The only other magic word used in these two templates is NAMESPACE. Are you sure you have this already available? "English" is hardcoded as it is, and does not use the transcluded template, so that's why you see it. BASEPAGENAME seems to be working now... The only other thing I can think o...

BASEPAGENAME occurs in two files:

MagicWord.php
Parser.php -> getBaseText should be present in Title.php

I don't think it has anything to do with config settings

Alright, I have added the missing template to get the languages template working.

However the template uses a magic word BASEPAGENAME which was introduce in version 1.7 of MediaWiki. So, in order to see anything happening PHP5 has to be installed and a newer version of MediaWiki

OK. A stub page is simply an unfinished artcile, a page you started so that someone incl. yourself may improve it. Wikipedia has them all over the places. So stubs have nothing to do with multilanguage pages. The language template you pointed to works like so: The base page in English is called &quo...

Oh I see... But this is not quite the same as a multilingual wiki with language links on the left panel. It shouldn't be too difficult to do such a template, providing v1.6 is up to the job. Howver, it would not prevent the random page selector from picking a page in any language but i guess people ...

well someone could add a new column "language" to the page db table and change more or less every single php file that accesses the db. Such a customized version would possibly allow for different languages by adding an additional parameter: something like //wiki/index.php?language=en;titl...

No, not really. How would the wiki know what language an article belongs to if you had only one database? Articles belong to a namespace (main, tlka, image etc) but not to a specific language. Unfortunately, the only way to allow more than one language is to have a database for each of them as well ...

Wikipedia uses a different database and server for each language. Mediawiki is not able to handle more than one language. If you look at the links of wikipedia they always start with en. de. it. ... to link to the appropriate server. What you see on the left side are only interwiki liks that have be...

There are also some templates linking to AL game publisher pages. They start with "AL-". In general a wiki is a great tool but in order to make it efficient and to make it look somewhat serious and professional some rules should be obeyed. Wikipedia members spend a lot of time to amend wro...

New templates

I ahve created a new set of templates starting with "CDL-" for Compacted disk listing. Look at article and script of "Adrenalin" and you get the idea. Feel free to change the color scheme for the contents templates; I just picked rather randomly some bright colours. These templat...

Creating a template is no sorcery. They work basically like #define in C. If you have a template called Template:Test with the definition I am a template and you use it in a normal article script like that for example: {{test}}, no big deal you'll get I am a template, no big deal in the article page...

Hi Would it be possible to upgrade mediawiki... to at least 1.7. We would be able to do some great stuff then... see wikipedia. Also some extension would be great, like parser extensions. They are easy to install and can be hooked up by one line in localsettings.php. However, I am not sure whether i...

Well I hope you can use it.

I don't know how stable it is, though.

Sorry I forgot about the two other disks. They are untouched, i.e. the way MoodST sent them to me.

Enjoy

Hi I think you guys did misunderstand me. MoodST owns an original disk of this French software. He asked me whether I could have a go at it, which I did in nid-2003.

I have hacked SPACK on request by MoudST. It's quite some time ago. MoodST was going to test it to find any glitches in the hack but he had no time to deal with SPACK due to other issues. It don't think it was GFA Basic but possibly compiled GFA code... can't remember. So if you guys could track dow...

OK I had a quick look at the variable range values and fixed it.

The gfa editor loads the variable names now correctly

lp The gfa file I have attached is already fixed as good as I could in this short period of time. All variable names do have the right lengths. Analysing the file in a hex editor shows that clearly. old_hertz| is 9 characters long and the following (r| I believe) is 1 letter. The variable before old...
