Spam attack to the wiki!!!
« on: January 05, 2006, 11:45:16 pm »
I discovered two changes in the wiki of codeblocks, where a linklist containing only suspect links had been added to the bottom of the wiki pages. The linklist wasn't visible because the height of the whole list had been set to 1 px. I found this by pure chance (I took a look at the last changes and their diffs).

Here are the changes I made:
Diff of the Main Page
Diff of the Help talk:Contents

Perhaps everyone who edits a wiki page could take a look at the bottom of it, where I found the linklist too, and, if there something similar, delete it.

Yiannis, is there a way to make the wiki users-only or something?

Oh, I forgot to change this when I updated the wiki software.
Fixed now.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...
