Void added a comment to T12072: Graylog is broken.

As a short follow up, I've disabled the EventLogging and LinkCache mediawiki logging channels as they were generating a significant portion of our logs while not actually providing any relevant information.

Void closed T12072: Graylog is broken as Resolved.

Looks like the indexes got too large and graylog stopped adding new data. I've manually deleted the oldest index, and will probably clear out the others as well.

Void added a comment to T12006: Visual Editor is working in Main namespace .

In general we should probably be using the third strict arg to in_array( $, $, true ) but you refactored them out in this case.

While technically correct, using in_array here was always incorrect as it was supposed to be searching for a key in the array instead of a value. This could have been caused by a change in how overridedefault was done somewhere else and was never accounted for here.

Since we also need to save false values to disable VE in those 4 namespaces listed in the initial report above, I don't think this will work, but maybe I'm reading it wrong?

It didn't seem to be a problem in my testing, given that the code is specifically for setting the wgSetting value inside of the JSON cache, which unpacked into MediaWiki configuration by CreateWiki elsewhere. Either this happens after any default settings by VisualEditor, or VisualEditor doesn't merge the default as long as something is configured. Not really sure which, but it also might be best to set the value as false in case upstream does something that changes this behavior (or disabling it in all namespaces results in the default settings being used).

Void added a comment to T12006: Visual Editor is working in Main namespace .

Ah, figured out the cause is in_array( NS_SPECIAL, $additional[$var]['overridedefault'] ), due to some PHP "magic", in_array(-1, [1 => true, "default" => false]) returns true. This causes this line to insert a value in an unexpected manner. I'm overhauling this bit of code to hopefully make it a bit cleaner.

Huh, looks like the config is being saved as the wrong thing somehow? Not even sure how that's possible, ManageWiki shouldn't be inserting an int like that, especially not -1???

Void added a comment to T10683: Changes to current CreateWiki response system.

I'm wondering if we could just make canned responses a MediaWiki interface page similar to MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown. Alternately, changing the form field from selectorother to combobox may work to make the canned responses editable in the form itself.

Void added a comment to T11832: DISPLAYTITLE broken.

This appears to be caused by the DisplayTitle extension. As it forces the link text of a page link to be that page's displaytitle property, unexpected behavior can (and does) happen when the interface is not expecting HTML in the link text.
