Could be a bug

Edit - oh, wow. This is old o.O Just received a notification from Wikidot in my email inbox about the page, and therefore I assumed it was a new one.

Nicely done!

The order= in ListPages does not appear to work when is used inside a %%content%% element and formatted with a live template.

It's awesome ;-)

The words are hard to read on your blog though … maybe you could make the preview image size a bit bigger?

Edit: I see that you've removed the preview image and have the CSI instead. Much easier to read :)

Try 'MegaUpload' free plan has 20Gb of space and fast upload and download, Download has 15-25 sec delay.

If you view source on this page and examine the code block, you'll see how I did it.

Oops, should've thought of that :)

Re: How are you doing this now? by leigerleiger, 16 Sep 2009 14:08

Can you explain how to do this?

If you view source on this page and examine the code block, you'll see how I did it. I actually uploaded the overlib.js files on another page and referenced them inside the html code block.

What advantages are there of having it built-in as a module?

  1. As you say, it's way easier for new users.
  2. It's easier for all users.
  3. You can make a popup work on the normal Wikidot syntax part of your page. Currently, it has to be used in an iframe only.
  4. It's a hassle using code blocks and iframes.
  5. If it works out, we could include Wikidot syntax inside the popup so something like this might actually work well.


My understanding is that you're asking for something to be implemented that you can (and have) easily added to this website inside a code block?

  • Can you explain how to do this? :P This looks cool…
  • What advantages are there of having it built-in as a module? Easier for new users I can think of… anything else? :/

My php skills are pretty basic. If we ask Gabrys really nicely, maybe he would write a tutorial on how to create a module for WDOS.

A nice idea, Ed. Would you please create a wiki page on the design section of the blog, with your proposed documentation? Then I can move that to the design section and we can discuss it. That always helps a lot to turn ideas into actual code.

Excellent Stuff! :)

EDIT: is there a way to implement this to a custom installation of Wikidot? I was trying to create my own modules and failed.

I mis-spoke a bit. I like that it's easy to roll back if something in an update doesn't work. The bulk of the testing I did a while back was when I was trying to migrate my data from a very early OS version (like rev 39) to something like rev 393. By then, things had moved from Apache to Lighttpd server and had many, many feature additions and database changes.

It took me several tries to export my old Wikidot data from the the database and import it cleanly into the new database. After each failure, I was able to roll back without much fuss and try again. That's part of my "concern" with the latest revisions. I'll want to migrate again at some point, but things are running smoothly and it's a time investment I can't make right now (the winter will be better when my golf passion doesn't get in the way!) There's a number of new features I'd like to use at work, but they can wait.

The only changes I made to the source were some default text that is displayed in some places (account creation, some error messages, etc.).


There's no real need for a new version on my account, I'd just be playing around with it a bit and there's no telling when I'll actually get around to it.


When you say test stuff and roll back, you mean changes to wikidot's source? What kind of stuff do you change, if I may ask?

One main reason I use a VM is that it's a lot easier for me to test stuff and then roll back changes if I break something. I do actually have an extra PC that I've probably wiped and installed WDOS at least fifty times over the last year and a half.

Since the OS project has taken a significant turn (for the better, I think), I haven't messed with it as much lately. The main reason there is that I don't think the version I run at my office will be easy to migrate. I haven't actually tried yet, so I'm really not sure how hard it will be.

If you have extra hardware, the ISO image is bootable and can actually be installed on a physical PC - it doesn't have to be a VM. That image is based on a working, but older version so it is missing some of the latest features. In general the old Open Source code lagged pretty far behind the live Wikidot site. The new repository is supposed to have code that the live Wikidot site hasn't seen yet.

Would you be interested in a newer ISO if I can get a clean install of the latest code working? I don't really need an extra project, but it shouldn't be too bad based on the recent activity I've been reading on


Great site =) Sorry I didn't find it sooner.

I was actually just searching for this very thing — wikidot on a virtual machine, mainly because I wanted to see what it was
like to install and run wikidot in open source, and maybe even later try an actual VM wikifarm — without having
to shell out for server space or put up with the poor performance that comes with free mysql/php servers.

But seeing as how you have this package all together, I was wondering what other uses it might have beyond just experimenting with the install and management.

Actually, I'd love to have a purely offline program that does what wikidot does, but this setup seems a bit heavy for that type of duty — 512-1gb RAM.

I've been meaning to try a test install and just haven't had time yet.

I'm on vacation this week so probably won't get to it for a couple weeks. I'd like to try it on a host that supports PostgreSQL, but unless I can find a free host, I'm not sure that will happen any time soon. My current host only supports MySQL.

wdLite is a light Wikidot installer, that I've made to ease the process of installing a single-wiki Wikidot.

Just Wondering what WDLite is. I found it on the repos this morning. Here is the link to the files:

And it says that quake created this.
