I accidentally created a category whose name
didn't begin with the word
"Category ", unlike all the other categories. I can't seem to delete
it. Can someone help me out and clean that up?
You need someone with the admin password to delete pages - but you can
make a redirect yourself from "MBTA Red Line" to "Category MBTA Red
Line" using the syntax "#REDIRECT [[Category MBTA Red Line" on the
former. Probably best to remove all categories/locales/other info
from redirected pages, too, to avoid it coming up in searches.
Also, for future reference, you don't have to create the categories
yourself - just add something to a page as a category, and if the
category doesn't exist then it'll be auto-created.
Also, while the forms interface is fairly easy to
use, it would be even
easier if I could just do a bulk RDF/XML import. Is there a way to do that?
I think crschmidt might have done something like this at some point?
AFAIK, it's built into the application. Just go to
However, it's unlikely to be valid RDF, because of XML encoding issues.
Once you have this page, you can use it as a scutterplan to get the rest
of the data.
Getting the data out takes 30 seconds on the Open Guide to Boston, and
returns 5.4MB of data. The file, after being downloaded and XML errors
corrected, is available from http://boston.openguides.org/all.xml
(I don't recommend opening that file in Firefox, for what it's worth.)
Of course, if you really want all the data, the best way to get it is to
set up your own guide instance with the database dump, available from
page, rather than
pounding away at the server to get all the pages out.
