We have a problem in Telugu Wikipedia. While in Transliteration mode, it prints English character also besides printing Telugu character. For example, if I press 'd' key, it should print the Telugu character "ద్", where as it is printing "ద్d". This is observed in the last two days. I am using Windows OS and Chrome 61.0.

This problem is not there in the editors of Telugu Wikisource or Wikidata.org.

Can you tell me more about how you're editing (browser, OS, scripts, gadgets...)? Also, which page/article were you trying to edit?

Are you able to edit any article, ever?

When this happens, are you having problems with your internet connection?

Igel B TyMaHe (talkcontribs)

yes, i often edit with visual editor. This happens only in certain articles.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I can edit that article, and you edited it recently. Does it sometimes work for that article, and sometimes not?

Igel B TyMaHe (talkcontribs)

Yes, sometimes not and I think in particular section. This time it was opening section.

Suggestion: Always show the checkbox when the boolean type is added in the template insert dialog

Summary by Whatamidoing (WMF)
197.218.90.67 (talkcontribs)

Issue:

The checkbox only appears if the template exists on a page with either value of 0 or 1.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a template "testbool"
  • Add the following to the template:
<noinclude><templatedata>
{
	"params": {
		
		"p1": {
			"type": "boolean"
		}
	}
}
</templatedata></noinclude>
test {{{p1}}}
  • Go to test page
  • Click insert template
  • Insert "testbool"
  • Add p1

Expected

A checkbox to select or deselect (or unset) a true / false parameter.

Actual

The interface presents a blank text box.

Proposed solution

  • Always show the checkbox with false as the default, and unset it (e.g.{{testbool}}) when the user
  • removes the parameter from the insert dialog

Alternate solutions

Notes: It was initially quite confusing that the value 1 or 0 must be set to see the checkbox. It took me quite a while to figure that out. Even setting the parameter default as 1 doesn't make the checkbox initially appear.

197.218.90.67 (talkcontribs)

One benefit of the alternative solution is that this would also resolve the problem discussed in Topic:Tiazyrpyuav76l53.

Having a tri-state toggleswitch would allow users to remove the template parameter by setting it to the third state (undefined). This in turn could be interpreted as either :

{{testbool|p1=}}

Or

{{testbool}}

The first is probably best for visualeditor because it would differentiate between someone adding a parameter and leaving it undefined, and someone never adding that parameter. Although the second example would probably be preferred by editors.

For aligning text in a table cell, see phab:T103276.

Do you want to align text outside of a table?

A la 1º taula he afegit la darrera temporada 2016/17 però queda més gran (no sé perquè). A la taula de colors de sota l'hauria completat però no sé com col·lorejar els quadrats.

https://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primera_Divisi%C3%B3_femenina_de_futbol_d%27Espanya#Participants now contains all of the necessary cells. However, you can't change the background colors within the visual editor. You need to switch to the wikitext (source) editor do that.

Hello! First of all, congratulations for the job your are doing with the VE! It's really useful for newcomers. I am writing from Basque Wikipedia because we have a problem with the the automatic citation (URL, DOI edo PMID). It doesn't just work and I don't know why. Could somebody take a look and see what happens? Thank you in advance! -Xabier Cañas (talk) 16:59, 27 September 2016 (UTC)
