Dialogs broken when mwEmbed is enabled
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Using the dialogs on current wikipedia installations results in the following error (Search and replace and insert link):

TypeError: Result of expression '$('<div />').attr('id',module.id).html(module.html).data('context',context).appendTo($('body')).each(module.init).dialog' [undefined] is not a function.

Occurs with Safari 5, Chrome, and Opera 10 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard, but works on FF4.

Here's what I was able to figure out so far:

Only occurs when both Twinkle and mwEmbed gadgets are enabled. Once they are enabled, it seems like jquery ui is not loaded on the edit page.

This is fixed now for me. mwEmbed + Twinkle + dialogs seems to work.

Michael, can such mwEmbed bug be closed (isn't it superseded?)?

(In reply to comment #9)

We should disable the mwEmbed gadget now that Timed media handler is being
enabled.

Can you please do so on en.wiki, Commons and any other wiki using it by disabling/blanking it then? (You have global editinterface rights.)

I had already removed it from en.wp and commons a while ago. Not sure if it is used anywhere else.

WONTFIXing as we slowly get rid of mwEmbed anyway.
Plus no clear steps to reproduce nowadays...
