This page describes known problems and issues with the Wlug Wiki theme and proposes resolutions for them. In general while we endeavour to make this Wiki work (and look OK) on all browsers and platforms we do have limited resources and time, In cases where trade offs have to be made this site will be optimised to work best on Mozilla Firefox under Linux.
For things we should do to the code (rather than just to the theme), see WlugWikiCustomisations.
InterWiki link prefixes usually clutter up the rendered page. F.ex., every single WikiPedia: link on the wiki is of the form [foo | WikiPedia:foo] because noone wants the damn "WikiPedia:" bit showing up on the rendered page. So the prefix should not show up on the rendered page. Instead this information would just show up as "foo on WikiPedia" in the link's title attribute.
However, there are some prefixes like RFC: which actually should be rendered, and some like Category: where it can go both ways. This could be addressed in two ways:
Any idea if this has been fixed in one of the newer phpwiki releases? We're currently in the process of migrating up to CVS head from the mid-2002 wlug_hacks snapshot that we're currently using. --MattBrown
Content in includepage plugin probably should be a size smaller than the main page -- CraigBox
Backlinks could do to be in a size (far?) smaller than page text, and possibly in some kind of aligned table? -- CraigBox
In IE, when you hover over a link in the backlinks footer section, the side bars disappear. -- CraigBox
See WikiFaq for details on how to override the font-size specified by the wiki's stylesheet.
Someone pointed out that the front page doesn't mention we're a LUG with meetings or where we are. You get this from WaikatoLinuxUsersGroup at the earliest; also, there are more hints in the sidebar, but with Konqueror, he didn't find it on by default.
The sidebar is now shown by default so this information should be very prominent -- MattBrown
Newer gecko rendering engines have a bug rendering the menu tabs along the top of the site. In particular they needlessly wrap the rightmost tab onto the next line. This has been filed upstream as Mozilla Bug #327898
