Test Site for Contributors

For practical and convenience purposes, you might not want to publish your work directly onto MyWikiSchool. There are a few options for you to test/develop your materials before publishing.

Online test site

Offline test site

If you need to develop/test your materials offline for convenience and practical purposes, there are a few options
  • Wiki on Pendrive - this will give you a blank mediawiki site that works directly off your pendrive.
    • Some modifications needs to be done to enable the hide/play tags. I can share the modifications here or even modify and upload an installation file if anyone needs to use this.
    • Mathematical equation support, however, is out of the question with this method, unless using an online option, which nullifies the reason to use this method in the first place.
  • Run a virtual machine running linux and mediawiki. This is the method I am using as I need maths support offline. I can share the method and the virtual machine file (it's around 1 GB) if anyone is interested.
