as a researcher, i am wondering if it is possible to add a little note into
my wiki like "this page was created on 10.01.2011"
This would be some very interesting feature. I know I see it also in the
history but as i use my wiki as a personal website, i did turn the history
Any help is highly appreciated
I try to use updateBannedIPs.sh on http://c2ilibre.free.fr, as described at
I added the line "require_once("$IP/extensions/bannedips.php");" to
"LocalSettings.php", and I put "bannedips.php" and "updateBannedIPs.sh" into
the folder "extensions". "updateBannedIPs.sh" has the rights 644, and I cannot
"updateBannedIPs.sh" works on my computer, but how to run it on the web? When
I indicate the adress "http://c2ilibre.free.fr/extensions/updateBannedIPs.sh"
in firefox, it will download the file. I use Debian/Linux.
For the moment, my wiki says:
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output

I installed the news extension
(http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:News) on MW version 1.14
and get the error message
"Fatal error : Call to a member function getPrefixedDBkey() on a
non-object" after trying to save an article with the <newsfeed> tag
Any suggestions how I can fix this?

Hey there, all.
I'm starting to investigate migrating a mediawiki instance from Fedora 7 and version 1.5.4/PHP 5.2.2/MySQL 5.0.37 to something a little more current. Naturally I'm almost a complete novice with wiki software so I'd like some ideas for where to begin my study. I'll be working through the current documentation and other thoughts are welcome.
Does anybody knows if the extension(s) with the following functions exists?
1) Move many pages prom one Category to another. Nowadays I use regex
extensions for that - those are not so handy :(
2) Block several thousands of smap users and pages they've created?
Extension:Nuke is fine if only one user created many smap pages, but usually
spammers create many accounts.
Thank a lot!

What does that mean and how can I get rid of it ?
I just installed mediawiki on a new site. I've used it on other servers before and never encountered this problem.
For some reason, i get "Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unknown error.", when i try to enter a new url (/index.php?title=asd). This seem to be similar to the problem described here:
I cannot for the life of me figured out what the problem is. I reinstalled from scratch, without any customizations, so this has to be a server config problem. It's not my server, but my guess it that it probably something I can fix by changing some php option in my .htaccess.
Anyone have a good idea?

I just created a new wiki at http://linuxlea.free.fr/linux/wiki. Is seems to
work, but I can't create an account. Error message is

canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Go back to the previous

Of course I tried to do that, but it does not work.
It also tells me : "You must have cookies enabled to log in to Linuxlea."
But in Firefox 3.6.3 under Debian Squeeze, there is no option for cookies in
privacy tab. So I tried with Konqueror, cookies enabled, but I obtain the same
I'm using a Mediawiki/IIS/AD implementation and would like to accomplish
the following via Microsoft Active Directory:
* Single Sign On
* Synchronisation between MediaWiki groups and AD Groups (For
example, I want myself, and people in my department from security
group to have full, administrative access)
* At a later date (but not urgent right now) disable anonymous
access, and have private and public wiki sections.
I know what a lot of people are going to say.... "google it". I have,
but there are many different configuration settings and examples for
different versions of the plugin and different versions of mediawiki,
I've yet to have any success with them, hence why I'm now asking here.
Below is what I've got so far, but it's not a lot. I've disabled
anonymous access via IIS and enabled windows authentication, but I'm not
getting any single sign on functionality. However, if anyone has
accomplished at least the first two objectives listed above and would be
able to provide me with a "template" of their config (sensitive data
obviously omitted) then I would really appreciate it.
