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).

Is there information available if/how VE is/can be tested in an automated way, e.g. using Cucumber?

I know that there has been Cucumber tests in the past. This seems to be not the case anymore in master. Is the page Browser testing/Running tests#Running VisualEditor browser tests via Vagrant still up-to-date?

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@ZFilipin (WMF), do you know? :)

ZFilipin (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Somehow I have missed this page when marking Selenium+Ruby pages as obsolete. (Done now.) TLDR: we are no longer using Ruby+Selenium+Cucumber, we are using Node.js+Selenium+Mocha. For more information see T139740 and Selenium tests in Node.js.

For information on Node.js Selenium framework please see Selenium/Node.js.

Let me know if you need help or if you have any questions.

Un bug se produit lors de la modification lors de la modification de la rubrique "Œuvres" provoquant le blocage total de la page ne permettant plus de faire certaines modifications ni même de publier les modifications (curieusement le copier coller interne marche mais plus l'externe).

Nous vous précisons par ailleurs que ce bug a été constate depuis un ordinateur Apple avec le navigateur Safari que depuis un ordinateur tournant sous Windows avec le navigateur Firefox.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I wonder if this is still happening? Maybe more specific steps to reproduce could help, see How_to_report_a_bug/fr.

I can't get rid of templates by visualeditor, i always need to do it the traditional way by erasing html. Im using finnish wikipedia, chrome is my browser

TheDJ (talkcontribs)

Please give a specific example. An article, and the name of the template you are trying to remove.

@Mr.MR9 20, what is the issue you are experiencing?

Visual Editor not respecting Image Sizes

ComputerSaysMaybe (talkcontribs)

Every time I use the VisualEditor it doesn't respect the custom image size set, it will display the images in full size. This makes it almost useless as most image original sizes are over 2000px.

This is a wiki which has been upgraded from quite an old version (1.23 now on 1.27), though everything else is working as expected. I've tried uploading completely new images and even different image types, still the same. If you save it doesn't save the image in it's original size, just displays it when using the editor.

Any suggestions? Happy to provide any requested info.


Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

What are the other "Advanced Settings" for one of those images?

ComputerSaysMaybe (talkcontribs)

In Advanced Settings I have the following;

- Postition

-- Wrap text around this item

-- Left, Center, Right

- Image Type

-- Thumbnail, Frameless, Frame, Basic

-- Border

- Image Size

-- Default, Custom

--- 300 x 344 px

-- Make full size

All the bold text is what is currently selected.

As well after changing that Custom Image size and saving, if you reopen it, it will report the full image size of 2000 x 2296 px.

Hope that's of use.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I really appreciate your detailed list here. This seems to work for me (see this test). Could you check again and see if it's working for you now? The software has been updated once since we started talking.

"Your edit was *saved*." ?

Summary by Elitre (WMF)
Kaartic (talkcontribs)

I thought the word "saved" was replaced with "published" recently. I see most of the messages reflecting the change except the success message of VE. It still shows "Your edit was saved." and not "Your edit was published." I think it's been missed?

Kaartic (talkcontribs)

Maybe I'm wrong in considering this an issue with the VisualEditor. Anyways, I'm not sure where the issue lies so leaving it here until this gets to the right place.

You may want to leave this comment on the "talk" or "discussion" page attached to the article. Go toŒuvres_d%27Alphonse_Daudet and click on "Ajouter un sujet". (talkcontribs)

After multiple attempts, then an all day effort. I just cant get it installed onto Mediawiki on a private computer. Its just too damm complex integrating so many different parts. How about an all in one extension?

Переехала кнопка "Повторное использование"

Igel B TyMaHe (talkcontribs)

В диалоге "Источник" некоторое время назад (несколько месяцев) переехала с первой строки на вторую кнопка "Повторное использование". Видимо, изменилась ширина окна диалога или кнопок (шрифта).

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi there. Thanks for providing the screenshot. I am pretty sure there must be a task on Phabricator detailing the issue where this could be added.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Igel B TyMaHe, can you tell me whether it is possible to reword that label so that it's shorter? TYVM.

Igel B TyMaHe (talkcontribs)

«Повторная сноска» (repeated footnote)

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm wildly guessing that if it's not a single word it will still take much space...

Igel B TyMaHe (talkcontribs)

Even a few pixels are matter, I think. It fitted well some month ago. There is an adverb «Повторно» (= again), but it simply uneven.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

But the wording has never been changed. However, that message can be changed on translatewiki to see whether it fixes the current situation. If you don't know how to do it I'll explain how when I can.

This post was hidden by Elitre (WMF) (history)
Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Igel B TyMaHe, I went ahead with . It seems to have worked. If so, the corresponding message should go to translatewiki and the local one should be deleted. HTH

Igel B TyMaHe (talkcontribs)

I can cofirm that it looks good now.
