Inserimento link[edit]

Salve. Vorrei inserire un link che indirizza a sito esterno in un testo. Ho già provato più volte ma viene considerato come indirizzo pubblicitario. Come risolvere?

il link è questo: ho provato a creare una pagina anche ma non mi accetta i link. testi e link sono originali e non sono usati a scopo pubblicitario.

Is it possible to download a raw dataset of all world government organizations (city, state, province, etc.)?

If there is not a data value indicating it's a government organization, are all URLS in a table so that I can programmatically deduce which URLs are government, therefore indirectly indicating all government organizations?

wikipedia font size too small[edit]

how do i increase the font size in the wikipedia app i just down loaded to my laptop as it is way too small, the std font that came with the wikipedia app?!? thank you. The wikipedia app is a good alternative for search!

A: On your computer, open Chrome. At the top right, click More Settings. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings. Under "Web Content," make the changes you want: Change everything: Next to "Page zoom," click the Down arrow . Then select the zoom option you want.

Math equations missing in all pages[edit]

In Firefox 3 and some older versions of IE the <math> is not rendered, the <meta> with "background: url()" using svg graphic is not rendered either. The pages without equations are crippled to uselessness. In mid-april 2016 it worked well with using PNG images, and also pages like refer to using PNG images... There is no mention of changing math technology in your "Tech news" either (at least since March this year, the change occured sometimes after mid-april...)

Using this old versions of web-browsers may be an important security-issue, since newer versions of Firefox with Firefox.js compiled into Omni.ja prevents security editing of snooping configuration items, the Chrome and some IE are unsecure due to inability to switch off javascript, very poor configuration options and more problems...

Web pages packed to MHT (MIME html) file format may be displayed inline in some e-mail clients, which also probably will not support <math> tags...

book and pdf creator font size[edit]

I do like the 2-column download pdf and create book options. I like to print them with the Adobe Reader print as booklet option. However, the font is then just a bit to small. I can increase that with the scale option of pdfjam bust just 8%. Is there somewhere hidden an option of the book creator for increasing the font size?? (I run Linux) Cheers, Janwillem

"Pages that link to" not updated?[edit]

Problem in German Wikipedia: The page lists many articles, for example ISO_8859-2, but the article does not contain a link to "Escape-Sequenz" (neither direct nor through a template). Any ideas, why the pages are listed as linked pages? --Trustable (talk) 16:45, 2 November 2016 (UTC)

Solution: Edit the articles, then they will disappear from the list. --Trustable (talk) 16:44, 9 November 2016 (UTC)

MediaWiki default and Esperanto translations[edit]

The MediaWiki default bot, which updates translated pages from the Translatewiki, does not update at least 3 pages: MediaWiki:Cite section preview references/eo, MediaWiki:Cite warning/eo, MediaWiki:Cite warning sectionpreview no text/eo. Gamliel Fishkin 03:55, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

That's because your translation was inserted incorrectly: please use Special:Translate (or Special:SearchTranslations) next time. After my dummy edit the translations should be exported this evening. Nemo 10:11, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. Gamliel Fishkin 18:29, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

SQL query against production database[edit]

Hi, i am trying to get some statistics about how many pages are deleted per year via our notability policy (eg fi:wikipedia:merkittävyys) and who have created those pages. Eg many new users articles we are deleting per year and is there any change in time. However the deleted pages are filtered out from Tool Labs db so i can't just use it and somebody would need to do query for me. My question is which is correct place to ask this?

use fiwiki_p;
SELECT page_title, page_id, page_is_redirect, rev_timestamp, rev_user, rev_user_text, rev_len, rev_deleted, rev_comment 
  FROM page,revision 
  WHERE page_id=rev_page AND page_namespace=0 AND rev_comment LIKE "%erkittävyys%";

@Zache: I have submitted quarry:query/14165 for you and the results are on that page as well. Not sure if that's what you wanted? Regards, —MarcoAurelio 11:09, 18 November 2016 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: The problem with Quarry or direct ToolLabs databases is that they don't include the deleted pages in their page and revision tables and statistics about the deleted stuff is what i am trying to get (and because that this was not what i wanted.) --Zache (talk) 11:17, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Ah, and my mistake. Deleted pages are in archive table, but it doesn't help much because text and ar_comment fields are nulled. --Zache (talk) 11:49, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

The block[edit]

I can be unlocked? The changes were made by my son, please. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Fabriuz (talk)

Your account is not blocked on this wiki. You have to request unblock on the wiki where your account is blocked. You can still edit your talk page on the Italian Wikipedia so you can request to be unblocked. -- Tegel (Talk) 14:07, 18 November 2016 (UTC)

Help me[edit]

Hello. I am from Azerbaijan. I have blocked from Proger Help me

We can't help you with that. You have to bring it up on the wiki where your IP-address is blocked. You can edit your talk page and place an unblock request there. Here is a direct link to the talk page. -- Tegel (Talk) 14:38, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Help with installing Common.css and Common.js[edit]


Every instruction I have seen on the web says to import them at MediaWiki:Common.css and MediaWiki:Common.js. However, when I do either, I get this error:

 "The requested URL /MediaWiki:Common.css was not found on this server."

Can someone just tell me how to import these into my Wiki? My wiki is here: http://[MyURL]/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.


Hi Robert. It can be very frustrating to install your own wiki, especially for myself because I just fumble around with techy things. :) I think you might want to post your request over on the MediaWiki website, not on Wikimedia, though someone here might be able to answer your question. There is a support desk on that website which looks promising. Killiondude (talk) 19:32, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Thank you, Killiondude!

It sounds like you tried to set up short URLs and some path is incorrectly configured. If you're getting a HTTP 404 error from your Web server, it typically means either your rewrite rules are funky or you didn't appropriately edit a setting in LocalSettings.php (or both!). In addition to the support desk as Killiondude mentioned, we also have real-time interactive chat on IRC in the #mediawiki channel on --MZMcBride (talk) 21:36, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
