Extension talk:HighslideGallery

it doesnt work on wiki 1.20

Can you provide some more information on any errors you are experiencing? I'm running it on 1.20.2 just fine. Kodene (talk) 22:06, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

External repositoryEdit

Hi, it would be great if you add compatibility with shared repository. I use shared repository for most of my images and they won't work with this version 1.0.0.[1] --REX (talk) 03:26, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

I haven't used shared repository, but I believe I know why it's not working. I'll see about adding that. Kodene (talk) 06:05, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Gallery from CategoryEdit

Is there a way to create a gallery using all the files in a category? Movermeyer (talk) 20:50, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

This extension doesn't provide a means of doing that. I can look into adding that functionality, but you can also accomplish it with the Semantic Mediawiki extension, and using a query with a template format to issue the HighslideGallery calls (may be other extensions that allow you to query and use a template to format results as well).

Possibly Broken on 1.24.0Edit

I have just updated my wiki to 1.24.0 and any page with a HighslideGallery gallery will not load. The error log reports the following:

PHP Catchable fatal error Argument 1 passed to Linker::makeImageLink() must be an instance of Parser, null given, called in /<WebRootPath>/includes/Linker.php on line 691 and defined in /<WebRootPath>/includes/Linker.php on line 546

I'm not 100% sure this extension is the only problem but disabling it allows the page to load without error (but of course without the gallery working). The release notes for 1.24.0 mention: "...makeImageLink() now requires a Parser as its first parameter" which seems relevant. HenryHartley (talk) 18:29, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

It's possible that the bug here is in Linker.php, as the makeImageLink2() function in that file is what calls makeImageLink() with a null value for the first parameter (the error reported above). It appears that while makeImageLink2() has been depricated since 1.20, it is now inoperative. Not sure what the alternative is. Still working on it. Henryhartley (talk) 14:07, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Updated to fix the errors with MW 1.24+. Only testing on a dev wiki at the moment running 1.25.2, but if anyone is willing to test it out and report on any problems you can get an updated package here. Use the new method for loading extensions: wfLoadExtensions( array( 'HighslideGallery' ) ); Kodene (talk) 17:21, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
