I am in the process of trying to build a wiki starting from some legacy
word documents with heavy amounts of mathematical content. I have
succesfully exported to xhtml with equations represented in mathml
(using MathType), but am now stuck with converting the xhtml to wiki
markup. Suggestions, anyone?
Actually, it only seems to be happening when I edit a page, links from the tabs at the top, the navigation bar or page links are OK

Subject: [Mediawiki-l] Install: is putting www in front of URL
I have just installed on a local intranet with URL http: //cad.ha...etc The install went perfectly. However, now, every time I try to go anywhere a "www" is prefixed to the URL, so http: //www.cad.ha... With the www the link fails, where can I get rid of this please? I have looked in the documentation, but cannot see the fix anywhere.
PHP: 4.3.10 (cgi)

I upgraded my wiki from what was 1.4.6 running on RHEL 3 Linux, or
something close as damn. I now had 1.4.10 on FreeBSD. I made a test
install in a directory called testwiki and then installed some
extensions, such as Graphviz and Timeline. I also checked that LaTeX
formulas worked. Everything seemed fine, so I renamed the site to its
original form. Then I rebooted. Now the main page is gone and the
extensions stop working. I even renamed the thing back to testwiki and
the main page and the extensions work again, but latex is gone for good.
I have a article on my wiki where I would like to be able to provide
controls to a read to filter content on the page.
To be more exact, it's a calender of events but spread across several
countries. Some readers will only be interested in one country and I'd
like to be able to add a simple control to hide the others.

Is this doable in a MediaWiki way?

First let me apologies in advence for any typo since i am not a native
second WOW if what you say is true its very wierd ... while i am new to
mediawiki i am not new to wikis. i have implemented wiki with 700 nurses
using pmwiki and its easy (well not really) to do groups and implement
ownership of pages so pepole can only edit a restricted set of pages. i
understand the wiki philosophy and i runed completely open wikis for
years but the probleme is that spam is getting so bad its rough to
manage. The content would get replace, new page get created with links
to porn site and while this is ok for most technology oriented pepole
because they know they can just rool back to the last good version its
confusing for the users and down right no acceptable in a school contexte.
i really like mediawiki but if it can support basic groups i will have
to convince them to switch to pmwiki or usemod or sommething that
thanks for your help
When selecting special:watchlist....
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in
the software. The last attempted database query was:
(SQL query hidden)
from within function "wfSpecialWatchlist". MySQL returned error "1064:
You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'UNION SELECT rc_namespace
cur_namespace, rc_title cur_title, rc_cur_id cu' at line 9 (localhost)".

i have just merged the ORACLE_WORK branch into CVS HEAD, now that 1.5 is
branched. this may create problems with MySQL, as i haven't tested
MySQL support extensively. so, please be aware that things may not be
working correctly (and let us know, so they can be fixed :-)
on the other hand, MediaWiki now supports Oracle out of the box
(including installer support).
I am running a wiki using version 1.5 and the below SQL statement outputs
the correct information. I am trying to develop the same functionality with
a wiki runiing 1.4.6. I know the database schema is different among the two
versions and I have seen the table name comparision in the mediawiki site,
but I'm still having troubles determing what table names I need to change in
the SQL statement to achive the same result. What tables in version 1.4 will
create the same SQL statement result in version 5? Any help would be greatly
"select old_text from text, page, revision where page_latest=rev_id and
rev_text_id=old_id and page_title='$pageTitle' and page_namespaced=$ns"
ok i am new to this so bare with me
