[s1] FAQ 13 (

FAQ 13, an S1 FAQ, currently contains a small amount of information on customising the number of entries per page while using S2. ("If you are using S2, changing the number of entries shown on each page can be done either by editing your individual customisations on a system style, depending on which you are using, or by creating a custom layer or style." and a link to 'lost and wanting out of S2' (#174) and the S2 FAQ category.) If it's going to contain that information, it needs to be more complete, and also should be in the generic Customisation category and not S1. 

So, comments: should it be rewritten to cover both, or should it be S1 only?

(And I intend to spam here in a bit regarding the new theme layer tutorial and potentially overhauling the S2 FAQs. If you're an S2 type, remain tuned in.)

[s2] Theme Layer tutorial and changing FAQ 176 (

Now that there's an S2 theme layer tutorial, it needs to be linked from at least one of the S2 FAQs. From the Support angle, I'd like if it was somewhere fairly obvious; it'll need to be referenced frequently in answers since using a theme layer is often the best way to do anything that's not possible through the S2 wizard.

I'd rather like to see FAQ #176 become "How do I create a theme layer? What are the different S2 layer types?" or similiar, and possibly have the existing content moved to another s2howto post or posts, and link to both the tutorial and the theory-like information. I've never seen anyone ask 'What are the different layer types?', and though the content is useful, it's not being used properly at the moment.

Anyway, looking for thoughts: where should the Theme Layer tutorial be linked? What should happen to FAQ 176? Does it need changing?
