What I really mean is that following the one-click principle, the Forum link could have simply gone into the Murga Forum (or opened a new window to the Forum).

A number of requests in the wish list concerns the TinyMCE editor. IMHO, there are simpler and faster editors around, like widgEditor. This would require hard-coding in the appropriate page/s. If this is very difficult to do, perhaps just remove the TinyMCE module - this will speed up the editing interface.

I like mediawiki. There are drupal modules that could make the drupal wiki more wiki like. There is also a mediawiki extension called authdrupal which could be used to achieve single sign-on with an inhouse mediawiki installation. Both drupal and mediawiki support openid as well.

Whilst I dislike tinymce I think that widgeditor may be a little too simplistic. I'm certainly not sure how the image insertion would integrate with drupal. My beef with tinymce is speed and also the way that it encourages people to add a lot of unnecessary presentational instructions when they would be better focusing on clear writting instead.

An open license for the site content would be a good thing.

Me too
Would much rather be using something similar to mediawiki

The whole bottom line of the wiki page (which includes licensing). Serves very little purpose and if you know how to get rid of it, please do or at least modify. the licensing can be moved to a licensing wiki page. It is not worth a line of screen space. Nor is the repetition of the top title bar in my opinion..

I am loath to modify any part of the site until I have practiced with a test Drupal site I have set up. I would also recommend DarelJohn is given more access so his 'plain English' ideas can be incorporated.

I'm resisting the urge to revive the old wiki (which I have abandoned editing) to give the new site a fair chance of adoption.
http://pupweb.org/wikka/

Our previous CMS website was abandoned by the main developer (Puppian) because setting it up is easy (relatively) what makes it worthwhile is adding content consistently.

The new site is far more attractive, with more content and integration and deserves more support. Smile

Indeed, darrelljon has the appropriate access to puppylinux.org, but he needs a test Drupal setup for practice. (Am planning to create a practice site at pupweb.org over the weekend. But if you have one already, darrelljon can use an FTP account to access your Drupal folder. BTW, it should be Drupal 5.xx.)

Add: Done as of November 24 2400 GMT. Sent PM to darrelljon. The URL is pupweb.org/book1.

...... but I take issue with the info that Puppy 4 is only for newer processors. The latest Puppy (4.1.1) runs fine on my old Pentium 3. Very Happy


I've got a 4.1.1 retro file server running fine on a 400 mhz Pentium II Thinkpad 600E Laptop.

It VPNs fine and you can do anything in it over the LAN (even while serving files) that the T30 1.8 Ghz P4 does . . .and seemingly not a lot slower.

I guess if I wanted to run some form of windows (I don't often) and Puppy concurrently this is another way you could do it without a frugal install, CD, or virtual machine.

This page has gone missing or been deleted or incorporated into other pages? Not sure who did this. No 'revision' option comes up so I do not know what was there previously. I started to play with settings to find it and have decided to stop before I mess up completely . . .

http://www.puppylinux.org/wiki/development/advanced/applicationsdot-pets42-deep-thought-developers-todo-list

Any help in finding and restoring or solving this mystery appreciated Smile

a wiki search for 'todo' revealed
http://www.puppylinux.org/wiki/archives/old-wikka-wikki/categoryusercontributions/42-deep-thought-developers-todo-list
I am listed as the last editor but I cannot think why I would change the category.

btw
Yesterday I removed the category list from the side of the wiki pages (except the front one), is it better with more space?

Thanks Will, Smile

I would say yes, mainly because the categories made little sense Smile

I run Puppy 4.1.2 Retro on a Pentium 200 Mhz 32MB Ram mini laptop daily and it runs very well and fast enough for most things. The mini laptop is from circa 1998, so I'd have to agree that 4.0 isn't just for new hardware.

I've run it on 133 Mhz & 32MB Ram with similar performance. It's circa 1996.

I have a lot of old spec machines and run some version or another of Puppy 4.1.2 Retro on all of them.

With Linux I no longer feel the need to buy a new computer every other year. It's been about 5 years since I bought new and I doubt I will ever buy new again.

I personally think Puppy is the best success story out of all the Linux Distros. I have something like 200 Distros on CD's and yet I have mainly always used Puppy because it just works on everything.

Just wanted to say something to that effect and not meaning to hijack the thread.

Is anyone working on this?
http://puppylinux.org/
Code:
You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Seems to be down?

HostGator took us down AGAIN for high CPU usage! What th'!! They claimed it was because of 50 simultaneous accesses to the main page! I think we need to be thinking about another host. That's just rubbish, to kill the site without warning like that; not once but twice! Evil or Very Mad

Anyway, I made some changes to caching, etc and that seemed to satisfy them for the moment so it should be back now. Rolling Eyes
