There is more info about me on my global user page on meta-wiki.

Sadly I am on a medical leave of absence from work. If you need to reach me, send a Google Hangouts message

Flow board links[edit]

Linker knows that an empty Flow board doesn't exist, so it adds &action=edit&redlink=1 to the URL and and shows it as a redlink. But action=edit is invalid for a Flow board and currently throws an exception.

Test Hovercards (Popups) links[edit]

  • LQT pages:
    • LQT thread elements


Bugs:

  • Hovercards don't work right for Flow boards
  • Flow board should show an icon indicating it's a Flow board
  • "Questa pagina di discussione è stata sostituita da una bacheca dei flussi." appeared for Talk:Sandbox
  • I disabled SVG support and image appeared misaligned

Test references[edit]

They work differently in Flow, bug 60017 and Flow post. Here:

Test images[edit]

bug 61786

The protagonists of "Farewell Anatolia" live in a little Greek Village near Ephesus, like Şirince (pictured).

Compare with http://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Topic:Rylar2mda6g0d4fz.

  • If you edit your Flow post you can see the Flow image adds a link= parameter, bug 69152.
  • It doesn't have the magnify icon.
  • The bottom of the image frame is clipped.

The weird link parameter[edit]

Şirince (doyler79).jpg

Regular Ascii link parameter.


Parsoid's generated link parameter doesn't even display properly. Here are the contents of that topic:

link=File:%C5%9Eirince_(doyler79).jpg

Where did the "link" parameter come from? It doesn't work well in wikitext, see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:S_Page_%28WMF%29#Test_images

link=File:%C5%9Eirince_(doyler79).jpg

Just the image with the special characters.

link=File:Manet,_Edouard_-_Le_D%C3%A9jeuner_sur_l'Herbe_(The_Picnic)_(1).jpg

Another image with accented characters, but not at the start.

Image border clipping[edit]

In Parsoid output, this is missing a lower margin, {{bug}69157}}.

welcomecreation -> welcomecreation-msg change[edit]

TODO add a note about this to RELEASE-NOTES.1.21

(see wikitech-l mailing list thread of December 4, 2012)

bug 42215 made the title of the page you see on account creation "Welcome, Username". To make this fix I split the welcomecreation message into two messages:

welcomeuser
'Welcome, $1!' — the new title of the page
welcomecreation-msg
"'Your account has been created.
Do not forget to change your MediaWiki preferences.'

and this change is live on WMF wikis running 1.21wmf5.

The subpage /welcomecreation messages lists all these messages that exist (on 205 wikis!)

I suspect some of these messages may replicate what's already in the default message.

On wikis that have customized the MediaWiki:welcomecreation message and want to preserve the customization, an admin may need to

  1. move it to MediaWiki:welcomecreation-msg (without leaving a redirect)
  2. remove the "== Welcome, $1==" heading line from welcomecreation-msg
  3. log out and create a dummy account to see if it works

A workable approach to git/gerrit[edit]

IRC cloak request[edit]

This m:IRC/Cloaks stuff is quite obscure. I'm spagewmf on IRC, somehow this can make me appear as ~spage@wikimedia/spage ??

Subpages[edit]

Various bits and pieces I've worked on:
