CSS Per Category — Including Inexisting Pages!

Something that's slightly annoying about Wikidot is that when it comes to creating new pages that previously didn't exist, the Live Template isn't taken into account. That is, if you use the CSS module in the Live Template, then that isn't applied to the page until after you save the page. All proceeding edits work fine, but the initial edit doesn't look how it's supposed to.

But of course, they don't call me a Wikidot Super-Guru for nothing! Read on to see how it's done properly.

Hi Wikidotians!
A question about the missing "gallery" command for "external" images let me think about a possibility to simulate such gallery with external images.
Because I need it for my genealogy-template I did it with dataforms on an autonumbering category "image-ext" on our Community Playground
such a "Gallery" page like has this look:

Advanced Search!

Hello Fellow Wikidotians,
Recently, I released the new Advanced Search CSI (cross-site include) - an easy to use extension to the current search module. This new include extends the current search module in a number of ways:

  • users are presented with a UI to set search filters for category, author and title
  • admins can set default values for each of these values
    • in addition, admins are also able to enforce these default values (thereby restricting search results to the designated default filters)
    • plus, admins may hide these filter fields from users to remove confusion
  • admins are able to set the label of the search button

The NewPage module was updated on April 29th to include a new feature: Autosave. This has been a heavily-rated wish since the feedback site was created (it was the very first wish)!
