Installation prerequisites

  • FlowchartWiki and MediaWiki are based on the "LAMP" Stack: Linux/Unix/Windows, Apache, mySQL/Postgres, PHP. This plattform should be available on your system.
  • FlowchartWiki is an Extension for MediaWiki. Please install MediaWiki first, then add the FlowchartWiki Extension. (See also Installation)
  • The standard installation of FlowchartWiki will NOT work together with Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) installed in the same wiki. (See SMW+FlowchartWiki for a workaround.)

Unpacking and installing

Please see Installation

Release and upgrade Notes - Current Release FlowchartWiki

FlowchartWiki 1.2.4

  • fix sloppy coding that PHP 7.x rejects or complains about now (Thanks to Adam C. from the US.)

Please note: There are some fixes on github that you might want to use when running MW 1.27 or later.

FlowchartWiki 1.2.3

FlowchartWiki 1.2.2

  • fixed MediaWiki 1.24 compatibility issues.

Upgrade from 1.2.1:

  • Replace the extension directory with the new version and (optionally) delete the images in ./images/flowchartwiki

FlowchartWiki 1.2.1

  • Changes for deprecated functions in MediaWiki 1.21.x
    • ExtensionMessages was removed.
    • counter.php was removed -> replaced by direct copy of old function.
  • dot not creating image files with empty label=, needs to be label=' ' instead.
  • added call to PHP clearstatcache()

Upgrade from 1.2.0:

  • Replace the extension directory with the new version and (optionally) delete the images in ./images/flowchartwiki

FlowchartWiki 1.2.0

  • Bugfix by Hiroyuki S.: long pagenames in fchw_LoadPages() in lib.php
  • catching some php-Notice "undefined index" errors in lib.php with isset()

Upgrade from 1.1.x or 1.2.0-beta-x:

  • Replace the extension directory with the new version and delete the images in ./images/flowchartwiki
  • optional: Use the new "Category" as Graph Header feature (see Customizing).

FlowchartWiki 1.2.0-beta2

  • Bugfix by Gerrit I. - double entries in Database when tags are twice in a wikipage
  • PHP 5.3 compatibility - tested together with Peter v.L.
  • Changed field length in schema_mysql.sql for from_title and relation from 255 to 120 due to problems with UTF8 databases and indices being longer than 1024.
  • added $wgExtensionCredits

FlowchartWiki 1.2.0-beta1

  • major rebuild of .dot file creation, reduced Database-accesses and moved data-structure into internal object hierarchy (see fchwobjects.php for the objects)
  • This was a prerequsite for adding other features to the graph:
  • Include a Link to the Category-Page on top of the graph, if Customizing has a Page-Type "Category".
  • Position all Pages that have no Level::xxxx assigned at the bottom of the graph, sorted in alphabetical order.
  • These pages CAN have a Type::xxxx assigned to use a shape and Color from the customizing. Links to these pages may work, but will probably screw up the graph :-)
  • add Customizing-Function fchw['zLevels'] for the number or items per row for the "Unassigned" Pages.
  • This can be set in LocalSettings.php. If not set, it defaults to 4 and is set in flowchartwiki.php.
  • Calculate the Height of the graph based on the approximate number of rows. (This may not work properly for CategoryBrowser2 which displays two images.)
