Wiki seems to be vandalized - update trac

As I've been looking for the jQuery docs, I followed the ''documentation'' link on the main page ( and found out that this page has garbage content...

In a similar vein, looking at SourceCode, and some other, it seems that Wiki vandals, spammers, and other nice people are quite active here.

A few possible solutions:

  • install the SpamFilter plugin for Trac (you need Trac 0.10 or 0.11dev (*) first)
  • turn a few key page ''read-only''
  • give WIKI_ADMIN permissions to trusted contributors
  • so they can modify ''read-only'' pages
  • so they can delete spammed or vandalized versions of Wiki pages

(*) 0.11dev which by the way uses jQuery, so that would be another nice way to "demo" the library!

As another viewer/user of the site, I have to agree fully. The open Wiki is Not working - there are far too many spammers etc, and it means that actually finding information is geting harder.

Limit the editors, or at least assign moderators, or whatever is necessary - please!!!

SourceCode is now read-only, too. Let's hope John finds some time to install an newer version of Trac.
