Help set up Extension:SiteMatrix please

Jomagalo (talkcontribs)

I would appreciate some help configuring this extension. I am not sure what to put in the required variables.

I have added in LocalSettings.php:

wfLoadExtension( 'SiteMatrix' );

$wgSiteMatrixFile = "/home/dontv/public_html/w/langlist.txt";

With that I see all the languages on the left side of Special:SiteMatrix but the right part is empty

The other variables are not clear how to configure them or how to obtain the data they request.

thank you in advance

extension:SiteMatrix contains information and links on how to configure various variables used by that extension. That extension is generally very specific to Wikimedia, and you may have trouble if your wikifarm is not configured the same way Wikimedia's is (Using the SiteConfiguration object in $wgConf)

The information contained in this extension does not clarify how to configure all the variables. Could you give an example?

You would also need to customise $wgSiteMatrixSites to list the different wikis in your own wikifarm.

How do you get the list of different wikis or with what command can I generate the file to feed that variable?

umm, its your wikifarm. It is generally assumed that you know what sites make up your own wikifarm.

If you have specific questions about a variable, ask specificly. Its unlikely anyone will answer generic questions that amount to some unspecified thing somewhere is unclear.
