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're holding a Wikimedia and MediaWiki hackathon in six weeks: 14-16
October in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
Please come! It'll be a blast. :-)
We want to get together a wide variety of contributors -- including
template, script, tool, extension, and gadget writers -- to participate,
give feedback, test, and hack with us. If you hack MediaWiki, or write
software that uses the MediaWiki API, or runs on the Toolserver, other
developers want to chat and collaborate with you.
At the event, MediaWiki developers and Wikimedia operations engineers
will be working on Wikimedia's gadgets/extensions/tools support,
general training and hacking, etc. And we'll improve and discuss the
Wikimedia Labs projects infrastructure
and other stuff that makes it easier for anyone to supercharge MediaWiki
The event is open to anyone who wants to come and contribute, and is an
opportunity to spend time with senior MediaWiki developers & ops
engineers, write beautiful code, and learn about the latest
developments. We'll write code together, discuss the software, and hold
If you can make it to New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, 14-16 October 2011,
we'd love to have you. Please add your name to the attendees list:
(And please spread the word!)
Thanks and best wishes.

Sorry if this is a newbie question. I've not done my research.
If I want to drastically change the appearance and have new types of navigation on the site and what not, I think I can do that but I need to update that template or theme every time there's an update to the Mediawiki software - this is what I had learned a while ago but it may not be true any longer.
Or is there an easier way to plugin a theme and have it work even after updates? Is this the right thing to check out?
Been some things floating around about this already, but I'm proud to announce Brighton Wikimedia Hackathon.
MediaWiki developers are going to meet in Brighton on the South East coast of the United Kingdom to hack anything to do with Wikimedia projects (mediawiki, toolserver, pywikipedia and various other things.) I've been putting this together for a while, with a lot of help from Roan, Reedy, Sumana and various others, and the date has now been confirmed for the 19th and 20th of November 2011 (unfortunatly, it clashes with WikiConference India). If you're intending to come, please add your name here, just so we can start getting an idea of how many people are coming:
I'll be adding more details as they become available, as well as a registration form.

I am using Lucene-search 2.1.3 as the search engine for my MediaWiki 1.16, and using MWSearch to fetch the results.
It has been working well, but all of sudden, for newly added pages, I can only search for keywords from their page titles. If I search for keywords only from those newly added pages' conntents, I get 0 result.
There is no problem if I search for any old pages.
It seems the Lucene-search only indexes page titles, and doesn't index the new page contents any more.
Any idea would be appreciated,
Hi wiki guys!
How do I update mediawiki on a shared webhosting? I dont have a shell.
Please dont point me to these websites who are describing "Yeeee, rename the
localsettings and run the installation process again" (like seen here:
So it would be very nice, if someone could give some hints what I need to do
step by step on a shared webhosting package without shell access.
Thanks in advance
