Wikizine - number: 36

Technical news
Request for help
New project proposals
Other news
  • [Private Wikipedia] - Wolf Mountain Group now offers servers for sale with Wikipedia installed (or any other project/language) on a configuration with updating software and support for this. With this setup companies and organisations can offer access to Wikipedia content yet exercise control because it allows them to remove topics they find less suitable for their audiences.
A very special function is machine translation of the project installed to many native American languages like Cherokee and Comanche. Support for Spanish, German and Latin are expected. These translations are also available on the website Wikigadugi.
  • [Wikizine] - In an attempt to get more people from different project and languages exposed to Wikizine nearly all wikis will be visited with a request to support Wikizine in the coming weeks or months. Thanks to wikis who agreed to help recently will be included in the footer weekly.
Did you know ...

... that you can add functionality to MediaWiki yourself?

MediaWiki has the option that you as a user can override the default settings and change the behavior, add functionality and the look of the wiki by editing your [[Special:Mypage/monobook.js]] and[[Special:Mypage/monobook.css]].

There is a useful javascript extension called "popups". It has many functions. Highlights are; preview of the page where a hyperlink leads to. So you can check an edit done by an anonymous without the need to open that page. A "roll back" option like the sysops have to revert easy edits.
