There is plenty of discussion about a WikiPortal
as a way to "join" views across multiple Wiki's. My thought is that the value of a WikiPortal
is as a personalisable view into a single Wiki.
I would like to set up a MyWiki
view into this
wiki. It would allow me several panes:
- Customised recent changes (how old, what fields to show)
- Content filters (what pages have content related to which subjects)
- Category filters (what pages have which categories)
- Author filters (what pages have significant contribution/were started by which authors)
- What else?
I suppose this wouldn't even have to be implemented on the "base" c2.com servers. I would think that it could be cobbled together from a commercial portal package fairly easily.
Would this be useful to anyone else? What other "views" would be valuable? How easy would this be to actually implement? -- BillBarnett
What if you were able to register your interest in specific pages so that Wiki would notify you when they changed? Forward you either a link to the page, or a diff showing what changed?
That would be wonderful! Let me choose link, diff, or copy
of the page!
This would feel nice as a redirect service, i.e: I can create a service that I point at c2.com that filters the recent_changes, or looks for changes on topics. -- PaulSimmons
to see how this is already possible. See how DaveJacoby
already has a "personal wiki portal" to MeatballWiki
at least at http://csociety.ecn.purdue.edu/~jacoby/Portal
. Not difficult. Use http://usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?RichSiteSummary
. Also see http://usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?CategorySyndication
for ideas on copying content, and http://usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?DailyMe
for another similar idea.
Also sounds like great features for a WikiBrowser
