Improving the Wiki
« on: December 20, 2015, 04:01:02 am »
I would like to edit the wiki pages.  The wiki main page tells me to log in with my forum username and password.  However, when I try to log in with my forum username I get a message saying that the username is not in use.  I do not see a way to register independently there.

I would like to improve the Wiki pages as they are not in all that great shape.

Thank you,
Bill.

That's strange, it was an issue but should be fixed long times ago, I will write an email to our administrator to report this bug.
Thanks for the report. :)

EDIT: I don't have such issue, I can login to the wiki correctly.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

Thank you for looking into it for me.

Improving the wiki is definitely something I can be competent at.  :)

Since we upgraded to a recent wiki version, the plugin that allowed us to login with our forum-credentials is no longer supported...
So, at least for now, you have to create a new wiki user.
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

Ok, thanks.  But - unless I'm completely blind (it has been known to happen), I just don't see anywhere to register on the Wiki?

That was removed, because it has lead to tons of spam in extremely short time:
I cleaned up the wiki and locked creation of new users to avoid this kind of spam in the near future...
Admins can create new users though. [...] :)
I can create an accout with a atemproary password, that will be send to your forums mail-address, for you,
Just confirm that the address is correct or PM me another address (and probably username).

Right on, yes please.  I just checked to make sure my forum email is correct and it is.  So if you could email me a temporary password there then that would be awesome.  For the Wiki username it would probably be best if it was the same as the forum: "headkase".  Thanks again!  :)

A mail should be on the way.
If it does not arrive (even not in the spam-folder), the mailer is broken and I have to do it manually.
So please give feedback.

The mailer was really broken, btw., but Yiannis fixed it yesterday.

Well, I gave this page: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Windows a good "once over."  I intend to move onto this page: http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/MinGW_installation next.

Comments and criticism are welcome.

Great, I think I have edited that page several years ago, and now, you edit make the wiki better.
