One can specify an interface language. If that is different from the default language of the wiki, it causes the default messages of the specified other language to appear, not those in the MediaWiki namespace. If [[
Note that some contain internal links, with the name of a page in the interface language project but without the corresponding prefix; therefore these links in general do not work, unless redirects are made.

This selection only works in the Classic and Cologne Blue skins (see below). In Monobook there is a left panel anyway; in Nostalgia there is none.

MediaWiki allows you to enter mathematical equations as [[
* '''Always render PNG''': Always make a PNG image from the TeX code.
* '''HTML if very simple or else PNG''': If the TeX code is very simple, like "x = 3", render it as [[w:HTML|HTML]]. For more complex code, render as PNG.
The setting also affects what wikitext the signature of the user produces. Since dates in signatures are not linked, this determines how the date is rendered for everybody, and this can not be changed retroactively, except by editing the pages with the signature.
Note that using this date formatting feature in section headers complicates [[

The time is displayed in local time, according to the set preferences, in:
*"This page was last modified" at the bottom of pages
* '''Edit box has full width'''. If this box is checked, the edit box (when you click "Edit this page") will be the width of the browser window, minus the quickbar width.
* '''Show [[
* '''Show preview on first edit''' - when pressing the edit button or otherwise following a link to an edit page, show not only the edit box but also the rendered page, just like after pressing "Show preview". This is especially useful when ''viewing'' a template, because even just viewing, not editing, typically requires both.
* '''Show preview before edit box'''. If you select this option, the preview will be displayed above the edit box when you click the "Show preview" button while editing a page.
* '''Add pages you edit to your watchlist'''. If this option is selected, any pages that you modify will be automatically added to your watchlist.
* '''Mark all edits minor by default'''. This option automatically selects the "This is a minor edit" checkbox when you edit pages.
* '''Use external editor by default'''. (New to 1.5) Changes editing from online version to external program. See [[
* '''Use external diff by default'''. (New to 1.5) Changes diffing from online version to external program. See [[
* '''Prompt me when entering a blank edit summary'''. If selected, the editor will display a warning message when no edit summary is added to the edit summary box, after the "Save page" button is pressed.
Threshold for stub display:
* '''Number of titles on recent changes''': You may select the number of changes which will be shown by default on the [[
* '''Hide minor edits in recent changes'''. Registered users may choose to mark edits as being minor (meaning fixes too trivial for trusting users to check up on). It applies to [[
* '''Enhanced recent changes''' (not for all browsers). Group recent changes per day by article, display the titles of the changed articles in order from new to old latest change, or in the case of hiding minor edits, latest major change. This feature applies also to Related Changes, but not to the watchlist.

* '''Hits to show per page''': You may choose the number of results returned on each page of [[
* '''Lines to show per hit''' is somewhat cryptic; specifying a number n means: "do not show any context if the search term occurs beyond line n in the page"; here a paragraph, as well as the blank line between two paragraphs, each count as one "line"; line breaks in the source, even when not affecting the lay-out of the page (and even when not directly visible in the edit box of the article), affect the line count. Setting the parameter to 5000 or more gives context for every occurrence.
* '''Characters of context per line''': the number of characters of context per occurrence; however, the context is anyway restricted to the "line" (see above) it occurs in. To get the whole line, put a large number like 5000.
*'''Search in these namespaces by default''': shows a list of all namespaces (not the same in all projects; for older MediaWiki versions, which do not have [[Special:Version]], this is also a useful indicator what version is used; for even older versions that do not have this item in the preferences, see the list after performing a search), allowing one to select which ones are searched by default; see also [[

* '''Show hoverbox over wiki links'''. This option determines whether a [[w:Hyperlink|link title]] is put in the HTML code. The result depends on the browser: putting the mouse pointer over a [[
* '''Underline links'''. Normally, link text will be underlined. Optionally, you may request that links not be underlined, although your browser may not respect this setting. Normally links that are not underlined can still be recognized by color. However, one can then not distinguish between two consecutive words being a single link or two links, without pointing at the words with the cursor. For an old discussion of changing the default here, see [[m:Link style vote]]. For further choices of style of links in general and/or types of links one can use CSS (site-wide for all skins, site-wide per skin, user-specific per skin, or web-wide, user-specific)
* '''Format broken links <font color="CC2200"><u>like this</u></font>'''. An internal link to a non-existing pages is automatically a link to the edit page. By default the link label of <nowiki>[[b]]</nowiki> and <nowiki>[[a|b]]</nowiki> is "b", just like for links to existing pages. Alternatively the link label is a question mark inserted after "b", like this: A red link[[A red link|?]]. The appearance of the link is further determined by the style specified for css selectors "a.new" and "a.new:hover" (the example on the preferences page wrongly uses class="internal" for the question mark). Internal links to pages which do not yet exist currently appear on your browser [[like this one]]. Normally, this is underlined and in red. With the trailing question mark link one can then not distinguish between a single word being linked or a phrase of more than one word, without pointing at the question mark with the cursor. Also, remember that the question mark does not mean that the information is uncertain.
*'''Auto-number headings'''. This adds hierarchical outline-style numbering to headers in articles.
*'''Show [[w:table of contents|table of contents]] (for articles with more than 3 headings)'''
