Migration FAQ

From Xenharmonic Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Why did this wiki move?

Wikispaces is shutting down. RIP Wikispaces.

How can I download a copy of the site?

See the Backups page for information.

I can't log in anymore!

Unfortunately there is no way to migrate the users over from old wiki. If you haven't done so already, please request a new account at Special:RequestAccount.

How can I report bugs?

Please add bugs to the Bugs discussion page. Use the Wikifuture page for discussion regarding improvements.

This wiki page doesn't look right...

The migration from the old wiki has not been perfect.

If you see something that is out of place, feel free to let us know about it, report in the Bugs discussion, or help us clean it up!

Why is this page/file missing?

If you notice any missing pages, please notify one of us, and we will work to restore it.

Don't worry, everything has been backed up! There may simply be a missing redirect, or something else.

Where are the discussion pages?

There should be a tab at the top of each page labeled "Discussion". The discussion from the old wiki has been migrated here.

These "Talk pages" are a convention that Wikipedia (the same folks behind MediaWiki) uses, and they behave like wiki pages. Have a look at the Wikipedia page for more information regarding usage.

Please exercise common sense and decency, and do not edit another user's comments.

Where can I get help with formatting and syntax?

Start here: mediawikiwiki: Help:Formatting

There is also an IRC channel, #mediawiki on freenode.net.

How do I remove the Table of Contents from a page?

Remove the text __FORCETOC__ from the page markdown, if it exists.

Add the text __NOTOC__ anywhere in the page markdown.

How do I insert math into a page?

Put it between <math></math> tags.

For example: <math>f(a) = \frac{1}{2\pi i} \oint\frac{f(z)}{z-a}dz</math>

It's powered by MathJax, so any syntax supported by that engine should work.

How do I embed an audio file?

Upload the file at https://xen.wiki/w/Special:Upload

Add [[File:min7.mp3]] to the page, replacing min7.mp3 with the name of your file.

Use [[Media:min7.mp3]] if you only want to provide a link to the file.

How do I embed a YouTube video?

Put the URL of the video between <youtube></youtube> tags.

For example: <youtube>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3O3H01c2SjE</youtube>

You can also use the ID of the video by itself, which is usually found in the URL.

For example: <youtube>3O3H01c2SjE</youtube>

For further details see: Extension:EmbedVideo - MediaWiki

How do I embed a SoundCloud track?

Put the full URL of the track between <soundcloud></soundcloud> tags.

For example: <soundcloud>https://soundcloud.com/ifex/20110408-16edo-dodecaphonic</soundcloud>
