Talk

  • pontiac 07:46, 12 Mar 2005 (PST) another thing that isn't really a big issue:
    • When i turn off the diplay of images (firefox here) i do no tget the article/discussion/edit+ watch/etc... links on the top of the page. But they are texts, so the should show up, no?
    • I think this is since the wiki has been integrated/embedded into the vegastrike design, but i'm not sure.
    • With turned off images i also get wrong links in the main menu on the left (because the 'nonexisting image' overlaps the other links)

Wiki logo discussion

  • pontiac 07:46, 12 Mar 2005 (PST) Just two small suggestions for the Wiki main page (if possible):

Pontiac 04:49, 12 May 2005 (PDT) Here are the changes i did to the wiki files:

###############################################################################
# edit	./LocalSettings.php

$wgLogo	=	"{$wgUploadPath}/wiki.png";

$wgNavigationLinks = array (
        array( 'text'=>'mainpage',      'href'=>'mainpage2' ),
        array( 'text'=>'recentchanges', 'href'=>'recentchanges-url' ),
        array( 'text'=>'randompage',    'href'=>'randompage-url' ),
        array( 'text'=>'help',          'href'=>'helppage' ),
        array( 'text'=>'sitesupport',   'href'=>'sitesupport-url' ),
);

###############################################################################
# edit	./languages/Language.php

'mainpage'              => 'Main Page',
'mainpage2'              => 'Vegastrike',

###############################################################################
# edit	./skins/monobook/main.css

/*#column-one { padding-top: 160px; }*/
/*edited by ponitac 2005 05 12*/
#column-one { padding-top: 10px; }

/* edited by by pontiac 2005 05 12 */
/*
#p-logo {
    z-index: 10;
    position:absolute;
    top: 0px;
    left: 0px;
    height: 0px;
    width: 0em;
    overflow: visible;
}

#p-logo h5 { display: none; }
#p-logo a,
#p-logo a:hover {
    display: block;
    height: 1px;
    width: 1em;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: 35% 50% !important;
    text-decoration: none;
}
*/

Login discussion

  • Pontiac, what was resolved about logins to edit the wiki? I know its connected to the forum logins, but we can still edit the wiki without logging in (and we show up as an IP address). Can we bloke non-logged in editing somehow? It makes it difficult to tell who's done what if someone forgets to login. Silverain 15:57, 12 Apr 2005 (PDT)
    • jackS 23:18, 12 Apr 2005 (PDT) Agreed. if we can do anything to force logins, that would be a very good thing.
    • Pontiac 11:50, 17 Apr 2005 (PDT) Actually i don't know what's the current setting for wiki login since i'm not really involved with the configuration. I'm normally not for a restricted access to wikis. But as you two already mentioned, the 'keeping track of things' is not really possible with IPs everywhere, so i triple this idea... especially since there is still the possibility for everyone to edit the wiki.
    • Odd, I had thought you had set up the configuration... so should mention it to ace123 instead? Calling ace123... Silverain 15:45, 17 Apr 2005 (PDT)
      • OK, I badgered and annoyed ace123 and you may have noticed that if you try to edit without being logged on, it comes up with a reminder and takes you to the login screen - Big thanks ace123. Silverain 22:48, 17 Apr 2005 (PDT)
  • With SourceForge's move to MySQL 4, we decided to upgrade the Media Wiki to 1.5.0, which was released not long ago. The login system should work hopefully.. Ace123 17:25, 14 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Vegastrike (name) discussion

  • pontiac 10:39, 15 Mar 2005 (PST) Another thing that needs to be discussed and straightend out is the title of the game itself.
    • Should it be:
      • "Vegastrike" (Sourceforge/Mission)
      • "VegaStrike" (Logo?)
      • "Vega Strike" (Logo)
      • Silverain 15:26, 22 Mar 2005 (PST) I have been using Vega Strike taken from the current logo, forum title etc. Maybe we should poll this in the forums?
        • Pontiac 10:54, 8 May 2005 (PDT) That's a good idea, but at first a statement from the devs would be good to see how it was intended in the beginning.



After discussing this issue the conclusion should be added to the Manual of Style

Navigation-Mainpage target

Hi, the "Main Page" of the navigation (left hand of the wiki) directes to Main Page which is a simple redirect to Vegastrike. Is it possible to change the link to Vega Strike directly? Any redirect at the navigation looks strange. The Community portal looks quite empty. Is Help intended to be some general help about the wiki or about the game? It is also empty.

Skin usage

Hi, I've some problems reading the links within the articles, because they are dark blue and the background is black. What skins are you using? I tried all existing skins, but monobook is the only one where the normal font is not black. I'm using the Mozilla browser. Greetings: makarius 02:42, 10 October 2007 (PDT)

  • It was just the main page which sets the background but not the font color... Should be fixed now. Patrick 17:25, 14 October 2007 (PDT)
