This is the place to report problems and give feedback about unstable (alpha) releases of MediaWiki. If you want to help with testing but you don't want to run your own test wiki, you can experiment with .

If you find something that doesn't work as expected, make a note of it here.


  • If you're comfortable entering bugs in Phabricator (which has replaced Bugzilla) and you think this is a bug in MediaWiki, then please do so. Add {{Tracked|T1234}} just before the bug report and replace "1234" by the actual task number.
  • If you file a task in Phabricator, it is often very useful to include links to any on-wiki discussion.

Documentation still sucks -- MarkAHershberger(talk) 04:18, 8 January 2012 (UTC)[]

Central notice[edit]

When browsing log: Catchable fatal error: Argument 1 passed to IndexPager::__construct() must implement interface IContextSource, instance of SpecialCentralNoticeLogs given, called in /usr/local/apache/common/live/extensions/CentralNotice/CentralNoticePageLogPager.php on line 18 and defined in /usr/local/apache/common/live/includes/Pager.php on line 109

Double descriptions on Commons File pages[edit]

This appears to be a conflict with imports and InstantCommons.

Developers in charge of this decided to WONTFIX it. :P

Javascript errors with Monobook skin[edit]

The error doesn't show up on the JS console with Vector.

Username doesn't stay logged in[edit]

I created User:Hexmode-test and when I log in with the user, the "you're logged in" page has "Log out" in the upper right hand corner, but navigating away from that page shows that I'm not logged in: "Log in" appears again in the upper right hand corner. Interestingly it doesn't happen with my current user or on Opera or Chrome. -- MarkAHershberger (talk) 01:54, 12 January 2012 (UTC)[]

Note that I thought part of this could be a caching problem: When I log out on Opera and the return to the previous page (not by using the "back" button, but by clicking on "Return to Problem reports.") the upper right shows "Log out" instead of "Log in". Reloading does show the correct thing, though. Upon further testing, though, this maybe the length of time to load the log out icon.

Further testing on FF shows that this appears to be a problem of a faulty cookie. Erasing all my cookies and the logging in keeps me logged in. -- Hexmode-test (talk) 03:05, 12 January 2012 (UTC)[]

mw.util.$content is null[edit]

This is about

  1. mw.util is undefined when attempting to access from MediaWiki:Common.js without using mw.loader.load
  2. despite wrapping all inside mw.loader.using('mediawiki.util', function(){ mw.util.$content is null. But it shouldn’t since the code wrapped inside mw.loader.using('mediawiki.util'... should be executed after mw.util is initialized. -- Rillke (talk) 22:17, 12 January 2012 (UTC)[]
Fixed. For more details see bugzilla:33711. Krinkle (talk) 03:53, 14 January 2012 (UTC)[]
Fixed on enwiki too. -- MarkAHershberger (talk) 04:54, 14 January 2012 (UTC)[]
NOT FIXED. Just broke the half common.js . Just did importScript('bla') and got Error $ is undefined.
To reproduce the $content is null - problem, use Firefox 9.0.1 with Firebug, activate the script panel and in the console-panel click "stop/halt on all errors", then go to Shift+Reload. Debugger stops at -- Rillke (talk) 11:10, 14 January 2012 (UTC)[]

$.cookie not defined[edit]

I get the following Javascript error on

  • Uncaught TypeError: Object function (selector,context){return new jQuery.fn.init(selector,context,rootjQuery);} has no method 'cookie'

Seems like jQuery's cookie plugin isn't initialized properly. NOTE: This seems only apparent when enabling the MenuTabsToggle gadget (which uses cookies). (It does work in the Commons test wiki.) Edokter (talk) — 14:19, 13 January 2012 (UTC)[]

More script errors (pointing to legacyWikibits) on enwiki:

  • Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'getParamValue' of undefined
  • Uncaught TypeError: Cannot call method 'wikiUrlencode' of undefined

Edokter (talk) — 14:44, 13 January 2012 (UTC)[]

Fixed. For more details see bugzilla:33711. Short: Dependencies must be declared. Gadget likely already broke for some people in race conditions / bad luck / slow connection. Modules are loaded a bit faster now, making race conditions more important and lack of dependency declaration more visible. Fixed for that gadget on wmflabs here: Krinkle (talk) 03:52, 14 January 2012 (UTC)[]

https does not work[edit]

Maybe not a MediaWiki bug, but all testwikis have no https support: It is possible to enable https for the testwikis? Thanks. Umherirrender (talk) 19:21, 14 January 2012 (UTC)[]

Script does not run[edit]

