I took this:
and modified it to handle tables, bold/italic, lists, our local kwiki
hacks, etc. It's pretty straightforward.

  Convert KWiki to MediaWiki

Unfortunately I'd like to convert a KWiki to a MediaWiki and searched
for utilities, but unfortunately I didn't find any. I don't want to
copy-and-paste every single site. Do you know any tools, which provide
this possibility?

Or is there any script available?

  Authenticating attachments to Kwiki         

Author: Keith Lofstrom
Date: Sep 30, 2007 08:58

I'm using Kwiki on a few sites. For a while, I had Typekey set
up, but the folks at Typekey will let anybody sign up, and don't
monitor for bot usage, so that just acted as an "attractive
nuisance" - worse than useless.

I now have scode captcha set up, and I get very little vandalism on
the sites by editing. Instead, the vandal-bots make html attachments;
AFAIKS there is no way to authenticate attachments or notify me when
attachments are made. The damage rate is low - a few a week - but
still annoying.

I have a cron script that informs me of new attachments every week,
and I use those to hunt down garbage, but I would prefer to apply
captcha and email notification to new attachments just like it is
applied to text edits. Is there any way to set that up?

  Unsubscription successful; thanks         

Author: Dave Baker

The information is in the message headers, I have learned:

List-Id: <>

Perhaps this information should be at the bottom of each email. I don't
routinely view detailed header information in email on Thunderbird; I
wonder how many people do? Not many, I bet.

Thanks very much for the assist and again please pardon this email,

  Unsubscription information

I apologize; I know this is irritating.

Can someone please tell me how to unsubscribe from the kwiki mailing
list. I have forgotten how I subscribed. I can find no listing for the
list on or I had no luck on Google.

Thank you very much,

Dave Baker
