History

#1 Updated by local admin almost 12 years ago

The only server-side requirement listed on the relevant mediawiki page is a package called HTMLDOC.
I went ahead and installed that from the RHEL repos. Just let me know if it doesn't work as expected for any reason.

The extension is added in https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/6422a130a043d2936bf870afe330e7a034975c3a

In https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/c3dc8262811a499d7a51f050ce8bb90c64d59684 I add a small extension that I wrote to put a PDF link in the Views menu. This extension can be used for other kinds of menu manipulation in the future.

  • Status changed from Resolved to Assigned
  • Target version changed from 1.1 to 1.1.1

In the 1.1 upgrade I disabled both the PDFBook extension and the associated custom menu item, as the PDFs they were outputting were broken. PDFs seemed to work on cdev, so I'm a bit confused.

  • Target version changed from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2

1.1.1 will only fix critical issues so I'm bumping this to 1.1.2.

  • Target version changed from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3

  • Target version changed from 1.1.3 to 1.1.4

On a lark, I reactivated the extension on the live site, and now it seems to be working great. I'm going to leave the ticket under the 1.1.5 target version, but it is actually fixed right now.
