Subject: nyan cat on dokuwiki.org
Hello, newbie alert. Please forgive my ignorance if there is a valid reason for this:

When I open http://www.dokuwiki.org the cursor turns into the nyan cat -- a little cat with a body made of pop-tart, see http://nyan.cat -- an annoying sound file begins looping, and moving the mouse spews out a rainbow trail behind the nyan cat.

I was hoping to learn more about dokuwiki but so far what I have learned is that the main website appears to have been hacked, or is now being sponsored by the Coalition for Promotion of Pop-tart and Kittens. I eagerly await clarification.

Is there a way to turn that off? I know the date, but I also need to work.

The Firefox extension NoScript blocks it.

I had to download and install a copy of the new template distribution so that I could check some stuff in the new template, which is also turned off so that the kids could have their fun.

How did you integrate him into the site and where did you get the code? I never saw him before this, the jingle is catchy, I had quite a laugh.

 :blush:  hahaha, I did not think of the date because it was still night in my timezone.

I see the nyan cat has departed; the Coalition for Promotion of Pop-tart and Kittens will have to sponsor other sites now, I guess. Thanks for the humor. :-)

Can anyone provide technical insight into how this was done? I'm not a web developer by trade, so it's not completely obvious to me. My educated guess is CSS with some client side scripting, but were do you get resources such as this? Also not clear is how it was added into DokuWiki.
