Lost EDITING new page

Version Info

*	MediaWiki <http://www.mediawiki.org/> : 1.10.0 
*	PHP <http://www.php.net/> : 5.2.0-8+etch11 (apache2handler) 
*	MySQL <http://www.mysql.com/> : 5.0.32-Debian_7etch6-log 

In the last week we have somehow lost the ability to 'edit' a new page.
You can go to a page and edit the whole page or a section of the page.

But If you enter "FOOBAR PAGE" in the search then click on edit new page
you will get a blank page with no header/footer .. nothing (guess that
is what 'blank' means)

Has anyone seen this before?  Ideas on what could change in a system
(outside of mediawiki) to do this?

Is it a publicly accessible wiki? If so, a link would be helpful so we
can see for ourselves.

Suggestions for using MW for a genealogical site

Hi all,

I'd like to set up a genealogical site for our family history society.
Basic requirements are:

   1. shareable wiki (MW, of course)
   2. access & update control (only members will be allowed beyond the
   locked public pages)
   3. genealogical templates (ideally)
   4. import interfaces from other sources of genealogical data.

Any suggestions, recommendations on this?

I'm capable of basic sysadmin & config on MW, plus reasonable editing
skills, but I'm an awful long way from being a guru ....

Re: Special:UserLogin

Hi there. Sorry I can't find how to do this anywhere. How do I edit the
login page Special:UserLogin so that I can add text above the login screen?
Thanks.

Upgrade from 1.10.0 to current release

Outside of the extensions we are using, is there anything we have to
worry about upgrading from 1.10.0 to current release.  Is it as simple
as running scripts?

Thanks

Help setting up a good 'Community of Practice' Wiki

Dear Wikimedia volunteers,

I am currently studying for a Masters degree as a Rotary World Peace  
Fellow in Tokyo, Japan.  I'm very interested in establishing a special  
Community of Practice Wiki in the coming months, to correspond with  
the development of my grassroots sports NPO (Good Global Games).  I  
would like to request some assistance in the set-up process and  
overall precision of our wiki, if any volunteers out there have a  
little time to help.  We have zero funding at this time, due to the  
somewhat groundbreaking nature of our topic (Sports for Peace and  
Reconciliation in Northeast Asia), and very little web tech knowledge  
to draw from.  Any pro bono expertise that you all could offer would  
provide a great lift to our growing organization.

Thank you very much or your attention, and I look forward to hearing  
from anyone out there who might be interested.

Kind regards,

Jason Hutson
