Patch merged, I guess this can be closed
I came across another one: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/File:Mscatselect_1.jpg

In fact, Special:Statistics can count a number lower than the largest revision ID. If I move a page leaving a redirect, the number of edits is incremented by 1 but the number of revisions is incremented by 2 (the row in the page for the move, and the row on the redirect page). On the other hand, log actions that don't create new revisions, like deleting or restoring a page, each add 1 to the "number of edits of the wiki".

If you have the XML dump, you can use grep, gawk or something to count the number of revisions present on the XML, and compare with the dump (it should be the same)

grabLogs (and the grabbers suite in general) expects an initial empty database and to mirror everything using the same IDs on both wikis. I'm not against making this configurable, but it should be the opposite: only import them with user id = 0 if explicitly requested.

Looks like easy according to T26575#1746030

Maybe if we're afraid of too many links next to each header, we can consider to have only two: the edit link, and a "more..." link, that when clicked could expand to a list of actions (link to that section, share, copy link for use on an edit...). Even the edit link can be made expandible if we have the dual edit link (wikitext edit, visual editor edit). Just an idea.

With respect to the files I could change the name, upload a new version, create a new one, delete, but the transfer of files to a different namespace I could not do it because it returns the message: "Unable to move the file to a space of names that is not for files. ", that still do not know how to solve, reason why I can not assure that that test works.

Another instance of this error on 1.32: Topic:Uvchvjq4moxr5prh

The debug log should be used to capture the events when you get the error. The error for you happens when undeleting a page. However, the log you posted is capturing a page view of the "Main_Page".

In addition to this externally-shareable link, I think it would be great to also have a wikilink.
i.e. Provide two links the users can copy:1. [https://example.com/wiki/Example_page#Example_section] 2. [[Example_page#Example_section]]

So what's going to happen to these null revisions? Will they just get deleted? What happens if the move is reversed; should those deleted null revisions get automatically restored, or should a sysop have to come along and restore them?

I've done some edits and it seems to work fine. Many thanks!

Ok, I've tried a new 1.32 install and I'm able to reproduce the problem.

/mw-config/index.php?page=Upgrade should be accessed only when an existing MediaWiki database exists, but you said that "there's no LocalSettings.php because it's a new installation". Can you clarify what steps you did on the install wizard to get to that page?

In fact, I have ExternalStore on my wiki configured, but AbuseFilter stores the reference to the external store to the text table. This method wipes the reference to it on the text table, but doesn't remove the external store data (T213480)

This happened at home (no proxy, etc. Normal ADSL). I'm using Firefox on linux (OpenSUSE). When this happened (page taking too long to actually display anything), I copied the URL that was causing the problem and tried to get it with curl on command line, which are the pastes attached to the bug.

Ok, I wrongly assumed that the user who asked for help in my talk page, was using a real example from other pages where this happened, but it appears not. Sorry for the confusion.
I verified that this would fix the problem by opening https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%84gyptische_Hieroglyphen in Firefox and adding the above CSS rule -- it fixes the rendering to the desired version.

Looks like Esander's change is not the problem here. Even after returning the CSS, it doesn't display on the same line. Looking at the rendered HTML, hieroglyphs are rendered on a table that's outside of the paragraph text (paragraph <p></p> is closed before the hieroglyph).

I don't think this should be done. A 404 means the website is no longer there, but a 500 could be a temporary error. Maybe reduce the frequency drastically (from 6 hours to 1 week?)

Interesting...okay, so something like this might make more sense, however:
- in some cases the panel itself will need to be scroll-able (assuming we don't want to make it taller - I imagine this would frustrate people)
- in most(?) cases the page itself will also be scroll-able. It does seem like we could remove the Wikipedia page footer from the diff views so at least shorter diffs don't result in a scroll-able page.

Oh, that patch landed on the 1.31 branch, it's not present on 1.30. I'm using the 1.31 branch on MediaWiki 1.30 without problems, it's safe to upgrade this extension.
What version of LinkSuggest are you using? This was fixed on rELISa72ee43c41e98fedb510bbad6262f5a2d28ebfb0. Try using the master version of the extension.

I'm going to re-propose this:

Please at least add a class to these links. Currently I would like to use a custom css style on them and I don't see how I can.
You should be able to use the autocomment class once my first patch is deployed. Given the summary /* External links */ removed bogus entries, the HTML will look like:
<span dir="auto"><span class="autocomment"><a href="#External_links">→External links</a>: </span> removed bogus entries</span>.
Dec 1 2018
An option would be to just change the style. But for this, please make this section link have it's own CSS class, to allow both MediaWiki and users to style it differently than other links.

Ugh, just found this problem. It wasn't breaking, but nukePage was taking a lot to delete one single page, and looked at the source code to see why.
I'm not sure what we should be doing about nested links, do you have any suggestions on how those should be handled?
We should just remove them from HTML markup, in my opinion.

Adding /* Header with a [[Help:Links|link]] */ to a summary gives funny results

We encounter a new error in MW 1.31.
The active user number droped from 1.3k to 50 after php /var/www/wiki/maintenance/rebuildall.php .
Neither php maintenance/initStats.php --active --update nor php maintenance/UpdateSpecialPages.php fix the number count error. However, the Special:ActiveUsers page do show all 1.3k editors' name at the same time.
$wgMiserMode = false / true doesn't seem to affect the active users number anymore this time. It's always 50.

This won't work for HTTP caching.

Note that the change you mentioned (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/445014) does remove the MFResourceLoaderParsedMessageModule class, which is already missing in your installation. This means it's either backported already, or you downloaded master instead of REL1_31

Also, the counts on the revision table may also give higher results, because page moves count as 2 (one revision on the source page, and another revision on the target page). Ideally this extension should use a table with counts for each namespace (see also T173775)

Note that an undo may also be desirable for your own edits, in case you make an edit and then you realize something went very wrong.

I'm confused. Deployment of wmf.22 is supposed to happen today https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.32/Roadmap but it hasn't happened yet on mediawiki.org, which is on .20, but the problem seems to happen since today.
Sep 17 2018
There's now MediaWiki:Loginprompt. I'm boldly closing this.
Aug 27 2018
Hmmm, I have to investigate. I can't reproduce this on the test install. Closing as invalid for now

If fixing this is not quick and easy, it may be worth doing T158620

The todo CHECKME/FIXME is right. The message contains a $1 parameter that isn't substituted, which means strpos will not find anything. gj. The message should substitute the parameter and it should match (using a simple equality comparision). There's another flaw, however: It updates the stats for the user performing the edit. However, what if the blog is updated by a different user which adds its own category?
Aug 22 2018
I think this has been fixed somehow (or maybe because the feature that caused the error has been disabled in rEBLO08eb64a9a), because in my tests I haven't encountered this problem yet.
I don't think this is a duplicate, since users may prefer to receive plain text emails.

This patch is obsolete. See F25204900 instead
Updated patch to account for no match found (looks like the previous one was only visible for me?)
Technical documentation may be better, but user documentation is inexistent.

Okay, I tested on a wiki I though it was on 1.31, but no. It was on 1.30.
Nope, I am not using Tidy. Still reproducible on 1.30 and 1.31.
