due to the problems I was having with the current CVS version, I tried
the release candidate that Brion mentioned.
However, it seems that the following input text:
Test - [[Test]] - Test
yields the following output:
Test - - Test
In other words, it just removes links.
Interestingly, it *does* work if the link contains a namespace name:
Test - [[Talk:Test]] - Test
Test - <a href="/~ajh65/w/wiki.phtml?title=Talk:Test&action=edit"
class='new' title ="Talk:Test">Talk:Test</a> - Test
Thanks for any help you can give.
I'd like to know if it's possible under the current system to require
contributors to register a user account before they may make edits to
any pages. I realize that this isn't exactly in the spirit of the wiki
system, but we've had a problem with a user lately who hasn't been
paying attention to our repeated requests to follow the rules. One of
the options we'd like to consider is requiring contributors to register
But, is that possible using the current software? How could I set that
up? I've taken a look at DefaultSettings.php, and I see the variable
$wgWhitelistEdit and the array $wgWhitelistAccount, and I was wondering
if those have anything to do with what I'm looking for.
i keep getting mysql errors when trying to set up the mediawiki locally
database.php line 196
supplied argument is not a valid mysql-link resource.
any ideas what i need to sort out with the following installed
Okay, so after deciding that I was reaching a bit too far, we've
instituted several single-IP blocks to try to stop this anonymous
problem user from making his constant edits. However, after we set the
block with his latest IP address, he made several more edits!
Something's wrong here...
You can see for yourself:
-- pay attention to the Block log and the Sandbox.
(Again, I'm running MediaWiki 1.2.0...)
I've had a problem user who's been ignoring (or not receiving) any and
all attempts to contact him/her in the past two weeks. We've decided,
after some discussion, to try a 48-hour block to see if that catches
their attention. However, this person is using a floating IP address,
that can be anywhere in the 64.107.*.* range. I've used the [[meta:
Range blocks]] page to block all pages in the 64.107.0.* address range,
but that's not enough.
How can I block all addresses in the 64.107.*.* range? (I've already
checked the IP address identity; it's a local ISP and not a major
national chain or anything like AOL.)
I've recently started using Mediawiki, and one of the things I've noticed is that if you don't ignore notice level errors from PHP, you get a lot of warnings about undefined variables. So, I've started work on fixing this, and have attached a patch that fixes the most common of the problems.
I've been testing these for a few days now, without any problems, but would appreciate other people looking over the patch too, see if they can see any flaws in what I've done.
Also, who would I send this patch to, to get it included in Mediawiki?
