2016-07-27Enable Interwiki extensionarchwikiAlad Wenter
This extension allows to modify the interwiki table [1], and is shipped with MediaWiki since version 1.21. [2] It is enabled as a temporary measure until functionality is merged to the MediaWiki core. [3] [1] [2] [3]
2016-07-27Enable ParserFunctions extensionAlad Wenter
ParserFunctions allows for more versatile wiki templates, amongst other functionality, and is shipped with MediaWiki since version 1.18. [1] Included string functionality remains disabled, as is done on wikimedia projects. [2] [1] [2]

2016-07-23LocalSettings: Enable support for userscripts and user-stylesheetsJakub Klinkovský
Related bug report: FS#46699 [1] Enabling userscripts allows the users to use many existing scripts from Wikipedia [2], which can greatly improve the experience of reading, editing and maintaining the wiki. It will also allow us to make some ArchWiki-specific scripts like Wiki Monkey [3] more portable (currently it depends on browser extensions like Greasemonkey to work). Enabling user-stylesheets lets the users customize the default Arch skin on the wiki according to their preference, and more importantly, it makes it easier for users to test modifications and prepare patches for the main skin. This is probably the main blocker of FS#46697 [4]. [1] [2] [3] [4]
2016-07-23LocalSettings: Hide "minordefault" and "forceeditsummary" user optionsJakub Klinkovský
There is little wrong in letting the users configure these settings, but setting "Mark all edits as minor by default" to true or "Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary" to false has bad impact on the quality of the wiki edits, because such users tend to ignore the fundamental rules [1] and there is nothing to remind it to them. Disabling these user preferences and forcing the default values according to this patch will decrease the effort of the Maintenance Team spent on guiding the editors and also generally increase the quality of user contributions. This will solve FS#46190 [2]. [1] [2]
2016-07-23LocalSettings: Enable subpages in the main namespaceJakub Klinkovský
The default value for the main namespace is `false`, because Wikipedia does not use subpages for categorization anymore. That is not the case on ArchWiki, so there is no reason why the main namespace should behave differently. The most visible changes are relative links using the normal double square brackets notation and automatic breadcrumb links appearing at the top of the subpage, linking to each parent page that exists. See [1] for discussion and [2] for upstream documentation of this setting. Also see the related FS#39668 [3], which will be solved by this patch. [1] [2]$wgNamespacesWithSubpages [3]

2015-07-26Improve instructions for extensions/ArchInterWiki.sqlJakub Klinkovský
The instructions for interlanguage links were generalized to include all interwiki links as a preparation for merging the maintenance/arch-interwiki.sql script. The API queries were improved to use the limit=max shortcut, for continuation of queries it is better to just link to upstream because the previously described method is being deprecated.

2015-07-25Improve interwiki entries for Wikimedia Foundation projectsJakub Klinkovský
The entries have been separated into other block in the SQL script for readability, this does not matter with respect to the database. Old entries were removed or replaced with the new site's URL and more meaningful prefix. There are also couple of convenient aliases for the most frequently used entries.
2015-07-25Remove acronym interwiki entryJakub Klinkovský
The site is a search engine, exact search is unsupported due to many ambiguities, so it cannot be used as disambiguation of the acronym, which makes it useless for use in the interwiki map.

2015-07-25Remove interwiki entries with zero relevance to ArchJakub Klinkovský
The interwiki map is intended to simplify frequent linking to the same sites, but I doubt there will be need to link to these sites from ArchWiki.

2015-07-25Remove google search services from the interwiki mapJakub Klinkovský
These interwiki prefixes have never worked properly, because spaces are not supported in interwiki links -- they are always replaced with an underscore (same for `%20`) so anything longer than one word fails. I have no idea why they have been considered in the default interwiki map.
2015-07-25Initialize the maintenance/arch-interwiki.sql scriptJakub Klinkovský
The interwiki table is cleared first and then the entries are inserted. For now the entries duplicate the maintenance/interwiki.sql script, the map will be revised in the following commits.
