    Agreed. In the wake of the Vista debacle, our organization was primed to explore alternatives to Windows for collaboration, calendaring and podcasting, but as a result of these idiosyncrasies, I'm constantly having to defend a server platform that is often appears to be in "proof on concept" mode. Due to it's terrible Active Directory support, Podcast Producer wasn't really a viable service for us until upgrading to Snow Leopard. Now if only I could figure out why our wikis suddenly disappear for some of their users...

    Just dropping in to note that the bug is still present as of today (18/11/2010). Did anyone submit it as a bug???? Can it be fixed???? Is this "feature" really a designed-in not alterable part of the system. Didn't Apple want people to use the iPad/iPod/iPhone???

    I submitted a bug report.

    Having rich wiki editing capability remotely using an iPad would rock our small company's world!

    I agree with ahoutzerkk: "This should be a matter of embarrassment to Apple...It's something that just has to be fixed because it makes a person look so stupid."

    The employees at the firm who hired me, all have iPhones and were looking for something to make it easier to collaborate on cases remotely. I told them the Apple Wiki might be a great solution! Now, I am going to have to tell them that the Apple Wiki is not editable on the iPhone or do I not look like an idiot?

    Can anyone suggest a wiki server and or collaboration tools that are editable in the iPhone and iPad?

    I run various sites with [Drupal|], and can edit pages via iOS devices; the input uses stock HTML for input.

    I find a solution to edit wikis & blogs on iPad : if you use iCab browser on iPad with ID Navigator : Firefox Mac for exemple, you can see the page like on your Mac. So you CAN create new articles from your iPad.

    Update: moving to 10.6.6 doesn't help. The editing controls are still missing...

    I just managed to enable the Add/Edit/Delete toolbar!

    In the finder go to the folder /usr/share/collaboration/javascript/
    Use menu option 'Go To Folder...' in Finder, as the folder is normally hidden (so you can't just browse over there...)

    Edit the file compressed_wiki.js with an editor such as TextWrangler (one that can read/write as sudo)

    Search for 'isiPad' (without quotes) and you should see something like:
    {id:'toolbars',className:'toolbars',style:(SafariFixes.isiPad?'visibility:false' :'')}

    Change 'visibility:false' to true and everything should work fine! (tested on 10.6.6 only!)

    This is great! I verified that the "edit" buttons do appear when I use the "Atomic Web" browser on my iPad.

    I will try modifying the pref file so that it shows up in Safari as well.
  • jflow Level 1 Level 1
    I made the changes to the javascript file and can now post on the Apple Wiki from my iPad. It seams like I have to hold my finger down a split second longer in order to initiate a "click" I do on other sites. And in order to enter text, I have to switch to the html entry mode.

    Also, in my case the script read: visibility:hidden':''

    and I changed it too:

    Now, if I could just upload documents...

    Very useful info. Thanks for posting.

    blog editing would certainly be nice and it seems like a execution failure by apple that it is not currently possible.

    another suggestion, either for apple or for an enterprising app developer: build a simple IOS app on the phone that creates a blog entry with some optional text, one or more photos, and optional keywords. this seems like it should be easy to do. i believe it could be done using the metaweblog api, which the docs say that apple's blog/wiki server supports.

    there are third-party services that provide this kind of thing, aka "microblogging", but it seems kind of dumb that i can't use one great apple product like an iphone or an ipad to create a blog entry on apple's own server os. this is the kind of thing that apple's supposed to be good at.

    Did someone ask for an iPhone app?

    Wikid Blogs is a native iPhone/iPad app, designed from scratch to work with Mac OSX Wiki Server 2, that fully supports creating and deleting posts, editing as HTML, uploading images, adding and deleting comments and tags and a few more niceties besides. There is also a free version called Wikid Blogs Lite which has some restrictions but does support HTML edit.

    Cool work Derek, thanks for filling a void left by Apple ! Any chance you'll add functionality for the wiki part as I'm not too much into blogging ?
