$3 Errors[edit]

  • On the Recentchanges page, it says this: "Below are the last 100 changes in the last 7 days, as of $3."
For me, it only does this on the 1.6.8 Recent changes... -CapitalQtalk ♪ 11:05, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
You are correct. Looks like they made a change to MediaWiki:Rcnote, which wasn't compatible with 1.6.8.
  • I don't know if this is caused by different versions or whatever, but the What links here page for 1.6.7 pages say "The following pages link to $1:" while the pages under 1.8.2 are normal. So I don't really know if the upgrade is fixing a problem or is making one. --badqueso 22:21, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Fixin'. :) -CapitalQtalk ♪ 22:23, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

File Uploads[edit]

  • Uploading files throws this error: Could not copy file "/tmp/phpQWkY5i" to "/home/tmbwnet/public_html/mediawiki-1.8.2/images/2/27/Green-status.gif".
Did a recursive chmod on the /images directory, and it's fine now.

#If Logic[edit]

Song Votes[edit]

  • Not sure if it's related, but now, it's not working when i try to vote on a song that has an apostrophe in the name. Need to investigate why that's occurring. See I've Got A Fang (Demo) for a place to try it. --Duke33 15:51, 20 October 2006 (UTC)
Fixed now. It was actually a much older issue, from when we converted to iframes a month back. --Duke33 01:31, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

Ratings page weirdness[edit]

  • All the links Song Ratings have plus signs where there should be spaces. The links are blue, but they all lead to non-existant pages. My guess is that the spaces are being converted to pluses instead of underscores. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 09:26, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
Good catch..Changed urlencode() to rawurlencode() and seems ok now. --Duke33 09:54, 25 October 2006 (UTC)
