Hi XWiki users,

I'm speaking regularly about XWiki at JUGs in France (for example I spoke at 2 
JUGs last week: Alpes JUG and Marseille JUG - 
http://massol.myxwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Blog/AlpesMarsJUG2012 ) and I'd like 
to expand my talks abroad to evangelize even more XWiki around the world. Since 
I live in France, Germany and UK are easy access by trains or plane.

So if you know of a JUG that would be interested in a session about XWiki let 
me know!

Thanks a lot

Re: [xwiki-users] Integration of my webapplication with xwiki.

2011-12-02 Thread Andreas Hahn

Hi mohit,

I think I have done something similar a while ago.
Look at http://www.teamsched.com.

The explanatory stuff is hosted on an xwiki that is identified by the
http://www.teamsched.com/docs
part of the url.
The real application based on shept.org (spring, hibernate, e.t.c.) 
(when you press 'Gettings started')

http://www.teamsched.com/app

It works more or less seamless yet the level of integration of both apps 
is a little shaky.

There are no user accounts handed over from one to the other app.
That should be possible but I hesitated to invest the necessary effort 
to figure it out.

If that's what you are looking for I'll try to provide details.

good luck

Andreas

looking for how we can proceed for this. My application is using struts 2.

Another question i have is once i dowload xwiki enterprsise, should i host

Re: [xwiki-users] Crazy-bad security

2011-06-30 Thread Andreas Hahn
Paul,

actually XWiki offers quite some fine grained rights administration.

Go to the XWiki administration page and then to 'rights' administration.
There you should see a couple of 'Prevent unregistered users from ...' 
options.

Prevent unregistered users from viewing pages, regardless of the page or 
space rightsno
Prevent unregistered users from editing pages, regardless of the page or 
space rightsyes
Require unregistered users to solve a captcha when posting a comment on 
a page  yes


(this is from XE 2.6. but I guess that hasn't changed since then ...)

Actually I'd recommend not to overuse the 'rights' stuff and keep it as 
simple as possible.
When you have pages that include other documents hunting for missing 
rights can get tricky ...

Well, I can't speak for releases newer than 2.6 - but for that it was

Maybe you haven't found the 'uregistered users' settings on the users

Re: [xwiki-users] Crazy-bad security

2011-06-30 Thread Andreas Hahn

 Hi Andreas,

 Your site is perfect for illustrating my concerns about the open by
 default configuration of xwiki.

 I was able to register an account (I used my real email, but it could've
 been a fake one), and was able to make a comment on your page here:
 http://shept.org/docs/Shept/Features

 Did you really intend to leave that page open for comments?  I would guess
 not, since you turned off comments on your WebHome page.

 I find it very scary how easy it is to leave doors and windows open.

 I can shut the doors I find open, but I have no way of confirming that I
 have closed all the doors, especially the back doors that I do not know
 about (eg whatever is in the XWiki space)

 cheers
 Paul

Hi Paul,

well you can make a philosophy out of what information should be allowed 
and restricted ...
As for shept.org as an open source project I'm pretty fine with the 
current setup.
I get regular notifications about what's beeing changed and should there 
be some offending stuff there's always the option to delete it.

I'm running other XWiki sites with more restricted rights.
My approach for getting more confidence about security settings was 
studying the server logs and understanding what the robots find out.
Of course you can also do the same before going public with some 
site-copy tool ...

ciao

Re: [xwiki-users] xwiki.defaultweb?

2011-06-01 Thread Andreas Hahn
Hi Stephanie,

that's what I did to replace default Main.WebHome with another space of 
my choice:

in xwiki.cfg set
xwiki.defaultweb=MySpace

then go to your skin directory. If its colibri the path should be 
something like
/var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/xwiki-shept/skins/colibri
(of course a better solution is to copy colibri to another skin dir and 
use the copy -
the process is documented somewhere in the xwiki docs)

In the *.vm's there are unfortunately several hardcoded references to 
'Main.WebHome' that need to be replaced.
I found them with a
grep Main.WebHome *
from a linux command line

In my XEM 2.633065 installation there where 3 occurrences in 2 files:
global.vm and menuview.vm
and replaced all occurrences 'Main.WebHome' with 'MySpace.WebHome'

et voila - your wiki will come up with MySpace and you still have access 
to the Main space - but only if you point an explicit url to it.
you can see it public at http://shept.org

I think that's all there is to it.

enjoy

Re: [xwiki-users] User Interface

2011-05-10 Thread Andreas Hahn
Hi Gerrit,

i can give you a partial anwer to your questions as I have also been 
struggling to adapt look  feel of one of my sites.

