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?

Downloading page view statistics per page[edit]

Hello, Could anyone help me with downloading and ordering daily page view statistics for ca. 125 pages on enwiki for ca. 25 month periods in a spreadsheet format? The only option I found is to download JSONs from, then convert and combine them one by one, but over 3000 pieces seem an awfully lot to do manually. I would need it for my Master thesis. Matthew Beta (talk) 08:35, 24 April 2015 (UTC)

Well, you clearly need to script it. :) You can write something like and use the monthly merged counts as input. Otherwise, if you prefer to use quick & dirty UNIX commands, you could download the 25 files and then just do a grep -E with suitable regex matching your 125 titles properly escaped and (de)normalised. If your aim is to do serious research, remember to consider the redirect (and prefer the scripting). --Nemo 09:09, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your answer! The part I understand is that you suggested to consider the redirects: does this mean that article traffic coming from redirects are not counted in the page views of the actual article? Also, at the UNIX part I think you assume that I need the data from the same 25 month for each article, but it is not the case. Unfortunately, I didn't understand the rest :). I have no experience in scripting, or with UNIX commands, or in anything of the sort. (I mean I can put together quite complex wikimedia templates, or find the thing I want to change in html, but that's kind of all.) Do you know if I could find someone somewhere who could help me with what you just described? - Matthew Beta (talk) 18:35, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
@Nemo bis: So… no suggestion where I can find someone who would script it for me just out of human goodness :D? - Matthew Beta (talk) 07:42, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
@Matthew Beta: Did you read the grep -E documentation and about regular expressions? Which specific parts are unclear? What blocks you from hacking this up, given the hints above? --Malyacko (talk) 07:58, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Really, I don't even know how to begin, since I've never done anything like that. I mean, sure, I understand what regular expressions are, and I am able to put together a simple one with the help of a documentation, but I've never used UNIX. I started to look it up, I guess I'd need something like Cygwin? But if it's too much trouble, I still have the option to use different data from other sources (that don't need scripting or commands but are worse quality). - Matthew Beta (talk) 11:23, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Something weird in the Watchlist in Greek Wikipedia[edit]

In the Greek Wikipedia (el) there is a stray "$3" at the end of the line where the watchlist period is defined: "Προβολή των τελευταίων 1 | 2 | 6 | 12 ωρών 1 | 3 | 7 | 30 ημερών $3". Can someone explain or direct me to the correct place to report? Rentzepopoulos (talk) 08:26, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

non-existent variable $3 should be deleted from Stryn (talk) 08:44, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for the quick reply. Now, I only need to find someone suitably authorised to do so (I cannot) Rentzepopoulos (talk) 08:47, 5 May 2015 (UTC)
