Customizing SMF > Portals, Bridges, and Integrations

MediaWiki SMF Bridge not working - No auth, portal removed...

<< < (2/6) > >>

OK, so I know now:

- The line causing the issue with the "Login/Register" link was this:

--- Quote ---RewriteRule ^/*$ /w/index.php [L,QSA]
--- End quote ---

and removing it, the tab added in the menu works, and the Short URLs work more or less.

For example, this "Login/Register" link is show as [...]w/index.php?title=Especial:Entrar&returnto=Página+principal  (as said, it is in Spanish)

Now I need to figure out:

- Why the authentication is still not working. I cannot even login with the admin user and password specified during installation (maybe this is to be expected?  ??? )

- Why some links are using Short URLs correctly, while others don't  (probably can be solved with some .htaccess tweaking)

Any help appreciated

And more details:

The same behaviour apparently caused by the .htaccess line mentioned (clicking the "Login/Register" link takes me to the forum registration page, even though I am already logged in)  can be replicated if I enable the settings $wgSMFLogin and $wgCookieDomain

And, in that case, entering username and password said that there was an error with cookies and I could not be logged in. (that was because $wgCookieDomain was not properly set, using '' instead of '')

Still cannot make authentication to work.

OK, maybe a silly question, but: should I install MediaWiki in the same database than SMF? Now I have two databases, one for the forum and I've created another for the wiki.

Just occurred to me that either:

a) Both databases are not talking one to each other ??? Maybe I should have just one database with tables identified by prefix... Going to try that out now.


b) Cookies are not being read properly

Maybe both? Any hint? What logs should I check?

As always, any help is highly appreciated

Andre N:
MediaWiki 1.18.1 and SMF 2.0.2?
Can I have a link to your site?
Or even better, a temporary ftp account? :)
I see lots of these  auth problems with MediaWiki. Would be nice to figure out what is wrong...

Yes, 1.18.1 and 2.0.2. Sure thing, thanks.

Right now I was about to install MediaWiki using the same database than the forum (scheduled maintenance and all that) and then try.

I will PM you the details after that (if it was not just a DB issue, which I am not sure it is...), if that's OK for you
