    Hello Türkiye! 

    Yay! Finally both me and Rémi are in Turkey.

    So far we have really good feeling of Fethiye — we just have to hitch there, see if we like it and start looking for a place. I’m in Alanya now heading west and Rémi will hitch down from Istanbul. Along the way we will check other places as well of course.

    There might be other developers joining us as well in place and remotely, which is great news especially for native mobile app development!

    From donations we have collected 800 € so far — that means we can rent a place already and start hacking. :-)

    We’ll keep you updated how things proceed!

    Today I improved little bit of Philipp’s rating functionality for countries on wiki pages, such as Spain. In future I want to show this nice little widget over Maps when you click on country bubble.

    After we’ve gathered good set of data, we can start making pretty cool looking statistics about world’s hithability, such as this map.

    First days at BXL hackathon 

    It’s 3 of us here now and we’re just doing little bit of this and that.

    Our plan is to work mostly on Hitchwiki and

    On Hitchwiki we’ve got such things on our todo list.

    So far we’ve nailed:

    • New header is visible on some parts of the site. Notice new search input with wiki selections! Also frontpage got tweaked up.
    • We’re doing a — a place to do all the tweaking and hacking in future.
    • A script that shows any missing interwiki-links between pages with the same name.
    • MediaWiki antispam extension – It disallows posting links for new users. You need 10 edits to be allowed to post links now.
    • All the hitchwiki is now analyzed and sorted out by Piwik.
    • Visited StartupChile in Leuven.
    • Fixed rest of the login issues to Hitchwiki.
    • Fixed loads of little WP bugs and stuff.

    Happy hacking everyone!

    Community URLs changed 

    Hitchwiki Community has moved! But not far away.

    Old address was and new one is, tadaa:

    From now on you can access whole of Hitchwiki community from the very frontpage. Blogs also moved to new addresses. If your blog address before was — it’s now just

    This is a step towards more unified Hitchwiki site, where you don’t wouldn’t get lost between community, wiki and maps.

    Some quickfacts:

    • Old URLs still work and are redirected to new ones with message to search engines “moved permanently”.
    • In future it will be possible to attach domains to blogs.
    • No changes in Wiki and Maps URLs.
    • No actions needed from your side, just keep blogging.
    • Login on frontpage logs you into community, but not into Wiki’s. If you login first to Wiki, you’ll also login into community. Yeah, complicated… we’ll work on this later on.
    • Fixed author-links to point to your community profile page.
    • Hitchwiki logo on Wikipages updated!

    If any problems, let me know!
