1. Introduction:

WxWikiServer is a WikiServer based on Wiki:EddiesWiki 1.0, with the features from 1.1 beta and Micheal's mods thrown in afterwards, and adds a mountain of features and bugfixes that add compatability with usemod. It supports all wiki syntax usemod does.

Get the latest version (1.5.11) at http://sourceforge.net/projects/wikiserver. Or, as usual (with a bit of delay) on http://www.wikiserver.org. Also, as of 1.5.8, is available for osx and mandrake linux 10.1.

Even though wxWikiServer is technically a personal wiki, it has been used at wikiserver.org for a while now and versions 1.5.1 and on are very stable, so they can used for an internet wiki just as well.

In fact, you can see a demonstration of it as an internet wiki here -

3. Features

If you want to contribute to the feature list, feel free :). There are a _lot_ of features in wxWikiServer....

3.1. Some features:

A simple list (as opposed to the more elaborate use of Headings):

Ryan:

Thank you every so much for the recent flurry of improvements to this software. I am simply delighted by everything I have found so far, especially:

It is a real pleasure to finally have some time to look around again and resume my contribuitions, after a couple of weeks of aggrivating interrupts. Finding your enhancements made it especially enjoyable.

I'll have some time this weekend to really work with Version 5.1.11RC2. After that, I'll try to respond to your request for further suggestions.

Thanks, again. -- HansWobbe

3.1.1. UseMod features

wxWikiServer supports all usemod features in the 1.0 distribution....

3.1.2. Table of Contents

1.5.9 now supports table of contents like MeatBall does (although it is quite beta).

Just make sure your headings are like the on this page, put the toc html tag before or after the text - it doesn't matter :).

3.1.3. Nested includes of Tables

http://www.wikiserver.org:25852/HansWobbe#WikiFootnote_512

3.1.4. Bi-directional Footnotes

A very simple-to-use markup that consists of a character value enclosed in [] (square brackets,, that appears at various points throughout a page and once at the start of a new line. Its effect is to create hyperlinks from where-ever the references appear to the first (ideally only) target location in the file. These are 'bi-directional links, since clicking on the target 'named anchor' that is generated, cause a jump back to the first occurance of the reference.

Since the range of the the value appears to be unconstrained, it is possible to create relatively useful ranges. For example:

1.5.11:

Bugs Fixed

Error: Invalid regular expression '(?:\s+\#include|^\#include).*(<.*?>)': quantifier operand invalid when using the source highlighter and certain parts of it would not work <space>#<space> should be accepted as table of contents headers. == # whatever without a finilizing equal then it would only print out a >. [RC5]

Features/Improvements

4.2. Version 1.5.10: 2/19/05

  1. Fixed a bug where it would crash if you went to recentchanges or dumpallpages
  2. Fixed a bug where it would print junk after the table of contents
  3. Got rid of a lot of useless debugging info after it printed the table of contents

5. Bugs and Feature Requests

Post bugs, feature requests, and patches to the sourceforge page at http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/wikiserver.

5.1. Vicki Kerr comments/suggestions

- The second is the way single quotes work; whereas most wikis recognize two or three quotes (which can be combined) and require them to enclose the text to be affected, EW recognizes 2, 3, or "4 or more" quotes, and doesn't require the text to be affected to be enclosed. -- Vicki Kerr

- For the second, I would suggest something very similar to the way thet Ward's wiki works, but with more careful checking of how quotes match, so that the cases that are not processed correctly on Ward's wiki would be handled properly. That is quite tricky to get right, but would probably make more sense than the present, unique to EW (I think) approach. I realize that the present method does allow text to be enclosed, but there are certain cases where quotes-enclosed text is rendered one way on Ward's wiki and differently on EW. Relatively few pages will already exist that make use of unmatched quotes (i.e., emphasis continuing to the end of the line), so now would not be a bad time to make a change. -- Vicki Kerr

Anyone think this is better than the current way? -- Ryan Norton

5.2. Hiearchic Linking

Hello Ryan, what do you think of http://www.oddmuse.org/cgi-bin/wiki/Hierarchic_Linking_Module_Proposal also for WxWikiServer? (or now it's called only WikiServer again I suppose) --TonyArmani
