2017 wikitext editor - WMF's schizoid software series is spreading further

Vedmaka (talkcontribs)

Seems nice at first glance, why do you think it is going to be bad ?

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

It adds a dependency to a software (VisualEditor) which is still serving in alpha quality and slows down editing. I fear that this will also impact power users since switching between the modes currently appears to be an issue. I am not even speaking about wikis which cannot afford to run parsoid for one reason or the other. Still a long way to go. Let's see what happens.

Vedmaka (talkcontribs)

Oh, I did not dig it too much, thought it is going to be just a beautified UI for source editing. But if they're going to use Parsoid, it will be a really weird solution. Though, I see no reason for Parsoid there, because Parsoid primary task is to convert html into wiki markup and vise-versa, it's unnecessary when dealing with raw source code. We'll see.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I also personally see no reason to use Parsoid, perhaps for switching somehow between the modes. Still, in case we need VisualEditor we also need Parsoid.

Whitch extension do you use for this great talk site

JOEKKarl (talkcontribs)


I am new in Mediawiki. Whitch extensen do you use for your talk page?

Thank you

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I like this one too. It is the Flow extension which was automatically activated for me since I used the precursor extension on my talk page before. However, I think it is currently not possible to manually activate this on a talk page. You will have to request this. Cheers

Changed status on UserPageEditProtection extension

Summary by Kghbln

UserPageEditProtection works with the MediaWiki 1.27 branch.

Christharp (talkcontribs)

Hi I noticed that you changed the info box on UserPageEditProtectin from being unmaintained to stable. However you keep the note about the extension still being unmaintained, which leads me to believe that you found the extension currently works with 1.27. Am I making a correct assumption? As always thanks for any insights you can give. All the best to you

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Yes, this extension works with MediaWiki 1.27.x so we are safe till June 2019. :) When it comes to the overall status the following thread contains still valid information.

It will be nice if you could post future extension specific questions on the extension's talk page since I am afraid that no other interested party will have a look here on my talk page. You can do a ping from there.

Summary by Kghbln

I support only easy fixes so it is labelled "unmaintained" as a precaution.

Christharp (talkcontribs)

Hi just wondering why Extension:UserPageEditProtection is marked as unmaintained by you when it seems a new updated version just came two months ago and this version came out after the extension was marked as unmaintained. Was thinking of using the extension, but the unmaintained thing has me confused (especially since there's lots of extensions that seem not to have been updated, or changed, for a far longer time). Thanks for any insight you can gave.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Hi, this is a matter of caution. I am not really a programmer so I can only do basic stuff. In case something goes wrong I may not be able to fix it. Basically I do not want to make false promises and that is why I marked it as unmaintained. However I found this extension useful and this is why I have it deployed on some wikis. I do however think that it is not an overly complicated extension so in case something does not work it will hopefully be easy to find someone who can help. Cheers

Thank you for the kitten. :)

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Thanks a bunch. (talkcontribs)

You just changed the status from unmaintained to stable. I made today some modifications to reflect the the new loading mechanism for extensions. Shall I contact now Tom Hutchison? I asked alreay today Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason if he minds if I maintain the extension for the moment (he does not mind). --Sigbert (talk) 11:47, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

This extension seemed to be unmaintained but still working for a while until I discovered Tom's version today. I guess it will be best if we all work on the code on GitHub to avoid heaps of forks and duplicate effort. So it will be great if you open a pull request on GitHub with your changes. Tom has been very helpful in the past and he could merge your adaptations in.

Hey Aldnonymous, of cause I will unblock you and you are not disturbing me at all. Recently we had a lot of spammers but it is getting more and more difficult to fight them. I was not sure about your username so I passed a hint for you. Cheers

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

Oh, this was an autoblock. Done. Hmm, you should have been able to log in and edit your user page anyway. I will investigate. Cheers

Dan Bolser (talkcontribs)
