Okay, Overhauled the whole base of the website to be based on a wiki/CMS. Everything except the gallery&weblog was replaced to use this.
Hopefully I didn't break stuff either. Now it's time to edit&add more content. And new css work so Anam gets happy.
Some more technical details:
- It is now using ikiWiki
- I do not enjoy the built in editor. (A simple textarea by the looks) but I haven't bothered to test the new wiki editor.
- I really hate all tinyMCE style editors and they aren't really capable of producing Textile or Markdown markup.
- I'm using the git backend for storage.
- The online copy does _not_ have the cgi, nor is there a repo on the server, but I use it as a preprocessor for the homepage to make static html.
- Locally, I run it in full wiki-mode with editing and preview,Â the only difference is that on the server there is a .css addon that hides the editing elements.
- The organization is still chaotic, and will remain so. However, I'm planning a "new" css layout which may take a more traditional approach to things.
- I have lost the timestamps of the era when things were made, this is saddening as I never thought of recording that in the xhtml code.
- The website is stuck on wordpress as I lack a few PHP libraries to make habari work.
- The gallery is in migration from Gallery2 -> Zen Photo.
- I now have working Wordpress\<->Zenphoto integration, Passive from the side of Zen, so I can link images and galleries somewhat more easily.
- The webhost is sometimes horridly slow, this is felt mostly when loading galleries or slow loading sites.
- I need to rework how my CSS files are included for both,Â the main one is abstracted nicely, however the Wordpress themeÂ one should be migrated partially into the main one.
- After that I can move the alternative stylesheet from the wordpress theme into the main as alternative stylesheet there too.
- Also after the CSS cleanout, I can look at theming the Zen gallery with the same style to make them visually coherent.
