Why, are you keen to start writing some? I can provide you with that list :-).

All my HOWTOs are ones that I want for myself, and you will probably notice that there are few people involved in writing Slackware HOWTOs. Incidentally, here's one for a rainy bank holiday Sunday:

Also as follow-up I've added some notes on setting up the RPi as an access point:

I would like to create a HOWTO on setting up LXC containers. I created an account, but I don't see how to create a new page. Do I need to request special permissions, or am I missing something obvious?

See instructions here: https://www.dokuwiki.org/page#create_a_page

Of course you'll need to be logged in.

Those methods all indicate that there should be a link to edit an existing page or create a new page, but I don't see any options like that. I think I am lacking some necessary privileges. Even if I click my user page, I get this:

You've followed a link to a topic that doesn't exist yet. If permissions allow, you may create it by clicking on “Create this page”.
But I don't see any "Create this page" button.

This is not a button, rather the label of a tab on top of the page.

To check, type this URL in your browser:
https://docs.slackware.com/playground:montagdude

EDIT: I am puzzled as I don't see your user page in slackdocs ???

The attached screenshot shows what I see, so yes this looks like a permission issue. The second screenshot you attached just show in addition that your user page was not created.


I suggest that you contact directly the admin team, cf. https://docs.slackware.com/slackdocs:contact

The front page of the site has this text:
Code:
Edit This Wiki

You must create an account to edit pages in this Wiki.
In order to fight spam, your new account will not be able to edit this Wiki immediately.
One of the Wiki admins will have to enable it first, which usually does not take long.
I enabled your account just now, after I returned home. Try again.

Thanks, Eric. I indeed missed that. I will check again in a few hours when I get home.

Something still puzzles me. I wouldn't have expected to see "montagdude" on the top right of the page in screenshot #2 of post #382 if montagdude's account creation was not yet enabled when he posted it.

The account was created and enabled, it just didn't have edit permissions until manually approved by an admin (which Eric later did).

I had forgotten as well (or it wasn't the case when I registered... I honestly don't remember). I only knew that from Eric's post above where it stated that an admin had to enable edit permissions.
