    A Wiki Setup for Web Coding

    This is not an advert

    I did create it* and i dont want payment off any kind no sponsors or donations

    This is setup for the users of CF to help others and can be search befor posting in CF

    I would like to ask for permision to use the CF logo in the wiki as the site all ready has links to CF

    http://www.barkersmedia.co.uk/wiki/

    This has just been setup and i would like to see it used i think that it sould be a grate aset to the CF cummunity

    Admins:
    if you think that this post is not allowed please feal free to delete the post but please add some link or information to the wiki i have set this up for a good reason at no cost to any one other then me this was created for the CF community and will be renamed if i get approvel to use the CF logo i am willing to rename it to CF Wiki's as i like the name and i want this to be an aset to the comunity and to the web in the world

    Notes:
    Creating - i setup media Wiki on the Server MediaWiki is the software used by wikipedia.org

    Edit:
    If admins would set this up wiki.codingforums.com to point to my server
    and i will setup a deadicated account on my server to this wiki for free
    this includes full control to the Admins/Moderators of CF

    This dose not meen i will give free accounts willy nilly pls PM me admins

    This sounds like a pretty good idea to me...I (perhaps a little tentatively) second the motion!

    -----------

    Later edit:

    Wait a second. I suppose that CF could have a wiki associated with it...but why create a new one. The idea is that you have already searched the internet through a search engine for your problem, and you come to the forum because your looking for help. There are already javascript wikias out there (albeit not very big ones) but then consider the sheer thousands of javascvript-devoted sites. We don't need another, so i withdraw my support.

    We used to have a blog created by CodingForums but there wasn't enough traffic for it to keep it alive.

    The forum works the same way. You create a thread about your php question, someone posts the solution. Then later if someone has the same question, they can search the forum and find the solution. That is one of the reasons starting a thread with a bad title (e.g. "I need help") will get you an infraction, it makes it harder to read through the search results.

    A wiki and a messageboard have two very different purposes. A wiki is primarily for writing articles about various topics. A message board is primarily for discussion. Both can be considered knowlegbases. The very popular wikipedia already contains a section on PHP. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PHP And i'm sure it contains articles on all the various topics of web development. I don't see how creating one for codingforums would be all that beneficial. It would just be duplicating the efforts done on wikipedia.

    If you are doing a search for the word PHP in our forums then you haven't come here to ask a specific question. These message boards are for just that...asking specific questions on topics and discussing them in detail if need be. If you want to learn about PHP then go to the PHP manual on the PHP site or go to wikipedia where a PHP section already exists. Or google the word PHP. You can still learn plenty in our forums. We also usually include sticky threads at the top of each forum that contains links to various place to learn more about that topic. Then if you have questions about that topic you can create a thread and discuss it.

    well that is what i am sayin but i think that the wiki would be a good addition as i am trying to add data into the wiki so that it starts to become a good knolagebase and i agree with they are differnt but they work togeather verry verry well allowing users to learn and then create witch would create a powerfull users support system that can teach if they then have any questions they can post them onto the forums i have now created the menu system but i am About to create more to allow users to request for new codes to be added to the menus and then i am going to right a guide on how to create a php login system even if this is not suported to the codingforums i would like to say it will stay open if people would like to start populating the wiki please do

    And ignore the fact that there is already a widely used wiki site that contains information on the various web development related topics?

    Or are you trying to say create a wiki oriented towards tutorials on how to create or do specific things within the different areas of web development?
