I tried to install three wiki instances on the same server, using same
extension file resources.
Following the advice at
kis_sharing_common_resources I declared a new variable
Including extensions this way works very well for most of it.
But for some extensions, I found that they use additional path variables
to their files internally, which refer to "extensions/ExtensionName"
Of course, this makes it hard to maintain proper inclusion/update of
such extensions, because the internal variables have to be patched.
So it would be nice, if MediaWiki introduces a common "$wgExtensionPath"
Then extension developers can use this variable as basic extension
directory path and wiki administrators can change it as needed very
Hi, I have never uploaded any video files because it is rather big, compared
to video files. Now that I am into unlimited hosting, I just wanted to test
this feature out. I tried to upload a .mpg video file that is about 2.65MB
in size. The uploading was a breeze but how do I display the video? Do I

I really like MediaWiki's watchlist, but it sucks if you
don't have the time to use it every 30 days or x edits or
don't like the edits partitioned by day (which is inconve-
nient for both inter- and intra-day use).
So, the natural idea would be to extract the list of
watched pages, feed them to a local database, then, from
time to time, for every page find the last revision of the
page prior to the last visit, find the current revision,
execute a browser with the diff link if the two revisions
are different and, on success, update the time of the last
visit with the time of the current revision in the database
(saving timestamps instead of revision numbers to deal with
the possibility of deleted revisions).
Seems straightforward and not much work, but before I
script it, is anyone aware of someone who has already done
