The [[Special:Disambiguations|Disambiguation pages special page]] requires that [[Wikitravel:Disambiguation pages|disambiguation pages]] have [[Template:Disambig]] on them rather than [[Template:Disamb]] (our standard). [[Template:Disambig]] is empty and a deleted page (twice). Can the target template name be changed so the special page works correctly? I do not like the other alternative of changing all the disambiguation page templates. -- [[User:Huttite|Huttite]] 19:54, 27 July 2006 (EDT)

:I tried creating that template a while back as a test to see if it could de-orphan the disambig pages without having to manually index each one, but a couple admins freaked out over the fact that I'd created a redundant template, so I gave up on it.  (I figure a bot could update the existing pages without too much effort or disruption.) - [[User:TVerBeek|Todd VerBeek]] 20:08, 27 July 2006 (EDT)

::It actually just needed a change in the [[Mediawiki:disambiguationspage]] file. Typically if there's a "magic word" like this -- a special string like "Template:disambig" -- you should look in [[Special:Allmessages]] to see if the string exists there.
+
::One problem I see is that [[:Template:disamb]] links to [[Wikitravel:Disambiguation pages]], which in turn links to [[:Template:disamb]], so there's kind of a loop. We may want to think about breaking that up. --[[User:Evan|Evan]] 20:43, 27 July 2006 (EDT)

This is the old page for bug reports for the Wikitravel installation of Mediawiki 1.6.8 (see Special:Version). Bugs that have been verified as fixed already are under Wikitravel:Fixed bugs. For older bug reports, see the Wikitravel:bug report archives. For new ideas, try Wikitravel:Feature requests.

New bugs should be reported on the Technical requests page on Wikitravel Shared.

Contents

Change contents of "url" section of listings tags to "web" or "website"

For Listings, change the outward link to a stock phrase (web or website) or (better) an auto-numbered link. --Evan 16:03, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

Get rid of extra br after listings tags

For Listings, an extra <br/> tag appears at the end of each listing. It would be good to get rid of these. --Evan 16:03, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

Change Special:Export output so it includes real names

The export format for MediaWiki doesn't export users' real names, and it would be nice for downstream publishers if it did. --Evan 16:10, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

Add "email this user" on client side, if user is logged in

The email this user link doesn't always show up on user pages, since it's only show for logged-in users. IWBNI it were added on the client-side with Javascript, so that if you're logged in you always see this link. --Evan 16:10, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

TOC takes up too much space

The table of contents in a page makes a lot of whitespace right at the beginning of an article (see http://evan.prodromou.name/images/San_Diego.png for an example). It would be nice to move it to the left nav area or to a new nav area on the right side of the screen. See Wikitravel talk:Table of contents location for more discussion on the issue.

It would be nice to make this optional per-language version. For example, de: users seem really opposed to it and are happy with other solutions for working around the whitespace problem. --Evan 16:41, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

There's now a review version up for consideration. It's in very raw form and I'm still testing it, but it's worth looking at. Compare: http://wikitravel.org/review/San_Diego. --Evan 13:03, 29 June 2006 (EDT)

Today's log on ja:

The 'Today's Log' (今日のログ) link in the Japanese navbar links to "Wikitravel:2006年6月18日 (日)", whereas previous entries used just "Wikitravel:{{CURRENTYEAR}}年{{CURRENTMONTHNAME}}{{CURRENTDAY}}日". Could the rather useless weekday be stripped off? Jpatokal 23:18, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

Yes it could! It's actually configurable with a MediaWiki: format article, ja:MediaWiki:Logbooktitle. I'll take a poke at it, but you should look at Wikitravel:27 April 2006 for details on how it works. --Evan 23:28, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

Raw signature

In the Preferences page, you can set a nickname and there is a box to check if you want a "raw signature." Every time I check the box, it says my preferences were saved but it's cleared again. Is this feature disabled? If it is, it would be better if the box didn't appear at all, or at least mention on User preferences help that the box doesn't work. It's not a big deal but if I want a custom formatting for my signature, I have to type it myself now. Philbert2.71828 14:47, 23 June 2006 (EDT)

Yeah, that's a bug; raw signatures are being forced to off for everyone because of caching, but it doesn't really affect caching, so I figure it should be removed. Thanks for the report. --Evan 18:08, 23 June 2006 (EDT)

Timezone (it)

