About this board

Post your feedback about using the visual editor.

If you have never provided feedback before, you can learn how to do it effectively. If you are reporting a problem directly on this page, please include your web browser, computer operating system, and wiki skin (usually Vector, sometimes Monobook). The feedback tool within the visual editor will include your user agent details instead.

You can use this page to tell the Wikimedia developers your ideas and issues about using the visual editor: this is the only feedback page actively monitored by WMF staff. The Contributors team welcomes your feedback and ideas, especially on user interface decisions and the priorities for adding new features. All comments are read, in any language, but personal replies are not guaranteed: the team will try and go through reports here at least once a week. Need more attention? Report directly in Phabricator. Please note that the Wikimedia Foundation does not provide support for installing VisualEditor on third-party wikis. Please report bugs involving Parsoid at Talk:Parsoid instead.

You may also want to read a guide to optimize the visual editor's experience on your site, which details work necessary on the community side (such as translating or setting up citation systems).

VisualEditor / new Wikitext automatically attempts to recover an incomplete edit.

But more often than not, I'm reloading a page because either VE encountered an error or I had made a mistake, so the recovered edit actually gets in the way of me making the edit I want.

Is there an easily accessible button to say "discard recovered edit and restart from the last saved edition"?

Pourquoi les pages de l'espace Wikipédia: ne peuvent-elles donc pas être modifié avec l'éditeur visuel ?

Nemo Le Poisson (talkcontribs)

Je remarque que tout ou une très grand partie de l'espace de nom Wikipédia: ne peut être modifié avec l'éditeur visuel et ce sur le Wikipédia en français mais aussi sur les autres.

Je ne comprends pas très bien pourquoi, l'éditeur gérant maintenant très bien les modèles et tout le reste. Cela m'aiderait vraiment, étant un féru de ce dernier.

Merci d'avance,

Nemo Le Poisson (talkcontribs)

I notice that all or a very large part of the [[Wikipedia:]] namespace can not be modified with the visual editor and this on the Wikipedia in French but also on the others.

I do not understand why, the editor now manages the templates and everything else. It would really help me, being a fan of the latter.

Thanks in advance,

Ça a été voté je ne sais plus quand, mais pour y remédier, il suffit de modifier l'URL : il te met quelque chose comme ça : ?action=edit ou ?veaction=editsource (ça dépend), il te suffit de remplacer par ?veaction=edit.

Oui c'est bien. J'aime bien le "magouille de l'URL".

Не вся страница доступна для перевода

Here's a screenshot about what's happening everytime I try to create or edit a page. The blue bar appears, load until ~70% then freeze.

I tried to check what's happening with firefox & chrome dev tools. Everything seems fine, here's a sample of a request json response.

{"visualeditor":{"result":"success","notices":["<p>You have followed a link to a page that does not exist yet.\nTo create the page, start typing in the box below (see the <a class=\"external text\" href=\"\">help page</a> for more info).\nIf you are here by mistake, click your browser's <strong>back</strong> button.\n</p>"],"checkboxes":{"watch":"<input name=\"wpWatchthis\" type=\"checkbox\" value=\"1\" tabindex=\"1\" accesskey=\"w\" id=\"wpWatchthis\" />&#160;<label for='wpWatchthis' id='mw-editpage-watch' title=\"Add this page to your watchlist [w]\">Watch this page</label>"},"links":{"missing":["Cpage"],"extant":[]},"protectedClasses":"","basetimestamp":"20150813153540","starttimestamp":"20150813153541","oldid":0,"content":""}}

It's like he doesn't try to load the next page, the form for page edition / creation.

