Known issues:

  • Forum:Watercooler doesn't show forums: this should fix itself once the job queue sorts itself out
  • language links
  • the number of articles is reported as 417

Galleries (SOLVED)[edit]

Some images don't appear in galleries, but the image exists, such as on the Raging Long Legs page. Pikmin1254 21:24, 17 September 2010 (EDT)

They just needed the File: prefix added. --Porplemontage 01:14, 18 September 2010 (EDT)
Hmm, I don't know if that's a change Wikia made, because it's not listed in MW's release notes - but it seems file: was supported at Wikia too, so not all galleries are broken. I guess the rest will have to be fixed. GP
Fixed them all. GP

Dismiss Page gone. (SOLVED)[edit]

What more is there to say? Ridly Roar! 06:30, 22 September 2010 (EDT)

What's 'Dismiss Page'? GP

Heh sorry. We have NEVER had a page for idle pikmin or dismissing pikmin. We might want to add that. Ridly Roar! 05:48, 28 September 2010 (EDT)

Oh. Well, this is more for things that were fine at the old wiki, but broken here. New page propositions should go [[Pikipedia:Requested articles|here]], but I think all that is at Pikmin family, so if you want it to have its own article, use that page's talk. GP

I'm sorry, I though ti had seen a page for Idle Pikmin at the old wiki and there was not one here. My minor confusion. Ridly Ridly's NEw Siggy Screech! 20:48, 28 September 2010 (EDT)

Ah, OK. GP

Active Users (SOLVED)[edit]

The statistics say that there are -1 Active Users. Turtwig A 08:54, 25 September 2010 (EDT)

Update: I think this is caused by importing of pages. There is one more user that edited the wikia version between three months ago and hasn't registered here than a user who has registered here and shows up on the active users list. Importing would cause them to appear in the history, but not on the Active List as the latter is only based on edits to this URL. Turtwig A 17:19, 25 September 2010 (EDT)
A couple of things are broken at special:statistics. I'm going to wait until the job count there goes right down (its highest was 40,000, and it's reduced on every page view, so it should just be a few more days), and if they're not fixed then, look into it. GP

Videos (SOLVED)[edit]

In the old wiki we had videos (displayed with [[Video:XYZ]]). Unless there's an installable addon that re-enables videos, we need to embed them all with HTML. Example of a page with broken videos. {EspyoT} 17:52, 26 September 2010 (EDT)

Will be done when we get an extension installed (so that videos can be resized and aligned right). I've asked Porplemontage. GP
Done. GP

(SOLVED)[edit]

you need to make a new account

Wha? Who? GP
He/she seems to think that having to remake the account is an error.--Prezintenden

When logged out (SOLVED)[edit]

Some of the sidebar is missing, and language links fail. I'll speak to Porple if no-one has any ideas. GP

...Apparently fixed? Maybe it was a one-time thing... GP

No math extension (SOLVED)[edit]

I've noticed on some pages that the <math> tags don't work. We should add the math extension or whatever it's called. Vol (Talk)

Can you think of any legitimate use cases? Every single current usage is on a talk page, and doesn't even use any real LaTeX syntax - they're all even simple enough that they make perfect sense without the tag. I don't think we need it. GP
Calling this solved since no-one replied. GP
