Anyone can help me... regards gus

Hi Gus.. we have this on zwiki.org too, I don't know why yet. To debug it I will remove the dtml-try..except from that form so as to get a traceback. Often it means some page has got international characters and is causing a problem for ZCatalog or for the index. It depends somewhat on your catalog/index configuration and whether you have installed things like TextIndexNG?.

PS so you could try going to the ZMI for your wiki's catalog -> Advanced -> update catalog.

That's the first decent review of wiki engines I've seen.

But Zwiki doesn't get a mention. Why is that ?

Simon where is in ZMI the wiki catalog Thanks Gus

wiki search --simon, Tue, 09 Nov 2004 11:28:42 -0800 reply
Usually, it's Catalog in your wiki folder. But if your wiki is in a CMF or Plone site, it's portal_catalog in the site's folder.

Content templating -- Tue, 09 Nov 2004 15:52:23 -0800 reply
Is there a way to make content templates in zwiki? MoinMoin has this ability. User can create a template, for example a project management page, and name it SomethingTemplate?. Then when creating a new page the user has the option of using one of the templates for their particular content. Note, I am not talking about page design templates.

Lost updates -- Wed, 10 Nov 2004 04:50:56 -0800 reply
The following is just a question out of curiosity: ZWiki doesn't prevent lost-updates, right? If A clicks edit, then B clicks edit, both change the same page, then both save the page, only one update will be recorded, and no error message will be displayed. Couldn't that be implemented quite easy with transactions (begin_transaction, read_object, write_object, end_transaction) on the ZODB? Since ZODB uses optimistic concurrency control, there would neither be the problem, that the user could abort editing the page, and the page would be locked forever. Again, this is just a question out of curiosity - I am aware, that lost updates will almost never happen. Benedikt

It seems to me that zwiki.org is very messy.

The easiness of adding comments and/or mailing in a response to a page leads to people doing exactly that, rather than correcting/improving content in the main part of pages. Thus, there is an explosion in the number (and size) of pages, but a reduction in usability.

I've decided to stop commenting on pages, and edit/refactor/delete them instead. I encourage others to do the same. If you disagree with my edits, you know how to revert them.

There's a social hurdle to get over in deleting other people's comments/content. It's not that I don't like you, or that I disagree, it's that it's said better elsewhere! :) Let the edit wars begin!

I'll respond more deeply later, if you want my philosophy on how this wikis mechanism seem a device for gathering a balanced signal/noise input.

In short, I had personally expected comments to be "rolled up" into the document while providing a convenient mechanism for feedback and holding tank for the personal thoughts not easily seperated when quickly and coinviently adding information to a implicitly group-think document.

What your proposing isn't war, but IMHO part of the wiki way. I don't consider Zwiki messy, but that can be measure by the amount of effort required to polish it up. I do consider WikiWiki messy. Wonder what WikiWiki:ThreadMode and WikiWiki:DocumentMode look like lately.

We went through a big cleaning about a year ago, and only got about half way. Wonder if any of those notes are around, and if they can be picked up on or need to be rewritten. Simon was the primary contributor, others helped out, and I merely toasted a bunch of outdated pages. Maybe I did one of my 3 times a year 6-10 page consolidations...

I agree. But it seems no one ever does the "rolling-up". I'm just saying I'm voluntering to do some "rolling-up". I'm giving notice.

Hello. I haven't had much time/energy/mental bandwidth/appetite for mail lately, excuse my temporary lack of response. Looks like some good discussion taking off here. I'll jump in when I can. These threads aren't lost.

About chaotic wiki discussion - I agree it can get spread out and overwhelming. That's the main reason I shifted towards the list, and allowed for list-only discussion. You, Bob (and I) were leading the way in list-only discussions and it seemed ok; my latest step was to retire the DevDiscussion? page, in favour of the list. But lately you've been firing up new discussion pages. Is that a misstep, or do you (& others) think these things needed to be on the wiki ?

I think if we want things on the wiki we should poke people to make a wiki page. :) I was not aware new discussion lists were being created...I just added some dtml when I found the list-of-discussions missing on AboutZWikiDiscussion?. If these are not active discussion pages, maybe we should do something different here because the list I made might be misleading...

I still think using a wiki as a mailing list archive is useful on its own. (But, I think, is a different beast than a wiki or a simple mailing list archive) I'll be doing some work on this in the future.

For instance, backlinks for a wiki page could show which mailing list posts mentioned that page...and thus the discussion that resulted in that page could be rediscovered. With each message displayable as a single page, and maybe a threaded mdoe, I think this might be more managable than the chaotic one-page-per-month giant wiki pages we were generating from mailing lists.

messes --Simon Michael, Sun, 14 Nov 2004 03:19:15 -0800 reply
I'm not talking about the listing of discussion pages which you replaced on AboutZwikiDiscussion. I'm talking about the recent discussion posts which seemed to reactivate and create still more discussion pages (zwikireleasetwodiscussion etc.). Since they're developer discussion, with a limited timeframe of relevance, I would probably send such things to the list only, these days. Ie for active discussion I'm leaning, slightly, towards "list good, discussion pages bad". I mention this as food for thought, others may not agree.

