Hello my Boss recently gave me the assigment to print our entire Wiki in order to have a hard copy in case of emergency. I wouldn't have a problem if that was once but he insists on doing it weekly. I googled long enough to know that there is no easy way of going around this and thought that maybe I could write a script in order to find all links on a page and print out its contents. I really have not idea how to go about this and any suggestions would be more than helpful. Thank you in …

Hello, I've found quite a few answers on this site. I was a network admin, however these days you have to wear multiple hats and as such I'm learning Python at work and my main source for answers when stuck is of course, the net. So here is my problem. I'm converting a pre 0.96 app to 1.4 (django/python). I've fixed most of the changes however my code seems right even when compared to others projects. In fact, just the other day I was passing through the views and everything was semi-working but now I just get the following error. …

Hi All, I am trying to start writing a wiki-ish CMS I've been contemplating for a while now. the content will include pics, html content, and should be stored in a database (the current pick is postgres) A few questions for the more experienced folk 'round here: 1. how do I plan such a database - is there a ready-made data type for a webpage, or do I need to build a table for every component (e.g. pictures). Is there a ready template for such a thing? 2. Python web frameworks - which would be best suited for this? Django …

Hello dear Community. Just to know if any of you have developed MediaWiki extensions, and how do you do that? I´ve been looking in the web and I have found nothing at all, or at least, nothing clear enough to create a simple "Hello world" extension to media wiki. Any information will be truly thanked Regards,

* MediaWiki version: 1.16.0 beta3 * PHP version: 5.3.3 * MySQL version: 5.1.41 Hello. I've been trying to develop a loader project in C#, but in order to upload a file, the user is supposed to be authenticated in the Wiki website. For now, all what I've got is to use "[[api.php?action=query&meta=userinfo]]", but I guess it needs the cookies. Everytime I visit that site from my browser, it gives me the right ID and username, but when I try to access from the C# Web Request, it just keeps giving me the ID as 0 and as a non-authenticated user. How can I …

[ATTACH=right]16135[/ATTACH]A day after Wikileaks dropped one of the biggest leaked bombshells on the U.S. government, perhaps since the Pentagon Papers, typing wikileaks.org into a browser is likely to get you nothing more than a blank browser window. The somewhat mysterious collective site released over 91,000 secret reports related to the Afghan War that paint a bleak picture of the war effort. The New York Times, (UK) Guardian and Germany's Der Spiegel were given access to the documents a month previous to their going live on Wikileaks. The New York Times released its reporting on the document on Sunday. The posting …

Even though most people are familiar with Wikipedia, many may not realize that creating a wiki is another social media tactic that business can leverage. Thus, have you used a wiki to build your client's online presence? I have managed a few wikis in the past and it takes time to build and keep it active. It does require lots of user generated content to make it a rich and engaging experience. What do you think?

It has been a long time coming, but Google has at last approached the Wiki concept for search. With the announcement of the SearchWiki tool, Google now has something that lets users have a fair degree of control over results and adds sharing into the search mix. Control such as the customisation of results with the ability to re-rank, add and comment upon them. So you can move certain results to the top of the page if you disagree with the default ordering, where it will stay when you do the same search the next time (if you ever do …

The Wall Street Journal and others are reporting today about [URL=http://knol.google.com/k/knol]Knol[/URL], a Google service now in beta that's being compared to Wikipedia, a comparison that I believe is incorrect. While Wikipedia attempts to accumulate all the world's knowledge and information as a sort of user-made encyclopedia, Knol seems more like a collection of knowledge based on the experiences of its contributors. Also unlike Wikipedia, Knol contributors are clearly identified. I respect the Journal for its fair and objective news reporting, which is usually free of opinion (except where noted, of course). This particular piece, however, injects the writer's opinion as …

MindTouch [URL="http://wiki.mindtouch.com/Press_Room/Press_Releases/2008-07-23"]announced today[/URL] at the [URL="http://en.oreilly.com/oscon2008/public/content/home"]O'Reilly Open Source Convention[/URL] (OSCON) that a new version of its collaboration app MindTouch Deki "Kilen Woods" is ready for its close-up. Though it seems lately like you can't swing a cat (not that I would) without bumping into a new collaboration tool or suite of applications for the enterprise, you know you've got a good product on your hands when [URL="http://mashable.com/2008/05/07/mozillas-tower-of-babel-powered-by-mindtouch/"]the folks at Mozilla use it[/URL]. In addition to MindTouch Deki's collaborative capabilities, its also billed as a "collective intelligence platform." Deki is clearly a useful way to keep information flowing among employees, but …

I spent the day yesterday at [URL="http://www.enterprise2conf.com/"]Enterprise 2.0[/URL] in Boston, all in all a fascinating day and great conference, but what caught my attention was a presentation by two representatives of the CIA, and I’m not talking about the Culinary Institute of America, but *the* CIA, as in the preeminent intelligence gathering organization in the U.S. It seems that the CIA has found that the wiki is a very efficient way to analyze large amounts of information and has dubbed their offering: [URL="https://www.cia.gov/news-information/featured-story-archive/intellipedia-marks-second-anniversary.html"]Intellipedia[/URL]. Fancy that. According to speakers Don Burke, who has the very cool title of Intellipedia Doyen (which …

News Story Wikigoogle

Well not quite, but the Wikisari search engine could make quite a splash if Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and Amazon.com have anything to say in the matter. Using the same basic technology as Wikipedia, and with a provisional launch date planned for the first half of 2007, will be a people-powered, network based search engine. The name, as always, is interesting in that Wiki is Hawaiian for quick and asari is from the Japanese for rummaging search. If Wikisari can live up to being a quick rummaging search that brings in the people-powered concept then it will certainly be worth …

News Story Intel 2.0

So Intel has announced, at the Web 2.0 Conference, that it is launching into the Web 2.0 space with [URL="http://www.suitetwo.com/"]SuiteTwo[/URL]. This integrated suite, courtesy of a collaboration with numerous partner companies, sees Intel positioning itself in the same way as Google does with its services. That is a collection of interconnected services sharing a common UI. Certainly, when it comes to Web 2.0, Intel appears to have done its homework before jumping into bed with partner companies, choosing some very well respected and high profile names to sleep with: Six Apart, Socialtext and NewsGator for example. Not forgetting SpikeSource which …

What is a Wiki? I have seen the word before when installing eGroupware, a web-based emailing and calendar program that could give Microsoft Exchange a real run for the money. But I haven't had the chance to really think about what a Wiki was until I used Wikipedia, and looked at the technology. Wiki's are cool! According to Wikipedia, a Wiki "... enables documents to be written collectively (co-authoring) in a simple markup using a web browser. A single page in a wiki is referred to as a "wiki page", while the entire body of pages, which are usually highly …

What, exactly, is free speech? What is allowed by the US 1st Amendment? Where are the lines drawn concerning what people can say, and how they can be liable for their statements? "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." I caught an article the other day that talked about some employees BLOGGING after hours discussing how bad their business was, and how …
