How to fix the broken EL Wiki forum

Recommended Posts

It does not appear we'll get a fix on the server side of EL-Wiki or the forum for it. The "joy" of the person in control of it not actually being a player or caring about it. Ermabwed has tried to get the person to fix what he broke, but in vain obviously.

 

The wiki itself is still kinda-accessible, but the style is broken. That doesn't seem to be fixable.

 

However, with a little script, you can fix the wiki forum ( https://smf.el-wiki.net ) so that it is fully styled and functional. And yes, you can log in.

 

 

To do so, you'll need to install an extension on your browser called Tampermonkey (Greasemonkey should also work). And add a script to it.

 

Tampermonkey is available for multiple browsers including Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Safari, Opera... https://www.tampermonkey.net/

 

Create a new script in Tampermonkey/Greasemonkey and copy/paste the script in the text in this txt file. More details on how to do it are in the linked file.

Yes, it works. Styled and logged in. See? ;)

Burn, I cannot thank you enough for this.  I am a total compuidiot when it comes to dealing with/understanding computers.  However, I try not to let them scare me and with your instructions above I was able to fix the wiki!

 

Thank you for this and all the wonderful work you did/do on the maps and the game :)
