There are several problems with this idea that almost guarantee your article will get deleted, and quickly. Wikipedia is not a software directory. It's most definitely not meant to be part of your, or anyone else's, SEO strategy. There's a baseline notability requirement for articles. Basically, "Does this thing matter? Is it important? etc." You don't say ...

The stuff in the right sidebar is called Knowledge Graph. In short, Google (and other search engines) are putting focus on "entities" (things: well known people, businesses, landmarks), facts, and relationships between them. Information shown in Knowledge Graph tends to be a blend of information from Wikipedia, Freebase, Google+ and some structured data (...

If you're aggregating from other sources, it doesn't matter if you think the way it's combined is unique and a valuable user experience - it's still flying pretty close to duplicate content. I'd be more worried about that than linking out to Wikipedia. There's no way you would be tripping any SEO red flags by linking out to a source site like that. Citing ...

I have used moodle for a while, it is an open-source CMS that should provide all that you need.

Found the answer: https://en.wiki.bluespice.com/wiki/Manual:Extension/PageAccess You add this anywhere in the source code of the page: <bs:pageaccess groups="secure1,secure2" /> Where "secure1" and "secure2" are the names of groups that you want to have access to the page.

TWiki stores content directly in the file system. Look for twiki/data and twiki/pub directories. The twiki/data has directories representing TWiki webs (workspaces). Those webs contain files representing the wiki page data. There is a .txt file with page content, and a .txt,v file with page history. For example, page SlicedBread in the Eng web will be at ...

Configure the wiki job queue. Link colour is not updated immediately across all of your wiki to save on resources.

You may be able to use Wordpress with Buddypress and a plugin like this courseware one.

When you say "create a Wiki" it's not clear whether you mean create your own site using some wiki software, or creating a page on Wikipedia for your app. You will not be able to do the latter as Wikipedia pages require some basic level of notability, which you wouldn't have as a new app. Creating your own wiki for your app is a feasible idea as it could ...

While researching to ask this question, I came across this bug report, which seems to describe the same problem (see the "Comments" section). So apparently this is indeed a bug in MoinMoin. Hopefully they'll fix it sometime soon...

If you know some Python (or are not afraid to learn) you should approach this with pywikibot. You can loop through wiki.allpages() and you can add some logic to decide whether to delete a page or not. Good criteria: Does the page contain specific words? E.g. related to drugs or porn. Does the page have wikilinks to other pages? Does the page have links ...

Not necessarily but it would require considerable time to tweak your wiki. See here: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Multilingual_MediaWiki Note that if you had both languages on the same wiki, you would not be able to: Getting an index of all pages or recent changes across languages Maintaining a single watchlist across multiple languages Using special ...

The installation instructions are wrong; I’ve fixed them. Replace this line… require_once "$IP/extensions/BlogPage/BlogPage.php"; … with this line: require_once "$IP/extensions/BlogPage/Blog.php";

As noted by Waldir: You should specify the link and the link label as system messages and create language code subpages of said messages for them to follow user interface language. See the manual for more. For instance * portal-url|portal with [[MediaWiki:Portal]] being "Portale" and [[MediaWiki:Portal/en]] "Portal" (on an Italian wiki). You can also use ...

You can't make accounts with Hugo. Hugo just generates static webpages from your frontmatter and markdown details. It parses template style to specific layout that you have provided in your frontmatter. You can create a wiki (By creating own wiki style) with Hugo but you can't make accounts for login and signup. It is not a CMS that saves login databases, ...

MediaWiki has a storage abstraction layer that makes this technically possible (the linked page talks about using external databases but it's actually not limited to that; see the documentation of the ExternalStore class for details). You would have to write your own ExternalStoreMedium subclass. The wiki would still have an RDBMS backend, of course, but the ...

I think there isn't (using off-shelf software) for the following reasons. Sql and git are very different storage systems by design. Sql is about storing lots of deeply interconnected data in a single big lump of a file. Thus allowing efficient indexing and searching. Git is about storing programming text in many small files with the unwritten assumption ...

I asked myself the same question a time ago and decided to create several sites only in AMP. They had different content (static, blog, forum...). In general, I achieved better user metrics (time on site, pages per session, bounce rate) and improved some SEO ranking. Best of all, I had only one version of the page to maintain. On the other hand, the ...

Any considerations should depend on your business, business model, website functionality, and so on. Keep in mind that as long as you collect personal data from users through your website, a Privacy Policy is required by law. It does not matter what platform you're using - MediaWiki, WordPress etc. (We've blogged about the major privacy laws here: CalOPPA ...

Filtering for vulgar images is one of the hardest things to do and gets into some very complicated image analysis requirements. The issue here is that what constitutes a vulgar image is very subjective and hard (though not impossible) to detect and filter out. There are a wide range of methods used online and I will cover a few of the more common methods ...

There is a SkinPerPage extension that serves exactly this purpose: to force a particular skin on a given page. In short: (1) Download the extension, unpack files in /wiki-folder/extensions/ (2) Add wfLoadExtension( 'SkinPerPage' ); instruction to your LocalSettings.php (3) Add <skin>skin-name</skin> tag to the page that you need to show a ...

Disable per-user skin settings with $wgHiddenPrefs[] = 'skin'; then set $wgDefaultSkin dynamically.

Most likely, it takes time for the server to apply the updates to the site. If you edit the main page, it most likely implies that the article exists and is not spam temporarily. It's hard to explain, but the server basically has a "hole" which allows for your site to be valid upon edit. I believe if you wait for a while, the link should automatically ...

No, you can't create a namespace without editing your wiki's configuration. If you create a page titled "A:B" where "A" is not a valid namespace, "A:B" will just be a page in main namespace (namespace 0).

I found the solution The error: Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_convert_encoding() was because of the absence of php Multibyte Support in the server. By installing php-mbstring-5.3.3-27.el6_5.2.x86_64.rpmand restarting apache solved the issue. DONT FORGET TO RESTART APACHE. Because I wasted a lot of time without the restart.

This is most likely all about an extension. The question isn’t mentioning if you are using Semantic MediaWiki, are you? If yes, you will have to find ways to know the list of whatever that is (doi:# ???) and handle this.
