Adding images
1. Images can be a great help in understanding certain procedures.
2. Please be careful about image size and format. Look at what others have done.
3. Images are uploaded by following the link "Upload file" in the left panel which takes you to the upload page.

When I click the upload file link, I get a wiki page that says:
Quote:
The upload directory (/home/cwoodford/wiki/en/images) is not writable by the webserver.

I am logged in the wiki.
Cheers

I got that error message too, but assumed it was because I had been screwing around with OpenDNS. Never assume...

I sent Warren an email yesterday, and he has asked Matt (his former associate who set up the Wiki in Drupal) if he can help. Now I will add this to the list.

Update: they are working on it. Got this reply from Matt:
Quote:
Jerry and Warren,

I tried to log into the server last night, but ssh connections to http://www.mepis.org and many other variations were quickly refused:

ssh: connect to host http://www.mepis.org port 22: Connection refused

Warren, can you tell me what I need to do to access the wiki files?

-Matt

If I can't use this link to register to be able to edit the wiki would it be possible for someone else who is already registered to register me and then I will change the password? I don't even know if that's possible.

I can try. Send me a PM with the user name, password and email address you want to use.

I sent Warren and Matt a reminder yesterday, so hope to see some progress.

This email from Matt updates work this problem:

I did look into adding a captcha extension, but the wiki software is too far out of date. So we need to upgrade all of the wiki's to get captcha working, so we can enable new user registration. Phew! So for now, just hold on for a little longer as we figure out the best way to do this that will be maintainable in the future.

Has there been any update on this? I tried to create a Wiki account this evening but cannot see a "create account" button of any kind.

Thanks.
