Extension talk:WikiFactory

From mediawiki.org
Latest comment: 10 years ago by Inquisitor Ehrenstein in topic Are there any directions to install this?


This extension seems way too Wikia-specific to be of any use to people looking to implement a wiki farm with an online configuration editor. For example,


global $wgDevelEnvironment;

if( !empty( $wgDevelEnvironment ) ) {
	$this->mTarget = "root@";
} else {
	$this->mTarget = "root@";

Is there any documentation on the server setup that Wikia is using? If not, I'm not sure if the majority of this extension is of use to anyone outside of Wikia. --Cmelbye 03:40, 4 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not aware of any, but if you use the contact form, then someone might be able to provide more info. I just added the page as a lot of people were asking how Wikia does this. Angela 04:35, 4 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WikiFactory special page[edit]

I can not find the "Wikifactory" in special page. why?

It should show up as Wiki Factory Configurator if you are logged in with the appropriate permissions. On Wikia, that means "staff". You may need to change that on your own wiki to suit the user groups you have there. Angela 20:53, 5 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
thank you very much! I am a newer for Wiki. I use Mediawiki by "localhost" in my computer. I want to know which permission can use the "Wiki Factory Configurator". Thanks for your help!--Simonlsw 14:49, 8 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
People with 'wikifactory' permission. You may need to add that to a user group on your wiki. Angela 23:59, 8 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
thanks for your help. I have the permission of 'wikifactory', but I do not still find the Wiki Factory Configurator in specail page. :) I do not know how to show it.
Sorry, but I don't know why. You could try asking on the mailing list. Angela 22:44, 9 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

any thing like this in the regular mediawiki tree ??

Wierd SQL bug[edit]

I just installed this and used everything default even the .sql database provided in the Close and this is what I got

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

   SELECT cat_id FROM `city_cat_mapping` WHERE city_id IS NULL LIMIT 1 

from within function "WikiFactoryHub::getCategoryId". Database returned error "1146: Table 'wikigrey_wiki.city_cat_mapping' doesn't exist (localhost)".

Can anyone help me at all? Please?

If you come back to read this, you need to create an SQL table named city_cat_mapping with the "wikigrey_wiki" as a field with an int of greater than 1. Also create a field of "cat_id" with the type int greater than 1 and another field of "city_id" with a number between 1 and 10 as the int type. After that, add $wgCityId = "1"; to LocalSettings.php. So far I haven't tried WikiFactory without the entire Wikia repository. Cheers, -- Ryan PM 00:42, 22 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
