What happened to my talk page?

I jumped in to repair the talk page itself, however someone should investigate what went wrong.

On 7 April 2020, the Flow talk page manager archived the page. I assume(?) this was initiated by the user opting-in to Flow.

  • It used the the expected edit summary (Adding archive template).
  • It added the expected archive header and category.
  • Oddly, it also repeated the Welcome message that was already present.

On 30 April 2020, the Flow talk page manager de-archived the page. I assume(?) this was initiated by the user opting-out of Flow.

  • It used the the expected edit summary (Removing archive template).
  • Incorrectly, it added a second archive header.
  • Oddly, it also added a third copy of the Welcome message.

Possibly relevant clue(?): The Welcome template that was on the talk page is normally supposed to be substed but it wasn't. The Flow talk page manager left the Welcome template intact, and each time it added a subst version.

I did not opt-out of flow on April 30th. This happened without me doing anything (at least not knowingly). -- Discostu (talk) 07:38, 2 May 2020 (UTC)

As I am using StructeredDecisions on a smaller Wiki, I would like to see the most recent discussions in some sort of list linking to the respective pages (more lik a forum/table view). Did somebody already program something similar?

My talk page for zhwiki broke with this exception. Where should I report this? I see that there is a ticket on Phabricator; should I have reported there instead?

How can I force Flow talk page manager to disable Flow on my talk page?

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

On which wiki?

If you've got it enabled as a beta feature, disabling it there should remove the StructuredDiscussions system from your talk page.

On a wiki like this one where it's enabled by default, you instead need to go to Special:ChangeContentModel and change the content model of the blank page to "wikitext".

Keyacom (talkcontribs)

I meant this wiki. I know changing content model is restricted to administrators here. Yes, I want the same feeling as on Ciencia Al Poder's talk page.

Summary by Minorax

Seems like user's talk page on zh.wiki has been converted back to flow.

Cryberghost (talkcontribs)

开启flow后仍是旧的讨论区!

Minorax (talkcontribs)

请加以说明。

Cryberghost (talkcontribs)

@Minorax昨天意外关掉Flow,今天8.00重启了,现在还是旧的讨论区!

Minorax (talkcontribs)

您是再说您自己的用户讨论页吗?

Cryberghost (talkcontribs)

@Minorax对的,是我中文维基百科的用户讨论页。

Minorax (talkcontribs)

如果我没错的话,您应该将当前的讨论页面移至存档页面,以在您的讨论页开启flow。

Cryberghost (talkcontribs)

@Minorax我是个新手不会弄!

Minorax (talkcontribs)

那您应该找个管理员来帮你啊。

Is it possible search across discussion topics? Either using MediaWiki search functionality or by installing Google search on MediaWiki installation?

Tinss (talkcontribs)

I'm pretty sure it's possible with CirrusSearch. I don't know how one does that though. Maybe through enabling search on the Topic namespace?

Summary by KHarlan (WMF)

Flow does not work with SQLite, see https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T138316

AlgoLove (talkcontribs)

Can anybody help?


Thanks

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

Yes, please ask your questions. If anyone can help you, they will.

AlgoLove (talkcontribs)

How important is the recommended version of SQLite for a successful installation of Echo and Structured Discussions?

I encountered issues installing Structured discussions and its dependencies the errors I encountered include updating the database schema.

I am trying to successfully install structured Discussions and its dependencies?

KHarlan (WMF) (talkcontribs)

AFAICT we don't test either of these extensions with SQLite, so I'm not sure if they should work or not. Can you post the errors you encountered?

AlgoLove (talkcontribs)

I haven't tested this yet @KHarlan (WMF) i will do and record the errors. any suggestions on the MW version i should install is it worth installing the unstable master versions? @AlgorithmGG

KHarlan (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@AlgoLove looks like the same issue as task T138316, so I don't think it's going to work for you with SQLite, sorry.

AlgoLove (talkcontribs)

The errors i encountered came from the database schema update.i am trying to establish if SQlite is the issue or if ignore external dependencies will do the trick without the errors.


AlgoLove (talkcontribs)

I am using the following versions

Version info is Rell1_33 extensions

MediaWiki 1.33.0

Summary by 94rain

Already done by local sysops

Mohammed77779 (talkcontribs)

I want to deactivate the feature but that does not work ?!

94rain (talkcontribs)

It appears to be a problem that affects many wikis. For now, please find a local admin for help.

Someone might have already been investigating into it as mentioned in Topic:V07cu3uqwdg5ags1. I will try to find whether there are phab tasks related to this. If not, I will file one later.

I removed the redirects, but how can I delete the page, as I am not an admin?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

An admin has to literally delete all those pages. Don't you have a page to request deletions on your wiki?

George62tv (talkcontribs)

Ι requested the deletion of the pages, so I will inform you when they will be deleted.

Thanks again!

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Any update?

George62tv (talkcontribs)
Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

That's embarrassing!

George62tv (talkcontribs)

They deleted the rest of the pages.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Done! :)

George62tv (talkcontribs)

Thank you! :)

George62tv (talkcontribs)

I don't know if there is a bug or not, but for some reason my talk page is linked to the category "Pages for quick deletion" (Greek: Σελίδες για γρήγορη διαγραφή) and I can't remove it. Can you do something or only the admins in greek wikipedia can?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Have you tried to edit the description of your talk page?

George62tv (talkcontribs)

Yes, and I left it blank.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'll have a look at it on Monday. Sorry for the inconvenience.

George62tv (talkcontribs)

Ok, thanks!

George62tv (talkcontribs)

I disabled structured discussion (temporarily) because the admins deleted the page again, as they thought it was for deletion. So, before you have a look, tell me to enable it again.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Yes, please. It is very likely to solve the issue.

George62tv (talkcontribs)

Ok, I enabled it again.
