For bugs we can use .../nonav/... to omit large and heavyweight site chrome from the page display. But there seems to be no such option in the migrated wiki.
Even in "Printable" mode, e.g.
you still see all the site chrome, effectively making it useless for printing.
This is a regression from the JSPWiki setup.
Assign to Michal.
Actually the printable view has been fixed todays early morning. Sometimes you need to delete browser's cache to avoid problems.
?printable=yes is fixed, thanks. That was a side note, not the point of this issue, which is that whereas under JSPWiki there was no site chrome, now there is nb.org site chrome surrounding the useful wiki content. This is bad for serious wiki users: less usable screen area, bigger image downloads, more visual distraction. We need the equivalent of /nonav for wiki, i.e. a way to delete everything which is "INCLUDED CODE FROM NB.ORG". In the short term I can probably Greasemonkey the chrome out.
Rather, not quite deleting all of "INCLUDED CODE FROM NB.ORG", since that deletes the toolbox too. But most of it.
I figured out that mediawiki has switch for templates:
So i am able to prepare new skin for nonav mode and set rewrite rules in apache to translate http://wiki.netbeans.org/nonav/<PAGE> to http://wiki.netbeans.org/wiki/index.php?title=<PAGE>&useskin=nonav
Problem is the internal links can't do that. Possible solution is to set cookie or session variable which handles internal wiki links. What do you think about it ?
Whatever you think would work. Firefox users could use a Greasemonkey script to redirect to the nonav version, which would help with the screen usage problem but make load time worse rather than better (since the chromeful page must be loaded completely before it can redirect).
