WikiPedia printing is also OK but I noticed that both MediaWiki and WikiPedia are both running 1.39.0-wmf.17 (27d58b4).

There must be more guidance than what is on the Extension pages. The NumberedHeadings page has the 1.38 incompatibility notice, but the MagicNumberedHeadings page does not. Moving the task to Short Term sounds like expediting it. Thanks. I'll follow it, but right now I don't see it there.

MikeV added a comment to T7825: TitleKey extension enabled..

When you start typing a search term, if the letters match the first letters of a page title, you should get a drop-down list of suggested pages. Normally, you have to type characters in the matching case. This extension is supposed to provide case-insensitivity. So you don't have to type the exact characters to see the drop-down suggestions.

I will install the extension this weekend, and also I don't want to keep both extensions for the reason that the original one is fairly obsolete with this one, but we will see how everything goes probably first.

I don't know what "spambot registration" is. Are these only Miraheze users? Do they satisfy the email verification process? Why would anyone want to automatically join sites? Is this a characteristic of shared wiki farms? Is there really no way to block spambots? Would a dedicated mediawiki server eliminate them?

We have hundreds of users. Please explain your part of the email solution. Without any import mechanism, the only way I imagined we could add them is to send our users an email with the link to the create account page where they would have to register. Then, an administrator would have to manually add them to the NDGUsers group after manually verifying that they are really members. That seems like a lot of unnecessary work.
