Upgrading the wiki

Post by Lucifer »

Ok, since Z-man brought this up in a different thread, and some work was needed, well, I figured I'd do the work and start this thread.

First, the upgrade. Z-man said he was going to upgrade to 1.27. Is that correct, Z-man? I hope so, because I made the old armagetronad skin (newly renamed to ArmagetronLegacy) work with mediawiki 1.27. It's marked as requires >= 1.25, though. I checked, and we're still on 1.23.

The old armagetronad just wasn't going to work with 1.27. I really had to basically start from scratch, but here's a screenshot:

I don't have any cleanup or anything to do. What I've done instead, is that in the web project, I've renamed the directories under themes/wiki so they just match what mediawiki is expecting. You could symlink to them from the webroot (that's how I developed them).

So, the current theme has been updated, with a few itches scratched that I had (so probably will make somebody mad, but I fixed some of the outstanding problems I was having, so hey!), and works with mediawiki 1.27. For that, we're clear to upgrade.

I'm going to look into bringing dlh's extensions over into the themes project, but I don't want to build a git-bzr bridge. He's not in irc anymore, anybody know where we can find him to wake him up?

Just checking on how things are going, Lucifer. There is some interest in more tournaments and I would like to capitalize on that to try to get people actually playing the game again. I have some servers up on VPS's that have Anti-DDOS protection, so things can go smoother. I just await the wiki working again.

Still waiting for the motivation to update dlh's extensions, and for z-man to upgrade the wiki software. ;) The second part depends on the first part.

Ok, Lucifer. Repeat after me, as if I were a Jedi using the force. "I am motivated to update DLH's extensions to bring life back to the game that I love and have contributed to."

Actually, we talked about it.

Long story short: nag zman.

I'm bugged, I'm bugged!

Back from vacation, alone for now. The girls only arrive back on Friday, meaning that once I got the house admin stuff out of the way, I should have one or two long evenings available without interruptions. Might work.
