I am working to upgrade our site to 1.16.2. We have a number of minor
mods (none of which have anything to do with Special:Preferences or
Preferences.php) that I have now successfully working. However, the
Preferences page is behaving weirdly. At the top, the tabbed preferences
toc is doubled (i.e., it appears twice, one instance directly on top of
the other). If I comment out the following line in prefs.js:
prefform.parentNode.insertBefore( toc, prefform.parentNode.childNodes
the duplicate tabbled toc goes away. Everything seems to work fine, but I
don't like doing things I don't understand. (Plus, it seems that this
would mean the function tabbedprefs() is unnecessary, which is a bit
unsettling). Has anyone seen this behavior before? (I looked at Bugzilla,
but found nothing that looked pertinent).

Hi, I removed the LocalSettings.php to another folder so that eventually,
all my websites can share one common Mediawiki software, rather than
repeating it for each website.
I put the Mediawiki software in folder "Commonsoftware". How do I change the
$IP in LocalSettings so that it points to the folder "Commonsoftware"? I
tried $IP = "../Commonsoftware;" but it is not working.
I have a requirement for an intranet wiki for sales, marketing and
other people who have no technical abilities whatsoever.
I'd like to use MediaWiki. This requires WYSIWYG.
There is no good WYSIWYG for MediaWiki - but what are the least-worst
solutions others have managed with this requirement, using extensions
I can download? (e.g. your personal hacked-up CKeditor is a good
answer if you have your patch set publicly available.)
(MW 1.16, by the way, is ridiculously easy to install, notably more so
than previous versions. From being asked "could we have a wiki for
this?" to installed with happy users with ImageMagick, rsvg and
Extension:InputBox was under an hour. I'm really looking forward to
I've installed the above extension. Some text, in my sidebar and on pages show:
Is the< and> some type of markup? Should I enable something to show this markup?
(to list as well)

I shall give that a non-techie testing then!
I've installed the above extension. Some text, in my sidebar and on
*Is the < and > some type of markup? Should I enable something to
show this markup?*
I've noticed that my wiki is asking Users to login to upload a file when
that user is already logged in. This is triggered when a logged in User
adds a wikilink to an image such as [ [image:billy-bob.jpg]] to a page prior
to the image being uploaded, page is saved, and image link is clicked to
upload the file. At this point, the File Upload page appears and the User
is logged out.
Is this a known bug, as I can't seem to find it anywhere.
we are running mediawiki to document our knowledge. This works wonderful
so far and i would like to thank everyone involed in developing
mediawiki in general.
Is it possible to 'export the content of a mediawiki install and dump it
to a pdf' by using an extension or similar?
I would like to generate that pdf-dump automaticly just to have a
temporary rescue/fallback copy available in case we need some
information but might have a technical problem with the wiki-server, the
os below or similar.
1) Cron that triggers a script to export the wiki content to pdf (how ever)
2) Cron that copies the daily-snapshot to a specific network location
I am curious if other mediawiki users might have similar script
implemented. Any help/info is appreciated.
