I've been looking at the various GA extensions and can't find one that meets
my specific requirements. I need to be able to track my whole wiki, as well
as allow others to track page subsets that they're interested in tracking.
These subset users should not see GA data for the entire wiki.
Is this a scenario that anyone has encountered or could offer advice on?
I'm currently experimenting with
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Google_Analytics_Integration but it
only allows for 1 GA account number, and includes all pages in the wiki.
$wgDBtransactions gets set to true if using InnoDB tables. Is there
an advantage to using InnoDB tables?
The disadvantage is that with MySQL there is a file, ibdata1, that
seems to grow endlessly if InnoDB tables are used. See

We have been experiencing problems with MW 1.16.2 related to logged in
users on client machines where the IP address changes. I have looked over
the Bugzilla reports but could not find anything obviously related.
If a user with a laptop logs into the wiki, puts the laptop to sleep,
moves to a different location and then attempts to continue processing,
the logs show his changes mapped to an IP address (or on one of our wikis
as anonymous), rather than his user name. A simple thought experiment
suggests the cookie presented to the wiki after the laptop move has a
different IP address than the request message. This confuses MW, giving
the user all his permissions (since he is logged in), but not properly
identifying the user's name in the logs.
Has anyone else observed this and if so, are there ways to address this

Just to remind you:
* India hackathon (18–20 November, Mumbai, India) — Alolita Sharma,
Siebrand Mazeland, Sumana Harihareswara and the local India team are
preparing for this event, which will focus on language, mobile and
offline support for MediaWiki content. You can register to request a
free invitation; approximately 100-125 attendees are expected.

registration is open for the general MediaWiki hackathon planned by
Lewis Cawte. You can register online. WMF engineers Antoine Musso, Roan
Kattouw, and Sam Reed plan to attend.

I'm a mechanical engineer and I've been trying online calculations.
I'd like the ability to integrate calculators directly into wikipedia.
I think this live attribute would be a great asset to engineers. I put
an example up at
http://www.novanumeric.com/wiki/index.php/Quadratic_Formula I did that
using an iframe though. Is there a better to implement this?
We are using Mediawiki 1.15 running on LAMP infrastructure on our
corporate LAN. We have some training material in audio/video format
(MP4) which we would like to integrate into wiki pages so that users
can watch/listen those files from the wiki pages. How should we go
about doing that?
I want to be able to use the internal referrer. My current approach is
based on the URLArguments Extension, which provides a parser function to
access the URL-Parameters. Now I need to attach parameters to internal
links. Is there any possibility to attach the parameters in
wiki-language, or do I have to generate "real" links?
after upgrading from 1,6 to 1,7 im receiving the following error. Maybe
someone has an Idea?
Es ist ein Datenbankfehler aufgetreten. Der Grund kann ein Programmierfehler
sein. Die letzte Datenbankabfrage lautete:
aus der Funktion „LinksUpdate::getExistingInterwikis“. Die Datenbank meldete
den Fehler „1146: Table '********.mw_iwlinks' doesn't exist (localhost)“.
