Not editable

The Town Hall is a place where users can meet and discuss larger changes to the wiki, such as policy proposals and new ways of displaying and organizing information. It serves as a way for users to be involved without having to find a relevant discussion page. Please be constructive and courteous when corresponding with fellow editors.

We're testing this new discussion system for the Town Hall right now. You can still view the old Town Hall.

June Club episode

2
AioNews10808 Editor1 (talkcontribs)

I put June's club episode to be "Cars, Trains and Motorcycles", a while ago (it has been confirmed that this will be June's club episode) and it has not yet appeared as New Episodes on the home page.

AioNews10808 Editor1 (talkcontribs)

Also Album 68 and "Further from the Truth" are still up on New Episodes when they have been released for nearly two months. So shouldn't album 69 be at top?

New Official Website

7
Puzzlemaster (talkcontribs)

Whitsend.org is no more and it redirects to the new official website, adventuresinodyssey.com. Nearly every episode page has a link to whitsend.org. What exactly does this mean in terms of changing all of the links (and more) on AIOWiki?

AioNews10808 Editor1 (talkcontribs)

I have changed many thing about whitsend.org on its page here. But I can’t seem to Move the old name to it’s current name.

Puzzlemaster (talkcontribs)

I think the new website maybe should get a page separate from whitsend.org, but I'm not sure. I think a discussion is in order.

AioNews10808 Editor1 (talkcontribs)

I agree! I think we should make a new page because it has a totally different URL.

Odysseyfan (talkcontribs)

looks like the names are the same must be a way to do a mass replace text to change the string for the URL and then axe the .aspx

Peachey Keen (talkcontribs)

Maybe we could redirect the Whitsend.org page to something like Official AIO Website or Adventures in Odyssey Official Website, or something like that. WhitsEnd.org was the URL for years, but it was still the Official AIO Website.

OdysseyFan (talkcontribs)

Can we work on consolidating or clarifying the Series Albums/ special albums / boxed albums navboxes? there are some overlaps/duplicates and it can get confusing... anyone have any suggestions? they probably don't all need to be in one naxbox, but maybe we can try that to see how it looks in size/load time. unless someone can define a way to do DPL list inside the navbox...??? or has a better idea.

{{ Character Appearances }}

2
Puzzlemaster (talkcontribs)

The template, Template:Character appearances shows unreleased episodes on each character page. I was wondering if that could be fixed so the unreleased episodes are hidden like they used to be?

Reddo (talkcontribs)

I'll add this to my to do list. I'm planning on completely re-writing that template so it might not happen till we re-write it to make the code more legible and more compatible across mobile and desktop

AioNews10808 Editor1 (talkcontribs)

Album 68 is still on the "New Episodes" segment on the wiki's homepage. Should we replace it with album 69?

Puzzlemaster (talkcontribs)

It's auto-generated. Album 68 only recently finished airing on the radio, so the episodes are still considered new.

AioNews10808 Editor1 (talkcontribs)

Okay, but how about “Bridget, Redefined“, it is May’s club episode and it hasn’t appeared on “New Episodes”?

Puzzlemaster (talkcontribs)

It's there now. Sometimes it just takes a little time for it to appear.

User:Reddo pinging you here in case you missed the recent change log. (you have to read it from the bottom up). Change-log.png

Reddo (talkcontribs)

Well that's weird, guess that's what happens when you copy paste. Sorry about that and thanks for fixing it

podcast links

Did Nathan ever get back to you about this?

Reddo (talkcontribs)

He said they were moving to a new server but wasn't sure where and that's all he said, I Think he's pretty busy

Eugene (talkcontribs)

That makes sense. It's a busy time!

Odysseyfan (talkcontribs)

is that only for new podcasts or all the old ones too?

Reddo (talkcontribs)

All the podcasts are still at the same location on the old server, but when I changed the wiki over to https browsers block some files that are requested not over https so the browser is blocking the wiki from playing the old files as it's not secure. It looks like all the podcasts are over on that new server, although I haven't tried all of them

A2Z (talkcontribs)

Does this change anything for the way daily radio episodes links will work?

Reddo (talkcontribs)

We aren't linking to them directly so we should be okay

Aiow (talkcontribs)

Partially yes this likely will change the daily and weekend shows' links. Reason it is only partially is because they already made the switch on the aio episodes, that was done last fall. Recently they moved everything away from ooyala to there own streaming setup. Add to that the new AIO site in the works and I can imagine they are quite busy.

Jumping Off, Jumping In

2
Eragorn (talkcontribs)

Is Jumping Off, Jumping In the last ever episode of AIO? I'm doubting it, but how the description for the episode is written it sounds like it. -> https://www.aiowiki.com/wiki/Jumping_Off,_Jumping_In

"“Jumping Off, Jumping In” is episode #9??, the last confirmed episode, of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Marshal Younger, and will be released in 2021."

Skylerbuck (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure why it's worded like that, because there are episodes listed after that. But no, it is not the last episode of all time.

How do the 3D covers get generated?

5
A2Z (talkcontribs)

I just noticed that Album 68: Out of the Blue has no 3d cover art...

Reddo (talkcontribs)

Jacob from the scoop makes them, I'll ask him if he made one got 68. As of 69 they have a new designer making the covers so I'm not sure if he'll be making them anymore. I'll see what I can come up with

A2Z (talkcontribs)

Did you get anything figured out yet on this?

Reddo (talkcontribs)

Not yet, he's been busy moving to a new server for his site, I'll ask him again

A2Z (talkcontribs)

No rush, just was wondering what the status was on it. I forgot he's busy with the soda shop being down and all...

Website giving invalid response.

AioNews10808 Editor1 (talkcontribs)

I tried loading aiowiki.com on my laptop and tablet, and the website says "Invalid Response" is there a fix for this?
