New Wiki
« on: May 06, 2017, 10:47:24 PM »
Little project I've been working on for quite some time, and finally have ready to make public: The New OpenBOR Wiki!

There are only a few articles thus far, and certainly not everything an author needs to get going, but it will all come in time.

To hold us over while articles are created, I have moved the original list style manual into our Wiki here.

I thought you won't add the list style manual to the wiki.
Any plans to check some info from the manual? For example, the getentitypropriety has some errors as you told me.

Plus, how we start to add examples like we had in your previous wiki? If you could remove the 301 redirection from the old wiki (we can't access it thought Way Back Machine), we could start to import things from there.

Oh I hate that list with a passion, but until the real wiki gains traction, it's still useful enough to keep around - and on a host we control.

It's a wiki, just jump in and add stuff like you would any other. The beauty of it is we can correct things incrementally if they are out of date, mistaken, or whatever.

As for the old one, there is simply no way to get information out of it a timely manor - the database stores articles in binary, and the wiki version it ran on is too old to upgrade. That was one of the main problems with MediaWiki back in the day - if it went out of date you were kind of screwed. Thankfully they have since corrected that design flaw.

It's not impossible - I certainly could get stuff out of it, but it would be a full time task that I just can't devote myself to right now. Sorry. :(

You can just type in the name of the module, and then start to edit it. You can use my Sonic Revolution page as a guideline.

ok so i looked up how to add a page online and saw that if i type the name of a page i want to make in the search bar on top right hand side of page and then search- it will not come up with a result but will then enable you to select an option to create the relevant page.

I have created my page but how do i move it to the modules page ?

UPDATE: Miru helped me. Just need to add following to the end of your page

[[Category:OpenBOR Modules]]

Hint for those who are adding modules: add a compatibility list.

  • openBOR version: X to Y
  • OS/Consoles:
    • Windows
    • Linux
    • DreamCast
    • PSP
    • Wii
    • whatchamacallit
    • ...
