I tried to add to my wiki (Mediawiki version 1.6; PHP 5.1.2) the
CharInsert-extension. I did the following:
1) Created a CharInsert.php-file in /extensions/CharInsert (copy-paste
3) Changed Mediawiki:Edittools to put in the charinsert-tags and other
wiki-code like in wikipedia in order to adapt the text beneith the
edit-box and give users the possibility to easily add special
characters. (I have to tell that in my wiki-setup,
$wgUseDatabaseMessages = false;).
4) Added require_once("$IP/extensions/CharInsert/CharInsert.php"); to
...unfortunately this returned a completely blank page, unless i
changed "require_once" into "include" (as is suggested on other
sites). Then the wiki was viewable again in the browser, but the
CharInsert-stuff still didn't work. So i tried to put the textmessages
with special characters into the copyrightwarning in messages.php (as
is also suggested on some sites), but unfortunately the text is not
parsed (the <charinsert>-tags are still there instead of being parsed).
I really can't see what i am doing wrong here. Does anyone have any idea
what should do the trick?
Thanks in advance!
after porting an existing wiki-installation from OpenBSD to Windows Server 2003
we have got the problem that files with german special characters aren't
Just an example:
I uploaded the file "test_ö_ä_ü_Ö_Ä_Ü_ß.jpg". No error message is shown and when
the link below the upload-success-message (Test_ö_ä_ü_Ö_Ä_Ü_ß.jpg (12KB,
image/jpeg) ) is clicked, this is the result:
The requested URL /wiki/images/e/eb/Test_Ã¶_Ã¤_Ã¼_Ã–_Ã„_Ãœ_ÃŸ.jpg was not found
on this server.
The file on the (NTFS-)filesystem is named "Test_Ã¶_Ã¤_Ã¼_Ã–_Ã„_Ãœ_ÃŸ.jpg".
I already tried to change
$wgLegalTitleChars = " %!\"$&'()*,\\-.\\/0-9:;=?@A-Z\\\\^_`a-z~\\x80-\\xFF";
$wgLegalTitleChars = " %!\"$&'()*,\\-.\\/0-9:;=?@A-Z\\\\^_`a-z~";
to disable the last 127 ASCII characters (also including ö, ä, ü, Ö, Ä, Ü, ß).
With this change, I can avoid that persons can upload files with those
characters. Those characters will be replaced by "-". But -of course- it also
isn't possible to create articles with special characters anymore, which is
On my Windows Server 2003 I am running
Apache 2.0.55 (Win32)
I would be very pleased if someone can help and tell me how I can provide this
wiki with the ability to use german special characters on Windows Server 2003.
Thank you in advance,
I am trying to install the CharInsert extension, but I'm having trouble
locating CharInsert.php. All the links I've found point to
http://cvs.sourceforge.net, which is not working.

I have installed FCKeditor on a test server and instance of my wiki and I'm
having a generally good experience with it thus far.
In some respects I'd prefer not to use it, but my managers are kind of
pushing for it so I'm stuck having to deliver some kind of WYSIWYG option to
In any case, when reading over the page for the extension on Meta there are
warnings about data corruption that may result from using the editor. I
understand that it will break standard wiki formatting, but I am more
concerned about the integrity of my database. I wouldn't expect it to be a
concern, but I want to be certain so I can reassure everyone. Has anyone
here ever experienced any kind of database corruption from using this
Is anyone using any kind of caching system on 1.7.1?
We used eaccelerator on 1.5.x and it worked perfectly.
When I upgraded to 1.7.1, I noted that the stable release of eaccelerator
did not work with php 5.x.
I followed the instructions to build the svn version 0.9.6 (260.svn)
Everything seems to work ok except the login section.
The login page returns:
Fatal error: Cannot access parent:: when no class scope is active in
/var/www/html/includes/SkinTemplate.php on line 108
I know I'm way out on a limb here, bleeding edge and all, but has anyone
gotten over this?
What (if any) is everyone else using instead of eaccelerator?
Articles like AIM, MSN, Yahoo etc. in the main namespace, search
function works perfect.
After create the namespace plugin (includes the chhange in
wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault), move the articles and remove the
plugin:AIM, plugin:MSN, plugin:Yahoo
Surprise! Search for AIM or MSN not work any longer, search for Yahoo
So is there everywhere a minimum for the search for custom namespace?
Or whats going wrong ?
Another point is that "Go" button its possible to change somewhere that
this button works for two namespace, main and plugin ?

I created a category(Category:HowTo) in my mediawiki and had one page
tagged to it. Then I wanna delete the page Category:HowTo when an
error accoured. It said:
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 "Article::doDeleteArticle". MySQL returned error
"1364: Field 'ar_text' doesn't have a default value (localhost)".
Anyone knows what was wrong? Thanks a lot.
