Ah this is true! What I would want is the ability to hide all history so someone could not say, see all the sites I was part of even if they are public. They would have to work harder, rather than conveniently seeing all my activity on my profile!

It sounds like pro accounts can do this, which is a really strange choice?? I think it is wikidot showing its age and lack of updates. =__=

Thanks for the suggestion! I've not heard of Miraheze before. I really dont like mediawiki syntax, but I think that is probably the only alternative at this point. I'm not super convinced it can do the things wikidot can but I have not looked super hard into it. For all its flaws, wikidot lets folks like me who dont know beans about coding websites to make some pretty useful things. One of my sites acts like a pseudo deviant-art. Super rudimentary, but something i'd never be able to do on my own otherwise.


Omnia mutantur, nihil interit.

Yes, as far as we know Wikidot has not been actively developed or maintained for years. It sometimes gets bugfixes but in general it degrades faster than it's repaired.

If you don't have a large site and don't mind converting your pages manually, you could use Miraheze as an alternate wikifarm. It is backed by MediaWiki instead of Wikidot so you will need to adjust all your permissions, page syntax, etc manually to get it to work in a different system.

Unfortunately that backup utility is limited. It doesn't save revisions, votes, or forum comments, and all the files are unorganized and in a big pile instead of being attached to their respective pages.

Even more critically, there is no utility to restore a site from a backup. These backups are little better than nothing.

Yes, that is very similar, if not very much what i wanted to created. What i want is a listpage that shows the oldest threats sorted by the least amount activity at the top (I’m guessing based on when the last post was made). Also. Follow up question, would there be a way to sort by last post date and have it only show up after a certain amount of time, like 30 days?

Thanks Helmut,

Yes, access can be gained by typing in the direct url.

I don't think there has been an actual development team since 2016. I think it's just the CEO left and he does not pay attention to Wikidot anymore.

I still have not found a good alternative for wikidot, so its a big shame and worry.

Profile-informations are for Pro-account users in the setup "hide-able".

And the "staff" can always use the private forum within "private categories" ( not wikidot forum-threads) as there is played and shown on
http://community-playground.wikidot.com/admin-forum

Have a look!

As someone who has suffered stalking and harassment in the past, it is a dream to one day have an official version of this. Something that allows staff to do their thing but keeps normal users out.

It wont happen with how things are right now, bah!


Omnia mutantur, nihil interit.

When I have a look on one of the categories - like http://community.wikidot.com/forum/c-11432 - "the Coffee table" - then I see the "order by Last Posting date" of the threads.
When I go to the last page I see the oldest posting date / Thread date showing me the inactive threads anyway…

Is this not what you need?

forum section I help moderate a creative writing site in my spare free time, and part of that is archiving really old posts on the forum section. And at times, keeping track of that can be really tedious. I know that there're modules to some extent that allows you to see the most active threads on a site, but not the most inactive. Normally, I would try to reverse engineer the most active thread module but I can see its code or find it anywhere. Officially, I'm lost at how I can find a way to identify the most inactive threads on site. Could anyone help me? I believe this to be the right section for this type of question.

link to the MiniActiveThreads Module (I'm trying to create the inverse of this)

Sorry, I have no problems with the _admin page ( site manager) and all the edits I have done today..

Can anyone else log in to their site manager page?

I'm getting:

"An error occurred when processing your request."

Have tried Google Chrome / Firefox / Brave, all the same.

Site manager gone? by William SheridanWilliam Sheridan, 20 Sep 2021 11:45

Sometimes I think a telegram or a standard letter or a letter to be signed to the company address is better… I believe there is nobody of the wikidot company who reads the forum, the bugs and wishes.

It's now clear that EVERY page which uses the Include module now fails to reflect changes made to the parent page UNLESS the receiving page itself is also edited/saved which obviously defeats the whole purpose of the module.

Wikidot Gods,

I'm begging you, please fix this Include module issue…

What i want, is exactly like the wiki, a preview button that shows the theme in the SAME PAGE, not a screenshot.

Me again. It seems that the "preview" is working.

You can take a screenshot of the theme and upload it and put this:

[[image http://site-example.wdfiles.com/local--files/theme%3Ayour-file-name link="http://backrooms-wiki.wikidot.com/component:theme" width="140"]]

You can change the sizes if you want to.

Edit: I edit it to fix the code.

Re: Any idea? by HarvichHarvich, 16 Sep 2021 15:06

On Wikidot.com there is mentioned 89 mill pages, 789 new users … I think the old servers are overloaded and there is nobody to react.

Wikidot is dying (slowly ?)…
