Alex, The RT-Wiki was ported from Wikia to Mediawiki last year. There are still quite a number of rough edges, particularly regarding the formatting of code blocks.
My general feeling with a wiki is that the history is there; if you somehow make it worse, it can always be reverted, and I've never seen anyone complain about corrections to grammar, spelling and clarity. I just added https://rt-wiki.bestpractical.com/wiki/LowHangingFruit, which gives a sed script which can be used to clean up some pretty ugly code blocks using <nowiki> tags, which seem to give mediawiki's code formatting bad indigestion. Copy the wiki text into a file, run the sed script, copy the text back, and view the results. If they look good, save it. --Barton On Fri, Dec 30, 2016 at 5:08 PM, Alex Hall <ah...@autodist.com> wrote: > Hi all, > I've finally created an account on the RT wiki.
