  • MetaTemplateSaveData.php: A few var_dumps have been left in place for investigative purposes while trying to figure out the #save issue. This will cause minor corruption in the HTML output on dev when the hooks surrounding savedata are called. The issue seems to be that hooks are being called in close succession (e.g., ParserAfterTidy was called twice in a standard view of a random page with #saved data on it). When the timing is just right, this is causing problems as the master and slave databases are syncing. Data on the slave is out-of-date or not found, which is then saved back to the master inappropriately...or at least that's my theory. Robin Hood  (talk) 20:07, 14 August 2014 (GMT)

4 August 2014

  • MetaTemplate.php, SpecialMetaVarsOnPage.php (et al): Work in progress on second Special page. Robin Hood  (talk) 01:28, 5 August 2014 (GMT)

3 August 2014

  • MetaTemplate.php, SpecialPagesWithMetaVar.php (et al): Started work on first Special page. Robin Hood  (talk) 05:11, 3 August 2014 (GMT)
    Done for now. 23:15, 3 August 2014 (GMT)
    Done for real this time. :) 02:15, 4 August 2014 (GMT)

1 August 2014

  • Temporarily set $wgAPIMaxResultSize to 100K and gave everyone on dev the apihighlimits right as proof of concept for this bug. (Note that the actual server address is only being mailed to those who need it, so dev doesn't get slammed with random users launching large queries.) Robin Hood  (talk) 15:30, 1 August 2014 (GMT)
    Settings returned to normal now that bug has been confirmed. 17:37, 1 August 2014 (GMT)

31 July 2014

  • MetaTemplate.php, ApiQueryMetaVars.php: Testing new API module (and afterwards, Special page) to allow listing MetaTemplate #save variables. Basic concept is there, but needs work to get output format as I want it. Robin Hood  (talk) 18:28, 31 July 2014 (GMT)
    Quick update: module seems to work well now and is producing the expected output. 06:48, 1 August 2014 (GMT)

16 May 2014

  • SiteSpecialSearch.php: Updated ESOMod namespace ID to 148 instead of 149. Robin Hood  (talk) 22:31, 16 May 2014 (GMT)

16 April 2014

10 April 2014

  • SiteCustomCode.php, SiteSpecialSearch.php: Updated "ESO" search algorithm. Robin Hood  (talk) 21:43, 10 April 2014 (GMT)

8 April 2014

  • LocalSettings.php: Several experiments to figure out a method of blocking Edit API for anyone other than registered bots. (What's on Restricting API usage doesn't work.) Robin Hood  (talk) 02:50, 8 April 2014 (GMT)

1 April 2014

  • LocalSettings.php: Massive cleanup to remove outdated code and settings, and to re-organize existing settings to be more readable. Robin Hood  (talk) 02:21, 2 April 2014 (GMT)

4 March 2014

  • LocalSettings.php: Mirrored namespace changes done on main wiki.
  • UespCustomCode/SiteSpecialSearch.php: added ESOMod to advanced search page --Alfwyn (talk) 15:07, 4 March 2014 (GMT)

28 February 2014

  • Added setExtraParam() to UespCustomCode/SiteSpecialSearch::load() so talk page setting is preserved on prev/next. Not sure this is the correct/best way to do it, but it seems to work. Robin Hood  (talk) 22:57, 28 February 2014 (GMT)

15 February 2014

  • LocalSettings.php: changed $wgAbuseFilterEmergencyDisableThreshold according to this.
  • Added $wgCaptchaTriggers['addurl'] = false; to all servers to disable captchas on submitting new URLs. Robin Hood  (talk) 21:58, 15 February 2014 (GMT)

7 February 2014

  • MetaTemplate.php and MetaTemplate.alias.php re-updated with only the code changes required for modern versions of MediaWiki. (See this update, which randomly broke templates on content1/2, while content3/dev behaved as expected. In retrospect, I believe this may have been a memcached issue.) Originals saved as *.2014-02-06.php in the event that these same issues occur.

    See the following pages on the MediaWiki site for more info: r52503 (fourth and fifth asterisks), $wgExtensionAliasesFiles, $wgExtensionMessagesFiles, and Special pages: The Setup File. Robin Hood  (talk) 04:28, 7 February 2014 (GMT)

  • UespCustomCode/SiteCustomCode.php: added new special page Mostinterwikis ("Pages with the most interwikis"/language inter-wikis) to list of special pages to remove - no data, feature not used here. --Alfwyn (talk) 15:46, 7 February 2014 (GMT)
  • UespCustomCode/SiteCustomCode.php: define groups for special pages to appear on Special:SpecialPages, so it's the same as current version instead of "other". --Alfwyn (talk) 16:42, 7 February 2014 (GMT)
  • Copied missing UespSiteStats extension from Content1. Did not enable it in LocalSettings.php in case it messed with our stats. Robin Hood  (talk) 23:24, 7 February 2014 (GMT)

5 February 2014

  • UespCustomCode/SiteMonobook.php: replaced a style instance of "width=300px" with "width:300px" --Alfwyn (talk) 16:12, 5 February 2014 (GMT)

4 February 2014

  • Implemented this workaround to {{NS_FULL}} in SiteNamespace.php. (Not done for other UespCustomCode magic words, though, since they're more likely to be used in comparisons as well as links.) Robin Hood  (talk) 03:46, 4 February 2014 (GMT)
  • Undid that change for now, to fix broken trails. --Alfwyn (talk) 13:40, 4 February 2014 (GMT)
  • Removed non-functionally buttons in UespCustomCode/SiteSpecialSearch.php, that get later added by javascript toegether with functionality. --Alfwyn (talk) 14:27, 4 February 2014 (GMT)

3 February 2014

  • Installed Extension:Disambiguator under extensions/Disambiguator and activated it in LocalSettings.php to replace the gone Special:Disambiguations --Alfwyn (talk) 17:59, 3 February 2014 (GMT)
  • Renamed Job Queue class to something a little more logical to avoid conflict with 1.22 rename. Robin Hood  (talk) 19:42, 3 February 2014 (GMT)
  • Ran runJobs.php to clear out existing job queue. Robin Hood  (talk) 19:42, 3 February 2014 (GMT)

1 February 2014

  • Updated the dev wiki with a new copy of the database, images, and current wiki source. Old dev-wiki source code moved to /home/uespdev/uespdevwiki-1feb2014/. -- Daveh (talk) 22:02, 1 February 2014 (GMT)
