My Question is, If MediaWiki does not support any WYSIWYG editor, then would
it be not hard for editors to post their material using this Wiki ?
How does a lame user fnid his way around MediaWiki's Syntax ?
There has to be some other alternative.
I read on Wikipedia :
*"* <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki>* Media Wiki has a partial,
(kind of a special MediaWiki 1.5.3 experimental version
* + **FCKeditor* <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FCKeditor>* )support
page editing* <http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WYSIWYG_editor>*"*
Can someone guide me as why WYSIWYG was not included in Mediawiki and still
is not ?
What alternative do i have if my requirement is strongly focused on a wiki
supporting WYSIWYG .
Just a notification of a schedule shift:
Since there's still some pretty heavy development activity going on, I'm
going to go ahead and delay the 1.11.0 release until mid-August, after
the Wikimania conference.
This'll give us a chance to iron out the new upload improvements and
other little goodies still going on.
We're definitely interested in feedback from the 1.10.1 point release as
far as installer compatibility -- if there are any problems we'll want
to know to make sure 1.11.0 fixes them.

Sorry, I'm actually running 1.10.1.

Subject: [Mediawiki-l] MediaWiki 1.10.0 -> "You have not specified a
I just installed MediaWiki 1.10.0 last week on a new Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
server running Apache 2.0.55, PHP 5.1.6, mySQL
Everything was working fine last week and this weekend until Sunday,
when it became impossible for any users to login, including WikiSysop.
The following error message comes up:
Login error: You have not specified a valid user name.
This happened to me before on an old box, so I got a new box and did a
new server install on it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How do I download the entire current text content (no images, no page
histories) of a MediaWiki that I don't own/administer?
I know about Special:Export, but that requires a list of specific
pages and doesn't accept "*" as a wild card.
I could combine Special:Allpages and Special:Export with a script or
something somehow, but is there a better way?

I want to be able to use my mediawiki installation through my Iceweasel
browser but that it accepts connections from localhost only. What is the
prefered way to configure it so?
Preferably I would like to move "/mediawiki" out of "/var/www"
altogether, and instead access it like this: "file:///home/tommy/wiki/".

Is it possible to overload methods in a user defined skin in order to
restyle elements which appear in the article content?
I'm trying to get buttons and textfields to match the rest of my skin
and need to put an additional <span> element in certain links
[like the section  link].
Otherwise I'm willing to change the code for mediawiki itself [but
for the section  link for now I haven't been able to even
locate where it is,
Thanks for any suggestion.
I want to modify my page layout so that an article are divided into sections, each with a heading that can't be modified (like "main article," "main points" and "sources").
Each article section should then have an "edit" tab.
What is the best way to accomplish this?
I have been trying to do this myself and looking everywhere but can't seem to find and answer.
any help appreciated!
