when I recognized that most of my wiki pages had not been indexed by Google, I
to Mediawiki:Sidebar (my wiki is configured to german). A couple of days later
all pages have been indexed properly. Maybe this is an acceptable workaround
for the other people reporting that Google doesn't find their wikis.

In order to prevent showing the namespace on the category page, i changed
"$title = Title::makeTitle( $x->page_namespace, $x->page_title );" into
"$title = Title::makeTitle( $x->page_title, $x->page_title );" in
I'm using Mediawiki 1.6.8. Hope that helps...
My WikiSpeller Extension stopped working yesterday, it's been in place
doing a great job for a few weeks now working fine however.
Nothing has been changed whatsoever, just day-to-day wiki use.
Is anyody else aware of an issue with this extension or does anyone
have any possible solutions as how to fix it?
Thank you in advance,

So your approach would be using the Wiki as a kind of knowledge base rather than a collaboration tool?! (Although, of course, the one doesn't exclude the other.)
The problem I see there is that the individual employee usually doesn't really have much of a stake in such a knowledge base (what does he care about a possible successor... ). So why should he contribute (if there's be no obligation to make use of the wiki)?!
Therefore I'm trying to convey it as a tool that makes collaboration a lot easier - after all, who ain't sick of sending MS Office documents back and forth...

It's not secretive (for the most part), but people are quite busy with their regular tasks and thus reluctant to take on new ones (like documenting their work - see above).

Well, I picked MediaWiki 'cause it's supposedly easy to set up - which, for the basics at least, is true.
I might look into the ones you've mentioned though.

Hehe, maybe at a later time, when I actually do have some experience in this matter...

It is possible to view in the list of recent changes whether a
specific version of a page has been patrolled or not. Unfortunately,
when a user visits a page and goes to the page history, he/she cannot
see which versions of that specific page has been patrolled or not.
Does anyone know how it is possible to show the same
"patrolled-or-not"-specifications in the form of a red exclamation
mark (like in the recent changes list) in the page history? I am using
Thanks in advance for any help!
Is there any extension to allow article rating? To maintain a high quality
Wiki, I want our users to rate articles, so the poorly rated articles can
be brought upto spec.
Seems an obvious extension, surprised I can't find one.
I did see reference to: $wgUseValidation in a post on the mailing list, but
this does not seem to be in MediaWiki 1.8.2, despite the manual saying it's
not been deprecated...
Confused, I am...

I would like to know, how quality can be/is checked automatically in wikipedia. Is a robot been used, in order to "mark" (with a traffic light for example) content which has not been reviewed or checked yet, or has it to be done by hand? If so, is there any plan in order to do it automatically??
Thank you very much in advance.

Google is checking all the Difference links and the histories - which it does not need to because this puts unnecessary load on the server. Is there any way to stop this? I'm not sure what to specify in the Robots.txt file.
