Hi all. I apologise for today's outage of wiki.zope.org and zwiki.org . Things were working ok until about lunchtime.. I and others even were doing a bunch of maintenance. Around noon I packed the zodb (from 3 - 2G). This afternoon I notice zope down and I can't start the zeo client with either

[ZWeb] show_subtopics turned off in zope3 wiki

2006-12-20 Thread Simon Michael
Good day all.. I have turned off the automatic subtopic links which used to appear below the main page content in the zope3 wiki. The wiki content was and is being created to work without them so I think it's better without them, even if it means a little more manual labour maintaining links.

Hi Christian, all Zwiki always tried to keep login effort to a minimum; until now, the lightweight optional username cookie has been enough. (It's no longer optional on wiki.zope.org of course.) There has been talk of moving up to the next level, ie some kind of real authentication and