Can anyone tell me why this does nothing on the labs Commons version? To be more specific, if I put in an alert in the third parameter, it will trigger the alert. If I use "jQuery.cookie" (note the case), I get "unknown dependency". Yet this code, either wit "jquery.cookie" or "jQuery.cookie", works perfectly on the real Commons. Edokter (talk) — 20:18, 14 January 2012 (UTC)[]

/* Menu-Tabs toggler */
mw.loader.using( 'jquery.cookie', function() {
    mw.loader.load( '//' );
} );
Hi, I assume because
$(function() { console.log('bla') });
$(document).ready(function() { console.log('bla') });
does not work on Testwiki-Commons. This is because mw.util.$content is null and throws an error inside a $(). Just try it yourself on the real commons:
$(function() { console.log('before error') });
$(function() { throw new Error('I will kill every following call to $j(document).ready()!!!') });
$(function() { console.log('after error') });
and in testwikicase the error occurs in the common.js preventing all scripts that execute later from working properly.
Krinkle decided to undo commenting out the culprits and did not offer a response to the $content-null-problem. -- Rillke (talk) 22:12, 15 January 2012 (UTC)[]
Just try the following (run from a multiline-console (like firebug, IE developer tools)) and you'll see that jquery.cookie is loaded:

It seesm $.cookie is not the problem; instead, mw.loader.using() just fails. Anyway, since it is only a problem on the beta Commons, it should't be much of a problem. I am throwing it on a local config issue. Edokter (talk) — 00:24, 16 January 2012 (UTC)[]

css differences[edit]

<Saibo> And in the rotation popup the font is different from the normal UI.  
<Saibo>      Commons: ".ui-widget {    font-family: sans-serif;" 
<Saibo>      beta:    ".ui-widget {    font-family: Verdana,Arial,sans-serif;"
<Saibo> And in the rotation popup the corners of the buttons and title bare
       are rounded - not so in the old Commons. That non-round corners match
       Monobook much better. 
<Saibo> don't know the sources of the font differences  - may be bad

Announce all JavaScript changes[edit]

Please list all the important JavaScript changes coming with MW 1.19. Looking at some comments here/bugzilla/enwiki one could think addPortletLink and importScript are dropped in MediaWiki.

"Show preview" often only reacts to the second click[edit]

While editing, I noticed that clicking the "Show preview" button in the edit window often does not work the first time around, the preview is only shown after clicking the button again. This happened to me several times, but unfortunately I can't reproduce it right now and so can't investigate further. I'm using Firefox 9.0.1 on Ubuntu Oneiric. -- tbleher

Seen on

To reproduce this disable the WikiEditor toolbar in your preferences. The module ext.wikiEditor.toolbar.hideSig is still loaded, which doesn't hurt but is superfluous.

RL does not update the minified versions in an appropriate time[edit]

On I even

tried to delete & restore common.js but is simply does not update (except if you change your skin or language)

Just try it yourself. (e.g. with a new console.log-line)

I don't know whether this is specific to MW 1.19 or just the test-environment.

Old recent changes when not logged in[edit]

Hrm... on further investigation, I see what you're talking about. Interestingly, enabling the "Use a black background with green text on the Monobook skin" without the Vector skin -- which I've done repeatedly in the past -- does change *most* of the background to black with green text but leaves some oddities.

Special:MergeAccount threw error[edit]

Hello! I just tried to merge my account at to login here as well. This was needed because I had to be renamed, as creating an account "✓" is prohibited.

So I got toühren and inserted my password. This was the result (in div#mw-content-text):

Already attached -- race condition?

Though, when I revisit the page, it says nothing had happened, matching to de:Spezial:Verwaltung Benutzerkonten-Zusammenführung/✓ and Special:CentralAuth/✓ (Why does the interwiki de: point to deployment, redirecting to labs?). I also got logged out here ( while writing this text, but that may be the report #Username doesn't stay logged in. -- (talk) 02:27, 18 February 2012 (UTC)[]

Just to add: The error is reproducable here at Special:MergeAccount -- (talk) 02:30, 18 February 2012 (UTC)[]

Upgrade MediaWiki from 1.18 to 1.22.4[edit]

After upgrading to ver 1.22.4 I receive the following error notice, when opening my site: "Warning: require_once() [function.require-once]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'UTC' for 'UTC/0.0/no DST' instead in /home/dorotinf/public_html/wikigenia/includes/GlobalFunctions.php on line 2300

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end, expecting T_VARIABLE or '$' in /home/dorotinf/public_html/wikigenia/includes/GlobalFunctions.php on line 2300"

Can anyone help?
