MediaWiki is a free software open source wiki package written in PHP, originally for use on Wikipedia. It is now also used by several other projects of the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation and by many other wikis, including, the home of MediaWiki.

You can use this moodle repository to allow searching, linking and importing media from these wikis. 

note: keep the 'commons url' setting blank if you don't know or are not sure. This is a workaround for sites like wikipedia which have another (shared) url to access resources.

    Many thanks for sharing this plugin with the Moodle community. As I was installing the plugin, I received the following errors:

    Notice: Constant WIKIMEDIA_THUMBS_PER_PAGE already defined in /var/www/m25/repository/mediawiki/mediawiki.php on line 25

    Notice: Constant WIKIMEDIA_FILE_NS already defined in /var/www/m25/repository/mediawiki/mediawiki.php on line 26

    Notice: Constant WIKIMEDIA_IMAGE_SIDE_LENGTH already defined in /var/www/m25/repository/mediawiki/mediawiki.php on line 27

    Notice: Constant WIKIMEDIA_THUMB_SIZE already defined in /var/www/m25/repository/mediawiki/mediawiki.php on line 28

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class wikimedia in /var/www/m25/repository/mediawiki/mediawiki.php on line 30

    Might we get those fixed up before approving.

    Also, I like to encourage folks to provide the source, documentation, and issues URLs to help folks collaborate with you in maintaining the plugin. For now, I am going to mark this as needing more work. Please do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to be supportive of your efforts. Peace - Anthony

    Aparup - Thanks for fixing things up. The repository installs fine and works well. If you get a chance it would be good to provide some documentation. I'm going to go ahead and approve this. Peace - Anthony
