Search error creating custom namespaces

ClageLG (talkcontribs)

Hello MarkAHershberger,

some months ago you requested debug logs from that Topic:Vbps68wp2h51ifg6, but received no answer for almost half a year. But the problem still exists. In addition to the opener of the thread, there are currently two people facing this problem. I am not enough expert in SQL but I can provide you with all kinds of debug output needed. Like the thread opener we have also created a custom namespace, but the outdated index of the search engine was realized later. Therefore I can not clearly state a causal connection. Looking at the SQL statements in the debug output of updateSearchIndex.php the SELECT statement used for LOCK TABLES is completely the same as the one used afterwards causing the <code>Error: 1100 Table 'temp_rev_comment' was not locked with LOCK TABLES</code>. Any help would be very welcome.

Any reason why no one will help me out with my LdapAUth questions?

Extension:HitCounter in mediawiki 1.28.0 Database Error 1054

Xk casper (talkcontribs)

If you setup the HitCounter extension version 1.28.0 it will show up the error 1054 like:

Query: SELECT page_namespace,page_title FROM `page` WHERE page_namespace = '0' AND page_is_redirect = '0' ORDER BY page_counter DESC LIMIT 6 Function: DynamicPageListHooks::renderDynamicPageList Error: 1054 Unknown column 'page_counter' in 'order clause' (localhost)

After add the code:

    // process the query,change fields into page and hit_counter by casper 2017.01.20
    if($orderMethod == 'popularity'){
        $tables[] = 'hit_counter';//
        $join["hit_counter"] = array( 'LEFT JOIN','page.page_id=hit_counter.page_id' );
        $res = $dbr->select( $tables, $fields, $where, __METHOD__, $options, $join );
    } else{
        $res = $dbr->select( $tables, $fields, $where, __METHOD__, $options, $join );

This problem will be solved。

Hi Mark, I just tried to sign up for the MW stakeholder wiki. When I try to log in it wants to do something with my google account, but then tells me that account is not authorized. Shouldn't I be able to log in with my mediawiki account? Or how would I become authorized? The only way suggested to sign up for meetings requires being logged in.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

email me your google account and I'll authorize it. You could also request an invite so it the meeting would be on your calendar.

Tenbergen (talkcontribs)

That would solve the problem for me, but how would someone get themselves invited who doesn't happen to know you are the guy to talk to? Isn't this supposed to be outreach, so shouldn't this be as easy as possible?

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

Thanks for pointing this out. I'll work with the other people in #mwstake to make it more accessible.

How can I download MediaWiki? I want to make a wiki foundation like WMF. Is that okay?

Did you ever find a workaround to the "page already exists" problem, or did you roll back to a previous version? Thanks.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

Could you point me to the page already exists problem? I have only a very vague recollection of what you're talking about.

Now I'm embarrassed; you weren't the one looking for a workaround.

Greetings. Previously you mentioned [] you were working on something to allow non-ucfirst usernames. It seems to me that users/User.php simply disallows this, but without any explicity need for it. I would propose a simple patch to User.php to not do ucFirst (two functions) if wgCapitalLinks is false and that the USER namespace is not explicitly whitelisted as an exclusion. But are there hidden internal dependencies in mediawiki on a cap-first username? What about well-known extensions? (For instance, PluggableSSO/PluggableSSOAuth:getcanonicalName())
