60.71    16 March 2013
7        Added scale to category/locale index maps.
8        Fix several test failures triggered by the stricter
9          Test::HTML::Content (et al) mode used when XML::LibXML is
10          not installed
11        Work around a "No such method textContent" bug in
12          Test::HTML::Content when XML::LibXML is not installed
13        Respect destdir when installing scripts, templates, etc and
14          when initialising SQLite databases
15        Use mkpath to create the custom template directory rather than
16          mkdir, for cases where the parent directory doesn't already
17          exist
190.70    26 August 2012
20        New elements allowed in page content: span, dl, dt, dd (fixes #303).
21        Changed external link formatting; they're now given a class of
22          "external" and the previous hardcoded square brackets are no more.
23          This requires version 0.24 of Wiki::Toolkit::Formatter::UseMod.
24          If you want the old behaviour back, put this in your CSS (with
25          "black" replaced by whatever colour you have your body text in):
26              a.external:before {
27                content: "[";
28                color: black;
29              }
31              a.external:after {
32                content: "]";
33                color: black;
34              }
35        Updated to use version 0.4 of Leaflet (needed for plugins used on a
36          couple of live guides).
37        Added meta descriptions to headers of map and list index pages
38          (fixes #301).
39        Implemented new @INDEX_LIST_NO_PREFIX macro.
410.69    07 July 2012
42        The output of the "show_missing_metadata" action is now alphabetised.
43        There's also now an option to view the results on a map. (#296 & #294).
44        Fixed a JavaScript escaping issue for nodes with apostrophes in names.
460.68    21 May 2012
47        Made sure that maps are centred and zoomed properly even when they only
48          contain one point.
49        Made preferences default to never expiring.
50        Fixed POST bug introduced with whitespace redirection in version 0.66.
520.67    07 May 2012
53        Switched from the Google Maps API to the Leaflet mapping library.
54          To make this work, set use_leaflet = 1 in your wiki.conf, and ensure
55          that div#map_index_canvas is given a non-zero height in your
56          stylesheet (you may also want to style div#map_index_node_list and
57          div#node_map_canvas).  Google Maps support is retained for those
58          who fear change, but is no longer actively maintained.
59        Added support for indexing on category and locale at the same time.
60          As part of this, action=index now uses a new form of parameters, so
61          instead of e.g.
62            action=index;index_type=locale;index_value=holborn
63          you should use
64            action=index;loc=holborn
65          or indeed
66            action=index;cat=pubs;loc=holborn
67          Format params such as format=map work as before.  Old-style URLs
68          will automatically redirect to new-style ones.
69        Added project metadata to Build.PL (#285).
70        Skip Build.PL questions if AUTOMATED_TESTING=1 (#291)
71        Added a basic stylesheet, installed into the static_path directory.
72        Fixed the JSON output for action=index (using a new dependency on
73          Template::Plugin::JSON::Escape).
74        Added JSON output for the preferences page (#293).
75        IP addresses no longer show on recent changes for people without the
76          admin preference set.
77        Website truncation on node display is now a little more intelligent
78          (you can still tweak this by setting website_link_max_chars in
79          your wiki.conf).
80        The preferences page now remembers what page the user got to it from,
81          and sends them back there.
82        Fixed bug with recent changes display when minor edit suppressed (for
83          which we require version 0.80 of Wiki::Toolkit).
84        Renumber tests so we have more room (#297).
85        Fix warnings in tests due to undef values being lower cased (#298).
870.66    12 April 2012
88        All templates now have access to the "username" TT variable.
89        Node name parameters in URLs are now accepted with spaces instead of
90          underscores, to take account of people typing manually - these will
91          redirect (303) to the proper URLs with underscores (#114).
92        Add CSS classes for each category and locale to the "content" div
93          (and hence we now require version 2.24 of Template).
94        Switch to using Geo::Coordinates::OSGB/ITM instead of
95          Geography::NationalGrid (which no longer exists on CPAN).
96        Make sure that whitespace is collapsed in autocreated categories
97          and locales, to avoid creating undeletable pages.
98        Add an template to include a map link in content
99          for autocreated categories and locales (#275).
100        Make sure the show_missing_metadata action skips redirects.
1020.65    28 February 2010

157          change summaries.
158        Ensure that all modules we ship are versioned.

1670.61    4 July 2007
168        Added experimental support for local spam detection modules; see the
169          commit_node method in "perldoc OpenGuides" for details.
170        Added extra "edit this page" link next to the node name; if you don't

172        Removed dependency on Test::MockObject.
173        Remove misleading CSS examples

1930.60    13 May 2007
194        Removed footer search from edit page (shouldn't have been there).
195        Upgraded Module::Build requirement to cope with API change.
196        Added new parameters to action=random - you can now supply category
197          and/or locale to get a random page chosen from that category/locale.
