Bases folder

I had problems following the instructions about inserting images in notes because I did not realize that "bases" was a symbolic name representing the folder where the structure of folders with specific genealogy data starts. I thought "bases" was an exact folder name.

I now realize that the word "bases" link back to the installation instructions and folder information, but it was not apparent to me initially.

I suggest that a specific notation is used for names that may be different in the real installations. E.g. use italics for such names as bases and base and mybase And explain what it means on the same page.

//I made proposed edits on the page for the above issue //

Also on this page, I suggest to insert a couple of words about that the folders to store images for notes may need to be created.

The paragraph about the tags.txt file need to be checked. Where is this file? Or does it not exist in version 6.08 ? The wiki and links work for notes, but I cannot find the file tags.txt — Preceding unsigned comment was added by Gunnarhm (talk), 20:44, 30 November 2016‎.

The tags.txt file is not mandatory, and can probably be located at various places as its pathname is supplied to gwd at start time with the parameter -allowed_tags. The documentation needs to be clarified on this point. thanks for the comments.Henri83 (talk) 22:39, 30 November 2016 (CET)
We can perhaps write about how bases folder is organized in distribution for v6. We hope for a big simplification of this “mess” for version 7. — A2 (talk) 10:04, 1 December 2016 (CET)
There is a bases folder in distribution, created when launching gwd or gwd.command in this folder. There is also bases discussing its organisation, whatever its name is!!Henri83 (talk) 10:20, 1 December 2016 (CET)
