Editing the UI

Edit the sidebar
Edit the site notice (the text displayed above the content of every page)
The above pages, and more, for modifying the layout and UI content
iw_local, iw_trans) VALUES ("x2", "http://www.x2engine.com/$1", 1, 0);</syntaxhighlight> Then, a link to the "about" page:
For more information, see mw:Help:Interwiki
Add custom HTML to the template
Edit VectorTemplate::execute() in public_html/skins/Vector.php (a backup of this skin has been made in Backup/Vector, in case anything should go wrong). The body begins after these lines:
                // Output HTML Page
                $this->html( 'headelement' );

User Management

The following two plugins are enabled for user management:

These special pages are of use:


Edit global CSS for all pages
Change the syntax highlighting CSS
Purging a cached page (i.e. if the sidebar or site notice is out of date)
Add "&action=purge" to the end of the page's url and re-request the page.
Globally purging all cached pages and objects (more useful but more involved)
Log into the server via SSH and run clearCache.sh; that should change the modification time on LocalSettings.php, which will, due how the dynamic $wgCacheEpoch variable is set, invalidate all cached pages and thus regenerate them. Said variable's declaration is at the end of the file:
$wgCacheEpoch = gmdate( 'YmdHis', @filemtime( __FILE__ ) );
Create a URL shorthand for linking to another site
For example, one has been made for www.x2engine.com so that the "About X2Engine" in the footer could be made a link to the main X2Engine site:
INSERT INTO interwiki (iw_prefix, iw_url, iw_local, iw_trans) VALUES ("x2", "http://www.x2engine.com/$1", 1, 0);
That interwiki entry transforms (for example) the code
[[x2:partners/|About X2Engine]]
<a href="http://www.x2engine.com/partners/">About X2Engine</a>
