Magelo Pages

There are both Magelo Blue:Loramin and Magelo Blue:Magelo Blue:Loramin, can I delete one? --Ravhin (talk) 21:22, 4 January 2014 (UTC)

Sure, dunno how I got Magelo Blue:Magelo Blue:Loramin

Test

Hello pal, I moved your Test page in your personal sandbox: User_talk:Loramin/sandbox. Maximum (talk) 22:47, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Duplicate Page

I was going through the Thurgadin armour quests and found that Bard has a duplicate page.
The proper one Bard Thurgadin Armor Quests
The duplicate Thurgadin Bard Armor Quest
They have some minor differences wasn't sure what to do.

Pages w/ Missing Auction Tracker Boxes

Hey Loramin- I know Ravhin isn't really around so I'm not sure who else to bring this up to. I've been trying my best to keep the prices updated on the wiki and identify item pages that are missing the auction box. I've posted this to Rav's user page as well since he did fix a handfull of these last year.


List of Pages that need price info on them:

Re: Pages w/ Missing Auction Tracker Boxes

I actually got a PM from Ravhin in September last year, so while I don't know the details it seems like he's still around to some degree. You could always try PMing him.

I've actually been wondering about the items that are missing their auction tracker too, but unfortunately to find the answer (without Ravhin's help) you have to understand the PHP code he wrote, and since PHP is a language I'm not a big fan of I haven't wanted to spend the time/energy.

If you (or someone you know) knows PHP though you can download his code by clicking the "Custom Extensions Source" link at http://wiki.project1999.com/utils/wikiUtils.php. The auction tracker code has its own folder, and it should explain how the tracker does what it does (and thus why it leaves out certain items).

--Loramin (talk) 01:28, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

So I looked through the AuctionTracker folder and while I'm very rusty in parsing code of any kind it seems like the PHP files in there are for the machinery of the tracker and not the embedded call on the item pages to pull that applet. The one thing that might be it is if the subset of items that are missing the tracker box are not in the Lucy database it's referencing as part of a log parse then I guess that would explain it. My best guess is that there are two templates for new item pages and one has the tracker, and one doesn't so that's why only a small subset of item pages are missing it. I might try to create some duplicate item pages to see if I can figure out if that's the case...

--Helpr (talk) 21:48, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

I've tried playing around with the wiki markup on the auction-less pages, but haven't had much luck myself. Hope you have better luck :)

--Loramin (talk) 01:39, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

No luck on my end either... seems to be something with the back end in how it takes the wiki markup to create the page since the wiki code the new item tool spits out is essentially the same regardless whether the item will end up with an auction box or not... you can see the missing chunk of code in if you look at the rendered pages source code of items with and without the auction box. Unfortunately we're getting to the limits of my coding knowledge... Do you know if there are any other active admins we could reach out to for ideas?

Otherwise I'll just continue pulling together a list of pages that are missing the box with the hope that some future whippersnapper comes along to figure it out :)

Just Ravhin :(

Where art thou Ravhin~~

Wiki Code

There are a few things that maybe you have the knowledge to address that I don't first it seems someone has been uploading quite a number of outrageous auction tracker prices (eg Sarnak_Battle_Shield) and the ability to trim the outliers is current set to off Trim Outliers can we turn that on, or is that a Ravhin ability?.

Secondly on the page Category:Deity Worshiper Equipment and its subcategories when you hover over most links you get the error "AjaxHoverHelper Error 2." and it often obscures the links.

Lastly I think I have fixed this one but it seems the Template:Item Lore was causing issues with the Special:ClassSlotEquip and Special:DynamicZoneList reaping data correctly. I edited the Item Lore Template and hopefully when the Dynamic lists repopulate it will fix itself. I know it takes a few days do you know when it repopulates by anychance? --Zosymandias (talk) 16:10, 5 March 2019 (UTC)


Re: Wiki Code

   ability to trim the outliers is current set to off  Trim Outliers can we turn that on, or is that a Ravhin ability?

That's all Ravhin (or technically anyone could change the PHP code to Rogean and ask him to deploy it, but Ravhin has both the knowledge and ability to change his own code PLUS I'm pretty sure he has the power to deploy it himself, so if at all possible you'll want to talk to him).

Personally my thought is that we should make the Auction Tracker correction page(s) wiki admin-only. That way admins can still fix things, but non-admins can't abuse the system to inflate prices (which I'm pretty sure is why it was turned off in the first place).

   Secondly on the page Category:Deity Worshiper Equipment and its subcategories when you hover over most links you get the error "AjaxHoverHelper Error 2." and it often obscures the links.

Thanks for catching that; I just fixed it (you may need to refresh or even clear cache to see the fix). What was going on is that I added mouse-over item links to all the equipment categories awhile back, so you didn't have to click on each item in a category to see it. However my code confused by that category, because it had "Equipment" in the title, but didn't have item pages (and it's ironic because I created that category).

   hopefully when the Dynamic lists repopulate it will fix itself.  I know it takes a few days do you know when it repopulates by anychance?

I don't, but I'm glad to hear you found a fix. If it doesn't repopulate itself soon, I think the answer is ... unfortunately ... Ravhin.

Hope that helps.
