Description Umang 2006-12-06 08:59:13 UTC
'''<math>I =  W . C^2</math>''' shows the correct equation in the Templates but
it gives some weired output when the Template is used on the Main Page


This keeps on changing when i refresh the Page.

This could be due to use of another, broken, extension on that page. Since you
provide no further information, we cannot investigate.

Providing the URL to a page showing the problem would help.
Comment 2 Umang 2006-12-07 04:59:43 UTC
I have mediawiki-1.6.7
As I Have read in other articles
"On newer MediaWiki versions (at least 1.6.7), you cannot recursively call parse()"
I think my extension is recursively calling parse, cos I am using this math
equation 4 times while creating that page.
I cannot give the link to the page cos I have installed mediawiki on my personal
computer which doesnt have a public IP.
Please let me know what are the other details required.
Also I am using ParserFunctions as an extension in the mediawiki
Comment 3 Umang 2006-12-07 05:16:03 UTC
I found a Page which has a similar type of error
Hope this helps investigate the issue
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-12-08 00:12:28 UTC
That's bug 2144 (<math> embedded in link text).
Comment 5 Umang 2006-12-08 04:11:10 UTC
I worked on the issue and found that the extension DynamicPageList.php when
trying to parse used to get stuck at function strip and then go in the loop.
Still i would say that was not any perfect solution. Also Bug 2144 shows a
similar error, So i will mark this bug a duplicate of Bug 2144.
Thanks for your help.