It's a private wiki. MediaWiki's 1.25.2. I got VisualEditor-REL1_25-c947b49.tar.gz and UniversalLanguageSelector-REL1_25-7661826.tar.gz. Here is my conf

### UniversalLanguageSelector (prérequis Parsoid)     # wfLoadExtension( 'UniversalLanguageSelector' );     require_once "$IP/extensions/UniversalLanguageSelector/UniversalLanguageSelector.php";     $wgULSGeoService = false;     $wgULSEnable = false;     $wgULSIMEEnabled = false;

    ### VisualEditor     wfLoadExtension( 'VisualEditor' );     # require_once "$IP/extensions/VisualEditor/VisualEditor.php";

    $wgVisualEditorSupportedSkins = array( 'Vector', 'Apex', 'Monobook', 'Minerva' );

    # Enable by default for everybody     $wgDefaultUserOptions['visualeditor-enable'] = 1;

    # Don't allow users to disable it     # $wgHiddenPrefs[] = 'visualeditor-enable';

    # OPTIONAL: Enable VisualEditor's experimental code features     #$wgDefaultUserOptions['visualeditor-enable-experimental'] = 1;

    # URL to the Parsoid instance     # MUST NOT end in a slash due to Parsoid bug     $wgVisualEditorParsoidURL = 'http://localhost:8000';     $wgVisualEditorParsoidHTTPProxy = false;

    # Interwiki prefix to pass to the Parsoid instance     # Parsoid will be called as $url/$prefix/$pagename     $wgVisualEditorParsoidPrefix = 'wikidiff';

    # # Namespaces for VE     #$wgVisualEditorNamespaces = array_merge($wgContentNamespaces, array( NS_USER ));     $wgVisualEditorNamespaces = $wgContentNamespaces;

    # Timeout for HTTP requests to Parsoid in seconds, and for serializationcachetimeout     $wgVisualEditorParsoidTimeout = 200;     $wgVisualEditorSerializationCacheTimeout = 3600;

    # Réglage parsoid pour wiki privé     #     $wgSessionsInObjectCache = true;     $wgVisualEditorParsoidForwardCookies = true;

Anyone can tell me what the hell is wrong ? It's been two long days...

Did you resolve that issue somehow? When I turn on $wgResourceLoaderDebug VisualEditor loads. But without debug mode it freezes at 70%.

Jeroen N (talkcontribs)

This is happening to me more and more, to the point I've had to disable the visual editor altogether. The same goes for the 2017 wikitext editor. (talkcontribs)

I have the same problem. Without $wgResourceLoaderDebug it freeze by 70%. For testing, i disabled all other plugins. but it dosn't solve my problem. Any idea someone? (talkcontribs)

I had the same problem.

The root-cause was the VEForAll extension version not matching the mediawiki version.

I installed the correct version, and VE loaded without issue.

Bonjour, je travaille chez intitek et je souhaiterai pouvoir mettre correctement a jour la page wikipedia de l'entreprise. Pour cela j'aimerai renommer la page Intitek for industry (qui est une de nos filiales) en Intitek. J'ai la possibilité de modifier le contenu de la page mais pas son nom. Que puis-je faire et comment ?

Merci d'avance

@QuimGil, does cawiki require editors to be autoconfirmed to be able to create a new article?

Qgil-WMF (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure but in any case @Judith 018 is an autoconfirmed user now.

Hola Judith, pots tornar a provar aquest mateix enllaç que has compartit? A mi em funciona.

Hi, not sure if this is a VE problem or if it's a tool problem (if it's a tool problem, can anyone suggest where the best place to report this is?).

If you try to add a link from World Rowing, e.g. the 'add a citation' automatic option changes it to a link to just I'm not sure what's causing the behaviour. If you go in and edit it, you can change it to the correct one but that involves spotting that it's done that which might not be obvious to all users.

Redfiona99 (talkcontribs)

The |url= bit, because that should be the full long thing, not just the link to the home page.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

So yes, this is bad:

I'd guess it's a problem with redirection; zotero probably isn't pretending to be a browser well enough, and the website is thus redirecting us to their homepage, which is what we're then scraping, instead of the actual page desired.

The only solution for this to actually run a headless browser, which we actually used to do, but stopped for security reasons - so no real solution to this except for using the user-entered URL instead of the scraped URL; which we stopped doing for security reasons as well, but I'm considering changing back to using the user entered URL and manually trying to remove tracking IDs from it.

I've created a task for it: task T242089, but one worry I have with this, is that in this particular instance is that it masks that the metadata for this url actually came from and not the intended URL.
