The website was migrated to a new server with more recent Apache and PHP installations. We're still working on the migration. If you notice any problems please report. Petko April 16, 2018, at 04:25 PM

Pages need fixing:

Waiting for Pm to install programs on the server:


If you send the zips for Maguila and Green I'll fix them, I don't have a local copy anymore. I'm also changing the vector skin for personal use, so I believe I could fix Monobook.

The recipes, not the pages

Thanks! I've disabled the recipes and skins above that are not yet fixed, check their pages for a link to the latest version or the list at Skins?action=upload (both the Skins and the Cookbook groups share the same upload directory for historical reasons from before there were a Skins group). --Petko April 19, 2018, at 02:39 AM

Monobook didn't have any issues for php 7.2 CarlosAB April 25, 2018, at 02:57 AM

The latest release of Monobook used Markup_e() with PCCF/create_function() which is fine for PHP 5.5-7.1 but deprecated for PHP 7.2. Even if it would run fine here (PHP 7.0), while reviewing it I decided to update it immediately instead of having to do it later: Attach:Skins/monobook72.php. All these fixes I'm making available are temporary, while the recipe maintainers update their recipes -- they can do it like me or in a different manner, there are more than one correct ways to do it -- I simply & quickly fix the recipes enabled on this wiki. --Petko April 25, 2018, at 07:06 AM

I am sorry I did not reply on time, but my distro still does not distribute php7.2, and I try to remain safe by not using not tested packages yet. CarlosAB November 01, 2018, at 02:51 AM

No problem, I've updated Green and Maguila on pmwiki.org for other people to see and try those, when you have the chance to test and review them and update the downloads, please delete the lines I added. --Petko November 01, 2018, at 03:40 PM
