Today, a short tutorial in how to add a logo to the themes used for the template sites. In this tutorial you'll learn how to do some basic CSS customization to add your own logo to a Wikidot site. I assume you're using one of the Rainbow themes but the instructions are easy to adapt to other themes. Making a custom logo is a great way to learn to do CSS customization.

To all those who tried to answer the question what is Wikidot?, thanks. I liked all the answers, and especially Rob's "Wikidot: a platform to share, collaborate, discuss, design, build, work, play and live." Clearly, Wikidot is much more than just a wiki.

Yesterday we rolled out an upgrade to ListPages. This broke some pages, sorry about that. We tried to do too much in one go. Things should be working better today and we've learned lessons that we'll apply next time. Meanwhile, a new documentation page is now ready. You can use this thread to report errors in that documentation or other problems you are still finding with the new ListPages.

We just rolled out a new version of ListPages that implements most of the new design sketch we've developed together. There are a lot of new features. We've been testing for some time but things may still break: if you use this module in your Wikidot sites and you find things are not working as before, please tell us, here.

Is Wikidot a wiki farm, as wikipedia claims? Is it a web 2.0 application builder? Is it a social network something or other? Maybe "more than just a wiki?" Trying to define Wikidot is difficult, and as with all difficult questions, I pass this to you and ask, "how do you define Wikidot?" Define Wikidot in 20 words or less. Winner gets a free… uhm… wiki.

Those tasked with using to host spam must feel pretty miserable. Their comments don't last more than a few minutes, thanks to change notifications. The biggest controversy in the community is, do we delete spam threads, do we mock them, or do we edit them to be useless.

Some time ago we experimented with reverse order comments, on this blog and some of the new sites, like the projects forum. The blame is mine: it seemed that reversed comments should be easier to use than scrolling to the bottom of long threads.
