It's not you, it's me... Actually, its Wikia again. --Xamralco (talk) 00:11, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
Well, at least we can add some more tweets to this now. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 00:18, 26 July 2012
{{logo}} and {{Nologo}} aren't working either. This has got to stop, Wikia, this has just got to stop. ~[ths] UotM Eclipse Craproll MotM BePrepared 00:38, 07/26/2012
I went over to Noblesse oblige, where I know {{Title}} is used, and opened my error console. I got a whole bunch of this junk:

Uncaught exception: TypeError: Cannot convert 'YAHOO' to object

Long story short, every time it says "cannot convert <whatever> to object", it's because the javascript is referencing an object that doesn't exist yet. Among others, our YAHOO API (YUI) isn't being included at the right time, although it definitely is being included at some point, because when the page has finished loading, var YAHOO is defined. That object, btw, is why the QVFD and tagging scripts are broke-d. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usThu, Jul 26 '12 7:50 (UTC)
Why do we use Yahoo YUI for title/logo/nologo? Wouldn't it be feasible, as these are objects with IDs and classy, to use bog standard JavaScript get object with ID stuff? Then we're not reliant on a scripting that is bulky and becoming outmoded. (Because I know soooo much about js.)                               Puppy's talk page10:22 30 Jul
Because those elements don't exist on the page when the code runs, so the code has to wait for them to load in order to replace them. However, there's no built-in .onLoad() method for individual elements (other than images, and the logo isn't an <img/> element, it's a link with a background-image). YUI simulates such a method with its .onContentReady(), which "polls" (uses a looping timer to check every n milliseconds) to see if a given element has loaded. jQuery has no such method built-in, although plugins exist, and it would be easy enough to write one. The alternative would be using window.onload(), but that doesn't fire until every last element on the page has completely loaded, which could take several seconds.  ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usMon, Jul 30 '12 10:34 (UTC)
Most of these didn't actually kick in until window was loaded anyway. For the sacrifice of several seconds on some pages on few elements, we add back not having to load the YAHOO API on all pages. As for the logo as a background image, can we "paste" over it with a copy of the background image without the logo, and then position the "alternative" logo on top of that?                               Puppy's talk page11:25 30 Jul
Maybe, but many of the gadgets also use the YUI -- QVFD and Lyr's tagging script use it for both AJAX calls and for displaying UI message boxes. All the gadgets are going to have to be rewritten for jQuery. I made a new version of the QVFD and tagging scripts back in January-February, then kept forgetting to finish it...and then they upgraded us to MW 1.19, making half my code redundant. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usMon, Jul 30 '12 21:15 (UTC)
What would it take to complete the stuff you did earlier in the year and get it working with MW1.19? (Given you were doing it for this reason, at least partially, maybe it's time to push it over the line.)                               Puppy's talk page12:04 31 Jul
I'll see what I can do as soon as I finish the social networking tool; the navboxes for SPIKE; fixing the realtime RecentChanges script (which apparently breaks now for no good reason) and integrating it with the auto-patrolling script; giving the auto-patrolling script added functionality for diff pages; and damn it all to hell but there are about thirty articles floating around this place (and ten more in my userspace) that I started to fix before being distracted by something else. Come to think of it, I should've never told anybody I was any good at javascript... ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Jul 31 '12 11:43 (UTC)

The templates don't work? No problem!

I think the template has no logo in it. GiratinaOriginForme |Si Plebius Dato' (Sir) Joe ang Kemador CUN|IC Kill 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg | 09:51, July 30, 2012 (UTC)
