Is there anyway to restrict access to category using user groups.
One more i have added the user groups in DB manually,but the user groups are
not shown in user right management list box
I am not so experienced in MediaWiki, so sorry, maybe a stupid
On our server we are using MediaWiki 1.6.10 because of PHP4. I
realized that the user can create new account just typing username
(i.e. leaving other field empty, including password!). Then he/she is
able to login and edit pages. That's I need to avoid.
I would like to configure my MediaWiki in this way: while creating an
account the user need to fill *all* items (username, password and
e-mail). Then he/she must confirm it from e-mail account. Then he/she
can login and edit pages on wiki...
Thanks for any hits...

What is the easiest way to delete all articles.

pictures for a commons like wiki. Therefore i have to delete all
articles within that existing wiki.
Does there exist allready a script (php or sql) ?
I need a bit of advice. I'm going to give a demo about
mediawiki to a few people used to deal with WYSIWYG
type of editors. They are all smart enough to pick up
wikitext no problem, but I'd like to be able to mention
a few reasons about why they will have to deal with
wikitext directly and not its formatted representation.
A few people who have gone through the same transition
have told me that there is a bit of an initial code-phobia
obstacle to overcome and I'd like to motivate the newcomers
to go through that first obstacle to enjoy what's on the other
If your search word is "Wiki" and if you press "Go", mediawiki will
search for the page titled "Wiki". If that page exists, that will be
displayed. Otherwise, search screen will be displayed.
If you click the "Search" button, instead of "Go", MW will search for
the word "wiki" in all the articles and display the search results.

After scouring the mediawiki.org site, I can't seem to find any way to
add/manage dublin core metadata for my pages. I found something about
RDF, but it seems both still in development, and not particularly
friendly to implement/use.
Surely *someone* had come up with a solution for this?
Any assistance appreciated.
