Given that NetSurf now supports CSS, and I can successfully view and edit pages with it, can this page be updated to reflect that? It appears to be locked.

Technical Issues with riscos.info

Is this the right place to talk about technical issues with this website?

If so - how come the time given for contributions seems to be out? For instance, as I right this it's 22:32 GMT on the 3rd but the time according to riscos.info is: Adamr 00:21, 4 Feb 2007 (GMT)

riscos.info/www.riscos.info

riscos.info seems to refer to itself throughout as riscos.info. However, 'riscos.info' doesn't work - you need to use 'www.riscos.info'. It would be a slight usability improvement if either URL worked. Could this minor change be made, please? Simon Smith 16:21, 20 July 2007 (BST)


What test are you doing in order to reach for the conclusion "'riscos.info' doesn't work" ? As all 'riscos.info' URLs get automatically redirected to 'www.riscos.info' and do work. joty 18:42, 20 July 2007 (BST)


Plain h ttp://riscos.info has never worked for me, and it still doesn't even now. Presumably an ISP issue. My ISP is Zen Internet. My own web site (simon-smith.org) has always worked with or without the www, as do several other sites I frequent, so I'd assumed riscos.info was failing due to a config oversight. I will try from another ISP (ntlworld/Virgin, I think) when I next get the opportunity. But I'm surprised I've never experimented with both combinations from there, and if I had I'd certainly have noticed if I got the same behaviour as you do. Update to follow in a few days.

Actually I figured out that it is a Firefox browser feature to prefix the URL with www. when the given domainname does not exist. I suppose riscos.info could be supported by DNS reconfiguration but that's something for Peter to do. joty 13:57, 21 July 2007 (BST)

http://riscos.info/

Now redirects to http://www.riscos.info/

My apache config has become quite complex :|


Um, isn't it a DNS change that's required, not a local change? Simon Smith 12:45, 24 July 2007 (BST)

Listing on Wikipedia's 'List of wikis'

Should this wiki be included in this list on Wikipedia? I'm happy to add it, but I don't know the number of articles or the license. --Trevj 15:27, 10 March 2011 (UTC)


Feel free to do that. Number of articles can be derived from here. The license is linked at the bottom of each of the riscos.info wiki pages. joty 21:33, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. Looking more closely at the table, I see that this means it needs its own article at Wikipedia. I've therefore begun an article draft.
  • For speed, most things have been simply copied verbatim. This will be changed when refs are added. I expect some will be retained as quotations.
  • Is it possible without too much difficulty to redirect websvn.riscos.info to www.riscos.info/websvn/? If so, it would carry more weight as a legitimate subsite in the article. Are there any other (potential) subsites which should be listed?
  • If you're able to point me to any coverage in drobe, Archive, etc. it'd save me searching.
  • Please feel free to edit the draft in my userspace if you wish.
Thanks. --Trevj 14:27, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
Done --Trevj 17:53, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
Just a thought, the dynamic {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} (currently 206) could be included somewhere in RISC OS:About. What do you think? --Trevj 11:39, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the {{NUMBEROFARTICLES}} suggestion, I've added that. joty 21:10, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
Sorry if the inclusion there is partly responsible for an increase in spam account creation here. If that's not the case, then please ignore this. -- Trevj 08:24, 9 January 2012 (UTC)
