Active Directory Integration for Access Management

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if this was possible before I invest a lot of time into it.

I am using an instance of MediaWiki as an internal knowledge base.  I have
a variety of categories for different functions.  I was wondering if I
could do one of the following:

1.) Integrate with Active Directory.  If the user is in the Wiki-ReadOnly
group, they can only read pages and NOT change them.  If they are in the
Wiki-Write group, they can read & edit pages.

OR (the gold state)

2.) Have different read and write groups for each category.  For instance,
I use the wiki to document how we go about malware analysis and would like
some people to be able to see this to use as a reference when working a
case, but most people do not need to see this.

Is this possible?

Parsoid tests failed

Hi, I'm trying to setup visual editor and part of that is to install Parsoid.
After installating I'm moving to /usr/lib/parsoid/src directory and I run "npm test"
Some of tests are passed but many of them failed.

I've tried to progress with the installation but "edit" button is not responding, I believe it related with
the tests fails.

Someone can help me to troubleshoot that?

Mediawiki error creating thumbnail invalid thumbnail parameters


i have a Problem with the Mediawiki Version 1.23.1. (PHPV. 5.5.9; mysql:5.6.16)
After the Update from 1.15.4 to 1.23.1 some Thumbnails displays a Error:  "error creating thumbnail

Have anywhere an idea of this Problem?

Determining wgArticleId value within custom skin

Disclaimer: I am not a coder.  I need to pull in a unique identifier for
each Wiki page for use as a Javascript variable for a script in a
customized Monobook skin (pre v1.16).  wgArticleId seems to be the perfect
way to do so, as it does not change with redirects and is not defined for
deleted or special pages. Can someone point me in the correct direction on
how to pull in this value within the skin's PHP file itself?  I'm not
looking for an extension, etc.  I need to make the changes directly in the

Thanks for your assistance!

I’m using the Dynamic Article List in my MediaWiki site and while upgrading I have been getting errors
with new versions of the MediaWiki.
Is anyone maintaining this extension?
Or is there something else I can use to list most popular and newest articles?

Thank you

Debugging Variables

Dear Wiki'ers,

I added the following debug variables to a MediaWiki 1.22.8 LocalSettings.php on Windows that is giving me
some troubles.
$wgShowSQLErrors = true;
$wgDebugDumpSql = true;
$wgShowDBErrorBacktrace = true;

I thought that output would be displayed in the browser, at least for DumpSql, but I'm not getting anything.
Do I have to do anything else for these to work in MediaWiki 1.22.8.

Thanks for any help !
