From Wikiversity
This page is a translated version of the page Help:Importing from betawikiversity and the translation is 20% complete.

What to do when a subdomain was created:

  • Do not copy pages from the test in BetaWikiversity to the new site.

This is illegal : Violation of GFDL licence and CC-by-* licence

These pages must be imported from BetaWikiversity. Ask a steward to do this or do it yourself or ask someone else who knows how to do it.

For doing this, you need to be member of the "import" group (on the new site) which members are able to import pages from XML files using Special:Import. See below how to do this.


  1. Get your data (note: it is not needed to register)
    • The normal MediaWiki way
      1. Go on BetaWikiversity (this wiki) to Special:Export
      2. Put the ISO 639-1 code language in Add pages from category: and click on Add' (FR for french, EN for english...)
      3. All page, which in category and sub-category, should be listed in the frame just below
    • The API way
      1. Go to http://beta.wikiversity.org/w/api.php and get the appropriate parameters
      2. Copy the lists to a text program which supports utf-8 and regular expressions, then remove the unneeded parts.
      3. Copy the lists (namespaces Main, Talk, Template, Template talk, Category, Category talk) into the field at Special:Export.
  2. Uncheck "Include only the current revision, not the full history".
  3. Click on "export".
  4. Save that file on your computer. (be sure that it supports utf-8)
  5. Register on the destination wiki.
  6. Request on Steward requests/Permissions for temporary import and sysop access (sysop access is not needed, but is useful). It is a good idea to join the #wikimedia-stewards IRC channel in the Libera.Chat network (connect via webchat).
  7. Go on the new wiki to Special:Import. Search your computer for the XML file, then upload it.
  8. Add a notice on BetaWikiversity that the test can be deleted.
  9. Don't forget to ask on m:RFP for removing your access.
  10. You have finished!