I tried as much as possible not to change the code in the VM templates 
as this requires access to the server and makes it harder to document 
all the places and survive a version upgrade.

Basically I've created a page containing a velocity macro that contains 
all the restrictions.
This page needs to be included in all pages where the restrictions shall 
apply.
The restrictions are just css selectors to suppress visibility:

{{velocity}}
#if (!$hasEdit)
{{html clean=false}}
style
   #hierarchy {display:none;}
   #document-title {display:none;}
   #mainmenu .leftmenu {display: none;}
   #contentmenu {display: none;}
/style
{{/html}}
#set ($docextras= [])
#end
{{/velocity}}

No hierarchy, document-title, e.t.c. if you have no editing rights , 
e.g. you are not logged in.
However you need to include the page on all pages where the restricitons 
shall apply:

{{include document=Main.Restrictions/}}

You might have a look at the results at http://shept.org

 Hi,

 I'm looking into 'how to modify parts of the userinterface' of XWiki for a 
 specific site/application
 We would like to achieve this with minimal impact/effort and stick to the 
 colibri-skin as close as possible

 the following interface elements are of interest to us;
 The MENU-Bar's; both on the top of the screen as well as the one on top of a 
 document,
 The Box that contains Comments, Attachments, History and Information
 The top of the document that shows Document navigation hierarchy, the 
 document name or title the last modified and the summary of Comments, 
 Attachments

 With regard to menubar;
 We would like to be able to add, show or hide elements depending on the Role 
 and rights of the user AND the nature of the document
 Role; If user is a guest, author, moderator (typical roles you find in a 
 Content Management System
 Rights; Has Edit Rights
 Document nature; if document is only velocity (like livetables, scripted page 
 etc..) -  maybe this should be managed by rights?

 The Box that...
 Document nature; if a document is scripted we would like to hide the box, so 
 only real content pages should show that box

 The top of a document
 Document nature; If document nature is script; title, last modified by and 
 summary of box makes no sense

 My question is what would be the best place(s) to do these things? What is a 
 good source of information to learn about these elements and best practises 
 to learn to modify them
 (which API functions do work on these elements)
 The VM template menuview seems to contain the structure of the menubars; is 
 this the place to influence the behaviour
 It also contains #xwikitopmenuentrystart, #submenuitem etc.. where are these 
 things defined (and/or documented)?

 Quoting Kevin P. Footekpfo...@iup.edu:

 Stephanie -

 I use mod_jk for other reasons.. but mod_proxy_ajp is similar.. there is no
 reason why this should not work ..

 Make some changes though..

 In your httpd conf where you have your virtual host defined

 change ServerName to the full address

 ServerName https://www.my-domain.de

 Dont proxy to tomcat via http... use tomcat in ajp mode ..
 disable port :8080 and server xwiki over :8009 only to local host via
 yourtomcat location/conf/server.xml file. (usually all you need to do
 is comment the 8080 stuff and uncomment the 8009.

 your proxy string will look something like this then..

 ProxyPass /xwikiv2 ajp://localhost:8009/xwiki instance

Re: [xwiki-users] Show-Hide Text Content

Hi Wouter,

mmm I think you need to use the {{html}} macro instead of {{script}}
And - if you plan to switch multiple boxes individually you should 
replace occurrences of  DIV ID with idOfBox1 e.t.c.

or you might do it with inline styles and groups so you can avoid 
cluttering your page with html:

(% id=woutersId class=hidden %)(((
Another box that gets hidden when clicked below
)))

(% onclick=toggleClass($('woutersId'), 'hidden') %)(((
[[Show/Hide the other box#]]
)))

Re: [xwiki-users] Changing the link behind the logo

Hi Wouter,

maybe there are other ways but that's how I've done it:

Search in global.vm for the line:

a href=$!xwiki.getURL('Main.WebHome') title=Home rel=home

and replace 'Main.WebHome' with 'YourSpace.WebHome'

Other option might be to leave global.vm as it is
and redirect from Main.WebHome to your location.
You'd need to insert this code on top of 'Main.WebHome':

{{velocity}}
#if (!$hasEdit)
 $response.sendRedirect($xwiki.getURL(YourSpace.WebHome))
#end
{{/velocity}}

 I don't know what the problem is but do you have the same issue with XE 2.7.1 
 or XE 3.0M3? (would be good to know if there's something to fix)

 Thanks
 -Vincent

 PS: Note that the strategy for xwiki developers is to support only the last 2 
 versions (ie 2.7.x and 3.0 as of now).
 See http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/Support (I've just added the 
 info box)
 That said, you may be lucky and find someone to help you with your specific 
 problem on a 2.3M1 release.

