Template:Documentation/OOoVersion Template:Documentation/OOoVersion


Answer to your message on the wiki:


I have now activated my e-mail on the wiki.

I did notice the several messages concerning new and other structure of the wiki-pages. However, that one started several weeks after I had added a great number of pages to Documentation/nl/.

I then went on using that structure to not mess up things bigger then I could anticipate. I was hoping, since I'm not that familiair with wiki, that someone might solve this problem for me, so that all my pages would end up in NL/Documentation.

I'm afraid you were that person and I have to thank you for that. I will try to place my new contrbutions to NL/Documentation

Thanks again for rearranging

I tried to setup the menu structure for the second chapter. But I seem to run into trouble in that I can't figure out how to get the pages within the chapter to show up in the menu. Could you check to see what I'm doing wrong?

Nevermind, I seem to have figured it out. --Kirk 00:35, 19 July 2007 (CEST)
It's a little complex to begin with, but once you see the pattern of how the TOC works, it starts to make sense :-) I made a small change to the template - changed max-width to just width. Internet Explorer is a broken browser, and does not respect CSS standards very well. It doesn't know max-width, so the easy solution is just to use a fixed width for the TOC. --Ccornell 08:41, 19 July 2007 (CEST)

New Template problem

I'm having a bit of difficulty getting the revised template to show the next page in a document. Could you have a look at Template:Documentation/ImpressFormattingTOC? Everything else seems to be working okay, I just can't seem see what I'm missing on that part. --Kirk 03:24, 13 December 2007 (CET)

You have implemented the TOC correctly. When you look at the TOC page itself, you will see it shown as you see it on the link above (the raw TOC, not the TOC as it is shown when included in a content page). The Next and Previous page parts of the TOC will show (in the raw TOC) as [[{{{PrevPage}}}|< Previous Page]] and [[{{{NextPage}}}|Next Page >]] on the TOC page itself - this is because the variables for the Next and Previous pages have not yet been given to the template.
When the TOC is included in a content page and you pass the Next and Previous variables, the links will be created on the content page. --Ccornell 11:49, 2 January 2008 (CET)

Syntax Highlighting for the Color Blind


I couldn't find an appropriate place to bring this up elsewhere, so I decided to contact you. I'm color blind, and I'm having a very hard time reading source code which is syntax-highlighted. I wind up having to select text, and read the selected text, or paste to another program.

The cyan (I think?) syntax color is nearly invisible for me, and entirely unreadable. See for example:

// 4-parameter template
class RNG_impl : public ::cppu::WeakImplHelper4<
        lang::XServiceInfo >
Good point! It is a horrible color for anyone to have to try and read. We need to look at the colors used for the syntax highlighting. Right now it is simply using the defaults. Changing the default colors means editing the CSS for GeSHI - so not too difficult. The old syntax highlighter had some color customizations that I can refer to as a place to start.
The best place to discuss this is on the mailing list. I will post updates and information there. --Ccornell 20:44, 25 March 2008 (CET)

SVG support on a Wiki

I would like to upload two rather large SVG graphs. Currently I have put them online as File:Module dependency graph without external.odg and File:Module dependency graph.odg. First, this Wiki does not support SVG upload. Second, are there any extensions to display them conveniently? (Something like [1] and [2]).  « Saperski // @talk »  03:14, 29 April 2008 (CEST)

I added SVG to the image whitelist, so you should be able to upload SVG images now.
There are issues with using SVG as a display image... mainly because people still using IE will need to install an extension to view them. The rest of us who use real browsers will not have any issues, but sadly... a lot of people still use non-compliant browsers. Adding functionality that requires end-users to install yet another plugin to use/view content is... undesirable.
It is possible to render the SVG images to PNG so that any browser can display them (eg IE) but this requires additional software (such as Batik) to be installed server side (for example Coffman/SVG_Extension).
For now, with SVG whitelisted, you can upload SVG images. If you wish to argue a case for SVG rendering, then take it to the dev@website mailing list. If there is consensus/agreement that it's a good thing, then we can take the next step of enabling SVG rendering. --Ccornell 10:10, 29 April 2008 (CEST)
Thanks, that enough for now. I think we can live with "Error creating thumbnail:" message (see Image:Module_dependency_graph.svg).  « Saperski // @talk »  22:22, 29 April 2008 (CEST)

Request for applying a pach for Korean language


I wonder if you are the right person whom I can ask to apply a patch. If then, would you take a look at the following bug page? The patch in the page is to handle Korean language correctly for the category page.

Jeongkyu 12:44, 22 May 2008 (CEST)

I just took a look at this, and attempted to apply the patch... all I managed to do was break the OOoWiki, so I rolled it back. The full source of the latest Language.php (from CVS) does not work either... not sure why. Someone (probably me) will have to set aside some time to figure out if we can implement this patch (find out why it's breaking the Wiki when the patch is applied)
Issues like this can also be brought up on the mailing list. In fact probably better there so that many eyes can see the discussion rather than here where only a few may see it. --Ccornell 13:15, 22 May 2008 (CEST)
Ah... I see. Thanks for your effort, though. I will also figure out the way to implement the patch. The wikipedia/ko may have some hints since the bug was already fixed there. If I have more information, I will bring the issue on dev@website. Jeongkyu 17:52, 22 May 2008 (CEST)

Thank you for your help, we will update you further -- Arthit 05:04, 8 December 2008 (CET)

A Sysops Bulletin Board

Might I suggest that a pseudo-user be created, with sysop privileges, and a name like the title here? It should show up on the Special listing, up top. Users could report problems there, and the various sysops could watch, fix, and update the BB as appropriate. (Anybody looked at Help:Editing lately?)--TJ 00:46, 2 January 2009 (CET)

Help:Editing has been fixed. That was just typical Wiki vandalism. We don't see a lot of it, but it does happen. We need to look at some rework on the Wiki front page, and some navigation changes too. This suggestion for a common problem reporting page could be something like a page linked from the left menu, or a link to an email address... it is something we do need to consider. --ccornell 09:42, 5 January 2009 (CET)

Russian edit war

Could you take a quick look at my user page, and at Sancho's user page? The History link from my page shows edit war clearly. I hope my little lecture will stop it; if not, the next user who undoes another's edits may find himself blocked for a day. If you think further action is required (including corrections to my admonitions), feel free. --TJ (Talk | Contribs) 01:02, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
