separator '''·''' in <languages/> not well rendered on translated pages

Summary by Wladek92

done. Need to purge the cache and force regeneration of the page after a new deployement occured to see the correction.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Hi all I just open page https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages

If my default page language is set to EN, page is ok and separator · is well rendered as a full round bullet. But now, when i switch to FR as always, I see that in this case, this separator is no longer interpreted and remains with quotes. Why ?

Autres langues :

English '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/fr|français]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/hu|magyar]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/pl|polski]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/ru|русский]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/zh|中文]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/ja|日本語]]

Thank you

.... appears also for other languages except EN can you chek first line and send for translation ? i corrected with a space, others use also {{ }} and i m a bit lost with what to use.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Sounds better replacing

<languages/> by {{Languages}}

ok updated in translatewiki / Mediawiki Core. Thanks all.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

We cannot declare solved because mediawiki still displays the error. How long does it take to have the Mediawiki Core correction made in translatewiki.net visible on the Mediawiki pages ?

The next update for this wiki will be on Tuesday, 9 July 2019 as part of the wmf.13 deployment.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

ok I follow this subject and then close if all is ok.

Wargo (talkcontribs)
Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Let us say OK ; the separator is very discrete but corrected:

Autres langues :

English · ‎français · ‎magyar · ‎polski · ‎русский · ‎中文 · ‎日本語

Thanks.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

I reopened the subjetc just because some pages seems NOT to support the actual correction : Example 1 : https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Talk_pages shows a BIG BULLET more visible instead of the small one:

Other languages: English  • dansk • Deutsch • español • français • Bahasa Indonesia • 日本語 • 한국어 • polski • português do Brasil • русский • 中文  

Example 2: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:Recent_changes_variables/fr seems indifferent to the correction :

Autres langues :
Deutsch '''·''' ‎English '''·''' ‎español '''·''' ‎français '''·''' ‎magyar '''·''' ‎polski '''·''' ‎português do Brasil '''·''' ‎日本語

Request to purge cache after each new deployment

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Following message "The next update for this wiki will be on Tuesday, 9 July 2019 as part of the wmf.13 deployment." I still see on my screen old messages indicating me that the corrections were not applied. In fact they were and Shirayuki proposed to use ?action=purge in the URL - and it works. Is it possible to reset the cache automatically to avoid such ambigous misinterpretations ? Thanks.

Summary by Wladek92

done. Thanks.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Hi all, on page https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Talk_pages following string which holds a specific markup is just used to illustrate an example and is consequently interpreted as an entry to the TOC !

== Soup == <!--T:15--> 

which provides:

Sommaire
1 Editing conventions on talk pages
1.1 Example
2 Soup
3 Editing discussions
4 Building articles - Discussing articles
5 User talk pages

Can anyone correct protecting this string in a given manner ? Thanks.

Christian Wia (talk) 10:15, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

Removed Soup from the TOC.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Hi all, When I first try to save my translation in French, I am trapped because I trigger a blacklist entry and cannot continue. Can anyone correct to deblock the situation ? Thanks.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Wladek92 What makes you think that you are banned? Nothing that you posted says that you are banned.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Échec de l’enregistrement de la traduction means I cannot save any thing of this page. 'Banned from creation' is output in the message. Please read the post completly, make the test yourself, or try to provide a solution if possible.

Hi, I edited the blacklist for you, can you try again now?

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Bingo ! Thanks , it is accepted now:

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Re-opened => the problem is now the same but with name space 'Category:' when I try to translate with => https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-Category%3AGoogle+extensions&language=fr&action=page&filter=%21translated

The filter should not select the namespace to be a bit wider. Thanks

Translations:Category:Google extensions/Page display title/fr

Category:Google extensions

94rain (talkcontribs)

I guess it would solve the problem if admins can add Extension:GoogleLogin\/.* and Category:Google extensions\/.* to MediaWiki:Titlewhitelist. Or, if it is appropriate, please allow autoconfirmed users to create pages with Google in the title in the Titleblacklist.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Yes I hope administrators are still present.

