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).

בעורך קוד המקור הישן היה פיצ'ר מאוד שימושי - הוספת ניקוד עברי. לאנשים כמוני, שאינם מיומנים בניקוד באמצעות המקלדת, הוספת תכונה דומה לעורך החזותי יכולה מאוד לעזור. תודה רבה מראש!

Hey @Arnoldius, I am not seeing a problem on that page, (even if I switch to German as interface language)?

Hi, I prepare my article in my sandbox, than I paste it into the main article. But when I copy article from sandbox while VE is enable, my all links are goes to my sandbox instead of other wiki pages. You can see this.

Sandbox -

Please help me for this. Thank you. (Ping me when reply.)

@NehalDaveND I left a comment about this on Phabricator and added the product manager to that task.

NehalDaveND (talkcontribs)

Thank you so much. :)

I think this is a different problem. @NehalDaveND, when you want to copy a page with working footnotes (<ref> tags), you have to first open the page in the visual editor. If you copy the regular page (as if you're reading any other website), then it copies the links (the blue click-able numbers themselves) instead of the ref tags.

Fixing this requires a huge number of changes to how wiki pages are stored. (Basically, when you copy a wiki page, the normal page needs to be able to tell your computer that it's not copying a normal link.) It will be at least a year before that is truly fixed. In the meantime, if you open the page in the visual editor before copying, then the visual editor can provide that extra information.

The problem is not at the refs level, it's with wikilinks, isn't it?

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

What looks like [1] to us is actually a link to an anchor on the page. When the page is saved, the stuff that we type as <ref>Sample ref</ref> transformed into the HTML equivalent of [[{{subst:PAGENAME}}#cite_note-1|<sup>[1]</sup>]] at the place where the ref belongs.

If you copy the page (the HTML/what the reader sees), you get that link – which I suppose is technologically "reasonable", but it's definitely not what you want when you're copying content between pages.

When I look at https://sa.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=%E0%A4%B6%E0%A4%A4%E0%A4%AA%E0%A4%A5%E0%A4%AC%E0%A5%8D%E0%A4%B0%E0%A4%BE%E0%A4%B9%E0%A5%8D%E0%A4%AE%E0%A4%A3%E0%A4%AE%E0%A5%8D&action=edit&oldid=424972 , it seems to me that the problem is that the wikilinks do not point to the main namespace, but to the user's sandbox as if the article was a subpage of it. Hence why I'm lost as to why you mention refs.
