Re: “snippet” terminology.

There is a little baggage on the snippet term from the MLP Pack that some here may have used. In the MLP Pack, a snippet is a translatable string. This is pretty different from a Txp form which is generally a larger element that can contain Txp tags.

I now think that partials are the correct terminology for the future. Not snippets and certainly not foms (why that term was chosen i will never know).

Re: [.com] Things that can be improved right now

A quick Google Search only turned up http://shinytoyrobots.com/2011/11/partials-simplify-rails-web-design/

I think partials or snippets or just about anything would work – I just have always thought forms was a confusing name that really impacts people getting started.

Re: [.com] Things that can be improved right now

I changed the mentions of ‘forms’ to ‘code partials’ on the .com slider images a few months back and no one has complained or probably even noticed (well, apart from Destry)