Krenair (talkcontribs)

Sorry, forgot about this. Try now?

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

sorry not good; we are now speaking of "Category:Google extensions"

Krenair (talkcontribs)

I know which titles you're talking about, I think I did it wrong. Try now?

Wargo (talkcontribs)

I think the whole blacklist line is unnecessary on this website.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

yes again i say it is wrong with msg

Échec de l’enregistrement de la traduction : The title "Translations:Category:Google extensions/1/fr" has been banned from creation. It matches the following blacklist entry: " .*g+(o+)g+le?\S?((?!Summer of Code\/\d{4})|(?!Code-in\/\d{4})|(?!Login)|(?!extensions)).*"

The first correction made by Krenair was ok; please do the similar for Category to unblock the situation.

Krenair (talkcontribs)

I think I know what's up, will rearrange this between the blacklist and whitelist to try to improve things.

Krenair (talkcontribs)

Try now?

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Failure again:

Échec de l’enregistrement de la traduction : The title "Translations:Category:Google extensions/1/fr" has been banned from creation. It matches the following blacklist entry: " .*g+(o+)g+le?\S?.*"
Wargo (talkcontribs)

Krenair, tip: you can use online regex testers. And again, consider removing this blacklist line.

Krenair (talkcontribs)

I'm trying to avoid removing the blacklist line. I've checked my latest whitelist change against regexr.com and it should match your title. If this fails I will remove the blacklist line as too problematic for legitimate users.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

bingo ! it works now. Thank you. Champagne !

I've added the first link. Is the second link relevant and where do you wish to put it?

Thank you for developing the skin.

Ognarb (talkcontribs)

Looks like the second link was already whitelisted, so I added it as an example. Thanks :)

Can't add exteernal links:

Enabling UserFeedback Gadget

Summary by RhinosF1

Done by Wargo

SSethi (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I would like to enable a UserFeedback Gadget on MediaWiki which is currently only deployed on Wikitech. With the help of this Gadget, a feedback form will be shown at the bottom of any page that is in the API namespace. Stats collected through this form will inform if the ongoing improvements to MediaWiki API docs are helpful or not! More information is here in the Phabricator task: T225584. I would like to know if there are any concerns anyone has in doing so. Thanks!

Wargo (talkcontribs)

Done. Test it by enabling it in preferences.

SSethi (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Wargo Thank you so much for your help with this. I've two small additional changes to request that I've added here: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T225584#5254847. It would be great if you could make these changes as well unless you see any concern in doing so. Thank you!

RTL Support for Wikidata Bridge

Summary by Mohammad

The issue was fixed.

Mohammad (talkcontribs)

I'm currently translating Wikidata Bridge into Persian (Farsi), as it's a right to left language, the styles created for Template:Wikidata Bridge/Header don't quite workout well. See here. I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to improve the looks of the page and fix the style.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)
Amire80 (talkcontribs)

Thanks a lot for the ping!

I think I fixed the CSS for the header. I don't see any other problems right now, but please tell me if I missed anything.

FunPL (talkcontribs)

I want to create an extension page for my project with GitHub links, but I can't. Can I have the links added or do I need to do something else?

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

Create the page for your project, pointing to your github user id and repo name, and we'll help you link it up.

FunPL (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the quick response!


I have created the page at Extension:MediaLoader

Over there at the top is my GitHub username and project name

Links to be added have "()" after them and within those there is a sub link. (Really sorry if this was poorly written, English isn't my native language)

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Done

FunPL (talkcontribs)

Thanks, but now I'm getting a 404 error when I'm trying to save. Is something down?


Edit: By that I mean when I click "Publish changes" a screen pops up saying "Something went wrong!" and under it it says "HTTP 404"

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

Does it work now? I'm guessing there was an intermittent issue.

FunPL (talkcontribs)

Yeah, but the visual editor is gone.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

I hate to say this, but "it works for me."
