Closed Issues[edit]

Deciduous Skin Error[edit]

In the deciduous skin, we are getting this error:

Strict Standards: Declaration of Skindeciduous::initPage() should be compatible with Skin::initPage(OutputPage $out) in /home/tmbw/public_html/wiki/skins/Deciduous.php on line 25

I edited the skin directly, and modified the parameters that were passed to the init function. Fixed the issue. Also, this was occurring in all skins except Azure and Monobook. --Duke33 15:54, 20 March 2013 (EDT)

ThisMightBeABot Not Working[edit]

ThisMightBeABot is not working. Need to investigate. --Duke33 15:46, 20 March 2013 (EDT)

Update -- this might be an issue with the DNS still not being up-to-date. Will investigate more later. --Duke33 15:48, 20 March 2013 (EDT)
It's fixed now. I also went back to our old host, and updated their copies of the nameservers and "a" records. Perhaps this helped. --Duke33 15:54, 21 March 2013 (EDT)

Newsletter Archiving[edit]

The script that archives newsletters is not working. This is due the PHP configuration of the extensions directory on the new server.

  1. Re-ran easyapache and installed 'mbstring' first.
  2. Installed the "mailparse" PHP Pecl.
  3. Edited the php.ini to properly set the "extension_dir".
