Showing Code

Math is done in MediaWiki with an extension that looks like <math>expr</math>. You don't seem to have Texvc installed so this isn't working...probably would be easy to compile into your setup.

I was looking around to see if anyone had implemented an extension which would help with code in the same way, since it's lame to put it in <pre>expr</pre>. I found one syntax hi-liter. It does not seem to support C++ and it has a "quirk" that you have to put the language in (e.g. <code><perl/>expr</code>)

The extension is open source so I guess one could adapt it. Interestingly there seem to be some wikis that are superior out of the box, including a commercial one called "Confluence". Metaeducation 10:19, 16 January 2006 (Pacific Standard Time)

Image Uploading

I'm getting a message when I try to go to special pages and upload a file which says that image uploading is disabled... Metaeducation 10:22, 16 January 2006 (Pacific Standard Time)

Subpages

The Wikipedia does not approve of the use of subpages in "article space", while Wikibooks uses subpages heavily. I think it is disabled by default in the "main namespace". If you want to follow Wikibooks conventions (which probably makes sense here), you'll want to turn subpages on for the main namespace.

There are features for doing relative paths of subpages, like a file system—which is certainly better for the page authors, since namespaces have to be retyped each time. However it does not appear that the page move feature moves "child" subpages when you move a parent. I find that a bit sad because that would be one of the big benefits. Seems the feature could be added relatively easily, though...? Metaeducation 18:15, 18 January 2006 (Pacific Standard Time)

Logins with no password

I noticed it was possible to create logins with no password. This account is an example of that. It seems to be true of other fresh MediaWiki installs... Nopasswordtest 18:27, 19 January 2006 (Pacific Standard Time)
