I have read somewhere that the css file will use fixed width for a while so changing the search button width from 4em to 6em will fix that small issue.

[edit] CAPTCHAs that won't go away

Aseigo suggested that I ask you about this. Everytime I make an edit, it claims that I am adding a URL, and wants me to do some math. Is it even supposed to do this to registered users? In any case, most times I am not adding a url at all, and I tire of the systems inordinate appetite for elementary arithmetic. Can this be fixed? Thanks. --Axiom 20:27, 28 March 2007 (CEST)

[edit] {{file}}

As you asked me, I removed all the occurrences of {{file}} with {{path}}, and removed the obsolete template {{file}}. -- pino 02:16, 29 May 2007 (CEST)

There is also a template called {{module}} for KDE modules (kdelibs, kdebase), etc. I initially used path here, too, and thought that's enough. It's not widely used, only by 2 articles. Maybe we should replace it by path again? What do you think? --Dhaumann 09:14, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
I agree. --Danimo 09:28, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
Or maybe link it to the module page in the apidocs (e.g kdelibs)? --milliams 14:47, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
Good idea, {{kdelibs}}, {{kdebase}} etc... +1 from my side :) --Dhaumann 15:11, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
Sounds good. Or how about {{module|foo}} linking to http://api.kde.org/4.0-api/foo-apidocs/? I don't know how flexible this method is though? --milliams 19:41, 29 May 2007 (CEST)
+1 on milliams' idea --pino 21:35, 29 May 2007 (CEST)


[edit] Assistance needed for new contributor to Techbase

Hi. My name is Thor, I am a new contributor to KDE and I am looking to provide some help with regard to one of the KDE Games, KTuberling (The Potato dude). I am a Polyglot, and work in many different languages, and I have noticed on issues of KTuberling that even with correct software in place, certain speech selections do not function (Notably; Serbian and Danish). I have been working on these for a while and would like to obtain source code for the Tuberling to try and correct the error. Could you tell me please how I find out who is working on what, and what they are doing to it? Thanks and Regards. ThunderGod 15:40, 30 December 2007 (CET)

The best place to find assistance with this is by visiting the #kdegames or #kde-edu channels on irc.freenode.org or by sending an joining the KDE Games mailing list at https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-games-devel. I believe tsdgeos (Albert Astals Cid) is the best person to speak to. --milliams 17:13, 30 December 2007 (CET)

[edit] More readable URLs

At the moment all links on this site are in the form http://techbase.kde.org/index.php?title=Development/Tutorials. I think it would make the site much more readable to convert these links into something like http://techbase.kde.org/Development/Tutorials. Now, as you can see, if you click on that link it does indeed work and takes you to the same page (so you've obviously got mod_rewrite working correctly) so the problem is that mediawiki itself isn't formatting it's links to take advantage of this. I think you basically need to do step 2 from here. --milliams 14:53, 18 April 2008 (CEST)

It seems this is working now. Thanks a lot :) --milliams 14:34, 28 April 2008 (CEST)

[edit] Remove my account

Please remove my account; i'd like to choose another username. Thank you. KRF

Mediawiki has no concept of user account deletion, since that would mess up the history. Just create a new user and add redirects from your current user accounts user page. --Danimo 17:55, 20 April 2008 (CEST)

Okay, would be nice if you could make my username uppercase then... Some database tweaking maybe? ;). No need to answer this, you can remove my entry when you've read it. Thank you anyway. KRF

[edit] Hidden search button text in french localized ktechbase

When switching ktechbase language to french the button search text is really too small. I have read somewhere that the css file will use fixed width for a while so changing the search button width from 4em to 6em will fix that small issue.

[edit] The problem with images in article

When adding the existing image file i can't save the whole article.

Article: http://techbase.kde.org/Projects/Plasma/Plasmoids_(ru)

Adding image (ex. kickoff.png), typing the code, saving and got "http://techbase.kde.org/index.php?title=Projects/Plasma/Plasmoids_(ru)&action=submit" and  a blank page. When i reload a page, i've got old text back, without any changes. Using Firefox 3.0. Can save only the text. What can we do about it? Thanks.

[edit] Where can I post a patch?

My article on building the dependencies for KDE-4.x:

http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build/KDE4/LFS#QCA-2.0.2_.28crypto_add_on_for_Qt.29

requires a patch for a file that will not build. Is there somewhere on the TechBase site where I can post this? Currently it is linked to my private web site and I would rather not have that.

[edit] Database configuration bug

See e.g. <URL:http://techbase.kde.org/Z%C5%82ocie%C5%84>:

Database error

A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was:

(SQL query hidden)

from within function "Article::pageData". MySQL returned error "1267: Illegal mix of collations (latin1_bin,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_unicode_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '=' (localhost)".

This should never happen, compare <URL:http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Z%C5%82ocie%C5%84>. This problem will prevents Wiki for having non-Western-European page names in translations. The most probable cause is a misconfiguration of the database engine; however, it is also worth noting that the current MediaWiki software is 1.16 whereas you are using 1.14 (from HTML metadata, otherwise unmentioned), so maybe it would be time to upgrade?
