MediaWiki is the wiki softwareW that powers Appropedia, as well as Wikipedia, other Wikimedia FoundationW projects, and many other wikis across the internet.

Extensions[edit | edit source]

MediaWiki is written primarily in the PHPW scripting language. A large number of extensions are available, which add more functions to a MediaWiki wiki. See Special:Version for the list of extensions currently installed on Appropedia.

MediaWiki namespace[edit | edit source]

MediaWiki is also a standard namespaceW prefix on all MediaWiki wikis by default, including Appropedia. The MediaWiki namespace contains pages that define many user interface elements. For example, MediaWiki:Common.css contains CSSW style classes that control the appearance of many templates on Appropedia.

Only users who are administrators can edit pages in the MediaWiki namespace.
