Hi I'm thinking about setting up a site powered by mediawiki. Can you run advertising such as adsense with mediawiki or is it only for non-profit websites?
The GPL does not prohibit you from using the software for commercial purposes or even outright selling it.
There is no structure to a wiki until you start making one. You just go to a URL that doesn't exist yet, and you can create a page there. You can create category pages by marking them as such, and you can add links to the site's sidebar by editing yet another wiki page. There's no pre-defined organization.
Is there a better way to do this, or is there a way I can import the wiki article templates from wikipedia? I tried doing it one by one, but there's just too many.
Thank you in advance for your replies.
