1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    I've installed MediaWiki but I can't figure out how to do some of the configuration and I really don't feel like learning (learning all the vBulletin / Apache / PHP / HTML / CSS / everything else is plenty for the nerdy section of my brain). If anyone volunteers to help me set it up, please let me know and we can have it hosted on this server, otherwise it will stay on that other server.

    If Kent or someone else with previous experience doesn't have time to help you out, I'll give it my best shot: I am very nerdy. [​IMG]

    this is a great idea. i'm very new to the forum but have seen some very good reviews put up in the fourm on various shirts/tailors etc which i think should defintaely be put in the Wiki under maybe a reviews section. (please don't shoot me if this has been suggested before) [​IMG]

    Go ahead and put them in there, then. That's why it's called a wiki!

    The wiki is now up and running and mostly moved over at http://wiki.styleforum.net . Any help adding info is much appreciated. A good start would be the "HOF Best Posts" thread.

    I'm also trying to decide how to do a FAQ format wiki entry that can list all the most common newb questions and link out to the best threads on those topics. That way hopefully we can consolidate some of the recurring questions as with the slim fit shirt thread. It seems like we should have a "what are this rapper's sunglasses yo" pinned thread as well.

    Big thanks to Jared for doing a bunch of the work moving info over to the new site.

    Also, if anyone knows how to get "pretty URLs" running for real on a subdomain, please contact me. I've tried a few of the methods listed at the MediaWiki site (Short URL) but they are kind of all over the place and some are self contradictory, and none of them worked right.

    And anyone who wants to make a SF looking skin for the Wiki could do that too. It's really generic right now and I don't like any of the default skins.

    Woo! Thanks for making all this possible, j! I just want to put it out there that I'm a bit of a Wikipedia nerd, so that was my style base; but if there's anything you learn on Wikipedia, it's that you don't own your edits, so the SF community should evolve its own style consensus. Be bold.

    I would add pictures of shell v. calf if only I had any idea what I was doing. I thought it'd be as easy as clicking "edit," but none of the tables (??) shows up on the editing screen.

    Hey...

    Are you looking to post things on a wiki site or looking for information sources?

    Although I cannot access J's wiki at wiki.styleforum.net, I am planning to shut down the other one at http://styleforum.pbwiki.com because they are hassling me about upgrading the software version and it is clear that almost no one uses it. If there's any content on there that you want, get it by the end of this week. Just don't download sysdoc's stuff because he will have his legal team sue you.

    I took it down for the moment. It needs an administrator of its own who understands the system, because I don't. For whatever reason I cannot just get it working the way it should.

    All the info is still there though.
