Creating a wiki format with Flexifilter

Flexifilter currently ships with a wiki format, but let's step through it so you can understand how it works.

  1. Go to the flexifilter administration area by clicking Administer -> Site Building -> Flexifilters, and click 'Add new flexifilter'.
  2. Set the label to 'Wiki'.
  3. Set the description to 'A flexifilter for a wiki'.
  4. Prepend with </nowiki>.
  5. Append with <nowiki>
  6. Do a chunk grab on </nowiki> and <nowiki>.
  7. Add several pattern-based text replace components:
  8. Replace ''' (three single dashes) with alternating <strong> and </strong>.
  9. Replace '' (two single dashes) with alternating <em> and </em>.
  10. Replace ==== (four equals signs) with alternating <h4> and </h4>
  11. Replace === (three equals signs) with alternating <h3> and </h3>
  12. Replace == (two equals signs) with alternating <h2> and </h2>
  13. Create a chunk grabber on [[ and ]].
  14. Add an IF component within the chunk grabber.
  15. Add the condition "text contains" with the parameter |.
  16. As subcomponents of this IF statement, prepend with <a href="/drupalwikipath/
  17. String replace | with ">.
  18. Append </a>.

Idea : integrate xmlrpc to menu system


Drupal menu system has nice advanced features. Why not integrate xmlrpc with menu ?

We need to create a menu item type XMLRPC_MENU_ITEM for example. The menu item will have the same features as other menu items. But the page callback will automatically call xmlrpc callback function. User can get a lot of xmlrpc servers then .. like q?node/users/12/xmlrpc/ will show that users' xmlrpc methods and allow others to call them .. I do not know if it is needed :-P .

May be it can reuse menu code !!

Modules, Install v 5 or 6, beginner skins, mysql v posgresql

Hi folks --

I am planning an online publication, and am quite new to php. I had started off setting up the site using b2evolution but even this early in the test/learn/plan/prep phase I have already outgrown it. I needed a more complex taxonomy and, well, when it comes to taxonomy it seems that Drupal rocks.


While I wish, further down the road, to have a sophisticated site with "Sections" like a newspaper, a sort of recursive taxonomy, multiple authors, at first I just wish to bang out some blog entries. Does Drupal do this just by installing the core or do i need to install modules as well? I am not trying to be lazy by asking -- i've already spent hours just reading docs on this site and have found descriptions of what various modules do, but I still don't understand what "plain vanilla" core Drupal does out-of-the-box (as it were).

So, can I just install Drupal out of the box and start blogging? Also, would I be complicating my life by planning to add other modules later on, i.e., is it necessary or preferable to install them at the same time as Drupal?

QUESTION 2: install 5 or 6?

cannot install drupal 6 rc3 :: undefined functions

I already read comments about this issue but it didnt solve my problem.

It gives an error like "call to undefined function ...." after mysql db info entered. ... can be multiple function names.

I tried to install on root directory and a sub directory with without fresh install, fresh db...

I edited .htaccess with RewriteBase "/" and "/subdir".

Finally installed Drupal 5.7 without any error.

What is the reason of that error on 6.x ?
