    Danish :)

    Hello again Maschine,

    That was a quick response ... I'd test it right away - is there any way I can test it now, or do I have to wait for the next SVN?

    I guess many Danish articles uses "special" characters "æ", "ø" and "å" - much like the German eq. "ü" and "ö".

    Regards,
    Henrik

    Hey Henrik,

    I just started a new public build, so if you use "02-23-2007--16-33-Rev13072" that should have the changes included.

    Good luck ;)

    offline Wikki

    Hallöchen Maschine,

    yes of course, Wikkipedia rocks! Yor plugin was the missing link between MP and the rest of the world. Unfortunately (?) i'm not one of these 24/7 online nerds and was trying to use your plugin with the offline version of Wikkipedia. It was the version with the ZenoReader (1.02). Usually one starts the ZenoReader as server, and then the browser with the local Wikki link.

    As expected it didn't work. Is there any (easy / simple) way to extend your plugin
    to run the offline Wikki?

    Of course i could use an application starter and run the offline link with Firefox in fullscreen, but with no skin support. This ugly integration would be inacceptable ;-)

    Here my findings.....:
    The url is different:

    org.: <entry mane="url">http://de.wikkipedia.org/wikki/spezial:Export/</entry>
    loc.: <entry mane="url">http://localhost:8080/wikkipedia/-/hauptseite/</entry>

    Maybe the problem would be fixed, if only i knew how the 'Export' and 'Image' labels would be handled. As worst case this is a feature of the online Wikki.

    An article in the ofline version is located as:
    http://localhost:8080/wikkipedia/A/Heidelberg
    (guess the 'A' is for article)

    The regarding image:
    http://localhost:8080/wikkipedia/I/Wappen_Heidelberg.png
    (guess the 'I' is for image)

    Got any clue how i could marry your plugin with the offline Wikki?

    Thanks in advance myNerd

    Thanks :D

    No? Your nick tells something else ;)

    No, sorry, I think that's not possible. My plugin heavily depends on the export feature of wikipedia as it parses the there produced xml file. So supporting the offline Wikipedia would mean a total rewrite of the plugin's parsing engine. Sorry, but I think I have to recommend you a 24/7 online flatrate ;)
