You'd need API access to do this easily. if leiger sees this, he may offer assistance. He's our resident API guru and knows his way around the API better than most. I have no idea if any cost would be involved. You could try shooting him a PM - he may see that email notification sooner than this thread.

Say I want pages in the _default category to have a piece of metadata.

I create a data form template with three inputs: the page title, the page body, and the metadata. Now, when I create new pages in _default, this metadata is available.

Let's say there's already a large number of pages in _default, large enough that manual "fixing" of each page to move the page body and page title into the dataform isn't possible. (Of course, as the metadata is new, it would still have to be filled in manually)

How feasible would it be to automate this? Is it possible without having to delete each page and recreate them with the data form? Can edit history, comments etc be preserved? Would a bot be able to make these edits without disastrous consequences for the pages involved?

Many thanks for any help.

I assume that you can't filter out votes from users for a single article with this? It catches all of their votes?

Let me tell you 301 redirect is a permanent redirect which passes between 90-99% of link equity (ranking power) to the redirected page.
301 refers to the HTTP status code for this type of redirect. In most instances, the 301 redirect is the best method for implementing redirects on a website.
And 301 Moved Permanently. This prevents content from being displayed on multiple urls when the path module is enabled.

Dang, I thought that would work.

I think the only way to work around it would be to target each field by its class name that is created based on the field name in the form definition. As long as you use different field names on each of your data form definitions, you shouldn't get any cross-over between styling different forms.

It's been a while since I took a deep dive into styling forms. With the state of development around here, I'm not building much of anything new and have migrated a bunch of work-related stuff to other platforms.

Can you post/ message these accounts on ?
Could be the spam filter team can remove these accounts and with them their votes ( I am not sure if this can work and help in this case).

At the SCP Foundation wiki, we've recently had an influx of trolls coming along to vandalize our site and pile up downvotes from sockpuppet accounts. Would it be possible to remove votes from accounts that have been banned from the wiki?

The storage of files on a free account of word press is 3gb. There are lots of other website are on the web which also provide same facility but from my experience i wrote that you can also check some other web services too.

I let your post alive - the only reason is the current behaviour of Wikidot-team - not interesting in any customer dialog.

I am not sure how big the storage of files on a free account of word press could be.

If you want to build a good, mobile friendly and functional website quickly, you’ll need to choose a platform (also known as content management system).
To put simply, a content management system (or website building platform) is a user-friendly platform for building websites and managing your own online content, instead of using a bunch of loose HTML pages.
Here’s why I recommend using WordPress to build your website
WordPress vs. HTML & CSS: Learning HTML from scratch can take 6+ months, yet alone CSS and PHP. Having a basic knowledge of HTML can help you gauge things more quickly, but if you want to create a website within a day or two, learning HTML isn’t a viable option.
Website builders are expensive and often very limited. They are good for one-page websites, but not more.
But for beginners, I strongly suggest sticking to WordPress.
1 A domain name (a web address like
2 Hosting (a service that connects your site to the internet)
3 Log into your WordPress dashboard
4 Access FREE themes
5 Install your new theme
Installing Plugins to Get More out of WordPress
Congratulations – you’re ready to launch!

It depends on which version of flash you are using because new version is controlling some previous features of its due to some security feature that were encountered by the security panel of flash. Also it depends on the operating system but if your os is not changed for a while i recommend you to use your previous version of flash at your own risk!!!

".rpg-data-form > #edit-page-form > " is not working for me ,

I've tried building the class value around the form but inspecting the page never shows any class.


[[div class="rpg-data-form"]]

Cool !… thanks !

That looks great. Nice work!

No this is very helpful I under stand the concept very well but I'm still struggling with the structure, ".rpg-data-form > " just saved my hours of digging. :)

I however found a different method of marking the sections using the input fields so I changed the layout.

Here is my code:

#edit-page-form .form-control {width: auto;}
#edit-page-form .form-group { margin-bottom: 0px;}

select[name^='field-size'] {
  float: left;
  margin-right: 5px;

#edit-page-form input[name$='-1'],
#edit-page-form input[name$='-5'],
#edit-page-form input[name$='-9'],
#edit-page-form select[name$='-1'],
#edit-page-form select[name$='-5'],
#edit-page-form select[name$='-9'] { background-color: #FFFFDD; }

select[name$='-10'] { background-color: #FFDDDD; }

select[name$='-7'] { background-color: #AAFFDD; }

The challenge with styling forms when they are in edit mode it that Wikidot does not generate any unique IDs or classes for the various elements. That's why you have to screw around figuring out specific nth-child() elements. Thankfully, nth-child() supports some math options so you can handle repeating blocks like your 10 tile sections without writing a lot of repetitive CSS.

If you use your browser's inspect tool while your form is in edit mode, you can right-click the element in the HTML source and "copy selector" (I use Chrome, other browsers may call it something slightly different). What you get is a CSS path that will uniquely target that specific element and it will almost always involve one or more nth-child() pseudo-classes in the path.

If you end up using more than one data form on your site, you'll want to wrap the form in a div with a unique class name. If you had, for example, 2 data forms on different pages, you might wrap them in divs with classes of rpg-data-form and signup-data-form. Then your CSS paths might look something like this.

.rpg-data-form > #edit-page-form > div:nth-child(3) {
    border-top: 2px solid red;
.signup-data-form > #edit-page-form > div:nth-child(3) {
    border-top: 2px solid green;

This allows the CSS to target the 3rd child of each form separately.

I love the browser inspect tool. It's my favorite way to identify elements to style. It also allows you to edit the CSS and see what the changes look like before making them permanent. It's worth spending some time learning the basics if you want to get into customizing your site with CSS. There's tons of tutorials if you search "using a browser inspect tool".

Apologies if you're already familiar, but others lurking about might find it informative.

I have no idea which currencies Wikidot will accept - but think the easiest way is to pay with € or $ , or in "bitcoins" if you have such one. show the possibilities.
And upgrade to pro is very good explained on
