Add your questions here. Hopefully as we find answers we can add them here too.

  1. How do I create a template?
    Creating Templates: I found a guide how to create templates and recall them I think what we want is the subst:template functionality.
  2. How do I upload an image?
    1.Upload the file by using the toolbox
    2.Go to the page where you want to include the image and name it Example.jpg
    3.Push the Embedded file button or type [[File:Example.jpg]] the page
  3. How do we control who can upload images?
  4. Security/Moderation, how do we do this?
  5. How do we organize content?
  6. Do we need spam blockers?
  7. How do we implement one?
  8. Do we want to add groups and subgroups as in the current PhUSE Wiki?
  9. How do we transfer the content from the current Wiki to the new Wiki?
  10. Which templates do we need?
    1. EU conference paper (Template:Paper Template)
    2. EU conference discussion club?
    3. US conference work groups? We should follow the templates from hl7
  11. Navigation - lock down pages before. Prevent orphans.
  12. How to recommend to name pages? When typos etc.
  13. People should be signed in to post to the wiki. Currently anyone, not even just logged in users, can edit pages.
  14. How can we easily create new pages?
    1. We should install the extension InputBox ( This allows to put a box on the MainPage to create a new article.
  15. How do you add a page to the watchlist? (added by Adie...hopefully anyway!). and in adding that question I found I'll amend my does someone without edit access watch a page...or does everyone have edit access?

To Do:

  1. Turn signatures on by default.
  2. Left hand navigation should be updated. Major headers to link in. Mark to investigate. - Done!
 Sidebar content can by seen if you follow MediaWiki:Sidebar but page is protected- Thanks Dan!

  2. Use FlaggedRevs - Dan to install. Installed!
  1. Improve SAS code display. Java Script? VSI Thinking might have some code to share.
  2. How to create a table (rows and columns) in mediawiki - Sascha to test
  1. Clean up and put together wiki for launch
  2. Set up standard side bar - now we know how to edit this
