Hi all - forgive me if this is a question with an obvious answer, but I've
not found anything close to what I'm looking for after a few searches.
I'd like a way to have the links to other pages on my wiki be accompanied
by icons indicating which category of article they belong to. I run a
genealogy wiki, and I've found that it's hard to tell whether any given
page is for a direct ancestor or a collateral relative. So, let's say I
have a page for someone named Foo, and that page links to someone named
Bar. If Bar is in the [[Category:Ancestor]] I would like the link to Bar on
Foo's page to have a little designating icon. So, you could see, in the
text on Foo's page, something like: "Foo's children include Bar <icon>, Bum
and Boozle." The icon will let the reader know that Bar is the main line to
pursue in reading, and the other links are of secondary concern.
Is this possible? Thanks,
I tried to upload a word document in mediawiki(version 1.19) page but its
giving me error :-
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in
C:\wamp\www\dashboard\includes\HttpFunctions.php on line *847
$wgEnableUploads = true;
#$wgUseImageMagick = true;
#$wgImageMagickConvertCommand = "/usr/bin/convert";*
But its not working .
Can anyone suggest me what is wrong here ??
I'm trying to find some further documentation or guidance (if any) on
site duplication and then master-slave replication.
The scenario is this:
We have 2 Wiki's, each in their own network. The first wiki is available
to our users now. The second one is a clone of the first which was made
a couple of months ago and hasn't been touched since. What I'd like to
do is have the clone be the slave and the first one be the master. I'm
thinking that the database would not contain the extensions, skins,
possibly photos, templates ? So I would have to push those over. The
clone or slave would only be for reading and not writing.
Can anyone give any guidance ?
I just did an install (via a package script on the host) of Mediawiki 1.19.1. I imported the help pages, and some templates from mediawiki.org, however the icons in the editor are missing (bold, italic, etc).
The last time I installed Mediawiki, it was manually, and the editor icons were present without any additional steps. I found the icon files on mediawiki.org and uploaded them to my new wiki, even though I have the $wgUseInstantCommons set to true. Even after uploading the files, they still do not show.
What am I missing?
Fail2ban is a nice tool for reacting against attacks.
It can look into your Apache logfiles and search strange behaviour.
You can define cases digging for in those logfiles.
And fail2ban creates rules in iptables for blocking specific addresses.
What are Mediawiki views on providing links in their Extension pages
which point to an virus/malware infected site? This Dynamic Page List
3rd party extension,
flagged as a major security risk by Mediawiki. Which oddly is proven
because the links on the Extension page to the DPL 3rd Party's Manual,
off the Mediawiki site, is infected with a virus! O My virus software
blocked it, AVG's online scanner shows it, and the site is on a
blacklist on another online URL virus scanning tool. I made an edit
noting the links are infected, but it is waiting for approval from a
Of course, I am pointing this out to a wiki admin who is using this
Extension on a documentation wiki to drop this version of DPL and use
the Foundation's version, but I think this brings up a discussion about
Extensions flagged as a security risk and why the extension's code is
still available for download? Not only from SVN, but older versions from
the infected site itself. The last update to the extension was
10-1-2009, so I would say it has been abandoned by the developers. If
this is the case, should the download links be removed?
Hello, this is probably an obvious thing to many of you, but I'm trying to write an extension that provides magic words for changing robot policy tags (nofollow, noindex) at page level (overriding $wgDefaultRobotPolicy, $wgNamespaceRobotPolicies, and $wgArticleRobotPolicies). However, I'm not sure which hook to use for adjusting the meta tags. Ultimately I would like to be able to alter the meta tags after index policies is set to the output object, but before the final html is produced. Any ideas?
