PHP fatal error: entire web request took longer than 60 seconds and timed out[edit]

The page https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffie-Hellman-Schl%C3%BCsselaustausch can't be loaded, tried it for several minutes. --Trustable (talk) 18:23, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

It loads for me in less than 10 seconds. Probably the server was overloaded when you tried. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 21:48, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
@Tacsipacsi: I hoped that, but it's not. The problem exists now for over 10 hours. I tried different browsers, without login, different Internet access in different cities, always the same error. Update: It works now, but only if I'm not logged in. --Trustable (talk) 06:43, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
@Tacsipacsi: Update 2: Now we know the reason for the error and it can be reproduced by another user: The reason is "Preference -> Appearance -> Math = PNG images". With this setting, the timeout happens. With MathML the page loads. --Trustable (talk) 09:58, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
@Trustable: Really odd, it loads for me even with PNG formulae in way less than a minute. Debian Stretch, Firefox 60, 63 and Chromium 69. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 20:03, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
Issue seems to be resolved, now it loads with PNG for me too. --Trustable (talk) 17:43, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Global OAuth?[edit]

Hello. How can I make global authorization to make edits in several projects at the same time? (app like a global Huggle)
For editing, do I have to perform the full authorization process (request for rights via widget, getting a Access token, exchange for a Edit token) in each project separately? Or Edit token (for example, received on the Meta’s endpoint) is global and valid for use in any project? Applicable project: *. Sorry for my English.—Iluvatar (talk) 18:36, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Restore old edit buttons bar[edit]

Hello. How to restore globally (or at least locally at lt.wikipedia & bat-smg.wikipedia) old (pre-vector) edit line? Two days ago it suddenly disappeared. It is possible to turn one so called "advanced" one which lacks one locally implemented key for adjusting some syntactic formations or converting some letters (see lt:Vikipedija:Vikifikatorius & bat-smg:Vikipedėjė:Vikifikatuorios). Local sysops can not help as somehow .css pages became only the property of the few. Hugo.arg (talk) 11:48, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

You can read how to do this on mw:Contributors/Projects/Removal_of_the_2006_wikitext_editor#Alternatives. Ruslik (talk) 20:56, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Thanks, but it still needs these "interface administrators" rights... Hugo.arg (talk) 09:07, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

With regard to your last sentence, you will want to read interface administrators. It's kind of silly but that's where we are. Killiondude (talk) 04:02, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
