This may not be a new issue but may be related to the cu_away_new.sql comments.
I installed correctly, putting the extension folder in with the extensions and added the following to my LocalSettings.php:
require_once "$IP/extensions/MediaWikiChat/MediaWikiChat.php"; $wgChatKicks = true; $wgChatSocialAvatars = true; $wgChatRichMessages = true; $wgChatUseStyleAttribute = true; $wgChatSidebarPortlet = true; $wgChatLinkUsernames = false; $wgChatMeCommand = false; $wgChatMaxMessageLength = 1000;
When you visit Special:chat you will see that it does not show any users or my text.
In Chrome, in the console I see this:
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'users' of undefined.
My cu_away_new.sql file reads:
ALTER TABLE /*_*/chat_users MODIFY cu_away binary(12)
Are there any extensions I should have that are needed for this to work or is there a way to start over and install it correctly? I started off with the update.php but there was an error associated with the cu_away_new.sql. I changed this file to incorporate the new text and then ran it again and the error during update.php did not occur this time but the results were the same.
