    Thanks haysam,

    For Wiki pages I have also written an application called Wikid Wikis. It supports page creation, deletion and editing along with video and image capture and upload as well as comment and tag management. Right now it is going through the Apple review process but fingers crossed it will be available soon! There is also a free version that should be available at the same time called appropriately enough Wikid Wikis Lite that loses the media managment and create and delete functionality but retains the ability to edit.

    Hope this helps!

    request filled within a week !
    I still think this should have been done by Apple, but thanks a lot, I'll make sure I'm your first customer
  • Derek Sibelle Level 1 Level 1
    Well... I wish I could code so fast that it only took a week More of a lucky coincidence I think but Wikid Wikis and Wikid Wikis Lite are now available on the app store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

    More info here

    The Lite (free) version brings simple text editing. The premium version allows the addition of videos and images from your image library. You can even capture movies and video if you have a device with a camera and upload them without leaving the app.

    I am thankfull for the recepy on how to enable edit for the iOS. It worked as a charm. That takes us half way trough the problem...

    As I understand, the problem is lack of Java support in the browser(s) as this is what the editor is based on. Until Apple choose to give proper support for Java we will suffer no matter...
    There might be a work around though. If someone could figure out how to disable the editor - preferably with a button - then we all would be clapping hands

    Or build an app that works

    Unfortunatelly the Wikid Wikis only gave me the option of editing in html mode, and that is not convinient. Also it is not needed as following the recepy in this topic you will be able to edit the pages in html mode in your browser. Also the app did not save my changes to the page.. Hopefully an update will give more functionality
    I did not try the upload though...

    I have tried Wikid, it's good, but having to edit everything in HTML ruins the experience.

    I hope this is fixed in 10.7 server.
  • JazzyJazzy Level 1 Level 1

    very good - it worked for me too changing the .js file (but with "true" instead of "invisible")



    Is there something to do with the iphone native pages?

  • JazzyJazzy Level 1 Level 1

    oh no - it seems not to work. New blogs made by iphone dont list and I cannot edit them (no keyboard)


    Here is the reason probably why apple made it hidden. It does not work yet ???





    this means all the efforts to set up an environment for collaboration is nothing worth - the apple marketing guys are just playing with us


    - easy to set up server

    - collaborative envirnonment

    and so on

    ok I ve red this thread more carefully. If I switch to html the keyboard comes up. But I cannot really suggest to use it this way.

  • Etri Level 1 Level 1

    JazzyJazzy, please read the post carefully. It did say "set visibility to TRUE".

  • JazzyJazzy Level 1 Level 1

    Dear Etri,


    I have in 10.6.7 this: .........lassName:'toolbars',style:(SafariFixes.isiPad?'visibility:hidden':'')} ,[this.mM..........


    It does not show the keyboard with "true" it just shows the three icons pencil plus and minus.


    I will check it after the update to 10.6.8 again.

    Dear JazzyJazzy,


    The next two days I'm not able to test the wiki ;-) but if this is what you see, then I would suggest to use "visibilty = visible". Just based on a feeling... If this doesn't work then I'll try to test things later this week. Let me know if it works.

    When looking at Mac OS X Lion Server (10.7) the wiki has changed a lot. The reason why you can not edit pages using an iPad, is that functionality for editing with an iPad is missing. Perhaps with iOS 5 this will change..?


    For simulation purposes however: this is how far I have come to edit pages on an iPad. What I can do:

    - Add a page with default text in it

    - Edit the format of the existing text in a page


    What I can not do is changing the text, for the simple reason that the text block is not regarded as an editable textblock on the iPad (i.e. the keyboard is not popping up...)


    To get where I am:

    - Open the Finder and type: Shift+Cmd+G (goto folder): /usr/share/collabd/coreclient/public/stylesheets/ipad/

    - Edit the file screen.css (e.g. with TextWrangler)


    - Search for "#header .buttonbar.actions .add" (notice the spaces before .buttonbar and .add). This will show the plus sign for adding pages.

    - Change "display: none !important;" to "display: block;"


    - Goto to the next #header block for .edit (the edit page section)

    - Change "display: none !important;" to "display: block;"


    Notice that here there is no background-image, so the default pen (for: edit page) will not show. For test purposes, just copy the line "background-image: url(./img/add.png);" from the .add section to the .edit section. Apple didn't create an edit.png file, so no need to change the file name...

    I gave up a perfectly good (and inexpensive!) Netbook computer to get my dream of an iPad, and I'm ****** OFF that I can't use it at my University's Online forum, (a part of ALL MY CLASSES), where we are REQUIRED to contribute to discussions using rich HTLM forms. I have to instead, use a University computer or go home and get on my Mac. So much for the Post-PC, do everything BS.

    Wow.  That is truly failful, apple. 


    It  . . . that's . . . not good.

  • MetGrp Support Level 1 Level 1

    Using iOS 5.0.1 and Lion Server 10.7.2


    Followed @Etri's instructions and, Voila. GUI editing on my iPad2. Thus far only tested base-level text entry but working fine, both onscreen and BT keyboard. Located a pencil icon in one of the image directories (cc) and made an edited copy for the ipad img folder - called it pen.png and it shows and works so I have a "proper" icon.


    Thus far the iPhone templates are a much more difficult to crack. I'd be happy getting the system to feed the iphone the ipad css and js but - not to any great surprise, no dice when I backed up the iphone folders and copied the ipad folders, renamed iphone, into their place. I get iphone layouts sans images even after a reboot & clearing the phone cache ... so some more detiailed hunting/editing to do.


    For now the answer is the 99¢ AtomBrowser running as "Firefox 5" --- the server doesn't like the Desktop Safari option in this browser. This is glitchy, but functional enough to give me hope until the patch that finally brings editing online. Knowing Apple, it could be awile since lack of file system makes some much more complex custom coding that is more likley the domain of an editing App in the app store vs. a desktop-feature-consistant web-app. Thus... we'll probably never see it and admins who can put all the other helpful tools of Lion Server to use will either play the game or hack together other tools BSD/Linux-Style.
