  • Figure out namespace policy
  • Initial top-level organization
  • Style guide? (Do you mean guidelines?) (yeah -jessi)
  • Import Worldwind.arc.nasa.gov redesign plan, SourceForge tutorials, manuals, FAQ, etc.
  • After DNS gets updated and this is wiki.worldwindcentral.com we need to (pending discussion) temp make a few moderators on the forums so they can easily cut and paste into the wiki. Also for things like FAQ, Lists, and other hot topics a message pointing to the new wiki'ized version should be put up there. (okay, let's talk about it on IRC -jessi)
  • Collaborate with Worldwindcentral staff on transferring Wiki to them (almost there)
  • 2ndary header; footer NASA-site standardization; sidebar graphic
  • Better, locally hosted tutorial (or link to MediaWiki user guide)



  • Figure out how to set up a Developers Sketchpad that doesn't have the share-alike clause.
  • Ok I looked into this. The options are (in order from easiest to hardest): 1) just place a warning up on any dev pages saying that the content on these pages is copyright original author and is up for evaluation, testing and for open comment purposes only. 2) Put a go between page on the license policy that explains the funny 'dual' license. 3) Try our best to 'hack' media wiki to accept two licenses.
  • Get worldwind style links to work: WW Link
  • Do a diff with mediawiki 1.4b5 figure out what files you messed with.
    • Done Diff (This is old?)
    • I'm slowly unraveling the mess. Some files I can't help changing and will have to patch each time. But apparently I shouldn't have screwed with MonoBook.php which I modified heavily. There is a more elegant solution, but I haven't figured it out yet. (Simply renaming it to another skin doesn't work and will break your account, luckily I can copy / paste in the database :)
  • Apparently you can add a logo to the [worldwind://] link above using css. If so I'd like the GOTO logo associated with it. External link logo shows up in IE, does not in firefox.

  • point mars and proxy, but I'm not sure how nowak has it orginized and we're not at all ready yet.
  • unpack your house :)

World Wind Central Hotspots

In Progress

Database work

  • image needs a user attached
  • hotspots needs date attached (import from image)
  • set unknown dates to site launch (oct 14?)


  • add all information to view_hotspot infobox
  • rip out image code
  • Create accounts like admin,sysop,root, and make them trolls. Also perhaps george carlins 7?
  • Add date submited to infobox
  • Add full clickable category in infobox
  • I would like addhotspot to utilize View On World before actually adding a hotspot. That way users could see where it is, their image and data before actually adding the hotspot. In addition we should check and display any hotspots in the area to cut down on duplicates
  • Add a user level system (in progress)
  • Top 10 users
  • Add a news system (this should be a wwc main site project?)
  • for each category.. a view all on map
  • Need to automagically change them to hyperlinks.. but then also have to do something about the length of them because it messes up the layout if the link is too long
Nowak: s/(^http:\/\/|^)([^\/]*).*(\/[^\/]*(\/$|$))/\1\2\/...\3/

try this :D

echo "http://test.com/a/b/c/d.php" | sed -E ' s/(^http:\/\/|^)([^\/]*).*(\/[^\/]*(\/$|$))/\1\2\/...\3/'

  • set redirects on add / edit / delete hs (goto)
  • if a category is empty it's name doesn't show up
  • allow worldwind:// style entry
(again provided by nowak)
$wwc = array();
if (strncasecmp($link, 'worldwind://goto/', 17)) return array2object($wwc);
$types = array('lon' => 'float', 'altitude' => 'float', 'world' => 'string');
foreach (explod('&', substr($link,17)) as $field) {
  $field = explod('=',$field, 2);
  $x .= $field[0] . '->' . $field[1] . ' | ';
  if (isset($field[0]) && array_key_exists($field[0], $types)) {
    settype($field[1], $types[$field[0]]);
    $wwc[$field[0]] = $field[1];
$wwc should be an array with all the info if I'm reading the code
