The ProofreadPage extension "Index" namespace appears to be not yet configured for , and the old page titles have been mangled.

Here is the documentation of it:

There is only one entry appearing in Special:IndexPages, which is this one, which was created very recently ( 5 September 2017 ).

All of the old Index pages should appear there.

According to , there were many Index pages in namespace Indeks , and they are now in a strange condition findable via - it appears these pages found their way into namespace 0 with a trailing :.

Please configure the namespace to be called Indeks , and set it up in ProofreadPage.

Then we could manually move all the pages in to their proper names, but if it is easy to do in the database that would be nice ;-)

Also I believe that the "Page" namespace was previously named "Halaman", as that was the name on Indonesian Wikisource ; see .
@Rachmat04 , can you confirm that?

I can confirm that there are problems with the "Page" namespace also, but I am not sure how to interpret this.

There is
which links to created 9 Juni 2016 04.46‎, size +397 , wgArticleId 49812

There is also
and also created 9 Juni 2016 04.46‎, size +516 , wgArticleId 42583

The content of the two pages is identical, so I am inclined to think these were actually a single page table entry in the old database, and the fact I am seeing two is due to the migration. (I only have the huge .sql file to check, and my quick reading of the .sql doesnt show there were two pages.)

Yes, namespace "Page" may be changed to "Halaman" to conform Indonesian language version.

I've loaded up the LocalSettings.php sent to me, and it had the following

define(NS_PROOFREAD_PAGE, 250);
define(NS_PROOFREAD_INDEX, 252);
$wgExtraNamespace[NS_PROOFREAD_PAGE] = "Page";
$wgExtraNamespace[NS_PROOFREAD_PAGE_TALK] = "Page talk";
$wgExtraNamespace[NS_PROOFREAD_INDEX] = "Index";
$wgExtraNamespace[NS_PROOFREAD_INDEX_TALK] = "Index talk";
$wgProofreadPageNamespaceIds = array(
    'index' => NS_PROOFREAD_INDEX,
    'page' => NS_PROOFREAD_PAGE

I guess that means the old configuration was 'incorrect' (especially Index vs Indeks namespace), but somehow it worked ok previously, and now the new version of MediaWiki & ProofreadPage do not function correctly with this misconfiguration.

@Jayvdb @Rachmat04 "Please configure the namespace to be called Indeks , and set it up in ProofreadPage." - I'm not sure for here, do you want a separate one called "INDEKS" and to keep

	$wgExtraNamespaces[NS_PROOFREAD_INDEX] = 'Index';

or do you want me to replace Index with Indeks?

For the configuration it should be configured, here:

And my understanding is you would also like me to rename NS_PROOFREAD_PAGE to "Halaman" instead of "Page"?

I think we'll need to see how WMF has configured the new ProofreadPage to work on , as that is the configuration that is desired for .
Indeks is just the Indonesian language translation for the Index namespace. The alias and the real namespace name should work identically.
See and
Likewise Halaman and Page.

@Jayvdb I have created aliases for the pages. Please tell me if it works as intended now.

ok, everything is looking much more like it is supposed it.
One problem is that still only contained one entry.
I manually edited an Index page, and it appeared there, so that is one way to fix the problem.
I purged another, and it did not appear, so that doesnt appear to be a solution.
However I do not see a maintenance script to automatically fix that in
Is there some other way, to automatically 'edit' those pages so that they appear in

A script needs to be written to use on the multiple pages.

@Jayvdb I ran the script and all pages in the "index" namespace now appear in Special:IndexPages.

Great. I think this issue is done.
@Rachmat04 is checking the wiki contents.
We'll create new issues for anything else, and then we can finish the usernames.
