For a couple of years I have used this type of link to bring content
into my mediawiki:
And it has always worked well.
I recently upgraded my Debian Linux Php to:
PHP Version 5.3.3-7+squeeze9
Since then This link does not work, nor do any of the others that are
formatted to this style.
Any Tips please!!
I'm wondering if there has been any suggestion to set up a template
sharing area in Mediawiki, or all Mediawiki based sites similar to
instant commons. I have noticed that there are a LOT of us , me included
that use the templates from other sites. I certainly don't have the
skill to write them myself so I usually just copy & paste them. However
if they are upgraded by the authors, I don't usually get the updates. It
seems this would be especially helpful to those maintaining translated
sites. I realize this would not work for all templates as it doesn't for
all media in commons. I use some original media & some from instant
commons. Template sharing should work just as easily, & it would assist
in growing Wikipedia more quickly.
Hello Nice People,
I would like to ask whether it is possible my two User accounts that I
have been using on the Wikimedia Projects.
If it is possible, kindly advise on the steps to follow.

On my Mediawiki installation I use some links to Wikipedia, Wiktionary,
Mediawiki; for providing completeness to some supporting but not
If I use this as the link:
I get a page that has the site logo and border instructions and menu
from my website overlaid onto the Wikipedia page. This does not happen
every time I use this type of link, only about 15% of the time.
If I use this link;
The page format is correct, but of course the Templates & links within
the transcluded page do not work.
The fact that it varies from linked content, to linked content, tells me
that there is something I am doing wrong or that there is some element
of formatting that I'm missing.
Any ideas/tips, etc.

I'm maintaining a wiki with a custom skin and since the update to
1.18.2 we miss the edit toolbar and search suggestions do not work
Btw the skin is quite old and probably needs more work to make it adhere
to the current MW standards. I've tried to find a document which lists
changes in how skins are being used in MW nowadays, but only found this
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Skinning which states it's outdated and
should not be used anymore. Is there more up-to-date information
available? Something along the lines of:
Can somebody point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance,
The MWNightly tool has been down for a while (since February, around migration to Git), so I took the liberty to write a new tool for this.
Updates hourly, even.
With Git making packages of a repository is a lot easier, but for those without command-line expertise this is still a comfort.
Source code and issue tracker online as usual (see links in the tool)
Version 1.14 MediaWiki
I need to be able to utilize "Page Protection" in my MediaWiki installation.
I have absolutely no clue how to do it and the explanations I've found via google are only confusing me.
Can someone please provide me with a step by step solution (including the why and how for each step)
The ONLY thing that I've been able to figure out so far is that I had to create a group "DrawingQuality" and assign it the "protect" right in LocalSettings.php. The group shows up in the Special:ListGroupRights mediawiki page, so I believe that is correct. I'm not sure if that group has all of the rights that they should have, however.
I want that group to be able to protect pages. If they are the ones who protect the page, I want them and only them to be able to unprotect it.
Thanks for your help,

I just threw together a simple tag extension to embed a twitter live stream search widget from
in a wiki page. It just takes the following parameters from $input:
These get dropped into a <script> that is returned. It works, but now I'm wondering what I should do to sanitize the values of title, subject, and query. I don't want to just use In the js, the values are all inside single quotes. I was thinking that I would use strip_tags combined with substituting single quotes with '
preg_replace('/\W/', '', $t)
would disallow hashtags and @'s, right?
