About this board

Post your feedback about using the visual editor.

If you have never provided feedback before, you can learn how to do it effectively. If you are reporting a problem directly on this page, please include your web browser, computer operating system, and wiki skin (usually Vector, sometimes Monobook). The feedback tool within the visual editor will include your user agent details instead.

You can use this page to tell the Wikimedia developers your ideas and issues about using the visual editor: this is the only feedback page actively monitored by WMF staff. The Contributors team welcomes your feedback and ideas, especially on user interface decisions and the priorities for adding new features. All comments are read, in any language, but personal replies are not guaranteed: the team will try and go through reports here at least once a week. Need more attention? Report directly in Phabricator. Please note that the Wikimedia Foundation does not provide support for installing VisualEditor on third-party wikis. Please report bugs involving Parsoid at Talk:Parsoid instead.

You may also want to read a guide to optimize the visual editor's experience on your site, which details work necessary on the community side (such as translating or setting up citation systems).

Copy paste in article in mobile gives only plain plaintext

Ugog-public (talkcontribs)

I've just did a volley of edits on VE mobile and noticed copy pasting didn't include all the markup like it does on regular desktop. I only got plaintext and was forced to use source editing. A known issue? I'm on Android+Chrome.

Is there a way to paste hyperlinked text without manually re-adding the links?

Mikepsinn (talkcontribs)


Does anyone know if there's an extension or way to copy and paste hyperlinked text without having to manually re-adding the links yet?

Thanks! :D

@Mikepsinn Have you tried giving the hyperlinks a ref name=? You can try that because once it has a ref name and you click on preview you can just use the ref name from the dropdown list for the remainders.

@PotsdamLamb Thanks for the response! I haven't tried that.

I really mean that I would like to just copy one of our usernames on this page for instance and paste it into an article and it would retain the hyperlink like it has on this page. However, it just converts it to plain text.

I realized that it seems to be possible with the TinyMCE editor, but I like the VisualEditor better.

So for the user name you can do the typical ping, hi, yo, etc. or if the person is in a discussion thread you can click the person icon on the bottom of the with a plus and select the name from the list. Can you show me an example or link me to the page you are trying to do this on and what you want to do?

Apparently, this is due to   inside alt=. Is this a bug or a feature?

L'espai que ocupava el cadafal per a l'execució està marcat en el terra de la plaça.

El seu enclavament actual fou una decisió política i de disseny de la plaça.

Gustatuko litzaidake jakitea nola sar daitezkeen koloreak tauletan. Kasu honetan sailkapen bat egiten ari naiz eta lehenengoa kolore berdez jarri nahiko nuke (igoera lortu duelako) eta azkeneko 5 taldeak aldiz gorriz (jaitsi egin direlako)

Can someone help me with my VisualEditor? Getting Error contacting the Parsoid/RESTBase server (HTTP 400)

2603:7000:CD00:653C:5887:5688:A27B:FFE4 (talkcontribs)

I am running 1.36 and the VisualEditor is suppose to work out of box but it keeps giving me that error. I do not need a RESTBase as I have enabled $wgVisualEditorAllowLossySwitching= false; I am not sure what else is the problem. I am running a public wiki, you can find it at
