Wiki redlinks not working for me

Post by rangerbob » Fri Dec 04, 2020 7:52 pm

I realized i was approved to edit wiki so I added

Code: Select all

* [[LaView]]  many  LV-PB932F4
The link became red and when I click it it just gives me the same page instead of a new page i can edit and add in all the details like

Code: Select all

These and many othere Hikvision off brand versions can be accessed using 

Source Path
rtsp://admin:12345@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:554
Is the wiki broken ?

I have no idea how to make a new page and add in what I learn about each camera i play with


I did not see a compatible hardware list on the Documentation link (Correct me if I am wrong)

Type the URL directly. e.g.:
https://wiki.zoneminder.com/LaView
fastest way to test streams:
ffmpeg -i rtsp://<ipaddress>:554/path output.mp4
from terminal, and run through paths on ispydb or in zm hcl

i tried that it shows a [ 1 ]

i tried LaView:https://wiki.zoneminder.com/LaView
and that just shows that mess.. I want it neat like all the otheres then when I save it as they make it sound I click the redlink and then am able to edit a newly created page with lots of info. frig no wounder there is hardly any pages its not clear how to make or edit any links you can give that explain this clearer would be great. I could of had at least 10 chepo and 10 quality cams listed by now with lotsa details to help people understand how to configure.

what is the proper synax its not clear on https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special: ... rnal_pages
