New way to enter a database name

GeoffreyT2000 (talkcontribs)

Goodbye USE databasename; and hello typing databasename in the box above the word "SQL".

So, if you have any old queries, then before running them again, you should remove the "USE" statement at the top and instead type in the database name in the box above the word "SQL".

Is the box going to have a text next to it saying that it's for the database name? Also, nothing currently happens when I click 'Submit'.

Let me say that this is absolute bullsh** now, no matter which DB Name I enter ...nothing happens..query never gets executed.

There are reports of some problems, please be patient or share yours there.

This is OK I guess, although I don't see any real benefit. Maybe if database prompt was a drop down list.

Matěj Suchánek (talkcontribs)

Such a drop down list would be around 900 items long...

I don't have a USE databasemame; in my query, which used to work before and now is broken without explanation.

Where can I find a list of these 900 darabases?

What is the name of the English Wikipedia database?

Wbm1058 (talkcontribs)

That's "databases". How can I edit my post to correct a typo?

Wbm1058 (talkcontribs)

I see it worked with "enwiki". You could make that the default to give ppl a clue

I had an old query that cross referenced commonswiki_p and enwiki_p to find redirects on enwiki hiding commons files. Is there a new way to reference multiple databases, or have we just lost this ability?

Matěj Suchánek (talkcontribs)

It's lost (forever).
