#8195 How to update toolbar Wiki link to point to migrated MediaWiki

Dave Heller

I just migrated my mediawiki to a new mediawiki on Project web. Can you tell me how to to edit the Wiki link on my project toolbar so that it points to that? It currently points to the Allura wiki which I am not using at the moment. I can put a link (or a redirect?) on that page but I would prefer not to do that. I really want the link to go directly to my new mediawiki.

I didn't see anything on the page, or under Admin, that lets you edit the toolbar widgets. Thx.

    Ok, I think I found the answer. From Admin -> Tools, on the Wiki widget, click on "Set Home". Enter the full URL to the new mediawiki site. The toolbar link now redirects to that URL.

    One caveat: The redirector has the undesirable habit of appending '/' to the URL, and Mediawiki apparently doesn't like URLs with a trailing slash (i.e. it won't just remove the slash). So you can't use this to point to a specific page on your mediawiki. But you can use it to point your wiki's main page, as long as it's a URL with a trailing slash. For example, I set mine to http://sblim.sourceforge.net/wiki/, which my mediawiki redirects to http://sblim.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page, which is the redirection I was looking for.
