http://wackowiki.com/WikiEdit is a good solution.
I think adopting to ewiki syntax would'nt be too hard
In my opinion HTML instead of wikiML is even better solution now that we have HTMLArea . (diffs calculation should be based on DOM in this case - thats would take some coding..)
Hi Jurgis -
You should have tried it first. The wiki module in Moodle (based on efurtwiki) uses the HTMLArea editor, if you specify it when you set up the wiki.
I installed the Wiki module but I dont see an option for using the HTMLArea editor, I only get the following options.
Allow students to contribute to the Wiki:
Print the title on every Wiki-Page:
Allow safe HTML:
Allow binary files:
Initial Wiki Content:
I installed the Wiki option on the 31 of March this year, perhaps there's are more up to date version?
Do you know how to do that or can I help ?
Hi Michael, I downloaded my copy from the Modules and add-ons seciton of moodle.org.
I've taken a look at the CVS, but got a bit confused as to what I should download so decided to leave things alone. If there are simple instructions I'll give it a go.
I discovered Wiki's a year ago and was blown away by the concept, a WYSIWYG editor makes them even better.
Thanks for your help
You need to download a cvs-client for your OS (in Linux, it is usually included), for Windows, you need something like wincvs. Then, you can use the instructions given on the download page section 3 http://moodle.org/mod/resource/view.php?id=8 and checkout "/cvsroot/moodle co contrib"
Or, if you want, mail me and I will send you a zip of the current version ...
The Wiki module that I have installed seems to work very well, havn't hit a problem yet.
I deleted the old Wiki module through the Admin interface, downloaded the new module on the modules download page and it all works now, including the wysiwyg editor. I remember exploring Wiki's a year ago and people were still trying to work out how to implement a wysiwyg editor.
Cant quite work out the CSV updater thing, downloaded the windows client, did an update, not quite sure what it did, but I do have some nice little green and red folders now
Thanks for your help..
I'm just a WebCT Administrator experimenting and wishing....
"Yes, you need a newer Version from the CVS. There you can allow HTML in general which activates the Editor.
Do you know how to do that or can I help ?" Michael Schneider
I would really appreciate some direction as to how to DL the CVS files for the Wiki mod.
- If I want to try it out do I have to initially install from the ZIP file in the "Module and AddOn page" or can I DL it directly from CVS?
- Once I have the Wicki installed can I then update it whenever I update the entire site?
- Is it possible once the Wicki is installed to update the Wicki module separately from the other modules?
- No, you do not need to have the zip initially installed. You can just copy the code from the contrib/wiki to mod/wiki and /contrib/wiki/lang to /lang and it should work.
- Yes, but the release-cycles are not in sync yet. Moodle does not yet include the wiki module and because we are still in heavy development, there may be more releases for the wiki than moodle-releases
- Yes. The only problem is, that when the database changes you may need to remove/reinstall it in the admin-section. But I think the database is now more or less stable.
I hope I could help...
I still don't have time to take a look at moodle-wiki :\, but what about diffs ?
as much as I know,
* HtmlArea produces one-line html code (or similar - hardly readable by human )
* and diffs in wiki are counted on per-line basis
* HtmlTidy arranges html nicely, so diffs would be human understanable.
ps.: HtmlTidy extention will be by default in PHP5
I believe in PowerOfWiki :D
