Let's see how can we import contents from a Moodle new wiki into a Tiddlywiki based file.
First of all you need to download Tiddlywiki file to your computer and open it in your browser. We recommend Firefox 2.0 for this purpose, in fact we recommend it for any purpose
Now you should see something like this:
Important !!! Note that you can only edit tiddlywiki contents if you access to it from local, meaning through the file:// protocol. So if your URL does not start by file:// and starts like http:// you shall not edit, nor import wiki pages into tiddlers... YOU SHALL NOT PASS (Said Gandalf).
The use of Tiddlywiki
You may take a look at this tutorial.
Importing wikipages from a Moodle server
We will use our DFWikilabs http://morfeo.upc.edu/crom server as testground. To set up you own server you may read later How do I get the ImportDFwikisPlugin server side scripts working? but for now you can try this first.
Import as guest user
The ImportDFwikisPlugin offers you an interactive interface, to import one or several wiki pages as guest user from our server follow the next simple steps:
- Mark Checkbox "Login as guest"
- Click on the button Open Wikis. Now the plugin will connect to the server, by default will be our test site http://morfeo.upc.edu/crom but you may change it by editing the SiteUrl tiddler and write your favorite moodle server URL .
- A list of the wikis accessible by you will be displayed. Select the one you want.
- Press "Open pages" Button.
- A list of the available pages will be displayed. Select the one or the set you want.
- Press "Import" Button.
If everything goes OK the Tiddler ImportedTiddlers will appear with the list and local links to the imported tiddlers.
If you avoid step 1 and provide your username and password, then you'll user your Moodle account to access the wikipages, so is probable that you'll have access to more stuff. The password is send using and MD5 algorithm, so don't worry about sniffers and so on.
