looks like there's a bug in the lastest release of n wiki... in the installation process
I have issued this afternoom a special, version for the moodle HQ to review it... I did not anounce as a release it because it does not contain bugfixes nor relevant features only code refactoring...
I've just downloaded the latest moodle 1.6 deleted the stdwiki module and copied this Wiki candidate and it installed smoothly...
On monday we will try to release a deeply tested and stable version but for those who have trouble and need an urgent solution maybe that's it.
I'll be the weekend in france so see you on monday guys
Ludo out to France!
yesterday I made some tests with the last releases of NWiki and Moodle 1.6.3. Now, I am able to give you some good news and some other bad.
Uninstalling old wiki before installing NWiki makes the system run perfectly.
Overwrite old wiki with our wiki, it's not a good idea. Our module crashes, old wiki content is no accessible and it's not possible to create NWiki instances.
- Do not install NWiki if you are using e-Wiki.
- If you don't have any instance of e-Wiki, uninstall it first.
- People who is working with NWiki will not have any problem with upgrading
My teacher, Ludo, said that on Monday there will be a new release... I don't thing so. I will have to revise, rewrite and test lot of code.
Another time, I'm sorry.
Can you please tell me how you go about uninstalling e-wiki.
About a week ago I too had the same problem on install that Salam Abdallah reproted as follows:
After installing the NWiki for moodle 1.6.x using Ludo instructions, I keep getting an error message:
"Theres's an error in page location"I also posted in this forum at the time:
It appears that the discussion of this problem and, possibily, a fix for the problem is being discussed here in this discussion topic, in the discussion topic that Salam created and the one I created which is at the URL above.
Has the problem, highlighted in yellow above, been addressed? It is not clear to me whether this has been resolved.
All of the work of your team and your professor are very much appreciated,
I'll start working in e-wiki migration protocol this monday morning.
Finally I got nwiki to work, and this is what I have done:
- removed the old wiki using Administration ->Modules->wiki->delete
- removed the wiki directory moodle/mod/wiki using File Manager in cpanel
- unzipped Wiki_rev2006101001.zip
It is working fine now, except that I am getting double square brackets around the blocks heading and tabs label (see attachment)
Also after installing the Recent Activity block, I got an error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: print_recent_activity() in /home/noteecom/public_html/moodle/blocks/recent_activity/block_recent_activity.php on line 27
This latest information that you have provided is most appreciated. Thanks so much for sharing what you found with all of us.
I think we will wait for what Piguli is working on over this weekend ... and it is likely that his efforts will be assisted with what you have discovered.
The problem is probably very complex so that it may take some more time to be resolved.
Witn my best regards,

I've just returned from France and met with Pigui... It seems that the solution will come with a little delay. The e-wiki->n wiki migration process has not been revised on the last 4 moths ( no news good news ) and now seems a little out of date.
So, right now the latest nwiki cannot be installed smoothly over a working e-wiki.
NO we will commit all our resources to the e-wiki->n wiki migration process... but since there are so many variables to consider it may take at least a week.
Please hold on and sorry for any inconvenience.
I have several teachers using eWiki's.
In the old days dfWiki was a nice and friendly extra module you could install separate of eWiki.
Now I have to kill (or transform) eWIki before I can use again dfWiki.
Why not deliver again a friendly parallel version? (for me )
dfwiki is still there, and we still maintain it ( this week (I hope) Pigui will come up with some bugfixes for dfwiki. But the new wiki is taking so much work and we cannot keep two paralel development lines, so all the new stuff will go to n wiki.
OOPS, so I still can use it? separate from eWiki?
I understand your choice to maintain one thread, I hope it will end up in the mainstream! Good luck!
n wiki kills ewiki, dfwiki gets along with it. DFwiki will be maintained and kept stable ( I'm even considering to adapt it do it for 1.7 juts for you )
Thanks and cheers
Im using Moodle 1.7.Ive installed dfwiki_rev2006070300.zip (first I deleted the old wiki) but I have problem with adding content.Whatever I write I get "No content" message.
