[1] Wiki Words don't work inside a table

When I put a Pascal case word inside a table, it doesn't hyperlink anywhere. I've tried it with double brackets also, and even with http:// and nothing works within the table. Can you help? Thanks.

Update: I found my own answer. There needs to be space between the opening || and the text. See the following:

WikiAspThat didn't create a hyperlink
Wiki AspThat worked!

[2] Help! Somebody messed up my page (i.e. vandalism). How can I prevent it?

~ElreyRonald 02/25/2005

[3] How about if massive vandalism is done in my site?

~ElreyRonald 02/25/2005

I have just designed an automated Backup-admin ASP-script, using FileSystemObject. Check it out and give comment.

[4] Problem: What if my website has a different location for db, say outside the root folder. How do I make Wiki Asp work?


Answer: All you have to do is to change the program variables in line 53 and 54. See the highlighted portion in the Snapshot 1 below. In this configuration, the site has its MSACESS db files located at database folder and the physical location of the root is D:/CLIENTS/C241/JOHEDOE.COM


Snapshot 1. Change some program variable to suit your site


[5] Alternate way of Creating Pages (even non Wiki Word ones)====Suggestion to add link for new pages

Is there any way to add a link to the bottom of the Wiki code to allow new pages to be created?

Here is a method to create a page called "new age two":

http://www28.brinkster.com/lambda326/wiki.asp?db=WikiAsp&a=edit&o=new+age+two

The method above is another way to create a page, even if it NOT a Wiki Word. Thanks for the tip. - ElreyRonald

[6] Non-Existent Pages

In the latest version of wiki.asp (engineVersion = "v1.525b Elrey Ronald V.") on a non existing page the whole word is linked and not only the last character as before. Is this changed on purpose? The color of the link is different and can be changed in the wiki.css at .NoWikiYet /Sven 2004-12-06

Yes, you are absolutely correct and the CSS class NoWikiYet is used to control it. Developers will find this as being more useful format-wise rather than just linking the last character only

A SIDE NOTE about this comment: I have to use the Six Single Quote hack to prevent the word (NoWikiYet) from being displayed as Wiki word links here. ElreyRonald 12/06/2004

[7] Version List


Do you have a release or version list somewhere. I get confused about the versions and what they do. 1.523, 1.525a, 1.525b /Sven
Sorry for the confusion. Right now I don't really keep track of it aside from VSS - Elrey Ronald.

[8] National Characters

I can not use national (swedish) characters 夶ń in WikiWords like Sm?sBord or Sandstr? I have checked that Bjarnes code is present and the characters can be used in running text. Any idea how to make them work also in WikiWords /Sven, 2004-11-24

Please download the corrected program (ZIP file) now! Somehow these special characters were deleted when I uploaded the program. Basically, If you need to use your national characters you should modify the program and stuff these in the patterns just like below. The function to look for is Walkwiki
SPECIAL NOTE: It seems to me that this may only work depending on the host server you are using. Bjarne's web host seems working as well has the DOMAINDLX.COM host. This site, for some reasons that I do not know, fails to properly handle special characters. I suggest trying it out at DOMAINDLX.COM ~ Elrey Ronald 11/24/2004

I run the correct program on a Windows IIS webserver and links don't work. Earlier I saw somewhere that not only the table with national characters was added in the code but also a section with something like below. I added below to my code and now it works. Maybe you should add it to the explanations on other pages also. It is in the current downloadable code. /Sven 2004-12-06

     gRE.Pattern = "([A-Z][a-z]+)([A-Z][a-z]+)+"



[9] Removing a page

Is there a way to remove a page? For example, if I've created a page but later want to get rid of it because I've changed my wikiword for the topic.
RJ Bruce, rbruce@fulbright.com
Thanks for the wonderful wiki!

The page Features And Changes. On item number 9, it describes how this is done.


[10] The .css file provided in the downloadable ZIP file had a couple of minor errors in it. Using the freely downloadable TopStyle Lite 3.10 I was able to easily see these errors and fix them.

  1. The body elements bgcolor item is invalid.
  2. 3 lines are missing the ending semi-colon.
  3. The h1 background-color has an extra semi-colon in the middle of it.
  4. The font definition of the standards Button has an extra semi-colon.
  5. (Personal preference) I like all text to be lower case.
Here is a link to the fixed css file. wiki.css

Thanks for pointing these out! - Elrey Ronald 10/19/2004

[11] I am using an RSS reader/aggregator and it is able to get the feeds correctly but My RSS links are not working.

