Extension needs updating

2 (talkcontribs)

This extension needs updating in order to work with Mediawiki versions 1.21+ and with newer versions of php/mysql. Lots of errors are received about deprecated function calls (if you can even get that far).

I have discussed some of the issues with the developer by email, but hit more once I get past those initial ones (Fatal call to wfLoadExtensionMessages mentioned already).

I just also tested, first with MW 1.28 and 1.25 with PHP7.0 but it didn’t work at all. Then with MW 1.20 with PHP5.6, and it worked with some changes:

  • commented the 6-7 occurences of wfLoadExtensionMessages, as said in other comments
  • added a comma (,) in the penultimate argument in WikiFarm_config.php (else blank page)
  • and MediaWiki had an issue probably with PHP5.6 in includes/MagicWords.php, I changed (?P<{$i}_{$name}> to (?P<i{$i}_{$name}> in getBaseRegex()

I explore the world of wiki farms (I created an extension to manage wiki farm configurations) and I find this extension quite useful (спасибо), but some work is needed to update it. If I can find some time, I can help in updating it.
