Logo image set as wordmark; unable to revert
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Since I have bureaucrat permissions on massivestardatabasewiki, I tried to test some things for Vector 2022 there. Not realizing the purpose of a wordmark, I set the existing (non-text) logo image as the wordmark. I'm unable to remove the wordmark image. If I try to, I get this message:

The following errors occurred:
No changes were made.

If I try to unset the wordmark while also changing another setting (such as setting the logo image as the icon - I didn't see that field at first), the change goes through and the other setting is changed, but the wordmark image is still there. Am I doing something wrong, is this an issue on Miraheze's end, or is it a bug in MediaWiki?

I brought this up on Discord yesterday; no solution was found. Comments from there:

Agent: Via Graylog, I see that you got this error: Actor ID is null for SevenSpheres and 7
Agent: would require further analysis from a systems administrator
CosmicAlpha: Hmm, then actor ID being null shouldn't be, and maybe been a one time thing. I doubt it's related to wordmark images, I don't understand the problem. Actor ID has nothing to do with wordmarks.
Agent: Graylog tells me that that's the error causing ManageWiki to not save. I also see this error too: Failed to instantiate RC log entry performer. Perhaps the issue is that ManageWiki can't generate a log entry and errors out.
CosmicAlpha: if that were the cause I'd assume not even login would work. I'm mobile right now. I can check the database for the actor ID when I'm on my PC. I'm semi-away until Saturday though.
CosmicAlpha: oh, it might be caching, we may need to purge it from our end. It happens sometimes.

Event Timeline

Agent_Isai moved this task from Backlog to Short Term on the MediaWiki (SRE) board.
SevenSpheres claimed this task.

The upgrade to MediaWiki 1.38 seems to have fixed this issue. I've now removed the wordmark image on the wiki in question.
