Problems importing xml into templatewiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This has been trivial to import into sdiywiki and templatewiki as it should be, but when I try to import it into templatewiki it stalls for an hour or more at "Waiting for template.miraheze.org..."

This isn't the first time I've posted about this bug with templatewiki, e.g. T2693 and T2774

Maybe (first exporting the content) delete the wiki and create a new one with the same name to fix the problem? It's still early days so there won't be too much work lost.

Two hours later, when I opened templatewiki in another browser window: "Import failed: * Loss of session data. You might have been logged out. Please verify that you're still logged in and try again. If it still does not work, try logging out and logging back in, and check that your browser allows cookies from this site."

Again with a similar file the error: "503 Backend fetch failed"

Unfortunately that didn't fix it. It's still an awkward struggle to import tiny xml files into templatewiki :-(.

I've just had the file import without a problem.

Great to hear.
