Script Error[edit source]
Does anybody have an idea why title.getContent is causing script error such as in User:Sebschlicht/LearningUnit? The Lua documentation says there is a getContent-function for title objects. Why cant I use them? This also applies to exists, fileExists, canTalk, isTalkPage, fullUrl. Only a few are working, such as fullText and contentModel. --Sebschlicht (discuss • contribs) 13:18, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
- First, I think it's a property vs. method issue. GetContent requires a : (colon) rather than a . (period). Second, I think page may be a reserved word. Funny things happen when you overwrite one of the page-level variables. Go with title when you want a title object. I've had better success with that. Anyway, this code seems to be working now.
- Note that in general, no one monitors your pages. It is best to leave questions on someone else's discuss page if you want to be sure they see it. I just happened to be reviewing the log and saw this one.
