FreedomFighterSparrow updated subscribers of T106075: add tracking category for imagemap errors. add imagemap tag to the prop list for "Special:PagesWithProp".

@IKhitron, I did quite a bit of work on this, even though this isn't really relevant to me (I don't even use this extension myself). I fixed each and every one of @Tgr's comments since the last time you pushed for this. @eranroz did a +1 review, but I have no way of forcing someone to actually go through a +2 review. It also seems some work was done on this extension since then, which requires a proper rebase - I think I'm done for now.

@IKhitron, I'm still around. I just did not have the time to deal with @Tgr's review, as I did this fix as a distraction, and according to the best practices I could find (as in, copied everything from extension:Score, assuming what was good enough for one deployed extension would be good for another). I probably need to rollback the exceptions I added, and that's it.

  • Using api.php?action=query&list=users&ususers=my_username&usprop=groups retrieves the correct groups.

FreedomFighterSparrow closed T15625: Attach Template to existing page as Declined.

As robert mentioned many years ago, this seems out of scope for the extension. I'm considering creating another extension that will simplify doing this through WikiEditor, if one doesn't exist already.

Seems to be fine now. @Nemo_bis, please approve :-)

This bug should be closed as invalid; the original bug, T59732, should be a request to (operations project "operations/mediawiki-config"). It's not even a new request, just a typo fix. @Nemo_bis, @brion - know anybody we could ping?

So, it's a silly little thing - it's $wgDismissableSiteNoticeForAnons (an "s" at the end), but the config files (CommonSettings.php) have:

$wgDismissableSiteNoticeForAnon = true; // Bug 57732

No, that's great - thanks! I'll try to look into it.

I actually have no idea where to find *local* sitenotices. Could you point
me at one so I can try to debug?

Nemo, looking deeper into the CentralNotice code, I can't see anything that prevents anons from dismissing the notice. Could it be a specific banner that didn't have a close button added to it for anyone, anon or logged-in? Apparently this isn't automatic with CentralNotice, probably in order to allow styling it individually. Could you point to one such banner that you can't dismiss?

FreedomFighterSparrow added a comment to rOMWCf01ab49d6c41: Set $wgDismissableSiteNoticeForAnon to true.

As I mentioned in ! In T59732#1130711, this won't actually have an effect, because CentralNotice uses its own banner-hiding code.

Apparently, even though I was worried about the effect on Wikimedia sites, I needn't have - CentralNotice uses its own code (bannerController.js) for hiding banners. Makes sense, as it needs a more complex mechanism - like hiding banners of a specific group (like "donations"), and not all banners whatsoever.

Forgot to mention this in the commit... just released 2.0.0, which takes care of this.

It's actually an old configuration variable re-introduced...
BTW, doesn't CentralNotice have its own banner-hiding code, and therefore
this can't be tested on WM wikis?

The default is "off", to preserve the current Wikimedia behavior. I believe
enabling this on Wikimedia wikis is a separate request...

Coming soon... the patch described above works well enough, and I will soon commit a new version (after testing).
