SMF MediaWiki integration released

<< < (6/44) > >>

I've set up the LocalSettings.php per the instructions, removed the '&' from line 265 which fixed compatibility with my PHP 5.3.8, and the Wiki loads fine, however, I can't log in.  It redirects to an SMF login page, but I never get logged in.  I'm always a guest. 

I'm using MediaWiki 1.18.1 and SMF 2.0.2.

Okay, I've been staring at this bloody README for hte past hour, and I *STILL* can't figure out how to do this.

Can someone please please help?

What am I adding, to where? How am I configuring things?

I just... Maybe it's simple and easy and I'm an idiot.

But I seriously do not understand.

you would be best to start a separate thread in the proper support board, this thread is not for support.

I'd like to contribute by expanding the README to include extra information that, for those like me far from being experts, may become useful. I am now figthing to make it work, and I can see I am not the only one, with no specific "central repository" for troubleshooting. Also there are a couple of mispellings. A FAQ section can be added to the bottom, or as a separate file.

I have submitted a pull request, hope you find it useful.


I've looked and commented on your pull request.  I am sure most of it is confusion over the setup.  I am not the best one to write instructions on things and most of that was the original authors instructions.  Although the define does cause problems if the instructions where not read.

I am concerned about the first change suggested for problems though, that isn't the point of that code.  Something else is failing along the lines which is causing smf_member_id to not be retained in the wiki user options.  The code doesn't have the ability currently to correct bad smf_member_ids on accounts that exist.  Which may be why that coded failed if the SMF username was also Administrator and this is now conflicting with the wikis one.

It may be better to push off any long information into the readme and leave a big note at the top of the auth file to read the readme.

Thanks for the pull request though, I've been really busy lately with real life and haven't had any time to dig into the problems.
