How to work around the loss of session data error
« on: February 12, 2018, 11:52:27 am »
(Stickied)

Sometimes when you try to upload a file on our wiki, it will say "Sorry! We could not process your edit due to a loss of session data."

There is a simple solution to this. Edit any non-file page to get the error message once. Try to submit the page a second time and it should work.

Then the next time you upload a file it should upload properly.

Note: This has only been tested by me on Chrome. Since I'm a sysop it's possible that it doesn't work for non-sysops. Could anyone without sysop or QC rights test this please? Thanks.

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).

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.

Still getting it. Tried editing a normal page and got the red text version of the error, then still got it when trying to upload. I tried logging out and back in first.
 

Welcome back. You seem more dudeish now, so that's good!

Hmm, have you tried pressing submit on the normal page twice in a row (or did you get the error message then immediately try to upload)? Sorry I think my wording was unclear.

Tried editing the normal page again...and got no error. Uploaded the file...and got no error. Wish I knew what caused it. Managed to get one screenshot up though, and hopefully more soon.

It seems like for whatever reason the session isn't fully "set up" until you actually try to edit a page. Trying again seems to resolve it, and once you have edits going through you should be able to do anything else like upload a file, confirm a revision, or rename a user.

I'm really trying to get this actually fixed, but it's really difficult to figure out. I hope to have it fixed in 18.08, but if not, I'll just have to go with the workaround (which is just to disable this specific check in mediawiki).

The SSO code really sucks (it was written 10+ years ago for ancient mediawiki + SMF versions; I've had to keep it up to date) and is using deprecated interfaces. I've been having a hell of a time trying to port it over to Extension:Auth renameuser which, as far as I can tell, should just "work" if I plug in the SMF user details.

Also adrianmalacoda or kuschelyagi in some places.

Thank you for working on it. For now it's not as inconvenient as I originally thought it was.
