Provides good and simple installation instructions. At first, when I got to the last line I wondered "ok, so that was it but how do I use it?". There are no usage instruction or details of what it does except "This plugin allows you to log into Joomla and also automatically be logged into MediaWiki" and it really is that simple. The plug-in logs you in to MediaWiki, and you do not need to have an account on MediaWiki first. Also when registering at your MediaWiki site, it redirects you to your Joomla registration page.


Works beautifully!

Brilliant extension! As another user has said, it's an essential part of my "holy grail" for building community websites.

PS: Is it compatible with MediaWiki 1.17.x?

Thanks a lot, awesome extension

Works flawlessly once you get it working. My only problem was our version of MediaWiki is quite old and I had some trouble getting it to work due to changes the newer versions. If you have MediaWiki versions 1.13.0 and older, in the AuthJoomla2.php, go to around line 55, find the text 'UserLoadFromSession' and replace it with 'AutoAuthenticate' and it should work like a charm.

its not working with subdomains.

I read this point late when i finish working all the settings :(

althought that its a nice solution.

Hope soon this issue will be fixed.

Thank you

Hi, This is an exellent plugin for joomla 1.5, but if you want to intergrate it with joomla1.6 , just change the function name in mediawiki.php file.

replace onLoginUser function to onUserLogin and OnLogoutUser to OnUserLogout. and it will work better in joomla1.6 as well

Works great

10 minutes, and it was set up! Have been waiting for that so long.

Had some trouble with the configuration at first. It turned out to be the media cookie prefix that was the problem. A look on the dutch instructions lead me on to the right path.

2.3. Cookie prefix: the same as the mediawiki Prefix (the default is the mediawiki database name + prefix (mw_))

Should perhaps be clearified:

2.3. Cookie prefix: MUST be the same as the mediawiki Cookie Prefix. The MediaWiki default is prefix (mw_) + the mediawiki database name (mw_databasename). Though it could be changed in the wikis LocalSettings.php with the string: "$wgCookiePrefix".

When I figured that out it worked as a charm.
