New and updates pages of a category

Fernando Correia
Is there a way to show a list of new and updates pages that belong to
a category (and its subcategories)?

If not, could anyone suggest a starting point to build this? Maybe the
recent changes special page?

DynamicPageList or DynamicPageList2 extensions?

Thanks for the hint. I had forgotten about this extension. It seems it
can be very helpful.

Moderation ?

Richard Hordern
Hello,
Is it possible to moderate everything that is posted or added to
mediawiki? So that nothing shows up and no changes are applied unless a
moderator has given his go ahead?

I'm quite new to the wiki world and I'm rather worried about spam as it
seems that anyone can change anything ! I could write a long
presentation page and then someone who doesn't like me could comme along
and delete everything ! But I would also like to allow people to add
this so long as I have read them first... I guess this is how wikipedia
works isn't it?

The functionality you want is common of a Content Management System, which
MediaWiki is not.

There _may be_ an extension to do this - I'm not sure.

That is exactly the wiki principle.

Maybe, but since each modification of a page (or article) is stored in
that page's version history, you can always go back and restore a
version that has been vandalized.

Nope; Wikipedia (or wikis in general) sets the moderation AFTER the
publishing, unlike the traditional mode of editorial control BEFORE
publishing something.

Try searching MediaWiki.org for an extension like this; it might or
might not exist.

HTH.

Look directly towards anti-spam measures.  See

No, nobody can permanently delete anything, including the
administrator, without trying hard.

No, there is no moderation feature.  It's "edit first, moderate
later".  This makes it very important to have anti-spam measures in
place.

Thankyou for this info, I like the principle and I will read through all
the spam measures and give the wiki system a go !
