Wiki

Postby DJ99X » Sat Apr 11, 2020 11:01 pm

I've been getting the urge to start collating some of the info released with snapshots over the years that is scattered all over the place. I'd imagine anyone new looking to develop are going to miss alot of useful functionality that's been implemented over the years. Heck, even I can't recall most things, and it's a pain to go looking for it.
As opposed to doing it in stickied threads, I think it'd be nicer in a wiki, as you can lay everything out better and have more useful search functionality.
I started tinkering with one on fandom, but I figured before I go too far with that, it might be worth asking whether it'd be much of a bother to just append one to this site? MediaWiki is free, I just wasn't sure around other costs around actually hosting it on your site.

I'd like to contribute to a wiki.

Would it be purely facs based or quides too + faq?

I've never run a wiki before but I assume I could just host it on the same server that hosts the forum.
...
Okay, I looked it up and it's a bit of a pain in that they require a specific version of PHP (at least 7.2.9 but not 7.4.0). I'm running Centos 7 which is PHP 5.4. I might be able to get away with using version 1.26 of MediaWiki. I'll take a shot at it but not for a week or so.

Possible to add it as a sub section on the tmfr site?

If it's supposed to be official, it needs to be on jlv's site more or less.

Well, it doesn't need to be official as such, figured if it were easy to implement, it'd be neater implementing it as apart of this site.

No drama, I'll continue adding stuff to the one I setup, won't be too hard to copy across if you manage to get it working.
