Page Forms fields Default option no longer working
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Page Forms are no longer loading their Default values when making new pages. The Free Text input for Page Forms are also not loading, both for new pages and when using the forms to edit existing pages. Have there been any significant changes to the Page Forms extension or is it just not functioning properly at this time?

This is for nms.miraheze.org
As an example: https://nms.miraheze.org/wiki/Form:Starship_Form

Thanks in advance!

Event Timeline

Can confirm the same thing's happening on my wiki. To give an example: Save a page with free text via form, and the free text just up-and-disappears. For the time being, any existing pages may have to be edited the traditional editbox way.

This bug may be related to this recent GitHub fix, which I assume Miraheze's composer system hasn't recognised yet.

Updated PageForms.

Ertosi raised the priority of this task from High to Needs Triage.

As per the original post, Page Forms are still not loading Default values when making new pages, nor are their Free Text inputs loading.

Is there anything else needed for yesterday's update to PageForms to take effect on individual wikis?

As my last comment was edited by a bad actor, I'll repeat for clarity:

Despite the first attempt to fix by updating the extension, Page Forms are still not loading Default values when making new pages, nor are their Free Text inputs loading.

Is there anything else needed for yesterday's update to PageForms to take effect on individual wikis?

Thank you all for the help keeping everything running on Miraheze. I'm especially appreciative, given all of the extra trouble you must be receiving from other bad actors. Thank you all for giving our wikis a home!

No there isn't anything else you need to do for the update to take effect. You probably want to raise this on https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/mediawiki-extensions-page_forms/.

As suggested, I reported the issue to Page Form's main extension talk page. They confirmed the issue was caused by Page Form's update two months ago and have submitted the fix. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/extensions/PageForms/+/954939

Page Forms will need to be updated to this most recent version here on Miraheze to correct the issue for our wikis.

Redmin edited projects, added Extensions; removed MediaWiki, Infrastructure (SRE).

...Pssst, @Paladox: You might as well look into bumping up PF at this moment (the sooner the better), because the default values can't return soon enough. Please remind me if/when you've gotten to it. (GitHub memo for convenience's sake.)

Meanwhile, I'd like to remind you of another extension that's been causing infrastructural issues on my wiki...but that's for another thread.

@Paladox/@Routhwick, did the update fix this?

@Paladox/@Routhwick, did the update fix this?

Definitely! (I'll try testing out PF on my track listings eventually, but that [along with the AutoCreatePage bug affecting their namespace] is for another venue.)

P.S. Maybe we should introduce a moderation queue here on Phab (à la AVID Wiki) so that disgruntled MH users won't try to wreak havoc on dozens of threads again? (Second time that's happened in two months.)

Almost forgot: This episode--especially at a time when MH is on the verge of upgrading to MW 1.40 (after several months' delay)--was pretty much uncalled for.

Redmin assigned this task to Paladox.

Closing this then; please open another task for the other issue.
