Hoi Flominator, kannst Du wenn's passt kurz in den IRC kommen und mich ansprechen? Ich hab da noch ein paar Fragen „vorab“ ;-) --:Bdk: 16:08, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

Welcome aboard :-) --:Bdk: 20:28, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
Thank you very much. --Flominator 20:36, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi Flominator, I am trying to implement the FileIndex extension in my wiki but I do not know how to install the approrpiate indexing tools to the /usr/bin/ directory. There are no instructions on the extension page that explain how to do that. Would you be able to point me in the right direction or add some instructions on the extensions page for doing that? Thank you for your help -- 17:12, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

What kind of system do you have? Debian? Ubuntu? SuSe? unknown? --Flominator 06:58, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Flominator, I have a question... I want to add chat box above or below the copyrights, but I don't know how. Can you help me? -- 03:24, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't have a clue. Try Project:Support desk. --Flominator 09:33, 9 October 2008 (UTC)

MIME type detection[edit]

RE: Manual:Mime_type_detection#MIME_type_validation

I may misunderstand how the mime.types file is used. On the one hand it's a list of extensions which are allowed for a given MIME type; but since it says "vice versa," it's also used to map extensions to MIME types. In the least it's somewhat ambiguous, but it seemed to be better to specify the more specific MIME type rather than allow the "kludge" of ODF documents being identified as application/zip. --Eric Myers 15:44, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Eric, sorry for the late reply. The thing is, that ODF documents are in fact zip files. --Flominator 09:45, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Log Searches Extension[edit]

Possibly a wonderful extension. With the release of Mediawiki 1.13.x is it possible to update this extension and/or the instruction page? Greatly appreciated if possible. Thanks WW.

Quick Favour[edit]

Do you know the html equivalent for this {{PAGENAME}}. I am asking becuase my wiki page title doesn't appear on FaceBook so I was going to do a extension to all pages. Sachein 19:21, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't know, what you mean (if you are not talking about <title>). --Flominator 19:40, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

For example:

[[Cars]] <a href="/en/cars" title="Tea">Cars</a>
{{PAGENAME}} ???

Sachein 19:53, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

As far as I know there is no such command in html. You could only try go the some parts of the title-tag via Javascript. --Flominator 12:29, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

FileIndexer failing[edit]


  • Mediawiki 1.13.3
  • PHP 5.2.6-3ubuntu4.5 (apache2handler)
  • MySQL 5.0.75-0ubuntu10.2

I'm doing the following:

I go to the Special:FileIndexer page Copy the page name, e.g. Image:File.txt in the edit box Then do create,

I get the following:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method Article::newfromid() in /var/lib/mediawiki/extensions/FileIndexer/FileIndexer_body.php on line 131

Is there a way that I can fix this?

Regards, Johannekie

Hi, I don't know, since I stopped working at the place, where I used MediaWiki and this extension. Please post your request at Extension talk:FileIndexer. Looks like they changed something in MediaWiki --Flominator 18:16, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply, I'll do so.[edit]

quick question, and i might just be nitpicking. in your backup script you have:

zip -r ./backup/${FNAME}.zip images/ ${FNAME}.sql LocalSettings.php extensions/ -x  backup/

i was wanting to change zip to tar, since i'm a unix only person, but i was not quite understanding why you had the -x backup/. since backup/ isn't specified as one of the locations be downloaded, why then does it need to be excluded?

the command i was planning on using to substitute is:

tar -czvf ./backup/${FNAME}.tar.gz images/ ${FNAME}.sql LocalSettings.php extensions/

just double checking in case i'm missing something obvious.

Hi there, you are right. That one was from the days, when I added the whole directory to the archive. Thanks, --Flominator 06:55, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Some baklava for you![edit]

Baklava - Turkish special, 80-ply.JPEG Your is greatly appreciated. However, I would like to move my mediawiki to another Raspberry Pi, not to a Windows PC. Have you, by any chance, written a

[Google translation] Ihre wird sehr geschätzt. Ich möchte mein Mediawiki jedoch auf einen anderen Raspberry Pi verschieben, nicht auf einen Windows-PC. Haben Sie zufällig eine geschrieben?

Thanks, SteveRMann SteveRMann (talk) 21:59, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi SteveRMann, sorry for the late reply. It should not be that complex: Unzip everything and copy it over a new installed MediaWiki. Also import the mysql file and you're done. Good luck, --Flominator (talk) 16:55, 21 March 2020 (UTC)