Your RSS links will work after you enter your site's domain in the program.
  1. Open the wiki.asp program, go to line 34 (approximately)
  2. Replace "http://yoursitehere" with the correct domain. For example "http://w.domaindlx.com/mysite"

[12] Tables are nice but I can not span columns, etc., why?

There are endless ways to enhance the table feature like centering, justify-right or left, cell coloring instead of row coloring, header , etc. but for now I will leave these for others to tinker on the code for their own use and if they think they wrote it as good addition,pls. let me know. I will gladly incorporate it in Wiki Asp and credits will be given.

I've always think a good wiki should be simple and usable. A good measure to see if you are not over-marking up (too much formatting, that is), is when you can still reasonaly read the content when you are in EDIT mode. Also, Let's avoid code bloating.
--ElreyRonald 10/13/2004

[13] Orphan Checking?

Is there an "orphan checking" mechanism? -- Chuck Seward [2004.10.07 11:04]

None at the moment. But that would be a nice feature to add -- Elrey Ronald

[14] How do I create an image link?

With a little imagination you can do this. See this example

 [ image:http://weblogs.asp.net/images/xml.gif |http://www28.brinkster.com/lambda326/wiki.asp?db=WikiAsp&a=rss] 

will look like this click-able image...


[15] I always get the "File is being edited by another user" Error message while saving.

This error message indicates that someone has edited the current page while you are working on it. Clicking on the link will get the fresh page. If you still can not save the page, it may mean that the browser has cached the input. To correct this, you must HIT REFRESH in the browser while you are on the EDIT page. Also be sure that your WIKI.ASP version has the following code (located on the first lines to prevent cache). - Elrey Ronald
 Response.CacheControl = "no-cache"
 Response.AddHeader "Pragma", "no-cache"
 Response.Expires = -1

[16] Is there a code espaping tag to display html code in pages ? I saw a "" on other wikis...

Wiki engines traditionally do not process HTML tags. If you are using too much formatting or even html, it makes editing complex and readability is compromised. Quickness ('wiki' in short) and simplicity is what makes a wiki great. Otherwise, use a full editor or blogging program instead. - see Wiki Sand Box ~ Elrey Ronald


[17] I would love to see a feature whereby you could rollback to an older version of a page in the event that someone were to inadvertently delete content or willfully mess your content up for example. - Thanks - Mark

Hmm.... ignore that - you have already implemented it you brilliant people!! :-) Thank you ever so much.

The history would discourage vandalism also - Elrey Ronald

[18] I tried to run Wiki Asp on our Intranet. Unfortunately, 3 out of 4 times I get an error:

  Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005', Unspecified  
 error, /WikiASP/Wiki.asp, line 836.

This error seems to occur at random either at the start or while using the Wiki. Any suggestions?


This error will show up from time to time in a shared web hosting environment for any website that is using a Microsoft Access database. This error does not mean that the webserver has really ran out of system resources. This is a generic error when using Access databases. Take a look at this M.S. Knowledgebase~ Elrey Ronald


BTW, A new site is using Wiki Asp!!! Thanks. http://www.datacentres.org.uk/datacentres/wiki.asp - Elrey Ronald

[19] Thank you, and Thank you for the plug! It's a pleasure to use this most excellent code as it works just great!! Cheers - Mark @ datacentres.org.uk



[20] Strangely, the source to this Wiki does not appear to be available anywhere which is a shame.

If you patiently looked further, you might have found it in my Elrey Ronald page. Can you sign your remarks and put it on Comments And Suggestions page? ~ Elrey Ronald

Elrey,

[21] I tried to use this Wiki on an intranet server, but it did not function, I got this error message:

  Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A139A), Unexpected  quantifier, /USR/wiki/wiki.asp, line 256
The lines 255 and 256 are:
  gRE.Pattern = pattern & "([^\n]{0,}?)" & pattern    ' kgreiner
  workingText= gRE.Replace(workingText, "<" & tag & ">$1")

When I 'Response.Wrote' workingText, part of the string was $1, as if line 255 did not work correctly. Do you have any idea what could be wrong on the server? ~BjarneD 20040123

This is Visual Basic Error. Be sure to have the right VB Runtime components in the server. That line is depending on VBScript.Regexp object to do its work. I would suggest upgrading VB runtime, although I've never done this. -ElreyRonald 1-25-2004



[22] I find Wiki Asp the easiest to use, easiest to install, and very flexible ASP version today. I got int Google search and typed Wiki Asp and found the links to go to and get this-wonderful software!! Free!!+wonderful software!! And it is free.''---AxKit Wiki


Thanks - Elrey Ronald
