Mediawiki 1.25.2 and extensions

Most of the servers are now running PHP 5.5; this is causing problems for the old version of MediaWiki. I've upgraded to the current stable MW, leaving a fine new list of everything that's been broken by replacing MediaWiki 1.20a with the current, supposedly-stable MW 1.25.2:

  • mw:extension:VisualMathCaptcha is abandoned and broken. It will need to be replaced, presumably with KeyCaptcha, as this is breaking user registration.
  • Custom namespaces (such as UnNews) aren't being handled properly, the namespace is listed on Special:Namespaces but sometimes ignored.
  • A few small wikis (such as non-English Illogicopedias) are using an incorrect image path, breaking thumbnail generation
  • mw:Manual:$wgDefaultUserOptions settings need to change, every edit (as default) watchlists a page unless the user Special:Preferences turn this off? Default image size is also appearing as 300px?
  • Any issues with CloudFlare still remain, unless and until an extension is created to purge cached pages once the originals are updated. This is an issue when uploading a new image over an existing one with the same name.
  • User registration CAPTCHA image and associated text is not localised properly for some languages, with Japan as one obvious example.
  • pt: is reporting issues with Truthcode on some domains in some browsers, and some buggy Categories
  • pt: reporting inability to hide the site notice; is this still happening?
  • Editcount output contains thousands separators and extraneous characters, breaking #expr: calculations
  • {{#logotipo: extension isn't changing the logo on a per-page basis
  • JavaScript collapsable tables (like pt:template:anime) are not expanding when clicked; the same issue applies to collapsible mediawiki:sidebar sections (like "reports and requests" on meta:)
  • need to return the correct .css skins for the new MW version
  • misaligned search box at upper-right on Vector skin on meta: commons: and nl: - most others (including pt: and fi:) look correct, yet this is the same MW code?
  • The table code on the front page of is broken, even though this wiki is still on the old version of MW.
  • The interwiki table needs to be updated
  • The 'bot-generated templated pagecount on info:'s front page is not updating properly


  • "Error: 1054 Unknown column 'page_links_updated' in 'field list' (sophia)" should be gone now that the database update is complete; a few minor wikis need to be checked.
  • will need to stay on its old version (MW 1.17) because of no-longer-supported extensions and to avoid breaking the background image; this will require moving the wiki to one of the other servers due to PHP issues.
  • The image server was perennially running out of disc space, an unrelated issue to the MW upgrade. I've moved these to another server with more free space.
  • CloudFlare's IP address is/was appearing in recentchanges for some edits on one server. mw:extension:TrustedXFF may be a possible alternative to fix this.
  • The sites were running slowly or sporadically slowly. Saving pages and thumbnailing images seem to take their sweet time.
  • The image server is not thumbnailing SVG's properly

Broken extensions:

  • mw:extension:MW-EditCount and LogCount are broken, either because of the new MW version or the PHP "upgrade". These extensions have long been abandonware. One possibility is to use the mw:extension:EditCount that Wikia and use, but that doesn't count log entries ("this evil administrator has huffed 1313 pages and banned 666 hapless users") and the template syntax is different {{special:editcount/username}} instead of {{#ec:username}}. Desciclopédia (pt:) is looking at unleashing the 'bots to replace #ec, but a replacement for pt:Desciclopédia:EvilRank will require changing the PHP code.
  • mw:extension:SubmitInToolbar has been broken since PHP 5.3 and removed as abandoned.
  • mw:extension:IRC Chat is abandoned and, like other extensions which derive from "class SpecialPage" in MediaWiki, likely broken. This was on very few wikis (pt: was one) and should only affect the one page that had the JavaScript IRC client displayed.

In Desgalipedia

Erro ao eliminar o ficheiro: Non se puido crear o directorio (Error deleting file: Unable to create directory) "mwstore://local-backend/local-deleted/9/z/z". And... photos can not stabilize thumbnail for.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  15:41, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

It is already giving me a serious nuisance because there are no pictures of usage conditions this situation servers. No image can be miniature and the server does not help at all. The great proof of this are images: in DG and in DP who can not stay without getting bugs.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  05:33, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

One of those images looks correct, the other you deleted? 15:02, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Taking advantage could also check these?

  2. International Superstar Soccer-03.jpg

  4. Not nominated picture

I managed to restore the latest images with thumbnail errors, however, they were all with errors and do not appear under any circumstances. And, new errors arose as not being able to move the pages. Also on occasion, the edit mode, because the server speed, appears like a printed sheet.

Internal error to move pages:

Images again

Images loading again showed problems. Also they do not appear in any way or even miniature-sized.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  15:24, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, but...

You can not in any way upload or remove any new image in Desgalipedia.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  04:53, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Only Firefox using .org?

