Yes, I'm aware of it. Just haven't taken the time to do it. Guess I will
now. LOL

WOW that went completely over my head. At least over my skill set. I
have no idea how to patch the Mediawiki. Can you point me to some
instructions? If it's just adding a file, no prob. But I'm guessing this
is actually patching the Mediawiki core. Is this in the new 1.19
releases? I'm running 1.18 & perhaps an upgrade will manage the issue???


Will Do!!
