De Kolta vanishing bird cage

There's two articles on the same subject that need to be merged. I should probably do it myself, but it's likely that I mess things up instead :) These are the ones: --TStone 19:08, 17 February 2009 (EST)

Merged. Thanks!!!!
No problem! :) --TStone 20:30, 17 February 2009 (EST)

Annoying Cite Bug

I just added an article on the Multiplying Bottles, and almost lost all the text due to some bug in the Cite function. Don't know if you are the one to tell, but I guess you know better than me whom to report to.

This is the function I mean: which Brad apparantly added last year, according to the MagicPedia Development page.

The error message, in full, was:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wfloadextensionmessages() in /home/geniimag/public_html/wiki/extensions/Cite/Cite_body.php on line 116

Fortunately, my text was saved in the browser cache, so I could rescue it. For now, until the bug is fixed, I've replaced the "ref"s with (n) and a numbered list in the article. --TStone 20:30, 17 February 2009 (EST)

I know. He did the install, but the version of mediaWiki is too old. He needs to upgrade mediaWiki for it to work. He's been a bit too busy to do it. But some day, hopefully. It is very annoying. Joe 20:35, 17 February 2009 (EST)
Ah, I understand. It's always a hassle to upgrade PHP-code. Then perhaps a temporary warning at the MP Dev page? Or at the "Editing Help" page? A pity to lose articles if an author don't have the stamina to re-type a contribution
Good idea. Will do.
Sorry, I already added a warning at the MP Dev page :)--TStone 20:50, 17 February 2009 (EST)
No problem. I also added "If you want to manually add footnotes, you can use the html superscript command <sup>1</sup> to get1". Joe 20:54, 17 February 2009 (EST)

MediaWiki Upgrade

I'm working with WebMaster Brad to upgrade MediaWiki, so Cite will work. I'll put a notice on the Main Page when MagicPedia will be temporarily down as soon as I know. Joe 08:03, 20 February 2009 (EST)
