All of his edits need to be undone--I don't have time to deal with the translations at the moment.

The .pdf files are rendered but the files are faulty this means that although the .pdf can be opened the contents are jumbled, specifically anything that is numbered in the document does not number properly as per the original document, oddly the even numbers are missed out so that things number as follows 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 etc instead of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 etc.

See Project:Support desk?action=info.

"Transcluded template (1)" is followed by a broken link "Template:/Header".

The link should be "Project:Support desk/Header".

Curious, so does my talk page, and Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:/Header lists those pages as containing links to that template.

Mainframe98 (talkcontribs)

A quick test on my sandbox links expands correctly on non-flowboards, so that would indicate that this is a Flow specific bug.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

See Special:LintErrors/missing-end-tag as another example.

Extension requests also contains {{/Header}}.

This error is reported on Phabricator: T167255.

It now actually has its own specific task: T167338.

Unable to edit Interwiki due to error" relation "ignore" does not exist

Summary by Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

MediaWiki 1.23.15, PostgresSQL 9.5.4, Interwiki 2.3 20140327

Attempting to edit existing Interwiki data to update change in URL, but always fails. Error logs show: relation "ignore" does not exist. Example: "UPDATE /* SpecialInterwiki::doSubmit first.last */ IGNORE "interwiki" SET"...etc...

Googling suggests Postgresql does not support the IGNORE that MySQL has. Apparently the MediaWiki core DatabasePostgres.php does not account for this. Found someone's attempt at an update to the core file, but very wary of it from a compatibility standpoint (no version information specified). Is there a patch or other way (aside from updating DB manually) to get Interwiki to work with the table in Postgresql?

Problems not related to website should be in Project:Support desk. Anyway this is tracked in task T130634 where you can find a patch.

False positives with "Ongoing user page spam" filter

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Originally reported by @Mattflaschen-WMF on Project:Support desk:

We should re-evaluate the false positives with Special:AbuseFilter/24 . This blocked an Outreachy intern who was attempting to add a link to her blog about the project.

Perhaps we could only do Disallow, and not Block. I realize that does potentially risk vandals re-trying until they bypass it, but everything's a tradeoff. Or we could tighten up the regex to not match borderline cases that might be legitimate.

As is, it seems we risk false positive blocks discouraging newcomers.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

I'm for not making a filter block unless there's very very low chance to catch a legitimate user. If someone is trying to bypass it (which shouldn't be very difficult since it's not private) we should improve it by learning how they're bypassing it. Adding exceptions should be generally avoided, though, specially on a public filter.

Mattflaschen-WMF (talkcontribs)

I changed it to Disallow. Ping me if there are any issues.

The module advertises MW 1.3 as the current alpha branch. This should be corrected. Thanks and cheers

Are your scripts and gadgets working?

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Some of the recent and upcoming changes to MediaWiki affect Javascript.

If you're having problems with your scripts, then you can ask here for help.

Please also share this information with people at other wikis.

Hi everyone. Some of you have already noticed this in m:Tech News as it's been already mentioned twice, but I wanted to flag again that because of an upcoming change, there's some code that may need to be fixed on this wiki:

You can find the list of the pages you'll want to check in a table on In most cases those are false positives, and you only really need to fix as explained on when the "defective" syntax is inside a template or a wikilink, basically. When you have completed the checks, please edit the Notes field of the table accordingly! If you have questions, please reach the team on the talk page. Hope this helps, and thanks for your attention and your help.
