Dear Kent,

may thanks for the orientation

Re 1) Search

I verified that the record for 'Violin' shows up in the
simplewiktionary database using your query - I got the same record.

I rebuilt the indexes of the page, revision, and text tables,
respectively, with an "ALTER TABLE x ENGINE=INNODB" statement but it
didn't make a difference.

Re 2) Infobox and 3) Templates and references

Looked into installing the current MediaWiki directly, and the
respective web-page is actually encouraging:

Am tempted to give it a try, but I think, I'll first study the
wp-mirror manual and get to know the components of "my" local
wiki-instance before, and hopefully Debian will update their
mediawiki-packages soon. Also, I'll try to get a better picture of
what's going on with searching in simplewiktionary..

Dear Guy,

Thank you for letting me know about the issues with search and display.

1) Search

Regarding the `Violin' example, I am not sure why mediawiki fails to
find and display the definition. The records for `Violin' are indeed
there in simplewiktionary, as you may  confirm with the following SQL

(shell)$ mysql --host=localhost --user=root --password
Enter password:
mysql> select * from
where old_id=rev_id and rev_page=page_id and page_title like

2) Infobox

Debian packages mediawiki 1.19.  However, to display an infobox, we
would need the mediawiki extention `scribunto' which requires
mediawiki 1.20+.  This is mentioned at the bottom of
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Infobox>.  So we are waiting
for debian to catch up.

But rest assured that the template for the infobox is indeed in the
simplewiki database.  You can see this with the following command

mysql> select * from
simplewiki.page,simplewiki.revision,simplewiki.text where
old_id=rev_id and rev_page=page_id and page_title like

3) Templates and references

Currently many templates and references do not display.  I am not in
every case sure why.  Again I think we are waiting for debian to catch
up with mediawiki.

Sincerely Yours,
