I am having a problem with the Search feature. I have checked
Mediawiki.org's Archives, and found references to my problem, but no
The issue is with using dashes & periods; hence, searching for IP
addresses returns either nothing, or all instances of IP addresses,
depending on the syntax I use.
What is the proper syntax for searching when periods or dashes are included?
Has anyone been able to sucessfully get numbered headings on specific pages
(as opposed to every page) without enabling auto-number headings in your
preferences? I just tried using extension H1_CSS, but it didn't have any
affect in IE or Firefox with MW 1.16, and I'm still too much of a newb to
figure out what the problem is.
I was wondering if somebody could direct me on where to help for the
WYSIWYG extension? I just updated my wiki to 1.16.4 and installed
this extension. It will not come up when I hit edit. It is the
standard wiki editor. Where would I go to troubleshoot this issue?
Thanks for any help you can offer me.
I want to backup mediawiki on webserver w/o shell, I learned that
mw_tools.zip from allwiki.com should be my friend.
Unfortunately allwiki.com is down and I don't know any other source.
Do you know an alternative download?
Another way of backing up without shell-access?
Thank you in advance!
I studing wikimedia system and there is something I want to know about
Is it possible to upload (and so on store) the images in different folders?
I realised that when you do a normal upload, files are stored in folders
with *arbitrary?* name like: "A", "01", etc. Does anybody know what
programming mechanism is used to allow this? Could it be used to upload
files to different folders?
How could I use the variable below, but only have it send the emails for one particular page ?
Say a page called "Team Meetings" ? What would I add to LocalSettings.php in that case ?
Thanks SO much,

Yes, set up a user account with their email address set to the distribution list, say "Notify" then use
$wgUsersNotifiedOnAllChanges = array( 'Notify' );

I don't see why you would have to log in as the user, as long as you use $wgUsersNotifiedOnAllChanges and not watchlists.

I'd like to store some pages that can't be found easily on my site. It
seems like a reasonable way to do that is to create a custom namespace for
them. The only problem is, I don't want the pages to come up in a search.
Is it possible to prevent a user from being able to add my custom namespace
to their default search list?
And if not, if anyone can suggest ways for me to do this, I'd appreciate
hearing your ideas. I'm already anticipating the answer to the question
above is no, maybe I just need to create a separate mediawiki database and
make it appear connected.
