Looking through the list archives I came across the request of how to
create a "Send this to a friend" and this possible solution:
> Modify the skin with a link something like the following:
> <A HREF="mailto:?subject=the subject&body=the content you want there">
> Send to a friend</A>
> Change "the subject" to a MediaWiki function for the page title
> Change "the content you want there" to a MediaWiki function to output
> the url or the body text.
While it sounds simple enough, I don't have any experience with
MediaWiki internals to know what function to call for the page title
or to output the url or body text (body text preferred). Has anyone

I appreciate that the advice given is not to delete users. However I
have a few test users that I created that have never contributed to
Would it be safe to delete these and if so how would I go about it?
I have a wiki up and running which is restricted access. I register
individuals by use of the special:userlogin and using the 'by e-mail'
The messages that they recieve is a bit confusing i.e. the title is
"e-mail address confirmation"
and the content
Someone, probably you from IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, has registered
an account "xxxxxxxx" with this e-mail address on Wiki
To confirm that this account really does belong to you and activate
e-mail features on Wiki, open this link in your browser:
If this is *not* you, don't follow the link. This confirmation code
will expire at 17:59, 10 January 2006.
Is there any way I can customise this message to make it a bit more
I have a wiki running on a SUSE linux server, but no mails arrive, no
password mails, no confirmation mails.
If I send mail directly from a shell , that works.
Thanks in advance for your hints

Hi, I created about a dozen wikis to use as:
- draft websites
- info storage
After doing a big delete-the c drive-and-start-over, I've found it too
difficult atm to transfer the files to a new set of wikis.
But there's certain data I really need from the old files.
Does anyone know how i can read the raw data in my old wikis?
Really appreciate the help cos this data is quite important to me!
I am trying to create a google map of my site, but after trying the following
instructions, I got this error message listed bellow:
I've just follow those steps:
1) Copy the contents of http://wiki.case.edu/misc/googleSiteMap.phps to
a php file in the base MediaWiki directory.
2) Confirm it works
3) Submit a link to this php script to the Google Sitemaps service
But I get this error message:
XML Parsing Error: xml declaration not at start of external entity
Line Number 3, Column 1:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
any help would be must appreciated.
thanks a lot,

I have installed mediawiki 1.5.5, but the database which gets created does
not seem to have a "profiling" table, nor can I see any such table in the
So, where is this table defined/created?
I'd like to add two features to my wiki. First, I'd like to have content
with a certain heading or on a certain page randomly displayed in a box on
the front page. I've tried to figure out how Wikipedia does this, but I am
still learning the wikimedia software so I haven't gotten it. Second I'd
like to add an "Invite" link so that users can invite others to the site via
email, but I'm not exactly sure where to start. As yo umay have guessed,
I'm not a professional programmer, just a hobbyist : )
Any help with either of these issues would be helpful.
