Contents Welcome to wiclear home page

Wiclear is a Wiki engine. That is, a software to create web sites where content is freely editable online. Wiclear is in early development and has few features, compared to more advanced projects like Wikini, Wikimedia or other well known wiki engines : you'd better use them before looking in more details to WiClear. What are the goals of WiClear ?

WiClear is all the most an attempt to rewrite the Nosica web site. Nosica used a very light wiki (home made), and it was time to rewrite it in good php. It is Dotclear that gave me the desire to rewrite a wiki and learn some more php. Main features are :

    easy themability,     hierarchical structure,     multi lang supports (not only UI but content as well), and     a plugin architecture.

A security problem was found in Wiclear. 3 sites were compromised (my blog, nosicalanguage and this very site). The problem is I'm still in the process of moving to New York (from France) and I have not my furnitures (nor a box) and cannot publish an update. I was very angry to find out my sites were attacked and hacked, I'm now very angry to see that Secunia has published a security advisory without contacting me to see if I was aware of the problem so I can try to do something. I should be installed this saturday, I won't have an internet connection immediatly but I'll try to publish an update next week. In the meantime, copy the .htaccess found in /conf/ to /inc/, /inc/lib, /inc/classes, /admin/inc, /admin/inc/lib, /admin/inc/classes and /tools/trackback/. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Update (11/09/06): after having bought a laptop, version 0.10.1 corrects the problem.

2006, 29th of July

Holidays ! 3 weeks. There will be no activity for the next 3 weeks. I'll have a look from time to time but do not expect any answer from me till I come back. For the news, 0.11 is nearly there with the cache done and all other things done as well except threaded comments. I noticed some weird behaviour caused by the cache, but I guess we will find the problems... :-) Enjoy yourself ! 2006, 03rd of June

As usual Wiclear as well as my other sites under Wiclear already runs this version to help me find bugs quicker : don't hesitate to drop a note on the Bugs page if you find an unusual behaviour. 2006, 09th of January

Happy new year to you, visitor, Wiclear user or future Wiclear user. It's been a long time since I've published a new Wiclear version. The good news is 0.9 is nearly finished feature-wised. The bad news is Wiclear development has slowed down because I don't have enough time... :-) Well but this is because of another good news : I've got a daughter now ! :-) I've recently received some pretty good encouragement, and that's nice and all, but now I need help. I need help for testing (2/3 guys already do it from time to time), I need help writing user documentation (on this site, using wiki syntax), and I need help for coding. See page TODO, Developers, and Roadmap. Thanks ! 2005, 18th of August
