Download Link

I changed the download link to Media: so that it will generate the appropriate Save As dialog box. I also changed the file extensions to a zip file since you cannot upload a php file to the TNG Wiki--Ken Roy 07:00, 18 September 2015 (CDT)

Thanks Ken, I'd forgotten about that! (I hope you'll get notified of this reply!) Chris Moss 12:59, 18 September 2015 (CDT)
no email notification was received. But then I am not watching this page.--Ken Roy 15:22, 18 September 2015 (CDT)
On wikipedia there's a module Notifications which reacts to a mention of your (linked) name on a talk page. It's very useful as you might be drawn into a discussion on a page you've never even visited. It would be nice to have it here. Chris Moss 15:09, 19 September 2015 (CDT)

Notifications

Echo (Notifications) appears to be an extension for MediaWiki 1.22+. The TNG Wiki is currently at MediaWiki 1.16.5--Ken Roy 11:03, 20 September 2015 (CDT)

That seems to be a problem. I'm not exactly sure whether Echo simply improves what was there before or whether it brought in that feature for the first time, but I can't see any prior extensions on that topic. Chris Moss 14:28, 20 September 2015 (CDT)
I started to do the upgrade to MediaWiki 1.23.7 earlier this year but ran into a major issue where I cannot get my WikiEditor Toolbar button additions to work in this version of MediaWiki and then got caught up in moving from Texas to Florida. I just downloaded MediaWiki 1.23.10. Yes I know there is a more current version available, but MW 1.23 is the one marked Legacy Long Term Support (LTS). Chris, if you want to help with the MediaWiki 1.23 upgrade send me an email directly.--Ken Roy 15:01, 20 September 2015 (CDT)
