It seems that many templates aren't working properly, showing the code used to program the template as a red link, instead of just showing what the code is meant to show. Does anyone know why? Is it something wrong with my computer, or with wowwiki? Will wowwiki be temporarily shut down to deal with it?--Sheffi (talk) 21:08, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

The Semantic MediaWiki got disabled, pcj is looking into it. User:Coobra/Sig4 21:11, September 9, 2010 (UTC)
Though I have no idea what that is, it sounds complicated enough for it to be the problem Winky --Sheffi (talk) 21:45, September 9, 2010 (UTC)
Hm. So I just edited a page that had the patch changes section showing properly, then after I edited it it was bugged. Might this by a sign of a different issue than previously thought? -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 00:30, September 10, 2010 (UTC)
That's probably because when you edit a page it becomes "refreshed" ... since the jobqueues seem to be fudged as well lately. User:Coobra/Sig4 04:35, September 10, 2010 (UTC)

An Update: I hadn't realized that SMW had been turned off for WoWwiki - sorry for missing that! This has always been a difficult extension, although a very useful and powerful one. Annoyingly, it can slow the site drastically at times -- which is what's been happening recently. The techy guys are looking in to it, it seems that we may need to get some new hardware specifically to support this feature. The next MediaWiki update will also help a lot by allowing us to update the extension. That update is not firmly scheduled yet, but will be after the switch to the new look. If and when I hear more, I'll let you know. Sorry for not updating sooner -- sannse@Wikia (help forum | blog) 18:54, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the update. =) User:Coobra/Sig4 21:05, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
I should have waited an extra day ;) They have moved it to a faster server, so it's back on now. All seems stable so far! -- sannse@Wikia (help forum | blog) 15:11, September 17, 2010 (UTC)
