Description Romain 2006-10-18 15:14:28 UTC
The extension Dynamic Article List located at is very useful to display
the latest articles in a category (and sub).
I keep having an error "Undefined variable: r". Because I am not a php
programmer, I can't really find a way to make the extension work without this
error. I have tested a fix proposed on the talk page (the if (isset($r)) {
$r....}) but it is not a definitive fix because in my case, the extension stop
Can someone help me and propose a new fix for this extension? Or at least
explain why this error fire and some way to fix this ? Thanks

Maybe you could use the DP extension istead, see

If DPL lacks a feature you need it might be possible to add it.
Comment 2 Siebrand Mazeland 2008-08-11 16:24:38 UTC
Is this issue still current with more recent versions of the extension and MediaWiki?
Comment 3 Chad H. 2009-01-03 18:43:10 UTC
Marking INVALID. It's not in SVN, it seems horribly outdated (from checking, and it also seems redundant to DPL.
