Re: suppressing a page title

There is no way to suppress it on individual pages that I
know of.

You can suppress it on *all* pages in the article namespace
using [[Mediawiki:Monobook.css]], by adding:

     .ns-0 .firstHeading { display: none }

If you still need a title, you can add it manually, either
with =single equals signs= (which adds it to the toc) or
with the <h1> tag, which doesn't.

This may be more drastic than what you want.

You're going to have to be more specific in what you're trying to do.
As it stands, what you're asking is kinda hard.

Re: Renaming namespaces

Slim to none.

Note that you can also translate via the MediaWiki namespace. See
[[Special:Allmessages]] (in en) for a list of such messages.

Re: calling a wiki-page by a defined name

I want to replace the navigation-menu by a fixed article (e.g. mywiki:menu).
Therefor i just would like to replace the navigation part ("<?php
foreach($this->data['navigation_urls']  ... " by a function, which inserts
the
article called "mywiki:menu".
This would make the changing of the navigation-menue much more easier

Ok, I've made some more changes tonight to clean it up to where it
should be in a reasonably working state. Hopefully coherent info follows:

The old user_rights field (in 1.4, the ur_rights in the user_rights
table) was a comma-delimited list of group names. For instance it might
contain "sysop,bureaucrat" or "bot", or just "" for a regular account.

In 1.5 these are now each in a row in the user_groups table, which is
easier to track and manipulate programmatically. To manually mark an
account as a sysop+bureaucrat, look up its user_id number and insert the
group assignments like this:

INSERT INTO user_groups VALUES (1,'sysop'),(1,'bureaucrat');

The actual permissions conferred to a user in a given group are defined
in $wgGroupPermissions. DefaultSettings.php contains a default set
(which may slightly change yet before final release), but you could

Re: doc file

If you want to upload .doc files to the wiki and link to them, you can
add 'doc' to the upload file extension whitelist in LocalSettings.php,
something like this:

$wgFileExtensions[] = 'doc';

(See includes/DefaultSettings.php for all available settings.)

You can link to uploaded files as eg [[media:Document.doc]]

Make sure you've set up and enabled uploads:
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Documentation:Administration#Enabling_and_Disabling_Uploads
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Uploading_files

If you're trying to convert Word documents into formatted wiki pages, I
believe there's a Word macro out there that someone's written to do some
formatting conversion. I don't have the link handy, sorry; it should
turn up in a Google search.

Re: calling a wiki-page by a defined name

If I understand what you are trying to do... I generated multiple rendered 
wiki articles in the PDF export hack I wrote.

$wgOut->mBodytext = "";        # Clear the output
$art = "Some article title";
$PDFTitle = Title::newFromURL( $art );
$PDFArticle = new Article($PDFTitle);
$PDFArticle->view();            # generate the output

Now $wgOut->mBodyText contains the article's html code, and you can do that 
for as many as you want.

You should be able to use SkinTemplate's msgWiki() method for this,
using a custom message in the MediaWiki: namespace to store the list.

Be aware that loading and rendering extra wikitext on every page may
slow things down a bit, which is part of why we don't do it that way.

Hi, I'm new and have a couple problems

Hello everybody! I have just set up wiki at greenpowered.org to help
people teach each other about making the transition to clean energy.
It is a wonderful engine and I thank everyone who contributed to it
and for making it available.

I have a couple problems I can't figure out though. Possibly it is
something with the server not mediawiki, but any info is appriciated.

The first is that every once in a while when a link is clicked, I get
prompted to save the file: index.php I believe. If you click cancel
and click it again it always works. It happens rarely. If you open the
file it prompts you to save, it is in binary, with only a couple lines
of data.

The second problem only started happening recently. What happens is if
a new page is created, then you go back to the page where you created
it, the link does not turn blue. If you click it the edit page comes
up, and the text is in the editbox. The strange thing is hitting
refresh won't help. The only way for the link to turn blue is to
delete all the pages out of the IE browser cache, and re-access it. I
thought it happened when I upgraded from 1.4.0 to 1.4.4. However, i
went back to 1.4.0 and it was still there. Now I'm on 1.4.5, and still
have the problem. The way I switched versions was just to replace all
the files.
