[MediaWiki-l] Forms inside the wiki

chris tharp-2
To whoever,

I'm currently redesigning a wiki I operate (redesigning it in the Foreground skin) and I'm looking to  do something unique, which is:  allow end users to create forms. Right now I allow embedded forms from Google, Jotform, Wufoo and SurveyMonkey (for those wondering how -- google & Survey monkey via the Widgets extension & the other two from the Widgetframework extension), but I would like to allow users the ability to use formatted  templates inside the Wiki to create those forms. Examples of forms I would like are: polls, surveys, order forms, etc.

I could design these forms via the secureHTML extension, but that wouldn't allow the flexibility of allowing users to change the questions, etc. Anyways does anyone have any notions on how to do this?

On another note, can SOMEONE connected with Mediawiki.org fix the Extension Matrix? After all it's only been October 2013 that it hasn't worked.

Note that this is quite a beastie and it requires installing quite a bunch  
of other stuff.

Thanks, but Semantic Forms is not what I was referring to. Semantic forms, which I use, is for editing a Mediawiki page, and the template calls in that page via a Form -- what I was looking for is an easy way to allow page editors to add forms embedded into a page. Those forms could be in turn filled out by the end users (readers) without editing the page. A contact email page would be the clearest and easiest to understand example.

Anyone else have any notions on how this could be done? Thanks

We've been using PostForm.php, but the spambots quickly found it and inundated us. We renamed all such pages with "_(hidden)" appended and removed the automatic #REDIRECT with a page that tells the user to put "_(hidden)" after the URL -- not exactly very user-friendly.

Forms without a CAPTCHA are nothing but trouble.

[MediaWiki-l] PHP 5.5 kills older Wikis

Scheid, Bernhard
In reply to this post by Richard
Several wikis that I administrate have been moved to PHP 5.5.

Only those under MW 1.23 run correctly (fortunately the important ones). Others (kept for documentation or testing) do not show any parsered text. Ironically, you can see the source code though:

Example:
* http://www.univie.ac.at/rel_jap/ryowiki/Hauptseite (MW 1.16, same in MW 1.20)

Any known reason for this, any solution? Does this mean that older Wikis die, when the server moves to PHP 5.5?

Thanks in advance

Bernhard

Probably due to <https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58640>.

This bug was fixed in MW 1.23, as well as in point releases of 1.19.x,  
1.21.x and 1.22.x.

Re: PHP 5.5 kills older Wikis

Scheid, Bernhard
Thank you. I could solve the problems by going to "Include/MagicWord.php" and change the respective "getBaseRegex()" function as advised in https://git.wikimedia.org/patch/mediawiki%2Fcore.git/b9f291e8cd5bb1450f7b1031aa17cf7775aa7e96
This worked in MW 1.20; 1.16; and 1.15
