this morning we have shipped in our download site two new releases of NWiki: for Moodle 1.8 and Moodle 1.9.
Pigui has now a much complex batery test for the migration engine and we have fixed several parser issues.
The 1.9 version has less features (like timelines that now are distributed separately as a plug in) the grades engine has completelly been redesigned to a much simpler interface and is integrated with Moodle 1.9 gradebook and we have recoded 100% the PDF export using something we call wikibook that is a markup to create sequences within a wiki.
These last two things require detailed documentation and I'll commit some time to create it.
Thanks for your support in the voting.
ps. DO NOT USE FIREFOX FOR THE MIGRATION. Last versions of Firefox are awfully slow with the html rendering and the migration generates a BIG HTML screen... I suggest Opera or Safari, is 10 times faster.
Is the bugfix you announced (see http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=88054) last tuesday for the 1.8 version included?
it is fixed. Ewiki migration will not crash this time (in this line)
I'm testing your latest 1.9 release against a Moodle 1.9 beta 4 install, upgrading from existing ewiki activities.
After deleting /mod/wiki and then moving all your files over, I hit my admin page and start the upgrade process. Several database tables get upgraded, and then I get the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: list_directories_and_files() in /MYMOODLE/mod/wiki/wikimigrate/ewiki_migrate.php on line 721
Thanks for any help you can give me on this.
This is very good news. This function is called nearly at the end of migration, so all other stuff didn't crash.
I'll add the require to the backup/lib.php to fix this bug and tomorrow I'll build a new release fixing this bug.
Thanks for the report.
The latest nWiki download has a problem with Moodle 1.9 Beta 4 when you turn ON the filter for Wiki. If it is off everything is fine, when turned on the right hand column and most of the middle column disappear.
If you turn Wiki filtering OFF Moodle returns to normal.
The wiki filter is a feature that we have not developed yet !! So I guess that we need to write it. If we succeed in the beauty contest
Interesting comment, when I last installed NWiki on 1.8.4. All the right column, all the middle column and all except one block from the right disappeared.
I'm never going to attempt to install this again.
Not to worry, simply turn off Wiki auto-linking and Moodle will work just fine. This is something they need to work on.
I have many working Moodles up and running - my real account and a bunch of testing accounts. I use the testing accounts to experiment with new modules before incorporating them into my real Moodle.
I have a directory, on my PC, where I incorporate all the add ons to the core Moodle and when I install the latest Beta I simply drag and drop this directory and it merges all the add-ons at once.
I wish all of Moodle had no bugs - but I've not spent a penny so far on ANY Moodle module and realize I must use workarounds. When I actually get my Moodle up and running and have happy students we will then donate and try to repay all the folks who have given us so much for so little.
Hopefully, that day will come shortly for me.
I am having some issues with the Moodle 1.9 nwiki html editor. As follows:
- ''Moodle Site'' appears as \'\'Moodle Site\'\'
- '''Moodle Site''' appears as \'\'\'Moodle Site\'\'\'
- [http://www.moodle.org Moodle] appears as [http://www.moodle.org Moodle]
Barring that, how do I fix the above problem?
I had to move my Moodle 1.8.4 with nWiki from MY-SQL to MS-SQL 9.0 and there is a problem with a field in the table mdl_wiki.
There is a field named "restore" and RESTORE look like is a reserved keyword in MS-SQL. Everything was jam in the installation process of the tables.
I had to rename the field with something else like "nrestore" in install.xml to complete the installation of nWiki.
But it was the only big problem and now it's working well, except it is now not compatible with the old stuff.
