This page contains a list of changes we have implemented to the default MediaWiki installation to arrive at our current configuration.


LocalSettings.php

Use Pear libraries for email functionality:

$path = array( $IP, "$IP/includes", "$IP/languages", "$IP/extensions", "C:/PHP/PEAR" );

Use expanded category browsing

/**
* disable experimental dmoz-like category browsing. Output things like:
* Encyclopedia > Music > Style of Music > Jazz
*/
$wgUseCategoryBrowser   = true;

Disable editing for not logged in users

$wgGroupPermissions = array();
// Implicit group for all visitors
$wgGroupPermissions['*'    ]['createaccount']   = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['*'    ]['read']            = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['*'    ]['edit']            = false; 
$wgGroupPermissions['*'    ]['createpage']      = false; 
$wgGroupPermissions['*'    ]['createtalk']      = false;

This should be set on all Wikia wikis, but I am not sure if it is

/**
* If true, external URL links in wiki text will be given the
* rel="nofollow" attribute as a hint to search engines that
* they should not be followed for ranking purposes as they
* are user-supplied and thus subject to spamming.
*/
$wgNoFollowLinks = true;
