I'm sure that this has come up before but I can't find it. I want to add a
stat counter from one of the external services to the footer of my
mediawiki, so that it is on all pages. I can't seem to find which files or
where I would put this.
Any help would be appreciated.
I'm running MediaWiki 1.4.0 and have some problems:
* Editing doesn't work properly: If I hit "Save page" I get the preview
page instead. If I try often enough it will work. This problem occurs
only when I'm logged in.
* Rollback doesn't work properly: I get a message saying that there is
a problem with my login session and that it was cancelled as a
precaution against session hijacking. This problem can also be solved
by trying often enough.
* Same for uploading.
* If I log in and don't activate the checkbox saying that the wiki
should remember me across sessions I'm instantly logged out again if I
load the next page.
I think the editing and logout problem are also related to the
anti-session-hijacking mechanism, even if there's no error message
I'm not familiar with php or web programming in general but I figured
out what the problem might be:
The wiki is hosted at Sourceforge.net. sf.net uses multiple
apache-servers to serve web pages. When a page is requested an apache
is selected by some kind of load balancing mechanism.
My theory is that the wiki thinks someone tries to hijack my session
anytime the apache that serves my pages chances. This would also
explain why retrying very often helps: If the same apache that
processed my "edit page" request also processes my "save page" request
the wiki detects nothing unusual and lets me save the page.
Has someone else experienced this problem and found a solution?
Maybe it is possible to deactivate the session hijacking detection
I would be very grateful if someone could help me.

I'm starting a new intranet-style wiki, and I'd like to make the wiki
links fully case-insensitive.
I've read various discussions about the pros and cons of
case-sensitivity. What I'm not entirely clear about is what would need
to be changed (at the technical level) to achieve it. From what I've
read, it may be that the chief technical problem is dealing with
existing pages whose title differs only in case. Since I'm starting
from scratch, that wouldn't be a concern for me.
Is there some well-known bit of code that needs to be modified to
achieve case-insensitive links for a new wiki? Or is this something
that needs to be figured out yet?
I've got a page which opens an url in frame 1 and the same url
translated by bablefish in frame 2.
Whenever I try with a wikipedia (or my wiki), the frameset explodes and
there isn't any frame.
disconnect on my wiki?
(the two frames are by default set on a german newspaper translated to
Is it possible that CURRENTTIME shows localtime instead of UTC? I'm using
$wgLocalTZoffset = -5, and I see it works but only for editing times.
Is there some way of defining customized variables?

Have been trying to insert other namespaces into the SQL query of
SpecialPopularPages.php, and pages in other than the main namespace do
appear, except that their titles and proper links don't take effect.
I want userpages, image pages and other namespace pages to appear on the
list, and in the future I want to include a dropdown menu similar to the
ones on the log pages, so that the user can pick the lists themselves
and sort them in different ways. I'm running MediaWiki v1.4 beta5 (still
need to do the final update to v.1.4 stable)
I'd be grateful for any insights, you might have :-)

I've installed the prerequisites for 1.4.0 and then 1.4.0 itself as
per http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Running_MediaWiki_on_FreeBSD on my
FreeBSD 5.3 box.
The wiki is working just fine, but texvc isn't. make ran clearly and
there's what looks very like a binary there, but it isn't working.
The symptom is that you put a piece of text in the page, e.g.
<math>a \over b</math> and, instead of a nice PNG, you get:
"Failed to parse (PNG conversion failed; check for correct installation
of latex, dvips, gs, and convert): a \over b"
What I have here:
* latex, dvips, gs and convert are all present in /usr/local/bin .
* Per the README, I put putenv("PATH=".getenv("PATH").":/usr/local/bin");
near the top of LocalSettings.php .
* The web server runs as user www:www, and the
/usr/local/www/data/mediawiki-1.4.0/ directory and everything under
it has permissions 644 or 755 and is owned by www:www.
* images/tmp exists and contains TeX files, so it's generating those, just
failing to render them. But we could have guessed that.
* no errors generated by this in /var/log/httpd-error.log .
* Brion suggested on irc to make sure PHP safe mode is off. I *think* it
is, looking at the config files.
Any clues? Is there some obvious newbie 'duh' I've missed?
