Thank you for appreciating my work here and trying to do my best. Nice to know that this does not happen unnoticed.

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Not only that, but you're updating existing pages, which is often so much harder than writing pages from scratch. :-)

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I do not think that it is harder, but it indeed may take more time.

Extension:ContactPage "No email address"

BradLeeBH (talkcontribs)


I am having HUGE troubles getting your ContactPage extension to work with my wiki.

I'm getting the following error message on Special:Contact DESPITE specifying a valid email in LocalSettings.php

"No email address

This user has not specified a valid email address."

I'm using MW 1.25.2 with the master branch of ContactPage, (although the 1.25 stable ContactPage does the same thing).

The syntax I'm using is: 'SenderEmail' => 'admin AT smiliepedia DOT org',

NOTE: This *is* also the default $wgPasswordSender which also works for sending/receiving emails, just not with this extension.

Can you please assist me with getting it to work?

Kind regards, -- User:BradLeeBH

Hi BradleeBH, well this is not an extension I developed and as a matter of fact I am not even a programmer. However, I answered on the extension's help page. Cheers

BradLeeBH (talkcontribs)

Sorry, I saw you had replied on some of the threads and mistook you for one of the extension developers.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

No worries. I use this one too and the docu was pretty bad back when. So I helped answer questions as good as I can.

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.
