My thanks for the responses to my previous enquiry, they have been very helpful.
I have another q: how can I embed a flash movie into a wiki page, if at all?
I thought that I could perhaps do this by adding <embed> to the list
of permissable HTML tags. The MediaWiki handbook suggests that I might
be able to do this in the OutputPage.php file. The code the handbook
refers to however does not appear in my own installation's copy, so I
assume changes were made in the latest version that have not been
reflected yet in the Handbook.
So, is there an easy way to include flash movies in a wiki? If not,
why not? Flash movie files are hardly a security threat.
P.S. I have a couple of gmail invites if anyone wants one :)
