The company where we host our Wiki (wiki.languagetool.org), Wikidot, has not maintained their wiki software for years. Recently, it became impossible to log in without changing your browser configuration (https://hacks.mozilla.org/2020/08/changes-to-samesite-cookie-behavior/). Without logging in, you can’t edit pages. The situation is not going to improve it seems, so the plan is to move the content elsewhere. Here’s my idea:
- Use GitHub pages and move content from the wiki that’s not outdated over there
- There will be links from the old Wiki to the new one
- Use dev.languagetool.org as the domain, so wiki.languagetool.org will stay there for some time
- The new content is in Markdown syntax. Technically it’s not a Wiki anymore, but it can be modified like any other file in GitHub
I’ll be working on this soon and I’ll send an update here once/if the move is complete.
