Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T213478: purgeRedundantText: Potential data loss.

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)

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T213030: load.php URL hanging sometimes.

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.

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).

Interesting...okay, so something like this might make more sense, however:

  1. 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)
  2. 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.

    *I'm showing the scroll bars to remind us of what the current result would be

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>.

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.

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)

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?

Ciencia_Al_Poder claimed T201698: blog-by-user-category message can potentially inject arbitrary strings and parameters when passed to preg_match_all.

I've tested setting blog-by-user-category to end in /e#, and it displays a PHP Warning: preg_match_all(): Unknown modifier '#'. That means the PCRE comment character isn't taken as a comment when present in the modifiers section of the regexp, making it not exploitable (unless a more ancient PHP version allows for that).

Ciencia_Al_Poder updated subscribers of T201698: blog-by-user-category message can potentially inject arbitrary strings and parameters when passed to preg_match_all.

Maybe the message should be passed through preg_quote, and then replace $1 (without spaces) with (.*). Sadly I have no time now to test this :( Maybe in a couple of days...

With the previous patch, refreshLinks does not fatal anymore. It should be fixed now

Looks like this could be fixed by gerrit change 449761. The code path is not the same, but maybe the code was reorganized some time ago...

Ciencia_Al_Poder claimed T200911: Renaming a Blog page causes a fatal when running jobs.

This actually is a fault of the Comments extension (incidentally, blogs have comments 😁). I'm not sure why this happens when the blog page is renamed, and not otherwise, though, although using $wgOut can be the source of a lot of problems.

Okay, I was looking for the $wgUserProfileDisplay['articles'] on the SocialProfile extension... Also, I forgot to run jobs, so the user category wasn't populated and hence nothing was displayed.

Okay, my comment was about the T45646#4447303 idea, which would be a major breakage in legal terms. Gerrit changeset 449626 would be fine, though, if it doesn't follow the path of renaming system messages.

Does a special page exists which lists all blog pages by author? I can't find it. Ideally, this shouldn't be a magic word, but an includable special page. The special page on its own could be linked from the social profile (see T146588)

You can try running populateRevisionSha1.php. I though it may not generate it for deleted revisions, that will have this issue on undeletion, but apparently it also takes cares of deleted revisions, so there shouldn't be any case missing. This script should have been run automatically on upgrade when the field was added.
