Forum to this website. This new forum will allow users to chat in comfort about the Unofficial BOINC Wiki!, user documentation and about BOINC powered projects in general.
This is an excellent new feature to add to all of the recent modification that have been made to this website in the last few weeks. Lots more to come!
The Unofficial BOINC Wiki! has just added a new feature that allows users to use external images hosted on another website. This is a major step forward in the right direction for the UBW allowing far more flexibility for users when writing articles to explain stuff.
So now when users write articles, they can use images that are hosted anywhere on the internet. A common place where users host images is Photobucket or flicker.
Here is an example of an image hosted in Photobucket but being displayed in the Unofficial BOINC Wiki!
To add an external image to a page, simply post the url of the image with no other wiki formatting, its that simple!
Enjoy the new feature!
