Bugs and Problems

A14 Named Junctions

The first junction should be Catthorpe but instead it appears as Dock Spur (which happens to be the name of the last junction). I've looked at the source code and it appears correct, so I don't know why the wrong name is being rendered on the page. --Median 10:34, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

I think I've fixed that now - it's a common issue that I'd forgotten about, but hopefully that will now be solved. Could people check it's OK before I roll out the change to other junction list pages? Steven 11:37, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Citing sources

How do I cite sources, like how I do it on Wikipedia? Unfortunately the ref tags don't work here and I was going to use the ref tags to expand Philips Lighting. --Little owl (talk) 16:32, 5 March 2018 (UTC)

You can see how I've done it on C120 - currently I can't think of a better way. I would like the functionality from wikipedia to be ported, which I assume is just porting templates, but I haven't been able to figure out what to to date. C2r (talk) 16:50, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
I know this wiki is using a very old version of MediaWiki, and importing Wikipedia templates requires the GeoData and Scribunto extensions from MediaWiki. --Little owl (talk) 11:44, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

We can't just import Wikipedia templates, just as ours can't be copied there. The differing licenses don't allow it. Steven (talk) 17:03, 6 March 2018 (UTC)

Sorry, perhaps templates is the wrong word... mediawiki 1.21 and above comes with extension:cite which has templates built into it. This wouln't be importing wikipedia templates but making use of later mediawiki templates I think. We're running mediawiki 1.20.5 so don't have these currently C2r (talk) 22:34, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
The Cite extension is exactly what I need, but it does require SABRE to upgrade to at least MediaWiki 1.27.4 or later since 1.20.5 is no longer supported - bear in mind that some extensions listed in Special:Version are also no longer supported or have better replacements. --Little owl (talk) 13:10, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

With the upgrade now complete, I think now is the time to bring in the Cite, GeoData and Scribunto extensions. --Little owl (talk) 11:56, 2 May 2018 (BST)

It's on the list - we're still fiddling with templates to make everything work the way it did before the upgrade at the moment, but it's something I'll be targeting shortly after the appointed officers for the year are put in place following the recent elections - assuming I'm still one, of course!
