Yonat, is there a way to break your poem format (two columns) without inserting a visible line or makeing a text line longer then x (was it 40) characters?
Yonat_Sharon (Saturday, April 12, 2003, 22:16):
Just add lots of spaces after some of the lines, to make them longer than 49 characters.
Does chiq chaq have a Version History feature for a page? If not how can users revert spam attacks and other vandalism? See http://wiki.chongqed.org//VersionHistory
To go back to previous versions, click on the "Edit entire page" link, than check the "Show versions" box and select the date of the desired version.
Ah yes. A checkbox. How odd. It seems to work OK though, but does it discard old revisions after a time?

Cleaning up wiki spam, I was not able to rescue any content from this wiki: w w w.ultrasaurus.com/cgi-bin/chiq/chiq.cgi?flashcom_wiki? (deliberately not linked properly) I guess the legitimate version of the page was eventually disgarded by the software right?

Take a look at this wiki. This is a ghost town full of spam running chiq chaq software. Wiki software developers should think about solutions to this problem. Lazy administators install your software then dont bother paying any attention to it, and the result is a ghost town playing host to spam links, and encouraging spammers (which is then a problem for the active wiki community).

Anyway thanks for answering my question so quickly. Maybe the "Show versions" textbox should be mentioned somewhere above. (Feel free to move this text somewhere more appropriate too)

does it discard old revisions after a time?
When ever you edit a page, versions older than 30 days are deleted. (this is admin-configurable, btw – see Chiq_Chaq_Configuration)
adding a comment does not affect the backup versions.

sorry about you wiki. sad

It's not my wiki.... If it was I would shut it down. That's my point. See ghost town.
Can I create a link by using a single word (no underscores....)?
Sorry, no. But you can easily add single_word_linking to the script.
