    BIG upgrade coming soon!

    I have purchased a new piece of software called VaultWiki.
    the name already says it.. its a wiki
    but we already have a wiki, so why?

    well, the answer is simple.. its a wiki developed FOR vbulletin, based on mediawiki.
    the vbulletin <-> MediaWiki bridge we have right now, is somewhat unstable (token errors etc) plus unsuported (developers vanished over time)
    as vbulletin is updating its software and so is mediawiki... the bridges we have for user integration and other features are left behind.. often result in very buggy after an upgrade.

    VaultWiki seamless integrates with vbulletin, so we can use vbulletin features all over the wiki, and vice versa.
    Also the wiki pages will have a better meta-tag filling, so pages are better indexed by search engines.
    also wiki pages are seen as "posts" so the search bar can find wiki pages more easier.
    also linking to wiki pages will become easier with new BB code like Main Page

    I am currently testing things and will post some ETA soon.

    seems nice.
    I agree with you, it's better to have full compatible software and software are not lost in a pit by creator.


    PS:
    if you need some help for the installation or for contribution for buy it, ask.

    PS 2 :
    thanks you to take care of our website, i know it takes you some time

    Littlebigupdate

    The conversion is going very slow, had some mediawiki import issues.
    Our wiki is way to advance and complicated
    The good support of VW helped sort out a few things.

    I have now converted the most comon templates, so most pages will load again.
    I still have to work out some things with templates that are using non-mediawiki extensions, like extra parser functions and quite some pages of the D20 SRD are using DPL (dynamic page listing)
    Also i like our functionality of 1 single forums for all wiki discussions.. the new wiki will be setup up with talk pages (discussion tab) ..wel actually, it will see every wiki page as a threat, so discussions are posts in that thread.
    I might want to see if we can pull the two appart like we have now (maybe something for arius to do )

    So i still got a big todo list before we can see some result here, but i am working on it!

    Another TODO bites the dust.. probably one of the biggest on the list.
    a new layout, but that pretty obvious

    hope you all like it!