I understand that. However in that instance I did some changes to the 
*.cfg and thus I hoped to avoid trouble by postponing the migration ...

thanks

[xwiki-users] CSS customization and themes

2011-03-23 Thread Andreas Hahn
Hi again,

in my ongoing efforts in customizing the appearance of the pages of my 
wiki I've followed the steps of the skin extension tutorial:
http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/DevGuide/SkinExtensionsTutorial

I've created a StyleSheetExtension and selected 'Use this extension' 
'Always on the wiki' and it works as expected.

However I've started to replace fix color settings by references to the 
themes settings
e.g. $theme.borderColor ... $theme.titleColor
and also I've checked 'Parse content' 'Yes' and disabled caching this 
doesn't work.
Velocity statements seem not to be processed or I am referring to 
invalid property names.
(I have been trying the ones from /templates/colorThemeInit.vm)

What am I doing wrong here ?

In the example the page is laoded on demand with
$xwiki.jsx.use(XWiki.MyFirstStylesheetExtension)

so I would assume there should be a document named 
MyFirstStylesheetExtension in XWiki space (or maybe some other space).
Thats not the case for my own instance of 
XWiki.MyFirstStylesheetExtension that I've added.
Shouldn't I be able to find the instance as a document somewhere in the 
spaces ?

Thanks for your support

 Hello,

 You can try including the colorThemeInit template at the beginning of
 your style sheet extension:
 #template('colorThemeInit.vm')

 Hope this helps,

Re: [xwiki-users] Drop mailing lists in favor of a forum software

 Well, stackoverflow.com is one global site for all questions, it's not a tool 
 you can install or host.

 It's part of stackexchange which is list of QA sites.

 FYI, I've contacted the guys just to check what is the process to get such a 
 site and here's their answer:

 
 All of our sites are created through a process we call Area 51. It is the 
 staging area to propose Stack Exchange sites to the community and, if it 
 gains enough support, we create the site. Stack Exchange sites can only be 
 created via the democratic, community-driven process at Area 51. You can read 
 more about that process here: http://area51.stackexchange.com/faq.
 

 Thanks
 -Vincent


Vincent et all,

did you notice at Area 51 there is a wiki QA site proposal in 
commitment phase ?
I thought it won't hurt to commit over there although there a quite some 
votes missing for that site getting created ...
Might be a bit too general though ...

 Amass enough reputation points and Area 51 grant you additional privileges:

I like that too but I think the most compelling factor (about 
stackoverflow) is that its pretty simple to identify the most important 
information without too much reading and searching. Provided there are 
enough answers at all the reputation score helps identifying the best 
answers.  And with the  positive browsing experience as a user people 
might be encouraged to help others too. I guess there are quite a few 
active advisors that escape their routine jobs this way and share their 
knowledge on some particular topic.

 I'm not sure how to read your last 2 paragraphs.

 Just note that fro my POV there's no you and me here. There's only a 
 global community and you're part of it. That said at some point some people 
 are going to need to work to make it happen, this is where the distinction 
 will happen. How far are you willing to help? Maybe a first step would be 
 that you help find either a forum software that fits the bill or a hosted 
 service that would work for us.

  From the people who answered so far my feeling is that:
 * people seem to agree in general that at least for users a forum would be 
 nicer
 * since xwiki committers provide a substantial amount of answers to the user 
 list as of today it would be nice that they can continue to have the 
 information coming to me

For my own FOSS project I'm hoping to start soon - I'll be going with 
http://stackoverflow.com. Providing support means checking the site for 
tagged questions a couple of times a day. It's just one mouse click. For 
me it makes no real difference in getting mails or checking a forum as 
long as you have a one-click list of open topics.

Gathering all the information about all possible options and criteria 
can get very time consuming so I think we should try to rule out 
something first.

Forums that are operated by other providers (getsatisfaction, 
stackoverflow, ...) might
* be discontinued without warning (see jive)
* change their policy later (no more free forums)
* not expose user mail addresses and forum content (or might change that 
policy) so you're locked in.
* not be as flexible as own forums if you want to change something (add 
category, ...)

OTOH operating an own forum
* requires admin efforts (must be maintained and updated, backups, ...)
* may not be as publicly visible as that of other providers (because of 
their advertisements ...)
* may not be as innovative as special forum operators ('awarding for 
active participants', ...)