We've had some problems on the Wiktionary:it. The default timezone was EDT, non good for Italy. It has now been changed to CEST, and all seem to work really better. BUT: if I am logged off, and watch the "Recent changes" page, I see allthing shifted: +2 hours. If something has been done at 20:31, it looks like it has been done at 22:31. When I log in, no problem, 20:31. If something has been done 10 minutes ago, it looks like it will be done in 1 hour and 50 minutes! (only when I'm logged off). Is there some way to correct this time too? Dennis 18:21, 30 June 2006 (EDT)

I'll take a look. Since we changed the default timezone, you might need to go to the preferences page and re-set your timezone (which is stored as an offset from the default, not as an absolute value. --Evan 12:46, 1 July 2006 (EDT)

isIn failure on shared

I'm trying to set up the isIn for Cote d'Ivoire on shared (see Image:LocationCotedIvoire.png), but the apostrophe causes problems, even if escaped. The error is:

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 "getCategories". MySQL returned error "1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Ivoire')' at line 1 (wikidb.internetbrands.com)".

Not shown as logged in if JS is turned off

If JavaScript is turned off in your browser, the "personal links" in the upper right-hand corner don't show your name and talk page. (This is because of our server-side caching -- everyone's reading the same HTML pages, slightly decorated on the client side by JavaScript.) We should probably have some text to this effect on Special:Userlogin. --Evan 22:23, 25 July 2006 (EDT)


nl's main page

I have just dropped by the Main page of Dutch Wikitravel (nl:Hoofdpagina) and it's apparently showing the page's printable version instead of the "normal" version. Ricardo (Rmx) 22:25, 30 July 2006 (EDT)

Thanks for the heads up... I just took a look and all the other language versions seem fine, as well as all the other pages in nl... weirdness. Maj 00:11, 31 July 2006 (EDT)
How's it look now? It didn't look like it should have two minutes ago, but it looks perfectly fine in my browser now. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 00:38, 31 July 2006 (EDT)
Err, it looks fine now... not that that makes it any less weird, but I guess I can go to sleep now. Maj 00:40, 31 July 2006 (EDT)
Did you do anything? The only I thing that I did was log in, went to the recent changes page attempted a revert, then the main page was showing properly so I took the opportunity to purge the cache. If that makes any sense - it doesn't to me. -- Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 00:45, 31 July 2006 (EDT)
Just thought I'd let you know that I had the exact same problem in the en version a second ago. I deleted the temporary internet files and it refreshed the page and it's fine now... Don't know if theres something up with that, but I thought Id let you all know about it. -- Tim 04:51, 8 August 2006 (EDT)

Sorry! We could not process your edit

Whenever I try to edit, I get an error message saying

Sorry! We could not process your edit due to a loss of session data. Please try again. If it still doesn't work, try logging out and logging back in.

This does not stop me from editing or saving. I have set the "Show preview before edit box" option in my preferences, so it shows me a preview when I edit anything. Others might not see the same error. — Ravikiran 04:31, 31 July 2006 (EDT)

That usually happens when you've taken a long time between starting an edit and saving it. I'm not sure why it's there, but I'm sure there's a good reason for it. B-) Is it happening even for very short edits? --Evan 23:37, 11 August 2006 (EDT)

"Protect" and "Delete" tag

Some of my authorized functions as an administrator (ja:) seems malfunctioning. When I am trying to use the "Protect" function and click the tag, the name of the article changes to a garbage character (e.g. "釜ヶ崎" to "釜ヶ崁Eaction=protect"), and can not protect the article. And this is often the case with "Delete" function. Would you check the systems and correct them? Shoestring 23:14, 11 August 2006 (EDT)

(Addition) The article which has some namespace (such as Help:編集の仕方) is also undeletable. In order to avoid further vandalism, I tried to protect this article temporary and click the "Protect" tug of this article. It seemed to work, but actually the Main page had protected instead.--Shoestring 20:37, 12 August 2006 (EDT)

Oddly enough my functions work fine. I think Shoestring has had the same problem ever since the database conversion thingy way back... Jpatokal 03:01, 12 August 2006 (EDT)
I was just able to do it, too. It's not really that useful if Shoestring can't do it, though. Since those tabs are built by JavaScript on the client side, I assume that there's some browser incompatibility at work. So I can test with your browser, Shoestring, can you tell me which one it is? --Evan 20:47, 12 August 2006 (EDT)
Sorry but I don't know much about the technology, so I have no idea whether I can answer your question properly. Browser? My Internet browser is quite common..., the Microsoft Internet Explorer (probably 6, not at least 7). And the version of Java is JRE 1.5.0_06 (property says so). Umm, but I don't think its not enough..., what kind of information do I have to give you? --Shoestring 23:39, 12 August 2006 (EDT)
