Re: GroupWiki – Demo Site (Please provide feedback.Release imminent!)
1. Glad that is working okay. It’s something that I only implemented on Friday so it may need some tweaking
2. At the moment there is no facility to delete revisions. Something to look at in future I guess. For now, we want pretty much everything saved as it’s all student work. If we were to put something in there I’d imagine it would be an admin function to clear individual revisions/all revisions older than x amount of time or ‘all’ revisions.
3. That sounds great Our project finishes in a week or so, so we can chat about this after that.
4. (The alert) – I’m not sure what you mean here. Please can you explain further?
2 + 3. I definitely see your point here. We have tried to make it as accessible as possible to people that are non-technical. I’m sure there are things that can be improved upon on that front though. One thing that might be quite nice (suggested by one of the other developers, Ryo) is to make it so that by default the wiki pages are created with some kind of basic instructions – perhaps an instructional video. Not something we’ll be doing now but having a backend admin function that lets you control that might be good.
Thanks for the link. We originally looked at using mediawiki for this project but it turned out to be a big of a nightmare to integrate the systems nicely. See this post for a few more details: https://buddypress.org/forums/topic/group-wiki-plugin-not-a-release-but-in-progress
