Code?[edit]

This looks like a handy way to annotate text within an article for discussion... but the code is missing.

Semantic MediaWiki component[edit]

How does this tie in with Semantic MediaWiki? Yaron Koren 20:51, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

  • pmwx should complement SMW or other extensions to MediaWiki and provide a fine-grained addressability to the content. --PeterYim / 2008.12.10-05:43 UTC
But why is Semantic MediaWiki, of all the extensions, mentioned specifically in the description? Yaron Koren 16:25, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

PHP warning[edit]

I am using MeidiaWiki 1.3.1 and SMW 1.3.1. I got the following warnings. Any idea? --129.176.151.10 22:34, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated; If you would like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of [runtime function name]().

  • These warning messages were due to depracted function call which has been fixed and a fresh version is released for download.--Viralgupta 20:56, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Installation Instructions[edit]

I'm not sure that I understand the installation instructions. I would expect the process to be:

  1. download to extensions/pmwx
  2. add "require_once('extensions/pmwx/PMWX_PurpleNumbers.php');" to LocalSettings.php

While I was tempted to change the instructions on the home page, they are unusual enough that I thought I'd ask first...

Wordchisler 19:38, 21 February 2009 (UTC): I hope some one will change the instructions. I got it working with LocalSettings.php addition:
require_once("$IP/extensions/pmwx/PMWX_PurpleNumbers.php");

This extension interferes with floating tables.[edit]

Floating Table.

A table marked align=right should appear on the right hand side of the article. Instead the table is appearing before the rest of the article text.

This extension interferes with headertabs[edit]

Very interesting extension, especially in my installation created for our engineering department. Unfortunately it doesn't work with Header Tabs in this environment:

  • MW 1.16.0
  • PHP 5.3.2
  • MySQL 5.1.41

I haven't quite found a fixed pattern for failure, but in this example:

= Tab 1 =
Contents of tab 1
= Tab 2 =
Contents of tab 2
= Tab 3 =
Contents of tab 3
<headertabs />

produces this output
PMWXTab1.png PMWXTab2.png PMWXTab3.png

All or Nothing?[edit]

Is there a way, such as a magic word, to disable or hide the purple numbers selectively? Example: per article / per section / per table / per list basis?

Is there a way to to set the default to Hide for a given article?

Invitation to Berlin hackathon[edit]

Hi! Just wanted to invite the authors of this extension to Berlin Hackathon 2012, 1-3 June 2012 in Berlin, Germany. You'll get to collaborate with other MediaWiki extensions developers and learn about upcoming features in MediaWiki.

Source code?[edit]

Does anyone have a copy of the code for this still? All the download links (even on the wayback machine) are dead. Sam Wilson 03:13, 9 April 2018 (UTC)
