Wiki add string to the end of the Page

TomyLee (talkcontribs)


sometimes my wiki adds some additional chars at the end of a page when saving the page. But this not happened every time only sometimes. I think it start some time after update to latest version. For example on one page the software add


Any Ideas where this can come from?

Software Version
MediaWiki 1.21.3
PHP 5.3.27 (cgi-fcgi)
MySQL 5.1.42-community

Have you moodified any of the php files in your MediaWiki installation?

If your wiki is public, a link to an example of this might help, also.

It looks like you've linked to this thread, but I doubt that is what you meant to do.

no, in my Situation the string is inserted at the end of the page the user want to edit. If i Edit the Page i see These Chars at the text and can delete these chars. Then everything is fine with this page and the chars not inserted again. These happens very rare,estimated only every 200 Edits.

Wiki is not public, used as Intranet System within my Company. (talkcontribs)

So you say they are inserted during editing, but not every time. That makes things somehow more complicated. Is it always one and the same sign, which is inserted? Is it always the sign "眠" (which btw stands for "close your eyes and go to sleep")?

If so, I would searchall wiki files for that one sign; it must be there somewhere...

No, it is not allways the same sign. (talkcontribs)

Do the edits, in which it gets added, have anything in common? Is it always a certain set of users, who have this problem? Is it always say the last paragraph of a page, that was edited when the sign got added?

Can you reproduce the problem? E.g. when you have an edit, where such a sign got added, do a revert and then have the same user do the same edit again. Is the sign there again? Again the same one as before?
