The name of the meta namespace (also known as the project namespace), used for pages regarding the wiki itself. If set to false, the value of $wgSitename is assumed. An alias for this namespace is "Project". The associated talk namespace is specified by $wgMetaNamespaceTalk .

Be sure to use underscores instead of spaces, otherwise you will have problems. It is however ok to use spaces in $wgSitename .


If you wanted to use a meta namespace of "Project", you would put in LocalSettings.php :

$wgMetaNamespace = 'Project';
