So much stuff isn't working here yet

I'm starting to think that much of the normal stuff I regularly do in other wikis is reliant on installed extensions. So much of what I've been trying here already, such as adding my box template, or altering the {{DISPLAYTITLE}} for my home page, doesn't seem to be working. I've already put in a request (via Lin Nah) for a list of common MediaWiki extensions to be installed here, to support some of the features I use regularly. Will have to wait and see if/when some of them get installed, whether the tricks I've been trying to use will suddenly start working. ᏜᏠᎶᏠᏑ 18:06, 8 December 2014 (AEDT)

It is not just the extensions, but some of the back-end configuration is also not set up the way I'd normally expect a wiki to be set up. For instance, the $wgNamespacesWithSubpages option has not been enabled for the Template: namespace, meaning that the normal way of documenting templates using the {{/doc}} command is unavailable. InterWiki doesn't seem to have been enabled either. Also, my Preferences don't seem to have saved between sessions, so I've lost my custom signature between logins, along with my regional settings, etc. I'd really appreciate having access to the back-end of the wiki, to set some of this stuff up properly, if that's okay?
