If you are logged in the link will work fine. for example [[:Category:NPCs]] has 2 pages but when not logged in you cannot get to the 2nd page.

Revision as of 23:17, November 9, 2007

A collection of the main requests for future server and wiki upgrades, and known wiki bugs. This is so that we can organize our wishes and decide upon what upgrades are most required.
We request that before making additions, please first discuss them on the talk page.

New requests

Extensions

Code

$wgRC2UDPAddress = 'dotted.sytes.net';
$wgRC2UDPPort = 9390;
$wgRC2UDPPrefix = ;

Presentation admins can't change

  • Merge in override changes from MediaWiki:Wowwiki.css to the wowwiki skin's main.css.
  • Change/add site meta description, i.e. not "Offers information and walk-throughs on classes, professions, quests, add-ons, and macros." as shown on Google
  • Sidebar changes:
    • Better Google/Wikia ad presentation - should match sidebar in border, colours (sidebar needs changes anyway).
    • Wikia spotlight has "google ads" heading.
    • A link via an asterisk (*) to WoWWiki:Searching in the Monobook search box.

Possible and probable bugs

  • The "next 200" links on pages with more options than can fit on a single page are not working correctly. This only affects users who are not logged in the website. If you are logged in the link will work fine. for example Category:NPCs has 2 pages but when not logged in you cannot get to the 2nd page.
  • [edit] links sometimes being pushed down by images and right-floats on FF2. Cause unknown. This is sourced on bugzilla (somewhere)...
  • Built-in search box (OpenSearch) stuff for IE7 and FF is broken - seems to be missing a file.
  • Redirects to other wikia sites appear as broken redirects.
  • Project: pages do not forward to WoWWiki: - e.g. in the footer, Project:About
  • Imagelink is showing some odd errors - example on [2] - see the long blue links.
  • Pages broken by the namespace implementations, many of which can be found at Special:BrokenRedirects (the ones with a space eg "Guild: <name>". Editors can't edit those, admins can't delete them (it takes both to the properly named page, eg "Guild:<name>"). Can they be purged manually from serverside?

Current requests

  • Forum
    • The DPLForum (seen on Central) is currently giving some problems. A phpp forum is being developed - see http://inside.wikia.com/forum for an example of this.

Completed

  • MediaWiki:Sitenotice shows no [dismiss] link.
    • This is actually an extension that has not been installed here, rather than a bug. TOR@Wikia 15:40, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 18:05, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Implement namespace changes at WoWWiki:Namespaces#Conclusion
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 17:44, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
  • User block changes - when we block users, the user is banned from editing anything, whereas on other wikis they can still edit talk pages. May need two levels of bans here, as some bans are for (repeat) talk page vandalism.
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 12:40, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Interwiki link to http://www.mediawiki.org/
    • Done. mw: and mediawikiwiki: will now work (might take up to an hour to go live). TOR@Wikia 12:40, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Replace Arr_r.png and Arr_d.png with Image:Icon-next-12x12.png and Image:Icon-down-12x12.png.
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 14:25, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Broken when we upgraded to 1.10. Fix plx. :) --User:Sky2042/Sig 20:23, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 13:27, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Redirect arrow fix - change redirectltr.png for Image:Icon-redirect-48x48.png
    • Needs to be fixed; it also was broken by 1.10 upgrade.
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 13:27, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Non-admin members of the patrollers not able to mark own edits as patrolled (via option in preferences - used to exist). Possible bug.
    • Done. Please verify. TOR@Wikia 15:40, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
    • Verifying --User:Sky2042/Sig 20:20, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
  • When logged out, the wiki confusingly shows "E-mail confirmation required to edit" rather than "Register to edit" (ever since the anonymous editing trial).
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 15:40, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
  • Replace Arr_r.png and Arr_d.png with Image:Icon-next-12x12.png and Image:Icon-down-12x12.png.
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 14:25, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
  • MakeBot
    • Done. TOR@Wikia 16:55, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
  • CheckUser Extension
    • Done. Available to Wikia staff only per privacy policy. TOR@Wikia 14:44, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Redirect arrow fix - change redirectltr.png for Image:Icon-redirect-48x48.png
    • Done. Nice icon, by the way. TOR@Wikia 13:24, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Cite/refs extension
    • Done. Detailed usage instructions can be found at MediaWiki.org. TOR@Wikia 13:24, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Provide wiki access to CSS
  • Wikia interwiki links - Wikia, Starcraft.wikia, Blizzard.wikia, Diablo.wikia links needed.
    • Done. You can now link to Central Wikia by using the w: or wikia: interwikis. To link to any other Wikia wiki use w:c:[name_of_wiki][:article_title] (works exactly like on other Wikia sites). TOR@Wikia 16:26, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
  • Provide wiki access to javascript

Delayed

The following requests will not be completed at this time due to the strain it would cause to the server. We will, however, make these features available as soon as we have another machine to help with that.

  • SVG image upload
  • Implementation of </code> tag.
* [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:%24wgAllowDisplayTitle $wgAllowDisplayTitle] = true; (if it's easy to do and upgrading to 1.11 is going to be awhile)
*: This is buggy in pre-1.11. Please be patient. The upgrade will happen soonish, really. [[User:TOR|TOR]]<staff /> 16:19, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

== Denied ==
* [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Newuserlog Newuserlog]
** This isn't compatible with Wikia's systems, because of the way our user database is set up
