Update for PmWiki activity September 11 - September 27, 2017: documentation, internationalization, 20+ recipes and 60+ skins updated or discussed, discussions about blog features, URL approvals, skin testing, replace-on-save patterns, and databases as a page storage (MySQL and MongoDB), cookbook bug reports and patches.
Subversion changes to the core
- Fix bug with WikiWord links.
- The documentation was updated, see below.
On the mailing list:
- A thread about an external link that fails to be approved (the link comes from an included page, so it must be approved on that original page).
- A thread about testing skins from the URL. On pmwiki.org, one can add "
?skin=name" to view the current page with a different skin, or "
?setskin=name" to change the skin for the current session. The recipe SkinChange does this and can be installed on other wikis.
- A thread about a custom
- A question should the recipes SelectQuery, DataQuery, and DataPlates be updated by their developer.
- Can PmWiki pages be populated using a database like Mongo DB? (yes, write a custom PageStore class, examples).
In the PITS: PmWiki Issue Tracking System (please comment, vote):
- BlogFeatures (This is a follow-on to PITS:00028, requesting blog support in PmWiki) Scheduling with automatic publication should be considered as a potential feature.
