Revision as of 15:53, 3 October 2018 by Martinss (talk | contribs) (Vandalism)

Today I've upgraded MediaWiki to 1.31. It has quite a few new features, you can see here: Also looking into changing the theme a bit to something more modern. If you guys have any ideas, post them here. Also, on the homepage I see the "Template:NUMBEROFVIEWS" isn't showing correctly, please resolve that. --PJK (talk) 10:53, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

It looks like the "Template:NUMBEROFVIEWS" has been deleted from MediaWiki 3 years ago. See [1] and [2]. I suggest using "... and contibute to our 41,653 edits." with template {{NUMBEROFEDITS}}. Regards, --Martinss (talk) 21:09, 28 August 2018 (UTC)
Moreover, this version of the main page isn't showing correctly on my (wide) screen [3]. I just edited it (using the more modern version I made a while ago). Undo if you think it's necessary. Regards, --Martinss (talk) 21:09, 28 August 2018 (UTC)


Several aricles has been deleted yesterday by User:Dsiuth_swaed (vandalism). Could someone restore them ? Here are the concerned pages : Cross,, 3x3x3 Blindfolded, Wiki, Alexander Lau, Gilles Roux, Gans, US Nationals and Open 2008 --Martinss (talk) 11:52, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Working on it, though when I go back to Restore the deletion log I'm getting "Some or all of the undeletion failed: Invalid or missing revision.
You may have a bad link, or the revision may have been restored or removed from the archive."
Annoying. Looking into it now. --PJK (talk) 14:46, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
I found some old revisions in the Wayback Machine and copy them here: Gilles Roux/old revision, Cross/old_revision. Also, it seems that registred users cannot edit the "broken" pages (Cross, Wiki, Alexander Lau, Gilles Roux, US Nationals and Open 2008) (getting "edits conflict"). --Martinss (talk) 21:33, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
I was thinking that route worse case, but want to figure out why I'm having this issue. 2 questions you may know the answer to: 1) how can we prevent this issue from happening again? and 2) Registered users can't edit "broken" pages, what do I need to do to solve this? I've searched and don't see any options to adjust this. I know the basics of Mediawiki but otherwise new to it. --PJK (talk) 03:49, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
I don't know many things about wikis too but I found this : according to Mediawiki website, this could be Database inconsistencies (maybe due to errors during Mediawiki update). There are a script to solve this (FindAnomalies.php). Someone else had a similar problem after update (here) and the given solution is PopulateRevisionSha1.php. I can't really help more... --Martinss (talk) 15:53, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Better Homepage?

Having a look at another puzzle wiki,, the homepage has a list of facts and a bit easier navigation for new people to the site. I like the layout and format. Should we modify this homepage to be a bit more inviting or leave it as is? --PJK (talk) 08:37, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

I (just) started something : User:Martinss/Better main page. Is that the kind of things you think of ? --Martinss (talk) 21:36, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
That looks better I think, though on mobile the alignment is a bit off. Looking good - we just need to focus on making it responsive. --PJK (talk) 03:22, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
