gimmie wiki!

by on March 2, 2009

Enej Bajgorić created the plugin for republishing MediaWiki (or any HTML) pages within WP.

For those who liked the idea, here are some good news: we are continuing development of this plugin for our culturepedia project.

Here is the functionality in the nutshell;

  • seamlessly integrate wiki pages, categories or searches into WP blogs.
  • works as both shortcode (more here and here) and widget.
  • content can be constantly refreshed (as wiki pages changes) or one-time brought in.
  • the wiki content will be searchable by google (not the case with WikiInc).
  • the wiki pages could be further shared by using embed functionality.

For example, if I want to publish all the pages from ubc wiki that are stored in both culturepedia AND idioms category, I should shortcode something like this:

[gimmiewiki -category URL:http://wiki.ubc.ca category:culturepedia,idioms refresh:yes popups:yes|embed|link]

Or if we end up developing a visual component, it could look like this:

Will get back with more!
