The list of articles doesn't work. Hrodulf 01:46, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

I don't know how to fix it. How will people see my crappy Hamas article? --Hrodulf 02:12, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Guess we'll have to wait for Olipro or Zim, or possibly Spang. Tompkinssig Smallturtle t o m p k i n s  blah. ﺞوﻦ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ วอฏม +տ trade websites 02:15, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
I'm going to try to figure it out in the meantime, but probably will fail. --Hrodulf 02:34, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
The problem is apparently Wikia-based. Sannse said they were working on it, then went to bed. So um... yeah.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 02:52, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
The problem is with this page: http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/UnNews:15_June_2006 . The command isn't working properly, so we can't fix it. I will try to do a temporary workaround. --Hrodulf 02:54, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Ok, I recoded Template:StoriesListBeta so all the stories are there as links. This will work until DynamicPageList is working again. Now I need to find a way to tell unnews writers to use the template to add a link to their story. I'll figure that out next. --Hrodulf 03:35, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Warning's up, it's ugly as hell but we need it at the moment unfortunately. --Hrodulf 03:45, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

I can fix it, give me a minute or two. Spang talk 08:47, 15 Jun 2007

Ok, it's fixed for now, but the whole UnNews system could do with a rewrite. Spang talk 09:08, 15 Jun 2007

It's still not working. Since my workaround was huffed I won't revert it, but UnNews doesn't work if people can't find the articles. --Hrodulf 13:15, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

Ah crap. I did fix it, but wikia has changed it again, so now my changes are making it broken. I'll fix that in a minute. Spang talk 01:33, 15 Jun 2007
 :'( Well I did re-fix it, but then wikia changed it back to how it was before again, breaking it. It's basically the difference between <DPL> and <DynamicPageList>, and the one that actually works keeps changing. I'll put it back one last time, then it can sort itself out. Spang talk 02:01, 15 Jun 2007
Hah, now they both work. See, it all works out in the end! Spang talk 02:05, 15 Jun 2007
Yes, it seems to be working again now. --Hrodulf 14:30, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

You see... every time it breaks, I know either someone was fucking around with it, and if not, it was Wikia pissing around with something (which they always change back) so in future, leave it alone and wait for wikia to stop fucking things up, that's all. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 14:32, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

It was wikia upgrading from DPL2 to the latest DPL, which uses different tags to invoke it. I don't know if the old version will keep working or not, or if all dynamic page lists will have to be updated. UnNews will definitely need to be updated to take advantage of the new version's features. And it might not get sorted until next week sometime, so it's better fixed now than later. Also... uh, it's a wiki, and if something's broken and anyone can fix it even temporarily, they should. Spang talk 03:46, 15 Jun 2007
GOOD LORD! The Wikia spotlight got put in IN ADDITION TO the Google ads instead of INSTEAD OF! Millions could die from this mistake!--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 16:27, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Speaking of which, someone really needs to make that thing look better, it's ugly as hell... Tompkinssig Smallturtle t o m p k i n s  blah. ﺞوﻦ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ วอฏม +տ trade websites 16:53, 15 June 2007 (UTC)
Uhh... what? I think you got the wrong topic (the personal attacks one is back in 2006 somewhere). Spang talk 11:27, 15 Jun 2007

Oh noes!

Wow, that's some kind of broken. Any idea when it's going to be consistently unfucked? I've had a couple of UnNews stories now that few, if any, people will have had the misfortune to read. I'm not the only one. Imagine the cruft and the sexy admin-related, ICU taggable stories that have passed us by. Just look at the archives... Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:15, 19 June 2007 (UTC)
