Description Minh Truong 2008-03-06 05:08:01 UTC
so I recently discovered the API and it does exactly what I'm looking for but it doesn't work.

I keep getting this error in the xml format
<error code="unknown_action" info="Unrecognised value for parameter 'action'">

it doesn't understand any of the recognized action parameters.. 
Is this fixed with 1.11.2?
If you have any knowledge on this, please share.

Oh, I just looked closer at my API.php page. It allows me to just use action=help....
Where are my other options?

Your wiki doesn't allow anonymous users to read pages, so you have to log in first (through action=login or through the user interface).
