Modules

(each module is technically an autonomous extension)

name description required extensions
Wikisphere common Common methods required from the various Wikisphere extensions Semantic Mediawiki/PageForms
Wikisphere PageProperties Allows to easily edit display title, language and content model of a page. Provides support for SEO and published/draft state of pages Wikisphere common
Wikisphere PageOwnership Provides support for page ownership and attribution Wikisphere common
Wikisphere Subpages Provides the list of subpages on the navigation panel, a magic word to display subpages of a given page, and a special page to navigate through suppages none
Wikisphere FileInclusion A simple extension to display the content of authorized files within pages SyntaxHighlight (optionally)
Wikisphere PreloadContent (not yet developed) Automatically creates pages upon form submission based on the regular expressions


Configuration

variable possible values description
$wgWikisphereUploadDisableWarnings true/false disables "was-deleted", "duplicate" and "duplicate-archive" warnings on file upload (requires the patches in the file includes/upload/UploadBase.php)
$wgWikisphereUploadUnderCurrentPage true/false uploads images under the current page. E.g. A picture named "cover.png" will be uploaded in the path Book name/cover.png rather than without any path (as in standard WIKIs). It allows the use of generic name for pictures, which are by contrast characterized by their path. (requires the patches described here). This feature is currently used with a patched version of MsUpload and PageForms, input with "uploadable" parameter and $wgPageFormsSimpleUpload set to true, and it works also with the "one-step process" using page name formulas.
$wgWikisphereAllowCreationRegularPages true/false if the extension Wikisphere PageOwnership is installed, regular users cannot create pages outside their owned pages. Setting this variable to true in combination with $wgWikisphereHandleDraftState set to "new" or "all" lets regulars users to create any page, at the same time leaving to moderators the power to publish them when appropriate
$wgWikisphereCreateOwnedPageRealName true/false if the extension Wikisphere PageOwnership is installed, automatically creates an owned page corresponding to the user's real name as soon as an user signs in
$wgWikisphereCreateOwnedPageTimestamp true/false if the extension Wikisphere PageOwnership is installed, automatically creates an owned page corresponding to the timestamp of the user's account creation as soon as an user signs in
$wgWikispherePostOnWikisphere true/false posts the semantic content on the global wikisphere.org database (front-end)
$wgWikisphereHandleDraftState none, new, all, owned requires the extension Wikisphere PageProperties. If set to "none" the pages don't need to be explicitly published through the page Properties (reachable from the dropdown of page actions, see picture ...) to be accessible to everybody. If set to "new" only new pages need to be explicitly published to be accessible to everybody. If set to "owned" only owned pages and sub-pages need to be published to be accessible to everybody or to be posted on the global wikisphere.org database (front-end)


Magic Words / Parser functions

wikisphere_userpages {{#wikisphere_userpages: }} prints the list of pages owned by the logged-in user (to be used in forms, in order to create new pages under pages owned by the creator) Wikisphere PageOwnership
wikisphere_subpages {{#wikisphere_subpages: }} prints the list of subpages of a given page Wikisphere Subpages
noparse {{#noparse: <a href="">my link</a>}} can be used to print raw html within the page when $wgRawHtml is disabled Wikisphere common
hostname {{#hostname:}} prints the host name, currently used by Pdf thumbnail to open display the pdf file from the pdf viewer of the browser Wikisphere common
