[MediaWiki-l] MediaWiki support/guidance

Bobby Shabangu
Hi all,

I've recently been appointed as a Wiki-in-residence at the United Nations
Development Program (UNDP) branch in South Africa. One of my tasks is
downloading and setting up a MediaWiki based website on the UNDP servers
and installing plugins so that it works kind of like Wikipedia. Although
I've read and watched some YouTube videos but I still feel I would need
need assistance,

So I'm writing to find out if there's someone I can speak to who can give
me technical guidance or a platform like social media ( Facebook, WhatsApp
or Telegram) where I can get quick response should I get stuck.

Kind regards,
Bobby Shabangu

Hi Bobby,

Here's a MediaWiki IRC Channel:
https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#mediawiki

Here's a Riot Channel:
<a href="https://riot.im/app/#/room/#mwstake-general:matrix.org">https://riot.im/app/#/room/#mwstake-general:matrix.org

The Riot Channel is run by the MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group.  They have
monthly live meetings, here's their website:
https://mwstake.org/mwstake/wiki/Main_Page

You may be interested in Meza, it's a MediaWiki deployment tool that comes
with a lot of extensions [0]:

Bryan
