I thought that I’d go and have a look at what all of the fuss was about. Good for Wiki, if it’s publicity that they wanted they got it. News channels are reporting that Wiki is offline and that students and others looking for reference works should take the day off, they are wrong!
A quick simple read of the Wiki “Technical FAQ” page explains the easy work around.
Simply type or cut and paste ?banner=none to the end of the Wiki URL that you originally opened and hey presto the page that you originally wanted appears, as in my example on the left.
So, if you’re stuck at home and the children are complaining that they can’t finish their homework, show them this, or if you were intending to research a subject for your next Chariot post, don’t put it off get back to work!
