I have this too on m wiki-site

I use the anchor link on 2018 page (http://brucebase.wikidot.com/2018)

From another page (http://brucebase.wikidot.com/2018-list) I link (to jump to) the 2018 page using the following anchor link.
January 09, 2018

I actually jump to page 2018, and to January 09, 2018. But then I jump again to the end of the page. This makes using the anchor useless ;-(

Update: Appearantly this only happens using Google Chrome, on Firefox, Edge and Opera (all latest versions) it works as intended. Not tested with IE.

Have a look on your admin page: http://71ch-null.wikidot.com/_admin

You can see on the accessPolicy screen ( second part ) the setup for the application possibility ( using the Join button) .:
http://handbook.wikidot.com/en:site-manager-access-policy

I think, it would be a good idea to change the source code of teh Join Button not to "Search" but " make an application."

If you go to your Profil page http://www.wikidot.com/user:info/heidied1974 and click on your last changes you will see that only your own wiki was changed.

and: "templates" are in our thinking more live "_template" pages with a predefined layout of all pages in one "category:"

Hi! I'm Mrs. Díaz, master in Computational Education of Interamerican University of Puerto Rico, student. I was creating a wiki as a curso requirement and I made a few changes on the template. I thought it was changing just in my site, but the changes are made on the public theme as well? If that's true, how can it be changed backed?

I don't think I'll need this, but I see how it is done.

Basically, I just want to make personal notes on a site, so the user is currently the same: me. And with the basic template, the snippet with my user name is in the text of every new page, so I can just type there my notes and that's all.

Re: Hidden content by greenvoid-rpggreenvoid-rpg, 18 Feb 2018 19:51

There's another alternative that I came up with you may want to consider:
Per-User CSS

If you have several pages where you want to hide/show content, it can be easier to maintain because you just have to keep track of which users have access and won't have to edit the snippet code on each page every time you want to add or remove a user.

It's a different kind of "clunky", but does work very well once the back end framework is set up.

Re: Hidden content by Ed JohnsonEd Johnson, 18 Feb 2018 15:38

Cool, thanks.

Seems clunky a bit (not that I could do better), but works perfectly. :)

Based on the way you marked up your screenshots, it looks like you want to remove virtually all margins and padding around your text and images. Is that correct? The view in your screenshots is the "expected" one, but if you want to eliminate the margins and padding, it will require more CSS editing.

In order to make the sidebar narrower, you need access to editing the layout, which can only be done with paid accounts. The current layout uses 9 columns for the main content and 3 columns for the sidebar (remember, the layout is based on Bootstrap v3.2, which is an older version of Bootstrap, but still works well). By changing the main content to 10 columns and the sidebar to 2 columns, the sidebar can be made narrower. Since you can't make these edits with a free account, I created a site that you can clone so you have narrow options for the standard theme.

Clone my Standard Narrow Sidebar site and you will find "Std [color]-Narrow Sidebar" options for all of the color choices. All of the "Narrow Sidebar" options use the 10 column/2 column layout.

As far as removing margins and padding goes, I really recommend learning to use your favorite browser's inspect tool. I prefer Chrome or Firefox for that purpose. To get started, it's as simple as right-clicking and choosing "inspect" from the context menu. It's the easiest way to identify which elements need CSS edits to achieve your desired results.

Re: ? About side-bar by Ed JohnsonEd Johnson, 17 Feb 2018 23:40

Yes, there is a very good chance to make differences in the rendered layout, if the hidden content is not visible by source or history ( permisions)

You can use the snippet http://snippets.wikidot.com/system:page-tags/tag/specific_users_only/category/code
or perhaps better http://snippets.wikidot.com/code:specific-users-only ( SUO)
http://snippets.wikidot.com/code:alternative-specific-users-only

typical example is our top-bar menu, where the admins ( I am showing only the nr.1.- 2) have a different column to "normal" users, defined by user-.name ( and the "unique" code ! )

[[include :snippets:suo START unique=first|type=hidefrom

Let me know if this is helpful and makes more sense now that I fixed my mistakes and got things cleaned up.

Many thanks for your help!
Now it looks like this:
http://piccy.info/view3/12072519/2c15a58e567c03ddc31139be54e79aa7/1200/
http://piccy.info/view3/12072527/babc44623371dc6c63aac86012335b2c/orig/

Does this work as expected?

I would like to reduce the width of the sidebar. In this case, I could get some free spaces on both sides of the container (like in http://default-template.wikidot.com/) However, I want to keep enough space (as currently after adding your code) for screenshots on a page.

I would be happy with the size of http://testwkd4wb.wikidot.com/ (my posts + your corrections above). But probably it's impossible to port these sizes to 'standard-theme' because 'standard-theme' will lose its mobile-friendly features.

Well, as I already said, the sizes of the theme http://default-template.wikidot.com/ would be sufficient for my site.

Re: ? About side-bar by otto55otto55, 17 Feb 2018 18:35

So, I think the title and summary says it all, but how could I hide part(s) of a page's contents from viewers, but still set it to be visible to certain users?

I got things cleaned up and have to apologize. I made a couple of major mistakes in the CSS in my previous posts because I was working from memory and things I found using Chrome's Inspector tool.