In addition there are concerns valid for both:
* Is it important to somehow import the existing mail archive ?

So IMO this is the first decision - is it ok to rely on somebody else ?
and then decide which one.

I'd be ok to spend time on it once its clear which way to go.
However - as for me - nothing will happen fast as beside of my daily 
work I already have a side project so this is kind of 
side-project-side-project.

Now for getsatisfaction - I don't know anything about it except that 
what can be found on their site.
They don't seem to offer free accounts for open source. I've also seen 
no indication you can get mail alerts for new contributions.

So how do we approach this ?

bye
Andreas

 My personal POV is indeed that I'd like a forum for both the participation 
 part (ie awarding status/points to active participants to surface them) and 
 the categorization part but indeed I don't see myself going to the forum so 
 it has to come to me. I think this is easy to achieve since on forums like 
 getsatisfaction you can subscribe to the whole forum and thus receive all 
 posts. What would be even better is if I could post or reply by replying to 
 the mail.

 Now back to getsatisfaction I think before we could use it we'd need to check:
 * are there any limitations for free open source forums? What's their 
 position on open source?
 * how can we get all the posts in a neutral and standard format should we 
 want to move to another tool later on?

 Thanks

[xwiki-users] Off-topic: Xwiki and VMs

2011-03-10 Thread Andreas Hahn
Hi Johannes, everyone,

actually this is sort of repsonse to Johannes @jstoldt contribution here
http://xwiki.475771.n2.nabble.com/Back-to-the-future-of-XWiki-tt6084764.html
regarding VM's and it is off-topic in either dev and user.

Johannes, why not drill deeper into this VM stuff ?
If you have spare time leftover and want to contribute -
why not be the first one to create an Amazon EC2 xwiki image ?

For newbies there are free Amazon EC2 accounts:
http://aws.amazon.com/de/free/

When creating a VM I'd check for an Ubuntu Ready-to-go image - there are 
several hanging around.
Check the Ubuntu website for a recommendation.
Of course Linux background is beneficial - might be mandatory.
However with Ubuntu many installations are pretty straight forward and 
well documented -
installation of database (postgres ?) - webserver (tomcat ?) and an 
XWiki .war should be straightforward.

When you're are done and all is running fine you can make a template of 
it for others to use.

I'd be interested in a report.
I'd love to do it but I'm lacking time now ...

As here is no real forum for this we might continue correspondence in 
another place.

WDYT ?

 Best would be a solution to create them using maven. We should check

I see. But this approach doesn't help users for the migration of their

And you are moving huge data (AMIs) around 10+GB i guess. So why not go

 Hi everyone,

 First of all, I agree with Ludovic and Vincent, a new VM should be created
 every time a new version is out. It obviously is a lot of data that needs to
 be stored but the problem with not having an up to date VM is that people
 who just want to check out XWiki in a ready to go and possibly production
 ready environment most likely do not want to bother with setting up the VM
 and immediately having to upgrade the XWiki instance before they can try the
 latest version.

 Anyway, either I did not make myself clear or you missed the notion that I
 am not really a huge fan of VMs. On the one hand it can be hard to integrate
 pre-built VMs with a companies IT systems, on the other hand, AFAIK, there
 is no really free VM software that can be used in corporations.
FWIW: http:www.virtualbox.org is truly FOSS easy to deploy and maintain 
on Linux and Windows
- very mature and we're running small farm on it. Highly recommendable. 
Many hosters use XEN (just Linux) however.
 What I had in mind was a package that will provide everything necessary to
 easily create a ready-for-production-use environment including an easy to
 use configuration wizard. I further thought about upgrade packages and
 restructuring the XE documents to ease upgrading.

 Also, I am neither very familiar with VMs nor Linux, so I am probably really
 not the best person for doing this kind of a job.

 Regards,
 Johannes

Re: [xwiki-users] Drop mailing lists in favor of a forum software

2011-03-09 Thread Andreas Hahn
Hi everyone,

as for your morning entertainment I'll tell a little shortstory.

Get yourself a coffee - relax - and a few mins to read and think about it.


Back in 2004  2 Java Developers that were upset about EJBs published a 
book with their thoughts and recommendations about how J2EE software 
developement should be done in their minds. The 2 guys were Rod Johnson 
and Juergen Hoeller, the book was J2EE Development without EJB, and 
they created the spring framework. Right from the beginning they were 
sharing their thoughts with a community that quickly became larger.
I think every Java Developer knows the rest of the story - spring is the 
leading free open source framework used in enterprise java dev and it is 
today a subdivision of VMWare.

