  • Bring back the old wiki!

    Is Vaultwiki going to be the wiki of the future for mp3car, so we won't be able to use the old style wiki? Personally I much prefer the old wiki to vaultwiki. It's much easier to search, nicer looking, and standardized. Anyone who knows how to edit wiki knows how to edit it. So is that going away eventually in lieu of vaultwiki?

    The old wiki is no longer supporter by the original developers. We could not make really simple changes, so we switched a few months ago to a new plugin. Sharon is just working right now to port over the info.

    This wiki seems straightforward enough. What are your specific issues with it.

      It has more of a forum feel than a wiki feel to it, and it doesn't look like wiki markup works either.

        It really is a terrible way to catalog information. Why not switch to a standard engine like mediawiki or others? It seems that it would be better long-term than a vBulletin plugin.

        The RideRunner crew are trying to use it to document program settings and skinning info, and it's next to impossible to find what you're looking for without already knowing what it is you need. I do consider myself a pretty proficient forum user, and I find it next to impossible to search it for generic terms like "riderunner execute command parameters".

        EDIT: The old wiki IS mediawiki... it's no longer supported?!

              sql data porting is relatively easy if you know the db layout for both systems but time consuming.

              You can do it through a script or by hand.

              Why not pull in a few savvy users from the forum and have them help?
              You'd save money and could move staff to more critical issues.
              If the call for help comes up empty you could sweeten the deal with a few products
              Once again the cost per product is cheaper than probably several hours of personnel time

                Update:
                I've got mediawiki downloaded. I'm waiting on my server guys to get me a new DB created to use for it. Hopefully by later Monday I'll have something ready. Ill keep everyone updated.

                      http://www.mp3car.com/carwiki/index.php/Main_Page

                      Join, write, have a ball!

                      I will be moving this whole thing to wiki.mp3car.com as soon as i get some hosting things ironed out. But that won't change anything from putting data on there.

                      Good Idea about the sql port, I can't give out access, but it shouldn't take long to write that script. I will defintly post if I have any questions though. (I hate writing the word definitely.)

                          what happened to this? I had organized a couple of nice wiki pages that have disappeared. I found a couple that were converted over but the formatting is horrible and all pictures gone.

                            which articles are missing photos. Ill try to recover them.
                            I had to put all the wiki's together because we had 4 different sources of information all barely being kept up at different times. It was making our forum a difficult place to find information. But my goal is always to make this one source be king, so ill do my best to recover missing information.

                              Well it started on this page and then, well there were a bunch of how-to's. I didn't write them all, but they were good resources for others.

                              http://www.mp3car.com/wiki/index.php...g_via_Software

                              There are bits and pieces of it that were transferred, but without the pictures they are kind of confusing.

                              http://www.mp3car.com/showwiki.php?t...ble+Sound+Card
                              http://www.mp3car.com/showwiki.php?t...+Tuning+Method

                              If I use the wayback machine I can sort of find the info, but it's also missing the pictures that went with the how-tos.

                              So mediawiki was a no go? THe old wiki was easy to click through and organize, the current wiki seems like nothing more than more forum posts.
