Voting IFrame[edit]

The iframe that contains the voting stuff is busted on all the song pages. Need to investigate why that isn't working. --Duke33 22:36, 6 Aug 2005 (EDT)
I think this behavior is buggy in the new 1.4.7, so i opened up a defect on it. Hopefully someone can assist. --Duke33 17:50, 7 Aug 2005 (EDT)
I finally received some more info, and found out that it wasn't a bug per se...It's just that the old way of doing things just stopped working. I've made a change so that it works under the current method. --Duke33 13:07, 8 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Sidebar Navigation & Footer[edit]

:Need to restore side nav & bottom footer--Duke33 22:36, 6 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Vote .css[edit]

:Need to fix up the .css on the vote pages.--Duke33 22:36, 6 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Song List[edit]

-I just noticed that the Song List page has been divided into 5 seperate pages with the sub-categories' links (Songs (Collaborations) and Songs (Solo Projects)) on the fourth page. Is there any way in the new format that we can change this back to the former version which was simply one long page that listed all of the songs and had the sub-categories at the top of the page? This would be very helpful for me, at least, with the various things I attempt to do on this site. -badqueso 04:02, 7 Aug 2005 (EDT)
Will look into it. --Duke33 08:49, 7 Aug 2005 (EDT)
Here's a description of the functionality on I don't know that there's anything we can do, as i don't see any documentation for customizing it. Will keep looking into it, but i don't know if there's anything we can do, except perhaps create an A-Z top nav template, as they have mentioned...urgh. --Duke33 09:55, 8 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Patrolled Edits[edit]

:Apparently, when you upgrade, all the old edits are not marked as patrolled. Will have to run a db job to fix that.

Song Nav Stub[edit]

The background colors on the song nav stub do not work any longer. Need to investigate why that is. --Duke33 13:07, 8 Aug 2005 (EDT)


Looks like that when they moved to 1.4, they modified the login code, so ThisMightBeABot can't login. His edits are currently being recorded under --Duke33 16:01, 9 Aug 2005 (EDT)

Whew...what a pain in the ass...but i think it's fixed now. --Duke33 22:54, 16 Aug 2005 (EDT)

File Uploads[edit]

File uploads were disabled. All i had to do was add $wgDisableUploads = false; to the config file, and it's ok now. --Duke33 23:30, 26 Aug 2005 (EDT)