Left aside I have liked it more in its earlier days when it was not so 
crowded -
checking the numbers from their forums there are roughly 80.000 members, 
the forum which is run by vBulletin flags 5.500 as active. 
http://forum.springsource.org

The interesting story about that is that there was an impressive flow of 
knowledge from the masterminds to the people that joined in in a way a 
pyramid of knowledge was building up. The senior members trained the 
newbies and the newbies trained the next generation and so on. Some 
members had their own ideas and started subprojects - I remember about 
security - workflow -webservices and toolSuite. Once these subprojects 
got a certain size they became an own module in the spring ecosystem 
with an own forum (and their initiators became employees of springsource 
and later VMWare).

Why am I telling this ?

This apporach feels much more community to me as the XWiki 
community. The Xwiki community seems to be of 2 parts: On one side a 
small group of people developing the code and giving answers. On the 
other side questioners that soon drop out once their problem is solved. 
I wouldn't regard those being part of acommunity - I'd say they are 
requesters - users just having a service request.

It may have to do with the media we are using - mailing lists - which is 
not encouraging to keep a thread active (or easily visible) over a 
longer lifecycle. In the years I've been working on spring based 
projects I have done very rare contributions (requests and answers) to 
the forum - most of the time a solution to my problem could already be 
found in the existing contributions. What irony that Sergiu was the only 
one to remember/find out that this topic had been deeply discussed in 2007 ?

Of course you can't compare a framework like spring to a solution like 
Xwiki and it may be due to the inspiration and charisma of Rod that so 
many people followed his voice and helped to build a community. Although 
he was not as democratic as the XWiki founders - a lot of things weren't 
discussed with the community. In the end it has been to everybodys 
benefit I guess.

Coming back to my topic i cannot imagine how they could have done it 
just with a mailing list.

One final word on the concern that running 2 different systems (a 
mailing list for devs and a forum for users) might be too much of a 
burdon for the poeple maintaining it: As for the example of spring there 
weren't these 2 systems - it was all transparent on the forums. And I'm 
still very much for hoping this pyramid to build up - at least for the 
users stuff - that would be a relief for the devs !

Please think about it and reconsider your votes

still here is my +1 for the forum (which one to be decided in another 
thread)
with a seperate developers list or not

 8) Forums encourage user to user discussions and you will see new users

 9) There should be at least one additional category IMHO: administrators
 10) A forum is more pleasure to read once a topic split into many threads
 11) A forum is beneficial when expecting increasing support requirements
 - some real large scale forums were run by just a few moderators
 12) More people will see what a teriffic job the XWiki team does.

 Here's my +1
 I have some good news for you: we already have a forum! :)
Actually i wasn't aware that there is already an integration with the 
dev page.
I might not have written my proposal if I were. But shouldn't the forums 
be mentioned / linked in a more prominent place on the homepage ?

However as I wrote - the objective was  to promote the XWiki community 
discussions to a broader audience as part of a strategy to make XWiki 
aware to more users that don't already subscribe and that my not already 
be aware of XWiki.org. I have no numbers at hand - its just my feelings 
- that indexing of markmail and nabble to google compares badly to other 
forum software.
But so what - except for the ugly reading of large threads and the 
meaningless statistics of a threads view count because of the many 
different access methods -
there is not that much left over I guess.
 See http://dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Community/MailingLists
 And more specifically:
 http://dev.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Community/Forum

 Now if this forum doesn't fit your needs could you explain what requirements 
 you'd have for a forum and which solution you'd pick?
 I personally liked jive forums but it doesn't exist anymore (it's folded into 
 a full collaboration suite now).

I have a personal favorite - that is stackoverflow.com.
Its fun to read - encourages exploration - there are numerous 
indications for the relevance of a contribution.
I've been pointed to by google a couple of times and for many purposes 
it became my primary forum website.
Many people there that are seeking advice a la 'whats the best tool to ...'

However its a developers forum and from a project owner perspective 
I'd hesitate to recommend it as a support forum.
Its backed by VC and soon they will need to make money one way or the other.
OTOH the tags 'wiki' and 'collaborative' are somehow underrepresented ...

 This was thoroughly discussed four years ago, and the conclusion was
 against installing a specific forum, and stick with Nabble as a
 forum-like view of the mailing list activity:
 http://markmail.org/thread/gbdnyb7jbh4ha5ja
 Right I had forgotten about this discussion :)

 I do remember another one though (earlier than the one you pointed) where I 
 was the one wanting a forum as a way to get more participation.

