This page is for reporting bugs that you may encounter in the wiki. This does not cover in-game issues that you may encounter, nor does it cover page contents within individual articles.

  • If you are experiencing an in-game bug or issue that requires technical support, check the Guild Wars 2 support forums.
  • If you are experiencing difficulties getting past a specific part of the game, use the "Search" box on the left to find the specific quest, mission, or region that you are finding difficult. You can review any tips on that page, and discuss it on that page's talk page if more help is needed.
  • If you have a problem with contents of a page, use the associated talk page.

Please review existing bug reports before creating a new one. If you add a bug not related to the wiki (such as a bug in the game itself), the report may be removed with no action taken.

When reporting a new bug, be sure to provide a description of the problem, your wiki username, the information from any error message received, and any additional comments that may help someone reproduce and troubleshoot the suspected bug.

Key: Yes = Solved, No = Unsolved, No = Not a bug

Images are Breaking[edit]

In all of the chaos of uploading new stuff from the the new area/new weapon and armor pictures, lots of icons getting moved to drop "skin" from the name, or just being moved in general, I'm seeing lots "Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination". Fused weapon skins, File:Kaiser Snake Rifle.jpg, and File:Kaiser Snake Staff.jpg(actually I think most of the Kaiser weapons, or the ones I've come across) as well as File:Flame Out (1).png, File:Flame Out (3).png, and File:Flame Out (4).png. I also had some issues with images that I updated not showing up correctly until over 48 hours later, and I checked these images on two separate computers/internet connections no where near each other to confirm it wasn't on my end. - Doodleplex 19:44, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

File Size[edit]

Already mentioned it on Reddit but figured reposting here won't hurt either. This might not be a bug and more unintentional change, but the max file size before was 8 MB, now it's 2 MB. 2 MB might be a bit of a problem in regards to maps, as most zone maps start at 2 MB and go up. - Doodleplex 04:10, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

This appears to have been a change in the default PHP settings since we went from 5.3 to 7.0. I've increased the maximum upload size, can you confirm whether it's working? Not sure if I need to restart PHP or if a reload suffices? :) Justin Lloyd (talk) 04:38, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
It says it's back to 8 MB. Lovely, thanks! - Doodleplex 04:45, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Bugs related to the wiki maintenance[edit]

Hi guys, please leave found bugs post-wiki maintenance in this section. --Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 07:34, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

1Yes Event timers (Widget:Event timer)
World bosses not showing at times expected. Probably related to SMW time/date -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 07:34, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Fixed. (SMW wiki API output format changed for values using timestamps - pretty rarely used format so shouldn't occur elsewhere). -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 19:01, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
0No Personal JS - importScript
This is not a bug, and this function has now been removed from the core. Let me know on my talk page if you need help updating it. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 07:34, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
We could actually provide that function in MediaWiki:Common.js to maintain compatibility with existing code.. if people would want that. poke | talk 07:58, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Should probably look like this: function importScript(page) { mw.loader.load('/index.php?action=raw&ctype=text/javascript&title=' + encodeURIComponent(page)); } poke | talk 08:02, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Using F12->consol in firefox, I'm seeing quite a few reference errors coming from 'load.php' towards this function. Is it used in internal files? -Darqam 13:30, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
@poke; I don't think many people use custom cs in the first place, so it shouldn't be too arduous to update each user script as they are reported. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:06, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
@darqam; sometimes I get a console error with "$.client is undefined" when visiting special:RecentChanges, but mostly I don't. I don't know what causes this, but it could be that I have the "Group changes by page in recent changes and watchlist" box ticked in my preferences. It happens in monobook/vector. Otherwise i've not seen any other messages in the console yet. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:08, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
1Yes MediaWiki:InterwikiSearchRedirect.js
The search box html ids changed between versions. This has now been resolved and partially fixes the console bug on recentchanges I mentioned above. -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 18:17, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
Tables are acting funny on some pages see here. - Drago 02

The issue seems to come from "{{vendor table|vendor=Bartender_(norn)|item=Observational Zymology Manual}}". Notably the cost section. Commenting out this line seems to make things work ok. -Darqam 03:04, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
edit: Issue seems to stem from vendor table template, both actually cause issues but only in the last entry of the table. -Darqam 03:05, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
That’s fixed now. There was some error with the SWM query of the vendor table that caused an SMW error to be rendered at the end of the line, causing the closing table tag not to be on its own line which causes it not to be handled, so that table never got closed.
Can someone of the SMW pros look at my change here and tell me if that change is okay, or if those default values are actually needed for something? poke | talk 07:04, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Nice spot on the error tag. I wouldn't have thought that the "default" >0 queries would have been reached. I've added another query provision in the line above which should apply if the min/max/currency isn't set (so just using {{vendor table}} now will show all vendor results for all currencies. I am surprised however that SMW still doesn't offer the option to move the "further results..." to a new line though :( (table ends still fall over) -Chieftain AlexUser Chieftain Alex sig.png 07:34, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, using the currency record for default was a terrible idea trying not to hack in a default value.--Relyk ~ talk < 10:15, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
