Hello,

I have just installed MediaWiki and my Main page does not have a side bar.

instead all of the sidebar information is "inline" and under the main page content.

What settings do I need to change to get the cool sidebar like you have?

it looks like it has the information... it is just not rendering it in the correct manner.

so... I see the "Max" message... but which .htaccess file do need to change ... there are quite a few of them ?

this is what I typed: http://localhost/Wiki%5Cmediawiki-1.26.0/load.php

This is what I got:

/* This file is the Web entry point for MediaWiki's ResourceLoader:
   <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/ResourceLoader>. In this request,
   no modules were requested. Max made me put this here. */

Ok, that's fine, but you should probably look at each request that contains in the URL "only=styles". Open them and see if it has some error message at the top of them (you may need to set $wgShowExceptionDetails to true to see a detailed error message), or if they're just completely blank pages

You can access easily those URLs by opening the developer's console of your browser (usually hitting F12 or F11) and reloading the page while you're on the network tab

This sounds similar to the problem I had yesterday. Try switching to a different skin. If that fixes things, then you have the same issue I do and I've opened a ticket for it. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T119934

Any other possible reasons this may be occurring?

Ryan7273 - this is EXACTLY what is occurring with my site as well ...

BTW... I tried to create an account... but I have been "black listed" for some reason... (not a very friendly site :-( )

I have an account now - Yay !
