I am privately hosting a public wiki (Media Wiki

The nature of the data you wish to import is unclear, as is the desired presentation.
Is this data an existing MediaWiki site? If so, I would try upgrading the existing
MediaWiki, and it should convert the data, which you can then import into the new wiki
using standard SQL techniques.
If you want to present other MySQL data alien to MediaWiki, I have an extension that may
be useful to you that allows tabular display from standard SQL statements, maintained from
within MediaWiki. It has some nice enhancements, like pagination and being able to keep a
running total, eliding long texts, and basic (non-resizing) image display. Here is an
Let me know if you want the extension and I will email it to you. I’d post it in the
MediaWiki extensions library, but I’m always working on it… :-)
