Description Cacycle 2007-10-28 15:35:51 UTC
There is a small workaround JavaScript called "diff.js" in 1.12alpha (r26409) that interferes with the in-page MediaWiki editor wikEd ( wikEd uses its own helper script with the name diff.js ( It is loaded after testing for its name. 

I figured it might be easier for you to rename this small temporary workaround file than for me to change the long-established name of my diff script or to find a workaround for the wikEd script detection.

Thanks in advance, Cacycle

Perhaps a more descriptive name would be in order, like fixOldGeckoDiff.js or similar (perhaps not _that_ long).
Comment 2 Cacycle 2007-10-29 04:22:45 UTC
Here is the link to the MediaWiki diff.js file:
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-10-29 13:58:13 UTC
It doesn't seem to matter if it's "installed" via in-wiki pages. There's no conflict.
Comment 4 Cacycle 2007-10-29 15:34:59 UTC
There IS a conflict with wikEd (< 0.9.48c) and changing the name in MediaWiki would solve this. The incompatibility results from the mechanism by which wikEd checks for the presence of loaded scripts. 
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2007-12-05 19:24:08 UTC
Well, I'd recommend fixing the script so that it doesn't break instead. This would avoid future problems where core MediaWiki code, extension code, user-written gadgets, or custom user scripts use another name which happens to be the same as a name of one of wikEd's files.

Changing all WONTFIX high priority bugs to lowest priority (no mail should be generated since I turned it off for this.)
