I did indeed, as per the
instructions at the WorkingWiki site. I have
been advised by the author that it is actually not necessary, but for
now the damage is already done, so I will just leave it& clean up the
I would appreciate any advice as to which way is best...context
sensitive or not. It wont matter once I get finished using templates
built by others that I've borrowed from other sites. I intend to never
allow content that depends on shortcuts or acronyms and I like the
titles of everything to begin with caps. Just a personal thing LOL.
Thanks for the reply.
If you prefer titles beginning with caps, you probably prefer
$wgCapitalLinks = true. In that case, your WorkingWiki project titles
will also begin with capitals, because they're implemented as page
titles. Otherwise, as far as I can recall, it makes no difference to
WW. I apologize for not being more clear in my installation
instructions. I've improved them now.
Did you take a backup before running cleanupCaps.php? If you did
take one, you may be able to undo the damage by restoring from backup
and changing $wgCapitalLinks back to true.
