replace onLoginUser function to onUserLogin and OnLogoutUser to OnUserLogout. and it will work better in joomla1.6 as well
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.
should be only
Despite this, Thanks a lot, since this was exactly what I needed.
* Small - Just 1 Joomla Plugin, 1 in MW and some editing
* small install time in mediawiki
* Works with Community Builder
The documentation could be a little better.
But thats no major issue.
Nice Job Harold, thanks for your help and a great extension
2. Follow the steps in the installation guide
I think it was pretty easy to install this extension, and I am by no means any joomla-wiz.
Now, if only someone could make a descent mediawiki template that fits nicely within the default joomla template (milkyway), that would have been nice :) Then the wiki would really be integrated with joomla :)
I downloaded the required files.
I followed the English Guide at:
Logged to Joomla and since I run my Media Wiki through a Wrapper, clicked on the Menu Item and hey presto, the username that I have not registered with the MediaWiki installation is in bright red at the top.
Seriously Excellent Work.
My biggest problem has been getting things like Joomla 3rd Party FAQ Extensions to work and Other Content out of the Joomla Sections/Categories as I do not wish to fill the Joomla Articles areas up with too much Content as I find it hard to browse and Control.
I had a MediaWiki Installation but have not really used it yet as I really wanted to use it from the Front End of Joomla. As it is in a wrapper I can now.
Case in point: this is an awesome plugin but took more than just "snap, snap" to configure... it is NOT as easy as "install and publish".
Read Harold's instructions first to get an idea:
If I had seen this before I started I would not have taken the plunge... it is tricky.
After all my labours, I see a deflating: "Warning: This file is not build for a subdomain. The plugin works, but the auto return after login and logout fails. I work on a modified version". I am not sure what this means, but it would have been nice to see it earlier.
I am a NOOB and wanted to post this before I forget... I will give more feedback after testing thoroughly.
Good work Mr. Dutchman... too bad we are not as smart as you.
