A TOC in Wikipedia is only generated if the article has more than three sections. The one you linked to only has three, and so it is not generated. If you were to add __TOC__ or __FORCETOC__ to the document a TOC would be generated. __FORCETOC__ causes the TOC to be placed before the first section heading, which would be before "Publications", while __TOC__ ...

I think a better method is to use the 'nowiki' tag. This is generic and does not rely on knowing character codes, plus your text is more readable. <nowiki>*</nowiki> will display as an asterisk at the start of the sentence. http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Formatting Now you can display any special characters you like!

I don't think this can be done, and that is by design. A section is intended to end with the heading of a new section. The described situation would create some ambiguity, because there are no visual cues on the page to define where a section ends except for the header of a new section. It may also be unnecessary, because a default install of MediaWiki ...

For one page use <div style="float:right;">__TOC__</div> This is what I usually do. Being that I do a lot with styling and so forth, I hate using my user css to modify anything since then I don't see what everyone else sees and therefore don't know what a visitor will see.

If you are using the GeShi syntax highlighting extension to MediaWiki, then you can just insert your C♯ code as-is, enclosed within a <syntaxhighlight/> element.

There is a tool called WikiBlame that lets you do exactly that: you enter a page name and a phrase to search for and will point you to the edit that added it. It's also linked from the History page of every page on the English Wikipedia (as “Revision history search”).

You can change the contents of "MediaWiki:Mainpage" to contain the text "Special:AllPages". Whenever users click on the "Main page" link on the sidebar, the logo or accessing your wiki's domain name, you will be immediately directed to the special page. The advantage of this is that they see "All pages" as the page title and not "Main Page".

OK, I figured it out. I have done this and it works the way I want: [[File:StackOverflowProvilePic.jpeg‎|left|frame|Yes, this is me]] Apparently you can add many options between the image filename and the caption text. Why leaving that frame or thumb option off would cause the caption text to not appear is a mystery. To me, anyway.

WikiMiniAtlas developer here. Replace the | between 2000 and region with a _ {{coord|35|37|N|139|50|E|display=title|dim:2000_region:JP_type:city_source:GNS-enwiki}} That should work.

You can use the {{#tag}} magic word to do this. So, your template would look something like this: {{#tag:ref|Sometext {{createdate|{{{1}}}}}.|name={{{1}}}}} Although exactly this code wouldn't work correctly, because name cannot be an integer.

On Wikipedia: Use the {{Reference necessary}} template. It adds a dotted gray underline beneath the text selection of your choice. Plus it adds a "[citation needed]" inline template at the end. On other MediaWiki websites, you may have do do it yourself using CSS or something. Let us know how it works out.

As far as I know, there is no simple way to do this. But I can see some possibilities (starting with those that practically won't work): Use the API.

Because of the limitations of the API when working with ...
