I have an extra namespace that’s broken and I’m not sure how to fix it. When searching for content, you can find results that reference pages that used to exist. Now navigating to those pages results in “There is currently no text in this page.”
The namespace was previously configured as the ‘project’ namespace (100 and 101) but even if I change the definition like
define("NS_NAMIC", 3000); define("NS_NAMIC_TALK", 3001); $wgExtraNamespaces[NS_NAMIC] = "NAMIC_Wiki"; $wgExtraNamespaces[NS_NAMIC_TALK] = "NAMIC_Wiki_Talk";
I’m not able to get MediaWiki to find the content that belongs with each title.
The PrefixIndex Special Page shows that I have a namespace ‘4’ with the articles in question. But most of those titles exhibit the ‘no text’ problem. For example https://namic.qualitybox.us/wiki/NAMIC_Wiki:FMRI
I did try to fix the broken namespace using
php w/maintenance/namespaceDupes.php --wiki=namic --fix
and got results like
id=3594 ns=0 dbk=NAMIC_Wiki:About *** dest title exists and --add-prefix not specified id=3188 ns=0 dbk=NAMIC_Wiki:Community_Coordinate_Systems -> NAMIC_Wiki:Community_Coordinate_Systems (no conflict) id=3443 ns=0 dbk=NAMIC_Wiki:Community_DTI -> NAMIC_Wiki:Community_DTI (no conflict) id=4197 ns=0 dbk=NAMIC_Wiki:Community_IGT -> NAMIC_Wiki:Community_IGT (no conflict) id=3295 ns=0 dbk=NAMIC_Wiki:Community_Licensing -> NAMIC_Wiki:Community_Licensing (no conflict) id=3326 ns=0 dbk=NAMIC_Wiki:Community_Licensing_Institutional_Experiences -> NAMIC_Wiki:Community_Licensing_Institutional_Experiences (no conflict)
Although that definitely was aware of the problem titles, there still isn’t any content associate with those titles that were fixed.