Truthcode in trouble, it seems only works if you are logged in and using Firefox. USERNAME and navigation templates presets do not have the link Expand/Show (Expandir/Mostrar) with similar cases.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  15:20, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

Pageview counter

Many users questioned whether the DP will not fix the pageview counter. Amazingly, I find it essential.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  22:29, 28 August 2015 (UTC)


See: Forum:Spambots again in UnCommons

... something this new MW broke the anti-spambot measures implemented in the scripts of some sysop in UnCommons and blocking of spambots had to be done manually.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  16:31, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

In Wikinet

The namespace "Anexo:" and "Especial:" in Wikinet vanished without a trace. The "Anexo:" is a very important namespace, it's used to handle things that get incorporated into many articles using transclusion. I think "Especial:" was renamed to "Special:" but this broke all links that use "Especial:". Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 20:03, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
According to the affected namespaces are "Anexo" and "Portal" (one has eleven pages, the other is empty). Especial is built-in and looks normal. Carlb (talk) 20:20, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
The Special:SpecialPages page that's broken here. Mgs (talkthings to revert) 23:00, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
That also seems to be caused by a broken extension, mw:Extension:VisualMathCaptcha is throwing errors even on generating the special page list. On the few wikis already switched to another captcha provider, the page looks normal. 23:38, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, I think it was fixed... BTW... Lua? Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 00:22, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Where are the UnN:Other projects? Wikinet vanished without a trace (it should be here or ) Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 19:07, 21 August 2015 (UTC)

New bug: the software is trying to search the images of Wikinet in (the Desciclopédia folder) instead of (Wikinet's folder). So, no image appears. Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 18:36, 29 August 2015 (UTC)


... does this upgrade mean that now we can add Lua scripts to our pages? Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 00:22, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Issues are getting too slow in all wikis and UnCommons ended up offline.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  03:02, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

mw:extension:PageCSS still works in Wikinet. Mgs (talkthings to revert) 18:24, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Mediawiki:Common.js and .css doesn't update. Mgs (talkthings to revert) 07:43, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

The video navigation template shouldn't play the video in the background when it's not the one active (see the example in the bottom of the page). Is there any way to fix this? Mgs (talkthings to revert) 03:52, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Absent extensions in Inciklopedia

There is currently no mw:Extension:Gadgets (Special:Gadgets does not exist). This is a very useful extension and in uk: users especially depend on it, because I worked on gadgets for long time to improve general conditions of the site especially for editing. Will this extension be installed again? --  Vox 04:25, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Problem reporting pages on individual wikis

These are links to bug report pages active as of Aug 2015 to track MW 1.25.2 upgrade issues, but are not permanent discussion links:

Reporting more (or the same) problems with images

There are problems to go to a page becoming too slow to task. (sometimes in PD, just the wiki is off), there are also problems to edit it disappeared the editing buttons.

Another point is that the loading of pages is so slow that when finally loads the page gets appearance of a printed sheet. It is also flawed getting the loading of images that can not stand in miniature form.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  14:55, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

The page views counter is gone. Isn't it coming back? Mgs (talkthings to revert) 02:05, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

There's no way to get accurate page counts (short of using GoogleAnalytics or other outside services) as the site is behind CloudFlare, so many requests never reach the origin servers. Carlb (talk) 17:47, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

The sites are still problems with loading pictures. Also be able to view them as little miniature and delete them. And this problem is getting too long. Only can carry on UnCommons, I wonder if it is possible and may continue charging these problems do not affect the performance of the charge server (Sophia) by them and not to overload the other servers or the preloaded images do not have problems in the future.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  13:03, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

What is happening with the site loading pictures?
Erro ao eliminar o ficheiro: Nazifacepalm.jpg
Erro ao eliminar o ficheiro: Non se puido crear o directorio "mwstore://local-backend/local-deleted/5/g/6".

I must say that back problems loading images?  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  13:49, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

This is the same problem that happens when uploading images to the local wikis. In uploading or deleting images, the system generates two hashtags in order to place the image in the correct folder but, for some unknown reason, this process has a bug. So, we can't upload images to the local sites (because the image goes somewhere else, not the place indicated by the hashtags, or it's the reverse, the image goes to the correct place but when we try to get it the hashtags are wrong) and we can't delete images.
Of course I have no idea what the software does, but I suspect that at one point it's taking the subfolder and using it to produce the hashtag, while at other point it's ignoring the subfolder.
The hashtags are, for example, the "/e/e4/" in Wikinet's image Osaka_vuvuzela.jpg (gosh, this is soooo 2010...) Cthulhu.fhtagn (talk) 15:32, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
That only means one thing, merely loading the images to be banned in all local wikis until the problem is finally resolved. And you know what that means.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  16:37, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

This has nothing to do with extensions changes but...(domains Desgalilistas and Desgalería)

The Times wanted to comment this type of error but did not dare. Well, there was created two years ago, two new namespaces in Desgalipedia (Desgalilistas and Desgalería) and items that were transferred are not displayed.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  19:13, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

New problems with images in Desgalipedia, UnCommons and...

Since yesterday, the servers has given speed problems getting slow and that moment is in chaos to edit. Do not load any images eas pages are getting too slow.

Editing denial in Desgalipedia

The server can not accept any editing mine. Now I do not know what the fucking problem but any issue is canceled giving loss of connection. It becomes absurd when I notice 10 items created by another editor and I can not do a damn issue to fix. The server also does not accept the loading of images. Becomes unbearable and unacceptable that.  Rhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 3,352 preppiedits  23:45, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Simple English Uncyclopedia broken

The Simple English Uncyclopedia seems to have something terribly wrong with it. I'm not sure if it's a caching issue or what. It's reproducible on different ISPs.

I first noticed if I tried to edit an article, the page would not reflect the changes. I have now noticed that it seems that the server is only ever fetching the data once, and seemingly feeding that same, single result to whoever accesses the articles. This includes for things like logins, new articles, etc. It seems that every so often it resets, and you can view the latest versions of articles.

I'm not sure if what I'm saying makes sense, as I'm not a web server administrator. Just go and play around with it and you'll see that it's broken. Kazimiera (talk) 10:20, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
