Recent Changes idea

What if on page AllRecentChangesShort add some JS, which will ajax the site in the background, and if some new changes occure, change the favicon of the page making it blink or something? The goal is: if I post something and wait for response, I just open AllRecentChangesShort in browser tab and when new answer will be posted, my tab starts blinking.

Do I need to post my Wordpress2PmWiki converter somewhere?

For one of my projects I made PHP-converter (17KB codebase). What it is doing -- if you have a WordPress website and you want to convert it's database into PmWiki, you can install wp-all-export.1.2.3.zip plugin for Wordpress and make export to CSV. After this my script may be used to convert data into PmWiki pages, including files processing and backlinks processsing. Actually this is CSVtoPmWiki PHP-parser.

Pro: it is real example for those who wants to do something like this for those goals.

Contra:

  • it is not automatical. User can't use it from the box, he must know PHP and read my code and adapt it for his goals;
  • interface and comments are in russian language and I have no time to translate it;
  • for now I have no time to remember and explain how it works, but code is easy to understand.

So, actually I can just put the source code "as is".

Do I need to post it? Where should I post it?

If you don't have the time to document it and support it, don't publish it. :-) Also, there seems to be a Cookbook:WordpressImport. --Petko November 11, 2019, at 07:03 PM

I will find the time, if somebody will really need this. I think it is a good idea to post info about it into Cookbook:WordpressImport:

* [[~Finar]]: I wrote a new script for one of my projects. If you have a WordPress website and you want to convert it's database into PmWiki, you can install ''wp-all-export'' plugin for Wordpress and make export to CSV. After this my script may be used to convert data into PmWiki pages, including uploaded files processing and backlinks processsing. Actually this is CSVtoPmWiki PHP-parser. If you need this script, contact me and I will publish this recipe.