 What I'd really like to have that we don't currently have is a way to more 
 visibly see who's participating more and thus encourage participation. A lot 
 of forum do this by giving points to people who answer questions, then they 
 get a title and a badge based on these points. Then you can list the top 
 contributors.

 That said, thanks to markmail, I think our mailing lists have become a lot 
 more browsable than before and we even get statistics:
 http://xwiki.markmail.org/search/?q=

 At some point in the past I looked at jive because it has this point system 
 and it had the feature to be integrated on top of a mailing list. But since 
 it disappeared I haven't found any other good option that would allow us to 
 keep the list too.

 Now we have a real open question as to whether we want to keep our list AND 
 create a getstatisfaction project for XWiki too (getsatisfaction or another 
 similar tool). So far we've resisted doing this because it means scattering 
 our support and thus reducing the support quality level (we cannot monitor 
 several places easily). There are some guys who post and ask questions about 
 xwiki on developez.com for example (see http://tinyurl.com/4ftdyly) but since 
 we don't answer there I believe people either think xwiki is not well 
 supported or they find their way to the official support location.

 One one hand I'd love to use a tool such as getsatisfaction, OTOH I don't 
 know how we can manage properly both our lists + getsatisfaction.

getsatisfaction looks promising however it's not obvious to me if it's 
good for the job and what's the relationship with Xwiki. However I 
hadn't the time to drill deeper ...
Maybe you can give a pointer or more background information ?

If I were to select a tool my criteria would be:
- installation base, references and development activity
- should be known for good indexing by google although this might be 
hard to prove and may not be that much a feature of the software
- a BIG plus (almost a requirement) would be a migration from the 
existing mailing list history (although no idea how to find that out in 
advance)
- a plus if familiar technology is used

If you are serious about further investigations I'd spend time on it - 
I'd like to hear a clear voice about that.

Once upon a time i found xwiki by wikimatrix.org and now I'd give 
forummatrix.org a try ...

[xwiki-users] Drop mailing lists in favor of a forum software

2011-03-07 Thread Andreas Hahn
Hi everyone,

I'd like to make the proposal to drop the existing mailing lists in 
favor of a forum (bulletin board) software.

The objective is to promote the XWiki community discussions to a broader 
audience.

1) A forum serves like an advertising window as anyone can read the 
contributions without subscription.
2) Anyone can judge the activity by reading the view count.
3) New users can get in touch with the community without being urged to 
subscribe to a mailing list.
4) Many people consider mailing lists as spam and prefer not to subscribe
5) Contributions have a longer visibility and older entries will get 
responses
6) Communication gets more efficient as the same topics won't get 
repeatedly discussed
7) To my experience forums get much better indexed by google as mail 
collectors like Nabble , Markmail, e.t.c.
8) Forums encourage user to user discussions and you will see new users 
taking an active role
9) There should be at least one additional category IMHO: administrators
10) A forum is more pleasure to read once a topic split into many threads
11) A forum is beneficial when expecting increasing support requirements 
- some real large scale forums were run by just a few moderators
12) More people will see what a teriffic job the XWiki team does.

Here's my +1

Andreas

Re: [xwiki-users] Executing Velocity on Multiple Pages

2011-03-02 Thread Andreas Hahn
Hi,

If you don't mind providing the change on the server side then I'd suggest
copy the template 'layoutExtraVars.vm' from the template folder of your 
wiki into your skins folder (if you don't have your own its possibly 
'colibri').
Then copy exactly your code into that - That's all.

If you you don't have access to the server or you don't want to change there
you might also try

#if(!$hasEdit)
   #set ($docextras=[])
#end

but you need to apply this on all of your pages.

There may be differences in rendering depending on the XWiki version though.

Andreas

 Hi all,

 Question:
 Is it possible to execute a velocity code on my entire wiki?

 Background:
 I want to disable comments-attachments-etc for users without editing
 rights, but keep it visible for people with editing rights.
 Thanks to Ricardo I found this code at

 http://www.mailarchive.com/users@xwiki.org/msg13732.html

 #if($hasEdit)
#set ($showcomments=yes)
#set ($showattachments = yes)
#set ($showhistory=yes)
#set ($showinformation = yes)
 #else
#set ($showcomments=no)
#set ($showattachments = no)
#set ($showhistory=no)
#set ($showinformation = no)
 #end

 I put it in a single page and it works perfectly, but I want to use it
 for my entire wiki and obviously do not want to put a velocity script
 in each and every page.

