To-Do list

-> Ideas - svetla prihodnost portala!

Editorial TODO

  • PURGE ERROR - ?action=purge - url + - ok, purge
  • Balast: web resources - PREMISLI! (vsi portali)
  • levi meni RESOURCES - premisli, potrebno prerazporediti!
    • morda v novo, četrto vrstico v zgornjem meniju? potem se poruši Art & Heritage delitev
  • OPISI pos. spiskov kategorij (v povezavi z Overviews) - jesen oz. sproti, ko obdelamo področje v Fortnight packu?

New suggestions by the team & users

  • New categories re space for rehearsals (Jana)


Snoj piše: Uradni naziv našega inštituta je Inštitut za slovenski jezik Frana Ramovša ZRC SAZU, v angleščini Fran Ramovš Institute of the Slovenian Language ZRC SAZU. Povsod vam namreč manjka ZRC SAZU, ki je krovna organizacija več inštitutov. Kratic po dogovoru ne prevajamo v angleščino, kot ste pravilno storili, če pa ju izpišete (kot je to v primeru predstavitve inštituta), ne sme manjkati Znanstvenoraziskovalni center, po angleško Research Centre. Tudi po slovensko brez vejice: Inštitut za slovenski jezik Frana Ramovša ZRC SAZU
  • uredi - slepi linki (groups, collections)
  • premisli: mesto = del imena? pri. festivali (Trbovlje)
  • Routine work & ListRedirects


  • improve functionality of lists
  • create a list for festivals to include Dates and Duration information
  • think about how to get a list of photos of performances, of reproductions of artworks, of a particular artist's oeuvre. does this information need to be put into the project description? for example: dance performance, music concert, etc. or do we just categorise these images as Category:Dance Performance, etc.


  • See also policy (for bands): Perhaps we should re-consider the See also links policy for bands. Seems many do not have obvious links, but could perhaps be linked via similar bands, frequent venues, labels ... perhaps these could be bolded headings so that readers would understand why they are linked.
  • Overviews (history + visitors (figures) + structures + international activity): začasno umaknjeno z menuja. Smiselno urediti in šele nato objaviti. (linki na Cultural Profiles v TALK!)
  • Archives in/of art & culture, produced by NGO sector
  • Artifacts / People / Projects
  • Art related crafts & services - peči, livarne, glasbeni instrumenti
  • New areas:
    • Slovene language
    • Cultural diversity
    • Media (in general)
  • New focuses:
    • cultural policy (politics) - chapters (digitalisation ...)
    • cultural industries (market) - chapters (industrialisation ...)
    • copyright in Slovenia

Good morning!

by Ziga on Jan 28, 2010

  • New page for storing cool ideas
  • more...

Extraction complete

by Ziga on Nov 18, 2009

Imported artifact content into new site. People can start editing now.


by Ziga on Nov 7, 2009

  • discussions about design
  • mapping of old to new categories
  • enabled api.php
  • first version of KBot, a friendly editing droid. It runs perl functions on pages and optionally saves the result back to mediawiki
  • used kbot to lowercase infobox attribute names. Town seems to be broken...
  • some articles were not imported - primer: Bled Municipality, pod See also: Economic and Social Activities Department - pri vsaki občini je ta pod-oddelek kot posebno geslo, ki pa se ni preneslo ... saj ni potrebno (združila jih bom z občinskim geslov - primer Ajdovščina - in jih kar kopiram iz Cultural Profile, a vseeno preveri, zakaj ni bilo preslikave, in če morda še kakšni primeri takole

Extensions from SVN

by Ziga on Oct 22, 2009

  • linked some extensions to their respectiove SVN versions
  • vector is now default skin. CSS is in Vector.css
  • new SVG graphics embedding feature in Common.js
  • trying out UsabilityEnhancement extension testing

New MediaWiki installed

by Ziga on Oct 19, 2009

Fixed command bin/publish to properly upload linked (with bin/mwtool) MediaWiki to the production server. Rsync option --copy-links seems to do just the right thing. It installs a copy of currently linked MW, so everything is conveniently in one nice place on the production server. This supposedly means that one can take the contents of the wiki directory + database and have it work right.

Production server seems to work a bit better now. Still on the lookout for problems, so report if you find any.

MW extensions that are used will need to be linked to their SVN versions, too...

Separating MediaWiki from our customized stuff

by Ziga on Oct 15, 2009

We are still in the process of spearating MediaWiki code from the stuff we added and customized.

  • new command bin/mwtool which attaches user's installation to a (possibly system wide) MediaWiki installation.

This allows us to update MediaWiki directly from SVN. Seems to work on dev server.

Needs more work (bin/publish).

Production MW is currently a bit broken, because DB was updated, but software not yet. Needs more work and testing.

New development server

by Ziga on Oct 14, 2009

Plugin development will go on here so that editorial work on main site can proceed...

Succesful demo

by Ziga on Oct 11, 2009

  • lots of updates...
  • favorable demonstration

More stuff on portals

by Ziga on Sep 25, 2009

  • fixed few sizes, so the video doesn't wrap. great!!! this required patching barindamaged videoflash extension a bit.

More stuff

by Ziga on Sep 23, 2009

Meeting day

by Ziga on Sep 17, 2009

Par idej:

  • prvi korak do "elektronskih razpisov"; dovolj je, da prijavitlji na razpis izjavijo, da so podatki na wikiju tocni.
  • planirani koledar dogodkov za boljse planiranje dogodkov
  • To-Do list & Site news together now

More good stuff...

by Ziga on Sep 16, 2009
