Extension talk:MaintenanceShell


You shall ask for MaintenanceShell to be in SVN, as it seems useful and already in production version. What's your feeling about this? --almaghi 16:12, 17 June 2009 (UTC)Reply

I like to monitor downloads from my server.. but perhaps I should consider your suggestion :) thanks --Frantik 00:38, 19 June 2009 (UTC)Reply
You're welcome ;). Note that it was a suggestion from and for user (without any developer point of view): the advantage for users to have extensions in SVN repository is that extensions are this way full-packed in nightly-built; therefore we don't need to navigate, search and pick through the 1,493 MediaWiki's extensions...
Cannot you get an access to SVN repository that would permit you to kind-of monitor the downloads? (I don't understand what does that really mean, by the way, so apologize my stupid question). Have a good day, --almaghi 09:02, 19 June 2009 (UTC)Reply
I honestly don't know anything about the SVN repository LOL --Frantik 09:09, 19 June 2009 (UTC)Reply
Commit access requests for /extensions/MaintenanceShell. --almaghi 21:32, 23 June 2009 (UTC)Reply
Hi! I see from Special:Code/MediaWiki/author/swiftlytilting that you did get commit access. This setup guide should help you to get your extensions into the main MediaWiki Subversion repository. Please let us know on IRC if you need any help, or contact me. Thanks! Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 21:40, 12 January 2012 (UTC)Reply

=> Extension talk:MaintenanceShell. Good idea those additional links! --almaghi 09:02, 19 June 2009 (UTC)Reply

I think that there is a small bug in the current version (0.2.2). In MaintenanceShell.php the following line:

echo '<a href="' . $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] . '&title=Special:MaintenanceShell">Return to the Maintenance Shell</a>';

should be...

echo '<a href="' . $_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'] . '?title=Special:MaintenanceShell">Return to the Maintenance Shell</a>';

(ie replace & before "title" with ?)

Otherwise the "Return to the Maintenance Shell" does not work. Camerojo 01:21, 8 September 2009 (UTC)Reply

Thanks, I added that fix and will release a new version soon. I think firefox must not care if ? or & is used because it works on my browser even though it's obviously incorrect. --Frantik 03:35, 8 September 2009 (UTC)Reply



I was looking for an extension that would tweet about new articles for my wiki and came across SendToTwitter2. It works great for my purposes, and I was able to modify it to use my own URL shortener instead of TinyURL. Thank you for making the code available! I was wondering if you know a way to show the "Tweet about this edit" box only to registered users (in much the same way the "Minor edit" and "Watch this page" checkboxes only show up when you're logged in)?

Merging SendToTwitter2


Greetings - I'm merging three Twitter extensions into one - and down the road would like to include SendToTwitter2. Credits and functions will remain in place. Here's the discussion, please let me know if you have any objections or input. Thank you! --Varnent 21:36, 19 December 2011 (UTC)Reply

Extensions workshop tomorrow


MediaWiki.org's WikiProject Extensions is presenting their first MediaWiki Workshops for developers (volunteer and staff). Preparing extensions for MediaWiki 1.19 will be held tomorrow, on 13 January, 2012 at 19:00 UTC in IRC (#wikimedia-dev).

This IRC workshop will be an opportunity to find out about changes in MediaWiki 1.19 that may require revisions to extensions or skins. Also an opportunity to ask MediaWiki developers questions regarding extension development.

Everyone is invited to attend. Developers interested in serving as "extensions" or "MediaWiki 1.19" experts are encouraged to signup as participants at: Project:WikiProject Extensions/MediaWiki Workshops#MediaWiki 1.19 Experts

If there's continued interest / demand, MediaWiki Workshops will typically last one hour, and happen no more than twice a month to present trainings, hold discussions and collaborate on community or WikiProject Extensions projects. Facilitators host the session to introduce any presenters, determine the order of questions, and generally helps to keep things going. Time of day will vary in order to offer people in different parts of the world the opportunity to participate. Future topics will likely include MW.org documentation, ResourceLoader orientation and workshops similar to our inaugural chat to prepare for each MediaWiki release.

More information: Project:WikiProject Extensions/MediaWiki Workshops

MediaWiki.org's WikiProject SysAdmins will also likely host similar MediaWiki Workshops to help third-party wiki system administrators. Stay tuned for more information, and chime in at: Project:WikiProject SysAdmins/Ideas Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 21:41, 12 January 2012 (UTC)Reply



Hi Frantik. I know that you haven't edited this site for a while, but if you're reading this, could you please have a look at Extension talk:CustomSidebar and address some of the unanswered questions? My own question concerns the inability to get the additional sidebar working for registered users. All the best, Cavila MW 1.17, MySQL 5.5.16, Php 5.3.8 16:15, 29 January 2012 (UTC)Reply

Heiya Frantik, the code of your extension is deteriorating a bit. Since it is quite a popular extension you may want to have a look at the issues posted on its talk page. Any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers --[[kgh]] (talk) 14:46, 12 August 2014 (UTC)Reply

JW Player


Good morning,

I added the JW Player to my mediawiki and the player shows up all right. However, if I upload an mp4 for example and add it to a page, it plays only the audio from mp4 but no image. Any ideas how to fix this? Also it doesn't always open all mp4 files. For some others I just get an error... Any suggestions would be much appreciated.



Adding your extension to git


Hi please can you make a request http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Git/New_repositories/Requests here so that MediawikiPlayer can be added to git please 19:18, 7 August 2014 (UTC)Reply



Hi I left message on talk for CustomSidebar. Anyways the Customsidebar no longer seems to be working. At least it's not on 1.23.6. All the best to you. (And happy thanksgiving if you celebrate it) Christharp (talk) 23:33, 27 November 2014 (UTC)Reply
