Fatal error - BaseTemplate is missing

Postby contrafibul2 » January 25th, 2012, 4:17 pm

Just tried GumaxDD 1.5.2 (both versions) on MW 1.17, but I get the following error

Code: Select all
Fatal error: Class 'BaseTemplate' not found in [...........]/skins/GuMaxDD.php on line 69


Any idea what is going on?

Which system are you running your wiki? Windows? Linux? Did you install the wiki and skin properly?

Linux, Php 5.3. The wiki is otherwise working fine. As usual I simply copied the files to the skins folder and tried to activate the skin in 'My preferences'.

Does it have anything to do with this: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Hooks/BaseTemplateToolbox? It was introduced in MW no earlier than version 1.18 (from the release notes: "Pure "Skin" class based custom skins are no longer supported, all custom skins should be put together using SkinTemplate and BaseTemplate or QuickTemplate").

I have, extensions include Semantic MediaWiki (and related stuff like Semantic Forms), HeaderTabs, CategoryTree, CustomSidebar, FancyBoxThumbs, and Mulitple Uploads. Any extension which is known to cause problems?

Disable all extensions and see what will happen...

Sorry, I had to wait for a quiet moment when disabling extensions would cause the least amount of annoyance with visitors. But no, it had no effect whatsoever.

Maybe it has something to do with this discussion:

Mediawiki 1.17.0 had many issues... it had a few fixes after it was released.

I strongly recommend you download fixed version of 1.17.x or latest version. then try it again.

Hi

I know this is an old post but it is still not resolved. I`m on the latest 1.17.5 and I`m still getting this error. I`m looking forward to getting a followup.

Thanks

Micah
