I just mentioned in another forum that it would be nice to create something like that. From time to time we have people in MoodleDocs that think they are on something associated with their Moodle site. Having a site setting that would point to an "internal" Mediawiki would offer an option to the thoughtful site administrators.
So are you suggesting doing something like a complete install package for the MediaWiki, except to populate it with docs.moodle content and have it available for downloading? I am not sure you would want the development namespace but all this is way over my head.
I was wondering if it were technically possible to "tag" pages in docs.moodle.org, then create a file structure with those pages in it. I was thinking of HTML pages that a site admin could edit. I thought there was some open source that would export Mediawiki pages more than 1 at a time.
Wonder how big the MySQL database is for docs.moodle?
* as I recall the easy way to do Tex w MW used math tags
** check here: http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDLSITE-649, probably more than you wanted to know ;=}
*** I thought I showed you this about six months ago, but I have a mediawiki up demonstrating some uses of ASCIIMath with asciisvg and Mauno has one up where he integrated ASCIIMath and jsxgraph, but I think he disabled asciisvg in that version and I don't know the current status on it.
Thanks! "Having a site setting that would point to an "internal" Mediawiki would offer an option to the thoughtful site administrators. " That is exactly what I'm trying to set up. This is an option in Moodle I forget off the top of my head that lets you point to another support or document site, and combine that with a local or internal copy of moodle docs and we would be all set.
Have you come across the Offline Moodle Docs packages thanks to Antonio Vicent and Eloy Lafuente (stronk7)?
I have, Unfortunately it is not quite what I'm looking for, and would require a lot of work, I think, to get it there. What I would like to do is create a complete media wiki, (LAMP for Linux WAMP for Windows) installer with the moodle docs. That way moodle could be pointed to some place else other than docs.moodle.org.
Since all the information for moodle docs is stored in the DB I was thinking that getting a copy of it would be the easiest way to create and share the docs with those who want to modify or hide things for their own sites. I've seen several other requests for a more robust offline doc’s functionality and don't minde putting it together and making it available for download.
I love the document context functionality; I just don’t want to give too much to users.
