Howdy all,

I’ve been assigned a project to redesign an existing wiki for a company with a rather sizable wiki.

I am searching for a file I can purchase or technique I can use to import the existing wiki html content from all articles to my app with a new style sheet.

Anyone have a tool on Envato or reference I can buy/read…?

Thanks folks, Sean Wichert, Sr.

Most wikis are dynamic, in that they propagate content using php from db.

Merely scraping html wont work unless you want to spend months editing stuff.

So do you think it would be faster to simply save all existing html pages & copy & paste into new templates and simply re-style the existing elements that are used by the pages from the current wiki?

I mean, Media Wiki templates don’t really use very many different tags any in general.

Just line height & default font sizes plus a little alignment, padding & margin that mainly all stem from the top level elements.

Idk.

I’m still going to hunt around for a less time consuming process.
