GetWiki was first developed by M.R.M. Parrott early in 2004 to “get wiki” content from site to site. At the time, MediaWiki appeared to be a more intuitive and user-friendly application than other Wiki-engines, full of features, actively tested and improved by dedicated developers from around the world. However, this does not...


In Mathematics, a set of symbols is frequently used in mathematical expressions. As mathematicians are familiar with these symbols, they are not explained each time they are used. So, for mathematical novices, the following table lists many common symbols together with their name, pronunciation and related field of Mathematics. Additionally, the third column contains an informal...


Web of WikiWebs - GetWiki uses custom external links to remote sites you can use, and formerly allowed links in the form of [[Community:GetWiki]], instead of pasting the entire url into your text. These links, some stored in the database and sometimes called “interwiki” links, are a wonderful invention, if needed by the community. On GetWiki links like the above...


Message Functions - In GetWiki, to create a new custom message, simply create a page in the GetWiki namespace (as we do not use “MediaWiki”), named “GetWiki:Message” which contains the text of the message. Each message needs a unique name with no special characters. As on this page, we can list custom messages so that readers can find them, or create new ones. There are...


With GetWiki, you can use custom images, thumbnails and thumbnails with caption links to enhance your articles. Below are some examples of image links, as implemented by the latest GetWiki. Keep in mind that now pixel dimensions specified are obeyed, as well as {{image:metaforum.gif}} WikiCreole-style braces (although, the word “image:”, or “Image:”, is...


An “operating system” consists of many utilities, along with a master control program, called the “kernel”. The kernel provides services to start and stop programs, handle the file system and other “low level” tasks most programs on your computer share. Perhaps most importantly, the kernels also schedule access to hardware,...




Help! - GetWiki is a Bloki application, a general discussion forum, and a “metawiki” for philosophical and technical issues. Some contributors will have experiences from other blogs, forums and wikis, and some will not. Here are a few helpful links, and a few questions are answered below. Editing FAQ - do I have to use wiki coding? - No. GetWiki uses, but is not limited by,...


Background - GetWiki allows TeX markup for mathematics and logic formulas. Instead of assuming complicated dependencies and server resources on all GetWiki-based wikis just to generate PNG images, GetWiki translates TeX into simple XHTML markup1, with LaTeX parsing and image rendering available as a deprecated option2. In the future, as browsers become even more XML...


import license notices - As you’ll see, I’ve used the boilerplate added to the bottom of imported pages (using Ontology as an example) as such: notices- some content may have been adapted from the Pseudopedia article, “Ontology” under the GNU Free Documentation License or notices- some content may have been adapted from the...


XHTML Symbols - Below is a quick reference for Logic and Mathematics symbols in XHTML which work on all modern browsers These are intended for logical and mathematical articles, or any page requiring special characters not found in the “edit bar“ Feel free to copy-and-paste (ctrl/cmd-c, ctrl/cmd-v) symbols Logic: ¬ ∧ ∨ ∃...


SOHO is an acronym for “Small Office/Home Office”, a common platform for software development. see also- SOHOdb, an open source business database