198        To go with this, added a new macro:
199          @RANDOM_PAGE_LINK [[Category Pubs|View a random pub]]
200        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::Feed - HTML equivalent link now works even
201          if your script_name isn't blank.
202        Rewrote the HTML of the edit page to use <div>s rather than tables.
203          Note that you will probably want to provide at least basic styling
204          for these classes.  As part of this, added a new template,
206        Moved node image boxes below phone/address/etc on the edit form, and
207          moved summary field from openguides information section into main
208          section.
209        Made div#maincontent on the edit form wrap the preview view only, not
210          the whole form.
211        Added links to the "revision N" and "Last edited" text in the navbar.
212        Added format => "raw" option to OpenGuides::Search->run to let you get
213          your results back as a hash.
214        Add JavaScript to the Create New Page page so the prefilled
215          "New page name" disappears when you click in the field (it doesn't
216          make anything other than "New page name" diappear).
217        Move node RDF generation from inline to and replace
218          home-grown escaping with encode_entities_numeric from HTML::Entities
219          (technically this is an added dependency, but we already require
220          the package it comes in, via Wiki::Toolkit::Formatter::UseMod).
221        Move random page functionality from wiki.cgi into and
222          add some tests.
223        Add config options to let admins omit category and/or locale pages
224          from the list of pages that can be returned by the Random Page link.
225        Use full URLs for all links in navbar, so people can INCLUDE
226          in their own scripts.  (May revisit this later using "base href".)
227        Added some stylesheet hooks to; see README.CSS for details.
228        Documented the stylesheet hooks in the admin interface (see README.CSS)
229        Bugfix: uninitialized variable warning in script_url
230        Bugfix: Make sure clean target works
2320.59    25 March 2007
233        Move preview_node() and edit_node() from wiki.cgi into
234        Remove - use instead to reduce
235          duplication.
236        Make sure to always pass the config object into the templates.
237        Add some extra test utilities to OpenGuides::Test
238        Allow Guide admins to control the content of autocreated nodes (#47).
239        Let people add name of copyright holder, licence URL, and info page
240          URL for node images (#179).
241        Add config option to omit recent changes from home page.
242        Split out "modules" from into separate templates navbar_*.tt
243          to make it easier for people to change the order in a custom template
244        Add a new div to wrap the entire body; also, use in
245 instead of copy/paste.
246        Add a new div for the atom/RSS feed links on the recent changes page.
247        Add config option to place content above navbar in HTML.
248        Add config option to suppress inline maps on geotagged nodes.
249        Add support for custom template to add to page <head> (#191).
250        Fix preferences to take notice of users turning off inline Google maps.
251        Add option to include Google Analytics.
252        Fix "Link to this page" on index maps to remember the map type and
253          the thing it's indexing (#190).
254        Write tests for and fix:
255          #48 (Edit conflict page erroneously converts lat/lon to os_x, os_y).
256          #173 (edit conflict form doesn't let you edit everything).
257        Fix:
258          #184 (Build.PL doesn't treat the absence of Config::Tiny gracefully.)
259        Add admin function for reverting changes by a specified user or host.
2610.58    21 December 2006
262        Tidy up some minor bugs in the new features.
263        Add RDF autodiscovery link to nodes' <head> section.
264        Added more data to RDF output
265        Redesign node history view along lines of that used by MediaWiki
266          ( for clarity.
267        Add UPGRADING file which summarises important information for people
268          upgrading.
269        Add an optional new config parameter, http_charset, which will set
270          an explicit charset http header on all responses.
271        Add an optional new config parameter, ping_services, which is a list
272          of services (defined in Wiki::Toolkit::Plugin::Ping) to ping when
273          a node is written. Allows you to ping pingerati etc on changes.
274        Helmert Transforms, so that British National grid users can have
275        accurate Google Maps tie-ins.
276        dbencoding config variable to tell OpenGuides what charset your
277          database encoding is.
278        As a consequence declare the charset correctly in the XML feeds.
279        Other minor UI improvements
280        Redesigned node history view a la MediaWiki for greater clarity.
2830.57    12 September 2006
284        New interfaces:
285        * Admin interface.
286        * Show nodes missing metadata.
287        * Moderate edits (based on Wiki::Toolkit moderation).
288        NOTE: these functions should be considered unstable, and may change
289          over future releases.
291        Lots more Atom and RSS feeds, including for searching.
292        Four new config file options: moderation_requires_password,
293          enable_node_image, enable_common_categories, enable_common_locales
294        Search::InvertedIndex support is deprecated as of this release.
295          Please upgrade to Plucene if you are still using it.
296        Tidy up some template bits
2980.56    14 June 2006
299        Fixed bug introduced in feed formatting where Atom feeds would be
300          produced when asked for RSS and vice versa.
