Icon-shortcut.pngShortcut: WW:SR

Server requests are a collection of the main requests for future server and wiki upgrades, and known wiki bugs. This is so that we can organize our wishes and decide upon what upgrades are most required.
We request that before making most additions, please first discuss them on the talk page.

The tech team will not normally check this page - Kirkburn adds requests to the Wikia trac job queue, and they are dealt with in order of priority. Please note, though WoWWiki is Wikia's busiest wiki, there are a lot of other wikis to tend to :)

Possible and probable bugs

  • Make Special:Editcount, when transcluded, equal the actual number, for use in templates. Right now, it doesn't even equal itself:
{{#ifeq:{{Special:Editcount/Pcj}}|{{Special:Editcount/Pcj}}|Matches|Doesn't match}} Matches
  • Possibly related to this, #urlencode doesn't work correctly when using it with Special:Editcount:
{{#urlencode:{{Special:Editcount/Pcj}}}} {{#urlencode:Special:Editcount/Pcj}}
  • Probably because of "Content inside parser tags (such as <nowiki>) is hashed before the parser functions are evaluated, resulting in errors:" http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:ParserFunctions#.23ifeq



  • ImageLink, would probably work better than the <imagelink> parser extension tag we are currently using. The parser extension tag has lots of limitations comparatively. Added as base syntax in MW1.14 -- see Help:Images
  • WoWWiki could probably do with a forum. Done. See Forum:Index

Post 1.12 upgrade

1.12 upgrade

$wgRC2UDPAddress = 'dotted.sytes.net';
$wgRC2UDPPort = 9390;
$wgRC2UDPPrefix = ;
Wikia should be able to set up their own feed after upgrade. Kirkburn  talk  contr 12:55, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
Requested. Kirkburn  talk  contr 16:59, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
  • StringFunctions, would allow for easier categorization of API and other pages with pseudo-namespaces.
  • SVG image upload
  • $wgAllowDisplayTitle = true; (if it's easy to do and upgrading to 1.11 is going to be awhile)
    This is buggy in pre-1.11. Please be patient. The upgrade will happen soonish, really. TOR 16:19, 23 October 2007 (UTC)
  • The "next 200" links on pages with more options than can fit on a single page are not working correctly. This only affects users who are not logged in the website. If you are logged in the link will work fine. for example Category:World of Warcraft uncommon items has 2 pages but when not logged in you cannot get to the 2nd page.

Pre 1.12


Adjusted {{tooltip}}, none of those workarounds should be implemented. -- foxlit 08:50, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
  • [edit] links sometimes being pushed down by images and right-floats on FF2. Cause unknown. This is sourced on bugzilla ([3])...Not fixable See Wikipedia:How to fix bunched-up edit links
  • Redirects to other wikia sites appear as broken redirects. Wikia-wide issue
  • Newuserlog
    • This isn't compatible with Wikia's systems, because of the way our user database is set up
  • Sidebar changes:
    • Better Google/Wikia ad presentation - should match sidebar in border, colours (sidebar needs changes anyway).
    • Wikia spotlight has "google ads" heading.
    • A link via an asterisk (*) to WoWWiki:Searching in the Monobook search box.
      • Since moving to Monaco skin, not on priority list. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:47, 26 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Imagelink extension not linking to anchors on page, thus: <imagelink>Temp.png|Portal:Main#Test</imagelink> links to the top of the page, not passing the anchor ID. (This may possibly be fixed by updating the extension as requested above).
