All games come to an end eventually, and when that happens you don’t want to lose your entire website.
Ares allows you to export the key bits of the web portal to disk: Characters, Scenes and Wiki.
See ‘help wiki archive’ in your in-game help files for details.
(For older games, run
bundle exec rake webexport from the server shell’s aresmush directory, and the output will be in the wiki-export folder.)
You can also export just the raw markdown files for just the wiki. This is helpful if you ever want to use the wiki files again on another game, or just want a copy for local reading:
The files will be in the wiki-md directory, which you can then FTP to your PC.
