Hi all,

First of all I'd like to say Swiki is really neat. I admire people who can turn ideas like this into practical programs that people like me can learn from and use.

I set up a PSwiki server without too much trouble except that I could not get it to restore a PSwiki from the file. I kept getting a syntax error "PSwikiPage as yet unclassified self" where it starts to construct the PSwikiPage from the file using self name:.... etc.

Anyhow, after a bit of head scratching I traced it to a missing ' in the file. The method chunk1 in PSwikiPage has missed putting a(n) ' after the time. The new method is listed below.

I can now restore a PSwiki!

Hi All,

This isn't so much a fix as a method rearrangement. PURLmap newpage: from: method saves the new page before the username, password and privs have been initialized, resulting in nil values being saved. This creates a problem when a new page is created and the server is shut down. If the PSwiki is then 'restored' and the new page browsed a "Message not understood: includesSubString" error is reported. This does not occur if the page is edited before the server is shut down as the proper values have been assigned at this stage.

The new method is listed below: (Now available at http://guzdial.cc.gatech.edu/st/PURLmap-newpage.st )
