I've discovered a bug in the latest version of swiki ( BigTime ).
I'll describe the browser panes left to right to show the methods
involved and let people find it for themselves.
System-Support|Preferences|standard queries|(keepAliveConnection and
In both method the last line reads
delete these two lines and the Swiki works.
Otherwise the Swiki wiki fails to serve up pages ( except for the
Lynx browser ).
Suggestion which I hope does not get interpreted as a rant.
I was using Squeak 3.0 to run this. From the web page
where I downloaded this swiki it said that either this was version
3.1 of the swiki or this swiki needed the 3.1 version of Squeak.
Unfortunately I was unable to find the 3.1 version of Squeak
( which is probably downloadable from some CVS archive ).
It maybe that the method isAbsent: is implemented in the 3.1
version of Preferences. If so then most people can't use it since
the last stable version of Squeak is 3.0.
I've tried to use ( for the most part successfully, but occasionally
I didn't have the time to put in the effort ) swiki several times,
and it always seemed to be the same situation: the squeak version
runs one behind the version of squeak needed by swiki.
Perhaps it would be a good idea to make available several older
versions of swiki rather than just the most recent ( since that's
all that I could find ). Then people can just match the versions
as they wish.
