Currently xml:lang is set by $wgContentLang only. It's not good to search
engines to determine the real content language of a specific page. The worse
thing is, Wikimania 2007 site set xml:lang incorrectly to "wikimania2007".
By helps from Ping Yeh <ping.nsr.yeh(a)gmail.com>, the patch checks available
language codes of Template:Languages to set xml:lang dynamically. It's
particularly important to http://wikimania2007.wikimedia.org or other sites
used Template:Language to retain the impact of search engine optimizations.
Please refer to http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10736 for the
patch. Thank you!

Let's find all the empty help etc. page links that come with
Special:Wantedpages doesn't tell the whole story. There are tons of
empty help page links that the user will stumble into. I wish to track
them down and fill them in before users stumble into them.
I can at least redirect them to existing pages. E.g., various help and
FAQ links can be redirected to my site's single help page.
Those missing page names are perhaps all in
languages/messages/Messages*.php in the section that start with
"# All link text and link target definitions of links"
Wait, maybe instead of redirecting them, I just should edit
Mediawiki:edithelppage etc. to point to my single Project:Help.
Anyway, first I must assemble a list of which ones are actually
missing. I suppose I must probe their URLs.
Wait, maybe I need only deal with the ones users are most likely to
No, I don't want to really fill in every different helpful help page,
but instead just link them to my monolithic single help page.
I try to use this mediawiki extension ( http://wiki.auf-trag.de/ ) but I
get the following error:
*Fatal error*: Call to a member function getContent() on a non-object in
*/var/www/htdocs/wiki-corp/w/extensions/wikipdf/wikipdf.php* on line *111
Anyone know this project here? I tried to contact with the author, maybe
it's not developed anymore. Or do you guys know better pdf converter
the flagged Revisions extension is nearing completion, thanks to Joerg
Baach and particular Aaron Schulz:
The thing we are having the most trouble is the GUI, which uses CSS.
Here, help would be most appreciated. So, if anybody here would like
to give us a hand, heres a description of how it should be:
Inside the extension, two GUIs are sort of hidde. One is "Aarons GUI",
which is fine and working on all skins. Then there is "Joergs GUI",
which works only on Monobook and is very useful for what will alter be
the german wikipedia version of this extension. This one uses CSS and
here we need some help:
# The GUI should be changeable in mediawiki settings (so that Aarons
and Jörgs are both usable).
# The box that appears when clicking on an icon should overlap the
text, not move it around.
# The icon should be placed outside the content box, on the same height as
the lemma, to the right.
# The icon that is shown should correspond to the type of version the viewer
is seeing (quality aka reviewed, sighted or not flagged).
If you want to help and have further questions, please contact Aaron
Schulz or Daniel Arnold (I will be on holiday the next three weeks).
Who does the footers at en?
It would seem more sensible for the word "charity" on every page to link
to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charitable_organization rather than to a
disambiguation page and its a bit rubbishy putting "non-profit charity"
as two separate tautologous links and would be better without the
non-profit one at all.
And while we are on the subject: why isn't this footer on Meta? And why
does the one on "Simple" link to indigestible articles on the main en
rather than the local ones?
Answers on a postcard please....

Please remember to use commit messages that are helpful in context,
"grr" is not one of them.
Just a notification of a schedule shift:
Since there's still some pretty heavy development activity going on, I'm
going to go ahead and delay the 1.11.0 release until mid-August, after
the Wikimania conference.
This'll give us a chance to iron out the new upload improvements and
other little goodies still going on.
We're definitely interested in feedback from the 1.10.1 point release as
far as installer compatibility -- if there are any problems we'll want
to know to make sure 1.11.0 fixes them.

My goal is to display my own page in wikipedia using third party software.that
party will be designed by me as a developer.
In that software i users will enter a searched word,this word must be searched
in wikipedia website particularly in my own page.And display it.
Can i do this,if yes how to do it?
Does anybody know who created the image that is used next to external links in Monobook? I tried using the SVN history to find out, but I reached a dead-end there.
I would like to use the image on another website and I want to contact the creator of the image about its license.
