Below are three examples of pre-installed wiki extensions that enhance and extend the collaborative nature of the omCollab Suite. For the full list, refer to Special:Version.
Example 1: Links to assets of a particular type, on an external wiki
The links shown here are generated by the APIQuery extension, which is pre-installed.
External wiki articles about OmCollab: (Want to go directly to the category page? Click here!)
The extension reaches out to an external wiki (you configure the destination wiki in your LocalSettings.php file) and retrieves links to articles on that wiki which correspond to the apiquery settings specified in the wiki tag (click view source, or edit, to see the tag).
Use this method when you do not have credentials to query an external wiki directly.
Example 2: Bookmarks from an external omCollab Bookmarks site
The links shown here point to bookmarks on an external omCollab Bookmarks (or Scuttle) web site. These require the omBookmarksExternal extension, which is pre-installed with OmCollab.
Articles on an external omCollab Bookmarks site: (Want to add a bookmark to this list? Bookmark it and apply the following tag(s): Main Page)
In this example, we are displaying bookmarks from MIKE2.0 Bookmarks (http://mike.openmethodology.org/bookmarks) where the term 'collaboration' appears in a bookmark's tag on that site. To see the configuration options for this extension, view source or edit this page.
Use this extension when you want to display bookmarks from an external site.
Example 3: Locally Bookmarked Assets
The links shown here are retrieved from your own instance of omCollab Bookmarks, using the pre-installed extension 'omCollabBookmarks'.
