Upgrade history

It seems unprobable that the following issues appeared on their own, most probably MediaWiki extensions got updated and some things do no longer work as before. Would be good to know the history of upgrades to identify changes that has been made and how they have affected this wiki.  « Saper // @talk »  10:58, 27 January 2018 (EST)

Adfeno:

IRC

  • I attempted to fix this but it seems that something is interfering with the formatting. Strangely enough, if I make a simple page without the form, and use the IRC template, it works as expected. I don't know if this is the case, but I think there is some template interfering.--Adfeno (talk) 23:23, 26 January 2018 (EST)
  • As requested in #fsf IRC channel, here is the comment I made there, describing my studies so far:
I think that #replace will just mask the underlying issue. --David Hedlund (talk) 10:49, 27 January 2018 (EST)
    • I think there is so far the following possibilities:
      1. an issue between the templates used;
      2. an issue with the #ask: queries and the template result format;
      3. we have reached a setting limit that makes the formatting not work (perhaps a limit on the template result format, although I have tried to remove the call to Template:IRC but it didn't work, we might have to make tests by simplifying the template result calls even further to see if this is indeed the problematic setting);
      4. an issue with the "IRC [level name]" properties when setting (#set:) or their query and display.
    I think we can make use of #nowiki or #- display parameters when querying for the "IRC [level" properties of an entry (this is queried for in Template:Show) in order to take the property value in raw (example: irc:chat.freenode.net/fsf) but then we will need to change either Template:Print entry or Template:IRC (the first one is the problematic, so I recommend to test with it first) so that it removes irc: but also allows any other : (because the URL scheme allows port numbers).

  • While MediaWiki understands IRC URLs very well, Our copy Semantic MediaWiki gets confused if a property of type URL has a protocol different from HTTP, this problem also happens if the property definition/setting is invisible (using #set:), but in all cases it works as expected if the protocol is HTTP. I don't know if this is a bug in Semantic MediaWiki (or MediaWiki) but this affects at least our copy of it. An example of the issue with IRC property can be seen in: https://directory.fsf.org/wiki?title=Free_Software_Directory:Sandbox&oldid=48884 --Adfeno (talk) 11:32, 27 January 2018 (EST)
  • As of SMW 2.5.1, http https and ftp URL schemes will be printed with double slashes, all other without: https://github.com/SemanticMediaWiki/SemanticMediaWiki/blob/568d058ea68859d134654a959001ba0739c781e3/includes/dataitems/SMW_DI_URI.php#L68-L70  « Saper // @talk »  12:49, 27 January 2018 (EST)
