Omniverse Nexus site relaunched!

After laboring for a few days and trying to wrap my head around how php works, I've finally managed to get MediaWiki live and running right here!

Obviously, there's still a lot of work to do. I haven't set up the separate wikis yet, but editing is enabled. There's still plenty of tests to run first, so this is where you come in. I want to know what features you would like to see implemented as well as suggestions as to what the layout should be like.

Over the next few days, I'll continue tinkering with this, but you all should be good to create your accounts and make edits there as you please. Until the dust settles, don't be alarmed if something suddenly glitches out while on the wiki. Chances are that's just me in the process of testing out some things, so I would hold off from importing articles right away, and instead have discussions here on wikia until everything is properly configured.

Um, is it just me, or does the .svg file thumbnail not work? It has several annoying bands of text saying "Warning: symlink() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/content/06/10282706/html/nexus/includes/media/SVG.php on line 207". Does the php extension have anything to do with this? Because it shows up when I access the file's page wherever I am. Thoughts?

I'm having the issue as well. I went to that line of code, and even turned off the security systems for a bit, but the error is still showing up. I'm guessing it's an issue with the MediaWiki software, so I'm going to try to comb the help pages for a solution.

Status update: There's over 80+ articles now. Hallowed Worlds (the new stuff at least) and Miraculum Chronicles are fully imported. Still a while to go for the other settings, but for me personally, I'll only be doing imports for Erudite Tales, Galactic Crucibles and Myth Galaxy since I have a significant amount of articles there. A few more guides and stories have been imported, and several stories were also marked as featured on the front page.

Right now, I'm just focusing on getting content out there so that there's something to look at. Once the migration process is complete, I'll begin concentrating on aesthetics and organization.

I'm constructing a new, more sophisticated main page design here. Some thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

So far so good! I like the formatting.

Hi, another thing... It seems the MediaWiki does not have a random generator extension by default (the <choose> thing), which means that unless it is put in to the software, we can't have the Did you know and Tips section on the main page. Here's the link to the extension:

Alright. Working on it. Let me know of any other common extensions you want me to add.

Update: Installed it. Just note that it uses different syntax from wikia using "random" and "item" rather than "choose" and "option".

Okay, cool. Cheers!

Quick note: I'm aware the blog system is bugged. I'll have to visit MediaWiki for assistance.
