Wiki Editor Bugging Out

Question

So, I've been working on the wiki a lot lately and for the most post I haven't thought much of it; however, it seems to be happening more often. While editing, every once in a while the editor will not load properly as seen in the image below. You can still edit and save your work without issue; however, I just thought I'd mention it in case it's something that actually should be looked into.

Issues like this are generally due to javascript not fully loading. Can you think of something you are doing that may interrupt a full page load? Also, what browser are you using? Any plugins for said browser that may interfere with scripts from loading, or any security software recently installed?

 

I've tested a few pages and haven't seen an issue yet.

This kind of thing happens to me now and then as well .. Firefox, normal editing. Probably just due to MW inefficiencies.

 

I also hate the wait to load the editor. It first loads and then 'loads again'. This happens every single time, and I am wondering if it is a setting in my prefs. I have tried to fix to no avail. Again, the editor loads, I begin typing, and it loads again, with a slight format change (wider window I think, and I lose my first micro-edits... really a PITA).

 

now and again, it fails to load our styled full editor as Tech notes above.

 

 

Anyone that does a lot of wiki editing will notice.

Only happens every once in a while I'm doing some quick edits and uploading compares to the wiki. Using Firefox (v33) and minimal plugins. Nothing new that would result in this new behavior. Security software is Microsoft Security Essentials. I mainly just ignore it.

I have not noticed anything like that and I was editing a ton last weekend.

The only thing is that it does sometimes take quite awhile(6+ sec) for it to load the page after submitting a new edit but that could be my own problem.

I use Chrome

Saving a big page just takes awhile and is just the nature of updating all of the Semantic stuff and associated content I think.

 

... what browser hishutup?

I use Chrome

Yes I know its memory Hungry

 

 

I have actually gotten a few 504's within the last week. Sometimes the wiki seems to...crawl.

 

I've gotten one, I think... Which ever one is the gateway could not be located or something rather....

The long load time after saving is due to the Wiki rebuilding the page cache which it has to do after every edit, as well as saving information for the edit (diff of changes) for the history. It's what allows regular page views afterwards to be much faster.

 

504 errors are due to timeouts, which could be at any point in the chain from the web server, to the database. For those that get 504 errors, do they occur during specific time ranges, or are they random?

for me absolutely random except it happens to both the wiki and the forums and will last about 30 sec... Like the site is refreshing something...

 

Google an other load up just fine...

 

 

 

EDIT: I should clarify in the 30 sec I load up a page and it takes awhile to load and then gives up, I then refresh and it just waits until it finally loads

I never get 504 (or only once or twice in the past).

 

The buggy editor render is what irks me.

I just did 50 page edits on random pages and didn't see an issue. The editor loads lightening quick each time.

 

One guess is a cache issue, in that the javascript is not caching in your browsers. For firefox you can check the following by typing "about:config" in the address bar. Click the button that says you will be careful, and search for the following settings:

 

network.http.use-cache

browser.cache.offline.enable

 

They should both be true.

 

If they are true, will have to brainstorm a little more.

 

EDIT: If any of you get to the point that the Wiki Editor display is reproducible, you might want to open up the debugger (Ctrl-Shift-S) and profile a page load.

I've experienced what hishutup is explaining as well. Site seems to simply crawl at a snail's pace for up to a minute or two and then returns to normal. Rest of the web works as normal. It's just STEP that does it once in a while.

 

Both those values are set to true for me.

I think its who ever is hosting the site is rebooting something... 

I don't do server stuff but like a firewall or a switch is being reset...

 

For me its rare like every week or more

      When posting a mod suggestion for inclusion into STEP, the 'warning' text states to consider creating a modpage on the wiki for the mod, but no reason is given as to why it might be preferable to do this.
       
      Perhaps the reason(s) could be included - it would be more persuasive, at least.
       
      Thanks.

      Before we upgrade the wiki, we'll be performing some periodic cleaning and updating of pages, templates, etc. This includes several actions:
      Users may notice some changes to content, formatting of content, template styling, etc. Anything that is deemed no longer desired/needed will be deleted without notice.All "Pack" content will be removed. As such, users may notice things missing from their pages or old templates being converted to newer ones. Any of this is done due to the cleanup. Any missing user content will be the result of it being too much maintenance to fix things such as broken links, which fill out our maintenance reports. Such content obviously isn't being maintained and will simply be removed. Anything that is questionable will be added to the Candidates for deletion category.Users can check this category for any pages that we're considering removing. Please see the individual page's talk page for discussion regarding the content removal. Anything that is considered outdated, but is neither being considered for deletion or updating, will be added to the Archives category.  

      Not all updates will be recorded below, but periodic updates will be posted from time to time.
       
      Updated STEP Content
      Anthology Boilerplate Updated Templates
      Archived Delete alert (new) alert small (new) icon (new) Updated General Content
      All content has been assigned a category. All content on the wiki should receive a category when being created as this help maintain the content structure. Many missing links across the wiki have been removed or restored. Icon template has replaced the old "Ask", "No", and "Yes" templates across the wiki. Alert and alert small templates have replaced the old "Bug", "Construction", "MCM Note", "MO Note", "Notice", and "Warning" templates, as well as, their smaller counterparts. Alert small also has the "FO3 Note", "FNV Note", and "Loot Rule" templates merged into it.  Removed Content
      Most of the the unused files have been removed. Users should remember when updating images on pages to upload a new version of the existing image rather than simply uploading a new image. Doing the latter creates a lot of abandoned files. Doing the former also retains a version history for the file. All of the active galleries from the Mod pages have been removed. The gallery option will be removed from the Mod Form for the platform update as it's been deemed redundant and unnecessary.

      I'm posting to ask if we have anyone with PHP coding experience. Specifically with regard to updating a small and very simple Mediawiki extension we need to upgrade to a new method of hooking in order to continue using the extension for our wiki.
       
      Anyone able to assist will be compensated. PM me if interested.
       
      Thanks
