I was trying to reach the wiki-site (http://openfoamwiki.net) , but I could not get access. Is the site out of the air? Or is it at another location?

I'm looking into the problem. It seems like the university is playing around with the firewall and is blocking our webserver (I can reach the Wiki from inside the university net but not from outside)

Should be working again.

Thanks for your feedback. I would have lived in blissful ignorance about the state of the Wiki without it.

Hi!
Seems there is a problem on one of the main page of the Wiki :

http://www.cdlact.unileoben.ac.at/non_cdl/OpenFOAMWiki/index.php/Main_Page#The_a pplications

On my browser, most of the links on this page produce an error message , like that one for example :
"Not Found
The requested URL /index.php/Main_OFSolvers was not found on this server."
(when requesting http://www.cdlact.unileoben.ac.at/in...Main_OFSolvers )

Does any other user notice a similar error?

Otherwise I would like to express all my thanks to the webmaster and the authors for this very useful website!
Regards,
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan!

Mattijs is right, you should access the Wiki through the openfoamwiki.net-URL (the other one happens to be the machine the Wiki lives on, a fact which might change). What you are seeing is that the Wiki-engine tries to rewrite parts of the URL - for the openfoamwiki.net-address, which won't work for the cdlact-address.

BTW: I have been told that the university had a 2 hour internet-downtime today. I apologize if the Wiki wasn't reachable in that time (I wasn't in the office so I don't know for sure whether that was the case)

Hi!
Ok I did not know for the correct url, by default I was always using the one provided on the openCFD website! (cf. http://www.opencfd.co.uk/openfoam/di...tml#discussion ) Maybe will this page be updated soon!

Anyway, I have an other error with the openfoamwiki.net adress, the issue is different. When I'm requesting the page indicated by Mattijs I get a timeout message from my browser. This is quite funny as the ping of this domain, even if long (1 second!), is successful (cf. below).

Could be just a matter of time/network... ;-) or could be something else! ;-)
I will try from home tonight, maybee will that be more successful!
Cheers,
Jonathan
ps : -for information- even after having change the default seting for the timeout on my browser (to 1.5second) I keep having this problem.

Hi,

This morning I try to find a way to convert my LaTeX files to the MediaWiki syntax found on openfoamwiki.

Perhaps such a tool will help TeX users to post some useful info on the Wiki ...

So far I have found:

http://wikisophia.org/wiki/Wikitex
http://qwiki.caltech.edu/wiki/Converting_LaTex_To_Wiki

Any way, hope this will be usefull ...

Hi!

Bad news. The machine that hosted the Wiki decided that this world is no longer worth living in.

There exist backups (and the hard-disk still seems to work) and I'm setting up a different machine with them, so I'm hoping to have it back online by the end of the week. For obvious reasons the Wiki will not be available till then.

I apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Bernhard

Hi!

The Wiki is back online .... kind of.

The server moved to a new location, but half of the nameservers (amongst them mine) still refer to the old location. So please be patient.

The Server died on the 19th at approx 9am (MEZ), the last backup was at the 17th approx 4am. Any edits done between these dates will be lost. Sorry.

Also the Wiki got moved to a new version of the Wiki-software. The only downside to this move is that characters with "exotic" encodings (German Unlauts for instance) got garbled. I guess we have to live with that.

Should you experience any other problems (and I suspect here still might be some), please contact me.

Bernhard

PS: As the server is quite new I might have to do some modifications. Expect unanounced downtime (but not longer than a few minutes)

After sitting on these changes for some time I finally changed the front page of the Wiki.

The redesign was done by Jason Hoogland who felt that the old design of the front page was not very user friendly as finding stuff involved a lot of scrolling and he felt it would be nice if there were links to the forum, the doxygen etc right on the first page.

The new design was presented at the Workshop in Montreal and the feedback there was quite positive (and minor changes suggested)

There are further changes planned that would make it easier to update the New and other sections without editing the front-page itself but the plugin that should do this is broken and I currently haven't got the time to fix it.

Feedback is appreciated (either here or on the discussion-page)

Thanks again to Jason Hoogland for the re-design and Henrik Rusche and all the others who suggested or contributed adjustments

Hello Bernhard,

A Good Morning to you :-)!

I was looking through the "new and improved" OpenFOAM Wiki, and I must say.... it does look cool :-)! Nice work and thanks to everyone who was involved in the rework effort....!

The wiki has grown by a decent proportion in the last few years.... nice to see a multitude of "How-to"s... tips... contributions, etc...! I was wondering if it would be possible to have a link to the Wiki at some prominent... easily visible location on the OpenFOAM CFD-Online forum.... something like a Sticky-post in large red (or maybe blue is a little less aggressive !!) bold font :-) !?

One question though.... what did you people use to create the front page of the wiki? Was it purely hand-crafted by some mediawiki "super-dude" ? Or are there some tools that normal people can use to come up with such a slick interface?

Anyway... all in all.... nice work... :-)!

Have a great day!

Philippose

I didn't find such sticky-posts in the forums of the other CFD-software, so I'm not sure what the policy is on such things. And this could also lead to discussions "Why is this Website advertized and this one is not"

There is no magic involved in that layout . More impressive: hard work

To have a look at how it is done just click on the "View Source"-Tab on the top and you will see it was done

Hi!

Due to a hardware problem the machine that hosts openfoamwiki.net is currently down. We're working on it, but I can't promise anything before next week

The Wiki is running again. Excuse tad longer downtime. I blame national holiday on Tuesday, burned out motherboard and power supply that had to be ordered and finally my apprentice administration skills.

For record: Bernhard promised me Toblerone as a reward.
Note: Clarify with Bernhard "We're working on it, but I can't promise anything before next week". Does it make the second Toblerone negotiable?

Thanks again.

One more remark: AFAICT (As Far As I Can Tell) no edits were lost. I apologize again for the downtime.

It would have been, yes. But because you're discussing sensitive internal topics (distribution of chocolate) externally I deduct it. So only one.

Hi Berhard,

I have noticed that the link to the 'NETL wiki' on the OpenFOAMWiki site is currently not being found. (This is in section 3.2 Tutorials)

Do you know whether this is a temporary situation on the NETL site or has the content been moved?

Cheers,

Paul.
