About this board

Post your feedback about using the visual editor. Please report bugs involving Parsoid at Talk:Parsoid instead.

If you are reporting a problem directly on this page, please include your web browser, computer operating system, and wiki skin (usually Vector, sometimes Monobook). The feedback tool within the visual editor will include your user agent details instead.

Use this page to tell the Wikimedia developers your ideas and issues about using the visual editor. The Editing team welcomes your feedback and ideas, especially on user interface decisions and the priorities for adding new features. All comments are read, in any language, but personal replies are not guaranteed.

Please note that the Wikimedia Foundation does not provide support for installing VisualEditor on third-party wikis.

You may also want to read a guide to optimize the visual editor's experience on your site, which details work necessary on the community side (such as translating or setting up citation systems).

Can you tell me more? What happened when you tried to save the page? I see that tr.wikipedia.org uses Flagged Revisions. Are your changes showing now?

No "editor visual" podiam substituir o botão "Citar suas fontes: <ref></ref>" por um popup com um exemplo de referência básica (citar web) para facilitar e ensinar os novos colaboradores. 

O citar fontes atual apenas insere no texto <ref></ref>, formando referencias incompletas (não recomendadas). ~~~~

English translation: In the "visual editor" they could replace the "Cite your sources: <ref></ref>" button with a popup with a basic reference example (cite web) to facilitate and teach new collaborators.

The current citation sources only inserts in the text <ref></ref>, forming incomplete references (not recommended).

Elilopes (talkcontribs)

Correction: in "source code editor" they could replace the button "Cite your sources" with a popup with a basic reference example.

Excuse me.

The team has talked about giving editors suggestions and examples.

Are you trying to teach new editors how to write wikitext, or how to add an automatic citation?

Elilopes (talkcontribs)

New editors how to write references

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

How are these new editors seeing <ref> tags at all? When they click on the Cite button, they should be seeing a box that they can fill in (either "Automatic" or "Manual").

Boa tarde,

O meu nome é Túlio Rossoni Prando, recentemente fiz várias edições no Wikipédia, nas atualizações dos títulos do Botafogo. A minha conta foi bloqueada e fui acusado de vandalismo, realmente eu não entendi, pois, só estava editando e colocando o que realmente era real, eu sou botafoguense e só estava atualizando, se fiz alguma coisa de errado, gostaria de saber o que foi, jamais colocaria inverdades ou coisas de vandalismo. Sou novo usuário do Wikipédia, portanto, não sei manuseá-la corretamente e por falta de experiência nesse programa, não sabia em qual aspecto estava errando. A pessoa que me bloqueou foi o EVinente, porém não consigo falar com ele, peço encarecidamente ajuda para resolver esse problema.

Atenciosamente.

@Elsa Santos, is your question about "following" edits to an article, that is, putting it in your watchlist? If so, you just need to click on the star at the top of it, and future changes can be seen via your watchlist link at the top of the page.

Great job guys, I just need a little help making it work on my install!

I'm getting a similar error to the one described here, but on my own installation of editor. http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.org.wikimedia.mediawiki.bugs/339542

It DID work previously with wmf4 and a snapshot of the editor at the beginning of June. Somehow upgrading it broke.

I've checked out the latest editor and the master version of MW as of June 9. I installed it again in a separate /wiki2 directory and got the same error:

 Error loading data from server: parsoidserver-http-bad-status: 404. Would you like to retry?

However, when I create a new page, the editor loads! But does not let me save the page. Error: Error contacting the Parsoid server in the review popup.

Is there anything wrong with the way I'm linking to parsoid?

 $wgVisualEditorParsoidURL = 'http://www.sitename.com:8000/';
 $wgVisualEditorParsoidPrefix = 'sitename.com';

The wiki is in /wiki directory. Thanks!

First, you should use the $wgVirtualRestConfig array instead of $wgVisualEditorParsoidURL & $wgVisualEditorParsoidPrefix.

Second, I came across issues like this, I couldn't find the issue in my apache error logs as I was trying to find out where it was looking and if there was some webserver translation going on. I ended up using wireshark to capture a trace of when I attempt to use VisualEditor, after some trial and error I was able to modify the Parsoid URL to what it required.

Other things to think about:

  • Can you read wiki pages from your parsoid instance? e.g. http://www.sitename.com:8000/<wiki_URL>/v3/page/html/<wiki_page>
  • Can you curl from your parsoid server?
  • Is your localsettings.js file on the parsoid server right?
Andreyshade84 (talkcontribs)

I have the same problem, my configs:

LocalSettigs.php:

$wgDefaultUserOptions['visualeditor-enable'] = 1;
$wgHiddenPrefs[] = 'visualeditor-enable';
$wgVisualEditorParsoidURL = 'http://mywiki:8142';
$wgVisualEditorParsoidPrefix = 'wiki';


settings.js:

parsoidConfig.setMwApi('wiki', 'http://mywiki/api.php');
parsoidConfig.useSelser = true;


Please help!

Arlolra (talkcontribs)

The link Raftab provided should help you out. I recommend you do that. But you can also try adding to the your configuration as is,

$wgVisualEditorParsoidDomain = 'mywiki';

I think that defaults to localhost but Parsoid will extract the mywiki from http://mywiki/api.php.

Either that, or set,

parsoidConfig.setMwApi({
  prefix: 'wiki',
  domain: 'localhost',
  uri: 'http://mywiki/api.php',
});

The point being that these all need to line up.

    • Could you please explain your findings with WireShark?
    • How did you modify the Parsoid URL?
      Thanks in advance.
