Kubuntuguide XML exports
Kubuntuguide XML exports
Kubuntuguide, like Wikipedia and many other websites, uses MediaWiki. It is easy to export pages in XML format and then import them into another wiki.
While the XML files may also be able to be imported to other wikis such as Moin Moin and Twiki, I have not tried it. (I have edited recent versions of Kubuntuguide to be as consistent as possible with both MediaWiki and Moin Moin formatting, but there are subtle differences between the two so that I cannot guarantee compatibility with Moin Moin).
Export Kubuntuguide wiki pages into an XML file
- Examine the list of wiki pages available at Kubuntuguide:
- Kubuntuguide -> Toolbox: Special Pages -> All pages
Many of these pages will not be necessary for your private copy. Copy only the names of the wiki pages files you wish to export. The recommended list is below.
- Export the desired pages from Kubuntuguide as an XML export:
- Kubuntuguide wiki -> Toolbox: Special Pages -> Export pages
(Note: This list of (English-language) wiki pages was accurate for the recent Precise version. You may want to check all pages to see if something you want is missing from this list.)

- Here is a list of the primary wiki pages for several different editions of Kubuntuguide.
Import the Kubuntuguide XML into a local wiki
- Import the Kubuntuguide XML export file into the local wiki:
- Local wiki -> log in -> Username: wikiadmin -> Password: wikiadminpassword -> Log in
- -> Special Pages -> Page Tools -> Import pages -> Browse -> Kubuntuguide-xxxxx.xml -> Open -> Upload file
- Edit the Main Page of the wiki and add a link to the online Kubuntuguide as well as the imported copy:
*[[Kubuntu_Precise|Kubuntuguide Precise (local copy for editing)]] *[http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Kubuntuguide Kubuntuguide (online)]
The idea is to edit the locally stored Kubuntuguide as you customize your system. It can also serve as a template and an example of how to use the MediaWiki wiki.
- Edit the local copy of Kubuntuguide to hide irrelevant links. In MediaWiki, use the <!---> and <---> tags to comment out instructions or text that should not be displayed. Example:
- Kubuntuguide Precise (local copy for editing) -> edit ->
