references?

How to work with references? Could you reply with minimal hint.
There is about 1000 references to various articles in my book. I would like
to make a separate page listing them all.

1) I would like that any changes in this page would reflect in all book
contents. I.e. if i change the ref2 to ref7, i would like that all ref2
entries in all book would be renamed to ref7.

2) Additionally i would like to have double reference.
I mean that if i insert the reference to some page from references list, i
want that the link to this page/place appears at the reference in the
reference list. I.e. in the reference list page i will be able to see where
every reference is cited in the text.
I would like that back references would be generated automatically. Any time
when i am inserting the ref.No from the references list to some page i would
like that information about this entrance as a backward reference would
appear below ref.No.

3) Additionally i would like that in any page automatically at the bottom
would be generated and updated a  list of references mentioned in that page.

Summarizing once more, the questions are:

1) How to create references list for whole book. Change in main list should
be reflected in all book.
2) How to create backward automatic self-updating references? .
3) How to create self updating list of refernces in every page. Self
updating from that page, where every reference can be updated from main
references list.

references2 ?

4)
One more question.
The books is a review about nanowires. It is based on approx  thousand
article careful review.
How i should escape from blacklisting references?
Most of references for some reasons become blacklisted, while trying
uploading the initial draft, which has to be formatted.

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Nanowires

It is possible to observe hundred blacklisted lines if you scroll down and
remove <ref> ....</ref> quotations.
Or just one blacklisting notice if you add word </references> to the end of
document.

Re: SQL: Stored Procedures and MediaWiki

Hi Robert

As far as I understand, MediaWiki does not use stored procedures, for
compatibility reasons. MediaWiki only requires mysql 4.0, which iirc does not
support stored procedures at all. Also, stored procedures can not (easily) be
ported to other database systems like sqlight.

If you want to use stored procedures in your extension, I don't see anything
mediawiki specific to observe. It should works simply as you would expect it
from mysql. The only question is how the procedures can be created cleanly when
the extension is being installed, or changed when the extension is updated.
Perhaps someone here knows about this?

A quick search through the extensions on mediawiki.org indicates that
Extension:Geoserver uses stored procedures, but with postgres, not mysql.

Re: Using java applet for DJVU files ? (Retry)

Brion,

thanks for response.

> Can you go into a little more detail on what an applet viewer might be used
> for? 

The goal is to provide "inexperienced" users functions adaequate to
"old" LizardTech, now Celartem viewer add-on like zooming, page
scrolling and so on for a use in connection with our mini-DigiBib
(transkription of historical/genealogical handwritings and so on).

I agree, for simply viewing a page JPG conversion is often sufficient.
But bad scanned sources should be at least simple zoomable.

This - without additional manual installation of some add-on by this
mentioned user. JRE is installed in many cases, a transparent applet
would be good.

I understand (may be wrong) that the LizardTech add-on downloads and
shows only needed page(s) at once from a given remote DJVU file too -
why a applet couldn´t do so?

Concerning your security headache I think it is more comprehensible for
JavaScript (sandboxes) then for Java, and MediaWiki is "swimming" in
JavaScript. But ultimate decision makes the user.

Re: alternative PDF exporter

Thanks for the replies.

Håkon,

First I would like to thank you for the effort you and your colleagues have
put into PrinceXML (and Opera as well). I read through the Norwegian wiki
and I must say that it would be a great approach to fixing the issue. It
would be quite an undertaking to move all of the "style" tags into a class
however and would take way more time than I have to do a complete wiki fix.
Since the most important wiki I maintain very rarely has any back end
changes made to it, it would not be that difficult to simply rip out the
wiki markup before it is sent to the browser, clean it up with some regular
expressions, and then send it to the PDF renderer.

For my current projects, I could use Prince on 2 of the non-commercial
wiki's I maintain, however my other wiki site is commercial and there simply
isn't enough in my budget for the license. It is a wonderful binary and does
the job exactly as expected during my testing, but I just do not have any
say so over the money for this project. Now that I see that this seems to be
a pretty common problem, I may be able to start a new side project that
could help remedy this problem, but as stated before, I have several
projects in line before I could even begin thinking about helping out with
the changes to mediawiki itself. I see that Jon Harald Søby is the lead on
this project and it it is still in the draft process, but I am very
interested in the idea and will keep up with the process even though I
cannot contribute at this moment in time.

Brion,

This is exactly what i'm looking to do. At the moment, I just need to render
