Yes, there's a problem with Parser Functions and Semantic Bundle - it looks like different versions of Parser Functions are compatible with different versions of MediaWiki, and no one version is compatible with all of them; which makes it hard to know which version we should include in Semantic Bundle. Which version of Parser Functions did you download? If it was 1.15.x, maybe try the "Development version" instead - I'm not convinced that their labelling version for different systems is accurate. If you do try that, please let us know if it worked - it should help in figuring out how best to package Semantic Bundle.

I am using the Semantic MW with version 1.15 of MW. I installed the Semantic Bundle extension. I could not get the Parser Functions extension to work so I decided to replace that with what I could get from MediaWiki.org.


I am having an interesting problem with the ParserFunctions extension. When I download the correct version for MW 1.15 (using the extension distributor) then the ParserFunctions extension version displayed in Special:version is 1.1.1 . I attempted to use the parser functions but it just ignores any parser function I attempt to use and displays it as normal text.


When I attempt to use the latest (trunk) version of the code it displays as version 1.3 of the of the extension but it then fails with the message “Magic word ‘if’ not found. This is weird – when I previously use the Parser Function with MW 1.11/13 – the version displayed in Special version was 1.2 and the functions worked correctly – now with MW 1.15 I seem to be stuck somewhere between 1.1.1 and 1.3 and none of them seem to work.


I use PHP 5.3.


I hope someone can help me with this.