The media query CSS I told you to use was missing a set of curly brackets around each media query and they were in reverse order. Once I was able to edit these things directly on your site, my mistakes became clear.

Here is the correct CSS for the global-css page:

/* the container widths had defaults of 1170px, 970px, and 750px respectively*/
@media (min-width: 768px) {
    .container {
        width: 650px; /* was 750px */
    }
}
@media (min-width: 992px) {
    .container {
        width: 95%; /* was 970px */
    }
}
@media (min-width: 1200px) {
    .container {
        width: 100%; /* was 1170px */
    }
}
 
main > .content {
    border-radius: 0; /* default was 4px */
}

I also go t the theme assignments straightened out in site manager.
To make global changes, use the global-css page to edit your CSS. To make edits specific to the "M+" theme, use the "http://testwkd5.wikidot.com/css:theme-mplus" page that I created for that purpose. If you change to a different theme under "You" in the site manager's theme admin, CSS on this page will no longer be applied.

I have to get to my job that pays the bills right now. Let me know if this is helpful and makes more sense now that I fixed my mistakes and got things cleaned up.

I just joined your test site as a member. If you go your your site manager and promote me to an admin, I can help sort out this stuff on the back end theme settings.

Done. You are an admin. Please.

One more question.
How to change the color of this my theme ? I read this how-to http://standard-template.wikidot.com/help:css-themes
But it says about changing of "Standard Theme" but not user's theme (AFAIU)
For example, is it possible to port to this my theme the color scheme from 'Standard-Black' theme ?

I think you need to make sure to follow the steps in "A Theme from Scratch" to make sure the Global CSS edits you made get applied.

Thanks for help, Ed !

I have added the code.

For now I have the new corners but unfortunately, the sizes of the container have not changed.
What's my mistake ? What I should do ?

My monitor has 1366x768
I am trying to put (only for testing) this image http://i.piccy.info/i9/b072bc9b129593ff1fe9a100f28f4964/1518722965/76704/1081301/2.jpg at the top of the page http://testwkd5.wikidot.com/help:_home
But the sizes of the page do not allow that. I get problems with side_bar.
The sizes of this site http://testwkdsite.wikidot.com/start allow this.
I can put the image at the top of the page.

Where is my mistake ?

Re: ? About side-bar by otto55otto55, 15 Feb 2018 20:00

According to the pricing page, you need at least a Pro Lite account to utilize the API. I don't think they just grant API keys anymore, as that site was created at a time when the API was still being developed and required rapid feedback.


Timothy Foster - @tfAuroratide
Auroratide.com - Go here if you're nerdy like me

I posted this over at the developer wikidot site, but I'm not sure if anybody is active over there, so I'll request in here just in case.

Hello!

Over on the TI Basic Developer, we had some problems with the integrated chatboxes because they weren't as flexible as we would like them (realtime messaging), and other third party chatboxes did not offer a developer API that would allow us to integrate that app into Wikidot (in order to prevent spam users). The previous chatbox, which did not track users and did not integrate with Wikidot, was okay until we had some impersonation issues. This caused us to shut it down on April 18, 2017.

Recently, I have discovered a Google service called Firebase, which primarily gives authentication services, databases, storage, and hosting. With this, I was able to create a simple chat application that requires Google authentication to be able to read and write data from the database (so basically, read and write messages), and is also near realtime in terms of messaging. You can see a demo here. The chatbox is basically finished, but we still need an API key to be able to use the users.get_me method in order to use the Wikidot users name instead of the Google Account name. That's where my request comes in for an API key to use for this.

I would greatly appreciate if I were granted this API key. Thanks in advance! :)

To square up the corners, add this to the Global CSS page:

main > .content {
    border-radius: 0; /* default was 4px */
}

I was in a hurry yesterday trying to get my first answer posted before going out to dinner. Explaining a bit more, the @media sections in the CSS are used to define rules to apply at various breakpoints in the width of the window displaying your site's content.

Based on my example widths in the previous post, if you start with your browser at a width of 1200px or wider, the .container element will have a width of 100%. As you resize the window smaller width-wise, the .container width will stay at 100% until it falls below 1200px and the settings in the 992px breakpoint section will kick in. The width will stay at 95% until the width gets narrower than 992px and the settings for 768px will kick in (at this breakpoint, the sidebar also gets hidden).

Below 768px is when the menus collapse under the "hamburger" menu icon.

The best way to track down which elements you need to target to tweak the way things look is to use the inspect tool in your browser. I prefer using Chrome for this, but most modern browsers have a similar toolset. There are tons of YouTube videos on the topic. Here's one that gives you a basic overview of how it works. Many of us use the inspect tool regularly to help others by inspecting their site and helping with CSS changes like I've done here. It's a very powerful tool and worth your time to learn how to use it.

I hope all of this rambling helps give you a nudge in the right direction.

It's hard to say what the issue is without more specifics about what the error message says. If it's working on your laptop, but not your PC, it could be any number of things. I'd start by uninstalling and reinstalling Flash and Shockwave. Flash is no longer supported by Chrome, but you can install Flash PPAPI (or NPAPI if using Firefox).
