Can't deactivate flow in my talk page

Vorlod (talkcontribs)

Hi, yesterday I turn off flow beta in frWP. But the bot has off. thanks

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)


Quel est le souci précisément ? La désactivation de la fonction Beta ne fonctionne pas ?

Vorlod (talkcontribs)

Bonjour, j'ai désactiver flow dans les paramètres bêta et après 10 jours ma page est toujours flow. Merci

No preview on Wikidata

Summary by Trizek (WMF)

"Enable the visual editor and the new wikitext mode in Structured Discussions" option in preferences solved the case.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

I've been using Structured Discussions on Wikidata, and I can see some of the advantages, but I cannot understand why there is no "Preview" feature. I see that there is such a feature here on MediaWiki. Why would it be absent on Wikidata? Are we running an older version? Is it misconfigured in some way? Am I missing something obvious?

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Help:Structured_Discussions/Quick_tour#Editing_basics says:

If you have opted-out the 2017 wikitext editor and/or the visual editor, you will have a simple wikitext fieldset to post or edit a reply, with no toolbar.

Could this be related? Should I file a bug report?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

All wikis have the same version. I see the toolbar and the preview.

You may have a conflict with another script or gadget. See how to investigate it.

Bovlb (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the pointer.

  • Using safemode does not resolve the problem.
  • In debug mode, I don't see any unusual messages on the console when I use Structured Discussions. I do see the usual many error messages about trying to load insecure fonts from Google, and also two usual warnings:
    • This page is using the deprecated ResourceLoader module "mediawiki.ui". Please use OOUI instead.
    • JQMIGRATE: jQuery.fn.offset() requires an element connected to a document

A couple of follow-up notes:

  • I have filed phab:T227234 for this issue
  • The "many error messages about trying to load insecure fonts from Google" appear to arise from using the "Read Mode" Chrome extension.

Have you checked the "Enable the visual editor and the new wikitext mode in Structured Discussions" option in your preferences?

What pages can be translated on MediaWiki?

Сунприат (talkcontribs)

What pages of Flow documentation on the MediaWiki provided with markup for translation?

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The current documentation pages, are all too large, or too out-dated, and not well-written for translation. I want to research what the "Best practices" are, but I have not had time, recently.

Do you (or anyone) have favourite pages that you wish Flow would copy? (in layout and structure and wording).

Сунприат (talkcontribs)
Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Ah, thank you. That helps me understand which pages (and details) you want translatable. Yes, we will try to split the large Flow page into smaller sub-pages.

But I was also wondering, are there any other extensions/pages, that you really like, at mediawiki or other wikis? E.g. I will probably use these extensions, as a model or guide: [[Template:VisualEditor Portal/core]], [[Template:ContentTranslation Portal/core]], other?

No, I do not have favorite pages, which could be taken as a model.

Regarding integration of voting feature in 'Extension:StructuredDiscussion' .

Falcopragati (talkcontribs)

I wanted to know if there is any simple way in which a voting feature can be added to 'Extension:StructuredDiscussion' ...

One way can be to somehow integrate 'Extension:VoteNY' with 'Extension:StructuredDiscussion'. Is this possible ?

please guide me..

Reply to "Regarding integration of voting feature in 'Extension:StructuredDiscussion' ." (talkcontribs)

It seems like structured discussion cannot be posted by anonymous on wiki with recaptcha enabled, the recaptcha just keep on repeating after solving the recaptcha and click "add topic anonymously".

Is anyone experiences this issue and how to solve this problem or disable the recaptcha just for structured discussions?

I removed the check mark in Preferences > Beta Feature in, but it didn't work.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Sorry to hear that.

Have you try to click on the check mark again (have it checked, and then unchecked), save and reload your preferences page?

Otherwise, can you ask an admin to to the move? I'll ask to investigate the causes.

searching for possible past discussions

Roy17 (talkcontribs)

Is it possible? When I want to initiate a discussion, I'd try checking if the topic has been discussed before. How can I search by keywords within a specific SD? Similar to how one would do with the old-fashioned search in archives?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

At the moment, it is not posible to search for specific discussions or archives. You can search on topics that exists, on a given page (« browse topics » under the page title).

We have open a global consultation about talk pages, where you can express your needs. Plus we look for volunteers to ask those questions on all wikis Maybe you could help for zh-yue? :)

How can I delete this comment?

Kim0051 (talkcontribs)

No way delete this commnet

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

You can delete a comment if you are a sysop/admin.

Alsee (talkcontribs)

If you hover your mouse over the ... icon you can "hide" a comment or a thread. However that only partially removes the content. The content is replaced with a conspicuous click-to-view link.

If you're on mobile or you otherwise lack a desktop mouse, I'm not sure if the ... options are accessible.
