No way to access PAWS. In Firefox I get a 503 Service Unavailable status code. Is it actually working? It worked two days ago, but not now...
Is it working?
Hi, Could you check now and let me know if it's still an issue? You are also welcome on #wikimedia-cloud where an admin is usually around to help with problems like these :)
Thanks for the tip on the IRC channel. PAWS' currently working and I've been finally able to run my first notebook. Thank you very much :-)
Attribute error for talk page
I am trying to post a message in the index_talk page to inform other contributors. But facing attribution error?
Terminal : // AttributeError: module 'pywikibot' has no attribute 'talk'//
My attribute (page = pywikibot.Page(site, booktitle)) for a page works fine for a wiki page. Like, what is the attribute for talk page?
(talkpage = pywikibot.?????(site, booktitle))
Have you tried to add the parameter
ns = , I mean:
talkpage = pywikibot.Page(site, booktitle, ns = 1)
1 is for main namespace talk pages, in Manual:Namespace constants you can check all the namespaces. I don't know what key number is for the namespace talk page you want to use.
I hope this works for you!
I tried as you instructed but failed. Afte sometime, i changed the input as a "talk page", it is now success. For example, earlier my input is "cat"; now input is "Talk:Cat". So there is no need to the change the attribution. I am still searching pywikibot's attribution list like below.
#pywikibot.Site = Select your language, project ('ta', 'wikisource')
#pywikibot.Page = site, pagename
Once again, thanks indeed for your earlier help "for the recent changes". Bye for now.
I am happy to know you success with your idea. I think the Pywikibot has to be improved, because this documentation has nothing now :/

How can i change the default edit summary
I am from ta.wiki and using PAWS for categorization, replace text,.. An example There the default edit summary is (Pywikibot v.2) (அடையாளம்: PAWS [1.2]). But i want to put my edit summary to ease the patrol of a sysop at the recent changes. Where i can do the edit summary customization?
Hi @Info-farmer! There are several ways to change the summary if you use Pywikibot.
You can use -summary: in your PAWS shell with the script that you want. Another way is set a message in your user-fixes.py, very useful if you use a fix to replace; you can read about it.
Good luck with your tasks!
still i am unable to use the -summary:
i created 2 files to add a category. One is list of wiki pages(category-list.csv) to add a category. Another is a python script page namely add-category.py in which the script is as follows:-
import csv import pywikibot with open('category-list.csv', 'r') as csvfile: reader = csv.reader(csvfile,delimiter="~") for row in reader: booktitle=row print (row) site = pywikibot.Site('ta', 'wikipedia') page = pywikibot.Page(site, booktitle) page.text = page.text+'\n[[category:தனியுடைமை மென்பொருட்கள்]]' page.save()
When i run the command at PAWS's terminal as bellow,
python add-category.py -summary:+category:தனியுடைமை மென்பொருட்கள்
nothing happens in the edit summaty. What is the procedure, i have to follow. I am a newbie.Please,guide me.
Don't worry @Info-farmer! I am not an expert but I can try to help you.
If you use
python add-category.py -summary:+category:தனியுடைமை மென்பொருட்கள் you should try to write the summary between " ", in that way:
python add-category.py -summary:"+category:தனியுடைமை மென்பொருட்கள்".
If it doesn't work for you, you can try to set summary text in your python script. To make that you have to add to
page.save() something like
page.save(summary="text"). You can read about in Pywikibot old docs.
I hope it could help you!
page.save(summary="text") method works fine. See the result The first terminal method is not working. Though English is not convenient language for me, i will read the refered old pywikibot page by you.. Thanks indeed brother !.
Glad to know you got it! Don't worry, if you have something more only ask, we are here to help between us.
Your welcome and good luck with your task!
