Welcome to the Village Pump. This page is used to discuss the technical issues, operations and guidelines of the FlightGear wiki.

Please add new topics to the bottom of this page.

Old discussions should be moved to a FlightGear wiki:Village pump/Archive YEAR. These discussions can then be moved to a relevant talk page if appropriate.

MediaWiki updated to 1.39.6

We have updated MediaWiki to its latest LTS version 1.39.6 today. Although we've tested the update, chances are that we've missed certain scenarios or features. Please report any issues that you may encounter.

Embedded YouTube videos broken

It seems that the EmbedVideo extension was removed at some point. Consequently, pages such as Howto:Creating FlightGear Promo Videos are broken. At present, the best replacements seems to be a fork and Extension:YouTube.

Thanks for the report. It was introduced by today's update, but should be fixed now.

Confirmed, thanks. And I’d completely forgotten about {{wikipedia}}. 😅

Forum registration problem

Hello, I would like to register on the forum, but I tried several times without success. I sent an email to the administrator some time ago, but it seems to have been lost. I don't know what to do, is there somebody here who could help? Please tell me if you need additional information. Thanks very much in advance. Kestrel (talk) 13:14, 25 March 2024 (UTC)

That's unfortunate! You can find my email address at https://forum.flightgear.org/contact.php Please try again if you've done that before, I'll actively monitor the address for any incoming messages, and let me know if you don't get a reply.
