We're running Mediawiki 1.16 at work.  It can be accessed in two ways:

http://www._____.com/wiki

http://www._____.net/wiki

It all needs to be .net, not .com, even though both are available.  I've already changed the $wgServer variable appropriately.

I don't speak server management fluently.  It's being hosted on CentOS.  What can I look at to get .com to redirect to .net?

With this visit1, this makes five women I've seen in person who (a) don't shave their legs, and yet (b) still have less hair on their legs than me.  I must've been spliced with a freakin' bear in the womb, or something.  A bear with a watermelon head2.

1] I'm in New York in the summer.

2] I joke that I was spliced with a watermelon in the womb, which explains my gargantuan, default-hat-useless head.





If you are crossposting from DW to LJ, please consider enabling display of the crossposted link.  It's not some wretched deal-killer or anything, it's just that I want to get to the LJ post quicker than going to the individual LJ, or keeping the person on my default view in both sites.




I'm currently using Mediawiki at work, but I want something... better.

Criteria, that I can remember. )

I did 2 things in Mediawiki:

* Upgraded from 1.14 to 1.16.
* Changed all the "move page" stuff to "rename page" stuff.  (I use Wikia a lot, and some of their changes make all the sense.)

Now, when I rename a page from A to B, all the special text is fine, except for the page title -- it instead says: <movepage> - [Wiki Name]

There's no variable in the system messages area called "movepage", just "move-page".  I didn't see anything obvious about this in the changelogs.  I have no goddamn clue how MW makes its <title> tags.

Halp?

Today, categories in MediaWiki are irritating me.  I want it to be more like tagging, and certainly more like in Wikia, where one can add categories without having to edit the page.

I don't quite know why I dislike categories but like tagging.

Writing this out because I'm bizzeh.

Is there something in MediaWiki, or an extension for said, where I can add keywords to an article that don't show up in the article itself?

For example, I'm looking in the work wiki to find a page I may have written about regenerating an invoice, but I can't remember if I used "regenerate", "reissue", "recreate", whatever.  Rather than search for one thousand years, I'd rather load the articles with keywords I can search on.

Later, when I have time, searchy.


[eta] Speaking of, is there some sort of "conjugate these words" search extension dealiebopper?  I found the page under "Regenerating An Invoice", where "regenerate" didn't pull up the page, and this frustrates me.

Question:

Is there a guide to etiquette when it comes to MediaWiki extensions?

I found one that's mostly perfect, where I'd love to change it to be better, and yet the user hasn't been around for ages.  (About 2-3 years.)  This extension really needs changing, too.  I don't want to step on their toes, but I want a better version out there.

In Mediawiki, I am trying to see how often people who aren't me use the wiki here at work.  This can be session data (how many unique times do people visit the site, with an n-minute idle time to distinguish uniqueness?) or pageviews (same as above, but visiting a page); whichever I can get, tbh.

I already know of the Recent Changes page.  However:

(a) That tracks page edits, not views or logins.
(b) I already watch that page for non-me edits.
(c) They don't make that many edits to the wiki.  :P

Pageviews itself is not a useful stat, because it doesn't break it down by user.

I've installed Statcounter code to get something somewhat similar to what I want, but it's just gonna go by IP, and gah.  I feel that Mediawiki should have this already.  And yet, I'm googlin' it rong.

Halp?

Newer Mediawiki versions have the page Special:LinkSearch.  This searches for all links that start with whatever you type in.  Except, you still can't list them all at once.

To change this, edit $mw/includes/specials/SpecialLinkSearch.php, around line 102:

if (preg_match('/^(:?[0-9]{1,3}\.)+\*\s*$|^(:?[0-9]{1,3}\.){3}[0-9]{1,3}:[0-9]*\*\s*$/', $query) || $query == "*") {

The or bit is what matters there.

Where do I have to put a favicon for it to be picked up by MediaWiki (1.15)?

Steps:

* I put it in the main wiki folder.
* I edited /includes/DefaultSettings.php, to try each of these three paths for $wgFavicon:
** /favicon.ico
** /internal/path/to/favicon.ico
** http://www.url.url/mw-url/favicon.ico
* I edited LocalSettings.php, just to be on the safe side.
* I cleared the cache, hit Ctrl-F5, and tried in non-usual browsers (I have Chrome for other-sites testing, and had never gone to my MW install there before).

Nothing.

I can, incidentally, go to the http: link and see the favicon, so it's not like it's hiding from me or cased wrong or something.

What am I missing?




[eta] *eyeroll*  I'm not sure why I even bother posting.  I put the http: variable definition in LocalSettings, and it shows up fine.

My Dad came up for a visit.  *adds to Timeline wiki page*

It was good.  We nattered about family, documentation, various, sundry.  He seemed to like Josh, while simultaneously giving off the impression that his opinion's not the one that matters.

Josh: [mock-Dad-voice] "Hey you, stay away from my daughter!"
Me, Dad: *stare stare*
Dad: You don't know me very well.  You don't know her very well!

*amused*

I abruptly want to make/find a MediaWiki extension that'll take input into a table, and export it to a nicely formatted HTML table.

He gave me four new games, too, so bonus:

* Gloom
* Cannibal Pygmies in the Jungle of Doom
* Grave Robbers from Outer Space
* Kung Fu Samurai on Giant Robot Island
