I run a private mediawiki site for research and study, but its a catch 22 situation of I have the most time to organise it when I'm on the road and not online!

Aside from getting a 3G dongle (although I'd then waste the time on SU, or FB!) is there any way to offline-edit and then sync my mediawiki?

Use Special:Export to 'check out' the pages you need, and use Special:Import to 'check in' the pages. Note that Special:Import requires sysop or bureaucrat (forget which) rights. You should have sysop (admin) rights considering you run it yourself.

I take it the only way to edit them then is to set up a laptop-local mediawiki instance and import on the fly so to speak? – Andrew Bolster Jul 21 '10 at 19:38

Well, you could theoretically edit the XML file itself... Highly inefficient though. – Hello71 Jul 22 '10 at 15:08
