Second Life Wiki Known Issues

From Second Life Wiki

We recently moved the Second Life Wiki to a new server host. As part of this, we upgraded to Mediawiki version 1.15.5, and made corresponding upgrades to related software and some of the extensions. For details, see Special:Version. This will result in overall better performance and reliability for the site.

Although we tried to ensure that the change would be transparent to wiki users, there are a few open issues that we are still resolving, detailed below.

Known issues

We are working to correct these issues as quickly as possible, but we cannot say for certain when they will be resolved.

  • Default breadcrumbs - The default breadcrumb for sub-pages that do not otherwise have a breadcrumb determined by a category does not currently work. The default breadcrumb is defined in Template:DefaultBreadcrumb.
  • Single user name login - New users who have a single username, rather than the old "FirstName LastName" username cannot currently log in to the wiki. These users can read all wiki articles, but they cannot edit.
  • Imagemap & Variables - When not logged in, imagemap causes all variables to be discarded.
  • Wrong time zone in wiki configuration - WEB-3413

Changes to extension functionality

  • Imagemap extension - We upgraded to the latest version of the ImageMap extension. There is a backward-incompatibility for image maps that have polygons with an odd number of coordinates. To correct this, make sure that all polygons have an even number of coordinates. See Wiki_Acceptance_Tests#ImageMap for details.
