This is a very big problem for me. I often copy & paste stuff into
wiki page using tag <pre> </pre> to maitain the original looking. But
the long line cannot be wrapped into several shorter lines. The final
results are very ugly.
How can I achieve word wrap within <pre></pre>?
Thanks in advance.
I have done a fair bit of searching for this, but I apologise if this
is answered somewhere else.
- I am looking for a mod for MediaWiki so that I can have a little
panel that gets RSS feeds from other sites. Does something like this
- Is there any kind of mod that allows for php code to be placed in
wiki text, maybe only by admins and such?
When I try to upload files of type .pdf or .ppt I get the warning: not a
recommended file format (in german).
Is ist possible to enable the upload of non-image files at all?

We've noticed that sometimes sub-categories are not grouped
alphabetically on category pages. For example, on this page:
note the L, R, and T entries after the U entries. None of them have
separate search keys specified, not that that would explain the
incorrect grouping behavior anyway.
We're not sure, but it seems the problem started occurring after we
upgraded from a 1.3.0 beta to 1.3.5. All of the out-of-order
sub-categories were created or modified after the upgrade. However I
also see it on at least one older page so I'm not sure.
Any ideas on why this may be or how to fix it would be appreciated!
We want to use the Wikipedia database in a public project, wrapping it in
our own skin using MediaWiki as (more or less) middleware. In order to keep
our MediaWiki customizations to a minimum, we've been focusing on modifying
index.php to do the dirty work.
What we're looking for is a simple way to have a user-less, read-only wiki.
Since our content comes from the Wikipedia database, and we don't want to be
involved in accepting submissions or moderation, we will be directing all
edits and contributions to wikipedia.org. Because of this, we have no need
for users and such.
We expect to direct a fairly high amount of traffic to wikipedia.org as our
project will be deployed on a network of very high traffic sites.
I've stripped out the login box from the template and prevented such pages
as [[Special::Userlogin]] from displaying, even if one knows enough about
MediaWiki to munge our URLs. Furthermore, no pages that are not in the Main
NS will display. I have this functioning with MediaWiki 1.3.6, but I've been
working on it since 1.2.5. Unfortunately (for me), as MediaWiki matures, I
find myself coding around its changes - for example when
$wgValidSpecialPagesEn disappeared from Language.php in 1.3.0, I could no
longer rely on this array.
What I'm proposing is one or more settings in LocalSettings.php (or
something equally straightforward) that will enable MediaWiki to operate in
a read-only, no-user mode. Naturally, I will offer any help to achieve this.
What do you think, MediaWiki developers?
First, if there's a searchable archive of this list somewhere, please show me
the way before I ask too many faq-type questions. But until then...
On the search results page, the paging links (Next 20, etc) are displayed no
matter how many results there actually are. Seems like those links should be
somehow related to the actual number of results. I end up with 1 or 2 search
results and a dozen links surrounding them which don't actually do anything.
Any way around that?

After upgrading my version of MediaWiki, my images directory was somehow
corrupted. I tried replacing the files from backup, but that didn't work
for some reason. (Sorry, this was a while ago.)
I re-uploaded all my files, but now the links in my wiki pages don't point
to the same paths in my upload directory. How can I fix this? Do I have to
run md5sum on all my files, and update the md5 in the database?

I'm willing to pay someone $150 for them to modify the default
MediaWiki to something very simple. Trust me, I'm looking for a very
basic site look.
But, I have no idea of how to do this and it looks like a huge pain.
So... if there's anyone out there who wants to make a quick $150, drop
me a line.
