MediaWiki…

Filed under: General — Bryan @ 7:06 pm

Well, I’ve been diving into MediaWiki at work trying to do some crash immersion and I’ll have to say that I’m pretty irritated at the documentation out there. I’m not really sure who to blame on this though. In short I wanted to create a portal, so I went about looking for guides. Mayny of the guides appear to just reprint the Wikipedia documentation.

Well… that would be great if the Wikipedia documentation didn’t rest upon the existence of dozens of layers of templates to work the way they instruct.

This effectively makes the documentation useless for all installs of MediaWiki since they don’t come pre-installed with all of that very same documentation.

Sigh… I did just find a site today that might be promising called WikiUniversity, but it’s going to take me a few days to see what it’s got.

Share and Enjoy
