Do you run any public wikis? Todu 17:19, 9 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not yet but, I do run my company's corporate wiki and have done so for other companies I've worked at. I don't currently have a topic or need to start a wiki though that may change soon enough :)
Where are you located? --Kimon 17:47, 9 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I see. I'm watching this talk page so if you mention your future wiki here, I'll be sure to give it a visit. I'm located in Sweden, and you? Todu 22:01, 9 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you! I'll make sure to let you know if/when I set up my wiki or website. I'm in sunny Florida and lovin' the weather! --Kimon 22:22, 9 December 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That odd. I didn't get a notification about you changing this page. It seems some of the times the email doesn't reach me. It didn't even reach the spam box. Oh well..

BreadCrumb Extension: Default UserPref to on?[edit]

Thanks for the BreadCrumb (Kimon) extension, I like it! Is there any way to default the user preference to on? I'm still very new to MediaWiki, so my apologies if this is a dumb question. Thanks again! -- joe

MagicNoCache breaks my wiki[edit]

Hi, I installed and enabled MagicNoCache and as soon as it is enabled in LocalSettings.php, my entire wiki breaks with the error: "Fatal error: Call to a member function matchStartToEnd() on a non-object in /opt/mediawiki-1.13.0rc1/w/includes/parser/Parser.php on line 2784" Any ideas?

- I got the same problem when installing 1.15.1 now. I ended up commenting out the the accelartor lines in LocalSettings.php

MySQL error on UserPageViewTracker[edit]

MediaWiki version: MediaWiki 1.13.3 PHP version: PHP 5.2.8-0.dotdeb.1 (cgi-fcgi) MySQL version: MySQL 5.0.67-0.dotdeb.1 URL:

Hi Kimmon, excellent page type, just what I need. I followed the instructions on: All went well and a table user_page_views was created. It all went wrong when I ran "UserPageHits.sql" as prescribed. Upon doing so I received an error as follows:

#1142 - CREATE VIEW command denied to user 'bnl'@'localhost' for table 'user_page_hits'
The UserPageHits.sql is copy pasted as follows:
CREATE VIEW  `user_page_hits` AS 
SELECT `u`.`user_name` AS `user_name`,
       `u`.`user_real_name` AS `user_real_name`,
       `p`.`page_namespace` AS `page_namespace`,
       `p`.`page_title` AS `page_title`,
       `v`.`hits` AS `hits`,
       `v`.`last` AS `last` 
FROM ((`user` `u` JOIN `page` `p`) JOIN `user_page_views` `v`) 
WHERE ((`u`.`user_id` = `v`.`user_id`) AND (`p`.`page_id` = `v`.`page_id`)) 
ORDER BY `u`.`user_id`,`v`.`hits` DESC;

Can you help me out what I have to do differently?

I received feed back that my hosting firm does not support the "create view" command and does not allow to grant privileges. :-(

Is a work around possible?

Cheers, Menno


I think that the way your extensions compose SQL queries would allow Bobby Tables to cause immense damage. Have you considered SQL injection attacks? 12:02, 21 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User Snoop Permissions Issues[edit]

I figured I would let you know here about the problem I reported about User Snoop a couple of days ago. The extension is accessible to anyone who wants to via direct URL. Kitsufox 03:02, 12 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Are you still maintaining this extension?[edit]

I'm referring to the UserPageViewTracker extension. I'd like to improve on it -- I've made some improvements already and would like to publish them, I mean -- but I don't know the etiquette on this; don't want to go stepping on your toes or anything.

Special Page Title query & other functions[edit]

I just installed the UserPageViewTracker extension; It took me a while to figure out that <userpageviewtracker> is the title to access the page. Just wondering if its possible to clean up this and how to do so: I wold like it the show up in Special pages as User Page View Tracker or some such. I can edit the code but don't know where to do so. thanks. The extension seems to do what I want, If in fact it tracks hits to pages from any user of the site. Don't know yaet since I just installed it. The site requires registration to edit but is open to the public for viewing. Hope it tracks the public vierwes also. please advise me if that is not the case.
