wiki formatting problem

Dave Howorth
Every opensuse wiki page is disfigured by the presence of status
information about the page's accuracy, depth and readability overlaid
over the page itself. In some cases, it makes important information on
the page unreadable, as in the following example:

http://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime

An image of what I see is pasted at
http://imagepaste.nullnetwork.net/viewimage.php?id=2762

I believe the issue is that instead of using CSS to display this
information, javascript has been used. You can reproduce the issue by
disabling javascript.

Javascript should not be used where CSS is suitable.

 The problem you are seeing is "caused" by the  Flagged Revisions extension.

See: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14128

It's fixed in r77510, so... an update to the extension should fix it
right up. Looks like quite an old version in use on the oS Wiki...
see: http://en.opensuse.org/Special:Version - third entry under
"Special Pages"

Basically, if you want to use the FlaggedRevs tools you need to have
Javascript enabled.  If you don't care about it/use it, then if the
extension is updated, it'll simply be inaccessible to you as a page
viewer - ie you will not be able to check page validity etc.

Thanks for that. Hopefully the wiki s/w will be updated sometime then :)

We have upgraded the wiki software and all the extensions in the stage environment.  We are planning to wait another week to do the same in production.  This way, we don't risk breaking openSUSE.org during a major release.
