Hello, I'm trying to update some of my extensions to work with the
ResourceLoader in 1.17, and I can't work out how to get jQuery to load.
I've tried the example at

$out->addModules( array( 'jquery.ui' ) ); But nothing I do will actually get the script to load and become available, can anyone tell me the new syntax to get jQuery there? Thanks, Aran  1 Aug 09:30 2011 ### Re: "Ask the Developers" panel at Wikimania On 31.07.2011 19:56, Brion Vibber wrote: > I suppose I can make that :D > > -- brion On 31.07.2011 17:21, Roan Kattouw wrote: > I'm in! > > Roan Thanks guys!

Hi, due to our rather "aged" target audience only 15% of our wiki users have installed the djvu plugin from Lizardtech. Some doesn´t understand that a special has to be installed, others have technical or/and emotional problems with installing any third (browser) software, add-ons, plugins, viewer from "somewhere"... So my question: is there a way to use in Mediawiki a java based solution like javadjvu http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/javadjvu and if so, can some give a advice for a current supported java based djvu viewer and how to integrate in Mediawiki? Project javadjvu seems to be dead?! Uwe (Baumbach) U.Baumbach <at> web.de ___________________________________________________________ Schon gehört?

Yes I'm using both jQuery and jQueryUI in some of my extensions and
they've broken in MediaWiki 1.17 because neither of them are being
loaded any more. I've tried many different variations of using
$wgOut->addModules and setting items in$wgResourceModules but no matter
what I do I can't seem to get the jQuery scripts to load. The browsers
error log just says that the $, jQuery and other functions aren't defined.

### Re: "Ask the Developers" panel at Wikimania

Fish bowl is easy. You have two concentric circles of chairs. The inner circle are the people speaking. When
someone in the inner circle has spoken their piece, they get up, and somebody from the outer circle can move
in. Less pressure on the speakers to say something. If you have nothing sensible to say, you get up!

Thanks guys! Let's talk about the details during the Dev Days. And perhaps we
can shanghai one or two more folks for the panel. Any suggestions?

### LaTeX Formula in Math Extension with Supporting Arabic Digits and scripts in Wikipedia

I'm one of the users of Farsi Wikipedia. I've been wondering to add
thesupporting of Farsi Digits and Scripts in Math Extension of MediaWiki (in
LaTeX mode).

Arabi, is a good package under LaTeX that supports Arabic or Persian
digits and scripts. this pacakge is available in MiKTeX 2.5 and newer pacakges

http://www.mail-archive.com/ctan-ann <at> dante.de/msg00778.html

http://www.tug.org/texlive/Contents/live/texmf-dist/doc/latex/arabi/user_guide.pdf

For testing a sample file, please go to

and copy-paste this code to the blank Area and click the "Start LaTeX" button:

% Start of the Code
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1,LFE,LAE]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[farsi,arabic,english]{babel}
\TOCLanguage{farsi}

\makeatletter
%due to a bug in ARABI in which the command \textRL is not
%changed to write Farsi though the main TOC language is Farsi.
\def\textRL#1{{\expandafter\ <at> farsi <at> R{#1}}}

yea, the mechanics are easy enough, but i have the impression that you need to
have a bit of experience to actually make it work. especially if the outer
circle is 50 people - or 200, who knows. Also, we'll probably not be able to
change the room layout too much, so circles may not be possible at all. I'll ask
dror about that if i see him tonight.
