I agree with Jim. Only line 192 is required in LocalSettings.
Other instructions stated in INSTALL file of magpierss package are
for the developer of calling script (i.e. Alxndr must - and he did -
follow these instructions in his own script to call magpierss).

promis et celas aliusque et idem

We have a problem with file uploading on one of our wikis. After
clicking "Upload file" the wiki displays:
Article title: Internal error
Message: Could not find file "C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\phpF4.tmp". (sometimes
"phpFC" or some other variation)
The problem is intermittent, so if we retry it about ten times it
PHP: 5.2.3 (isapi)
Windows Server 2003 and IIS 6.0
Extensions: PasswordReset, SpecialInterwiki, wikicalendar
I realise that this is possibly a Windows/IIS problem. It's difficult to
investigate because it doesn't occur all the time. We use lots of images
so it causes a big headache.
I'd appreciate any pointers on what I should be looking for....
Why don't you tell me how to use it?

There's no documentation to speak of, just the sourcce code. I wouldn't
really recommend it unless you're sure you know what you're doing. :)

I have set up a small wiki and in general it's working as expected. I
wanted to copy a template from Wikipedia to use on my site. I went to
the page for the template
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infobox_Person) and clicked on
[edit this page]. First question: Do I want the whole thing or just the
bits between the includeonly tags?
Down at the bottom of the page is a section that says "Pages transcluded
onto the current version of this page:" with a list of 17 templates
(including the one I'm on, oddly enough). Do I need to get all those in
order for this template to work on my wiki? I assume I'll need to
follow some of these dependencies or will this list cover everything?
I assume I just go to http://mysite/index.php/Template:Infobox_Person,
click on the link to create a new page and past the code copied from
Wikipedia. Is that right?
Am I missing anything or should that be enough? That's what I
tried and it doesn't seem to have been enough but if it SHOULD be, then
it's operator error.
Sorry for the beginner's question. The documentation for copying
templates from another site is a bit thin.

Subject: Overweight Wiki Page
To: library <Library(a)lists.laptop.org>, devel(a)lists.laptop.org
I've got a couple variations on a way overweight wiki page.
It began as a MS Word file, and it's been through Open Office,
shell, sed, perl, awk, python and the result is not too shabby.
Should publish it, but really ought to rewrite it all in python first.
Is there a way to use the command line to open a .doc file in
Open Office and save it as html an can add to my polyglot
assortment of scripts, in the meantime?
The first version at:
WARNING: This page is 246 kilobytes long; some browsers may have
problems editing pages approaching or longer than 32kb. Please
consider breaking the page into smaller sections.
I've been looking at breaking it up and reassembling it using
templates and there is a partial version at:
Is there a easy way to transfer all 70 some pieces at once,
instead of doing them one at a time using
But wait that's only for Images not for Pages.
And when the templates all get reassembled it's going to
be just as big, if not a little bigger.
What I really need is a syntactic variant, that builds a
combined Table of Contents, but does not put all the
pieces together into a combined wiki page, the links
in the Table of Contents take you the right spot in
one of the component pages.
Does that capability exist, or am I just dreaming?
Seems like it would only take tweaking a few lines of code.
But where are they?
* All we want to do is suppress output of the combined page.
* And, use the original instead of the trasformed link in the TOC.
I'm new at this and don't have the jargon down. I know I should
have transclude several times, but I am not yet fluent with wikimedia
