Status of migration from the old wiki

Quick note from waldo: I brought everything over from the old wiki. At least I think i did. Note that some of the link names ahve changed to be more uniform and/or compliant with the neo->neo/c change. --W


Unfortunately, sardisson, Ovvldc, and others continued to edit the old wiki until it was defaced and closed on 19 Jan 2005. So we have to update every page (and some newly-created pages) to get back in sync. Remember to verify that the link/page names are the same here, r.f. Waldo above fixing our Neo->Neo/C mess :-) Plus that NeoWiki:Copyrights link at the bottom needs its details :-)

MediaWiki creates its titles/splits words on underscores (Rv_Bm not RvBm; displayed as Rv Bm), for future links.

What's Been Done

  • The "Neo/J Tips and Hints" section is now up-to-date with the old wiki. --sardisson 02:40, 21 Jan 2005 (CST)
  • The "OpenOffice.org/X11" section should now be up-to-date with the old wiki. --sardisson 03:10, 21 Jan 2005 (CST)
  • The entire Neo/J section is now be up-to-date with the old wiki (plus some new items). --sardisson 04:52, 21 Jan 2005 (CST)

What's Left To Do

  • The Neo/C section. (Remember Waldo simplifed the page structure here)
  • The More info section
    • N.B. I've already made a few tweaks (X11 and Mac OS X links, Neo/C fixes, etc.) in the History article, so go very carefully when copying over updates (maybe nothing's changed since W brought it over originally?), or save it for me for this weekend. --sardisson 04:52, 21 Jan 2005 (CST)
  • Plus that NeoWiki:Copyrights link at the bottom needs its details :-)

Wiki software successfully installed.

Even Smaller Section

WikiWords don't seem to work here; unsure whether this is good or bad.

Overall, MediaWiki will take a little bit of getting used to (the new/different formatting conventions in the wiki), but it seems nice enough in my limited time playing around (hmm, how do I set my timezone?) If it can lock it down a bit (so that people at least must log in--deter the casual folks who I think are the ones messing with things now) it might be worth it, if Jake feels he can get the template set up OK.

Lots of pages in the old wiki are only linked from one other page, so care will be needed bringing it over....

More sections

I personally dislike WikiWords because they are too techie and frequently you do not want them to link. Time zone is set in your preferences page, BTW. I find MediaWiki nice to administer as well, though I haven't tried editing the skins.

New version (1.4.0) is coming out soon (I helped test it - busy little ant). Not that many new features that you'll need here, though.

BTW, you can set it up to only allow registered users to edit by putting the following line into your localsetting.php:

$wgWhitelistEdit = true;

Another section

So, I now think this looks really busy, too many little "edit" buttons all over and tocs and links and so forth. (Thanks, Waldo, for bringing everything over...it made things easier to see in a real-life comparison!) Don't know if editing the templates can help here or not. Hmm. What're the latest feelings about this, jake?
