Error on Crappy Games Wiki with Special:ReplaceText
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

For some reason, when I tried to go on the Replace Text on Crappy Games, it gave me this error: "Error: text replacements cannot be run if $wgCompressRevisions is set to true." How am I supposed to replace text mistakes with the intended text if this error keeps showing?

You'd have to use something like AutoWikiBrowser

First of all, please do be careful when using the task forms as this is not a security task in any way.

Second, unfortunately the error message says it all, compressed wikis (which we do when a wiki is large) do not work with ReplaceText. I'm sorry about this inconvenience, the only thing I can recommend instead is MassEditRegex.

@Reception123 Got it, I'll try that. I thought filing a Phabricator task would do the trick, but I guess not. I apologize for the inconvenience.
