Description Mark Wiltshire 2007-02-19 13:52:37 UTC
When I move a page from 'Content Management:My Overview' to 'User Guides:My
the new page appears under the 'Content Management' namespace, under the
discussion tab.

I created an initial wiki and move the namespace settings in the LocalSettings.php.
I realise this was an error on my part.

Now If I create new DB
create namespaces Content_Management and Guides in localSettings.php

Create new page Content Management:My Overview and save
Then move page to Guides:My Overview.

I still get the same issue.

i.e. Page displays in 2nd discussion tab with first tab displaying 'Content

?? I have tried, with fresh DB's moving the page to both 'User Guides:My
Overview' and 'Guides:My Overview' just incase it was getting confused with the
User namespace, but no !! Same error still occurs.

- Windows XP
- Apache 2.2.3
- php 5.2.0
- Mediawiki 1.9.2
- MySQL 5.0.24a

What are the custom namespace configuration settings? It sounds like the second
namespace has been accidentally misconfigured as a discussion namespace of the
first, e.g.

$wgExtraNamespaces[100] = 'Content_Management';
$wgExtraNamespaces[101] = 'Guides';

You want to break these out into distinct namespaces; subject (i.e. not
discussion) namespaces always occupy an even-numbered slot, and the odd-numbered
slot is reserved for their discussion namespace.

Many thanks Rob,

That has fixed it.
I knew I had done something wrong :-)
