Need some help.I need to create a page that will query external sql data and display the result on that page.

Also any user can edit the data and will automatically update the external sql database/.

Is there already such available extension ?

cargo does not work since it does not allow to edit text but allows to edit parser functions which is difficult for layman

Hi there :) We're running an installation of MediaWiki for our local community space. I'm interested in reporting a bug about the configuration of the 'mobile' skin, Minerva Neue, or asking the developers about it. Could someone point me in the direction of the best place to talk to this group?

I'm also interested in the design of MediaWiki, does anyone know of a good place to follow the work happening there and get involved?

@Equivalentideas you can create a bug report here in Phabricator and add MinervaNeue to it in the Project field.

for design, do you mean architectural stuff, or user-interface stuff?

Thanks @Samwilson that's really helpful. I might try and sit in on the next meeting.

So I was looking up on how Wikimedia uses Kubernetes for Toolsforge, I was wondering if using OpenShift Origin would be a good use case for Toolsforge?

The provide Ingress, routing, and some CD as well if needed, works well with git

I am sort of new on here. I came from wikia, but the staff members are very rude. I would like to know how do you create a whole website on one pacific topic?

I still don't understand how and why people find this room. Please elaborate and be more explicit, because this is likely the wrong place. :)

@Sen-Sai: I still don't understand how and why people find this room. And why people end up in this place instead of a proper support forum...

Well my first observation :

Anyone can ask questions about MediaWiki here. Recommend use English to talk.

Second, I am a MediaWiki extension developer and from the main page I clicked on "code repository".
As I was asked to be a bit more involved in the MW community, I thought.. lets join this room

That is it in a nutshell :-)

@Sen-Sai: Makes sense, but I still don't understand how you *found* this room. Because anyone can create chat rooms in Conpherence (and it's still unclear to me why this Conpherence chat room was created, in addition to already existing venues like IRC or https://discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org/ but that's not your fault of course). :)

We use Phabricator in the office as well so top left I clicked on conpherence rooms and picked the one that made the most sense :)

Ah. Heh, thanks for explaining! :)

I am test admin in Khowar Wikipedia incubator project, I am facing errors in Module, Template and wikidata, can anybody fix these errors?

mostly of the Templates, Modules has been fixed by --Liuxinyu970226, thanks for that, except for those which includes "attempt to index field 'wikibase' (a nil value)" (which we are still waiting for Wikidata supports). can anybody fix the wikidata supports for Khowar Language. thanks --~~~~

@Rachitrali The key to this problem is to let wikidata support Incubator, see also T54971.

@RezeSoldier thanks
