Description Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2005-10-09 17:51:34 UTC
I just created a user account at, and when I went to the
preferences page, the following error was reported:

Warning:  Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in
/usr/local/apache/common-local/php-1.5/includes/SpecialPreferences.php on line 570

Apart from browsing the site, this was the first action I performed having
created my account.  I don't want to clutter the site up with a bunch of
unwanted users, so I have not tried to replicate the problem, but subsequent
visits to this page still generate the error.  Preference changes seem to be
saved OK.

The issue is I believe triggered by an unsupported language being set for 
$wgLanguageCode. Due to the way things are set up, the site defaulted to a language 
code of "mediawiki" instead of "en". ;)

I've set it to "en", but still need to kill the bug in the code.

Fixed in HEAD, rev 1.144 of SpecialPreferences.php.