 I hope someone can help me out !

 Thanks in advance,

 Wouter

[xwiki-users] syntax nuances

2011-01-06 Thread Andreas Hahn
Seems I haven't yet understood all the nuances of XWiki syntax:

According to http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/XWikiSyntax

I can have a sized image with [[image:img.png||width=25 height=25]]
I can have an image with a link [[image:img.pnghttp://xwiki.org]]

How can I have a sized image with a link ?
not working:
[[image:img.png||width=25 height=25http://xwiki.org]]
[[image:img.pnghttp://xwiki.org||width=25 height=25]]

not working either (with and without 'px'):

[[image:img.pnghttp://xwiki.org]]

and
(% style=height:25px;width:25px
[[image:img.pnghttp://xwiki.org]]

 So as you can see it does generate aspan.

 Now if you want the params to apply to the img tag you need to pass them as 
 image params:

 which generates:

[xwiki-users] XWiki going out of resources

2011-01-03 Thread Andreas Hahn
Hi XWiki users,

fwiw I just want to share my experiences and observations with XWiki 
instance running out of memory.

I was having a hard time to track this down but in the end I could 
successfully isolate the problem.
For quite some time my XWiki instance was getting unresponsive to 
requests sooner or later.

The Wiki was hosted on a VirtualBox VM and in most cases the VM guest 
was just freezing and needed to be restarted leaving no usable traces in 
the logs. In some cases I even found JVM crash reports so I first 
checked different JVMs and VirtualBox versions (PUEL and OSE licences).

I had no success with this approach and so I moved the XWiki directly to 
a host environment (Ubuntu 10.10). I added Server instrumentation 
(VisualVM) but still the wiki got down after a while. Surprisingly the 
system was hanging although in many cases there was even enough memory 
available (I checked different VM settings up to 4GB).
Finally a VisualVM thread dump showed what happened:
When the robots came visiting my service they query a large number of 
pages and among them was one user-url:
.../XWiki/someUser which ran into an infinite looping condition when 
rendering the page.
I don't know how this could happen but as a result the whole memory was 
consumed and partly released afterwards so it seemed that there is still 
enough space available. Once this happened however the Webserver needed 
to be restarted because it wasn't responsive any more.
Since I have deleted this user account everything is running ok for a 
couple of days now - I still have to move the service back into the 
VirtualBox guest VM.

What puzzles me finally that its possible that one single request can 
kill the service by going into an infinte rendering loop.
I would have thought that at some level there is a depth limit to 
prevent such conditions.

Hope these observations help someone though 

enjoy
Andreas

 Normally, there are recursion checks in different places, like velocity
 macros can be nested to at most 20 levels (100 in 3.0). What would help
 is exporting the user profile as XAR and uploading it somewhere so that
 we can see what's causing this specific problem.

 Ok, thanks for your support offer. I'll see if I can restore the old user 
 profile. I've created a new one with the same name in the meantime.
 Hope these observations help someone though

[xwiki-users] HTML Macro browser dependent ?

2010-05-10 Thread Andreas Hahn
Unless I'm doing something very stupid I'd think the HTML macro shows 
some weird browser dependent behaviour:

{{html}}
div id=header
  a href=/docs/Test/
span class=someClassSomeText/span
  /a
/div
{{/html}}

Works as expected with firefox 3.x / Safari
Doesn't work in IE 7/8 and Chrome.

The {{html}}-embedded code is missing in the page output for these browsers.

When examining the page with Firebug I also noticed that the *listItem* 
example on
http://code.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Macros/HTMLMacro
renders unexpectedly.

Firebug reveals
table
tbody
  ...
  ul class=star
 lilistitem/li
  /ul
  ...
/tbody
/table

Neither tbody nor 'class=star ' are part of the example source so 
this example is either a fake or the macro shows undocumented behaviour.

IMHO the macro should just write its raw output to the page not 
depending on any other circuumstances.

The macro example page and I guess all of
http://code.xwiki.org are looking crippled on IE7 as the content area is 
clipped.

Wiki version is 2.3 M1

 missing a closing

 This situation exists on fresh XWiki installations on all versions (I tried

 different DB (I tried Oracle  HSQLDB  MySQL).

 I started to analyze situation. Interest, but when I use local server
 address (http://localhost:8080/xwiki) - all is ok, problem shows ONLY if I
 connecting through my internet domain name (http://mysite.com/xwiki).

