Embedding dynamic content from other sources

1
Gigawattx (talkcontribs)

I'm trying to determine if this will do what I'm looking for. I have a webserver running in a different place than the one hosting my mediawiki install (only accessible internally). I want to embed content from that other web server based on a variable that is sent within the URL. Example ([URL]/scriptname?sname=hh7750) - where that hh7750 is a dynamic value. I want to put the html that you get back from that query into the cell of a table or something along those lines in one of my mediawiki pages. Is this mechanism entirely static (i.e. you can't pass a variable)? If so, do you know of any other extension that I might be able to do that with safely? Thank you for your time - I'm a noob at the deeper workings of mediawiki.

Thanks for your good program

There are some styles that change wiki pages:

For example: https://wikicod.ir/wiki/Test

What method should I use that does not affect another VIC code css?

<htmlet>test1</htmlet>

Thanks

Compatibility with VisualEditor

Hwgen22 (talkcontribs)

Currently, when a user tries to edit a page which contains a page rendered with HTMLets using VisualEditor, the HTML page included disappears as it is parsed as a div by VE. Thus, if user saves its changes to the page, the HTML page content is no longer included.

Would it be possible to make HTMLets compatible with VisualEditor or is it inherently impossible? Addind such compatibility would be great, as editing a page by manipulating the source can be difficult for non-experienced users...

Thank you in advance for your responses,

Not sure if this is proper, but here is how I fixed it:

diff HTMLets.php HTMLets.php.org
133,137c133,135
< $text = preg_replace_callback(
< '//sm',
< function ($m) {
< return base64_decode("$m[1]");
< },
---
> $text = preg_replace(
> '//esm',
> 'base64_decode("$1")',


If anyone has a better solution, please post it.

Thank you!

I think you should file a bug for this at bugzilla: and provide this patch for others to have a look at the issue.

hi guys,

thanks for the great functionality this extension brings to Wiki.. really helpful ! got one question - i keep trying to have it parse PHP files as well - as far as i can see, when htmlet requests the file, the web server will return the results as HTML, so i don't see why it won't work...however it does not work...for me at least :) any help / hint is highly appreciated

ahh...figured it out myself... all you need to do is specify "http://" and the complete path to the php file, and the resulting HTML output will be rendered, rather than the PHP source ;)

Hello:

I'm getting the following error message on my wiki:

Deprecated:  preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in HTMLets.php on line 139.

I'm running:

MediaWiki 1.25.3

PHP 5.6.19 (apache2handler)

MySQL 5.1.56-log

Thank you!

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

This was reported with T68706 and fixed with this commit in June 2015. Use the REL1_26 tag or the MW 1.26 tarball and the issue should go away. Cheers

It would be nice to add wiki code inside HTML pages, for example, autofill username in a form field.

Peachey88 (Flood) (talkcontribs)

HTMLets are for static HTML only. Extension:RawMsg might allow something like this, not sure.


In any case: pre-filling form fields with user-specific information has to be done with JavaScript anyway. Remember that the generated HTML for pages gets cached. This means that there can be no user-specific content there.

Is there any way to split HTMLet files into subfolders within the main htmlets directory?

I've got a lot of these and it would be nice to separate them, rather than having them all in one megafolder.

I tried

<htmlet>subfolder/filename</htmlet>

but that didn't work.

No biggie if this is impossible.

When trying to use this extension with PHP 5.3.0, the following error occurs:

Warning: Parameter 3 to wfRenderHTMLet() expected to be a reference, value given in /.../w/includes/parser/Parser.php on line 3243

Any help would be appreciated. Thx

I can confirm that, I have exactly the same problem (line 3243) under PHP 5.3.1 now! So I have put away the Probably from the title. ;-)

Hello Daniel, with 1.17 you mean the next release of MediaWiki, correct?

After updating to XAMPP 1.7.7 with PHP 5.3.8 and MediaWiki 1.17.0 I again got the same problem, just on another line:

Warning: Parameter 3 to wfRenderHTMLet() expected to be a reference, value given in ...\includes\parser\Parser.php on line 3470

Then I downloaded the last version of the extension and replaced the previous version and added the necessary line ($wgHTMLetsDirectory = "$IP/htmlets";) to the LocalSettings.php and now it works fine again, at least for me!

Affirmative. After upgrade to PHP 5.3.8 this extension stopped working (same error message). (MW 1.17.0) I guess I will file a bug. Cheers

Edit: Done with bug 32714

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Shame on me. I moved the freshly downloaded extension to the wrong wiki. :( This is actually working with PHP 5.3.8. Case closed since r67215 did the job. Thank you for the fix and Cheers
