Wikitravel:Old bug reports
This page is for reporting bugs in the MediaWiki software we use for Wikitravel, or for the way we have it installed.
If you think you have a good idea for a new feature in Wikitravel, please note it on the feature requests page.
Email in preferences
When I edit my preferences, it never shows my e-mail. This causes two smallish problems. First, I can never quite tell what my e-mail is set to here (I have more than one account) and second, I think that if I change something else on my preferences and "save", then my e-mail address gets set to nothing in the DB. Does anybody else have this problem? If not, what am I doing wrong? Thanks. -- CL 23:03, 7 Oct 2003 (PDT)
Why can't I highlight text with my cursor? Is there something wrong with the script on this site? It only happens for this site... --Jiang 00:02, 18 Sep 2003 (PDT)
Okay, I switched to standard skin. However, there is no logo. --Jiang 10:26, 18 Sep 2003 (PDT)
The search query "san francisco" returns no results. --Shannon 1:59, 17 Oct 2003 (PDT)
On this page: http://www.wikitravel.org/en/article/Special:Upload
The link to the Image_policy page points to image_use_policy, which page does not exist. There's no link to edit the Special:Upload page so I can't fix it.
Subject of email
I got an email from a Wikitraveler with the subject "Wikipedia e-mail". I verified with whois that it came from Montréal, not from a Wikipedia box. Shouldn't the subject be "Wikitravel e-mail"? -phma 23:03, 17 Jan 2004 (EST)
This will probably make it into the wiki code itself, but it would be nice if there was a visual cue about the approximate amount of data behind a link (nothing, stub, full). --Dhalbrook 15:28, 7 Jan 2004 (EST)
Log on to two Wikitravels
I made an account on the Romanian Wikitravel and found myself logged out of the English one. Then I logged into the English Wikitravel and got logged out of the Romanian one. -phma 17:22, 25 Jan 2004 (EST)
Orphaning due to rename during edit?
On January 31, 2003, I created a link from San Francisco to non-existing page San Francisco/Suggestions for choosing a Chinese Restaurant (don't make this a link, it de-orphans the page). I then clicked the link and started writing it. While I was editing it, someone moved the page to American Chinese food. The link disappeared from San Francisco creating an orphan (bug 1). This was not caused by an edit, unless the bug is instead that the page history for San Francisco was not added to for the link being removed (alternate bug 1).
There is also no history of the link being added in the first place (bug 2). (Note that my posting to that point was without being logged in.
The page also does not show up on Orphan pages (bug 3).
