Feature request

I added a feature request for this already to tracker just making post so others can add their thoughts in forums as well.

I had users complain to me they would like to see Wiki+ in ocPortal appear more like most other wiki`s. As they put it "now it sort of looks like forum posts so if it is gonna look like that why don`t we just use forums?". I can probably improve it somewhat just editing templates to make it look more like other Wiki's but imagine some of it more require more than just a template change so I figured I'd open a feature request for it.

Have you tried editing the category to put it into "Hide posts"? That makes it more wiki-like, as the main description area becomes the primary content area, and the posts are then just like the discussion area.

Additionally, using wikicode styling linking, [[like this]] instead of child relationships, makes it more wiki-list.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I honestly have not played with it much but I'll try some of those suggestions and see what they think. I figure most of it is just about layout and tweaks like you suggested so as soon as I have time I was gonna play around with it a little and make it appear more wiki-ish.
