Venryx, I would assume that as this is the open-source version of Wikidot, any modules included in the source code you are free to edit.

Depending on what the licence requirements are (this is a quick post, so I do not have time to check this myself) … you may be required to re-submit any code changes that you make back to the community.

If you are willing to switch to the hosted version, you have a very powerful ListPages module at your disposal. This could be a viable alternative for you?

Re: Module source code? by leigerleiger, 24 Mar 2012 16:52

My website's in need of an enhanced version of the PageTree module, and I was wondering if it's possible to improve the source code and add new features.

Do you know how one would go about doing this? (or are the Wikidot modules unchangeable and closed-source)


Module source code? by VenryxVenryx, 23 Mar 2012 20:29

Hey ApostleO,

On you would want to use the %%updated_by%% tag, but I'm not sure if it is implemented in the open source version.

Let us know how you go.

I have done a bit of searching, but I have been unable to find any information about how (if possible) to list the most recent editor of a page. I have a list showing the most recently edited pages on my wiki, but I can only show the author, not the editor. An %%editor%% or %%edited_by%% tag would be great.

If anyone gets VM Ware working with this successfully, again, please let me know or — even better — write a tutorial. Would like to get this working but don't want to mess around with it for too long.

It would be nice to get listpages to display in columns rather than a single column.

Please calm down. The world "bible" is used in many senses, like "The bible of something" — meaning: the full book covering some topic. In can be even "The bible of stealing".

It's not our problem that you have special feeling to one of the generic words. Also note, that there is good and bad Karma in religion.

And please have more distance. No one but you criticized the chosen word from its beginning on Wikidot. And it's been months!

Broz, try to imagine when some important words for you - what are they? - used in opposite meaning. Say some site in another culture will name a picture with user's foto - Jesus. Or stop list of rule violators - Bible. Then you will see that the original meaning distorted and diluted. We have different notions in different cultures globally - no need to chose one which some heard of but never grasped a meaning but would like to use the combination of sounds. Given the wiki is global - you actually act not very wise. It ofcourse up to you - but I regret on your choice.

While you are right to point out that Karma has religious connotations, Wikidot is an Internet platform rather than a place for acts of worship. The term "karma" has widespread use in online forums and discussion sites. One typical definition from

Karma is a built-in function within the Wilders Security Forums that allows a person to award and be awarded points for good forum postings.

You can search on Google: "definition karma forum".

So while you are welcome to your definition of the word, we will happily stick with ours.

The word "karma", "guru" and others are just good. They are used with success on different forums. The terms are familiar to most Internet users. Why should we name it differently?

Dears, could not refrain to provide you with the definition of karma to make your choise easier. Karma now - is an action which violate someone free will. Very soon the definition will be - the word, thought or action motivated else but by the Love.You see the difference. BR Victor

Dears, I respect your free choice, but the word karma is a bit sensitive issue for some including me. WHen you substitute a meaning into your new meaning - can cause some distortion. Indeed karma is a negative subject - means it could be negative or null. Same time you use some notions as guru and avatar. It is like to call an item - Apostol or Pope or Bible. As far as your karma rises you better be anything then guru. These words became international notions describing very important issues. So look deeper into the notions you use. If someone will start to absorb a notion not from its origin but from web lingua - this will cause a mess in their vacabulary when they will face the real meanings. If you experience shortage in terms - feel free to ask my help. It will be a pleasure for me. We actually do not want someone to think that God is a button, karma is a measure of activity rising with the extent of activity, and Bible is a say contact information, dont we? Best regards Victor

The and (open source) sites seem to have been all but abandoned by the developers and most users. I just don't check in very often because there's little or no new activity when I do.

I have continued the open source fight on my own site:

My guides are pretty current, but I have not even tried to use the VMWare image since giving it a shot and failing back when it was first released. Since v2 has been on hold for so long, my only focus has been on using v1. I have had great success running v1 on stand-alone hardware and in VirtualBox VMs.

BTW, there is no need for running update-2008-08-19.php if you do fresh installs from the SVN repository.


Got it! Had to run update-2008-08-19.php to generate auth pages. I think your guides need a major overhaul…there are too many of them and not one is up to date.

Anyway, I guess now I can try to modife the source then..

Re: How to generate a test site? by tukeztukez, 22 Jan 2009 15:37

Ok, now I managed to create a default page and default template page. The guides say I can login on my wikidot now, but auth:login site doesn't exist. I cannot login anywhere. What should I do now?

Re: How to generate a test site? by tukeztukez, 22 Jan 2009 15:03

I used this guide to setup Wikidot with VMWare on my Windows Vista. I tested, that the system works somehow. I can load, which shows some php errors. I'm not so interested in wikidot2 though, I would like to possibly contribute to wikidot1 project. I tried to see this page, it connects, but the page is blank file. How can I generate test site?

How to generate a test site? by tukeztukez, 22 Jan 2009 01:35

I've been thinking about the named content as well. I would also like to see generalization of page variables as are available in templates on non-template pages. Things like page title, author, create and modify dates, number of comments tied to the page, etc.

Anyways, a big second on the named content as it also removes the positional constraints on the page source.


I'd like to use a template for race descriptions, with content placeholders for specific fields, but I wish there was a way to have optional fields?


I'd like the "Series" field to be optional — some races don't have it. So I wish there was a way that the template could leave out "Series:" if the content placeholder for it is empty.

Also, and this is just an idea out of my head, so I don't know if it is worthwhile, but maybe it would be neat if content fields could be named, i.e,
==== Series ====
instead of just being numbered in order.
