Hey when making links to media makes sure it is http:// as have seen in a couple of places ftp:// it will work for you seeing that you have an ftp account. Also the paths for ftp are sligthly different as you may see but for http:// it is . This is because your ftp account links to the media folder not the root directory so when you are making http links you just need to media/ into the link

Main Page

Hi I have tided up the front page so that the borders end at the end of the section not all of them at the bottom of the page. Just needed |} on a blank line at the end of the section. karit 23:26, 12 March 2008 (MST)

Wrong page names

Hey when there is a page with the wrong name drop me a line and I can do a move which is cleaner than making a new page as it also moves all the old edits etc. karit 22:40, 19 March 2008 (MST)


Does it look better now?

Google rank

Hmm still some more quality inbound links from good quality relevant sites to get the rank a little higher. Need to get onto musicnz etc and get them to link to us etc.

Adding dates to news


When you add news could you please add a date to so people know when it was added to this site. DD MONTH YYYY is good.

Discography Info

Came across the following which will be helpful in population of the discography information with release dates, version, catalogue numbers, etc:

I have been through and put dates down most of the Discography page.

Good work on getting us linked around the place. Thinking the best links are from music related sites, as Google will treat it better when it is coming from a page that says Shihad.

Looking at some stats from Google Analytics benching marking feature which compares our stats to other similar sized music related sites. Well we need to work on bounce rate as we have a lot people who view one page then leave. So any ideas to improve visitor retention it would be good.

Also do you have a high res copy of the Shihad shield logo?

karit 18:56, 22 March 2008 (MST)

With logo send me what you have. I am planning on making it into a vector image so I can make it bigger without the scaling issues. Just the biggest image I currently have it the favicon on the site.

Thanks that will do have made a SVG out of it now just learning how to manipulate it properly to do what I want to do with it. karit 04:36, 23 March 2008 (MST)

ftp pass

Just sent you a new one. Can't see the existing passwords so just generated a new one. karit 00:35, 25 March 2008 (MST)

Main Page

Sorry I can't delete history through the front end. Looking at the URL if you log off it should clear it. As currently looking at the page at the end of the link I just the catalogue page.

Song Template

Just edited the template the field is called ChartPosition

Song template chart position

Think I have fixed it have a look at One Will Hear The Other (song)

Though might have to go through all the songs and do "Chart Position =" (sans quotes) not sure how to make it blank by default

Song Chart Position

Just thinking why do songs need a chart position? As it is the single with the chart position not the song. I am just about to remove it from the song template and leave it just in the discography template which singles, albums, etc use.

Re: wiki work

This is the first time I've ever used a Wiki, but I manage to pick things up pretty quickly. The whole copy and pasting codes is what I've been doing, but I know there are a few things that change in every page I do depending where I get the code from so at times it's all over the place. I just stick up what I can, I have no problem with other people fixing things up or changing them completely, specially where lyrics are concerned because some of the ones without a booklet are quite tricky to work out. I shall follow the template you've specified from now on. Sara (devolveme)

News on Main Page

I'm thinking we should try and keep the news on the front page to say the last month just to keep fresh and to stop it growing out of control. The old stuff can continue to live on Archive:News so can always go back to see the old news and what not. What do you think about that idea? Should I have a look at it tomorrow night or something?

Cheers looks good karit 23:38, 26 May 2008 (MST)

Adding a song to song list

Hey there, how do you add a song to the song list? Scott

songs that need adding

Hey. I was wanting to add I Can't Win, The Sheep and the cover they did of Midnight Oil's Kosciusko.

Video page


Can I suggest a download page rather than just videos?

E.g. Downloads

  • Bootlegs
    • Link to Bootleg Category
  • Videos
    • Link to category of songs/gigs with you
    • Links to gigs with DVD
  • Wallpaper
    • Need to talk to Rodger if he mines us linking to his Wallpapers or if he wants us to host them or something.
  • And so on

As to uploading videos music videos I guess are ok. TV Shows I would say no to as they are owned by the TV show. Stuff off CDs and DVDs I would say no to as they have been released as a commercial product. Stuff from mobile phones should be alright. karit 21:30, 11 June 2008 (MST)

I see you made a tempalte. The only thing I have done to it is add the Category:Videos to it so so long as you use the template it will automatically put it in the category. karit 00:07, 12 June 2008 (MST)


Should just be able to use the forgot password things on the login form and that will do the whole email thing.

Hey, could you tell me how you upload pics onto the gigs pages please? cant seem to find a way to do it. have uploaded a picture but it hasnt saved on the gig page...cheers. Scott
