lighttpd Edit

I *suggest* (not request) the HTTP server be migrated from Apache to lighttpd. This *should* drastically increase performance when bots are being run and multiple edits are going on. Normal 20:50, 24 March 2007 (EDT)

Server now using lighttpd. GRYPHONtc 17:36, 4 April 2007 (EDT)

Upload a new version of this file bug Edit

Isn't this normal wiki behavior? Due to the way that this wiki caches pages, pages don't reflect changes unless there is a direct edit (or someone uses "action=purge") to that page. Not quite sure on the specifics, but I just remember it somewhere. Pzychotix 23:32, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps, but it's at least good to note it somewhere :P I just moved the info from the other page, don't blame me ^^ Kirkburn talk contr 00:13, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

Math tags Edit

  • Implementation of <math> and </math> tags. --Sky2042
    • What the hell do we need that for? oO --Adys 23:36, 13 July 2007 (UTC)
      • Probably Formula: pages. --Pcj (TC) 23:37, 13 July 2007 (UTC)

lua syntax highlighting Edit

I've already heard it quite often, and I think it would be a nice feature for all the macros and API-stuff where code exists. GeSHi supports lua, but may have performance problems, dunno - maybe even a better solution exists.  Flotsam | talk | contr )  15:12, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Something like http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:GeSHiHighlight, perhaps? Kirkburn talk contr 15:40, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
I'm in favor of mw:Extension:SyntaxHighlight GeSHi, as that's stable enough to be used on WikiMedia wikis. It's essentially flotsam's original suggestion. --Sky (t · c · w) 03:23, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

Edit button Bug Edit

Just thought I'd note, this seems to be a bug in quite a few versions of the media-wiki software, caused by placement and location of images and certain other objects. It looks like it's been fixed in 1.10.x so at whatever point in time WoWWiki upgrades it should go away. --Oni Ookami AlfadorTalk|@ 12:33, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Can anyone confirm? Kirkburn talk contr 18:28, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Bot API Edit

How about the Query API or MediaWiki API? (The former may already be part of WoWWiki, but disabled or unavailable.) These APIs can make bot requests considerably more efficient (for both the bot and the wiki) by allowing them to bypass the parser and formatter. // DarkRyder / Gossipgossipicon / Trainergossipicon // 13:02, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

I would like both fixored up so that I can run wikipedia:Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser, which just doesn't quite work yet. --Sky (t · c · w) 05:12, 10 September 2007 (UTC)

Reasoning Edit

What is the reasoning for "Dynamic pagelist" and "Inputbox"? :| --Sky (t · c · w) 05:09, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

The former allows you to show quick lists of new pages, wanted pages, etc. ... whilst the latter makes it easier for articles to be created by newbies. Kirkburn talk contr 05:21, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
But then, how is the former different from using the Special: namespaces pages?
As for the latter, from what I can see, newbies have no problem creating pages... --Sky (t · c · w) 05:30, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
The former allows you to add versions of them to pages. Kirkburn talk contr 05:46, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
Inputbox also allows creating customizable search boxes which is very useful. --Gengar orange 22x22 Fandyllic (talk · contr) 5:33 PM PST 16 May 2008
