These are old bugs from the Bug Reports entry previous to the massive wikispot upgrade.

New bugs should be filed at Bug Reports, while these need to be confirmed as still existing.

First bug: Numbered lists "eat" the first formatting (as in CAFF, try to make the "titles" on the numbered list italic. The very first italic markup is ignored. Second bug: The following should be a numbered list, but is coming up as a bulleted list. (And is now coming up again as a numbered list, but doesn't have the initial bug... ARG!!!). VERY hard to reproduce these errors, but numbered lists seem to be fragile.

This is tricky. The page in question has an [[Include]] on it, and so it's showing you the old version of the page, but the current version of the included page. I'll add this to the long-term desired fixes list, but this isn't high priority because it's a special case.

  • Bug description: The site logo, when updated, won't appear unless the browser cache is refreshed. Either the headers need to return the date of the last revision (so the browser fetches the new version), or you can append a GET with the latest revision as part of the URL to the sitelogo (thus changing the URL and forcing a new retrieval).

Timestamping the url will work, telling the client the date of the latest won't (that's what we do now — clients don't fetch always)

We were recording the X-Forwarded-For header in some cases. This can be spoofed. Should be fixed now.

    • His edit never showed up on Recent Changes, although it does appear in the entry info page.
    • Although the notice about changes being merged appeared, my version overwrote his with no merging or "manual merge notice" appearing in the saved revision.
      • Did he really save at the same time? The Info page says he made the page on 2006-04-23 16:20:44. So, perhaps this is an issue with the page status: it showed up as non-existent even though it exists. It's hard for me to look at this right now because Davis Wiki isn't running the new code and I don't have a stable net connection to use to convert Davis Wiki over right now. —PhilipNeustrom

There are several references to it in the content of the Wiki. Either the content should be changed or the URL fixed.

  • Bug description: I tried to revert Cameron's deletion on the page but it says "An error occurred while reverting the page." Here's the URL


Can't reproduce. Please explain which version you intended to revert to and which version you saw that you wanted to revert from. This example URL doesn't make sense to me because it is a revert to version 82. Version 82 is the version in which you added the text back in yourself http://daviswiki.org/Abortion/Debate?action=diff&version2=82&version1=81

Cameron deleted sperm and ova, i tired to revert to add these definitions back. The first time i tried to revert, it gave me a traceback. I tried again, and it said "An error occurred while reverting the page." At first I thought it was the text I used in the reason for revert, but after trying several different configs, nothing worked. I think you tried reverting after SteveO added some comments.

Where does the deletion occur? I need to know exactly what version you wanted to revert to and exactly what version of the page you were looking at prior to your attempted revert. Also, if you have the traceback that would be useful.

I don't have the trace back, and now I really wish I did. I think there might be a problem with the diff viewer. It looked as if Cameron had deleted sperm and ova, not made a comment. When I tried to revert his edit, it errored. Now when I look at info, it looks like I just didn't add sperm and ova back to the list of deffs, and Cameron made a comment as opposed to making a deletion.

Delete this entry? Page no longer exists, but if there is a bug that was detected while on this page, perhaps the entry should remain.

  • Bug description: Recent changes is showing the wrong amount of time that has lapsed since some pages were last edited. See the attached screenshot for an example. Notice that the Varsity Theater page was edited more recently than the Regency Arms Townhouse Apartments page, but it has a timestamp that makes the edit look older. The bigger issue is that all edits shown in the example image should be about six hours older than shown (it appears that the hour parts of the timestamps have been left off on a number of the entries).

(Additionally, Recent Changes appears to be somehow frozen. When I submitted this bug report, the edit doesn't show up in Recent Changes).

I think the system clock was changed this morning, and was changed by many many minutes. Edits are currently showing up in the future, and clicking clear observed changes shows a time in the past (and just now, as I type this to see which way the clock went, it's now clearing). Basically, I'm pointing out that the server seems to have changed it's mind as to what time it is (twice now... somebody is probably working on this)JabberWokky

I see this when using Safari, but it's actually not related to the preview-vs-non-preview. Clear your cache completely and refresh the page and you should be able to see it on the normal page, too. It has to do with when Safari decides to draw the horiziontal line. In this case, the images load after the line does and the line is rendered assuming that the image will take up so much space. After the images download the line is not re-adjusted. I don't see this problem in Firefox. If someone knows of a way to make this work properly in Safari then please chime in, but otherwise I'm not sure what to do. We could have ----- "clear," so to speak, the same way that section headings do, but I'm not sure this is a good solution.

