I am Akshit (Co-Founder of Wibe), we have made a Chrome Extension by which
anyone will be able to watch relevant YouTube videos corresponding to the
Wiki Article they are reading.
It is the deadly combination of Wikipedia and YouTube, it can really become
a great new feature of Wikipedia. We developed it to solve our problem of
switching to YouTube from Wiki to understand a particular thing.
I would be very thankful if you guys please try and review it. Then if you
like Wibe, consider it to integrate as a functionality in Wikipedia for
some days so that user can use and review this new feature.
*Demo Video*: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98uDPo7ZjVI
Install the Extension and then try out "
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:About" page to see how it changes
the original wiki page by integrating relevant videos from YouTube.

My site zh.moegirl.org got lots of random *(null)* error when varnish
enabled. The error message and only error message is no repeat *(null)*.
Anyone have idea? How to solve this problem?

I filed a bug to track a proposal sent earlier to another list:
Which comes with a question for you all wiki admins:
> What wikis are using this [slashes in titles] on namespaces that do
> sub-pages *and* would cause problems if sub-pages were enabled?

we try to use open Authorization on our wiki. We first started with OpenID,
but then we suddenly realized that the big players like Google won't
support this protocol any longer.
So we want to move over to OAuth2.0, but the only extension we found so far
is SocialLogin, which seems not to work under MW 1.23 anymore, according to
its talk page and to our own experience :-(
Does anybody of you has either SocialLogin brought up to work or do you
have any other extension in mind which would allow an OAuth2.0 login to
support accounts from Google, Facebook etc.?
many thanks in advance & best regards
I have about 400 pages in a wiki I'm administering that use
syntaxhighlighting using the old <code lang="lang">some code
here</code> method provided by and extension called
I'd like to remove the old extension and use SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi
going forward. To do this, I need to replace:
<code lang="lang"> with <syntaxhighlight lang="lang">
</code> with </syntaxhighlight>
Using the ReplaceText extension is one possibility, but I keep ending
up with a problem when <code></code> is used, as the closing tag gets
replaced and breaks the formatting.
Is there some magic regular expression that can do this? I'm working
through these pages manually right now.

We've been using PostForm.php, but the spambots quickly found it and inundated us. We renamed all such pages with "_(hidden)" appended and removed the automatic #REDIRECT with a page that tells the user to put "_(hidden)" after the URL -- not exactly very user-friendly.
Forms without a CAPTCHA are nothing but trouble.

There has been a persistent bug in mediawiki for at least two years that
has gone unfixed and ignored. Right now when a page's protection status is
updated the link tables associated with it are not refreshed. Depending on
the configuration/use case of a wiki such a failure is problematic.
(Example I have a namespace for a specific type of articles and they all
share a template that dumps the page into one of two categories, reviewed
and not reviewed categories. When a page is reviewed its also protected,
however mediawiki fails to update the link tables)
This issue has been documented for about two and a half years (see
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34039 ) I poked the bug
about a year ago when I noticed this issue on my wiki. Given the complete
lack of a response on bugzilla Im trying here. It shouldnt be that big of a
deal to purge/refresh the link tables of the current page when its
Can we please get the ball rolling on this issue?
