You're welcome.
I'm planning on adding some Vic tool pages.

First I'll see how it all works, then I'll type some stuff and see how it goes from there.

Alright. Grant set me up with an editor account. I may be asking a bunch of questions here and in PMs. I hope that is OK.

Thank you, Poncho!  :cheers:

After a while, I did figure out the gallery and template. I started on the Gerber Grappler(created page and added photos, but no info yet), but had to hang it up for the day. Felt like throwing my laptop across the room.  :bnghd:

I know it is easier once you do it a time or two, but I sure wish the tikiwiki used a GUI. I haven't messed with text code since trade school.  :facepalm:

We have often looked at the idea of swapping to something like MediaWiki (the same software used by Wikipedia) but it seems like all of the information import software available is for people switching from MediaWiki to TikiWiki, which leads me to believe that TikiWiki is far superior.  Which came as a great shock, because pretty well anyone who uses TikiWiki hates it, so I wonder just how bad MediaWiki must be!   :ahhh

In fact, TikiWiki has been a recent (and constant) topic of discussion behind the scenes, and was described thusly:

Quote
Tikiwiki feels more like a bunch of different brand building blocks that sort of fit together, but aren't very structurally sound

Thank you for the information, Grant!

I have a small grasp of how to do it. But, after seeing how great of a job the major contributors have done, I am writing the info up on my PC before going back for the edit.
The template is a best case scenario for the tikiwiki it seems. It may be that tikiwiki discourages just anyone from messing about in there.
Do you know of any free(or cheap) software programs that would allow offline previewing of the coding, Grant?

I do not, but then, as I barely know the difference between a server ad a Cheetoh, I may not be the best person to ask.   :facepalm:
