PDF Extension[edit]

Hi Günter,

I am Thomas - a phd student from Stuttgart. I am new to PHP. I wanted to use the [[Extension:PDF|PDF Extension]. Unfortunately I couldnt get the extension to run. I got the error as described on the discussion page of that extension and I was wondering if you could explain to me why this problem occured.

Viele Grüße, Thomas, Thbaero 21:20, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Hallo Thomas,
nur ich habe rein gar nichts mit dieser Erweiterung zu tun! Sorry, dass ich nicht helfen kann.
Hallo Gunter,
danke für die Antwort. Inzwischen habe ich das Problem auch lösen können.
Thomas, Thbaero 17:23, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Hallo Thomas, ja danke. Hatte mich erfolglos versucht und das Thema einfach aufgeben. Kann es jetzt ja mal ausprobieren! --GunterS 17:43, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Hallo Gunter, bei mir war auch die Hilfe eines Kollegen notwendig. Aber jetzt habe ich eine funktionierende Version und habe auch schon weitere "Mutationen" der Extension erzeugt, mit der ich jetzt auch ein <XLS>, <PPT>, <DOC> Tag zur Verfügung habe. Bei Fragen, oder wenn Du den Code haben willst, kannst Du mich gerne fragen. Thbaero 17:48, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
Soll das heißen, es gibt jetzt ein Word-Export der Seite?
Nein, es gibt jetzt aber die Möglichkeit einen IFRAME innerhalb einer Wikipage zu platzieren, mit indem auch ein Word-Dokument angezeigt werden kann. Wirklich keine große Sache. Mit der ersten Extensio konnte man ja schon PDFs in einem IFRAME darstellen. Und ich habe jetzt zwei weitere Tags erzeugt, mit denen man dann halt auch XLS oder DOC Dateien in einem solchen IFRAME darstellen kann.
Ein Word Export ist dies aber nicht.

Beta status => Status beta, etc.[edit]

Hi Gunter, I don't know if it was you who changed Template:Extension, as it was an anonymous edit. The new wording for the categories are pretty wierd. "Beta status extensions" is more grammatically correct than "Status beta extensions". Would you object to me changing it back? --HappyDog 17:28, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

Hello HappyDog,
thank you for asking. Yes, I do oppose. Even though grammatically less correct, I prefer it, because all "Status xxx extension" list neatly together under the letter S as subcategories in category extensions. Otherwise it is very difficult to look for the status categories, especially if you do not know, which types are possible.
--GunterS 19:42, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
Supplying an argument to the category will sort them correctly, e.g. [[Category:Extensions|Status xxx extension]] would solve this. In fact, I'm considering a better organisation of this category tree anyway, which would remove your objection altogether:
  • Extensions
    • Extensions by status
      • Beta status extensions
      • Experimental status extensions
      • ...
    • Extensions by type
      • Hook extensions
      • Parser extensions
      • ...
    • ...and so on.
What do you think? Much better if people browse from Category:Extensions using the expandable tree, but an extra click if not... Even if we don't tidy the category tree like this, the sort order argument should resolve your objection, n'est pas?
--HappyDog 18:40, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
Perfectly happy with that, better than both "old" solutions. ;) --GunterS 22:08, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
The status extensions have now been re-categorised, as described above and as discussed at Category talk:Extensions. Cheers --HappyDog 13:46, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi Gunter, I'm curious about progress on Extension:UploadCSV, I really need this functionality in place and was about to write one with almost identical functionality. How much progress has been made on it? --Nad 10:20, 2 May 2007 (UTC)

Hello Gunter,

it seems that the extension only works if the CSV file to upload is stored on the servers file system.

Around here, we do not get access to the server, so the files would need to be uploaded via the web form? Do you think you can fix that?

Best regards,


Word2MediaWikiPlus SourceForge Access[edit]

Hi Gunter,

Can you please give me developer access to the Word2MediaWikiPlus SourceForge project? I have a bunch of modifications that I would like to commit, and there don't seem to be any other active developers on the project. I would be happy to commit to a new branch if you don't want me changing the trunk. I've added support for nested lists, background colors, bookmarks, and anchor links. I've also done a bunch of testing on Word 2007 and made it much more compatible with that tool. My user name on SourceForge is cneubauer as well. I've tried asking Fernando as well. Thanks. --Cneubauer 19:00, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
