I am running Mediawiki 1.22.2, PHP 5.46, MySQL 5.5.27 on Ubuntu 12.10.
When I setup the Wiki I was able to change the logo to a new one. I then
edited the Main Page and now the logo is gone. The logo does appear from
time to time on different pages but no longer appears when I go to my main
page. Any pointers on how to correct this.I have tested this on MSIE 11 and
Chrome Version 34 (latest at this time) on Windows 7.

I was importing an xml file that a user sent me created by an older wiki 1.6.5.
The import appeared to be successful, is said so, and it said there were 7 revisions.
When I view the page in MW 1.22.2, it is blank.
PHP is unhappy, as indicated below. Any ideas ?

There's been discussions before about being able to share code style
settings between MediaWiki users for PhpStorm. To this end, I've started a
PhpStorm plugin  that adds this functionality, allowing preferences to be
set from a MediaWiki predefined style. Thanks to Siebrand and Physikerwelt
for their example configurations.
There is also functionality to search MediaWiki.org for selected text using
the context menu.
It can be installed using the inbuilt plugin manager in PhpStorm.
More functionality to come, somewhat emulating the Wordpress plugin . I
imagine the Hook support would be quite useful for many people too.
Code is currently on github , maybe should be moved to gerrit sometime in
the future. Pull requests and issues happily accepted.
As we all know, Gerrit doesn't have the best interface, but even more so,
it's not very mobile friendly. There is however mGerrit  for Android
which does a nice job.
Also, we're not in the list of default "supported" Gerrit instannces (yes, I
know WikiMedia is in CamelCase, this is already reported and fixed
If you've any issues with the software emailing the developer directly is
quite good at yielding responses.
Hi -- I've created some custom namespaces, and they appear in the
Namespace dropdown of the Special:All Pages page, but when I create a
page in the namespace, it only appears in the Main namespace.
For example: let's say there's a namespace called The Shapers World.
I'm able to create a page called The_Shapers_World:Home, and it
appears in the browser address bar as /The_Shapers_World:Home... but
when I look at Special:All Page, it only shows up under the Main
Further, if I filter the All Pages list to just The Shapers World,
after I click GO, no pages are listed AND the following appears:
Display Pages Starting At: The Shapers World:The Shapers World:
Display Pages Ending At: The Shapers World:The Shapers World:
I'm not sure what I've done wrong!

I've been having some issues with the mediawiki site I run (& just
updated) pulling & displaying .svg files from commonswiki. Other formats
seem to work & not all .svg files are causing this issue. Seems they are
polled but no thumbnails or images are actually displayed om the wiki
site web pages. I've had a few responses to the more generalized issues
of not being able to upload files as well. But, so far I'm not sure what
is the issues. I have reverted back my LocalSettings.php to include
> $wgEnableUploads = true;
> $wgUseImageMagick = true;
> $wgUseImageResize = true;
> $wgImageMagickConvertCommand = "/usr/bin/convert";
> #$wgSVGConverter = 'ImageMagick';
> $wgSVGConverter = 'rsvg';
> $wgSVGConverterPath = "/usr/bin/";
I've tried using ImageMagick, & inkscape also, but I get the same result.
My MediaWiki reference book, "Working with MediaWiki", was first released
in November 2012; and I don't have to tell anyone on these lists that there
have been a lot of changes to MediaWiki and its extensions since then -
updated interfaces and skins, marked improvements to extensions like
VisualEditor and Scribunto, and new extensions like CirrusSearch and
Bootstrap. I'm happy to announce that I just released a "2nd printing" of
Working with MediaWiki, updated for 2014. It has an updated cover (now with
a matte finish, if you get the physical book!), and lots of updated text
and images - about 25% of the pages have had some sort of change.
