The new site

Hi everybody,

So we finally, after about 4 years, decided to give a massive redesign.

Originally, as the name suggests, SpankWiki was indeed a Wiki, meaning it was based on the Mediawiki software (the same that runs Wikipedia). While that did offer some cool features it also imposed some quite severe limitations and more importantly, it was quite slow.

The new site is extremely different. It is based on the latest bleeding edge technology and it is an ultra fast modern HTML5 application.

We hope you like it and have patience with us while we iron out all the bugs that are bound to be there. Please do let us know what you like and if anything does not work as expected!

While the previous sites were build using off-the-shelf software, the new is build by us from ground up. While it has been quite a big project it gives us immense flexibility to add new features and tweak existing ones.

Over the past week or so, the following new features has been added:
  • Category search
  • Free text global search
We hope you like it.
