Post questions or comments about the ongoing Magmawiki project here.


Do crossed out features mean that they have been fully developed, or that they've been scrapped? --User:PurelyAtomic 02:44, May 13, 2010 (UTC)

It means they've been developed. Also, make sure to end your posts with your signature (--~~~~) by clicking the 10th button to the right. --Señor Pwnage 22:29, 14 May 2010 (UTC)

Thoughts on the new skin[edit]

It took me a while to find the "main page" link using the Magmawiki skin; i.e. I only just noticed it. Wouldn't it be better to have a link along the top? Or some sort of home page image?

Also, would it be possible to have a fixed width version of the Magmawiki skin that's say 800 or 1000px wide rather then fluid 100%? Just some thoughts. I like what I see so far. --Markavian 06:54, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

A Thought on Advertisement banners[edit]

I know this may seem a little bit of an odd comment, but here goes.

I am perfectly fine with ad banners and the like. They may not be pretty in general, but bandwidth is not free.

I would like to comment however, that all the ads I see here are for imvu, and they are only barely safe for work. For that matter, some of them cross that line in most work places policy. :P And to be honest, the text portion of the imvu ads are often worse than the pictures.

I like to access the wiki from work on occasion to plan things out for when I am playing at home, or just to contribute in general. I am just not sure how to explain to my co-workers, or my boss for that matter, when they walk by why there are somewhat clothed cartoon characters mimicking sex acts on the computer screen. >:P Not sure if "It's just an ad banner!" is a good excuse or not. ^^;; Burlingk 01:05, 8 July 2010 (UTC)


Is there currently support for references/footnotes like mediaWiki has? If not, what's the estimated for release for when they'll be added? -- Khym Chanur 06:22, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Bug: Can't remove 40d pages from watchlist[edit]

I have several 40d pages on my watchlist. When I go to the "edit watchlist" page and select them for removal it tells me that they're removed, but they aren't. Also, the list indicates that they're non-existent pages (red links) even though they do exist. Trying to remove them by editing the raw watchlist doesn't work either. -- Khym Chanur 01:10, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Do a shift+refresh on the watchlist page - make sure your browser isn't caching the results. --Quietust 01:19, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
Tried that, same result. -- Khym Chanur 01:11, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Google +1 buttons on non-article pages[edit]

The Google "+1 button" is showing up on special pages, history pages, when editing an article, and so on. It should only be showing up on articles proper. -- Khym Chanur 08:12, 13 June 2011 (UTC)


I hate bumping a very old topic like this(even though this is a wiki), but is this still going on? Magmawiki.df doesnt seem to exist, and the last forum and wiki messages about it were a few years ago(probably), and the last contribution on github was also a year ago, and theres a message saying "Note: we decided to rebuild this from scratch" on the github repo main folder page...
