Dear Elvey, Welcome to MediaWiki.org!
Yes, welcome! This site is dedicated to documenting the MediaWiki software, the software behind many wikis, including that of Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation projects.
Please, take a look at the following pages. They might prove useful to you as a newcomer here:
- Landing instructions
- How does MediaWiki work?
- Help:Editing pages
- Frequently asked questions
- How to contribute
If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and find this site useful documentation of the MediaWiki software.
Thanks, and regards, GeorgeBarnick (talk) 21:33, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
I've just posted a request at Help talk:CirrusSearch asking that the help link on this wiki's search results page point to Help:CirrusSearch, instead of the default Help:searching. I interpret help talk:searching discussions as saying that Help:Searching describes MWSearch, which is Search for installations whose Special:versions don't include any search extensions.
Although I think recent edits at help:searching should be reverted, Elvey, Searching, help, pages (on WP, MW, Wikidata) are in great need. They're like a ghost town, so I'm glad to see your efforts. Cpiral (talk) 02:42, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
