I can't find how to add sub-folders to the top folder.
When I start it up, I get a top foler that contains
a folder called "Information". I'd like to add siblings
to "Information". The Workspace should tell me how to
do this. Surely that is more important information than
how to change the callback cache!
So, where is this documented? If it is not documented,
how do you do it?
It appears to me that the only SmallWiki persistence mechanism
so far is to save the entire image. Is that correct? I'd like
a persistence mechanism a bit more like that of WikiWorks.
Having used WikiWorks for a long time, I'd like to improve upon it.
In particular, file names should be meaningful, and all the versions
of a page should be stored in one file. It should be easy to delete
past history. The file format should make the system very tolerant
of crashes. It should be plain text and easy to edit with any text
wiki.cs.uiuc.edu has 33 wikis on it. Most of them are small, but at
least three of them have several thousand pages apiece. The image
is over 100 meg, since all pages are stored in memory (like SmallWiki).
When the machine pages, I will buy more memory. It gets several hits
a second, all day long. It runs for several months between reboots.
I need a persistence mechanism that can handle this.
Does SmallWiki have support for robot.txt? There needs to be a way to tell
the robots to stay away from history and edit pages. The way I did this in
WikiWorks was to generate a robot.txt file that tells them to stay away.
For every wiki XXX, it puts in lines of the form
This only works because the page name comes AFTER the command. SmallWiki
puts the command after the page name, so you'd have to generate a line for
every command on every page. Or am I missing something?
Suppose I wanted to change the URLs around so that I could prevent robots
from executing actions. Would this be a major change, or easy?
I think I understand about folders. When you create a link,
the system asks whether the new item is a folder, page, etc.
When I select an option, I get a blank page in IE. (I haven't
tried other browsers yet.) Is that correct? It should say
"xxx is a folder" or, better yet, show a blank folder.
Are there any other wikis that do this? I haven't seen it
before. It should be better documented. It isn't in the
"Information/syntax" page, for example. The Information
folder should be a user manual for SmallWiki. I read
smallwiki.pdf quickly, and missed this idea, though it might
very well be in there.

Nope, I've already terminated that process.

OK, I'm testing now with -memory 128m but I thought that the squeak take
memory from the linux dinamically. I mean, I din't hope that a max value
has to be set. I don't know wath is going to happen when 128 would be

I'm experiencing "Space is low" warnings on a squeak image with
smallWiki in several ocasions.
This warning reapears every time and the image has to be shutdown
(some changes are lost).
The smallwiki is running in a red hat 9 on a xp2600+ with 512MB Ram.
The store mechanism is set to nil due to the StoreImage problem in
I *beleive* this is happening only when I'm upload some file.
There is a limit on the file size of the uploads?

Sometimes when I edit a page under IE on Windows, it doesn't display the
saved page. The page save succeeds, but all that is displayed is a blank
page. SmallWiki appears to send the 302 response back, but doesn't
receive the request for the new page. Any ideas?
I'm using the wiki testing to domcument some projects.
I found this problems:
1) Some file extensions seems to be not suported by smallwiki
because when I download them (a .exe and a .tgz) they are sent without
2) The ImageStorage mechanism hangs up the squeak when it tries to
save automatically. I read on archive that in march 2004 this happen to
somebody and it will be fixed.
3) Even putting a storage:nil , after a while the CPU starts to run
100% and looking at the VM process there is a SWImageStore process. When
(manually) terminated that process, the CPU runned normally again
4) Even setting the charset=iso-8859-1 I cannot edit and view
correctly some of the latin alphabet characters.
There is now some patch o fix I missed out?
