that's about FCK editor and what I have understood about one thread
concerning this topic.
On a recent discussion the only one argument against it to be employed was a
trick on history pages wich would cause the loss of its edit history because
the html code would make all page content new, thus making difficult the
office editor adoption.
However, I've saw that the new entries are shown in red letters. This
feature allows keeping track of any contribution, isn't it?
What do you think?

I've set up MediaWiki on our intranet. I'd like to be able to link to files
(on a shared network resource) without having to upload them to the wiki
For example, I'd like to be able to link to \\stewie\engineering$\notes.txt
I've tried [\\stewie\engineering$\notes.txt Notes] and
[file:///\\stewie\engineering$\notes.txt Notes] Neither creates the
functionality I'm looking for.
Ich habe einige Probleme mit Dateien die ein Umlaut enthalten.
Wir haben unser Wiki von einem Server auf einen neuen Umgezogen. Dabei haben wir auch das Wiki mal geupdatet. Die Datenbank blieb auf einem anderen Server daran wurde nichts gemacht. Nur die Updates die MediaWiki selbst gemacht hat.
Dateien die Umlaute enthielten wurden zuerst nicht angezeigt aber nach ein paar Konfigänderungen ging es dann.
Nun werden die Dateinamen richtig angezeigt. Aber obwohl die Datei im Dateisystem vorhanden ist und auch in der Liste der Hochgeladenen Dateien auftaucht sagt mir Mediawiki nach einem Klick auf die Datei sie wäre nicht da. In der Liste der hochgeladenen Dateien funktioniert aber der Link zum direkten runterladen der immer in Klammern hinter der Datei ist.
Auch die Anzeige auf welchen Seiten die Datei benutzt wird geht.
Doch immer wenn ich auf die Datei klicke in MediaWiki sagt er als Fehlermeldung : "Eine Datei mit diesem Namen existiert nicht, du kannst sie jedoch hochladen."
Hat jemand eine Idee?
This release contains a security bugfix for users of register_globals.
Most configuration options in the extension did not have default
values; this release sets defaults for all configuration globals.
Users are recommended to update to this version, or disable
register_globals. If you do not have register_globals enabled, you are

Thank you, Sean, for the files.
I have installed them, configured as suggested, and I can see the Special:EditUser page, but I get the HTTP 500 error as long as I go to the Special:EditUser/username page or search from Special:EditUser.

Took this offlist, but here are the four files I have in production. As far as I can tell, I've made no changes. They just need to go into "extensions/EditUser", and I think you know how it works from there.
As far as configs go, I just have:
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['edituser'] = true;

Some user's accounts don't have their real names. Instead, they just have usernames.
I'd like to edit those user's accounts to put their real names, but I couldn't find a way to do it.
Is there a way to do it, or do I have to install an extenstion and which?
I know we quite often get asked what IDE to use for PHP, and there's
mixed reviews and results. And not many solutions
As such, JetBrains have recently released PHPStorm , and offer an
"open source license" (free license for open source projects, and I
have applied for and received one for the MediaWiki team. It's valid
for unlimited users, so any developer can have one.
>From this end, I've got a couple of queries. How can I distribute it
(to those who want it)? Obviously, I can't just post it on a wiki
page. Maybe OTRS or something? (To make it manageable)
Also, they've requested we put a banner/similar onto a page. They
suggested I think, the Developer Hub . Is this ok with people?
Something along the lines of an acknowledgement, and a logo, but I'll
get them to clarify it.
People can email me for a copy of the license, till we get something
"more manageable", and I'll distribute it from there. I'd be
interested to see peoples views overall. I know their ReSharper and
dotTrace are very well recieved (of which I agree) in the .NET
community, so this should hopefully be of similar calibre.
I'm asking for a friend who's English is even more worse than mine.
Is there any knowledge about the disk space a Mediawiki installation
needs? More special:
1. Is every revision saved? Meaning: if I change a slash into a
backslash in a text of 12 kB is the space needed changing to 24 KB?
And if I change a "then" to a "than" ist it changing to 36 kB than?
2. If I delete an article as an administrator, is it really wiped off the disk?
Thanks in advance,
Hi all, some months ago I installed MediaWiki locally for personal use.
Now I'm trying to migrate my existing MediaWiki installation to a
new machine, but I found a problem.
I used the `maintenance/dumpBackup.php` and `maintenance/importDump.php`
scripts to transfer textual content from one database to another,
and I copied over the images/ folder, containing all the uploaded files;
the problem is that the new MediaWiki instance seems not be able
to recognize them, since for example, the Special:Newimagespage is empty
and existing links to media files in articles are broken.
Now my question is: what's the right way, if one, to import all the
uploaded files into the new installation, possibly without losing all
files' metadata information (as their descriptions) and restoring links
in articles ?
Thanks in advance for any answer.
Is it possible for an extension to set a page as "protected"? I have a tag that
displays help info for my extension, I'd like to drop it in a page, and have the
tag set the page as protected via a parameter. The idea is to allow the tag to
display its output but have the page be protected from editing.
Thanks for any advice, much appreciated.
