Wiki Bug List and Reports
« on: August 07, 2011, 10:36:10 pm »
This topic is to be used for a list of bugs that have been found/squashed and to report new bugs.

The list is as follows:

  • The Main Page's comments link and other links back to the forum lead back to the glitchcity.info domain instead of the forums subdomain doesn't seem to be true as of 9/24/2011 - malacoda
  • The Search Forums Search Table in the sidebar is missing
  • The SMF menu at the top of the wiki pages leads to glitchcity.info domain instead of the forum subdomain. no longer as of 9/24/2011 - malacoda
  • The search bar at the top of the wiki leads to somewhere... that redirects to the "we're down" page.
  • Special:SpecialPages spits out some sort of internal error when accessed fixed 8/15/2011 - malacoda
  • The user menu (*Username* My talk My preferences etc.) does not appear anywhere on the wiki in the GCL3 theme
  • Links to G/S/C Glitch Pokemon are missing.  Link/Name to F1 in Yellow is missing. Link to C7 in R/B is missing fixed 12/8/2012 - malacoda
  • TM55 R/B is missing from the AttackDex. added 12/8/2012 - malacoda
  • Custom GCL Sidebar (MediaWiki:Sidebar) is not rendering, instead default MediaWiki Sidebar is.
  • Slowness issues 12/8/2012 I installed memcached and that seems to be a visible speed up - malacoda
  • [[File:X|Thumb|Right|alttext]] is not working as expected. It successfully makes a thumbnail of an image with alttext, although its orientation defaults to the left hand side of the page. fixed 12/8/2012 - malacoda
  • On the GlitchDex pages, every instance of 'Pokémon' e.g.  here is shortened to Pok[%EA%AE%AF]n (appears to be a generally unused unicode character depicted by unicode block 'ABAF' when highlighted over in a link), and is rendered as 'Pokn', or  Pokꮯn. seems to be fixed 12/8/2012 - malacoda
  • The Wiki uses the same bullet points as the forums use instead of the Pokéball bullet points which it used to use. fixed 12/8/2012, now both forum and wiki use the pokeballs - malacoda
  • Some glitchdex pages seem to have bad special defense stat data (e.g. http://glitchcity.info/wiki/index.php/GlitchDex/RB:192) fixed 12/8/2012 - malacoda

  • Search Wiki returns a blank page saying "" regardless of what you type in. However, clicking 'Go' when an existing article title or redirect is inputted returns the existing article as usual.

Specific errors:
  • [[File:X|Thumb|Right|alttext]] is not working as expected. It successfully makes a thumbnail of an image with alttext, although its orientation defaults to the left hand side of the page.

Edit: One of the bugs was on the forums only.

Hi!

I'm Evie.

I'm a transgender person, but any pronouns are fine. She/her preferred.

Unfortunately due to legal concerns I won't be using emulators and unauthorised copies of ROMs anymore, just real hardware with official cartridges and a cheating device (Xploder) to aid research, sorry.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪





Thanks Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

If you like, please contact me by private message here on the forums as I no longer check other places very often.

I like to collect interesting video games. ^_^

Faith (which doesn't have to be religious) and a positive attitude/optimism is half the battle for well-being.

Fun times come and go, we may argue what is the point if nothing in this world is permanent; and all energy is believed to be subject to transformation. I guess in the temporary absence of it though, we value those times more and even though some things seem to be lost, they return in other forms.

  • The links on the GlitchDex are underlined red when highlighted, although they are not red-links
This happens with all links, go try it.

    Oh, OK. Thanks GARY. Sorry about the 'Pokmn' thing, I didn't realize that it only happened on the forums.

    Edit:
    • On the GlitchDex pages, every instance of 'Pokémon' e.g.  here is shortened to Pok[%EA%AE%AF]n (appears to be a generally unused unicode character depicted by unicode block 'ABAF' when highlighted over in a link), and is rendered as 'Pokn', or  Pokꮯn.
    • The Wiki uses the same bullet points as the forums use instead of the Pokéball bullet points which it used to use.
    • Changing your time settings via Special:Preferences works, but apparently has no effect.

    I can't log into the wiki. It redirects me to the maintenance page and keeps me unlogged. :/
    Hug me~!

    If you login to the forums, you're logged into the wiki.

    Currently the top menu on the wiki for the forums doesn't use the forums subdomain, which is why it redirects.  The search menu at the top is also to an invalid location that redirects.

    For some reason, this doesn't seem to be the case for me. When I'm signed in to the forums, clicking back to the Wiki through a link such as Recent Changes makes it say that I'm signed out, and so I'm also unable to edit. Returning to the forums makes it say that I'm signed in, as if the site was regarding it as two accounts.

    ^That's exactly what's happening to me. Maybe your browser has the cookies from old GCL wiki or something, Gary.
    Hug me~!

    Proof it works for whatever reason for me. (My name is messed up from an old SMF/Wiki bug during the early days of Project Phoenix, Malacoda hasn't gotten around to fixing it yet if you were wondering why it says GARY ;47894gM 9)

    But did you log into the wiki after you got the username/password to access this beta GCL, or were you already logged in?

    It auto logged me in, I didn't have to do anything.

    P.S. Are you using the GCL3 theme and not Monobook if that has anything to do with it?

    That explains. Your browser is actually using an old cookie from old GCL. So don't log out, or you'll be locked out like us. :P

    Uhh actually, I can try as hard as I want to logout, but the old cookie keeps triggering a login.  The wiki's cookie also works for SMF.  I found the cookie and see the date of it now, it's from December 4th.  Pressing logout on the forums only clears forums.glitchcity.info subdomain cookies, not glitchcity.info cookies.  This is what keeps me logged in.

    Another bug here seems to be that the forums can't trigger a Wiki login for some reason.  Possibly due to domain name issues or changed database, idk.

    I'll be happy to provide Malacoda with the cookie if needed.
