I've also been a community member/community admin for 13 or 14 years and only get occasional spam via DM.

the idea isn't to create endless pages just to include endless pages. But thank's for your help, I'll check these out.

Hi and welcome to Wikidot!
"..to process a comma separated dataform entry in the a text field " - the question is - how can you "process" a variable to create a predefined include statement with the next line command at the end for every list-entry?
You can do a lot with javascript or other languages, but that will be divided completely from wikidot data because of security causes anyway.
The variables from dataform entry can be used in predefined templates, but not in a separated iframe to use javascript , and the outcome from such a script can not be used in templates again.
To create endless pages with lots of include is not a good idea and a little missusing teh wiki idea with open source.

But I understand the target behind it - I have created some times ago http://genealogy-template.wikidot.com/ - using lots of variables and dataform entries like a database app for building a high end usable family database template .

I am sorry, I cannot help you in this case.
And the gurus who had made lots of snippets and good ideas ( see also http://blog.wikidot.com/main:index ) are gone since years…

Perhaps someone of these old gurus can read this and have an idea ?

Re: dataform list entry? by Helmut_pdorfHelmut_pdorf, 07 Apr 2021 06:34

So I'm making a wiki to manage my dnd campaign. I wanted to know if it's possible to process a comma separated dataform entry in the a text field so that I can type a list of every page I want to be included and have them show up in order. I'd use multiple text fields, but that would require making more boxes in the template for every item, and I'd like to have an unlimited amount of included pages without editing the template. Anyone have advice?

Sorry if this question is redundant, I'm new to wikidot.

Hi Shawn!
Fine to hear from you!

The search function works well on my FireFox and Win 10 - on the community.

Sometimes there are times were this function is not working - until the server are started ( Automatically? ) again.

Interesting question…
1. There is in the ListPages module only a selection "created_by Order by author screen name" possible - that is bad…
but
2. There are as an output some variables for the "foot" of the ListPages module possible:
%%total%% gives the number of pages selected.
and as an idea - a sort by "updated_by" would give the possibility to sum up these numbers..
3. also the IFTAG could help for selection - if the selected pages have a tag of the user who edited this page….

Re: Total Edits by Helmut_pdorfHelmut_pdorf, 27 Mar 2021 07:02

Summary: I was wondering if it would be possible to somehow show how many total edits a certain user has.


Imaginary Examples:

[[*user Anonymous Joe %%edits%%]]

or

[[module members group="members" showEditAmount="true"
[[/module]]

Is there any way to make it so that it shows how many total edits (ex. I have about 3,000 edits) , I or any other Wikidot user has? I understand my examples are very simple and terrible but hopefully my question is understandable.

Thanks,
Anonymous Joe

On the other side :
after 14 years as community admin I read the first time of this abusive messaging over the list of members of a public wiki site.
Is this a real attack in a massive kind of doing?

If it would be acceptable for me to join the community site with multiple alts to cast a wider net and catch more spammers. (Since only accounts on the community site or other popular wikis get spam PMs.)

Of course now it's just a matter of asking a mod if that would be allowed.

? ? ?

What would you like to ask?

A "Ban" can also help to stop a spammer of reading a wiki/site….

I have, I was checking that this was how spammers operate so I would know if joining the community site with multiple alts would help me catch them faster. Of course now it's just a matter of asking a mod if that would be allowed.

This is a normal way for spammer to see the members list of a public wiki to search for new targets… we can nothing do against this ( we could make the system-category non-viewable but this helps only against non members)
If you recieve spam messages on your PM account than you can always write the users on http://spambotdeathwall.wikidot.com/

Maybe its just a recent increase in spammers but I'd never gotten a spam message until I joined this site. It has made me wonder if perhaps spammers are using the community wikidot members list to find users to spam. Has anyone ever received spam before joining this site, or on an alt that isn't a part of this site?

I think - a public site he can always view…

Banning is no longer member and cant view the site blocked he just isn't member if i'm correct

As Helmut said, there is no one other than michal-frackowiakmichal-frackowiak, the sole owner, who has turned Wikidot into a (to use your analogy) runaway train. There are a few of us with some limited admin ability (mostly to smack down spammers) who still hang out here.

I wish we could help, but we can't. Unless or until Michal decides to start taking care of this customers, Wikidot will continue to degrade. The forum is littered with complaints like this and it has been going on for several years now. No bug fixes, no new features or improvements, and no communication. The silence is deafening. It's a real shame.

At the moment I have no real solution..

But see the howtos to try:
http://community.wikidot.com/howto:date-how-long-ago
http://community.wikidot.com/howto:frontforum-date-variable
and also the related articles.

Could be that this is possible only with html scripting embedded..

Is there a way to make it so the page will display the current year plus x years in-line? For example:

This will occur in the year [current year + 3].
