Definitely something we should do, but I reckon when we finish the portable version first. Feel free to help!
I'm thingking .txt files so that it can be printed on any computer. also, a command list with syntax and explinations would be good too.
Exactly how was it done? It seems you copied the page and gave it a * category, then used the ListPages module to get them on one page. Is that how, or is there another way?
I don't know what you mean by "copied the page"… but yes, I apply tags to particular pages, and then I use the ListPages module to include a list of pages tagged with a particular tag.
OH! I get it. Every page automatically has a copy of itself with the category *. Ok, I think I might be able to help now.
Actually, there is no category "*". Instead, computers interperit the star as "everything" or "with no limits".
It's used in file save/open dialogues… You may see something saying:
Save as a word document (*.doc)
That means that you can save it as anything, as long as it ends with ".doc". So when we specifiy the category as "*", we are simply saying, "all categories".
Thanks for doing the routines for me!
I thought it was *.*
No, "*.*" means any file whatsoever. "*.doc" means a Microsoft Word document of any name.
Likewise, "hello.*" would display all file types where the title is "hello".
Oh, now I understand. A * means any name for its position. So, *.docx is any Microsoft 2007 file, Timothy.* is any file with Timothy as its name, and *.* is any name with any file type leading to any file. Thus, *:portable would be a portable of any category, and portable:* is any page under the portable category. Thanks!
Yes, I can see that you completely understand now.
But one thing: I'm not sure if the *:portable or portable:* would work with Wikidot. Your logic is perfect, but I don't think Wikidot supports that (yet).
If you want to view the source of a long-loading page, such as the portable site page (or make edits, and other stuff without loading the page), simply add /norender/true to the end of the URL.
