NWiki for 1.9 Beta Extreme for diehard beta testers
 
Finally The NWiki for 1.9 Beta is here. This one is a Extreme Beta version for those moodle diehards and nwiki daredevils that we (dfwikiteam) totally love.

This version comes with the latest roars of the dfwikilabs jungle:
* stuff taken out : timelines and grades and other things that do not belong in wiki. (Grades will be back, but we are redesigning all the engine to make it useful and usable)
* section editing, and lock engine rebuild
* NWiki for 1.8 tested migration engine
* code cleaning
* nwiki markup compatible with both mediawiki and creole

And the usual stuff. Don't forget to enable blocks on activities moodlewide and enjoy the nwiki blocks. Remember that since 1.8 the NWiki COURSE FORMAT is stable and COOLestupendo, if you want to wiki in your course THIS IS THE WAY TO GO. My students refer to my moodle installation as "The wiki" ... (Martin I call it moodle is not on purpose guiño)

So please, my beloved diehards... this 1.9 version needs your comments cause this is the one that will be squeezed in 2.0
K'plah!
Ludo

Ludo,

Sound great. I'm planning on testing this soon, but I have to ask for your help; a simple (?) question.

Does Moodle enable students to create and join groups for a wiki. We want to let the users get together, find out about each other, and sign up to use seperate wikis. Can we create the wikis (with a user limit) and then allow them to be "filled" as users sign up?

thanks so much,
J. Catuccio

Hi Ludo,

Thanks for all your work on this. I'll be testing it over the next couple of weeks. Is it possible to put the style changes into a styles.php file inside the module folder? I'm finding that CVS updates will not include styles.php in the standard folder any more.

Matt

I've also noticed that the instructions I have entered on the setup page are not displayed anywhere. I only have the student's work to look at with no introduction above it.

Thanks for the great work.

Mostly the bets is working pretty well in 1.9 for me but I cannot import/export with xml at all. All I get is a blank page. The same for the PDF function.

The html export function is working though.

I installed nwiki on 1.9.1 and have had migration problems with existing wikis.

When I tried to save edit pages I got an error (Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /var/www/html/bhsonline/moo/mod/wiki/lib/moodle/persistence_manager.php on line 336)

So I exported the wiki to xml. This worked. But then I deleted the page and tried to import the xml thinking it would fix any messed up pointers. But when I try to import I get the message:
Sorry, but you do not currently have permissions to do that (Perform admin actions)

thanks for your help,
Paul Cohen

More congratulations.

I have upgraded directly from 1.7.2 to 1.9.1 plus Nwiki and almost all working fine.

Two things remain pending:
  • PDF or XML export of the pages edited with HTML wink
  • The same error reported by Paul when editing a very huge table (100 rows and 3 columns but the html code seem not very clean: each row is a table). When I try to save I get:
    • Fatal error: Call to a member function page_name() on a non-object in/www/html/mood/restringidos/moodle/mod/wiki/lib/moodle/persistence_manager.php on line 336
    • But the other pages of that wiki work fine

... And.... some bugs
The section editing works only if you chose Nwiki Editor wink
In this case, if you edit one sectin and then you edit the page (Edit tab) you get this error:
"There have been changes in the current page while editing it, probably because another user has overrided your lock and may have changed its content. To not lose data, you can return to the previous screen using your browser's back button and copy the text of any changes you have made, and then try editing again."


PDF Export doesnt' work with pages using Nwiki editor.

I post this in the tracker:

Hi Juan,

I'm the guy who implemented section editing in NWiki.

About MDL-15307:

- It's known that section editing only works with nwiki editor. This is a a decicion taken by the dfwikiteam because there was no time to implement this feature in the rest of parsers.

What i dont understand is this:

"In this case, if you edit one sectin and then you edit the page (Edit tab) you get this error:"

I can't reproduce it, can you post the exact steps you do to get this error?

Anyway i think there is gonna be a new release soon and some bugs related to section and page locking have been solved already.

Thanks.

That section editing bug is fixed for the next NWiki release for Moodle 1.9 and 1.8.

Bye
