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 $wgSitenameManual:$wgSitename is assumed. An alias for this namespace is "Project". The associated talk namespace is specified by $wgMetaNamespaceTalkManual:$wgMetaNamespaceTalk.

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


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

$wgMetaNamespace = 'Project';
