LFS Manual
Hello ,
From last week or so , the website : https://www.lfsmanual.net is down for maintenance , is it gonna take a while ?
That is the message from the website : "The LFS Manual is currently in maintenance mode. Please come back later."
** Best answer **
Whoops I forgot to remove that message.

The manual does work again but logins are still disabled for now. I had to upgrade PHP and Mediawiki and they changed their whole 3rd party authentication system. I still have to re-implement logging in with your LFS account.

Thank you!

Those upgrades you did were probably the cause of fixing the old(er) image sizing issue on the Manual (reported here: https://www.lfs.net/forum/thread/92435)! Thanks! Cool Also, seems like I'm still logged in on the Manual, probably from an earlier session, as I don't usually log out. Is it safe to edit, or should I wait until you reimplement LFS account login?
(sorry for doublepost)

If I may, one more question to Victor about the manual: like 3-4 years ago I mailed you about installing an extension to MediaWiki, to be able to use the {{#if:}} and other parser functions in Templates. You did it and it worked perfectly, I built some templates using it ( https://en.lfsmanual.net/wiki/Template:League_infobox#Example ). After the recent upgrades it seems like the "ParserFunctions" extension ( https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ParserFunctions ) is no longer available and the template is now broken. Could you please install the extension again? Smile
Aha I will have a look when I have some time again.

And yes if you're logged in still then that's fine. If I understand correctly, people do have accounts on the wiki (beit without a password) and sessions are maintained on the wiki itself. It's only the login authentication part that needs updating, so the wiki can check logins. So edits should work fine if you're still logged in.
Hello Victor. Is difficult to make oauth to lfsworld and lfsmanual through lfs.net?
Funny that you mention that - I've created a first (3rd party) authentication mechanism with Oauth2 a week ago.
It's being tested by the Sim Broadcasting guys atm and I will publish it to the public in a few weeks or early 2021 probably. It needs more work, but a plan for long term usage is forming in my head, so we can do more with that in the future.

I'm curious what kind of functionality you have in mind?
it's like: you authorize only on lfs.net, in other sites you only give permission to use your data scopes from lfs.net

sometimes im bored to input my user/pass on lfs.net and lfsworld.net and lfsmanual.net

If possible, could we have this enabled/installed again in the near future please? Smile The problem is, quite a few pages look broken, as a few templates (infoboxes, link formatting templates etc.) use the {{if}} function, for example. Attached a montage of examples on how they look on the article pages.

Ah right, it's included in MediaWiki, but i hadn't activated it in the config. Think it's ok now - at least, Rony's page looks fine.

Yes, everything is working now and back to normal. Thank you! Thumbs up
Loggin in doesn't work yet. I haven't logged in to lfsmanual before.
