Dave "barrd" Barr

IT Manager at peacebuildings.org, looking at WW to see if I can implement this as a (for now) private discussion wiki for a large project we are planning. Very interested in the ability to embed mindmaps and have used FreeMind before.

Hello Brian,
I'd be very interested in finding *any* info on generating mind-maps 'on-the-fly' ala RecentChanges. Googling has not resulted in anything particularly useful, any pointers?
All the best,

Dave, unfortunately mindmaps are one of the few weak points for me, just never had an opportunity to work with them. You might pop in on the #wikka channel on Freenode and see if Marjolein (irc nick: JavaWoman) might have some insights, as she was involved in this part of the project a few years back.

Hello again Brian,
Thank you for the reply. I'll admit straight off I'm a bit "Old School" and have a background mainly with perl. I have however done quite a bit of PHP 'hacking' and implemented a Group ACL for editing as well as a GuestUser account with no privileges. The 'actions' facility with WW has made this relatively easy and I'm impressed with the software overall, well done to your coding team!

Thanks for the heads up on JavaWoman too. Will try and do an IRC session when I get some time to myself ;) Many more miles to code...
