About this board

PhotographerTom (talkcontribs)

Is there a explanation of each element of the format that you need to follow when adding tags (as seen on en:MediaWiki:PageTriageExternalTagsOptions.js)? We have added Extension:PageTriage to an enterprise wiki and would like to make better use of it. Since we did not have the vast majority of templates that Wikipedia has at it's disposal, we reduced the list down to just the stub template. Thank you for any help that you can provide! @Kaldari @Bsitu @Jorm (WMF)

Hi Danny, good point that the help link is missing. However the software currently only works at Enwiki, so I suggest that we just write a task to add one of those standard "Help" links to the top-right corner of the UI, which can then point to the existing docs at w:Wikipedia:Page Curation/Help. I wouldn't want to waste the time of translators (by making docs over here) if other communities can't use the feature. I hope that makes sense! I've filed it as phab:T224816 - patches welcome if you know how that all works!

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

They can use the feature, they just don't within the wikimedia cluster... what about the software makes it only work on enwiki? And yes, I am a bit familiar with how adding documentation links works - see phab:T224793

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi. I'm basing that comment on the second paragraph in Extension:PageTriage, and the long discussions elsewhere (with phab:T50552 being just the latest). :-(

Re: knowing how to add them, oh! excellent! maybe you have some advice for phab:T220147#5190275? :-)

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

Well, we could add a "see also" link to enwiki, but in the interest of making the extension more wiki-agnostic I personally think a page here would be better

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I believe the standard Help link indicators do usually point to this wiki by default, but they're contained in normal interface strings so local wikis can override them - I guess T224816 could best be solved by making the default link point to a very short page here (perhaps the page you're drafting), and then change the Enwiki link to point locally.

(For example, see how they've done it at w:en:MediaWiki:Search-helppage which changes the link in search results. However this is also a bad habit in some cases, because it can lead to badly-forked/outdated local docs :-( This example being a case-in-point, because I personally always want the more detailed info at Help:CirrusSearch on this wiki! >.<)

But to briefly repeat myself, my main concern is wasting any time of translators, so just don't write any extensive docs here (yet!), but a short page is probably good. HTH!

Unpatrolled pages aren't shown in Special:NewPagesFeed

Summary by KHarlan (WMF)

@DSwissK since there's a phabricator task in T204442, let's continue the discussion there OK?

Hello @Mattflaschen-WMF !

I've run into a new problem : the unpatrolled/unreviewed pages aren't shown in Special:NewPagesFeed

Oddly, if I review it (without the curation tool, by clicking on "mark this page as patrolled") and then unreview it (with the curation tool), the page magically appears in the https://dicoado.org/dico/Sp%C3%A9cial:NewPagesFeed

Any idea how to solve this ? Thanks !

Can visitors flag new pages, such that their manual flags will come up in your review tool?

How to add all pages as un-reviewed?

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

We've just added a bunch of namespaces, but PageTriage evidently thinks they've all been reviewed. How can I put them in the unreviewed queue?

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)
Mattflaschen-WMF (talkcontribs)

@MarkAHershberger I'm not sure.

If there is not yet support, it would be good to write a maintenance script using PageTriageHooks::addToPageTriageQueue (or an optimized equivalent).

Does it work outside wikipedia?

Lsilverman (talkcontribs)

I didn't see anywhere that expressly said this wouldn't work on the average mediawiki installation. I installed the extension on a wiki running 1.22.5. Ran update.php, Version page shows everything's ok.

My "New pages feed" is just plain empty. I've checked the filters and I have them all set for maximum results, yet no results are shown. The regular New pages page has plenty of results.

Not seeing anything in the apache error logs. Not sure what to try next. Any advice?

Using MW 1.23 and Postgres 9.2 as db and facing the same issue. Everything looks good, it even show the message " Please wait...", but then a blank grey box comes up.

Hi! I had the same problem.

MediaWiki version 1.25.2 and PageTriage version 0.2.1

I just fixed it changing in /PageTriage/includes/ArticleMetada.php all the lines (3 times)

$cache = ObjectCache::getMainWANInstance();


global $wgMainCacheType;

$cache = ObjectCache::getInstance($wgMainCacheType);

This could be wonderful...but..no Templates!

WmBliss (talkcontribs)

The PageTriage Extensions installs fine, but without any of its required tag '''Templates''', of which there are over 50, not including the embedded templates.

Is there a simple means of installing these? A root Template to Export?

Or, could the Extension be repackaged to auto-install these templates?

Hi, how can i configure this extension, no toolbar or any features available after installation ?!

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure it can be configured, most stuff in it was hardcoded for English Wikipedia's pages, templates and practices.

Hollosch (talkcontribs)

ah, ok... but how can o use these things after installation ?

Mattflaschen (talkcontribs)

What happens if you go to Special:NewPagesFeed after installation (make sure you run update.php)?
