Wiki Module Update, Mid-March 2011

Well the Wiki module is back in motion! The last I talked about the module I reached out to see if I could find someone willing to take over the project, unfortunately that didn’t pan out. So now that I’ve cleaned up a few things I needed to get done I’m back in action on the module. I spent a number of hours last night working on one of the biggest issues, the ability to use special characters in the titles of Wiki entries.

The issue wasn’t creating new pages, it was the fact that you were unable to actually edit those pages once created, due to the way the characters were loaded and saved, things went a little haywire. So last night I fixed the issue, at least in all my testing it appears to be fixed. If you want to grab the latest source code (from the SOURCE tab) on go for it, you’ll have to download the code and compile it though, I don’t currently have a package ready for testing.

Before I get a package together for a Beta I am making some additional changes. The “Menu” in the Wiki module has for the longest time been pretty fixed, un-styleable and no very useful. I don’t know if we’ll get it to be extremely useful for this next release (future release for sure) but I am working on making it easy to style on your site.

Making that change is getting me to refactor a lot of code that has been difficult to manage within the module, I’m far from done, but I think as we get through this next release things should become easier to work with and enhance in future releases. It should also become easier to follow! There’s so much going on in the module, a lot of the code is repetitive, so refactoring it should improve things greatly.

I’m hoping to have a package available for testing in the next week or two, and I would appreciate everyone testing it as they have time so I can get a release out here soon.
