I’ve been trying to quality control the entries in a wiki i’m
developing. My main concern is to log “who has written what” so that
spammers and abuse can be easily traced.
Being fairly new in Rails, i am unsure of what would be the best way to
Here are a few possibilities:
Resting on the Log
easy to implement, not resource intensive. But no real dynamic pullout
of the data when needed.
Adding to a separate foreign keys table.
Heavy duty processing. Might not be performance friendly. Redundant
data as the chunk of text should be stored too? or character range?
Adding custom tags to the text
embedded special tags with userid would be included within the editable
text for every entry.
This is the best solution i have come up with so far.
If anyone has some thoughts about it or knows some good tutorials on
the subject, it would be more than welcome
