Classic adventure IFDB page can't be edited?

I was trying to edit the IFDB page for Adventure by Crowther and Woods but I could not save the changes. Anyone know why?
Thanks.

I’ve had a similar problem – reported on Github a few months ago.

Thanks for info. You are right: All the cross references are gone when trying to edit the entry. Probably the reason but I guess only the admins can fix that.

I’m not sure exactly what the issue is. I tried messing around on the dev server. I first tried ‘moving’ the page by creating another page and merging adventure into that. That deleted all the cross references but kept everything else. It still didn’t work; I couldn’t edit the new page.

I tried deleting some of the dozens of download links. It still didn’t work, but it gave me an error message of ‘you must select a file type for each download’. I tried deleting every link, and then I was able to edit.

So I think the issue lies in the download links; it may be worth looking through and seeing if one of theme has no file type selected.

Thanks, that makes sense.

I will be busy for a while but if anyone checks the download links and find anything, please let us know.

This may not be related, but it looks like there are four download links whose titles begin with adv770, and all of those are broken. They are all IF Archive links.

There are 20+ games cross-referenced on the IFDB page (spoofs, adaptations, etc.), and as JTN said on github, one of those game listings (labeled “Not Found, by Unknown”) seems to no longer exist.

But if you click “edit this page,” no cross-references show up on the edit page.

Is it possible for one of the mods to go into the database and remove the cross-reference to the game with the ID number 8m21t579k7rpl6k7?

(Oops, I missed that someone already said this above!)

Did the cross references get deleted from the underlying data tables, or was it that the cross-references weren’t visible on the edit page?

Right now only @dfabulich has easy access to the main databases. I’m not sure if my experiment removed the references entirely or not on the dev server, I’d have to check.

Edit:
Looking further, on the dev server my action made all references on other pages that point to adventure go blank, like:

So I’m definitely not going to do this on the main page!

I’ve fixed it.

I started by reproducing the problem on my machine. When I tried to save, I saw this on the PHP console:

ifdb-web-1 | [Thu Nov 16 04:18:48.149014 2023] [php7:warn] [pid 33] [client 172.20.0.1:41472] PHP Warning: Unknown: Input variables exceeded 1000. To increase the limit change max_input_vars in php.ini. in Unknown on line 0, referer: http://localhost:8080/editgame?&id=fft6pu91j85y4acv

I know you're curious, so click here to see the 1,010 input variables.

As you can see, it’s mostly related to the links; there’s just too many! I believe each link has 10 variables, and there are 97 links on this page.

MariaDB [ifdb]> select gameid, games.title, c from games
join (
  select gameid, count(*) c from gamelinks
  group by gameid order by count(*) desc limit 10
) as a on a.gameid = games.id order by c desc;

@dfabulich, thanks for making the page editable again!

The cross references were still missing from the edit page when I checked just now.

Cross references are one-way; you have to edit the page that references Adventure, not Adventure itself.

On those pages, it looks like this:

Which means, I think, that we can’t get rid of the ‘unknown’ spoof game without directly editing the database.
