wiki updates - query about backup files for local setup
« on: January 19, 2022, 04:18:44 am »
Let me know if I am going off on a tangent on this one and wasting my time.
I have been able to download the mediawiki Virtual Machine OVA file from the page below and get it running locally as a VirtualBox guest. This will allow me to learn about the wiki page layout and make changes to locally before requesting changes to the C::B wiki to ensure that the changes work and look okay.  The pages and areas that need updates that I have worked on are:   * Update the Windows build process. Some pages reference wxWidget 3.0 and others 2.8 and https://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Windows references 3.1.4.
   * Create a Unix project/workspace build process, unless there is one that I have not found.
   * Update the Unix makefile process. The https://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Linux has not been touched in a while and is in need of a major rework IMHO.   * Create a page for building the Debian deb packages, unless It is added to the https://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/Installing_Code::Blocks_from_source_on_Linux page

VM OVA download page:
     https://bitnami.com/stack/mediawiki/virtual-machine

But to make the changes without affecting anyone until I submit the changes for approval to be incorporated into the wiki  it looks like I need a backup of the wiki to install it locally. Is there a backup of the wiki available anywhere or can I get a backup of the wiki from someone? If there is another way of doing this that someone has used or knows about that works please let me know. If I am going about this wrong please let me know.

I think every forum user should/could edit the wiki.

I will send an email to our admin for help.

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.

I disagree in that you need to have shown that you are not going to cause havoc and are trying to help with C::B before being "granted" access.
If everyone got access then the bots and people show they have no idea or are not real devs (uni students etc) could cause major issues with regards to reverting their changes if they are bad changes (aka graffiti).

@bluehazzard I just stumbled onto your https://github.com/bluehazzard/codeblocks_sf/wiki page and I will borrow info for the updates on the CB wiki as the pages have allot more info that I was going to put in. Great job. Pitty I did not know about it a year ago as it would have saved me allot of time and head ache, but at least I know about the pages now.

Well, it seems to be out of date already...
