After this toolbar was removed MediaWiki core will come without any editing interface. An idea I do not really fancy. Isn't it time to merge WikiEditor into core now that it was stripped from unmaintainable code? Yeah, it is to easy to install and invoke WikiEdior but this is not my point.

Kghbln added a comment to T148582: Lockdown blocks extensions relying on API interaction.

No, since sandbox is a public wiki. The docu explicitly states not to do this. However I now adapted the way how permissions are set as detailed in method 2.2 but this did not help (It does in my private wiki setups without having Lockdown present). Hmm, so in the end Lockdown and VisualEditor do not mix on public wikis? Hopefully this does at least on private wikis which will be the more common use case.

This is really interesting. We use this extension on quite a lot MediaWiki REL1_27 installations. There were no API related issues. We use REL1_27 branch of Lockdown.

Kghbln added a comment to T148582: Lockdown blocks extensions relying on API interaction.

So this looks like another issue. Actually this very issue was resolved but by doing so a couple of new issues were introduced. This extension is now completely broken for MW 1.27, 1.28, 1.29, 1.30 and 1.31. I am really in panic and at the same time unable to contribute code to help the cause. If it cannot be fixed we should archive the extension and delete the code since it does not make sense to me to keep a zombie for another couple of years of brokenness. A bit sad since it used to be among the ten most popular extensions to MediaWiki, so the need for it seems to be present.

So the holdup for refactoring this extension is the uncertainty of the number of users of the Arrays extension using a configuration parameter which was intended to ease the transition to a newer version which was introduced seven or eight years ago? As far as I am concerned there was plenty of time to migrate and my suggestion is to ditch this. Tough titties for those who did not migrate yet I'd say. :)

Do not forget the #arraymaptemplate parser function provided by the PageForms extension. Hmm, usually people using Arrays will most likely also have PageForms installed and vice versa. I personally think it will be great if this extension sees refactoring, maintenance etc. Adding new parser functions which are already provided by other extensions is probably unnecessarily complicating things at this point. I think this will be a second step if at all after the groundwork was done.

The issue is that we link to the master version of the "RELEASE-NOTES-1.31" file all over MediaWiki.org so the end user will always see "THIS IS NOT A RELEASE YET!". Perhaps it is just a matter of creating a better logic by directing the link to the latest release tag of the respective branch to avoid this.

@matmarex My thanks go to you for fixing this! It is much better to forget about referencing a bug than not working on a bug at all. :)

Kghbln added a comment to T32087: Preferences - Date format - display standard date format.

It appears to be a pretty big issue to actually display the format standardly used as it is done for all other alternative options, e.g. like 10:55, 30. Jan. 2017 (Standard) or whatever the standard formatting actually looks like. I still do not know. Keeping fingers crossed.

Kghbln closed T166738: Error "Class 'MWTimestamp' not found" when upgrading to MW 1.29.0-rc.0 as Resolved.

Well, I am now on MW 1.31.0 via 1.30.0 and 1.29.0 and I no longer have this issue during upgrades. Thank you for fixing this whoever did this.

I do not know when this happened and who authored the fix but on MW 1.31.0 and later (probably in earlier branches, too) this issue is no longer present for MonoBook.

Kghbln closed T138763: "HostStats" extension / special page "Special:HostStats" no longer added to "wiki" group on special page "Special:SpecialPages" as Resolved.

Must have been a bug with MW 1.27 and later. Howerver on MW 1.31 it shows up as expected again.

Kghbln added a comment to T196864: Revisions have disappeared since migration to WMF hosting.

I no longer remember when exactly the switch happened but we hardly had any activity during the past month. I suggest to export all pages that there edited and created by regular users, not bots, with all revisions. Move the working database in again in a second step and import the previously exported pages in a third step. Only one user would need to register again which I think is acceptable.

Why did you cross nikext? It's still available, the vcs link just needs updating.

There is the MyVariables extension around which provides the {{USERLANGUAGECODE}} variable. This is only available for third party instances though.

@DeepBlue This is a pretty bad issue as it affects many pages.
