Hi guys,

Today I'll explain how to use alaa's jquery_bidi in mediawiki

First: you have to get jquery and jquery_bidi
Second: you will put the js files on the style directory
Third and Last: Edit the style itself.

First: get the javascript files

dont forget to rename the jquery-1.2.6.js --> jquery.js
and from jquery_bidi get only this file --> jquery.bidi.js

Second: Put the files on the style directory
the default style directory is
put the two files there

Third: edit the style
edit this file

add the following lines before body in the head of the html

<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php $this->text('stylepath') ?>/<?php $this->text('stylename') ?>/jquery.js"></script>   
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php $this->text('stylepath') ?>/<?php $this->text('stylename') ?>/jquery.bidi.js"></script>         
<script type="text/javascript">                                         
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $("address, blockcode, blockquote, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, pre, li, dt, dd, ul, ol, dl").filter(":not([dir])").bidi();

that's all
