When getting free content from Wikipedia and other GFDL licensed sources, it is important to comply with the requirements of the GNU Free Document License.

These articles CAN NOT be legally placed in Lunarpedia's main namespace as it is reserved for public domain content. This content is not ours to release in such a capacity.

It is also critical to continue credit for the multiple contributors whose iterative efforts built up the article. The most feasible method of doing this from a MediaWiki source is to export and then import the article. Note that only sysops have the power to import articles to Lunarpedia.

If you are not a sysop, please send a message to a recently active sysop requesting that they import the article for you. As of this writing, most registered users of Lunarpedia have sysop capabilities.

Exporting the article[edit]

Select the Wikipedia article. For example:

The name of the article in this case is Apollo 11

On the left side below the search box where it says 'toolbox' look for 'Special pages.' Click on that, then click on the link where it says 'export pages.'

...or go to this link:

Type in the name of the article, in this case, Apollo 11

IMPORTANT: UNCHECK the box that reads 'Include only the current revision, not the full history' -- leaving this checked defeats the entire purpose of exporting it and hacking on the xml file.

Click on the Export button.

In your web browser, select 'save page as.' and save the file to disk with an appropriate filename (such as WikipediaApollo11.xml).

Editing the file[edit]

Open the file in your preferred text editor. Search for the first instance of <title>. You should see:

<title>Apollo 11</title>

Change that to

<title>GFDL:Apollo 11</title>

Save (as text file with extention .xml, probably the same filename).

Now you're ready to import. viagra generico viagra sin receta viagra sans ordonnance viagra bestellen
