(no subject)

Is http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php/Production_Setup:_Webserver current? I mean both the page in general, and specifically the
sudo dpkg -i cvs/dw-private/debs/*.deb
bit, since there's no longer a cvs dir.

[RFD] "Support Ninja" page no longer useful, to be deleted/kept for historical reasons?

It seems to me that http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php/Support_Ninja has outlived its usefulness. The Twitter account linked from it appears to have changed purpose.

What should be done with it?

Wiki email to @dreamwidth.org still not working after 1 month

Any chance that this can be fixed soon? There was some discussion of causes and a possible remedy at https://dw-wiki.dreamwidth.org/13307.html?thread=54523#cmt54523 .

Unable to log in using OpenID

I'm currently unable to log in to the DW wiki using OpenID. It looks like my OpenID URL, http://pauamma.dreamwidth.org/ or https://pauamma.dreamwidth.org/ (normally use the former, tried the latter as well just in case) became disconnected from my wiki username, which was Pauamma. When I click on the "Log in / create account with OpenID" button, I'm not logged in as used to be the case, but presented with a wiki special page that apparently wants me to confirm my username (and password? but I don't have a password, because OpenID). Clicking the "Log in / create account with OpenID" button (present on that page as well) leads me to http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php/Special:OpenIDLogin/ChooseName which contains nothing of use, whether I enter a password or leave that field empty. I also tried a password reset email, but got no email after 23 hours. (Although something must have happened, because when I try again, I get an "A password reset email has already been sent, within the last 24 hours." error message.)

Any way I can log in?

Setting up dw-free and dw-nonfree

The instructions on setting up dw-nonfree (and possibly in other places) use the --set-upstream flag. Using those instructions gives the message:

The --set-upstream flag is deprecated and will be removed. Consider using --track or --set-upstream-to

Someone more familiar with git tell me what I should be editing those instructions to so's not to break anything? Cheers!

Setting up the suggestions community

In case you ever want to do anything relating to the Make a suggestion page on a Dreamhack, I've recently gone through the process and written it up.

There are a few bits that are decidedly more hacky than I'd like, so it's definitely a thing that would benefit from others looking it over and making improvements, but it'll hopefully save other folk needing to go Perl diving for the details.

Need a page looked over from a styles perspective

One of the things I did today was get rid of as many obsolete references to Mercurial as I could. Consequently I have rewritten Working on a Styles Bug despite... never having worked on a styles bug, so it would be great if styles folk (or people who know the workflow) could have a quick look over it and say if it seems reasonable. Cheers!

Setting an email address on my OpenID DW wiki account

So I have a DW wiki account named Pauamma (userid 14), which I log into using OpenID, and for which I'd like to set the email address to pauamma@dreamwidth.org, so I can get emailed when pages on my watchlist change. However:

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ChangeEmail&returnto=Special%3APreferences wants me to enter my current password, which I don't know (assuming I even have one) because OpenID.

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ChangePassword&returnto=Special%3APreferences (which I tried next) also wants to know my current password.

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:PasswordReset&returnto=Special%3APreferences doesn't, but complains that I don't have an email address set.

Any way out of that chicken-and-egg problem?

Wiki updates

I've just written a very short guide to getting Support Board and privs set up on a 'hack (the information was all previously available but was a bit scattered). Please do let me know if you think there's information missing (or edit yourself if you have privs).

I've made some minor tweaks to Privileges. It is still marked as in-need-of-update and does not accurately reflect the full set of available privs. I'm happy to edit all of them in but would like input on how to adapt existing categories to this end :-)

Issue with Syntax Highlighter

On this page in particular:

http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Newbie_Guide:_How_to_Patch_Styles_and_Themes

Something on line 4531 is really really broken. Alas!

Account creation wackiness

One of our own reports:

if I don't put in anything in the "link to existing account" boxes and click login/create account, I get: "Fatal error: Call to a member function checkPassword() on a non-object in /var/www/wiki/extensions/OpenID/SpecialOpenIDLogin.body.php on line 898"

So it looks like OpenID account creation may be horked. Possibly also regular account creation.

Error message from the wiki engine?

I'm getting a bunch of repeats of
Notice: Undefined offset: 0 in /var/www/wiki/extensions/SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi/geshi/geshi.php on line 4531 Notice: Undefined offset: 4 in /var/www/wiki/extensions/SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi/geshi/geshi.php on line 4531
when viewing http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php/Newbie_Guide:_How_to_Patch_Styles_and_Themes, and I suspect, a number of other pages. (This is the only page so far for which the messages remain visible after the page itself displays, but I noticed transient messages on other pages that may be the same.) Is it just me, or is anyone else getting those or similar messages?

Wiki update: 1.23.0

Hey folks! Earlier this month a new MediaWiki version dropped, so it is time to upgrade the wiki again. You might see some downtime today as I do this, and please let me know what weird stuff happens! (I do realize that the S2 highlighting isn't working properly right now but haven't figured out quite *why* yet.)

Edit: Okay, the wiki has been upgraded to the latest version.
