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...

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?

Number of rows in pagelinks table[edit]


I've been on a quest to find out the number of rows roughly inside the pagelinks.sql table. Does anyone have a rough estimate that I could use?


Downloading maps of capital cities[edit]

Hey, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but...

On the Wikipedia page for any country capital (Tirana, for instance), there's a picture of the country with a red dot where the capital is. But the red dot is not a part of the image; it's another tiny image on top. If you click on the image, it will open up a bigger original version, with no dot at all.

Is there any way to download the big version of the image, which includes the marker for the capital? Thanks!

Error when connecting to old database[edit]

I’m using MediaWiki: 1.17.0
PHP: 5.3.28-nmm4 (fpm-fcgi)
MySQL: 5.6.24-nmm1-log

One year ago my webhoster told:
“- Please do not use the "AddHandler php4-cgi .php" command line in your
.htaccess file anymore. Instead you need to alter the command line into
"AddHandler php5-cgi .php".

2) After the server update you are able to use PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.5 (in
CGI mode), the latest versions of PHP.

3) MySQL is going to be updated from 5.1 to 5.5. This will not lead to
any expected errors.

After the server-update my wiki did not work anymore.
My webhoster helped with an addition of some .htaccess files to my wiki installation path and the root. But still some problems remain.

I decided to install the newest wiki version as test with a new empty database.
MediaWiki: 1.25.2
PHP: 5.6.13-nmm4 (fpm-fcgi)
MySQL: 5.6.24-nmm1-log
It is running without any problems.
But when I am trying to connect it to my old database (by change in the LocalSettings.php) I get an error. “A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.”

My question:
Was there any change in the structure of the database since 1.17.0?
The number of tables is still 49, but I do not now, wether changes are made in the relations or the table definitions.
Is there any other way to update the database to wiki 1.25.2?

I'm grateful for any help.

Incoerências no texto sobre "Moisés"[edit]

O texto sobre Moisés, em: está incoerente. Diz que foi posterior a Aquenáton (r. 1352-1338 a.C.), no entanto, diz que tinha "Aos quarenta anos (1552 a.C.)", "Quarenta anos depois (1512 a.C.)" e "Durante quarenta anos (segundo a maioria dos historiadores, no período entre 1550 a.C. e 1510 a.C.)", anterior a Aquenáton, pois. É incoerente também com o que está mais abaixo, no quadro "Identidade de Moisés", onde diz que: "Localização Temporal: 1250 a.C.".

API to get links of a page not working (only for some titles!)[edit]


The following API call has been working well for me till today morning.

Now, I get the following response:


   "batchcomplete": "",
   "query": {
       "pages": {
           "22989": {
               "pageid": 22989,
               "ns": 0,
               "title": "Paris"
   "limits": {
       "links": 500


Interestingly, if I change the titles parameter to have another value like 'London', or 'Louvre', or 'Amsterdam' I get proper results. Wikipedia server does not like Paris or I'm doing something silly here :-). I have tried this from API sandbox, curl and python scripts. Same response. I tried it from my friend's phone; same response. Anyone has a clue as to what's going wrong here? Thanks for your time folks.

Wrong parentid values in enwiki XML dumps[edit]


I'm working with the enwiki-20151002 dump [1], and have noticed many cases (around 170k) where the parentid value in a revision is wrong.

Easiest example to verify this: In file enwiki-20151002-pages-meta-history14.xml-p003920011p003924999.7z (16MB), you may find this:


However, by inspecting the pages history [2], you may see that 246108841 is not the correct parent, but rather there are two other revisions that happened between 246108841 and 263728646.

Thx, ealmansi

You should probably report this issue on the phabricator:. Ruslik (talk) 18:52, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Question to the wikipedia group[edit]

Hello! My name is António Makaia. I am from Angola, Cabinda. I would like to help wikipedia by editing contents from my country but, the the problem is that I dont know how to program, I dont how to manage all the web developer programming language, like: JAVASCRIPT, PHP, HTML, CSS and so on. So why dont you upload here video tutorials about web programming?

Good work!

If you just want to "edit contents from your country", you do not need to know anything about "JAVASCRIPT, PHP, HTML, CSS and so on". Ruslik (talk) 13:34, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
