Kghbln added a comment to T192575: `asort()` and `array_unique()` expects parameter 1 to be array, object given in "PF_ValuesUtils.php".

Affirmative, removing "values from namespace=" makes the issue go away while "values from category=" and "values=" are still in there.

Works perfect. I am so happy! Probably I tried to use "int" since this is the one for wiki pages. Sidebar is indeed special in a lot of ways.

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

I just tested on a fresh MW 1.27.4 and apparently the situation is worse with latest master of Lockdown than with REL1_27. Now the first edit to a page fails and only after reloading the browser window with F5 it is possible to edit. This starts from the beginning for every page I access. So it looks to me that Lockdown is not aware at the beginning of the user groups and thus blocks. With REL1_27 I can at least edit as long as no API action is involved.

@Aklapper Thanks to the info about this page. Did not know that existed. In this case I am not absolutely sure who to ask either. I guess Discovery appears the most appropriate.

No worries. It sounded like you had tried it. If it does not work either we have proof that we are currently restricted to wikitext as the page content model.

So if the page content model is CSS, JavaScript, json or plaintext (all four provided by MediaWiki core) you do not observe this behavior?

Thanks for trying. It may very well be that this is not a bug but a feature request. I guess we are not in the hands of @Malvineous

Thanks a lot. So you are hopping from REL to REL which is perfectly fine. Could you try upgrading MassEditRegex to the latest version 8.3.0 and verify that the issue is still around? I do not expect a change in behavior still we should make sure that the issue is still around.
