MWiki Developer Guide Blank Pages

Carl Marcum
Hi All,

I think I've fixed the blank pages problem in the Developer Guide.
I've spot checked through all of the spreadsheet pages that had many
broken and they all display now.

Please check any that you have reported and let me know if you find any
that are still blank.

For those interested it was in the OOoIDLtags.php extension and the
solution was pointed out by Arrigo Marchiori as a deprecated method in
new versions of PHP.

So a big thanks to Arrigo!

Thanks,
Carl

That's great news. Thanks to all involved for being persistent to get
this problem solved.

Just checked the odd 50 pages I worked on this week in case your solution might not work.

Guess what.............. IT WORKS.

All pages display correct.

Thanks for the fix and your effort, also a big thanks to Rigo for pointing us in the right direction.

Did encounter some odd tags <idlml> and [IDL: ], but that has nothing to do with the solution.
I'll try to find the odd tags and fix them. For now I think all is well,,. ..... as it should be in this times.

Greetings

And thanks to you for trying to do something to fix it as well.

 From what I can tell from the extension the tags are idl, idlm, idls,
idlmodule, and idltopic [1].

It looks like someone deleted a wiki page about the idl tag extension 8
years ago [2].
Although I don't know if it had any content.

It would be good to have a page about it one day :)

That was fast.  Nice job and thanks for putting all that together.
I updated the one link I know about that pointed to the old missing page
here [1].

...and I think I've read all the MWiki-related mails sent to this list
by now, so I'll answer!

Thank you guys for fixing the long-standing bug.

I documented, back at the time, the MWiki setup in the infrastructure
repository (access restricted):
https://svn.apache.org/repos/infra/infrastructure/trunk/docs
This may be useful to know for people who have server access - look into
"services".

This is just a beginning though (hopefully!), as the "Andrea's mail"
from 2019 that was found by Matthias was indeed a plan that still holds.
Most importantly, we'll need to update the Mediawiki engine to a more
recent version and update all third-party plugins on one side, and our
custom components (skin, custom extensions) on the other one. And this
time I'd like the entire process to be automatically tested and to have
a less painful process for the local environment setup - as we'll want
to test everything locally first.

It's going to be a lot of work, but feasible - the aim is also to make
infrastructure modernizations that will allow us to update much more
easily in future.

I'll catch up with server changes and then I'll post an updated plan in
early January, which means next week.

Regards,
   Andrea.
