Deprecated tags in documents

Post by MarkRS » Wed May 25, 2022 10:24 am

I'm editing a document page and I notice it is tagged with a "pages using deprecated source tags" tag.

I'd love to remove deprecated tags, but how do I find which tags it's talking about?

"Amusingly", I notice that the "Documentation Best Practices" page is also tagged with this tag.

I note that the Category block, pages using deprecated source tags appears at the bottom of numerous pages but with a red background. The mouseover reads, in part, page does not exist.

Yes.

However, clicking the tag takes me to an actual page, with a big list of documents, and a message saying there's no page. I'd guess the page is generated rather than having any content. It also says I can't create it.

Is this a document website bug?

Just about every page I've looked at :-) Ah, no, following the tag on the page I'm working on (https://docs.joomla.org/J4.x:Adding_an_ ... _Component) it says there are only 200 pages like that. It gives the list.

Thanks, I've filed a report on the page you've referenced.

Side issue: I added a link to that tutorial from the Joomla 4 Tutorials page. Premature?

It's probably not finished, but it's fairly useful as it stands I hope, so no, not premature, imnvho :)

The problem with the red category link at the bottom of many pages is affecting currently 6,317 pages.
According to my research, it is probably related to the MediaWiki extension "Syntax Highlighting". This extension is obsolete and has been replaced by "SyntaxHighlight".
As far as I can see, this requires a syntax modification in the source code of the JDoc pages.

However, the error does not change the information given on the affected pages. Only the coloured representation of code examples is not the best.

It would be easy to remove the red warning marking by creating the missing category page. But that doesn't solve the real problem, it just makes the warning less visible.
