hi, can anyone give an update on when the EL Wiki page will be back up?

I got information from the person who owns el-wiki.net that it was a server crash, but that all data are recovered; however configuration still needs careful checking. Yaka as site admin would look at it this coming weekend. Edited by Elke

Hacked?

Not that I know. Crash and hacked are different things in my book and I have no reason to doubt the word I was given :)

As most know, EL Wiki can now be accessed, but only if you make sure to include "www." at the start of the domain. -> http://www.el-wiki.net

 

 

 

Greasemonkey Users: Gain Access to the Forum

 

The forum remains inaccessible because smf.el-wiki.net has not been set up to show it as it did before. An oversight of whoever's behind the server these days.

 

 

However, the forum exists at http://www.el-wiki.net/forum/(but that's the only page you can see, and it's broken because everything on it points to "smf."

 

The below Greasemonkey script will change all smf.el-wiki.net references to www.el-wiki.net/forum, and works.

 

(I will not provide assistance on what Greasemonkey is or how to use it. Find someone else to do that, or wait until the server admin finally gets everything set up right.)

 

Steps:

1. Add the below GreaseMonkey script.

2. Go to http://www.el-wiki.net- Click the "Forum" link on the left side menu which should take you to www.el-wiki.net/forum/index.cgi . If it doesn't, your script is not set up properly.

3. Logging In: When you enter your username and password, you'll end up going to the "503 error" page we're all familiar with by now. It's okay! Just hit "back" to the previous page where you entered your user/pass, and click to refresh the page. You should see that you're logged in at the top right, and all forums should be visible.

 

I have not tested posting, nor creating a new account if you don't have one. But you'll be able to view the forum with this hack at least.

 

When the server admin does finally get the smf. forum set up correctly so everyone can see it, remember to delete this script from Greasemonkey.

                                          'http://www.el-wiki.net/forum/');

Greasemonkey being for Firefox...

Google Chrome browser users: The script has also been confirmed to work with Tampermonkey. Just install the Tampermonkey extension.

 

 

 

Posting on the el-wiki Forum: Just like the Logging In issue mentioned in Step 3, you'll get a "503" when you click to submit a post in a thread should you try it. However if you "back" up to the thread and reload it, you'll see your post.

 

 

Stil unknown if you can create a new account. Probably not. So this info is for those who already have forum accounts there.

Forums are now back.

 

If you were using the script I posted, delete it.
