Error 1146: Table 'my_wiki.ratepage_vote' doesn't exist

Noloader (talkcontribs)

I am running MW 1.35.2. I installed RatePage in `extensions` through Gitlab. I switched to `REL1_35` branch (which does not exist, so I am using the tip of Master). I added `wfLoadExtension('RatePage');` to `LocalSettings.php`. I am running `update.php`. The update script results in:

...site_global_key in table sites already modified by patch patch-sites-site_global_key.sql.
...iwl_prefix in table iwlinks already modified by patch patch-extend-iwlinks-iwl_prefix.sql.
...ratepage_vote table already exists.
...have rv_contest field in ratepage_vote table.
Modifying rv_contest field of table ratepage_vote ...

Naively, this looks like a problem:


my_wiki is the name of our wiki database. But we have two different wikis in the database, and each has prefix on its table names:

# grep prefix LocalSettings.php
$wgDBprefix         = "wikicryptopp_";


mysql> use my_wiki;
mysql> show tables;
| Tables_in_my_wiki                  |

Thank you for the detailed report! It seems the issue was that I forgot to take into account table prefixes in update scripts. I fixed this on the master branch, version 2.10.2 should be free of the problem. Please let me know in case it didn't work :)

The master branch is (or at least should be) perfectly compatible with REL1_35.

Thanks @Ostrzyciel.

Yes,it is working now.

One last question... How do I limit voting to authenticated users? I.e., non-anonymous users?

Thanks in advance.

There is no way to do this for now, sadly, I just didn't have a need for this.

I might look into implementing this, but my time is rather limited. The implementation should not be too hard, you are welcome to submit any merge requests to the repo: https://gitlab.com/nonsensopedia/extensions/ratepage

Noloader (talkcontribs)

Thanks again @Ostrzyciel.

OK, we'll give it a try with anonymous user voting.

I planned on using the RatePage results to identify bad articles that need re-writing. If anonymous users spam the results we'll disable the extension until someone cuts in the functionality.

Sorry I can't help with the implementation. I'm a C/C++/ObjC guy. I don't really know Python or PHP.

Thanks again.

@Noloader I'm glad to inform you that thanks to @Sir Polskacafe RatePage now supports this feature. Please check out from the master branch and configure it accordingly. In your case it's probably going to be:

$wgGroupPermissions['user']['ratepage-vote'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['*']['ratepage-vote'] = false; // disable the default

using page title magic word in widget

Farvardyn (talkcontribs)

Is this a valid tag?

{{#ratepage:{{ <PAGENAME > }}}}

I mean using the magic word for page title is possible?

Ostrzyciel (talkcontribs)

Yes, but you probably should use FULLPAGENAME that returns the name with the namespace prefix:

{{#ratepage:{{FULLPAGENAME}} }}

See: Help:Magic_words#Page_names

Ratepage Main votes widget bug

Pipsteer (talkcontribs)

I'm trying to insert a widget next to my page titles from within a template, to vote for the page itself.

Currently my call looks like:

{{#ratepage: {{FULLPAGENAME}} }}

However, the widget doesn't respond when clicking on it. If I change my widget call to vote in a contest:

{{#ratepage: {{FULLPAGENAME}}|Contest }}

It works fine...

Ostrzyciel (talkcontribs)

I just checked and... Ouch! You are right, this is currently broken. A fix should be simple, I'll look into this soon, maybe even today.

Thanks for the report! :)

Ostrzyciel (talkcontribs)

I made a patch, the issue should now be resolved on the master branch.

{{#ratepage:{{ <PAGENAME > }}}}

a valid tag? I mean using the magic world for page title is possible?

Ostrzyciel (talkcontribs)

If I understand correctcly you mean: {{#ratepage:{{PAGENAME}} }}

This should work fine and will let you rate the page the tag is on. Let me know if it doesn't work for you :)

Farvardyn (talkcontribs)

Thanks, It worked but found a bug, I posted it in a separate thread.

Ostrzyciel (talkcontribs)

Thanks for reporting these. As I've noted in the task, I should get around to looking into it in a few days. Hopefully.
