How do you make a wiki?[edit]

I don't know how to make a wiki that is powered by MediaWiki. I have looked all over the wiki. Can someone help me please? XxMeepsterxX (talk)

Nevermind. I did some more looking around the wiki XxMeepsterxX (talk)

Bonjour, Je voudrais inserer ces liens dynamiques dans une page wiki et voir les memes resultats comme sur les pages web HTML:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><div class="tableauPlaceholder" style="width:1908px; height:897px;"><object class="tableauViz" width="1908" height="897" style="display:none;"><param name="host_url" value="" /><param name="site_root" value="" /><param name="name" value="TheHealthSysthemDW-Copy2/1_AntenatalCC1VperR" /><param name="tabs" value="no" /><param name="toolbar" value="yes" /></object></div>

Comment y proceder ?

S'il vous plait veuillez m'apporter un appui.


Hallo! I just "created" a new Wiki using MediaWiki latest version. My question is: is there a software (app) running under Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite that can allow me to create and/or edit wiki articles OFFline and then sync them to ONline version? Something like MarsEdit for blogs, just to be clear...

OAuth administrators[edit]

Hi, why do Meta, Commons, and maybe others have a OAuth administrators group linked on Special:ListGroupRights, while Special:OAuthManageConsumers is a red link, i.e., works only on mediawikiwiki? Be..anyone (talk) 00:54, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

That group (OAuth administrators) indeed should only exist on the central wiki (mediawikiwiki). I've just uploaded to fix this (will try to get it deployed in the next few days). - Hoo man (talk) 01:08, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I've updated the Meta:OAuth administrators stub (I hate red links especially on special pages ;-) –Be..anyone (talk) 03:15, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Google Maps changes[edit]

I hope this is the best place (or at least an appropriate place) to raise this issue. This should probably be brought to the attention of some of the Tech/Engineering staff. I tried looking for an email of an appropriate department or staff member, but to no avail. This is the best location I've come across (via the "Tech Forum" link at mw:Wikimedia Engineering). If you know a better place to raise this issue, please mention it. If you are able to contact any relevant staff member, please let then know about it; likewise, you are more than welcome to copy-paste my remarks in an email to any relevant staff.

It looks like Google will no longer support KML files from external websites:

"From February 2015, maps created in the classic Google Maps — — will no longer load KML/KMZ files from external websites."

Instead, they will require the use of "Google My Maps" or the "Google Maps JavaScript API". Full details at at this webpage: KML files on Google Maps.

Personally, I am only vaguely familiar with the use and importance of KML files on Wikipedia (and probably other WMF projects), so I don't understand the full implications for WMF but do recognize this as an important issue that needs to be brought to Tech/Engineering's attention. At the very least, it will affect:

Again, I don't have much knowledge of the implications of the change to Wikimedia projects, but I think this means that KML files available on Wikipedia (and perhaps some other projects) will no longer be able to be rendered in Google Maps starting in February. I hope some solution can be reached. AHeneen (talk) 08:10, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
