Everything looks pretty good on my update from 1.7.1 to 1.8.2, except
when I run update.php I get the following error:
Adding ipb_anon_only field to table ipblocks...Query "DROP TABLE IF
EXISTS 'ipblocks_newunique'" failed with error code "DROP command denied
to user 'wikiuser'@localhost' for table 'ipblocks_newunique'
Up until that point the update appears to be going normally.

check the talkright extension.
also, i posted code that lets users easily post comments (instead of
editing the discussion page). search for the 'discussions questions'
to add a form to the page itself, i changed skins/Monobook.php. add the
following just before the </div> that is before the <div
Comment on this page:
<form name="commentForm" method="post"
<input name="target" value="<?php
$this->text('title') ?>" type="hidden"/>
<textarea tabindex="3" rows="5" cols="25"
<input tabindex="4" name="do" value="Post"
and in skins/monobook/main.css add the style you want mine is:
margin: 2.8em 0 0 12.2em;
padding: 1em 1em 1.5em 1em;
border: 1px solid #aaa;
/* border-right: none;*/
