Technology: OAI-ORE Presentation Tool - Nodequeue Terminology
The terminology of nodequeue is a bit confusing.
The term "Nodequeue" refers to a set of rules that control what kind of content can be in the list, who can manipulate the list, etc...
The term "Subqueue" is the actual list, it contains nodes that follow the rules set by the subqueue's parent nodequeue.
The description of subqueue could be confusing to people who are used to working with views and are unfamiliar with nodequeue. It is probably worth re-emphasizing the idea that nodequeue allows the manual selection and ordering of arbitrary nodes. So perhaps something like:
The term "Subqueue" is the actual list—it contains a group of nodes that have been chosen for inclusion in this particular subqueue and conform to the rules set by the parent nodequeue.
So each nodequeue can have 1 or more subqueues, and each subqueue can hold 1 or more nodes.
Modules can restrict the number of subqueues the belong to a nodequeue, such as the "standard nodequeue" which can have exactly one subqueue.
Might be helpful to add an example here, particularly for users who do not have experience using nodequeue. Something like
"For example, you might have a nodequeue that can include only foo nodes, and is editable only by bar role. Several subqueues could then be created, with different sets of foo nodes arranged in various orders by user with bar role." [Return]
