I have a couple questions about the formSpecialPage class and how it works.
For starters, I cannot seem to make anything happen in the onSubmit
callback, regardless of what I do. In addition, I'm also not certain how to
return error messages upon failure to perform the action. What's more, I
made onSubmit() just return true regardless of anything, and I still could
not get the onSuccess() message to display.
In a nutshell, I don't understand the submit process for this class, and
would like some tips on how to make sure I'm doing everything properly.
My extension I am developing is located in my github, here:
Source for the class is in SpecialContactUs.php, and the js and css are
currently unused while I work out the rest of the technical details. If I
could possibly get some pointers about it, I'd appreciate it. I'm basically
stuck, and don't know what to do next.
One other point I'd like advice on is ResourceLoader. I know it handles
scripts and css, and I was told that it could be used to inject my script
into the articles for my extension (different from ContactUs, and still in
early stages of development). It's a JS based extension, and the PHP is
only meant to be called via AJAX calls from the JS. I'm doing the testing
of the JS on actual user/common.js pages currently because I don't know how
to set my script up with MediaWiki. I tried using the $wgResourceLoader but
couldn't produce any results, and I eventually decided it would be best to
Thanks in advance. Any help is greatly appreciated.
