Disable VE for specified pages/categories?

Jamesmontalvo3 (talkcontribs)

Is there a way to specify that a page or category does NOT use VE? We have certain pages that are handled by Semantic Forms or are for other reasons not very VE-compatible, and we'd like to remove VE as an option for them.

there has been ongoing debate about using pay-walled references.

is there thought of integrating the Open Access button into the "generate references" feature ?

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Interesting idea. What would such a button do? Replace the link with an OA version? Add it as an alternative/archive URL?

Ocaasi (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I think there would be an additional icon/link next to each reference. Each would be preloaded to send a query to OA Button inputting that citation information into an OA Button request for access.

Ocaasi (WMF) (talkcontribs)

That would be so cool.

Slowking4 (talkcontribs)

yes, let's say you input a doi, and it gave you link to a paywall; is there a way to integrate an OA search in the generate function to also link to OA source? the doi field would link to paywall and url field link to OA source, per the template:cite journal on english

or have a button / bot to search OA for existing references?

a lot of coding, but it would go a way to counter criticism, by saying "we are minimizing paywalls by linking to all possible OA sources"
