Localized words (used in titles) don't work properly

See, e.g. titles in Polish section of Jules Verne. Electron (talk) 01:13, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Fixed. The issue was that import labels wrapped in noinclude tags were breaking the formatting. Sysadmin (talk) 20:56, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Abbreviated links don't work properly

Abbreviated links: see eg. Hector Servadac - most of links on this page are abbreviated links, and they don't work. Eg. the abbreviated link [[/I/01|Rozdział I]] should be produced by MediaWiki automaticly like the long link [[Hector Servadac/I/01|Rozdział I]]. Electron (talk) 01:21, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Fixed, apparently this was related to subpages being disabled in the mainspace as they are by default. Sysadmin (talk) 21:07, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

Subpages (in main space, especially) don't work

It is need to switch this function on. How to do it, see -> https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Subpages . Meny pages and templates created by me use this function and now they don't work properly. Electron (talk) 11:59, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

  • This has been switched on now! Sysadmin (talk) 21:07, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
  • OK. Thanks for all :) Electron (talk) 02:16, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Links on other wikis

Should links elsewhere be updated to target the new domain name? I understand may be the old domain name used prior to 2017. I am not certain that is the case. Frayae (talk) 11:01, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Yes links should be retargeted to wikilivres.org however all old links will still work. Sysadmin (talk) 00:51, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Broken redirects

There are 66 redirects to Bibliowiki pages, showing as broken redirects.--Poetlister (talk) 09:09, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

All the "Bibliowiki" pages (like this one for example) have been changed to "Project" pages. I will have to create redirects manually to fix the redlinks. Sysadmin (talk) 09:21, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Recent changes

I made several edits yesterday, but they do not appear in recent changes.--Poetlister 20:57, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

You can see those recent changes if you press "show bots". I am not sure why yet but basically the software thought all the crats were bots when I ran the rebuildrecentchanges script. I suspect I bundled too many permissions in the user-right and one of them is only meant for bots. Changes made since I ran the script are unaffected. Arthur (talk) 22:33, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

The database

Was earlier overloaded by me and then accidentally sent into a maintenance cycle when I tried to fix it. It should be fine now. The problem was caused by me reading/fetching pages with pywikibot via the API too fast (while preparing to automatically fix redlinks to the reamed bibliowiki namespace) and is not an issue with the editing done just beforehand by Electron who was fixing categories. I may try and put a rate limiter in there to slow down the fetch speed. Arthur (talk) 16:23, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Partially your fault. However the database is a managed one and you can toggle data import mode when you need to do bot runs, this will temporarily switch off the automatic live backup system which is what locked everything. Jl22388 (talk) 16:48, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Interwiki to wikia site should be fixed

Interwiki to wikia site on Special:Interwiki should be fixed to https://www.wikia.com/wiki/w:c:$1 like it is on wikipedia projects.

Now it dosn't work properly if you try to link to specific wikia project, eg. wikia:wiersze:Stefan Barszczewski (proper interwiki should link to https://wiersze.wikia.com/wiki/Stefan_Barszczewski).

There are some interwiki links to wikia on wikilivres. Electron (talk) 18:51, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

  • OK, thanks. Now works properly. Electron (talk) 11:40, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Special:WantedFiles dosn't work properly

If I try to open the page I received 504 Gateway Time-out error every time. If I know which files are most wanted I will try to search the replacements on Commons and link them... Electron (talk) 21:46, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

It must be taking too long to load at the backend. I will see what I can do. Jl22388 (talk) 10:01, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
J, it works for me some of time now, but I don't think we should give excessive execution time to the PHP process to deal with this. I believe that it is a cache issue (or rather a lack of cache) which generates the list every time it is asked for. There is no way it would take so long as to timeout otherwise. Arthur (talk) 12:43, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
With luck these pages will work if there are less missing images. I am importing the images we used to have with a maintenance script and will see if that makes a difference. Arthur (talk) 16:49, 15 November 2018 (UTC)
