Hey all,

Just wondering what the difference is between a tutorial written here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/

and a mini guide posted in the forums here - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum92.html

Obviously the tutorials bit is some sort of a CMS but is there a difference between the two?

The easiest explanation is that in the Mini guides and how-tos - Simple answers to common questions Subforums subject matter can be contributed by any member:

This forum contains guides and how-tos on common questions covering a variety of computer topics. The guides are split into categories, or subforums, from which you can browse the various solutions.

If you would like to add your own guide, simply use the template pinned to this forum and submit the guide in the proper subforum. A moderator will examine the guide and approve it based on its accuracy, legibility, and completeness. Please note, that when you post your guide, it will not appear until a staff member approves it, so do not be concerned if you do not see it immediately.

When creating a guide, please look at some existing ones to see the format that we are trying to keep. This format allows for easy to understand and read instructions.

Hope this new section of the site is helpful and looking forward to seeing your own submissions! Remember, no submission is a bad submission, and there is nothing quite like seeing something you made helping and being seen by so many other people.


Template is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic39943.html

The topics in http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/ is generally a more comprehensive coverage of subject matter usually written by Grinler. If it is written by other members or staff the content is always approved and published with attribution by Grinler.

Content in the Mini Guides forum can be approved by a wider group of staff as long as it meets the criteria outlined by Grinler above. They are more self help guides than educational tutorials.

Thank you for a good question that I had honestly never thought about before. :thumbup2:
