how do you delete pages? how can you rename them?
Yonat_Sharon (Monday, September 30, 2002, 23:05):
I have not yet implemented the UI for deleting and renaming pages (the plan is for chiq_chaq to show you all the references to the page, so that you can decide if making such a change is really appropriate). Until I do, you can manually type these requests in the URL box:

.../chiq.pl?delete=some_page
.../chiq.pl?rename=some_page&to=new_title

is the data format exchangeable with other wikis? and will future updates of chiq_chaq be backward compatible data wise? meaning i can easily upgrade the software while preserving the content?
Yonat_Sharon (Tuesday, October 01, 2002, 12:45):
I think it wouldn't be difficult to write a script that converts from ward's wiki (or other wikis) to this format. I just haven't done this yet. The reverse conversion may be a little problematic because of the page size limit in ward's wiki. In any case, chiq_chaq simply stores the plain-text of the pages as regular files, each one named page_title.chiq. So the chiq_chaq side of the conversion would be easy to write.

I am currently not planning to change the page storage format. But If I ever will, there will be a script to migrate to the new format. Promise! happy

The stats don't work at all with Mozilla & its derivatives (Navigator, etc). Are there plans to make this work? (please? happy ).
Yonat_Sharon (Tuesday, March 11, 2003, 08:51):
Yes, but it will probably not happen soon. (It requires some fancy XML/XSL stuff, and Roy_Sharon who does that stuff, is busy with a new job right now.)
Dan_Mills? (Wednesday, March 12, 2003, 02:30):
That is a shame (about the wait, not the new job blink ), but I guess I can wait to see it! Maybe you could start with a very limited fallback version at least for now, though?

By the way, the chiq.pl in the latest tarball (I don't know about the rest, I didn't download them) is in DOS format (with CRLF at the end of each line), which causes some interesting errors when you try to run it.

Other than that, installation was easy, congratulations happy

A quick dos2unix fixed the CRLFs in my distro. Great work!
I've tried to use the method for deleting pages:
chiq.pl?delete=some_page?
And it doesn't seem to work for me. Will there be a UI method to do this?
Maybe one day... what error are you getting?
