Mere mortals allowed to edit HOWTOs. With the tree of nodes, multiple groups, and precedence rules, permissions get complex fast. Zeus 2009-03-27
currently we can upload files only to :gtspring2006: . Can you also give :chaosbook: subdirectory the upload permission? — Predrag Cvitanovic 2009-03-09
The schedule looks good now. The weird effect was caused not by the length of “Read Halcrow” entry. Rather, if one removed “Details” section currently after the table, and placed it ahead of the table, the rows were single spaced entries - but with “Details” section appended, the table became double spaced. Never mind, we have more serious worries… — Predrag Cvitanovic 2009-02-27 00:49
Whipped the table into shape. The lines in a table get broken up and multi-lined if your browser isn't wide enough. I shortened the text in the schedule's “Read Halcrow” entry. Does that help? It looks good to me. John Gibson 2009-02-26 12:09 EST
Oh man that's horrific! …a while later… Ok, I tweaked some elements of the table that looked unusual to me and found that ''text'' inside the table was throwing off the dokuwiki formatting. I switched those instances to
%%text%% and it works ok. John Gibson 2009-02-26 10:34 EST
John, look at the schedule. I appended text further down the page, and now the table looks fecal. It's much worse with the blog of blogs table - if insert a link behind the table - the disaster sets in. Try appending text after it yourself. — Predrag Cvitanovic 2009-02-25 14:45
It looks like the 2dturbulence and spieker blogs are currently visible while not logged in. Jon Paprocki 02/24/09 10:32 AM
Permissions fiddling: gtspring09 is readable to all but blogs requires gt09 registration for reading. Also blocked uploading to root channelflow namespace, since this was getting cluttered with stuff that belonged elsewhere. Moved siminos and paprocki images to gtspring2009 namespace as part of this and fixed some links to those. This might have broken links to these images elsewhere, but those can be fixed when found. Predrag, do you really want to open our research blogs to the world? I am pretty darned open but I would expect to get burned regularly if I opened my research blog to the world. I get burned often enough as is!
John, have you made most things under
:gtspring2009 internal. That prevents anybody else from seeing what the study group schedule is, and amusing things like
:gtspring2009:pc.png becoming invisible to strangers, even on the visible
www.channelflow.org/dokuwiki/doku.php/gtspring2009 page. I vote for keeping everything open unless someone from Illinois or Wisconsin desires particular pages kept secret from the prying eyes of upright tax paying citizens and Wet & Wild voyeurs — Predrag Cvitanovic 2009-02-22 16:07
Good, thanks. Agreed that Latex plugin is not too great. It doesn't bother me too much, though. From my perspective it's ok if blogging looks crappy as long as it's cheap, fast, and simple. Otherwise it doesn't get done. Same goes for blogging figures. Once the I know what the right equations, ideal notation, and optimal figures are, then I'll switch to svn+latex and put effort into beautiful presentation. John Gibson 2009-02-05 12:09
Impressions so far - wiki is very easy to learn, easy to use. Even paper printed wiki seems pretty (at least if it is the Gibson blog). However, one thing bugs me - LaTeX is ugly, and painful - cannot clip back and fort between *.tex files and the wiki without lots of editing. — Predrag Cvitanovic 2009-02-01 09:42
