Proposed wiki changes
Here are some proposed wiki updates. Discussion welcome.
As of 12-2-09 Noisebridge wiki is running MediaWiki: 1.11.2.
Update to the most current (1.15.1 currently). This will allow image links to work, and wgEnableMWSuggest to work.
# Enable suggestions while typing in search boxes. See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgEnableMWSuggest $wgEnableMWSuggest = true; # improves search functionality a tiny bit http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting $wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting = true; # Tells Mediawiki to use ETag Headers, decreasing irrelevant page loads. See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgUseETag YSlow says the wiki doesn't use ETags right now. $wgUseETag = true;
Poem Extension (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Poem). A useful kludge giving you the <poem></poem> tag. Inside this tag, a single carriage return behaves like a single carriage return. This makes copying and pasting many text documents into the wiki less of a bother.
The Category:Events page says "(Wouldn't it be great if there were a gCal mediawiki plugin so crossposting wasn't needed? Do you know of a good one? Help us!) <- working on this, need to upgrade Mediawiki in order to use some plugins." What extension would enable this functionality?
