Suggestions for MediaWiki and other Wikis

Improvements to MediaWiki:

  • what the hell no paste buttons (text, word, html formatting, etc)

  • no html import

  • no html to markup and markup to html converter

  • text imported from word with a list or bullets or linebreaks is not converted to same in wiki (line breaks are all ignored)

  • what the hell no formatting buttons on top (bullet, list, etc)

  • Stupidity: search results do not show at the bottom how many pages of results there are. There's the idiotic (next 20) link. But how many times would I need to click that???
  • doc need absolutely full path for importimages.php

  • mediawiki stupidity: if there is no line break, there will be runon sentences. Two lines is actually a new line

  • does not exist: mediawiki single link nofollow or do not index within wiki (is that meta page the solution?)

  • FR: mediawiki required tool - find pages noone links to, or never did
