Full Version: Documentation links not working?

I am a newcomer, setting up 2 RPi3B+ with OpenPlotter. I have both installs working but am having some difficulties in completing the setups, because some of the pages in the Documentation are without content, just giving the buttons to go forward to the next page or backwards to the previous page. Examples include "Charts", which would seem fairly significant, Signal K Server, Diagnostics, Signal K to NMEA0183 etc. etc. I have had this problem for the past week. Are the links perhaps broken? Huh
here is a link to the old documentation most of it is still the same some tabs have changed
https://sailoog.gitbooks.io/openplotter-...ontent/en/
the newer doc's have never gotten to completion but use them for networking .

as you can see openplotter is made up of several programs working togather..
I am afraid this is not an error Sad

Documentation has been always our weak point. Our time/people/money are limited and we have always prioritized development over documentation, now we know that this is a big error. This is not going to happen anymore, OpenPlotter v2.x.x will come with full online and offline documentation.

someday I will publish a post with status, improvements and news about v2.x.x.
Great news about OpenPlotter 2, many thanks. Thanks for your assistance too, Jim321.

Hi Guys

I'm coming back to this after a break, have been using my Pi2 with openplotter successfully for a while on my X-46

Now i'd like to set up a new Pi3B+ that's been sitting in a drawer for a while with Openplotter

what's the bet way to proceed with a completely fresh build, ie what do i download ??

regards

steve
I think the best approach would be the fresh Image installation, then updating, as set out in the replies to my recent other post on Updating problems on the RPi 3B+

Thanks

I downloaded the 1.0 img
Installed fine
Tried to upgrade to 1.2 but it failed with an error on hostapd

Any suggestions on how to move forwards?

Steve
I haven't trid the Image install approach yet, as I'm away from a monitor at the moment. I think though that hostapd was also covered in the responses I received on my other thread?
