Village pump creation

Hello, this place is now created as a standard wiki page that any user can modify. Please post your suggestions, questions or piece of information bellow, by adding a new sub-section (using == xxx == markup). Mathieu 11:17, 3 July 2008 (BST)

You can also use the Post a new message link at the top of this page. Mathieu

Proposal for categories

I've started to categorize existing pages with the following categories:

You can use them (or any other one) by adding [[Category:Category Name]] or [[Category:Category Name|Name displayed in the Category page]] at the end of any wiki page Mathieu 11:17, 3 July 2008 (BST)

Categories were renamed to be coherent and now, only the first word is capitalized.
At any time you can see the list of used categories at Special:Categories. Mathieu 09:31, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Previous latex documentation being imported

Hello, I'm in the process of importing existing latex documentation into this wiki.

While doing so, those documents may not render well (images not uploaded, math formulas not displayed, ...). I'll announce here when I'm finished with the process of tweaking my import process and the resulting pages. Thank you for your patience. Mathieu 11:38, 3 July 2008 (BST)

Uploading ZIP files ?

Dear Sysops, would it be possible to tweak the wiki configuration in such a manner that it become possible to upload zip files (for example, the models used throughout the tutorial) ? Best regards,Mathieu 23:34, 4 July 2008 (BST)

Could you also please consider adding the SVG extension .Mathieu 23:49, 4 July 2008 (BST)

Category for files waiting to be deleted

Hello, in the process of uploading images for the user manual, I uploaded some wrong files. I've then created the To delete category, in order to reference file that can be deleted without prior notification, by a wiki administrator.Mathieu 16:41, 6 July 2008 (BST)

Graph maintenance

In the process of translating the Event-B Mathematical Language to the wiki, I wonder what would be the best way to port graphs to the wiki.

Either we upload them as images, and we describe how to produce such image (i.e. the latex way), or we translate them into another language understand by a mediawiki extension (for example graphviz). Any advice ? Mathieu 16:45, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Proposal for Main Page

A proposal for the Main Page has been done in Talk:Main Page. Mathieu 20:53, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Link within a page

I have a simple question. Is there a way to have a link to a specific place in a document (rather to a document itself)? -- htson 08:56, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you may use Anchors, and reference them by using the [[Page Name#Anchor Name|Displayed text]] syntax.
  • headers automatically become html anchors, which can be linked to.
  • The <a> tag is not allowed in MediaWiki, so we can't do the <a name="link here">, but we can do the "id" html attribute to almost any existing tag. For example, <div id="what_to_link_to">text</div> or <div id="what_to_link_to"/>text.
Hope this helps, Mathieu 09:07, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
I've also added the following templates that may be of some help: Template:Anchor, Template:There and Template:Here (copied for wikipedia). Mathieu 13:33, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
