https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/M101 is one of the biggest mocks Design Team has added to Phabricator. A few weeks(?) ago it stopped being displayed with

Exception

Attempting to add more metadata after metadata has been locked.

Not about the Phabricator software, hence off-topic. Use the MediaWiki support desk for MediaWiki questions.

Hello I'm new. All my work is in order (https://wiki.sheki.site/) . I only have 2 problems; One of these is that I can not create some files. For example, Module: Citation / CS1 / styles.css has no content How do I create this? The document contains errors. Written: "Are you sure you want to save?" Then it is written: Error: Lua error at line 1: unexpected symbol near '/'. What do I have to do? Thanks in advance.

Hi. This is unrelated to the Phabricator software, hence closing here. Please refer to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:Support_desk and use a more descriptive summary when posting there (otherwise every posting would be called "I need help"). Thanks for your understanding!

Column triggers

MBinder (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I noticed a new option in columns: 3 gears with an option to choose "New trigger..."


This leads to a Herald-like page that automates an action when tasks enter a column.


I searched but found no documentation for this. Does it exist? I know this is a feature some have asked for, and would like to know if I can disseminate knowledge about this feature to teams. :)

MBinder (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Found https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T227300 too, so I may have answered my own question. It also sounds like maybe I should wait to disseminate widely, in case there is a performance hit as yet discovered.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Yeah, new feature; @MModell (WMF) said he was exploring the feature.

MModell (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The workboard trigger feature is currently fairly simplistic but there is no reason to keep it a secret. In fact I'm in the process of writing a blog post about it. Any early adopter feedback would be welcomed. I don't think much formal documentation exists, currently, however, the planned improvements for triggers are documented in this upstream task.

I think the biggest gotcha which should be documented is that triggers only work on workboards. Consequentially, triggers are not enforced when you use the "move on workboard" action from a task's comment box.

Is there a complete list of Wikimedia fork differences from the upstream Phabricator? If it is, I'd like to see it.

Cntlsn (talkcontribs)

Hello! I am trying to upload a gif in a phabricator task comment and receiving an error.

- I click on the upload icon

- I select my gif file (5,2MB)

- It starts uploading with the percentage reaching 100%

- Then it shows the following message:

Upload error

[filename].gif

Exception: No configured storage engine can store this file. See "Configuring File Storage" in the documentation for information on configuring storage engines.


Here is a link to a screenshot.

Intended name not supported by the system. Request withdrawn and marked as resolved.

G(x) (talkcontribs)

Hello. Following the return of my use of the most established username, I would like to rename myself in Phabricator to be in consistent with my unified account. Therefore:

Please rename the user "Vg_thWIKI" to "G(x)"

Thank you for your help.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi, your preferred name is not supported by Phabricator: Usernames must contain only numbers, Latin letters, period, underscore and hyphen, and can not end with a period. They must have no more than 64 characters. Spaces should be replaced with an underscore (_).

A small language related doubt

Adithyak1997 (talkcontribs)

I have recently posted a comment in one of the tasks in phab. In the task T220272, i searched for getting some thumbs up like symbol. But unfortunately I ended up with memes. I actually doesn't know what memes is. Now comes my real doubt. Please reproduce the following steps:

1)Just click on the last icon named meme which is present in the toolbar of adding comments in a task.

2)Now, you will be able to see a box with three fields. My doubt is, why does the translation of the text Llama Diorama not happening even when I have selected my language as English (United States).

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Because "Llama Diorama" is the string in English. :) Memes are not to be taken very seriously.

If you for some reason are looking for a thumbs-up symbol, "Award token" might be what you're looking for.

Hi, my profile (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/RheingoldRiver/) currently looks like this: https://puu.sh/BriD2.png. I think it's because I have two external accounts linked because I temporarily didn't have access to this login at the time I made the account. When I searched the bug it seemed like an administrator would have to fix that for me, is this the right place to ask for help? Or if not, where should I? Thanks!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

That looks like https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T75720. Assuming that you can log into Phab, could you file a ticket on phabricator.wikimedia.org in the Phabricator project and mention T75720? Thanks!

RheingoldRiver (talkcontribs)

Done, hopefully I put it in the right place. Thanks!

RheingoldRiver (talkcontribs)

I think I may have done this in the wrong place, can you link me to the right place to open this as an issue?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
RheingoldRiver (talkcontribs)

Okay, tried again. Sorry for the trouble, and thanks!
