Updated Book content type field order

Quick update: In the spirit of continuous improvement and usability; I changed the order of the fields in the book content type. I wanted the field order to match the logical flow of the required tasks at hand.
The result is an edit page that follows the current work flow for the site migration project.

  1. Update migration URL
  2. Check content
  3. Update taxonomy terms

Following that same workflow in the former field order was a little confusing.

Here's the old order of fields on the edit page

After we’re done with the site migration we’ll update that order again.

What is the change log

This is a means of documenting site updates and sharing them with all the site administrators.

Back end description, in short:
I post here, taking care to choose the nested categories:

The nested heirarchy of category tags that allows me to customize what updates will be visible on what web site.

Next I create a block in the drupal site that aggregates the rss feed from this category and displays it for administrators.

Here's an example of an included rss feed on the drupal web site

This way the users are kept up-to speed on site updates, changes and modifications.
