Wiki Updated

When I brought the Wiki over at the beginning of the year, I didn’t do much with it other than get it setup on the WordPress platform. It had been moved from MediaWiki, which is the same platform that Wikipedia uses. The main issues I had with MediaWiki was having to re-learn their coding every time I went to make an update (which was not that frequently). Since the updates to the content were not that frequent I didn’t want to hassle with trying to move to a new platform. That was until I did  a software update towards the end of last year and discovered the update broke the Wiki. Fortunately, I was able to roll-back to the previous version, but really wasn’t comfortable running out-dated software. When I moved my sites to the new server I also moved the Wiki on to WordPress.

Fast forward about 3-months and I have finally gotten around to doing some spring cleaning on the Wiki. I have made the main page more user friendly now by adding links to the different sections. I also went through and updated the Extensions section, adding several new extensions as well as updating the compatibility as well as the links to the ones already listed. Also replaced ‘Link’ with Add-on Home Page in the listings.

In addition, I have added an entire new section, FAQs. These are the FAQs I have written over the past couple years for Go Firefox! Not all of the FAQs I have written are here as some pertain to the Rich Text (WYSIWYG) Editor that was created by the forum’s Wizard for use on the Delphi Forums platform. I figured most of the information contained in those FAQs would be meaningless to people who don’t use Delphi Forums.

Now that the Wiki is on the WordPress platform I should be able to do updates much for frequently. This is going to hold true if Mozilla does stick to their Roadmap for 2011.
