About this board

Post your feedback about using the visual editor.

If you have never provided feedback before, you can learn how to do it effectively. 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.

You can use this page to tell the Wikimedia developers your ideas and issues about using the visual editor: this is the only feedback page actively monitored by WMF staff. The Contributors 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: the team will try and go through reports here at least once a week. Need more attention? Report directly in Phabricator. Please note that the Wikimedia Foundation does not provide support for installing VisualEditor on third-party wikis. Please report bugs involving Parsoid at Talk:Parsoid instead.

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).

Quand j'utilise comme source le site 411MANIA ( ) l'éditeur visuel confond le titre de l'article est le nom du site. Cela concerne ce site et aucun autre que j'utilise habituellement comme source.

Bonjour, Je viens de créer cette page et ça fait 2 fois que j'essais de la mettre à jour avec de nouvelles informations et lorsque je veux publier cela n'est pas possible. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi? Merci de bien vouloir regarder, bonne journée The Togs

It seems that VE inserts wrongly the tag as </br> instead of <br/>. Examples: most of these corrections involve tags added through VE. Thank you!

TheDJ (talkcontribs)

Nope. See they were added by this user, and the edit doesn't have the VE tag on it. The user likely made this mistake manually or copy pasted from another resource that does it incorrectly or something.

Epìdosis (talkcontribs)

I've said most of these corrections: all the cases regarding Greek mythology are due to VE (, , , , ... and tens of other cases).

Jagulin (talkcontribs)

This may be an old problem, but from the examples @GuroneseDoc may be able to share some insights on what happened. Copy-paste is not unlikely. I see that the "tags: Mobile edit Mobile web edit" may indicate that more than one edit method and I'm not sure if VE was one of them.

I have installed Visual Editor, but came up with an error, and woudl like som ehelp.

The error is:

Error loading data from server: no_vrs: The VirtualRESTService for the document server is not defined; see Would you like to retry?

I did find one reference to this error. It was in reference to SELINUX:

This error occurs usually on CENTOS 6 / 7 servers running SELINUX. In order to resolve this problem please disable SELINUX

I am running this on Debian 9

Can some one point me in the right direction as to why I am getting this, and possible a solution?

Thanks for your help

I'm not a technical person, so unfortunately I don't know anything more than it sounds like something related to RESTBase.

It's possible that you might get faster replies at the Project:Support desk.

Smokinjo67 (talkcontribs)

I posted the question to the general support help page, and no answer yet.

I am still on the look out for some help.


Smokinjo67 (talkcontribs)

I look forward to any help on this. I ma blocked, since this seems to beyond my basic knowledge.

Thanks for any help.

I'm sorry to hear that you ran into this problem. Usually, a 404 error means that there is a temporary internet problem. If you copy and paste the entire article, then often you can open the article in a new tab and paste the new version into it.
