robkam added a comment to T176787: Automatic infobox implementation.

Somehow infobox data should be able to auto-populate navboxes and table templates in article pages.

I would except I can't because the wiki is on Miraheze wiki farm with CentralAuth and UserMerge extension is disallowed.

That the user list/wiki has extraneous crud. Even with abuse filter blocking the actual user page posts.

Entirely killing it (including the 1st) would be the better option. However T160446 is declined and closed.

robkam added a comment to T182504: Templates not bundled with MediaWiki.

The first question is "Which underlying problem do you try to solve by importing MediaWiki:Common.css from some other website into your wiki site?"

The underlying problem is lack of templates, some of which require MediaWiki:Common.css.

Please can't this be simplified in order to get some sort of repository available ASAP!?

It looks like the WMF preferred method for achieving this is via Shadow namespaces. See T91162

On this wiki, a user page gets created along with the new user account - done by extension confirm account. If I manually delete the user page first, then mege and delete works.

This is with User Merge and Delete 1.9.0 (f1d6d58) from https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/176980

I've also tried the patch for usermerge (in version it shows as 1.9.0 (f1d6d58)) but the tick in preferences still has no effect.

Dec 5 2014, 9:40 AM · MediaWiki-extensions-CollapsibleVector
robkam added a comment to T76310: Fatal error in MergeUser.php.

It's not related to CollapsibleVector. The wiki also uses extension ConfirmAccount. When the user account is created so is a user page. Using user merge with delete selected 1.9.0 gives "Fatal error: Function name must be a string in ..../w/extensions/UserMerge/MergeUser.php". But if the user page is first deleted merge and delete then functions okay.

It's the same with 0.1.3. Ticked or unticked, the sidebar still has items collapsible.
