Wiki Acceptance Tests

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

When upgrading the wiki, or moving to a new operational location, use these tests to ensure that everything is functional.

In all cases, the pages should look the same as they did previously. The best way to ensure this would be to compare their appearance in the new installation with their appearance in the old (existing) installation.

Upgrade notes

With this upgrade, we are also upgrading a number of extensions. There may be some backward-incompatibilities that require content changes:

  • The newer version of the ImageMap extension requires polygon shapes to have an even number of points.

Browser compatibility

Test with the following browsers:

  • FireFox
  • Chrome
  • Safari
  • Opera
  • IE

I'm not too worried about versions... as long as we're hitting with a version within the last two major releases.. nothing too old (aka Chrome 5 or 6, FF 3.5 or 3.6, IE 7 or 8, etc)

Basic content tests

Images and image pages

Make sure all images appear properly, including the SL logo at upper left, CC and MW logos at the bottom, and uploaded images. Here are a few examples:

Special pages


To check that the API is active, click this link:


Nowhere on the site should there be HTTPS errors (i.e. broken lock in the browser), especially not on the Login page. Acid test is IE, which complains the most. Chrome has a weird bug where sometimes it'll complain about HTTPS problems while no other browser does.

Pages to test:

  • Front page
  • Login page
  • User page (Torley's?)
  • File:Image page


The following query returns a list of the namespaces defined:

This should return the following:

Protected namespaces


Test "Google Search" in the sidebar:

  1. Enter a search term.
  2. Click Google Search.

Make sure it returns reasonable results.

Subpages in main namespace

Go to Wiki Acceptance Test/Subpages -- first line should just say "Wiki Acceptance Test", second line should just say "Subpages". If they both say "Wiki Acceptance Test/Subpages", then this isn't working right.


Check if email is sent when:

  • Your Special:Preferences are set, including your email address
  • A page on your watchlist is changed


Check that Special:Version lists the same set of installed extensions.


The special page Special:Cite should exist.

Flagged Revisions

  1. Edit a page in the Knowledge Base.
  2. Check that the edit becomes a "draft" revision.
  3. As a reviewer user, approve the edit, and check that it becomes the "stable" revision.

Check the Admin Dashboard to ensure that pages show up in the various FR special pages.

Example of known error:

Error: Found poly with odd number of coordinates on line 3

User:Ugleh UlrikUgleh chat left.png

Error: Found poly with odd number of coordinates on line 3

Error: Found poly with odd number of coordinates on line 3

Example of corrected image map:

User:Ugleh UlrikUgleh chat left.png
User:Ugleh UlrikUgleh chat right.png
User:Ugleh UlrikUgleh chat bottom.png


If these show the correct values, then this extension is working:

  • pi = {{ #const: pi }}
  • e = {{ #const: e }}
  • sqrt(2) = {{#const:sqrt(2)}}


See Performance Testers#Results.


Set the variable "myvar" to be "1234:

If the following shows "1234", then this is working properly:

The value is >>> 1234 <<<



Check that the following list of widgets shows up:

Do we need to test each individual widget? Probably not. Maybe just test a couple.

Add metas

Check that each page has

<meta name="mat" content="PG_NOT" /> 

in its <head>.


Check that MediaWiki:Breadcrumbs exists and that breadcrumbs are displayed properly.


If the following is displayed as formatted text the extension is working.

<lsl>default { state_entry() { llOwnerSay(""); } }</lsl>

Also see Syntax Highlighting Examples.

Google Analytics Integration

Check that each wiki page has the following at the bottom:

<script type="text/javascript">
var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
<script type="text/javascript">
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-190376-9");


Check that a page in the LLO namespace shows the following header and footer:

Rename User

See if Special:RenameUser exists.


If this page exists, then the extension is installed. Special:ReplaceText. Try it out and confirm that it works properly.


If what follows is the current date and time formatted as Y m d H:i:s then this extension is working.

2024 04 14 20:53:31


If the number on the line below is 4, then this extension is working.
