Images disappear

Hi All


I'm new to mediawiki.

 I recently got my turnkey mediawiki site up and running and have been busy adding pages. I have no problems adding pictures to a new page however, if i go back and edit the same page later the picture mysteriously disappears and all I am left with is [[image:]] I then have to put the image path back in.

 Is this normal behavior or is my site just doing odd things...?

If this is a bug, my guess is it has something to do with FCKeditor (there have been similar issues in the past). Are you using FCKeditor? If you disable it, does the issue go away?

Images disappear

Thanks for the reply.


I disable the editor by clicking "Disable rich editor"

Now the image remains just fine when I do an edit.

So I guess this is a problem with FCKeditor.

Reporting the bug upstream

If you're up to it, could you report this as bug. If not, when I get some free time I'll do it.

I have the problem

Hi all! 

I have the problem with the MediaWiki...

Please resolve the problem.

I have read this: http://dev.ckeditor.com/ticket/3482 and this: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual_talk:$wgUseTidy http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-195636.html

I have installed php5-tidy after that I configure: echo "extension=tidy.so" >> /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini;  

I have add the line into my LocalSettings.php

$wgUseTidy = true;

$wgTidyInternal = true;

After that:

Restart apache.

The problem is not resolved after that.

I hope you'll help me!
