reintroducing sidebar menu

Hi I see you've been trying to fix the sidebar extension so that it works for 1.25. If you need any help I can provide assistance! --Jonathan (talk) 12:31, 14 November 2015 (EST)

I've got it covered for now, thanks! I think I'll upload the source to githup seeing how the extension has not been maintained for 1.24+. Might be useful for other wikis. --David (talk) 17:04, 16 November 2015 (EST)

Who are we?

Hi David, how long has this site been around without me noticing it? I found it today when googling for an old chip I found in a drawer at work, the MB8855. I have previously been involved in the ChipDir-project which seems to have faded away, as well as in the HardwareBook. I will come back here and dump a lot of missing info I guess! --Uwezi (talk) 07:03, 28 February 2017 (EST)

Hey Uwe,
Awesome that you found us! It's always great to meet people who share similar interests. We started the site a few years ago, but it wasn't until last year that we really started getting the ball rolling with an attempt to detail all those old chips that have been pretty much been forgotten as well as some of the new stuff (most recently Zen/Kaby Lake). We being myself and a few friends who are also engineers in the field who have great passion for those chips/systems. We are currently trying to at least document the various chip families from each company. I've also been trying to get my hand on some old databooks so they could be digitized. So welcome to WikiChip! --David (talk) 12:03, 28 February 2017 (EST)

Email verification not working (2017Q1)

Hi David,

Email verification doesn't seem to be working: 'Unknown error in PHP's mail() function.' I tried stripping out the comment characters (which trip up some email address regexes) as well as resetting the address - both of attempts yielded the same error message. --Chipocalypse (talk) 16:03, 27 March 2017 (EDT)

Hi, thanks for letting me know. I think it should be fixed now. Looks like it was broken configs from when I upgraded recently. --David (talk) 18:27, 27 March 2017 (EDT)

SSL Cert expiring

Hey David, just a heads up the SSL Cert is about to expire! --At32Hz (talk) 13:57, 3 June 2017 (EDT)

It's been renewed. Thanks! --David (talk) 23:07, 3 June 2017 (EDT)

Telling google not to index parts of a page

Hey David, I need to not to index some of the mIRC pages (like the index templates such as ) in order to stop google coming up with every identifier page when you search for a specific identifier. To do this I need to insert specific HTML googleoff and googleon comments as per . How do I do this? Sophist (talk) 18:14, 2 October 2017 (EDT)

I thought I've done that. Let me double check. --David (talk) 18:35, 2 October 2017 (EDT)
Looks like I only had talk pages not indexed, I've extended it to template pages too. So Template:mIRC_identifier_list should not be indexed anymore either now. This is applied site-wide. --David (talk) 21:36, 2 October 2017 (EDT)
What I was intending is NOT the same as NOINDEX. NOINDEX applies to the whole page. What I am trying to do is exclude specific parts of the page (i.e. the bits that are repeated on every page) from the index. Sophist (talk) 03:18, 3 October 2017 (EDT)
