First off, a reminder that you don't have to be a member of the Sunbeam City coop or even our Mastodon instance to edit the ! Anybody who wants to contribute is welcome to :sunbeam:

That said, if you're not sure where to start, here are some pages/sections in need of some love:
• The food/farming page needs resources on goats, veganism, cooking, and food preservation wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=
• The technology page needs resources on radio, and can always use more cool software (dat, for instance, isn't represented) wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=
• The energy page currently has no resources on sustainable or DIY energy storage wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=
• If you have a link you think is helpful but don't know where to put it/are too nervous to mess with the formatting, you can drop it on our link dumping ground page wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=

:boost_ok: Please boost! Let's make our wiki the most comprehensive resource on the web :greensun:

Also, the wiki working group on our Loomio is open to anyone, if you want to discuss or call votes on major changes to the wiki!

@socalledunitedstates out of curiosity, why not rewrite the "doku.php?" out of the URLs?

@socalledunitedstates do you need help doing so? if so, let me know whether you are running nginx or apache.

@trwnh Oh I thought you meant I could link them without that. The people in charge of the actual coding would be the tech action squad, there's a list of them on the wiki

@socalledunitedstates ahhh okay, understood now! i'll go bother them about it instead :)

@puffinus_puffinus how about it? who's in charge of the sunbeam city wiki's server configs? it should be trivial to rewrite the "doku.php?id=" out of URLs.

@trwnh
Hi! I can ask people with access to the server. I just work on the wiki admin side of things. How are you expecting to make links look instead?

@puffinus_puffinus basically to take the PHP stuff out of the links. here's an example of my dokuwiki, where i can link to an article directly: wiki.trwnh.com/politics/fascis

@trwnh
Oh neat, okay. Is it pretty straightforward? And will it break links that are currently configured the original way?

@puffinus_puffinus nope! the links will be rewritten by nginx transparently. so for example, this

/doku.php?id=energy

would turn into this

/energy

and loading either link would take you to the same page (displayed as the latter)

@trwnh
It sounds good. Currently, the doku.php bit is a little awkward. I'll get in touch with the people with server access. Are you offering guidance on how it's done?

@puffinus_puffinus It requires two things:

1) edit your server config as such: wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/D

2) have a wiki admin go to the admin panel > configuration settings > advanced > "useRewrite"

@trwnh
Nice, thanks. I'll pass it on. Thanks again for your help!

@puffinus_puffinus for reference, here's what my nginx config looks like. the relevant rules can be copypasted from the arch wiki! mastodon.social/@trwnh/1016373

@socalledunitedstates fwiw this is my nginx config (pic 1), with the indented part being taken directly from the arch wiki if you'd like to copy/paste that into your config: wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/D

@socalledunitedstates i'm interested in sunbeam city. I'm gonna start by reading through the wiki.

@abrahms Do you think instant messaging is the best place for it? I don't know much about it, but my first thought was putting it under the p2p section wiki.sunbeam.city/doku.php?id=
