Well... that was uncalled for. If you don't wish to receive anything 
from the list, the instructions for how to unsubscribe are contained in 
the original message you replied to. Yelling it at all and sundry won't 
do you any good. For your benefit, I'll repeat the lines here:

I've sent the user a longer email explaining how to do it, and also
plonked his email address in the box and hit unsubscribe. Provided he
does as the confirmation says, there oughtn't to be a further problem.

Hi,

I read the FAQ and the mailing list archive.
It says: Wikis must now be encoded in Unicode UTF-8
.... If it says charset=iso8859-1, you may need to convert your data.
So far, so good.

So I dumped the data base and converted my data with iconv.
Result: Wiki data are o.k., but now the navigation bar and
everything else is broken.

What have I done wrong ?

Regards,

Heiko

Continue to read the FAQ for altering the navigation bar. What else is "broken"?

Call the built-in Image class functions. Given a title like
"Image:Foo.png", do something like...

$title = Title::newFromText( $text );
$image = new Image( $title );

...then use the accessors, e.g. $image->getUrl() etc. to access it.

My wiki folder, blahblah (joke) has the config file in it with index.php and
the LocalSettings.php file. When I move the file to my domain folder, my
wiki reads "Now you have to set up your wiki". I put it back, it tells me to
move LocalSettings. I move Localsettings, keep the index.file, We're back to
"You need to set up your site". In an endless loop here. HELP!

Thanks much. RG

You need to move the LocalSettings.php up one level from the config/ dir 
and leave the index.php alone. This would do it on Unix:

cd 
mv config/LocalSettings.php ..

The '..' means move it up one dir (don't omit the space before the 
'..'). That is for Unix, Linux, etc. If you are on some other OS you 
need to say so.

Good luck. I had the same trouble myself just a few days ago.

Roger :-)
