I'm using MediaWiki: 1.7.1, PHP: 5.1.5 (apache2handler) and MySQL: 5.0.24-community-nt

I had to change

// Add special page
  if (  version_compare( $wgVersion, '1.7.1', '<' )) {
    require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . '/xyAttributeQuery.php');
    SpecialPage::addPage(new XyAttributeQuery() );
    }
  else {
    if ( !function_exists( 'extAddSpecialPage' ) ) {
      require( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../ExtensionFunctions.php' );
      }
    extAddSpecialPage( dirname(__FILE__) . '/xyAttributeQuery.php', 'XyAttributeQuery', 'XyAttributeQuery' );
    }

to

// Add special page
  if (  version_compare( $wgVersion, '1.7.1', '<=' )) {
    require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . '/xyAttributeQuery.php');
    SpecialPage::addPage(new XyAttributeQuery() );
    }
  else {

    if ( !function_exists( 'extAddSpecialPage' ) ) {
      require( dirname(__FILE__) . '/../' );
      }
    extAddSpecialPage( dirname(__FILE__) . '/xyAttributeQuery.php', 'XyAttributeQuery', 'XyAttributeQuery' );


    }

in xyAttribute.php

There's no ExtensionFunctions.php in 1.7.1, and I couldn't find much about the file. Seems to work fine after the change.

Icon issue: Using MW 1.7.1, had to comment out the $xyAttributePng line in LocalSettings.php in order for the button to display properly in the editor. --Jtautry 21:31, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Props[edit]

Just wanted to leave some props. Very cool extension. --131.158.72.67 22:12, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

MW Versions[edit]

Is it possible to have it on MW 1.6.7? Any changes to code are needed?

Having problems in 1.9.2 version[edit]

  • I am getting

"Fatal error: Call to undefined function wfInsertArray() in /opt/lampp/mediawiki/extensions/xyAttribute/xyAttribute.php on line 170"

--129.46.173.14 02:10, 17 February 2007 (UTC)


  • I had the same problem using version 1.9.3

Solved including the following statement right before line 170:

 require_once("./includes/DatabaseFunctions.php");

missing specialpage[edit]

I simply don't have the page for querying the data. I had some minor issues installinng the extension (like missing ExtensionFunctions.php that I didn't have in the extensions directory and a missing localization file plus I had to paste the SQL thing in phpMyAdmin) that I fixed. But I don't have the special page, I usually nuke everything that doesn't work, but this is a neat extension and anyway the data is being gathered even if I don't have any specialpage for querying it.

Any suggestions on manually creating the specialpage? 354d 18:11, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

More recent versions?[edit]

Just wondering if there are any plans to update this extension for the more recent versions of MediaWiki, specifically 1.12?

Working with 1.11.2[edit]

  • Installing ExtensionFunctions.php and activating DatabaseFunctions.php as described above
  • Adding return values for some functions in xyAttribute.php

Here is the whole patch for xyAttribute.php

>   return true;
86c87
<   if ($action != 'xyAttributes') return;
---
>   if ($action != 'xyAttributes') return false;

>   return true;

Working with 1.13.3[edit]

  • Using this modified xyAttribute.php and adding to the extension folder ExtensionFunctions.php and activating DatabaseFunctions.php as described above will get things working with 1.13.3. (Based on the post above)

1.16.1[edit]

In xyAttributeQuery.php there is an apparent typo. Around line 235, the query button creation line should look like:

<TD><INPUT name="ok" type="submit" value="$Query" /></TD>

The unbalanced <TD </TD tags in the downloaded file cause Chrome and EI8 and EI9 to choke and fail to display the button. Firefox is more forgiving and never had this problem.
