Install <gid> tag extension

Post by dlh »

I'm not quite sure who runs the wiki right now, but…

Could you install this extension I made? It adds a <gid> tag.

Example using the new tag:

Code: Select all

<gid server="g5s-mega-fortress-pro">[email protected], [email protected]</gid>

Expands to: free kill ([email protected]), G5 ([email protected])

Templates can be used to make the syntax more simple: {{LadleGID|[email protected], …}}
Example of live query from the server.

It requires the latest version of MediaWiki (1.16.0), so an upgrade would be needed. The <gid> extension requires a feature added in this version—the ability to expand template arguments.

Steps to install:

1. Upgrade to MediaWiki 1.16.0
2. Place the GID directory in the extensions directory
3. At the end of LocalSettings.php add require_once( "$IP/extensions/GID/GID.php" );
4. Done

It doesn't seems to work with @ct and @pru because they add additional "ranks"

i.e: ... pru/leader

I may just be slow, but what purpose does this serve? When do you use it?

Also, it's probably time to switch to using global IDs instead of names on the Challenge Board. I can make a MediaWiki plugin to expand the GID to the form of “Screen name ([email protected])” (*the screen name would be found from This can be used until/if we switch to some other competition management system.