  • Bug description: This isn't really a bug because nothing's broken, but an interesting anomaly. When I Davis Medical Center I saved the map point before I saved the actual page. The map point appeared first in recent changes, but in all lower case. Then when I saved the page, a second, Title Cased Version (the way I named the page when creating it) appeared. I'm not sure why this is happening, the map point is Title Cased when you look at the map.

I see a comment on the expanded (between version x and version y) view but not the normal ?action=diff view.

I can't reproduce this..but if this sort of thing happens again, make a note.

It works, but you need to make sure you type the file name in correctly. In this case it seems to be "capay2.JPG" not "capay2.jpg" Was it ".jpg" on your hard drive? Did it get turned into ".JPG" when you uploaded it? In the future we can try and make the filenames case insensitive..

  • hmmm... that must be it. I've never had it happen before, so I'm wondering if this case sensativity started with the wikiupgrades? I'll try that if I have the problem again. Thanks! -Janelle

I don't know what this is about.PhilipNeustrom

Not entirely a bug because it's intended (e.g. the nice error message). I just don't have the time to make multiple thumbnails of the same image work right now. They worked before but only because on every page view the macro re-generated the thumbnail for the second-third-etc thumbnails. Workaround: upload the same image more than once in these cases.PhilipNeustrom

  • Problem: I loaded Halema Buzayan to make a comment and decided to press Edit to look at the source. I canceled the edit and applied my comment. The result was that the page was badly trashed. I reverted the page and reapplied my comment. See edit #136 in the revision history.

I'm not saying that is not a bug, but if you just want to read the source, you can go to info, then raw of the version you want. -NickSchmalenberger

  • Problem: Problem with typing underscores for spaces in the "name" and "name label" formats for wiki links. Doesn't link correctly when typing underscores, even though underscores are what appear in the URL bar.

    • We allow for limited markup in some areas of the site to prevent madness from ensuing (e.g. on the Events Board). How about in these areas we filter out non-working markup by having it not display? So [[macros]] and things like =headings= would just have their magic [['s and ='s stripped?

Map-related bugs

  • Problem: The Java map loads fast but Firefox crashes. This happens most of the time, especially when I try to edit it or press the back button.
    • I have this same problem. I suspect it's a problem with Firefox on OS X, which is really unstable. I love Firefox but it crashes really often. However, I can't use the map at all in Firefox, and I'll point this out to Mike tonight. For now the alternative is to use Safari, which never seems to crash on the map stuff at all.PhilipNeustrom
    • My impression is that it is a problem with applets on OS X in general. While Safari uses JRE 1.4.x made by Apple, Firefox and other browsers cannot integrate this JRE on OS X and use 1.3.x instead. I will try a few things, such as rebuilding the applet with the 1.3 JDK. Meanwhile, you might want to have a look at the Java Embedding Plugin, which allows Firefox, Camino, and others to use the latest JRE. Let me know if this helps at all. - MikeIvanov

  • Page showing bug: Log in
  • Bug description: I created an User account several months ago and for some reason I cannot log in. I entered my email account but nothing gets emailed. I had to create a new fake account to be able to post a question here. How can I get my old account back? I cannot re-register because the system recognizes my email address. I am lost in a futile loop
    • Alfredo, please contact me regarding this bug. I need your email address in order to troubleshoot. It's probably easiest if you email me at graham.freeman@cernio.com . Thanks! —GrahamFreeman
    • Update: Alfredo gave me the email address he was using. I searched the SMTP logs and found three entries in approximately the right time frame that indicate that Hotmail probably lost or spam-bucketed the password reset messages. Hotmail sucks - use Gmail instead! —GrahamFreeman
