'''Poem Extension''' (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Poem). A useful kludge giving you the <nowiki><poem></poem></nowiki> tag. Inside this tag, a single carriage return behaves like a single carriage return. This makes copying and pasting many text documents into the wiki less of a bother.

Revision as of 02:39, 4 December 2009

Here are some proposed wiki updates. Discussion welcome.

As of 12-2-09 Noisebridge wiki is running MediaWiki: 1.11.2.

Update to the most current (1.15.1 currently). This will allow image links to work, and wgEnableMWSuggest to work.

# Enable suggestions while typing in search boxes. See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgEnableMWSuggest
$wgEnableMWSuggest = true;

# improves search functionality a tiny bit http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting
$wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting = true;

# Tells Mediawiki to use ETag Headers, decreasing irrelevant page loads. See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgUseETag YSlow says the wiki doesn't use ETags right now.
$wgUseETag = true;

# Enable the basic file cache for static pages for non-logged-in visitors
$wgUseFileCache = true;
$wgFileCacheDirectory = "/INSTALLATION-DIRECTORY/tmp-cache";
$wgShowIPinHeader = false;


# This might make for better performance, compressing html before serving, especially when using the file cache
$wgUseGzip = true;

# saves a couple database queries but fragile if $wgArticlePath is nonstandard
$wgEnableSidebarCache = true;
