CPTDB Wiki Issues

Recommended Posts

Not a stupid question, just haven't had time to find out how to link it there. Got it linked now. ;)

You can access it at:

http://www.cptdb.ca/wiki

Please let me know if it's working or if you notice any issues! Thanks!

I noticed a few issues, but pictures speak better then words.

In this photo, you notice that whatever was in the left side above the navigation, is missing. Among other stuff that I have highlighted.

Also the <iimg> tag no longer works, which is shown in the Ottawa section where I have utilized it heavily. However if it isn't possible to allow the <iimg> tag to work again, I do have ways around it, as my other method seems to still work. Just it's a bit more complicated, and means I have to start redoing some pages.

Other then these issues, everything else is fine :)

I'm using Firefox and the Wiki still works fine for me (none of the issues in your image), except the <iimg> tags do not work for me either.

EDIT: Just noticed this now... for tables, the column headers at the top are now left justified instead of centred, and nothing I can do seems to fix it.

Thanks both of you for the thorough reports. I had to disable the iimg function as it was preventing the Wiki from running, but now that i've enabled it, it still doesn't seem to be working. I'll have to look into it further. I also noticed the center alignment went left for column headers so that's also on my list.

As for the misaligned buttons in M. Wright's photo, please refresh / hard refresh your browser and this should fix it. :)

Thanks!!

UPDATE: Bad news for the iimg, seems that the person who created it deleted the page. We might have to look at another extension such as http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ImageMap

M. Wright - do you know of any extensions that do the same thing as iimg? It doesn't work now, and it won't work if I upgrade the software either...

I split this topic off from the Q&A thread. Doing more investigating...

I think http://www.mediawiki...ension:ImageMap will work best, and it is also supported by Wikipedia. Unfortunately this means the iimg functinality will not work and will have to be changed.

The other extension we have is for the references:

http://www.mediawiki.../Extension:Cite

These should both work with the latest version of MediaWiki.

I want to proceed with the upgrade of MediaWiki while I still have time off from work, but it's probably going to be an interesting ride, so maybe within a few days.

Clicked the "Recent Changes" tab on the Wiki and this Database error came up that I've never seen before:

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "Interwiki::load". Database returned error "1267: Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '=' (localhost)".

Yes I noticed that as well tonight. Seems to be a problem with it trying to display recently edited pages such as Réseau de transport de la Capitale.

I am looking into it and have tried a few things to fix it but have not had success.

Everything else seems to be working OK, but please let me know if you notice something other than the Recent Changes page giving errors.

I think after more edits are made and the French gets pushed off the page, that the Recent Changes page will start working properly again.

Sounds to me from your evaluation that with the new Wiki version, anytime a page with French characters is edited, the Recent Changes page will crash. Would it be necessary, if you can't find a fix in the back-end coding, to rename pages to eliminate accent characters like é?

Sorry for my lack of replies, I was out of town since my last reply. Anyway I have noticed the upgrades and is going to correct it.

Also I noticed that if you have "class='Wikitable'" in a table now it will not show formatting that you have put on a table (eg. the borders). The easiest solution to this however is just remove it, there is no apparent need to have it. I am in the process of doing that in the Ottawa section.

A bit disappointed that we couldn't fix the iimg considering I used it very commonly in Ottawa. But I will survive. It's not the end of the world. Just going to take me a month or two to fix it up. I also find fixing stuff up is quite entertaining so this as well I do not mind working on.

Other then that, I am a happy camper. :)

Also on another topic, I came across a page that has a redirect that appears to exist for no real reason, and redirects to something completely different.

http://cptdb.ca/wiki...%27&redirect=no

This "York Region route 244" route page redirects to a "Regional Transit Service (in New York) Orion I" fleet page. I fail to see how these two are even closely related.

Redirected page:

http://cptdb.ca/wiki..._(NY)_1101-1129

According to the history it was "Redirect Fixer" who did this, which to me appears to be a bot.

I am not correcting this as I have no idea why this is like that, so I thought I'd report it instead in case there was a reason that I fail to see.

EDIT:

While looking further through the "Redirect Fixer" contribution page, the follow pages have similar problems:

http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=York_Region_Transit_route_11_%27Woodbridge%27&redirect=no

http://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=GO_Transit_2298-2317&redirect=no

Reverted the three edits, so everything should be good now, thanks for finding that weird error...

Not sure what brain the "Redirect Fixer" is using, it is not something I ever run manually, so maybe that could be monitored in the future.
