I've made my first article using this tool: ca:Conillera (Eivissa), from en:Illa Conillera. Maybe some of them are already reported, but these are my issues:

  1. I've had some problems with wiki links and repeated references as you can see here.
  2. I couldn't edit wiki links to disambiguate terms in the destination page.
  3. When I clicked on the links on the source page (in my case, english), they opened (or tried to) in the destination wiki (catalan, in my case), arriving to pages like ca:Rosemary, that don't exist.
  4. It would be great to automatically add the proper template to verify Wikipedia license. It would be as simple as adding the template ca:Plantilla:Traduït de in the discussion page.

Hope it helps.

Hello, Thanks for your feedback. Its really helpful. For links, we plan to fix several issues including disambiguation in the coming weeks. For templates, we would like to prepare a long term solution that can handle the diverse range of templates that currently exist.

For the problem you mention as #3, could you please describe the exact steps that you followed? The expected behaviour is - clicking on the source column would display the link cards for source and target (if it exists) in the 3rd column. Clicking on the link in either of the link cards should take you to the exact page for that language thats being displayed. If this is not happening then its probably a bug. Thanks.

Thank you for your reply, Runab.

I have just made a simple click and the behaviour is the one you pointed. The click I made on the link, it was not a simple click but a center-click with the mouse, that opens the link in a new tab in most browsers. I have checked and it is the same with a right click - open in new tab option.

Maybe it's not the most common way to use this tool, but I am really used to open links in new tabs. I don't know if it's easy to fix it, but it would be a great improve. I suppose I am not the only one opening links in new tabs.

Thanks again.

I join the proposal for adding some template for attributing the original authors, like the mentioned d:Q5615431. As different wikis use different template, possibly different syntax and different place (in article or in tak page) , I propose that should be some setting for local wiki (system message?).

If it's technically possible, it would be a great improvement.