3020.55    13 June 2006
303        Versioned dependency on Wiki::Toolkit to avoid development
304          versions.
305        Support generating feeds of a node's version listing, in addition
306          to feeds of the recent changes. For more information on OpenGuides
307          feeds, see
3090.54_02 8 June 2006
310        Pass the feed_listing (currently just recent_changes) through all
311          the feed related code, rather than assuming it'll only ever be
312          recent changes. Will allow other listings of nodes to be handled
313          in the future.
3150.54_01 16 May 2006
316        Support for Atom feeds for RecentChanges.
317        #118 Use Wiki::Toolkit. NOTE this is a development snapshot and is
318          not suitable for production use. It may eat your data! Tests on
319          development mirrors of live data are highly welcomed; the underlying
320          database schema provided by Wiki::Toolkit has changed and the upgrade
321          process needs some rigorous testing.
3230.54    21 April 2006
324        #112 Fixed website display bug introduced in 0.53.
3260.53    20 April 2006
327        Miscellanous fixes for mod_perl.
328        #42 New "About" screen. Try action=about and action=about;format=rdf.
329        #97 Use "summary" metadata to generate HTML meta descriptions.
330        New OpenGuides::Feed module to handle feed generation (code was
331          previously in OpenGuides::RDF).
332        Generate URIs for locales and contributors in RDF output.
333        #107 Don't display partial http:// URL in preview.
334        #93 Upgrade to new Google Maps API (for smaller javascript download)
335        #103 Fixed empty Category/Locale list bug.
336        #54 Fixed RSS redirection for backwards compatibility.
337        #79 Partial fix to help combat HTML spam
338        #56 Added licence config variables
3400.52    5 March 2006
341        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
342          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
343          to reflect this.
344        Renamed OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
345        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
346        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
347        Fixed missing bracket in
348        Added custom_node template just below main content in
349        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
350          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
351          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
352        Fixed <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
353        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
354        Fixed mod_perl redirect bug.
355        Fixed test failure with 3.16.
356        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
357        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
3590.51    15 November 2005
360        Important changes:
361          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
362            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
363            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
364            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
365            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
366            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
368        New features:
369          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
370            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
371            a blank page.
372          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
373            - Added summary field to RDF as dc:description.
374            - Show node summary in search results.
375          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
376          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
378        RDF bugfixes:
379          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
380          * Added "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
381          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
382          * Fixed URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
383            not the RecentChanges page URL.
385        Search bugfixes:
386          * Fixed bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
387            lat/lon was being used.
388          * Fixed bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
389            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
390            search was being done.
392        Minor improvements:
393          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
394            with spaces.
395          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
396            the old page rather than the editing view.
398        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
399          * Fixed problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
400          * Fixed bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
4020.50    2 October 2005
403        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
4050.49    24 July 2005
406        Added updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
407          a test failure).
4090.48    24 July 2005
410        RDF enhancements:
411          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
412            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
413          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
414            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
415          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
416            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
417          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
418            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
419            applications.
420          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
421            to other nodes.
422          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
423            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
424        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
425        Added "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
426          template
427        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
428          informing you of the fact.
429        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
430          node display.
431        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
432          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
433        Replace <label> tags in with <span
434          class="metadata_label">.
435        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
436          pointing to each node.
437        Prevent redirect loops.
438        Added _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
4400.47    15 January 2005
441        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
442        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
443        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
444        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
445        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
446        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
447        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
448        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
449        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
450          template tidying including removing old layout tables.
4520.46    21 December 2004
453        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
454          added missing default behaviour for geolocation.
455        Update supersearch help text URL.
456        Added nofollow to robots meta tag.
457        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
458          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
459        Fixed bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
460        Fixed distance search paging bug.
461        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
462          trailing spaces in the name.
463        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
464          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
465          Class::Accessor.
466        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
467          is a risky activity.
468        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
469        Added missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
470          distribution.
4720.45    1 December 2004
473        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
474        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
475          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
476          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
477          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
478          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
479          distance searches will work.
480        In less exciting news:
481          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
482          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
483          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
4850.44    17 November 2004
486        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
487          not completely removed before.
488        Improved the efficiency of the search.
489        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
490          and have changed.
491        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.   
492        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
4940.43    21 October 2004
495        Fixed broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
4970.42    20 October 2004
498        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
499          find_within_distance action.
500        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
501        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
502        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
503          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
504          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
505          introduced in 0.41.
506        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
5080.41    21 September 2004
509        Added backlinks link to navbar.
510        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
511        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
512          installed as index.cgi
513        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
514        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
515          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
516          for details).
