A group of people and I recently started using Mediawiki for a large
set of study notes. We started with the standard installation, users began
creating content, etc. I then took my first stab at editing
localsettings.php to restrict user privileges. Ever since doing so, all of
the content that had been created is no longer visible.
I have tried going back and commenting out the lines in
localsettings.php that I remember modifiying, but the content remains
Can anyone help? There is a large group of people who are ready to kill
me because they think I erased all of their content. I sincerely hope that
this is not the case!
I planing migrate mi local offline wikipedia to another more powerfull server it have centos5.2 x64 installed by now

Hi, I was just wondering... supposing I decide to fix my skin width.
What would be the ideal width? 800px or 1024? The reason why I ask is
I do not know what width I should set for my top banner. If I have a
choice, I rather prefer to have a flexible width that fills up any
browser up to 1024px. But then again, how about the banner? Won't it
look awful if I set it at 1024px according to my present screen
resolution and someone uses another resolution?

I created a simple parser function that inserts a one line div into the
page. It worked as expected except in the case where it was the first bit of
wikitext in the article. In that case, the parser inserted <p><br/></p> into
the page just before the div creating an ugly gap that wasted space. I then
discovered that if I wrote <nowiki></nowiki> just before my parser function
that this paragraph block was ommitted and I got the expected behavior. So I
ended up wrapping my parser function in a template of the same name that
also inserts the nowiki code, and voila, problem "solved." !
I have recently downloaded the CetegoryTree Extension and also been working on the show/hide buttons and capabilities documented.
Whilst these two are perfect when working correctly I have Java Issues. When trying to expand the views in the tree view they do not expand. Also the show hide doesn't work, content is always show which lead me to believe their is a Java issue. I have downloaded the latest version of Java from Sun and ensured it is enabled in the browser but still no joy?
Does anyone have any pointers?

Is there a way to force a template to use the literal value of a
parameter instead of the parsed result?
For example, if I pass [[Main Page]] to a template, I want it to
output that text, not a hyperlink to the Main Page of the wiki.
My workaround now is to add <nowiki></nowiki> in the call to the
template, but that defeats my purpose: I want the template to be able
to display both the literal text as the processed text. This forces me
to pass two parameters, one with and one without the <nowiki></nowiki>
If you use <tt><nowiki>[[Main Page]]</nowiki></tt>, it will show up as
BTW: The Wiki is at version 1.11.0 at the moment.

I'm an enthusiast in MediaWiki Development and I'm having some troubles
starting off. I have been administering MediaWiki installation on my website
for quite some time
but for the past 4 days I'm struggling to get a hack. Please help me out.
I've read the material given in the Manual, How to Become a MediaWiki
Hacker, how to Debug and all the other relevant pages related to
Till now, I've tried the following, but the wiki on my localhost functions
as though no changes have taken place (I've not tried all this on my website
1) Applied the first hack given on
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Customizing_edit_toolbar [not even the table
2) Set the predicate (preg_match) to zero in Parser.php (689) [it still
parses it as a table]
3) removed all the content of index.php !! [it runs]
and a lot of things were tried out, but no success. However, wiki does
respond when I switch off the MySql service or move a file (such as
I've not had any progress due to this unexpectedly weird stuff going on.
Please give a hint or a pointer in the right direction.
I have just installed mediawiki at my site and I would like to use LDAP authentication in order to centralize user management.
We have a LDAPs server up and running and I am trying to use LDAP authentication extension (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:LDAP_Authentication).
The system is a Fedora Core 10 on a x86_64
I have followed the instruction on the web, at least I think so, and can't login with a valid LDAP user.
I ahve enabled LocalSettings.php in order to get debug info with:
but the debug.log file is not created
The configuration in LocalSettins.php is:
require_once( "$IP/extensions/LdapAuthentication/LdapAuthentication.php" );
$wgAuth = new LdapAuthenticationPlugin();
$wgLDAPDomainNames = array( "domain" );
$wgLDAPServerNames = array( "domain" => "127.0.0.1" );
#$wgLDAPPasswordHash = array ( "domain" => "ssl" );
$wgLDAPSearchStrings = array( "domain" => "uid=USER-NAME,ou=People,dc=genomica,dc=imppc,dc=org");
$wgLDAPSearchAttributes = array( "domain" => "uid" );
$wgLDAPBaseDNs = array( "domain" => "dc=domain,dc=foo,dc=org" );
$wgLDAPEncryptionType = array( "domain" => "ssl" );
I am quite lost at the moment and don't know what have to do next.
Thanks in advance