 I started to compare html-generated code and found, that function getURL
 returns different strings! When I addresses through
 http://localhost:8080/xwiki getURL returns /xwiki/bin/view/ColorThemes/ with
 class=wikilink. But when I adresses through my site getURL returns
 http://mysite.com/xwiki/bin/view/Main/SpaceIndex?space=ColorThemes with
 class=wikiexternallink.

 If I put option {{html wiki=false}} - these links are ok, but another
 portions of code (where using wiki-syntax inside of html) started to
 damaged.

 Ok - I can one-by-one for all pages put {{html wiki=false}} and change
 wiki-syntax inside of html for a truly html ... I already did it
 successfully for a Main.Spaces. But pages with same problems quite enough
 ...

 Maybe exists another variant? How to say absolutely for a getURL function to
 returns internal link? Or maybe problem with my site config? Unfortunately,
 site-configuration is not under my control ... My Xwiki server placed inside
 internal local network domain, and exists link between my XWiki-Server and
 address on a external site (which is hosted on another server, another
 network). How this link is configured - I don't no. I only said for
 external-site administrators internal path (http://servername:8080/xwiki) -
 and they did link. If it is problem with external-site address config - I
 need to say something for administrators what need to change, because now
 all looks like that problem is with programming code of XWiki ...

Re: [xwiki-users] Reverse proxy problems

2010-04-15 Thread Andreas Hahn
Gerhard Esterhuizen schrieb:
 Hi,

 I recently deployed XWiki Enterprise behind an Apache HTTP server acting as
 a reverse proxy. This was done in order to map the XWiki web interface into
 our intranet namespace and to perform SSL termination. To get this working,
 I had to resort to a few hacks and workarounds due to the fact that not all
 parts of XWIki Enterprise seem to be friendly towards reverse proxies. A
 workable solution was eventually achieved through config file changes and
 the addition of some Apache URL rewrite rules (e.g. redirect all requests
 for http://foo.com/xwiki/bar; to https://foo.com/xwiki/bar;).

 Today, I had to deploy another XWiki instance behind an Apache HTTP server,
 again for reasons of namespace consolidation and SSL termination. However,
 this time I do not have as much freedom as I had on the previous server and
 are finding myself stuck at this point. Examples of specific issues are that
 URLs of skin resources are served using the HTTP (i.e. insecure) protocol
 and some redirects are generated for the local address instead of the
 proxied address (e.g. login page from unauthorised and default post login
 redirect page).

 I'm not looking for particular solutions to these issues as much as trying
 to establish how likely I am to get this right and whether I'm trying to fit
 a square peg into a round hole. Specific questions as follows:

 1. Did anyone manage to successfully deploy XWiki behind an HTTP reverse
 proxy without resorting to hacks and workarounds ? If so, please share some
 information about the magic configuration. Does the problem, perhaps, lie
 with Apache's reverse proxy module or its interaction with XWiki ?

 2. Is my expectation to have XWiki working behind an HTTP reverse proxy
 misplaced ? If not, and XWiki does intend to support this, are the issues I
 describe above well known or should I report them somewhere ? Also, what can
 I do to help and contribute to such an effort ?

 3. Are these issues due to the platform or the layers above it (e.g. skins
 and apps) ? Does the platform provide a right way that the layers above it
 can use to generate URLs that would always work correctly through a reverse
 proxy ?

 BTW, thanks for a great product!

   Gerhard


   
Hi,

maybe you are interested in my recent posting on short urls. I'v been

Re: [xwiki-users] [Proposal] Improving the User Guide documentation

Please somedbody of the long term addicts should write a book about XWiki.

All important projects do have books and for many people the availbility 
of printed literature
marks the difference between some open source project and an important 
open source project.

Before picking up a new software and spending much time with learning

many people check amazon for the availability of literature.

 Hi,

 After reading all your emails I think the best solution is having both a
 guide for first time users and a complete guide to all XWiki features:

 - The Getting Started page can become the draft included in this email
 - The User Guide could be a TOC of all existing resources as Vincent
 suggested. 

 This way both experienced and unexperienced users are happy: 
 - First time users can discover XWiki one step at a time with the help of
 the Getting Started page
 - Experienced users don't have to look for information through the different
 wikis and can instead go to the User Guide TOC. 

 Smaller guides will be made as suggested in the previous email for the blog,
 wysiwyg, etc. These will be linked from both the Getting Started page and
 the User Guide.

 WDYT?
