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..

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.

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.

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.

If any bot will correct templates in old messages - date of the message will change too? Can Flow-bots not change date of the message?

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Ah, good point. (Also bot-edits would bump the "recent activity" for no reason). Filed as phab:T94711 - If you have any examples in mind, please add them there by editing the description. Thanks!

For the beginning, if possible, answer in French.

In the discussion with this gadget, the red links, if don't created before the message, stay red. And, in the description, if you include model, at a edit of the model, it stay in the version of the publication of description.

Thank you.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)


Quel gadget ?

Concernant les modèles dans la description, il y a effectivement un temps de mise en place plus long. Une modification sur un détail dans la description, autre que sur le modèle, permet de mettre à jour le modèle.

Bonjour @Trizek (WMF),

Dans ma pdd, par exemple, j'ai un modèle pour le menu. À chaque fois que je modifie le modèle, je suis obligé de supprimer le modèle sur la pdd, enregistrer, le remettre, et enregistrer, sinon cela ne marche pas.


Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)


C'est le souci que je décris également. Sans aller jusqu'à enregistrer, un couper/coller marche assez souvent.

Il n'y a pas de correctif de prévu pour le moment, car le futur des outils de discussion va bientôt être décidé.

I recall seeing a page on meta listing (current) disadvantages of Flow but I can't find it.

Myrtonos (talkcontribs)

It seems like a good idea for this extension to include provision to allow only users with appropriate permissions to edit other users' comments.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

That's the case.

I don't remember the specifics, but admins can edit others' comments. IP can't.

Can you edit my message?

Yes I can. --~~~

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

You're autoconfirmed. It may be the threshold to have the rights to edit my message.

Myrtonos (talkcontribs)

I hope that can be changed.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

What would be your suggestion?

Myrtonos (talkcontribs)

Maybe the same users that get to edit protected pages and system messages.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Be able to edit others' message is possible on unstructured wikitext talk pages. At least here, IP and not auto-confirmed users are prevented to edit.

For now, Structured Discussions are in maintenance mode. There is no strong development scheduled.
