From I ask questions
Jump to: navigation, search

Just upgraded from MediaWiki 1.16.0 to 1.17.0

Let's see what kind of bugs will appear
(the 4 things - view, edit, upload, check RC - mentioned in: Manual:Upgrading#Test the update very shortly done, no extended tests executed)

in progress, unsorted

recent changes - layout broken

Green tick.svg Done, could be fixed with 2 changes:

  • update TransformChanges (Version 1.1.5, 2009-03-24) to: Version 2.0.4, 2011-07-03
  • change in the MediaWiki:Common.css, see here

calendar layout broken (on main page of Blog)

  • only the border was grey, now all the calendar has a grey background
  • I'm using the newest version of wikicalendar (Version 1.16) already

my gender got lost

Green tick.svg Done by restoring in Special:Preferences

input methods for Usage Statistics decreased

for the Extension:Usage Statistics the popups (when clicking on Select) do not open

Semantic MediaWiki

  • Semantic MediaWiki: from 1.5e-SVN to: 1.6
    • update all extensions for SMW, otherwise you'll get parser errors
    • in my case I had to update: Semantic Forms from 1.5.3 to 2.2.1 Green tick.svg Done

Wikilog + toc magic + strike

  • after using TOC magicword in a blog post, layout of my blog main page got weird (see pic):
    the content of the sidebar got into the right part (sidebar place empty)
    • removing toc or noinclude'ing it helps Green tick.svg Done
    • this is a known bug in Wikilog
  • also the tag for striking causes this behaviour :-(

Wikilog + talk pages

After about 2 weeks I got this error for some talk pages of the blog:

Fatal error: Call to a member function registerWatcher() on a non-object in .../wiki/includes/parser/Parser.php on line 191
  • see bug report
    • I think I did not see this error after installing, Google reported this about 2 days ago as "Soft 404s" error
  • the problem with the info so far is: people are not able to comment :-(

Green tick.svg Done by removing 4 lines in WikilogCommentPager.php, see here

references do not show up

remarks (may not be because of MW)
