How do I decide which items show up on the top menu (HomePage :: Categories :: PageIndex :: RecentChanges :: RecentlyCommented :: Login/Register)?

I couldn't find the answer though I tried and tried.. :(

You should edit the value of "navigation_links" in: wakka.config.php,

for instance:

"navigation_links" => "HomePage :: [[SiteMap sitemap]] :: [[UserSettings login/register]]",

Can you include non-wiki pages ? e.g. PHP scripts or other web pages
Is there any documentation on how the actions work. Maybe someone has copies of the original Wakka documentation that they could place here.

is there a way to delete a user account (as admin of course)? without having to edit db tables? (scary)

PsiGnosis, some ideas for a user management tool are discussed here:
The possibility to remove user accounts is one of the features I would like to see implemented in this tool. Perhaps someone has clues on how to do it... DreckFehler? ;-)

Anybody here who likes to makes screenshots for the documentation? Volunteers?

I like - but I don't have time ... to busy hacking right now!

(PHP OO + errorhandling + assertions all combined, and all of them new to me (in PHP, at least); and yes, this will also become part of WikkaMail. No worries, mate! :))

Nils, JW, you're doing a great job with the documentation pages!

Nils, I removed the link to CodeContributions. This page is meant to document features of official Wikka releases. Code contributed by users but not (or not yet) officially included in a Wikka release cannot - by definition - be part of the official documentation ;-)

Um, Dartar, I put the "see also" before
- The many uses of Wikka
- Sites powered by WikkaWiki
Because (I thought we agreed on that) they are NOT part of the documentation

!!! Why are "Wikka Actions" and "Wikka Formatters" for developers EMPTY!?!?!???
Comment by NilsLindenberg

Perhaps because nobody has written that part of the documentation? ;-)

I started working on the Actions description, but it will take some time.

One thing lacking from all the Help and Documentation files - at least I couldn't find it - a way to delete users without having to install any of the add-ons. I'm only learning this stuff now, and I don't want to screw anything up this early in the game.

A feature to delete or ban users is currently not available, a discussion on this topic can be found here:

DarTar, I have 2 admin actions which I'm happy to post, but will do so only with your approval (given the discussions). The first allows the selective deletion of user names from the user table. The second action (which includes another mysql table) has two allows the admin to inactivate a users password (and then re-set it back to the original later if desired), the other function allows a username to be "reserved" (or if reserved, released).

Are they patches/code improvements for the previous modules or different actions? If they qualify as new actions, I'd open a new page for each of them. In both cases, any contribution is welcome, Mike :)

How do I remove my user?

TromboneFreakus, at the moment there is no possibility to delete users or for users to delete their account.

How do I cerate links to the same page? Let's say I have a long page with subtitles. I want to link to a particular subtitle... the HTML equivalent of <a href="wikipagename#subtitle3")See Subtitle 3</a>?

Thank you.

Currently the only way to do this is by using the (beta) anchor action: - we are working on providing support for fragment linking, but this requires some changes in the formatter - see

I too would verry much like to have an anchor option, as I am working on a mandriva faq. I like your wiki verry much (especially the security features with ACL).

Is there an ETA on when this issue is beeing adressed?

I tried the anchoraction, but after finally getting it to work I had multiple instances of menuentries in the header and footer (yes I don't know much about code).
And I didn't really understand how to get it to work. So an anchor button is verry welcome :)

(sorry for my bad english)

I have successfully install Wikka on my web server.
but when i open HomePage (http://myurl/Wikka/HomePage)
it shows only this:
"Page was generated in 0.0116 seconds"

(sorry for my bad english)

Try accessing your page like this:


If that works, there's something up with your rewrite rules/wikka.config.php settings. If not, check to make sure your file perms are set to be readable by the user under which your web server is running.

http://myurl/Wikka/wikka.php?wakka=HomePage This way too does not work.

#chmod -R ugo+r Wikka/
All the same shows only this text: "Page was generated in X seconds"

(sorry for my bad english)

Gustav, the only way I was able to duplicate this was by removing the "execute" permissions from the formatters, handlers, and actions directories. The "Page was generated..." text is created in wikka.php, which might be why that's the only thing you're seeing. Make sure execute perms are set for all of the directories. I probably wouldn't do a "chmod -R ugo+x" because that will pick up your regular files as well. I prefer to use "find":

find Wikka/ -type d -exec chmod ugo+x {} \;

BTW, your English is fine, no need to apologize :)
