[Mod] Wiki Mod [wiki]

Another random mod by me.

This mod provides a "Wiki" block. You can create and edit pages with it.

The pages are saved as <worldpath>/wiki/<pagename>. All spaces in the page name are converted to underscores, and all other characters not in [A-Za-z0-9-] are converted to hex notation %XX.

The text can contain hyperlinks in the form of [link text] to other pages. Such links are added at the right of the form. The layout supports up to 30 links.

You can craft a "Wiki block" by putting 9 bookshelves in the crafting grid.

Only players with the "wiki" priv can create/edit pages.

Remember to rename the directory to just 'wiki' after installing!

Awesome! This could be useful on servers instead of having 2,000,000 signs around the spawn.

Are the wiki blocks lockable and only modifiable by admins?

EDIT: Just saw. YAY!

Sounds like a very intresting idea. On almost all servers, it would be helpful to have a very simple ingame message board where players could announce their new buildings, ask for protection, make trade offers etc. A wiki is usually slightly diffrent. I wonder if it could be used for this purpose?

I'm currently expanding it to be suitable to that purpose. Expect MTBB soon :P

Very cool, this could also be used for an adventure/rpg map for a story.

Update!
- Separate into several files.
- Add support for "user space" pages (only writable by owner), plus a single "private" page.
- Extend a bit in-mod docs.

I like this mod. If you wanted to, you could make it so that it resembles a special kind of bookcase (or give your computers a similar purpose.)

This has huge potential. I'm looking forward to seeing all the ways it'll be used.

I am hoping the players can edit any page of the wiki, like they can do on the internet.

I am thinking that there can be public pages that anyone can edit, and private pages that can only be edited by their creators.

There are five kinds of pages:

Public pages can be read and edited by anyone. They are accessed by writing an unadorned name in the address bar. For example "Main".

User public pages can be read by anyone, but only edited by the owner. Each user can only have 9 publlic pages, numbered 1-9. These are accessed either as ":<n>" for your personal pages, or as ":<user>:<n>" for a specific user. For example, ":4" or ":john:9".

User private page can only be read/edited by the owner. Each user has a single private page which is accessed as ":0".

Some special page names are used internally for messages and the help system. These begin with '.' are always read-only. For example, type ".Help Index" (w/o quotes) in the name field and click "Go".

Plugins can register their own pages. For example, go to "/ml/Recent" to see the Mailing List plugin.

*BUMP*

Added some clarifications and a few more links to the help pages, and restructured code a bit.

Are you still planning to have this mod and the computers mod work with each other? Maybe even combine them into one mod?

Ah, so it was Irrlicht causing a crash. $##@ Irrlicht! I wound up borrowing code from the early computers, and combined it with the Wiki for a cool look.

How do I get the baby tower back in the mod? I don't want to use an old version.

Here's my take on Kaeza's wiki code. Simply dropped in textures and replaced... well, inserted the nodebox. http://www.filedropper.com/wiki
