Subject: wiki.geeklog.net migrating to new hosting soon

We will announce here after the wiki site has gone live in the new hosting environment. The new hosting includes the latest version of MediaWiki.


Some Known Issues:

* Some articles were created with raw HTML rather than wikitext. The most notable thing that breaks from this are HTML anchor tags, although there are others. Editing will be required to convert raw html articles over to wiki syntax.

* Some special characters (such as the trademark TM) caused a few articles to not display correctly. The content does appear in the edit screen. A simple fix is to edit the document and immediately save it (or remove the offending character) which seems to fix the article display.


After the site is live in the new hosting, please feel free to fix articles, convert to wiki syntax, etc.

Please report wiki issues in this thread.

Regards,

Dan Stoner

Hi Dan,

I found an issue on the Geeklog.net redesign page:

http://wiki.geeklog.net/index.php/Geeklog.net_Redesign

When you view it no content is displayed besides the header, column and title but if I click on the edit link I can see the content in the edit pane. Do you know why it is not displaying?

Tom

This is caused by some kind of character set issue. The content is present, it just isn't displaying in the browser.

The resolution:

1. Click "Edit" on the article and then "Show changes".

2. You will see side-by-side where the troubleshome character is. It is frequently punctuation such as TM.

3. Without making any actual changes, Save the page and the character will be converted automagically and the page will display ok.
