Changelog[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

  • Some configuration variables in ConfigManager do not have descriptions (#9662)
Increased the number of tooltips in ConfigManager.
  • Inconsistent image size properties for images of type "frame" (#16765)
Users were able to enter dimensions for image type "frame" in VisualEditor, but changing the size is not allowed for this image type. Size fields are now disabled for image type "frame".
  • Internal Server Error when saving the page due to EditNotify extension (#18114)
If a user was subscribed to receive notifications for individual namespaces/categories and deactivated the setting, saving the page that sends out a notifcation reported an error. This is now fixed.
  • Blog items are not displayed properly in search results (#18129)
Blog items and other social entities appeared as "(Blog)(Blog)" in autocomplete and as completely empty boxes in the SearchCenter. Blog entities are now displayed correctly.
  • Notification overview button is visible for non-logged-in users in mobile view (#18163)
The button for the notification overview was visible for users who were not logged in. This button is now visible only for logged-in users.
  • Changing the table style in VisualEditor is not always applied (#18176)
Setting the table style from the table properties dialog sometimes had no effect. Also, after changing the table style, the original value was still selected, even after it was changed. This is now fixed.
  • Button for notification overview is visible in mobile view even if Echo extension is not installed (#18214)
Now the button is only visible if the extension Echo is available on the wiki.
  • When exporting a book to PDF, all links in the book appear as external (#18224)
When exporting a book to PDF, every link to another wiki page was treated as extenal link and opened the target page in the browser. Links to pages that are contained in the PDF itself now jump to the page in the PDF instead of opening it externally.
  • Checklist is not saved when options are set (#18252)
Checklist of type list was not saved when there were additional options like color styles. Now cecklists get saved even with colors. The page gets saved as a new version which needs approval when working with FlaggedRevs.
  • Special characters in a book name are encoded incorrectly in PDF export (#18255)
When exporting a book to PDF, the file name did not show special characters. All special characters are now exported correctly.
  • Section identifiers are not persisted to the URL (#18266)
When clicking a link in the ToC, the page scrolled to the corresponding section, but the section ID was not reflected in the hash of the URL. This is now fixed.
  • Loading masks are not shown for some grids (#18345)
Pages like Special:UserManager, Special:NamespaceManager and simlira were not showing a loading mask before they were fully rendered. This is now fixed.
  • Watchlist appears empty in some cases (#18420)
When attempting to view your watchlist in the Watchlist dialog (not on the Special page), the list sometimes appeared empty. This is now fixed.
  • VisualEditor not completely visible in some resolutions in mobile view (#18476)
In certain resolutions and screen sizes, the toolbar of VisualEditor appeared partially or completely hidden behind the page header. This is now fixed.
  • Icon for editing/creating pages in topbar is enabled even if user does not have permissions. (#18537)
The button for editing and creating pages was clickable for users without permissions to perform the action. Users could not perform the action, however. Now the button is enabled only if a user has the necessary rights.

Fixed missing extjs dependency.

Changelog[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten]

