Done. Note that some of your translation units are very large, and you might benefit from splitting them up.

Old version of the Support page for anonymous users

I just checked the logged-out version of the Support page. However, for some reason no new edits from 3 hours ago are showing up.

Did a hard-refresh for both logged-out and logged-in versions. Checked on Chrome and Firefox.

Anyone else having the same issue?

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

I just checked and saw topics from an hour ago.

AhmadF.Cheema (talkcontribs)

Still having the same issue.

Appears to be related to user IP. Using an HTTP proxy from Slovakia, is showing 2 days old posts on the Support page. Korean proxy is showing the hours-old ones mentioned in OP. Canadian and Bolivian proxies appear fine.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

I can also confirm that it displays topics older than 2 days ago.

Apparently, the problem is because it's a redirect, and the page is not purging the redirect URL, only the main support desk. I wonder if this is also a problem for redirects to non-structured discussions pages...

AhmadF.Cheema (talkcontribs)

Yes, Project:Support is working fine, while Support is still frozen at the time mentioned in OP which is 15 hours now.😕

Improving the mediawiki.org frontpage

I'd like to discuss potential improvements to https://www.mediawiki.org/ (the front page itself), both regarding content and presentation, as I see several issues with the current page.

I propose to discuss this in several stages:

* Defining audiences,

* defining content per group,

* defining presentation and layout.

My main intention are improvements to allow our audiences to better find the relevant information that they are looking for.

We might not be able to make everything perfect but we can certainly try to make it better?

If this sounds interesting, please take a look at MediaWiki/Homepage improvements 2018

and let's discuss on the corresponding discussion page and work on this? Thank you!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

While there has not been a lot of feedback to this posting, most of it was pretty helpful. You can find the results under https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki/Homepage_improvements_2018#Audiences

The next step is to decide on the content. An initial proposal and explanations of related challenges can be found under https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki/Homepage_improvements_2018#Content

It's not too different from the current content and tries to use clearer phrasing, avoids some of the current content duplication, removes a smaller number of some currently unhelpful pages and adds better information mostly for sysadmins and people who heard about MediaWiki for the very first time.

If this sounds interesting, please take a look at the link above and let's please discuss on the corresponding discussion page! Thanks!

Can't create a translation of page

(Error details: You do not have permission to create new pages.) is diplayed.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Can you post the page you were trying to create, and in which language?

Pacyuchina (talkcontribs)
Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

The page exists since 21 February. I don't see what's the problem here.

Pacyuchina (talkcontribs)

But when i'm trying to rename it, or make some corrections there is a "You do not have permission to create new pages" warning(


Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

You may need to BUGREPORT it for someone else to check what would be the problem. Please post exact steps to reproduce (if you want to rename the page, provide the exact page destination. If you are making changes, describe exactly what changes or post the contents of the page that you're tying to save but that gives error)

Request to add a link to an up-to-date code version for the TikiWiki to MediaWiki conversion manual

BjoernLudwigPTB (talkcontribs)

Some colleagues and me recently worked on the code of Manual:TikiWiki Conversion and I thought I might add our work to this wiki page. Since we used Git and GitHub to do the coding (and will in the future to continue) I would like to add a link to the repository and invite everybody interested in the conversion to join in our work on GitHub. Do think it is possible to let me add the link? The present version of the page already contains external links and I think our external link adds usefulness to the page. When we set up the repo, we even inserted all history that could be found on the wiki page, but still decided to not continue working on the code as part of the page but use a more modern coding approach by using a public GitHub repo.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Please go ahead. The current code seems to be old

BjoernLudwigPTB (talkcontribs)

Thanks a lot for the quick reply. It is indeed old. That is why we started working on it.