Re: zwiki discussion usability --Simon Michael, Sun, 14 Nov 2004 03:39:21 -0800 reply
I demonstrated what I was talking about there, changing the subject and so taking this thread off-wiki. I didn't mean to do that just yet though. Here it is again cc'ing GeneralDiscussion.

Simon Michael wrote:

Urgh, scroll down.. you wrote more..

Yes there are pros and cons on all sides and it's not clear to me what is the best sweet spot. I find a list/newsgroup & reader provides a linear structure which sometimes is more manageable than a chaotic wiki with discussion popping out all over the place.

Of course, they map one to the other so one can argue this is just a point of view - if you want the linear structure, just stay in your mail/news client. That was the idea.

But most of us aren't that disciplined, and forget, or don't know there's a choice, so we end up using the wiki interface for discussion and we feel the chaos.

It may help to limit choices and provide guidance, eg by recommending the list for heavy discussion, emphasizing that wiki comments are fine but perhaps more likely to be refactored/deleted.

ubuntu! --Simon Michael, Wed, 17 Nov 2004 08:47:54 -0800 reply
As an antidote to my zope-in-production adventures -

check out the ubuntu wiki. (http://ubuntulinux.org). This is the most active zwiki yet, at least that I've seen, in terms of number of editors, and the first multilingual one I've seen. It's fun to see portuguese, russian, korean etc. rolling into my ubuntu mailbox. :) As it happens I successfully upgraded to ubuntu yesterday, and found this documentation useful.

FYI there is occasional discussion of the wiki on the ubuntu-doc list/newsgroup; just now we're talking about a safer alternative to DTML for dynamic wiki content. It seems like the ability to just include an arbitrary python script might be useful.

I've noticed with Zwiki 0.36-2 (also 0.36) on Linux with Zope 2.7.2, although it may happen in other installations, that the "last changed" information of the page says "-1 year ago" after editing the page. From what I've been able to see, this value persists until the next "day". Not 24 hs, but the next date. After that the values are correct again, for example: 16 hours, etc.

But I'm noticing that as I get more stuff in there, the performance is suffering; I have about 300-odd nodes, with about 3 megabytes worth of text in there, and on a 1GHz machine, I'm noticing 3-4 second lags to render a page. Am I up against a hard limit here, or is there some performance tuning I might be able to do?

The problem is that ZWikiPage.renderLink is O(N) in the number of pages:

http://bob.mcelrath.org/times.png

This is real time vs. # of pages. It's noisy because it's real-time not CPU time. The two lines are stx and newstx. I haven't investigated the impact of a catalog yet, but I think it's near-zero because this O(N) behavior is in renderLink. My script creates pages with 10 wikilinks in them separated by spaces. (if you want my test script just ask)

So, if anyone wants to hack RIGHT NOW, look at renderLink. It shouldn't be too hard to make this an O(1) operation using a dictionary. I'll get to it eventually but right now I broke my test repo fixing a different stx bug...when I get that fixed I'll measure the effect of the catalog, and see about making renderLink O(1).

MetaData? Shown When Searching In Plone -- Fri, 26 Nov 2004 06:28:09 -0800 reply
Hi, I'm running ZWiki 0.34 and Plone 2.04 and have 3000+ wiki pages that use Structured Text. These pages usually have snipits of html in them and when do a seach in Plone I see the metadata / pseudo-html instead of the rendered html. For example, the html "Up One Level" shows up as "<a href="./" class="link-parent">Up One Level<a/>" in the search. Is the functioning as designed or am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to control how many lines of the wiki are shown when a search is done? These wiki pages were uploaded via FTP if that makes a difference.

Thanks for your help,

It should.. they're just pages. What happens ?

Note it's a little safer to pass the REQUEST to render, in case it needs your authentication info to render itself.

How can one distinguish issues/normal pages after the good old isIssue attribute is gone ?

There's still an isIssue attribute in the catalog brains returned by the pages() query, and all page objects have an isIssue() method.

It doesn't appear in the default zope.conf.. add a "cache-size N" parameter to the "zodb_db" main section. You'll see the object counts grow up to that number in ZMI. I thought it defaulted to 5000 but could be wrong.

PS setting it to 0 might turn off the limit, or try a very large number, if you want to see how large it gets. http://zopewiki.org/checkzopemem is one way to log growth.

Guessing: I think that DTML page requires on REQUEST and RESPONSE being present. Try passing them to render().
