Messed up when archiving[edit]

I have disabled this redirect so that you get my message correctly. I have requested for an administrator to complete the move you requested. It appears you are having difficulty in setting up a talk page archive; is there anything I can do to help? -RunningOnBrains 11:59, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

true, I messed up when moving archive to clean up page. --Roberth Edberg (talk) 12:01, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

A Way to Auto Link Words[edit]

I was thinking. I run a website where I am Constantly using certain words that I would like linked to Wikipedia.org. Could the next version you launch have a feature like this. I use words like Multiple Sclerosis or myelin, Plus MANY MANY other words Joseph from MSlaura.net —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.244.227.194 (talk) 17:26, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Do I understand you correectly if you're looking for a feature of my Wikibot, were you could list certains words that would would be linked to wikipedia? Like a banned word filter, but instead link them to wikipedia? That does not seem hard to create. Is it what you want? --Roberth Edberg (talk) 20:15, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Correct, it would would automagically just link those certain words -- Joseph(Mslauranet (talk) 14:37, 14 May 2009 (UTC))
I'll have a look at it, when I have time. I can also see the need. I also see problems if it's logic collide with other bot's.. Hmm.. Well, I'll have a look. --Roberth Edberg (talk) 10:42, 15 May 2009 (UTC)
Where should I keep a eye out for the updated version? Joseph of MSlaura.net (talk) 17:51, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
The wikibot homepage. But I haven't had the time and I won't before summer. --Roberth Edberg (talk) 19:56, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

Wikibot not working properly[edit]

I've been using your Wikibot successfully - but the "inc:" function has suddenly stopped working. Why might that be?

Nothing has changed on my site. All that has happened is that the article that was always embedded into my Joomla content has now been replaced with a link to the Wikipedia article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.32.224.193 (talk) 09:56, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Strange, I know it still works (reference) - must be something local, check again --Roberth Edberg (talk) 08:32, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
I've checked and double checked everything and it doesn't work. I use inc:wikipediareference in the body of the article and all it publishes is the link, instead of bringing in the article. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. The file permissions on wikibot.php are set to 755. What else might be wrong? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.69.50.34 (talk) 06:50, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

I have found the problem. The Wikibot works OK - UNLESS the article is "semi-protected". For instance, inc:Google produces a blank page. How can the Wikibot be made to work with all Wikipedia pages? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.69.50.34 (talk) 19:40, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Chrome OS[edit]

I've reverted your link to the "Official" site as it isn't an official "Chrome OS", it's simply a fan created version based on SuSE Linux. If you note on the Download Page it states "Chrome OS is not related to Google". See here for further details. 93.97.150.79 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 17:43, 29 September 2009 (UTC).


Linking to on-site mediawiki rather that Wikipedia?[edit]

Is it possible for the extension to link to content on a mediawiki installation that is in a sibdirectory of the joomla site and not wikipedia? - I agree strongly with one of the questions asked above about certain words automagically linking to wiki pages. As a Joomla plugin, this would be amazingly useful in forums and community based sites where ysers will never use the [[link word]] syntax. BTW I visited the extension page linked from the JED but there were no contact details there hence my question here - sorry if it's an inappropriate place to ask - thanks. Paul. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.145.82.179 (talk) 12:41, 29 December 2009 (UTC)


Setup Question (?)[edit]

—Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.87.123.209 (talk) 17:57, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

I must be missing something simple but I can not get the [[link]] on my joomla page to link to my own Wiki site. Whenever I add the /url to find the Wiki .php page, it adds the word '/wiki' in back of it. Any ideas on how to proceed? Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by 63.87.123.209 (talk) 17:54, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Have you tried adding the full url incl http:// ? --Roberth Edberg (talk) 13:33, 24 February 2010 (UTC)


This is actually due to a bug in the code. Here's a quick fix for it:

In the file /plugins/content/wikibot.php, change the third line in the following block of code:

    // Own wiki site?
    if (empty($ownsite)) {
        $returnsite = 'http://'.$lang.'.'.$wikisite.'.org/';
    } else {
        $returnsite = $ownsite;
        $wikisite= $ownsitename;
    }

to:

        $returnsite = 'http://'.$lang.'.'.$wikisite.'.org/wiki/';

Then, a few lines below, change six lines like these

 $link='<a href="'.$returnsite.'wiki/'.$rwikipath.$first [etc...]

to

 $link='<a href="'.$returnsite.$rwikipath.$first [etc...]

This should fix the bug...

Added this into version 2.3a --Roberth Edberg (talk) 22:31, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

Wikibot doesnt work with the new version of mediawiki[edit]

I installed the wikibot 2 in my web and since wikipedia update to his new version of mediawiki, the bot is working but apparently something changed in this new version of mediawiki and i can get run the inc:article function in my website it show me a blank page.

Hey, yea, I'd love this to be working too ... It's the only thing of it's kind. I referenced the Onion page and it seems to work. What could I be doing wrong? Paravis (talk) 00:29, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Novice wondering if wikibot can open in a popup or in a module so as not to leave site?[edit]

Using joomla 1.5, and am pretty unskilled. Love the plugin, but would rather not have to go to new window, etc...

Also, I noticed when I installed the plugin that the directions appear as html when I look at the plugin manager. When "install sucess" in installer, however, the directions are clear.

Thanks, 72.93.2.233 (talk) 17:39, 13 October 2010 (UTC)PS

WikiBot is dead ?[edit]

WikiBot is dead or alive?

Last 3.1 Version is dated 26 January 2011.

Does it work on last joomla 3.0.x?

Many Thanks, joomleb

In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.
