I am using 1.13 alpha r32485.
When I submit a page edit via the API, and I add [[Category]] tags
within it, they don't show up when I do a prop=categories query.
However, when I view them using Mediawiki they do. When I submit an edit
using the "real" mediawiki editor, they show up in the prop=categories
query so I think the bug is in action = edit. Has anybody else
experienced this? Is there a fix or a workaround?
I noticed an incompatibility between the trunk and ApiEdit_Vodafone
version of ApiEditPage. The trunk version requires the ep prefix,
while the vodafone version has no prefix. I suggest that we make them
the same as soon as possible now that only few people use the api. I
suggest to remove the prefix.
I saw that the edit/create pages stuff went in 1.12, but when I look
at what I downloaded from the main download site (1.12.0), ApiEditPage
isn't included. I know it's not available on the Wikipedia servers
yet, but for an instance I'm running, I'd like it. I know we've all
been waiting a long time for it (and thanks for the hard work!), but
when will we see it available as for download in the release?
Again, really, thanks for the hard work to those who have implemented
write functionality. It's greatly appreciated.
Earlier today I attempted to retrieve a full list of all external URLs
in my wiki, unfortunately I was unable to do so as the list would not be
output (return an error) if I specified a generic euquery such as "*",
nor would it output if I specified no query at all.
Does anyone know if it is possible to retrieve a list of all URLs in a
wiki via the API, if not would it be likely to be implemented?
I'm sorry to bother you with this question but I could not find any
answer on the mediawiki website.
Is this api intended to be an interface just for manipulating the
wikipedia/wiktionary/wiki* content or is this api also for software
developers to include wiki* content in their software?
(I don't want to abuse the api)
Thanks for your answers
I am trying to send queries to my installation of MediaWiki outside of MediaWiki.
I want to build a test application that searches a major search engine but also the MediaWiki install.
I use the API with the list=search call but I don't get a lot of information out of it.
Example of call and result:
Is there any way I could get a teaser for each page (like the teasers that you get when you actually search on the wiki)?
