CAPTCHAs that won't go away

Aseigo suggested that I ask you about this. Everytime I make an edit, it claims that I am adding a URL, and wants me to do some math. Is it even supposed to do this to registered users? In any case, most times I am not adding a url at all, and I tire of the systems inordinate appetite for elementary arithmetic. Can this be fixed? Thanks. --Axiom 20:27, 28 March 2007 (CEST)


As you asked me, I removed all the occurrences of {{file}} with {{path}}, and removed the obsolete template {{file}}. -- pino 02:16, 29 May 2007 (CEST)

There is also a template called {{module}} for KDE modules (kdelibs, kdebase), etc. I initially used path here, too, and thought that's enough. It's not widely used, only by 2 articles. Maybe we should replace it by path again? What do you think? --Dhaumann 09:14, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
I agree. --Danimo 09:28, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
Or maybe link it to the module page in the apidocs (e.g kdelibs)? --milliams 14:47, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
Good idea, {{kdelibs}}, {{kdebase}} etc... +1 from my side :) --Dhaumann 15:11, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
Sounds good. Or how about {{module|foo}} linking to I don't know how flexible this method is though? --milliams 19:41, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
+1 on milliams' idea --pino 21:35, 29 May 2007 (CEST)

Assistance needed for new contributor to Techbase

Hi. My name is Thor, I am a new contributor to KDE and I am looking to provide some help with regard to one of the KDE Games, KTuberling (The Potato dude). I am a Polyglot, and work in many different languages, and I have noticed on issues of KTuberling that even with correct software in place, certain speech selections do not function (Notably; Serbian and Danish). I have been working on these for a while and would like to obtain source code for the Tuberling to try and correct the error. Could you tell me please how I find out who is working on what, and what they are doing to it? Thanks and Regards. ThunderGod 15:40, 30 December 2007 (CET)

The best place to find assistance with this is by visiting the #kdegames or #kde-edu channels on or by sending an joining the KDE Games mailing list at I believe tsdgeos (Albert Astals Cid) is the best person to speak to. --milliams 17:13, 30 December 2007 (CET)

More readable URLs

At the moment all links on this site are in the form I think it would make the site much more readable to convert these links into something like Now, as you can see, if you click on that link it does indeed work and takes you to the same page (so you've obviously got mod_rewrite working correctly) so the problem is that mediawiki itself isn't formatting it's links to take advantage of this. I think you basically need to do step 2 from here. --milliams 14:53, 18 April 2008 (CEST)

It seems this is working now. Thanks a lot :) --milliams 14:34, 28 April 2008 (CEST)

Remove my account

Please remove my account; i'd like to choose another username. Thank you. KRF

Mediawiki has no concept of user account deletion, since that would mess up the history. Just create a new user and add redirects from your current user accounts user page. --Danimo 17:55, 20 April 2008 (CEST)

Okay, would be nice if you could make my username uppercase then... Some database tweaking maybe? ;). No need to answer this, you can remove my entry when you've read it. Thank you anyway. KRF

Hidden search button text in french localized ktechbase

When switching ktechbase language to french the button search text is really too small. I have read somewhere that the css file will use fixed width for a while so changing the search button width from 4em to 6em will fix that small issue.

The problem with images in article

When adding the existing image file i can't save the whole article.


Adding image (ex. kickoff.png), typing the code, saving and got "" and  a blank page. When i reload a page, i've got old text back, without any changes. Using Firefox 3.0. Can save only the text. What can we do about it? Thanks.

Where can I post a patch?

My article on building the dependencies for KDE-4.x:

requires a patch for a file that will not build. Is there somewhere on the TechBase site where I can post this? Currently it is linked to my private web site and I would rather not have that.

Wiki software revealed

Powered by please

It would be nice to reveal the software used in the page footer. (with this image)

Database configuration bug

See e.g. <URL:>:

Database error

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "Article::pageData". MySQL returned error "1267: Illegal mix of collations (latin1_bin,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_unicode_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '=' (localhost)".

This should never happen, compare <URL:>. This problem will prevents Wiki for having non-Western-European page names in translations. The most probable cause is a misconfiguration of the database engine; however, it is also worth noting that the current MediaWiki software is 1.16 whereas you are using 1.14 (from HTML metadata, otherwise unmentioned), so maybe it would be time to upgrade?
