MediaWiki 1.19 update: HTML5 is now official

MateyY July 13, 2012 User blog:MateyY

With the upcoming MediaWiki update, MediaWiki v1.19, previous HTML styling tags, as well as some other properties, will be removed! That means there will be no more use of <center></center>, <font></font>, <span align=" "></span>, etc. Wikia tables will be affected as well. Instead of writing:

{| align="left"

... you would have to use:

{| style="text-align:left"

<br clear="all" /> will also be replaced with <br clear="both" />. This will not, however, be much of a problem thanks to the clear template.

There are other examples of tags and ways of writing style that will be disabled as soon as the update is passed.

I have come to notice that many users' signatures still use older HTML styling tags. These will, however, have to be replaced, so that the signature renders properly. You can either do that yourself, or you can request that the Coding Companions fix that for you. In fact, we will not only be fixing signatures but all kinds of other codes as well! So sign up today!
