ReactOS Wiki MediaWiki Version Updating

Post by Luca090902 »

I find, the MediaWiki software on the ReactOS Wiki must be updated and also PHP and MySQL and the MediaWiki extensions, because newer versions has more functions. The software version on the wiki is 1.23.13. The newest version is 1.30.0.

I think learn_more means is...
'What feature(s)/function(s) of the newer version(s) are you wanting to use?'
I reserve the right to ignore any portion of any post if I deem it not constructive or likely to cause the discussion to degenerate.

The old software version are no more supported by MediaWiki. I like the modern design and the direct preview in the Edit section are no more experimental.

I haven't tested the direct preview feature, but I like also the modern design and the Hovercards in the Page Previews extension.

A new design might require them to redo somethings, though, but updating mediawiki isn't hard to do. Just make sure to make backup copies before doing so.

mediawiki tends to introduce quite some breaking changes in my experience, making upgrades a major pain in the ass.

Wiki has to be updated, because of security issues:
