~-CategoryUserContributions>> This server runs on a custom WikkaWiki engine with a number of //experimental features//.

~-**Skins** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2004-11-24]</span>""--- allows users to //select//, //create//, //edit// and //modify// their own [[Docs:WikkaSkins | custom CSS stylesheet]]. --- Test: TestSkin --- Development pages: MySkin, WikkaSkinSelector, WikkaSkinEditor
~-**Paged comments** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2004-12-12]</span>"" --- allows comments to be paged. The number of comments per page can be set from UserSettings. --- Development page: PagedComments
~-**Menulets** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2004-12-20]</span>"" --- mini-[[Docs:UsingActions | actions]] that will replace in the future menu items. --- Development page & test: WikkaMenulets
~-**User Administration** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-01-04 - updated 2009-11-04]</span>"" --- interface for managing registered users. (20091104) Implemented single-user delete action (fully supported in later versions) --- Test: [admin-only] UserAdminTest --- Development page: UserAdmin --- ""<span style="color:#0A0;font-weight:bold;">Implemented</span>"" as ##adminusers.php## since version
~-**Page Administration** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-01-04 - updated 2008-10-09]</span>""--- interface for managing pages --- Test: [admin-only] PageAdminTest --- Development page: PageAdminAction --- ""<span style="color:#0A0;font-weight:bold;">Implemented</span>"" as ##adminpages.php## since version
~-**Database Information** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-07-08]</span>"" --- simple action to provide information about the structure of the database and tables used--- Test: DbInfo [only admins get actual information but the page is freely accessible] ---Development page: DbInfoAction
~-**Category action** [modified] ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-01-22]</span>""--- a modified category action that by default now only shows the content of category pages (starting with 'Category') and does not show templates except as members of a special templates category (extra parameters allow overriding these defaults but in general this should not be necessary). This results in more "sensible" behavior when the category action is placed on (or included in) a non-category page: the SandBox won't be regarded as a category any more :). Also for output in columns divs are used now instead of a layout table; this also means that the pages are layed out vertically instead of row-by-row, making it easier to scan the output. --- Example: See CategoryDevelopment for the new layout and note that the templates for development pages are no longer listed there (even though they contain a reference to CategoryDevelopment).
~-**System** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-01-23]</span>""--- a new action showing information about the system Wikka is running on.---Development page: WikkaMenulets --- Example on the SysInfo page. --- {{svn}}
~-**Backlinks handler** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-01-28]</span>""--- A simple backlinks handler to display internal links to the current page (usage: ##/backlinks##). --- See BacklinksHandler. --- {{svn}}
~-**Grab code handler** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-02-17]</span>""--- A handler to download code snippets from code blocks inserted in Wikka pages. --- See GrabCodeHandler. --- {{svn}}
~~&With the installation of the Advanced ##""FormOpen()""## method and the [[ImprovedFormatter | Improved Formatter]], the generation of the 'grabcode' form at the end of each code block has been changed to take advantage of the new ##""FormOpen()""## method: all download forms now not only have an id but also a 'grabcode' class that can be used as a hook for proper styling. --JavaWoman ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-06-12]</span>""
~-**Register action** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-02-25]</span>""--- An action for user registration distinct from the current (##usersettings##). --- Development page: RegisterAction --- Test: RegisterActionTest.
~-**RSS action - workaround** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-05-06]</span>""--- A temporary fix for the Onyx-RSS parser used by the RSS action; any (sometimes spurious) errors raised are now simply enclosed in an HTML comment so they are still available if needed but don't clutter up the rendered page. --- Test and code on JwRssTest. --- {{svn}}
~-**Advanced Referrers handling** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-05-13 - updated 2005-07-14]</span>""--- New, advanced referrers handling with searching and filtering as well as an accessible form and results table (and more secure as well). --- Development page: AdvancedReferrersHandler. --- Test by adding ##/referrers## to any page. (Only registered users can view and filter lists, only admins can blacklist domains or remove them from the blacklist.)
~-**Single quotes for action parameters** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-06-08]</span>""--- A small change to the ##Action()## method in ##wikka.php## so that action parameters are recognized enclosed in either single or double quotes. --- Development page: ActionParsQuoting {{svn}}
~-**Advanced ""FormOpen()""** ""<span style="color:#888;font-size:smaller;">[2005-06-12 - updated 2008-10-09]</span>""---Enhanced ##""FormOpen()""## method in ##wikka.php## supporting all types of forms, and using **##""makeId()""##** to generate a unique id for a form. ---Development pages: AdvancedFormOpen and GenerateUniqueId --- {{svn}}Method ""<span style="color:#0A0;font-weight:bold;">Implemented</span>"" since version
