Re: Area51 MediaWiki Integration

Thanks for the info MichaelC.

Still kind of interested to see how it was done, but if it isn't an ideal then the extension I linked to at the MediaWiki Wiki works fairly well.

Re: Area51 MediaWiki Integration

I know there isn't any phpBB specific code on the Area51 forums for the Mediawiki, but the MediaWiki itself probably looks at phpBB sessions and decides how to handle logins on MediaWiki. I'm mostly interested in the custom code / extension on the MediaWiki that was used.

Re: Area51 MediaWiki Integration

Forums that were not modified since the convert didn't have the quick-mod tools at all. (all I saw was the default Moderator Control Panel near the top). So...

Deleting Topics is Hard..

There is no easy way to do it. When viewing a topic.. there is no quick delete, or quick move, or quick lock. The only way I know to actually delete a topic is to go to the forum, and hit moderator control panel, then find the topic and click delete. It is the same for moving a topic. Locking a post...