  • Error when trying to save redirect pages in VisualEditor (#12766)
When editing a page that only has the #REDIRECT tag in its content, a client-side error occurred which prevented saving. The error is now fixed.
  • NamespaceManager does not allow adding multiple namespaces without reloading the page (#13736)
After adding a new namespace in the NamespaceManager, the dialog remained "disabled" and reloading the page was necessary to continue. The state is now reset properly after an "add"-action.
  • Editing talk namespaces in Namespace manager destroys the following namespace (#13862)
Talk namespaces were not recognized as such, resulting in NS_talk_talk names. Pages within the namespaces could no longer be accessed. This is now fixed. We also disabled FlaggedRevs and ReadConfirmation for talk namespaces.
  • Meaningless options for sorting offered in SearchCenter options (#14411)
Search sorting options had entries for entitydata that did not have any functionality. They have been removed.
  • Timeout too short for certain API calls in WikiExplorer (#14917)
In wikis with many articles or complex data structures, the call for data in WikiExplorer took too long, resulting in a timeout. We raised the limit to 30 minutes, effectively disabling the timeout here. Data should now be presented even in very large wikis.
  • All chapters of a book are shown on the same level in PDF table of contents (#15412)
In an exported PDF, the table of contents showed all entries on the same level, even if there were hierarchies. The hierarchy now shows up correctly in the PDF navigation.
  • Rating cannot be enabled in namespaces (#15947)
When migrating from BlueSpice 2, rating settings were not converted to BlueSpice 3 so tht NamespaceManager was not able to change the settings. There is now a maintenance script, which is also executed on update, to fix this issue.
  • Create new page from full text search with a namespace filter set ignores the namespace (#16258)
When a page was created from a search with a namespace filter, the page was created in the main namespace. Now, the page is created in the namespace the filter is set for.
  • TagCloud cannot be used with InsertMagic in VisualEditor (#16861)
A TagCloud could not be inserted or edited in VisualEditor due to a missing placeholder message. Now, a missing message does not break the inspector anymore.
  • Page assignments manager shows no entries (#16911)
In PageAssignments manager, no entries were shown due to a missing title information. This error is now caught and gracefully handled.
  • SocialEntity entries show up in standard logs and managers (#17073)
Since SocialEntity pages are used to store data, they showed up in several logs and managers. However, this is not neccessary, as they are only storing data for the timeline feature. We now hide these pages in standard views.
  • Content in tables gets different font sizes (#17132)
Font sizes in tables varied between standard cell and paragraph in cell constructs. The standard cell font size was aligned with the paragraph font size.
  • BlueSpiceAvatars ignores upload directory setting (#17151)
All avatars were stored in a subfolder of images, no matter what $wgUploadDirectory was set to. Now, avatars are stored in the correct place.
  • Duplicate page function is only available in main and talk namespace (#17349)
The option to duplicate a page was not available in many namespaces where it would make sense. It is now available in all content pages.
  • Unexpected update of links in duplicated books (#17390)
When a book was duplicated into a different namespace, all links were converted to the new namespace, which produced redlinks. Now, only links to pages contained in the new book are converted.
  • In Bookshelf, the OK button in the meta data dialog is always disabled (#17560)
Inthe " insert bookmeta" dialog, the OK button was disabled and new or modified bookmeta could not be saved. This is now fixed.
  • Cannot read protect main namespace (#17644)
Even though PermissionManager showed that the main namespace is locked down, everybody with the global read permission could still read it. This is now fixed.
  • PDF-Export does not handle stylings from Extension:TemplateStyles (#17697)
<style> elements added by Extension:TemplateStyles were not evaluated when exporting a page to PDF. This is now fixed.
  • PDF export fails when "external" Interwiki link exists on page (#17720)
If a page contained an Interwiki link that pointed to an external wiki, the PDF export failed. Now, this is handled correctly.
  • Add CLI script for management (#17737)
We added a script that allows setting page assignments from the command line interface.
  • Cannot specify per-page PDF export templates using bs:ueparams tag (#17738)
Setting a template in the universalexport:params tag had no effect. This is now fixed.

The watchlist dialog also showed watchlist items of other users. This is now fixed.
  • Cookie consent cookie are deleted after some time (#17748)
Cookies are no longer used as a primary storage for a user's cookie consent settings. The browser's local storage is used instead.

  • Name of the talk namespace is not updated when namespace name changes (#17813)
When the name of a namespace is changed, the name of its talk namespace is now updated as well.
  • Allowing browsing for file from "insert file link" dialog in VisualEditor is confusing (#17849)
The "Pick file" button "Link to file" tab in the link menu was confusing to users, since it openend the "Insert media" dialog of VisualEditor. The "Pick file" button has been removed.
  • VisualEditor sometimes stuck while loading (#17869)
In some cases, a required script was loaded too late, so that VisualEditor could not resolve its dependencies. The correct order of loading was restored.

Several different types of JS errors occured while using the ConfigManager. These are now fixed.
  • No filters in extended file list (#18042)
Filters were missing in the ExtendedFilelist special page so that it was impossible to narrow down the list of files. We restored the filters.
  • Page cannot be saved after editing (#18088)
