Extension:MyVariables not working on one wiki
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

On this wiki, the extension MyVariables is not working properly, when used, it returns a value of " ", nothing, for all of the different variables that the extension adds on. This includes {{CURRENTUSER}}, {{CURRENTLOGGEDUSER}}, {{CURRENTUSERREALNAME}}, and {{LOGO}}. I am logged into my account, but it still does not seem work at all. I went to another wiki that I own and enabled the MyVariables extension to test and see if it's a global thing, but no, it worked perfectly fine on this wiki. I should probably add that I added MyVariables to TurtleWiki a few days ago, and it worked as it should during that time, but today it just seemed to stop doing its job. I even removed and re-enabled the extension, with no result. Help would be appreciated, I use this extension a few times throughout TurtleWiki, but their uses are essential.

Resources:
Broken uses of {{CURRENTUSER}}
Special:RecentChanges (TurtleWiki)

Note: TurtleWiki is a private wiki, so certain Global permissions may be needed to access certain pages.

@Turtle84375 Could you please try disabling the ApprovedRevs extension and then checking if it works after that? (you may need to purge the cache: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Purge). If it does work after you've removed ApprovedRevs, there is likely a strange conflict between the extensions that will likely be Upstream

Strange conflict it is; I removed ApprovedRevs and purged a page that I had MyVariables used on, and the variables started working again. Is this a newly found conflict, or is it something that was already recognized before for either ApprovedRevs or MyVariables?

We weren't aware of this conflict until now. Unfortunately, this does seem to be an upstream issue and there is nothing we can do unless they fix it. I've created upstream task: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T279617 and restricted enabling both extensions at once on Miraheze.

Allright, thanks.
