OK I did install the php curl module along with Extension:WikiCurl and
it seemed that did the trick...for a while. I updated my Debian Php with
a stable upgrade and now none of the {{wikipedia::linkname}} work. I,m
not sure what caused it. I am sure thats what caused it. see new post
with "[Mediawiki-l] Issue with recent Php5 update" as the subject.
Thanks for sticking with me on this. I,m trying to get this site ready
to be moved to a remote hosting server & really need to get the bugs (of
my own doing) worked out.
