Wikitravel:Bug reports

From Wikitravel

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.

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)
