Finally enabled VisualEditor successfully[edit | edit source]

I finally enabled mw:VisualEditor on all wikis. I'm still getting REST 404 errors with VisualEditor, but I have verified that those exhibit only when trying to edit a subpage. When trying to edit a subpage with VE, it fails with REST 404 when loading the VE, but if trying to create a subpage with VE it fails only after the final "save page".

This is an matter of importance, because mobile users have been unable to edit any pages due to an issue with mw:Extension:ConfirmEdit and mw:Extension:MobileFrontend not quite playing catch with each other.

I was alerted to the issue of no captcha by a user of the Consumerium development wiki on ciumd:User:Jukeboksi/Log/2021#Sunday 2021-02-07.

I filed a ticket on it ciumd:MediaWiki/Tickets/Phabricator T274807 - No CAPTCHA from ConfirmEdit served for users that use MobileFrontend.

I did try to enable VisualEditor on 2021-05-13 but run into 404 problems regarding the REST-traffic, as have many other people. See catalogue phabricator:T266971 - "Error contacting the Parsoid/RESTBase server" (HTTP 404/403) and similar errors (catalog). The weird thing about these 404's was that they did not start to exhibit immediately after enabling VisualEditor, nor did they exhibit consistently.

It seems that the 404 errors with the REST-communication used by VisualEditor are due to old style of apache2 rewrite engine settings.

For the problem of 404 errors in REST-communication I took the solution given here phabricator:T270376#7365202 after the breakthrough discovery phabricator:T270376#7364419 by Func.

This Apache configuration (snippet) in the VirtualHost directive in /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-website.tld worked for wikis where short URLs in the format of /wiki/ and the MediaWiki residing in /w/ and document root is one directory up from /w/

   RewriteEngine On

   RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI} !-f
   RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI} !-d
   RewriteRule ^(?:(?!rest.php/).)*$ %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/w/index.php [L]

Thank yous to Func for solving this for us and Kghbln for asking the question in phabricator:T270376 and thanks to Bob, who brought to my attention the problem that mobile users were unable to edit wiki.

Made and verified backups and took a snapshot of the system disk[edit | edit source]

  • Making and verifying backups and taking a snapshot in preparation of trying out the recently found fix for the REST communication 404s that Visual Editor has been causing for many. At least in one particular case it turned out to be an Apache2 rewrite configuration issue. Will try it out in my private test wiki and if it works there then I'll enable it in an another wiki and if that works then probably roll out the Visual Editor to all wikis, as that will enable also mobile users to edit the wiki (an CAPTCHA issue of long standing, pointed out by a Consumerium.org development wiki user). See ciumd:Tickets and feature request#Tickets under observation for general outline of the situation.

Upgrade to MediaWiki 1.35.3[edit | edit source]

  • Reverted MediaWiki to last Friday's state, upgraded the MediaWiki from 1.35.2 to 1.35.3 and performed backups and snapshotting. MediaWiki 1.35 is LTS, so going to stay on that.

Upgrade to MediaWiki 1.36.1 - rolled back[edit | edit source]

Upgraded the wiki MediaWiki briefly to 1.36.1. This was rolled back to a backup from 2021-07-16

After the upgrade the system started throwing 5 deprecation notices about the mw:Extension:EmbedVideo's way of doing things.

The good folks at MediaWiki development did some restriction(s) on parser functions (See mw:Release_notes/1.36 for more info). EmbedVideo implements a parser function.

Searching for a solution to the problem it appears that YouTubes and Vimeos can be embedded via the mw:Extension:Widgets and installing and enabling the widgets mw:Extension:Widgets#Video/Audio_widgets. As a long term solution this would appear better, because EmbedVideo has previously been interfering with mw:Extension:TimedMediaHandler, apparently due that they both take [[File:Filename.ext]]-syntax The TimedMediaHandler would have some good uses here in #SSF! wiki. There are some pieces in the Mediatheque that would benefit from timed text pointing out where it looks human and where it looks like a fake, which TimedMediaHandler implements.

As a temporary solution to suppress the deprecation messages I found "$wgDeprecationReleaseLimit = '1.x'; [to suppress all deprecation warnings added in version > '1.x']" as a solution in MediaWiki topic Is there a way to suppress Deprecated messages using PHPunit? Juho Kunsola (talk)

  • I was made aware today by a user on the Consumerium development wiki that there is a problem with invoking the mw:CAPTCHA for the mobile users, rendering mobile users unable to edit any pages. This is a semi-known issue in mw:Extension:MobileFrontend. There is an another minor issue to patch also. I'm looking for a solution or workaround to the problem for our mobile users and making backups now. Juho Kunsola (talk) 16:10, 7 February 2021 (CET)

  • Looking at mw:Help:Tables because many visitors of Biblical explanation - The books of Daniel and Revelation are using a mobile device with around 360 px screen width and I originally did not think of mobile users, hence the table in there is a bit tight for mobile screens. I'm thinking of reorganizing it and figuring out a way to format the explainer-portion as 100% width of the table. Juho Kunsola (talk) 13:23, 22 January 2021 (CET)
Got it sorted. Key was to set the columnspan correctly and just making the tables 2-columns wide instead of 4. Juho Kunsola (talk) 18:37, 22 January 2021 (CET)
