Re: value displayed by {{NUMBEROFEDITS}} doesn't change after edits

I've just been told that having "$wgEnableParserCache => false;" in
LocalSettings.php will significantly slow-down the site if it ever has more
than a few users, which is why parsercaching exists in the first place - not
that I know what 'parsercaching' is myself!

Re: value displayed by {{NUMBEROFEDITS}} doesn't change after edits

The parsercache is a cache which saves the parsed state of a page after 
MW has parsed it, and it's retrieved from the cache instead of being 
reparsed on each page view, up until the page is saved again, a or the 
job que or a user purges it.

Believe it or not, but MediaWiki's parser is NOT fast. It is quite 
inefficient, it's a big kludge made up of a huge pile of regexes and 
other stuff. Not to mention that things like #ifexist and other things 
end up doing a costly query to the database. Which in itself is 
something that can quickly slow down a site by doing to many of those on 
every page view.

Re: value displayed by {{NUMBEROFEDITS}} doesn't change after edits

I see - thanks for explaining that, which also explains why disabling the
parsercache isn't a good idea if you have more than a few users using the
wiki at the same time.

links navigation bar not working in Ferefox

I installed Wiki again, and now the problem is gone.
But I still can't figure out what caused it, because the sidebar is exactly the same, and all scripts and
extra lines in monobook.php (in connection with the sidebar) had been removed.
It makes you uneasy to change anything again.
And why problems in Firefox and not in Explorer?

Re: links navigation bar not working in Ferefox

Hi,

Next time copy the monobook skin to a new skin and edit that. That way 
you can always just switch back.

Protected titles howto?


How do you enable MediaWiki's "native protection of nonexistent pages"
mentioned at:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:Protected_titles#Method_1:_Protecting_a_nonexisting_page_.28preferred.29

I've searched meta and mediawiki.org but can't seem to find the
instructions.

I thought it might involve the page MediaWiki:Titleblacklist, but when I
add entries, they don't seem to have an effect (1.13 alpha).  Also
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Special_page#Protected seems to imply
this system message is just an alternate method.

Thanks!

change position navigation bar

Thank you, Alain, 
"#column-one" was indeed what I was looking for.Lowering the personal also (p-personal) gave a much nicer
look.It meant that p-cactions had to be lowered, and the content need a top as well.This way I was able to
align the logo with the tabs.

links navigation bar not working in Ferefox

That wasn't the problem actually: I always keep a file which isn't changed.
I think the working with Mediawiki:sidebar did the damage, in combination with the change of monobook.php.
Why it could not be reserved I don't know (I changed monobook.php back off course).
What struck me before is that the JavaScript suggestions on the monobook.js page didn't work either.
But if you have trouble with the navigation links in Firefox you know what to do.

upload form

Hi,

Is there a way to do a custom upload form which would replace the native 
one?
