Wiki Update - April 2014

Postby kentsmith9 » Tue Apr 08, 2014 6:46 am

The Wiki version has been recently updated to better support our work for our upcoming translations.

One of the most visible updates is a new editor interface that appears as your default setting. You can change back to the original setting by going to your preferences page on editing and you can either:

Check the Show WikiTextEditor

or

Uncheck the Show edit toolbar

You can also use these same settings to enable the WikEd plugin.

I just noticed I am getting the same repeated update notice on Greasemonkey in Firefox that I had not noticed before. I will likely disable the update check as well.

I am going to see if we can get it added as a gadget to our Wiki so it can be used without having the extension in the browser.


Awesome. Cause I felt like the fool for trying to install it in my user/config profile, not knowing that it had to be installed on the admins side. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Sadly, for me, I get the update warning every time I re-open chrome. A few times a day at least.

I had a hell of a time trying to get it installed without it, let alone tapermonkey to load it. Ended up having to rename the file wikied.user.js

In regards to the WikiEd, where can I find some detailed instructions to install it in Chrome using Tapermonkey? Keep getting an Update redirect every time I go to any wiki site. If need be, I can create a separate topic to ask about this so as not to bog down this topic with unneeded discussion.

That rich text editor annoyed me from Day 1 but I cut my typesetting teeth on (Plain!) TeX :ugeek: :ugeek: and still prefer it to Word so that's hardly surprising. Most of the time I turned it off but I didn't realize there was a preference to turn it off permanently. Thanks!

I just received word from Waze management that they have disabled the problematic Rich Text Editor from the server side for now. The settings to disable it are not required. The original editor is the default (and only built-in) editor currently.

The WikEd plugin is still available and a good choice for anyone doing significant edits.

I know a few people have loaded it into Chrome (I have not yet as I am still FF).
