WikiBot 2 - for Joomla! 1.5 in version 2.3.a

Install, configure and publish this plugin to put it into work.

As the Joomla! plugin installation does not support installation of a frontendlanguage, you have to install those separately. The english, german and swedish .ini files are included in the download. If you know how you can extract the one you need and upload it to your server. Otherwise look for an installation package.

A simple plugin (bot), to create a Wikitagged link to the free encyclopedia Wikipedia. The login language is used if not otherwise configured. i.e. as an example multilingual sites with Joom!Fish activated take the choosen language into account.
Priority order: 1. Your own Wiki (e.g. /url... or http://url...) 2. The default language (e,g, en for english Wikipedia, de for german and sv for swedish) 3. The login/choosen language.

You have to try it out to get to know the possibilities,

Examples how to 'wikitag' your text

You have to replace the ! with [ and ] in your own texts. Wikibot is hera active and changes the Wikitaggs to links.!

Words examples:
In your text: My ingredient is !!Onion!!
Output: My ingredient is Onion.
In your text: !!Titanic (1997 film)|Titanic!! is a good movie.
Output: Titanic is a good movie.

WikiSite examples: [[wiktionary:, [[wikiquote:, [[wikisource:, [[wikinews:, [[wikibooks: !!!
In your text: My ingredient is !!wiktionary:Onion!!
Output: My ingredient is Onion.

New Window examples: [[nw: & |nw: !!!
In your text: My ingredient is !!nw:Onion!!.
In your text: My ingredient is !!wiktionary:Onion|nw:Onion!!.
Output: target=_blank is added to the link, this results always in a new window if clicked.

Include Wikipedia article into your text: [[inc:
In your text: !!inc:Onion!!.
Output: The whole 'Onion' article will bee fetched and included in the Joomla! article or other contents with Wikibot support.

In this case it's a plugin to integrate Gary's Cookbook with the Joomla! component JomSocia.

The plugIn works with JomSocial 1.1.45 and the newer version 1.2. The plugin was written by Maik Lange.

Multilingual with the component Joomfish!

The translation files (xml) are now available. With those you are able to translate the Cookbook and the comments. You'll find the file to download in the Downloadarea.

As answer on a question in the Forum:

Extract the file and load it into the Joomla!-directory:


For dokumentation please visit the Joom!fish site.

Recommendation! Do not start with translations before you have good knowledge of Joomla!. You should know Joomla! and also be able to deal with the work with the translations. The translations need a lot of time if you have a dynamic site. i.e. if the content is changing!

If you also translate other Joomla! parts be aware that you should check all the XML-files. Otherwise you'll end up with a table #__jf_content with millions of not needed entries and a very slow system. But carefully test it.WeI already have had some problems with the "standard"-xml's

My short inroduction to mathematics:

Let's say we have 50 fields in the table to translate. (almost true for the cookbook 3.1)

We want to translate 5 fields.

This makes a difference of 185 000 entries if you have 1000 recipes in the original databasetable.

Used entries-> 1000 recipes * 50 fields * 4 languages = 200 000

Alternative with one language as default and only needed fields:
Alternative-> 1000 recipes * 5 fields * 3 languages = 15 000

200 000 - 15 000 = 185 000,
