I have found at least one wiki page which I would like to edit to fix some typos and formatting, BTRFS with timeshift snapshots on the grub menu. I have also been considering adding another introducing a window manager called dk.
A message was sent to me stating that I had achieved ‘basic’ status, allowing me to edit wiki pages and post multiple images/links to forum posts. Forgive me if I am just not seeing where to do that, but I haven’t been able to figure it out yet. Do I need to contact the article author to make these changes, add a post here, or is there another way to add/edit articles?
Your forum status allows you to edit wiki posts on the forum.
However, discovery is a separate site and you need a separate account to access it.
Thank you very much for your quick reply!
I didn’t know there were wiki posts on the forum. How do I access those? The “wiki” link on the top navigation bar leads to discovery.endeavouros.com.
And how does one create an account to contribute to the pages on discovery.endeavouros.com? There doesn’t seem to be a sign-up page there.
There is no automated process to get a wiki contributor for discovery.
This is no open Wiki, only some long-term trusted users are added with accounts.
You can indeed suggest changes here and i will add them if possible.
I do not think we will add Article for dk, that’s more a think for a wiki thread here on the forum.
you can use this do the changes and send it to me:
BTRFS_with_timeshift_snapshots_on_the_grub_menu–Discovery.odt (433.9 KB)
or post it here.
Thank you for sending that.
Attached are the changes. Will the server automatically compress the images appropriately?

I used the wrong type of hyphen in one of the commands, sorry for the re-upload.

Also, is a Wiki Thread is just something posted in the “Wiki Entry” area?
you can mark a post as wiki so all users can edit it and it can be searched for as such over the forum search…
To show i make this post a wiki.
You can edit it and add something…
i will need to merge this manually… discovery (based on wordpress) will not be able to merge odt documents i bet
That’s super cool!
Is that just a tool for moderators? I can edit the wiki post you just added, but cannot make other posts (including my own) wiki posts.
The red boxes added to your screenshot are nice. Is there a tool you used to add those, or are they drawn manually?
and yes your trustlevel does still not allow you to make posts a wiki i bet…
just merged your changes to the wiki:
That was very fast. Thank you for letting me edit your page!
I bet the message I got just meant I could edit already existing wikis. Actually creating wikis is probably reserved for higher trust levels like you said.
but if you want to set a post a wiki you can ask moderators or me… i can set it if you want to…
May you can do now already ?
Thank you! I’ll be sure to do ask you when I have something ready.
Looks like users need to be level 3 (Regular) before being able to turn their posts into wiki posts:
You will be there soon I bet …
Good night for today
