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).

Automatic change of [[:Media: into [

Summary by Whatamidoing (WMF)
Daehan (talkcontribs)


It seems that when a change is made using the VisualEditor, the code [[:Media: is automatically changed into [ See this example.

This changes transforms an internal media into an external link, which displays the little symbol of an arrow going out of a box.

  1. Is it indeed caused by VisualEditor?
  2. Can it be corrected?

Thank you

Hello Whatamidoing,

It looks like it, but it's different: in the example you provided, [[Media: is transformed into [[Image: ; but in my case, [[Media is transformed into an external link : [

Thank you

The initial bug report is on a third-party wiki. // is the Wikipedia version of that person's Image/ file name (because our images are usually on Commons, and theirs aren't).

I think we still don't understand each other :)

The problem is not that it is File: or Image:, the problem is that instead of having File: or Image:, we have an url : //

Check the example.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

We have the URL because the software didn't understand that "Media:" is the exactly same thing as "File:".

Can reproduce, in the console this error is shown:

TypeError: mw.Title.newFromText(...) is null[Weitere Informationen] load.php:2333:507

Maybe one can open a Phabricator ticket for this?

Where do I find the references ?

Rugk (talkcontribs)

You add them manually with the "Cite" button at the top. If you want to edit them, you just click on one in the article text.

Apart from that, they are shown at the bottom of the article, as usual, but you cannot edit them there, i.e. it is an "read-only" part there.

It would be great if the editor could detect, when I am about to add a duplicate citation.

I just tested it this way and it showed me no warning:

  1. Add an URL via automatic tool (tab) there.
  2. Go somewhere else and add another URL, paste exactly the same URL as before.
  3. And it created exactly the same text and did not notify me, one was there already.

I think checking whether one is about to re-add exactly the same URL would be an easy check, you can add.

We used to be able to click on a reference (bringing up the pop-up with the edit button), copy, and then paste within the article or even between articles if you had both pages open in VisualEditor. This was very useful since it allowed editors to quickly reuse the the same source without using the "reuse" tab, which often got unwieldy and slowed down performance on long pages. Recently, doing this instead just produces [x] in plaintext upon pasting. Is there any way to get the old functionality back?

I will use VE in my Wiki to create and edit articles offline, but VE dont run without internet connection. That i need install or configure them to run?

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure that this is possible. (It was planned, but I think it is for the future, not for now.)

Shadowslight (talkcontribs)

Sry, my english is crap. ;-)

I tell it in German.

Ich habe Local (XAMPP) eine Wiki eingerichtet als projekt Vorbereitung, die auf einen Server kommen soll. Der VE gibt eine Fehlermeldung aus das er den Server nicht erreichen kann und startet den wikieditor.

Und diese Locale Version soll für Artikel bearbeitung oder erstellung dienen die auf andere Wiki dann übertragen wird.

Ergo soll meine Locale Version so laufen wie eine am Netz.

Shadowslight (talkcontribs)

Die Fehlermeldung lautet.

Fehler beim Laden der Daten vom Server: no_vrs: The VirtualRESTService for the document server is not defined; see Soll der Vorgang erneut durchgeführt werden?

Danach startet der WikiEditor wenn ich kein Internet Zugriff habe...!

Ich danke Dir für diese Links, ich hoffe ich blicke da durch. ;-)

Your unsaved changes have been automatically recovered

The RedBurn (talkcontribs)

Such a great feature, thanks!

I always disable the "Warn me when I leave an edit page with unsaved changes" option, but there was a risk with the VisualEditor and there is no way to enable that message only for the VisualEditor.

It's really great that you fixed that (seems to come from phab:T57370).

I also noticed , which I'm hoping won't happen too often.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm glad that you like the autosave feature. It's saved me some trouble several times already.

Je ne suis pas certain de comprendre la question.
