People reading master docs


(jpeg729) #1

Many, many questions on this forum come from people who have read the docs for the master branch and wonder why their code doesn’t work.

A little research reveals that the redirections are inconsistent. Maybe that is how so many people end up reading the master docs by mistake.

http://pytorch.org/docs -> http://pytorch.org/docs/0.3.1/
http://pytorch.org/docs/nn -> http://pytorch.org/docs/master/nn.html

Can I suggest that a little strategic renaming might go a long way? Namely this…

http://pytorch.org/docs/master/… -> http://pytorch.org/docs/dev/

Can I also suggest adding to all pages of the master docs some sort of highly visible banner that says “dev version” next to a link to the docs for the latest stable version?

Definitely sounds like a good idea. I’ve opened an issue here for your feature request: https://github.com/pytorch/pytorch/issues/5738, feel free to continue this discussion here or there.
