Guys, you are giving me a really hard time! :D _right_ at the moment
we are working on the new mediawiki theme for the kde wikis...
This involves maany changes, basically looking like the kde main site,
but with fluid layout and some adjustments to better fit the wiki
As for the namespaces, didn't check that yet, not sure why they were
disabled in first place. Will do.
Then, techbase and community are soon to be updated, the whole
codebase is very well outdated... Luckily userbase already is updated,
now the 3 wikis (and one more) need to be glued together again. Only
limitation: the manpower...
But like always, you can't be fast enough, someone is always faster to
request it :P
Anyway, thanks for the hints, will be considered.
