Category links slow to update[edit]

I'm having an issue with a private Wiki that I have setup where category links are slow to update. If a category is added to an article, the category shows as being registered on the article immediately, however when opening the category, the new article does not appear. The delay in updating of the category link is different each time, sometimes a small delay (maybe 30 seconds or less), sometimes longer (approx. 5 minutes). This is in turn affecting the updating of categories displayed via the Category Tree extension which we are using for ease of navigation.

I have tried searching for similar issues reported by other users, but have not come across anything as yet.

The Wiki host is running in the following configuration:

MediaWiki Ver: 1.27

Host OS: Windows Server 2012 R2

Web Server: IIS 8.5

PHP: 5.6.24 (cgi-fcgi)

DB: MySQL 5.7.9

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...



  1. Are gadgets can be converted into default options in the Preferences (If it can benefit all projects)?
  2. Is it possible to make deleting "Talk page of a nonexistent or deleted page" happens automatically with the deletion of the original page?
    1. What about Commons files (Instead of the slow bot:Deleting locally without the emergence of these changes in "Special:RecentChanges")? --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 09:49, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

Thank you --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 09:22, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

You can make gadgets default as you can see in MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition. Deleting talk pages automatically can be done with a user script/gadget. Ruslik (talk) 20:19, 3 October 2016 (UTC)
I mean that these things be in the program itself without the need to "MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition" or "user script/gadget".Is this possible? --ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2 (talk) 12:50, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

Strange global block log bug[edit]

Sorry can't write longer as I'm on phone, but please see this Stryn (talk) 21:03, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

T147642 is related, according to en.wp VPT. I can't personally see that bug as it's hidden though. ~ Matthewrbowker Drop me a note 21:29, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
