  1. Tables don't really support this feature. Given that you are displaying a grid of images, you should actually be looking into making a gallery, which is responsive by default.
  2. On CentOS, you would use the yum/dnf package manager (depending on what version of CentOS you have installed) to install the dependencies that MediaWiki needs, such as your webserver, database server, and PHP. A more step-by-step guide is available at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Running_MediaWiki_on_Red_Hat_Linux, but I have not checked it over for accuracy. It appears reasonably up-to-date however.
  3. You need to login to the API first (generally this is done by using a bot password generated at Special:BotPasswords). You will need to ensure the bot password used has the appropriate scopes to do whatever you want it to do (such as edit pages). The login API will attempt to set some cookies. You are required to save these cookies in your python script and present them to all future API requests, so it can pull up your logged-in session.
  4. You need to use the #tag parser function, see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Magic_words#Miscellaneous for more information on that. <ref> does not allow embedding any wiki markup inside of it, but {{#tag:ref}} does Example (untested, may require modification to work): {{#tag:ref|Contents of the primary footnote/reference goes here.{{#tag:ref|Secondary footnote/reference goes here|name=secondary}}|name=primary}} This example is the equivalent of the following. Note the following markup does not work, this is meant to just give a better visualization of what the above tex
  5. MediaWiki is not yet compatible with PHP 8. Please downgrade XAMPP so that you have PHP 7 instead of PHP 8.
  6. That is most likely the HotCat gadget. To get it on your wiki you'd need to Install the Gadgets extension: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Gadgets Set up the HotCat gadget on your wiki: Export the gadget from Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Gadgets/export/HotCat (this will download a .xml file) Go to [[Special:Import]] on your wiki and import the .xml file you just downloaded Edit the page [[MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition]] on your wiki and add a new line containing the text shown on the export page in step 1
  7. This forum is not affiliated with any particular wiki; you will need to contact the owners of that wiki for additional assistance.
  8. VisualEditor in 1.35 no longer requires Parsoid to be running. You should decommission your Parsoid server if at all possible and remove all references to it in your LocalSettings.php. Other extensions (such as Math) may also have their own config that point to external services. If you make use of a local Mathoid instance, for example, VisualEditor will automatically try to use a local Parsoid instance. Be careful of that as well (mostly by not configuring such extensions to use those services).
  9. There are no scripts that MediaWiki ships with to repair corruption in the text table caused by manual modifications, because that is not a supported scenario. However, modifying an existing table entry (compared to making a new one) should take effect right away. Try rebuilding your caches with the rebuildall.php script; it's possible the old version is simply being cached, and that will cause it to be re-parsed. You may run into exceptions when doing that, you'll need to clean that up manually if it occurs.
  10. Yes, this is possible. First you'll want the OpenID Connect extension: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OpenID_Connect The OpenID Connect extension requires the PluggableAuth extension as a prerequisite: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:PluggableAuth One of the configurations for PluggableAuth (on the second link) allows for local logins in addition to OIDC. You'll want the following in your LocalSettings.php (after loading both extensions): $wgPluggableAuth_EnableLocalLogin = true;

    Debounce

    Version 1.2.0

    2 downloads

    The Debounce extension integrates with the debounce.io API to check whether email addresses are disposable or otherwise invalid for registration. Both the free disposable email API as well as the paid email validation API are available. By default, this uses the free API. Installation Download and place the file(s) in a directory called Debounce in your extensions/ folder. Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php: wfLoadExtension( 'Debounce' ); Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully in

  12. While MediaWiki could be used for all of those things (although you'd need to likely create some custom extensions for your use cases), it is definitely not designed or intended to be any of those things. MediaWiki is best used for a collaborative environment where users can work together on creating pages/articles for some purpose. It has been used for encyclopedias, documentation, guides, how-tos, and knowledgebases. Others use it as a general-purpose content management system, although that sort of setup requires a lot of effort. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Deciding_
  13. Wiki pages are not files; they are not stored on a filesystem anywhere (which is what makes something a "file"). Pages are stored in the database, so filesystem concepts like extensions do not apply to them.
  14. You can run MediaWiki on anything so long as you can run a web server, PHP, and a database server on it. Most people run it on linux, but there's quite a few that run on windows as well. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Installation_requirements for more details.
