Re: Are my files lost forever?

Barb Kikta
 

Rachel, 
I did the same -downloaded into html format. I then found a site to establish another wiki-Editme.com. When he migrated my wiki, some files titled with accent marks could not open-the page said they were not there. They were there according to my Editme contact but because of accent marks that the software did not recognize, they didn’t open. My contact would have had to redo the migration to rewrite code to ensure it recognized the accent marks. 
So, I searched for my documents in my computer instead, renamed them without accents and uploaded them without accent marks. 
I don’t know if this helps. 
Good luck, 
Barb

Hello fellow refugees,

 

Before Wikispaces closed I did an html download and everything seemed fine. When I open a page, it opens in my browser and internal links within the page function fine (i.e. Table of Contents links). However, when I try to open the links to actual files that had been uploaded to that page on Wikispaces, I get:

 

File not found

 

Firefox can’t find the file at /W:/Departmental/Facilitators/WIKI/Wiki Export HTML/espfacilitators/mainSpace/Sebastien Lylyk (CGSC 1001 & PHIL 1301).html.

 

    Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.

    Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

 

 


Did I do something wrong? Does anyone else have this problem? Are my files lost forever.

 

Thanks,

I removed the leading slash to access the right directory, and there are lots of files in there, just not the ones I'm looking for.

I ended up finding them in a totally different location: 

W:\Departmental\Facilitators\WIKI\Wiki Export HTML\espfacilitators\mainSpace\Files Organize by Dicipline\English\Courtney WS plans

This may mean that some of my staff were "helpfully" reorganizing things for me.

Thanks so much for the help guys.

Re: Are my files lost forever?

This was a good suggestion, but unfortunately the files are not there. There are no spaces in the file path or file name:

 

W:/Departmental/Facilitators/WIKI/Wiki Export HTML/espfacilitators/mainSpace/files/CourtneyL_ENGL1609_WS7_6Nov2017.docx

Re: Are my files lost forever?

The URL reported by Firefox itself looks suspicious because of the leading slash "/W:/Dep...". If that is indeed what Firefox reports, then maybe it is reporting incorrectly what should be "W:/Dep...". Use your file manager to check in that W: path for that specific file.

Another thing could be the use of the "()" or "&" characters in the filename. Check to see if the actual filename has them replaced by HTTP escape sequences (begin with the "%" symbol).

Re: Copying & Pasting from Wikispace PDF Download

  Firstly, you have to give us more info.  What are you using to load your PDF and copy from, and what are you trying to paste into?

  If you are using something commonly used to open PDF's, like Adobe Acrobat Reader, it works just fine to copy text and paste it into anything that accepts text.  It sounds like whatever you are using is copying it as if it were a pdf file instead of text.

  Alternately, instead of using a PDF you can also export in the native Wikispaces format and load those files into a text editor or Word and copy text out.

Re: Unsubscribers' Feedback #migration

Tom H
 

Hello Tom,

1.     Why have you unsubscribed? We moved away from Wikispaces before our July 31, 2018 deadline.

2.     Are there any changes we should make to the forum? No.

3.     If you have settled on a target to which you did (or will) migrate your Wikispaces wiki, what is it? We went with PBWorks.

4.     If your target is publicly viewable, what is the URL? Not publicly viewable.

5.     What was the name of your Wikspaces site? McNallyLibrary

We primarily use our Wiki as a communications tool, and had trouble finding a low cost, secure site that provided timely notifications with a simple, but customizable structure. Wikispaces was perfect for our needs and it took us quite a while to find something that would work as well for us. We very much appreciated Wikispaces and its features over the last several years.

Re: Unsubscribers' Feedback #migration

Tom H
 

1. I unsubscribed because the discussion is no longer relevant to me.
2. No changes necessary as long as I do not continue to receive unwanted emails.
3. I transferred all of my content to Microsoft One Note notebooks.

1. It is past the deadline and I gave up trying to transfer my account.
2. No.
3. I will probably start a new account with Schoology.
4. No
5. It is no longer important.

The Wayback Machine for public Wikispaces sites #export

Tom H
 

For those with publicly viewable Wikispaces sites, The Wayback Machine may be a resource for retrieving some content. My site has snapshots this year on Jan 19, 20, Mar 15 and Jul 26. The last two appear to have been blocked at the home page by an error - my suspicion is that it was the banner that Wikispaces put up on all sites when they announced the phased shutdown, or some other change in their server that coincided. But the ones in January present the Home page beautifully and navigation from that point forward seems to be within the July snapshot, if I interpret the URLs correctly.

There are snapshots going back to Jan 2012. It was fun to see what was different.

If you had a publicly viewable Wikispaces site and have lost some content with the shutdown, maybe you can recover it from The Wayback Machine

If you have such a site still active and it has not been crawled by The Wayback Machine, try submitting its URL for a requested crawl.

Unsubscribers' Feedback #migration

Tom H
 

This topic will contain copies of responses I receive to a questionnaire that is automatically sent to members on unsubscribing from the group. Unsurprisingly, members do leave the group because it does not serve a need any more. Either they have already migrated or have given up. Here are the first two responses:

  1. Why have you unsubscribed? I decided to pay CiviHosting to migrate and host my wiki for a year.
  2. Are there any changes we should make to the forum? Other than Migration for Dummies (answer = pay someone!)
  3. If you have settled on a target to which you did (or will) migrate your Wikispaces wiki, what is it?
  4. If your target is publicly viewable, what is the URL?  No, it is private.
  5. What was the name of your Wikspaces site? VCS Media

  1. Why have you unsubscribed?  Decided to make a lot of changes to my class website, so downloaded what I needed to and left the rest.
  2. Are there any changes we should make to the forum? Organizational, I was clueless. It was too hard to follow a thread of conversation.
  3. If you have settled on a target to which you did (or will) migrate your Wikispaces wiki, what is it? Google sites.
  4. If your target is publicly viewable, what is the URL? Yes, if you have the link. tinyurl.com/bmhshchem and tinyurl.com/bmhsochem
  5. What was the name of your Wikspaces site? bmhshchem.wikispaces.com

CyberDuck 6.3.5 is the last version that worked with Wikispaces WebDAV. I don't know if it has any advantage over 6.1 for this purpose.

I downloaded the pages directory, because I wanted the raw data that I convert to Mediawiki format with more scripts I wrote.  The pages_html folder contains 0-byte files, just like you're seeing.

Did you download the "pages" folder or the "pages_html" folder? On my site, CyberDuck can download the files in the former but sees the files in the latter as being 0 bytes and fails to d/l. Likewise pages in "history" download but not those in "history_html".

I went to WS Support who responded 3 days later with the advice:

I had installed 6.6.2, the current version so I uninstalled it and proceeded with 6.1 from https://cyberduck.io/changelog/ . It's over a year old.

Success! I opened the connection using the option "WebDAV (HTTPS)" for secure login to my Wikispaces site.

 
Now to explore...

Confirmed in this correspondence with Wikispaces Support:

Dear Tom,

Thank you for your email.

All the content from the free wikis has now been removed from the website. Even we in the support team can no longer access it, so unfortunately there is no way we can help you.

Users are able still to open Plus Plan wikis, but they will not have access to their previous data from now removed free wikis.

We understand that this is frustrating and we are sorry for the inconvenience.

If you have any further questions, please do contact us again

Kind Regards

1. Is there any way that an Organizer of a now-closed Free Plan site can
get an export?
1. Would Support initiate it and send the download link?
2. Could they now Upgrade to a paid Plan for a month and re-open the
site to do it themselves?

Thanks,
