I-name interwiki links

FYI, if you'd like to interwiki links like the following: [[i-name:Bill.Barnhill]] that take the user to Bill Barnhill's contact page, then follow the steps below.

  • . Log onto Mysql and connect to the wiki database with:
    1. . mysql -u {wikiuser} -p
    2. . {Enter wiki passwd when prompted}
    3. . use {wiki database name, use show databases if you dont know}
  • . Here you'll have a variation. If you are only running one wiki, then you probably don't have a wiki table prefix, so you'll have a interwiki table named appropriately enough interwiki. If you do have a wiki table prefix then it will be {prefix}_interwiki. Make a note of what it is.
  • . Do the actual replace
    1. . REPLACE INTO interwiki (iw_prefix,iw_url,iw_local) VALUES ('i-name', '$1',1);
  • . Exit MySql client with
    1. . quit

The change should be effective can see if it's enabled by clicking on i-name:=Bill.Barnhill. I also have some pointer to i-name info on my contact page.

I've added this her as if people have i-names and this is enabled then this can be used on the people page.

XRI identifier support

What I'd really like to see is this site enabling SSO for XRI/i-names. Right now, it supports LID, OpenID and Yadis... See also
