shows looping series of "Object ids" (78.87 KB, image/png)
2009-01-28 21:20 UTC, Greg Rundlett

Description Greg Rundlett 2009-01-28 19:34:41 UTC
MediaWiki  1.15alpha (r46458)
PHP 	5.1.6 (apache2handler)
MySQL 	5.0.45

Category Page link text displays "Object id NN" instead of the Article Title.

For example, in a Category with two members, you would see this output:

The following 2 pages are in this category, out of 2 total.
    * Object id #93
    * Object id #87

They are still alphabetized and link properly to the article, but the link text is missing/malformed

Categories with Media: members do display those image thumbnails properly.
Comment 2 Greg Rundlett 2009-01-28 21:19:43 UTC
The Object id actually loops in the series (110,115,109)

    * Object id #110
    * Object id #115
    * Object id #109
    * Object id #110
    * Object id #115
    * Object id #109
    * Object id #110
    * Object id #115

(Category Links appear to be ok in the database, so it doesn't seem like a db corruption)

Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2009-01-28 21:34:13 UTC
Regression... r46020 added a call to $wgContLang->convert() for category article listings, but mistakenly passed the title *object* instead of the text. In PHP 5.2, this was silently converted to a string, but in older versions this would interpolate as something useless like "Object id #110".

Fixed in r46489.
Comment 5 Greg Rundlett 2009-01-28 21:37:59 UTC
Thanks -- I so want to ditch this server and/or update PHP
