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).

During editing en:Dhul-Qarnayn, decided to duplicate the opened ?veaction=edit tab. Processor usage suddenly jumped up and the page I was editing through the VisualEditor froze and then crashed. Even after refreshing and hard-refreshing any Dhul-Qarnayn?veaction=edit page still keeps on crashing. VisualEditor works fine on other pages and for Dhul-Qarnayn too in incognito mode.

Spent a few hours on the research and editing of that article, any possibilities of recovery? Already checked browser cache, required data appears to be absent.

Chrome - 78.0.3904.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Windows 10 (1903)

Vector

Update: After this event, Chrome updated to v78.0.3904.97; relaunched browser, however the ?veaction=edit page still kept on crashing. After some time, the page finally got loaded with most (but not all) of the edits recovered.

Hi!

I tried to find where I could fix a translation error myself on translatewiki, but I cannot find it, so maybe you can help me?

In the nl: version of VE "citation" is translated as "citeren". This however means "quoting" and very confusing to the Dutch. A better translation would be "referentie". (as in "reference")

@Ciell there is a little trick. you can add "&uselang=qqx" to the url of a webpage (or ?uselang=qqx depends a bit on the url) and this special languagecode will show you the names of all the messages used in the interface:


https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aomi?veaction=editsource&uselang=qqx


So in this case you are looking for the MediaWiki message: MediaWiki:Citoid-citoidtool-title

Very interesting @TheDJ!

But that doesn't show the VE-buttons to me? It does show all the different tabs on a page.

Yes, I did correct that one.

But my question is a general one: the "=qqx"-trick is interesting, in cases where you don't know the name of the right Mediawiki: page. But it doesn't show me the buttons?

Hi, im trying do install visual editir on my local wiki, but i get the error "Erro ao carregar dados do servidor: apierror-visualeditor-docserver-http-error: (curl error: 6) Couldn't resolve host name"


Local settings php:

$wgVirtualRestConfig['modules']['parsoid']['url'] = array(

    // URL to the Parsoid instance

    // Use port 8142 if you use the Debian package

    'url' => 'http://localhost:8000',

    // Parsoid "domain", see below (optional)

    'domain' => 'localhost',

    // Parsoid "prefix", see below (optional)

    'prefix' => 'localhost'

);


config.yaml


services:

  - module: lib/index.js

    entrypoint: apiServiceWorker

    conf:

        mwApis:

          # This is the only required parameter,

          # the URL of you MediaWiki API endpoint.

        - uri: 'http://localhost/wikijdb/api.php'

         

          # The "domain" is used for communication with Visual Editor

          # and RESTBase.  It defaults to the hostname portion of

          # the `uri` property above, but you can manually set it

          # to an arbitrary string.

          domain: 'wiki/wikijdb'  # optional   

       

         

Someone knows how to solve this problem? its so bad to edit on source code

Equations displayed in <math> code

5.254.46.18 (talkcontribs)

Hi, I installed VisualEditor in MediaWiki 1.33 on my server. I've also enabled the Math extension. In the viewing mode, the math equations are rendered correctly (as svg). But when I edit a page using VisualEditor, they are displayed in <math> code. This is also the case in the equation editor. When I click on any <math> code of a page, the equation editor doesn't show as expected; the code is treated as normal text. This is different from what I saw on Wikipedia, where equation is always rendered.


How can I configure VisualEditor so that it works with Math? Thanks.

Any ideas why VisualEditor throws this exception to Chrome console with 1.33 and later when copy pasting image to editor,
