Description Dori 2005-07-22 23:31:26 UTC
MediaWiki:Exporttext displays "In the latter case you can also use a link, e.g.
Special:Export/Train for the article Train." For a general MediaWiki install it
should probably point to the [Main Page]]. I originally put in that example in

You can export the text and editing history of a particular page or set of pages
wrapped in some XML. In the future, this may then be imported into another wiki
