Is there a different way to upload files to the committee resources area? I'm trying to upload a couple of word docs and it doesn't seem to want to do it. Do I have to add something extra? steve
It seems to be working fine for me. Two hints:
Cheers Franco - I've now got most uploaded - I think the one i'm having trouble with is because the file size is too big - so i'll zip it at some point and then upload the zipped file. Steve
Upload size limit now increased to 10Mb for all pages within the Committee group. Franco

Get Firefox 2.0 - it has a built in spell checker for web forms and is generally a great browser.

Any one looking to waste some time either during or after their exams could tidy up the Links Of Interest page!

Those of you adding to the Bothys Bagged page, feel free to tidy it up and reorganise it - the layout is a bit outdated referring to last year trips. I have a few Bothies from the last year which I hven't got round to adding to yet. One behind Newtonmore, Culra Bothy, Faindouran Lodge (Cairngorms), Something in Glen Affric and I think maybe some others I've forgotten.

I am trying to put up one of steve's photos from the weekdend and it went a bit wrong, luckily I got it back to what it was. The photo i would like to put up is found through this link. http://sjwilliams.smugmug.com/gallery/2151960/2/111589953. If people would like to add me to msn then tell me stuff about how to work this website and passwords and the like then my email is gurfield at gmail dot com. Gerard

Mr Pres - I would suggest putting a news item top of the page saying something welcoming to people about to join the uni who may have just got their A-level results and be looking around at clubs to join... and alos make sure the About us page says what you want it to. Franco
I would argue for the commitee pages and mailing list links to stay in the sidebar, and put all the past member stuff into one link. I think it is nice on the eye to have three boxes on the sidebar; MPS, Resources and maybe split some off under another? Franco

I've just set up a Pm Wiki 2.08 this week which has some nice features we don't. Might be tricky to upgrade (see http://www.pmwiki.org/PmWiki/UpgradingFromPmWiki1), but we should think about it. I'd be happy to have a go, if I have some time, which might not be until after exams.
There's also some nice cookbook recipes which I might install after we upgrade, and I've got a nicer skin that I've adapted. Unfortunately I can't show it to you for now as it is read password protected --Franco
I did keep it up to date for a while but eventually I decided it was working sufficiently well, sure there are a few bugs but I reckon most people don't notice them. Upgrading is definitely a good idea though simply because there has been a major release. What I suggest is we pick a weekend when we can all devote some time to it and get it done then. We shouldn't try an upgrade if we haven't got enough time to check everything is ok etc. I'll take a backup before we start. Gaff.
Incidentally my main concerns were:
* The skin - its good but a little dodgy in places. I'm not 100% convicned it is compatible with pmwiki2 (or indeed anything! it is a bit hacked in places)
* We have a custom script to handle [#oldnews] on the main page.
I've learnt a lot this past week and would now be able to design a much better and flexible skin, or iron out bugs in this one. You probably wont need the old news thing anyway and pmwiki 2 contains features to do this kind of thing, plus loads of other cool stuff we can make use of. -- Franco
Well I'm sold. Pick a weekend when we're all not too busy and lets go it! --Gaff

The News page needs shortening down. Perhaps we could get a system for archiving. For now, if someone would like to move some stuff to Older News... --Franco
I've upgraded to the latest pmwiki version, 1.0.8. I don't really know if it makes much difference though! --Gaff
I've upgraded to pmwiki 0.6.17, this includes an improved Include: syntax for people who care.
What do people think of having a forum type thing?? It would mean that pages like the Alps Trip page were a lot easier to use and would save a lot of 'junk' type mail on the mailing list. People could simply start a new Topic instead of having a seperate page for it. James.
I've considered forums before, infact we used to have one. The problem is a forum only works well if people check it regularly, also information kind of gets 'lost' in ancient threads and you can never tell what is obsolete and what isn't. Anyway the mailing list is good for everything that a forum can do, after all a forum is a mailing list at the end of the day. --Gaff
For the more technically minded, it appears that http://su.nott.ac.uk/pineapple no longer works, you have to use http://su.nott.ac.uk/~pineapple (NB the extra '~'). I've updated all the changes I think.
Not much point in persisting older stuff section, thats what page history is for!
