I'm having difficulty utilizing the wikipedia widget.  I've searched the term and haven't found a how to use it for dummies, me.  

I added the wiki module to my wiz, looked up the term on wikidpedia, took the url copied in the wiki module, hit review, got code and thought well... maybe it converts on the view, did not.

Does anyone know how to use the wiki mod?  I adore referring to wiki and feel I should use the module...

Aha! I didn't even notice that! I just popped a capsule up, inserted a relevant wiki url, pressed save and had no issues. This is what mine looked like:

Not sure what you mean about the code part?

I tested it, and it works fine. Go to the Wikipedia site of your choice, and then copy/paste the URL into the module. Voila! You can also try to copy/paste only the part after the "/". So, if the whole URL goes like this: http://wikipedia.org/chefkeem, try to copy only the "chefkeem". Both ways worked for me, though.

One of my old Squidoo buddies once tried to write a wiki about me. It was deleted before I had a chance to look at it. Apparently, I'm not interesting enough for the world. I tend to agree, though.

Bah! Your day will come! Either that or I'll get famous and get a wiki article and say that you were a great inspiration to me, and they'll HAVE to write one about you!

That's too kind of you, Susannah, but I think Wizzley should get a wiki first.

Wizzley doesn't have a wiki? Quick, some wikinerd make one! (Must admit I've never edited/made a wiki in my life. Probably coz they don't pay!)
