=Naming=
 
Several custom namespaces exist within our wiki and have sepcial meaning:
 
* the Grid5000 namespace must be used when pages are to be public and if not in a site namespace for instance.
 
* the sites namespace (Orsay, Lyon, aso) must be used for site specific pages
 
* the default namespace contains all other normal pages.
 
NB: pages actually readable by a anonymous user (not logged in) are configured in the wiki configuration file. There is not "hard link" between the namespaces and that feature in fact.
 
 
 
=Howto add a page to one of the portals=
 
To add a entry to one of the portal boxes on the left side of the wiki pages, the Mediawiki:Sidebar page must be edited. Please ask a wiki sysop.
 
==user portal==
 
Pages that are to belong to the user portal are just normal pages. This means, when you create a page, it will belong to the user portal by default. If you wish to edit a page within one of Grid'5000 sites, just use the site namespace prefix, '<code>Grenoble:My page</code>' for instance.
 
==public portal==
 
For a page to become readable by not logged in people (for instance people that does not have a Grid'5000 account), the page name must be added to a configuration file. Please send a request to [mailto:pierre.neyron@imag.fr the wiki admin]. Public pages should belong to the Grid5000 namespace (<code>Grid5000:</code> prefix) in order to keep thing obvious, except if they already belong to a Grid'5000 site namespace. 
 
==committee portal==
 
Page that must be read-restricted to the committee people must be resticted using the wiki feature. Please ask one of the wiki sysop.

=RSS feed access=
The [[Special:Recentchanges]] page and the [https://www.grid5000.fr/index.php/Special:Recentchanges?feed=rss RSS feed] are only available to logged in users. This is a issue with regard to people who want to read this feed using a RSS aggregator. Anyway, 2 solutions a proposed to bypass this:

The [[Help:RSS]] presents how to use a RSS aggregator to read this wiki RSS feed (recent changes).
 
 
==1st solution : use an RSS reader that is built into your web browser==
 
* Safari
 
* the Sage extension for Firefox)
 
* ...
 
 
 
==2nd solution : use wget to retrieve the page in a cron job==
 
* find your cookies.txt file (usually $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/''randomstring''/cookies.txt)
 
* use
 
wget --load-cookies $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/''randomstring''/cookies.txt -O grid5000.rss https://www.grid5000.fr/index.php/Special:Recentchanges?feed=rss
 
* if it doesn't work, run wget with --debug, and check that it properly send the cookies.
 
* Use your RSS aggregator to parse grid5000.rss
 
 
 
NB: Be very careful if you try to edit the cookies.txt file : wget will silently forget some cookies if you mess with cookies.txt.
 
 
 
NB2: the cookies.txt file can be moved between systems (ie you can generate it on your desktop and run the cron job on a server)
