussion page. Anyway, I'll be without a network connection at home for about a week or so and may not get to some of these changes for a while. ps. you can use | colspan=6 | row contents in a table instead of multiple empty | lines... --Rjf 22:02, 9 July 2006 (CDT)

I made the changes you suggested. The Colspan doesn't behave the same as what I had before, but I prefer the way it looks now; so, thank you. Would like me to move the table into the Prius PHEV page? There's really no reason for it to be in a template. I'll gladly move it, jut lem me know your preference. Then you don't have to worry about permissions and creating templates. --DavideAndrea 00:16, 10 July 2006 (CDT)