517        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
518        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
519          @RSS;username=Kake
520        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS.
5220.40    18 September 2004
523        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
524          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
525        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
526        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
527        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
528        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
529        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
530        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
531        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
532        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
5340.39    15 September 2004
535        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
536        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
537          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
538          you will need to do two things:
539            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
540              directory) or use a different index directory
541            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
542              directory of this distribution)
5440.38    26 July 2004
545        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
546          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
5480.37    23 July 2004
549        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
550        Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
551          avoid escapeHTML bug.
5530.36    13 July 2004
554        Added diff link to node template.
555        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
556        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
5580.35    25 June 2004
559        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
560          use this.
5620.34    25 June 2004
563        Added facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
564          this from the node history page.
5660.33    20 June 2004
567        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
568          the previous one or the current one.
569        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
570          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
571          for most of them.
572        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
573          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
574          by Steve Jolly).
575        Removed inline style from You will need to add
576          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
577          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
578          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
579          td#map changed to td#map_link in
580        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
581          Advanced Search).
582        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
584        Added new preference for default edit type.
585        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
586          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
587        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
588          history) pages.
5900.32    7 June 2004
591        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
592          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
593          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
594          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
595          created accidentally.
5970.31    09 May 2004
598        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
599          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
600          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
601            @RSS []
603        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
604          Accessibility Guidelines (
605          - summaries for all HTML tables
606          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
607            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
608            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
609            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
610            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
611            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
612            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
613          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
614            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
615            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
616            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
617            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
618            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
620        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
621          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
623        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
624          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
625          - empty tags are no longer generated
626          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
627            node RDF view
628          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
629          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
630          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
631          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
632            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
633            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
634            FOAF topics)
635          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
637        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
638          SQLite databases.
639        Doc fix for private installations.
640        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
641          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
642          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
643        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
644        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
645          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
646          be distributing it.
6480.30    29 December 2003
649        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
650          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
651          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
653        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
654          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
655          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
656          of navigation bar is consistent.
657          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
658          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
659          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
660          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
661          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
662          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
664        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
665          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
666          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
667          documentation you can provide.
668        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
669          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
670        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
671        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
672        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
673        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
6750.29    8 November 2003
676        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
677 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
678          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
679 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
6810.28    1 November 2003
682        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
683        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
684        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
685          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
6870.27    1 November 2003
688        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
689        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
690        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
691          Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
6930.26    9 October 2003
694        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
695          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
696        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
697        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
698        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
699          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
7010.25    23 September 2003
702        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
703        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
704          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
705        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
706          have been - skip them for now.
7080.24    8 September 2003
709        Fixed Recent Changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
710        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
711          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
712        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
7140.23    4 August 2003
715        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
716          a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
7180.22    4 August 2003
719        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
720        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
721        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
722        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
723        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
724        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
725        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
726        footer (CPAN request 3110).
7280.21    17 July 2003
729        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
730          all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
731          as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
732          version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
733        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
734          version that didn't have unescape.
735        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
736          autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
737        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
738          the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
739          that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
740          one, not the original one every time.
7420.20    10 July 2003
743        Fixed all the email addresses to
7450.19    10 July 2003
746        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
747        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
748        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
749        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
750          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
751        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
752          rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
753          in your config file.
754        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
755        Implemented minor edits.
756        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
7580.18    16 June 2003
759        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
7610.17    15 June 2003
762        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
763        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
7650.16    26 May 2003
766        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
767        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
768          Save button as well as the Preview one.
769        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
770          instead of decimal (requested by James).
7720.15    18 May 2003
773        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
774          with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
7760.14    17 May 2003
777        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
778          the idea.
779        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
780          Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
781          us to find bugs in.
7830.13    17 May 2003
784        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
785        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
786        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
787        Added edit field for map link.
7890.12    14 May 2003
790        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
791          do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
7930.11    14 May 2003
794        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
795        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
796          variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
7980.10    11 May 2003
799        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
800          node versions.
801        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
802          more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
8040.09    10 May 2003
805        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
806          pub crawl generator.
807        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
808          scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
809          supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
810          process, hurrah.
8120.08    3 May 2003
813        Added fuzzy matching capability -
814          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
815          Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
816        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
817          checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
818          a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
819        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
820          hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
8220.07    3 May 2003
823        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
824          committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
825        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
826          or Category Locales as appropriate.
827        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
828          grubstreet data.
829        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
830          nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
8320.06    2 May 2003
833        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
834          (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
8360.05    2 May 2003
837        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
838          actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
839          somewhat from Siesta::Build).
840        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
841          I think.
842        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
8440.04    29 April 2003
845        First public release.
