Magic quotes and MediaWiki

I went to upgrade the wiki so that I could play with some of the newer extensions. Problem was, the old trick of adding "set_magic_quotes_runtime(0);" to the index file wasn't working.

However, thanks to this page (sorry, I don't read Russian), I have the new work-around.For those interested, add the following as the second line in index.php: "ini_set('magic_quotes_runtime',0);". You may need to add it to the index.php in the config directory too.

If this helps, please pass it on.
