==ToDo==
 
1. Enable links to external images to allow images hosted on an external website (e.g. the QR codes) to be displayed: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Linked_images#External_image_syntax
 
 
1.1 Less secure way: allow all images http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages
 
 
1.2 more secure way: all images from this site: http://chart.apis.google.com/ http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImagesFrom
 
 
2. Add this the Extension to embed RSS feeds: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:RSS
 
 
3. Identify a couple more projects in the hackspace + print trial QR labels for them.
 
 
==What?==
 
Attach printed-out QR codes to each project. That QR code will contain a link to the relevant project page on the wiki.
 
 
==Where?==
 
Project boxes and projects in the hackspace.
 
 
==When?==
 
With any luck from 4th August onwards. I will print out a test batch.
 
 
==Why?==
 
This will facilitate collaboration as everyone can then find the most relevant wiki page for that project quickly.
 
 
==Who?==
 
Current project collaborators: [[User:samthetechie|samthetechie]]
 
 
==How?==
 
I will use the [http://code.google.com/apis/chart/ google charts API] (credit to [[User:jonty|jonty]] for the recommend). That will generate the QR code images.
