LauraTrippi's research wiki, concentrating on design. This includes both layout — using CSS w/zWiki — and the process of designing process in zWiki. That's recursive, btw, not redudant. =}

The original LaurazWiki, at Simon Fraser University, has been frozen and is now LaurazWikiArchive. The new location:

RemoteWikiURL: http://www.netvironments.org/laurazWiki/

I'm gradually moving things over from LaurazWikiArchive — updating and/or archiving as I go. The new LaurazWiki also incorporates all the content from the net.narrative environments notezWiki, now frozen, too.

For more on this process, see climb, dive, or jump? (net.narrative environments 03.01.31) and then Customization Humble Pie . You might also be interested in LaurazWiki:WhatAreProtoTools .

Er, I'm not sure yet what the protocols are around here about recording conversations. But, I'm very archivally minded so I'm leaving all this here for now. |:03.07.04:|


I'm sort of stumped by the big step required to customize the template and tweak styles in the latest versions of zwiki — the move from a dtml method to the dread file system makes more of a difference than you might imagine. If you're curious to know what it's like for a non-programmer, see climb, dive, or jump? (net.narrative environments 03.01.31).

Hi Laura, on LaurazWiki you write:

I'm quite interested to know about the difficulties you're seeing, but I think there's confusion here. You can still put custom skin templates in your zwiki folder. The only recent change is that the built-in defaults for these are now zope page templates, not DTML methods (ZWiki/skin/default/*.pt). Your old DTML method templates should still be working as ever, I haven't dropped DTML support though in some ways it would simplify this area if I did.

(In case that's not clear, I'm talking about creating suitably-named Page Template or DTML Method objects in your wiki folder in the ZODB. You don't have to edit the defaults on the filesystem).

Hey, Simon, you're right (how surprising is that?)! I was confused. I had misread what you said sometime last fall or winter in GeneralDiscussion on "customizing your wiki" (and hadn't seen the customization section of the FAQ). I thought the recommended method was not to put the modified template in the ZMI, but to manage it on the file system. I've just written this all up on my page, for what it's worth. =}

Anyway, thanks! I'm delighted w/my newly customized zWiki! Worked like a charm.
