Not editable

How do I create a pull request and new code branch for a phabricator project? I would like to create a PR for a code change to the AWB project. Maybe this is the wrong question to ask, but it seems like something maybe worth mentioning on this help page

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

It depends on the project. Most code is based on gerrit, but some isn't. For AutoWikiBrowser, according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser the code is managed out of https://sourceforge.net/p/autowikibrowser/code/HEAD/tree/ .

Is there a way to delete my dashboard and go back to the default dashboard?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I assume you could manage your authored dashboard(s) at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/dashboard/ by archiving it. Have not tested it though.

TerraCodes (talkcontribs)

Well, that kinda worked. It got rid of my dashboard, but now I can't see the default dashboard.

TerraCodes (talkcontribs)

Oh wait now the default dashboard is showing up - I just had to remove the old dashboard from my home menu. Thanks AKlapper~

Better emails content from edit of tasks

When we edit a task, we can receive emails.

Their contents are a mix of the old and the new version of the edited job description.

In the edited task, we can see the change of 2 colors for the old and the new version. This could be useful.

Unfortunately, the email is only in black and white, so it becomes very confusing.

In emails, we can respect the colors or only report the new version or use the popups Navigation way. See this option that you can activate in your preference gadgets:

Navigation Popups: Article previews and editing features appear when you hover over links.

This seems the best way with 2 colors and the old barred version.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The email is not only in black and white. The HTML version of the email is in colors when the task description has changed. If it's not for you then either your settings differ or your email client is broken.

As title; what can I do?

TerraCodes (talkcontribs)

@Wetitpig0: Do you use a Wikimedia account or a Labs LDAP account to login?

Is there a way to search for tasks that were marked Resolved between a set of dates?

MBinder (WMF) (talkcontribs)

"Updated Before" and "Updated After" are not as useful because often closed tasks are touched again (moved, tagged, etc), and this breaks the goal of looking at only the dates that tasks were resolved.

Perhaps the "Query (Prototype)" field?

It would also be ideal to filter on a board, if possible.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Yeah, this is a pain for me too. See https://secure.phabricator.com/T4434 for a long-stalled upstream task about this and wider concerns.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

This should be possible after we pull the next upgrade: https://secure.phabricator.com/rPe26a784dcf3e2e90c05229f3d6f71dfd9594348b

Resolved in phab:T151229

MarcoAurelio (talkcontribs)

Hello. Yesteday I've tried to close via email command a task assigned to me as resolved (phab:T150586). I've tried !close two times and !status resolved one time but the task didn't update. A couple of days ago I've also tried to raise the task priority via email command to phab:T150925 whithout success either. I'm not sure if this is happening just to me or you've just disabled this kind of operations. Thanks in advance for your help.

MarcoAurelio (talkcontribs)

The problem seems to be with email in general. I cannot issue email commands nor even reply to Tasks via email when it was possible before.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thanks for reporting this in phab:T151229. The problem (and its resolution) was also announced here, to help other people discover the issue.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Welcome to the help page about Wikimedia's Phabricator instance. Your username Wikimedia Phabricator is: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Zia-ur-RehmanRehmani/

Phabricator has no separate password - it is the same password as your password on mediawiki.org.

Zia-ur-Rehman Rehmanii (talkcontribs)

than you for that but it says that my password and username both are invalid so please if you ca change my user name just put an underscore between Reheman and Rehmani

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

What is "it"? If you want others to help you, please provide clear and exact steps which leave no room for interpretation. Which exact dialog with which title and which fields, on which URL / address, provides which exact error message?

Zia-ur-Rehman Rehmanii (talkcontribs)

sorry i meant to thank you but it got "than you" sorry again and thank you
