For Installers section[edit]

I don't understand what this section is for. Is it for those who want to install the mediawiki software? Simthagin 09:49, 30 June 2007 (UTC)

Layout tidying[edit]

Would it be possible to change the layout of this page? It's really nasty having all of the links in a tiny column on the left-hand side. A multi-column layout for each section would be much more attractive and more navagable too. Rob.desbois 12:19, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

yes, I apologize completely. the old layout was much better. Matthias Köhler 20:25, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
These tiny columns on the left do suck.. I'm looking into a way to have comments appear on the "alone" versions, and to be hidden when it is tucked into a sidebar. I think that sidebars should be an automatic wiki feature.. sort of like in.. *gasp* i dare say.. frontpage.. where you align the documents relationships. We have categories.. and we might be able to do something about having a sidebar automatically pop up showing things in the same category. That would solve this whole mess properly.
It appears that people like the sidebars. (or nobody uses this site) *sigh* AaronPeterson 03:22, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Special characters in URLs?[edit]

How can MediaWiki be configured to accept special characters in URLS like For example, when I type, the wiki automatically strips the + (and any other non-alphanumeric) characters and redirects to

Site Specific Policy[edit]

The page claims "This help does not cover site-specific conventions, it is for the software only." However, in regard to deleting pages, it fails completely to meet this goal: it doesn't tell me how to delete a page, but it does tell me about policies for page deletion in wikipedia.

I created Help:Deleting a page.--Patrick 11:07, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

"and import this help into your site."[edit]

It would be great if the link "import this help into your site" went to some helpful info about importing this help into my site. I'd add the info if I knew it.

For readers: Fpnt sets[edit]

Since my pc currently can't display the Japanese (and several other) foreign fonts that wikipedia uses, I think it'd be nice if there was a reader section on what fonts exactly are used over the wiki. Or, preferrably, someone who can tell me what fonts are being used ;) --MooNFisH 03:51, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

A question about implementing adsense[edit]

I'm not sure if this question belongs here, but I didn't know where to ask. My question is how to implement an adsense ad so it appears on every page except the main page, they way the guys at have done. The small 468x60 ad appears on every other page (including image pages and special pages) but the main page. Does anyone know how to do that?? Please???-- 08:07, 22 December 2007 (UTC)


I still don`t know how to enable multilanguage. Is there someone who can help me? Thanks.


Which WIKI is the best on planet?[edit]

I`m not sure if WikiMedia is the right one. Actually, I`m looking for a "Public Groupware CMS" (Exp. WikiMedia) for my very large community. Can anyone help me out?

For editors section[edit]

Imho it's very uneasy for the eye that the headings in this section are in the middle, while the text is at the left. Can somone edit it so that it's like the other sections, where the headings are at the left but with a small indention. -- 19:50, 31 March 2008 (UTC)


Ok, but I'm not sure it belongs here. --Nemo 15:46, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

I removed it, that was a copy of Help:Introduction#MediaWiki, Wikimedia, and Wikipedia. iAlex 16:09, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Video Tutorials[edit]

Are there any good video tutorials for new users and editors? Mind you most people on the web are reluctant to read great chunks of text to learn how to use a website. A short tutorial could be extremely useful.

See Video tutorials, outreach:Instructional videos and c:Category:Instructional videos on using Wikipedia. --Glaisher (talk) 08:15, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
