Wiki Update COMPLETE
For the past month or so, some of you might have noticed this banner at the top of the wiki when you log in1):
It indicated that a new update of the wiki engine is available. I had been waiting for the stable release to be available instead of the release candidate (rc) and it looks like it is now. I finished testing this update on a local copy of our website to make sure that it didn't break anything (it did). The old version we were using was from 2020-07-29 (2 years ago!) so there was some incompatibilities with extensions we were using. Luckily I found alternatives and completed the update. Let me know if you notice anything unusual.
I found some issues that needed to be fixed before I could proceed with the wiki update.
|The BlogTNG options used to post a news item on the front page are missing. The plugin page and github page haven't been updated in years, indicating that it's no longer being maintained.|| Remove BlogTNG and replace with the following plugins instead:
* Old version of Pagequery (see Issue description)
There will be slight changes in functionality.
|Some template changes were reverted.||Re-implement the changes listed here, which need to be sequenced with permission reset.|
