Till today I have not found a better place for "simple" wikis … it is so easy to maintain a wiki for "minecraft" stories (images, videos a.s.o), or sport-club log book.. private family-notes and logs.
I had a look on some other platforms and it is not so easy to get the same (web-browser only needed) solutions!

Oh goodness, I'm SO sorry! My 3DS sucks at Wikidot pages and it's very slow, so it's common for an AJAX error to occur. Please delete all duplicate forums and this post right here. Thank you very much!

Hello Wikidot! Bio_Hazard1282_rPi3Bio_Hazard1282_rPi3 here. I and a few others have made a "new" site intended for Web Development. Still in it's "beta" stage, so there's TONS of work to do on it. Us here are trying to find ways to add tutorials, games, examples, articles, etc. If any of you are web developers or even geeks (I am a big geek myself), it is highly appreciated that you become a member! Any or all help is very kind of you, so if you want to join, click the link below.

I agree, I use my wikis mainly for creative projects and keeping track of writing, story ideas, etc. Wikidot is excellent for this and its also why I worry about the content disappearing. I have years and years of work that I have stored on here.

I was thinking the same thing, Wix seems to make some nice sites.

I have had a 1and1 (now Ionos) shared hosting account for years. It's fairly inexpensive (plus, my golfing buddies pass the hat once a year to help cover costs for the small site I run for our social league) and performance is fine for the low volume my sites generate. I mainly goof around with Wordpress these days. I also help a couple of relatives who set up their small business sites on Wix. It's got the kind of interface that would have been great for Wikidot had they continued development.

You deserve it! You work so hard and we appreciate you!

I agree it is so hard to find something similar to wikidot. You are running the place!

I think if anyone deserves getting a response from Michal, it's you and he should respect you enough to take the time to do that. He has been pretty cheeky about hiding means to contact him online. Why does he enjoy paying for hosting for so many spam sites? I don't get it, I would think he would at least do something about that.


Omnia mutantur, nihil interit.

Gosh I agree so much. I miss those days, even if i cant program myself out of a paper bag. It was still exciting to see what features came around and thinking up new ones to add. Every now and then i try to poke the hornets nest to elicit /any/ kind of response. But at this point it's just a dead horse.

Also I agree Helmut should be getting paid. Just the spam alone is a massive full-time job. (I'd do it if i was paid, it is just so time intensive and the volume could be decreased with improvements to how accounts are made….)

Where did you move your content, if you don't mind me asking. Any recommendations?


Omnia mutantur, nihil interit.

I completely agree with @cold_blood3d. In my case, I'm thankful for Wikidot's stability and reliability, compared to services I've used in the past. For my needs, Wikidot has been doing just fine (except for the problems we had with search, contact forms, and notifications, which were solved after a while). I really hope the maintenance team will become more responsive. They've created a great service and fostered a wonderful community, and it would be a pity if all that went to waste. By the way, my site is a digital library and academic hub. My needs may not be as sophisticated of heavy duty, so it all depends on what you expect to accomplish.

This is a difficult question. In many ways we are lucky that Wikidot didn't become (or get acquired by) a web giant. Far too many promising services went that route only to be shut down, have their functionality severely diminished, and end up as yet another black hole of dead links. If I used any other provider back in 2008, my sites would surely be long gone by now. Remember "Wetpaint" wiki-farm? It's now a celebrity gossip site. Wikidot has been running relatively reliably for 13 years and not destroyed itself or its users, which is something to be commended. Wikidot is underpinned by impressive technology. That said, in recent years it has fallen behind in terms of innovation and support, which has been deeply frustrating. It needs a push to be truly great. So many things would be possible "if only" some little feature worked or wasn't broken. It also hasn't kept up with the user-friendly interfaces that have become the norm. The choice really depends on your particular use-case and what you are trying to build.

me too But hope that next year will be better than
this year But I'm more enthusiastic than last year

Or because I am older, I have to hurry to do more
But aiming to change himself in some matters every year,
but still can't do it It's not easy, but it's not difficult.
Up to the cut. How much to force myself
I hope that next year I will be more diligent than this year.

No.

I hate to say that. I've been here for years. My sites were some of (if not the) heaviest number of web hits here. I love the place, and it was great before, but the developers / owners have basically just walked away and abandoned it. Though, they certainly have no problem processing payments for services that are not rendered.

So, no. Seek something elsewhere.

Append "/norender/true" to your search page URL and it will stop the redirect so you can edit the page and fix the problem.

  • displays image from Flickr and links to the original Flickr page; if the secret is provided the image is available despite being marked as non-public

This depends ob the status of the image/picture on Flickr - if non-public ( = privat or secret), than such photoid_secret can help - this only seeable within your own account on Flickr.

Try the normal flickr:id ( flickr:photoid ) as argument if your album on flickr is normal "public".

Re: Private Flickr Images by Helmut_pdorfHelmut_pdorf, 11 Aug 2019 16:44

Hello!! I'm working on a little wiki for a hobby, and would like to keep it private for now, including the pictures. So I've put the pictures in a private flickr album. Wikidot Syntax says it's possible to link to a private flickr image if you have "the secret". What is the secret? Is it some string of characters I find on my flickr site? In the syntax section this is what it says, "format: flickr:photoid_secret example: flickr:149666562_debab08866 description: displays image from Flickr and links to the original Flickr page; if the secret is provided the image is available despite being marked as non-public"
So my question is, where did "debab08866" come from in the example??
Thanks!!

Wikidot has always been a great starting grounds for people due to it's ease of use relative to other wiki styles, however like Ed said, there's been problems with the site itself. Search functions broke on a wiki I edit for ages and recently seem to be working alright now. I've been getting a lot of "The ajax request failed. code 500" errors recently when editing. The owners really have let the site go and it's a real shame. Hopefully they'll kick it back into gear at some point.
