Error creating Blog posts (not sure if this should go in social) [1.34]

Greetings.


So I've recently upgraded my mediawiki and have been overhauling a lof of the backend.

When trying to get the social extentions up again everything looks good until I do one of two things

1: if I load the extensions that I use-

wfLoadExtension( 'BlogPage' );

wfLoadExtension( 'Comments' );

wfLoadExtension( 'VoteNY' );


and I try to look at any of the blogs I previously made I get the following error:

Database error (page title)


A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.

Function: CommentsPage::getComments

If I try to make a new blog post I get:

This is related to the recent changes related to actor support in all social tools. The correct solution here is to upgrade your copy of SocialProfile (and/or any and all other social tools you have, e.g. BlogPage, Comments, VoteNY), to the latest (master) version and rerun maintenance/update.php, the MediaWiki core updater script, after doing that. Note that:

  1. you may want to make a backup of your database prior to doing this, just in case, for there are some scary internal changes
  2. currently social tools support only MediaWiki 1.34; older versions of MW are considered unsupported and newer ones may or may not work (but it doesn't matter because MW 1.35 hasn't been released yet)

Thanks for your reply. I uploaded the new extensions and ran the maintenance/update.php and the same errors are there.

I can only *see* old blog posts if I disable every social extension but BlogPage, and I can't post a new blog entry under any circumstances.

after disabling comments, I ran the updater again and there were no errors.


Still same same inability to create new blog posts though


EDIT2: After deleting the extensions and downloading the master versions and installing them again, everything worked save for creating a new blog entry. The error involved VOTENY, so I downloaded the 1.34 stable version (1a78517 of the VoteNY extension for MediaWiki REL1_34 ) After that, almost everything is good.

One small problem though, my old blog entries dont say who created them.

at the top, they simply say by created 14:50, March 2, 2019 , last edited 21:54, March 2, 2019

whereas the new blog post I just made say:

by Vapblack created 16:05, February 1, 2020

thanks for the help

Well, using the release branches (instead of master) of the social tools extensions is simply not supported, so you're on your own in that regard, I'm afraid. The existence of those branches is problematic because they are created automatically by the people handling MediaWiki releases, but I don't maintain them, so they are guaranteed to be outdated literally 100% of the time, so it's pure luck if they work or not.

Anyway, back to the original issue...

Seems like you've managed to find a tricky and annoying bug with the actor migration scripts: the Comments' migration scripts (and same for other social tools extensions, I'm afraid) don't handle a particular edge case at all. In this case, the edge case is "(anonymous) user has posted a comment (or comments) but has not performed any other actions on the wiki". The migration scripts incorrectly assume that there is a corresponding entry for every user in the actor table; but in this edge case, this isn't necessarily the case. The scripts should be able to identify these cases and create actor entries when those entries don't yet exist, but currently that is unfortunately not the case. I can't promise you a definitive ETA, but I'm hoping to get this fixed during March 2020 if not sooner.
