Embed a video?

Hi everyone -


I would like to embed movies on my wiki, and I couldn't find any information in the help pages -- what are the options, if any?  Thanks!

Best, Chris

movies could also be shown by transclusion syntax

{{attachment:movie.mpg}}

Re: Embed a video?

Thanks!  Although I must say, I didn't have much luck with
transclusion.  Maybe it was just my video file, but the embedded video
was the wrong size and did not playback correctly in Firefox or
Safari.  I ended up using the YouTube approach, which worked like a
charm (although I would have preferred to avoid flash).

Best, Chris

Title Search Problem, 1.9.2

Using MoinMoin 1.9.2 & Xapian and having a problem with searches. When we were using MoinMoin 1.5.x my users created lots of pages with underscores in the page name. We converted to 1.9.2 and now they are complaining about searches not finding pages. When doing a title search on a word or phrase within a page name, it does not find “matching” pages. For example, a title search for "yield curves" or even a title search for “yield_curves" will not find a page titled "SandP_Invest_Yield_Curves".  I guess I could have changed underscores to spaces during the conversion, but it is too late now.

 

It appears to me that Xapian indexes the entire phrase instead of the four words that make up the phrase. If the page had been named "SandP Invtools Yield Curves" or even "SandP InvtoolsYieldCurves" then the search term would be able to find it. I notice that the MoinMoin web site does not exhibit the same behavior. It searches the way I want our wiki to be able to search. So there’s hope.

 

I looked in the 1.9.3 change list and can find no explanation for the difference between search or indexing in 1.9.2 and 1.9.3. Is this a setting issue? Or is there a change in 1.9.3 that will solve my problem? We are using Xapian 1.0.15 with stemming enabled. Apache running on Ubuntu server. Python 2.6.4rc2.

Well, back then, moin mapped blank to underscore. Initially we thought
that copying this idea from mediawiki was a good idea, but soon later we
found it was not.

That's likely because the tokenizer splits on blanks and on CamelCase
lower-upper transitions, but not on underscores.

Yeah.

It simply doesn't know that these are four words.

Hmm, strange. How did you test that? I did a quick test and it didn't
find a single word if the title was made of words connected with
underscores.

I don't think it is a configuration issue.

I am currently trying to extend the tests with the underscore issue and
fix the code, so the tests don't fail.

How to import existing Moin content into new Moin server?

I am completely new to MoinMoin but I have been given the task of setting up a 
new MoinMoin wiki using content from an existing MoinMoin server. I've 
succeeded in getting MoinMoin 1.92 up & running on a FreeBSD system using 
lighttpd and the fastCGI server and I've been sent a tar archive from the old 
server of the existing MoinMoin content to be served but I can't get the wiki 
to display this content.

The archive contains a series of directories under which there are 
subdirectories named 'cache' and 'revisions' plus two files called 'current' 
and 'edit-log'. I've moved these into ../data/pages as I gues this is the right 
place for them but I can only access folders like 'Recent Changes', 'Find 
Page', etc and not the ones I have added from the archive.

What do I need to do it get these additional pages to show?

Andy
