implementation of $wgLogFormatters (562 bytes, patch)

updated patch for 1.17.0 (1.07 KB, patch)

implementation of $wgLogFormatters

$wgLogActions does not provide for a lot of fine-grained control over log entries; I wrote an extension to log failed login attempts to our wiki, which involved displaying entries for non-existent users. I ended up implementing something which let me intercept the individual entries before they were displayed. Attached are the changes I made against 1.15.3.

Michael, thank you for your patch, and my apologies that it's gone so long without a response.  I'm adding the "need-review" keyword to signal that someone should review your patch.  If you have the time and the interest, could you rebase it against current MediaWiki trunk in Subversion?  Thanks!
Comment 3 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-11-13 23:01:04 UTC
Although minor (and would be easy to fix), this patch has register_globals issues, as the variable is not defined in DefaultSettings.php setting it to an empty array

!empty should become isset too

Using a global to store functions seems a bit icky, wouldn't this possibly make more sense as a hook?
Comment 4 Michael Newton 2011-11-14 19:07:45 UTC
I'll defer to any suggestions regarding ickiness, as I'm certainly not that experienced working with the Mediawiki code.

It's been a while so I don't recall why I did it this way, but my notes say that this implementation is "same as $wgLogActions or $wgHooks" so I believe I was just copying some existing code.

updated patch for 1.17.0

For what it's worth, here's the patch updated to 1.17.0 code, with the above mentioned issues addressed. I don't have a trunk setup at the moment.

You can already do quite a lot of customization with $wgLogActionsHandlers. I'm not sure what circumstances you would need this (Don't want to display the timestamp for some reason?) [note: $wgLogActionsHandlers might be new-ish, so its possible it didn't exist when you wrote this]
Comment 7 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-11-17 00:45:34 UTC
not needed re: bawolff's comments, or rather FIXED!
