The external link icon should be removed. It's also present in the protected News page.

Links are broken

Summary last edited by Legoktm 17:31, 17 May 2021 1 year ago

Fixed now. Please report issues with broken/missing pipermail links to phab:T280731.

Lens0021 (talkcontribs)

Links to lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/* are broken. Maybe it caused by mailman 3 migration.

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I think it might be mid-migration, or might have stopped half-way?

Currently for me, in Template:MediaWiki_News:

  • the links in the top half (and down to early 2012) all redirect to Mailman 3 correctly,
  • the link for "2012-02-29" leads to a 404 error
  • the links below that all go to Mailman 2.

If this hasn't changed a few hours from now, we can ping user:legoktm

That 404 is a bad link, I checked on the server and 058456.html is actually in March. So most likely someone tampered with the archives, renumbering them, and that link has been broken ever since.

More info?

I think her or he means that dates need to be translatable. I also believe that they should be translatable. I was just too fatigued to report or ask for it.

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

I just decided that we would use a single format. If we translate them, we will need to create a common template, hmm.

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

We can also use #time for them: {{#time:d xg Y|1988-02-28|de}} - 28 Februars 1988. With {{CURRENTCONTENTLANGUAGE}} in third parameter.

I have a suspicion that it is using the interface language, not the content language.

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Ah, right. I also just remembered that we use #time in Tech News every week. E.g. {{#time:<tvar|defaultformat>j xg</>|<tvar|date2>2020-09-30</>|<tvar|format_language_code>{{TRANSLATIONLANGUAGE}}</>}} so something like that is possibly what is needed here? (e.g. m:Tech/News/2020/39)

Iniquity (talkcontribs)

Hmm, yes, maybe that makes sense.

Taavi (talkcontribs)

Hi, according to this edit the remote hackathon is ends on May 10th instead of 11th, please fix the date under "Recent news". Thanks

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the pointer. The duration was amended on the template in the meantime.

Summary by Kghbln

Does not seem to be possible. Whatever.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

This one does not provide a feed or am I just too stupid to find it which is indeed within the range of possibilities.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I have given up on this blog.

Wugapodes (talkcontribs)

The news says it is in Daly City, California but when you follow the link it says the conference will be in Sandusky, Ohio. Can this be corrected?

TheDJ (talkcontribs)

done. thanks for pointing it out

ToBeFree (talkcontribs)

"2019-06-07" --> "2019-10-15"
