Fatal Errors

There's a sizable number of pages that give me the following error when trying to read the page contents:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wfLoadExtensionMessages() in /home/fireembl/public_html/extensions/Cite/Cite_body.php on line 116

Did something go wrong in the MediaWiki upgrade process to cause these errors? Is there a way to fix this, and if so, how long might it take? Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 00:18, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

I don't think anything went wrong with it, though I had troubles with 404 due to a bad installation directory. Usually extensions are compatible with newer versions, but now it seems like wfLoadExtensionMessages() was removed, causing many extensions to break. I fixed as many as I could find by uploading a newer version of the extension, and disabled the extensions that still didn't work (Asirra [this is why so many spambots are registering now, taco's looking into it] and InputBox). Cite seems to be working fine now --Sove (talk) 20:42, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Did some research on wfLoadExtensionMessages() and noticed it was deprecated back in 1.16 and removed during the development of 1.21. Both of the disabled extensions are working now, I simply removed all wfLoadExtensionMessages() calls from them. --Sove (talk) 20:52, 4 June 2013 (UTC)


I haven't been here in forever, so I don't really know how long this has been an issue, but it appears that Special:Patrol isn't working. When I try to open it, I get the error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wfLoadExtensionMessages() in /home/fireembl/public_html/extensions/Patroller/Patroller.class.php on line 28.

Any help? Thanks in advance. Seritinajii (talk) 15:55, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Works now, sorry it took so long, wiki emails seem to be going to spam folder. >_> --Sove (talk) 22:54, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

Searchbox Oddity

I've noticed something happening whenever I use the searchbox on the left side of the page after the MediaWiki upgrade. Upon typing something in, an area on the bottom of the window will appear and display on the left side "mw.Api error: , http, [object Object]", and on the right side "[<timestamp>]", where <timestamp> is the time the message was generated. The more is typed, the more of those messages get generated. The actual searchbox still works, but this kind of behavior is clearly unintended. Can this be ironed out? Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 00:14, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

This isn't happening to me, with or without my skin customisations. Can you upload a screenshot of it? --Moydow (Support) 01:29, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Here you go. --Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 02:07, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
I disabled some debug settings that were left on after upgrading. Try it now. --Moydow (Support) 03:50, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Good to go. Thanks. --Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 14:22, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Anti-Spam Concerns

Two days in a row I've ran into user accounts registered, then replace the concents of their user talk page with blatant advertising. Yesterday it was JefferyHWhite, today it's KellyALing. You can't see the blatant advertising in the current revisions of the user talk pages because I reverted the changes (they should still be in the edit histories as of this posting). Is it possible some of our anti-spam measures have weakened and need strengthening? --Shiningpikablu252 (talk) 16:08, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Everything appears to be in place. The most likely explanation is that these were humans being paid to post spam, or at least register the accounts, in which case we can only block them and remove the spam as it comes. --Moydow (Support) 00:35, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
