Dear @Johentsch , I' ve recently setup a WikiBase on my own as well, so let me try to help you, if I can. Please note I installed it manually not using the containerized version, but I hope I can still be of help Let me try to help you, if I can.

We discussed this in private, but it is appropriate we also update the task here.
So the file for LibreOffice Impress is ready to be used: it will be published on the website and you can find it here.
Aug 12 2020
Attached please find the first draft for comments.
Aug 11 2020
I would volunteer to prepare it.
Is there a Visual Identity guide I can read? I know the logo is there, but what about the fonts, the color combinations, the general look and feel?

Dear @Lydia_Pintscher , may I suggest tot keep the sitelink functionality on Wikibase Registry?
I do not completely agree that sitelink are not needed: I would point out that sitelink would help in getting more information on a specific item, without duplicating information, but easily linked them on Wikipedia and other sister projects wikis.
You are totally right they looks ugly now, but this is simply because they are not properly configured.

Dear @Bugreporter may I kindly ask you if you can still help with the other questions above? Or can you mention someone that can help?
So I can finish the work on the instruction page and close this task

Dear @danshick-wmde , just as a brief introduction, please be informed that I started about one year ago to work on my own WikiBase instance: as I was an absolute beginner I scanned all the documentation I could find.
Along the way I found myself stuck several times in configuring WikiBase and, where I personally found the documentation lacking information, I tried to integrate it with information to help fellow beginners like me.
Apr 25 2020
Dear @Lydia_Pintscher I would work on this task, as I believe the documentation is pretty much there and only needs minimum adjustment.
But I need one clarification before starting: in what form should this documentation be written and where should it be placed?
Are wikitext and the Installation manual ok?
Apr 21 2020
We discussed this at length in T218282. Is the current documentation in the installation manual not clear enough?
In that section of the manual we wrote a clear explanation of what a SiteLInk is, how to set them up and how to disable them.
It seems to me it answers all the questions mentioned here.
For your information, I just added a brief explanation of this feature in the "Advanced Configuration" page

@Skizzerz may I ask if you have any news on this issue?
Was the log useful? Do you need any other information to further investigate the problem?
Is there anything else I can help with?

The Gerrit patch was not automatically referenced here, so here's the link https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/extensions/MediaWikiAuth/+/565738
Jan 18 2020
The fact that wfResetSessionID() is not available in MW 1.34 means this extension is no longer usable with the current and upcoming MW versions until it is updated?
As I see the new version is in the works for years and not yet ready, can anyone suggest an alternative extension to allow unified accounts on different Wikis?
Jan 16 2020
As I am setting up a Wikibase Repository/Client pair instance with the latest version, I would like to start improve documentation.
I actaully started a few hours ago by clarifying https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikibase/Installation/Advanced_configuration#Required_settings
Nov 23 2019
As this function would be very significant for a project of mine, I would like to work on it.
I am willing to put effort in implementing such a function, but I have some difficulties to get started with it.
I read above that the function already exist in Wikibase API, so I started by looking at the documentation here https://doc.wikimedia.org/Wikibase/master/php/classWikibase_1_1Repo_1_1Api_1_1QuerySearchEntities.html but it seems I am a little lost.
Can somebody point me in the right direction so then I can start the work on it?

I read no comments, additions or complains in the past several days, so I proceeded updating the documentation as proposed.

I have published a revised version of the documentation in my sandbox page here https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Lucamauri/Sandbox/ParserTime
You are welcome to make suggestion on it before I replace the current version at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:ParserFunctions##time

As I haven't received any comments or complains and the modification to README.md has been merged, I believe it is safe to close the task.
I have been able to successfully run OAuth and OAuthAuthentication on my MediaWiki installation and I hope my experience will help others as well with the improvement made to the documentation.
May 4 2019
Apr 23 2019
I updated the documentation here https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OAuthAuthentication and proposed a small change to https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-OAuthAuthentication/pull/1
Apr 17 2019
Dear @Reedy I see this task is currently unassigned and open for quite some time now.
As I already worked a bit to improve documentation, does it make sense that I claim it and and work with the userbase to update the instructions to a satisfactory level for admin and users as well?
Apr 16 2019
The modification only takes few lines of code in a couple of files. I tested this on my local MediaWiki test installation and, if there is no specific reason not to have this function, I would commit it myself.

Installation instructions were likely useless because they were incomplete.
They did non mentioned the need to install php-curl, the need to run update.php and where to point the "callback URL" on the OAuth site.
Based on my own research and experience, I added a few lines of instructions, hopefully explaining enough for any user to make the extension work

Please allow me another comment after @Addshore edit above.
My personal impression with the documentation is that it is too directive without really explaining: the user is guided doing several tasks one after the other, but there is no explanation on what the user is actually doing and how this would reflect in the Wikibase operations.
Mar 17 2019
After my personal experience in setting up a customized Wikibase repository, I wrote a quick explanation on how to enable Direct Access using the SiteLinks.
I placed the text in the "Advanced configuration" page.
Feb 24 2019
I just setup my own Wikibase installation using two instances as per the original message of @KitsuneSolar .
I created one wiki where both Repository and Client are installed and it worked like a charm even with table prefix. The other instance only contains Client and in fact I had the same issue explained here: the client only look for wb_items_per_site without any table prefix.
