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. 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).

J'ai un problème avec cette phrase Le poids est la force de la pesanteur, d'origine gravitationnelle et inertielle, exercée par la Terre sur un corps massique en raison uniquement du voisinage de la Terre .

On pourrait penser en la lisant qu'il n'y a de poids que sur la Terre . Qu'en pensez-vous ?

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@PereMakulture, that's a question for the talk page of that article. This forum is about technical issues. Merci!

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Non vedo problemi particolari con la pagina it:Sulmona: è stata protetta in passato, ma al momento non lo è. Se usi l'altro editor (https://it.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Sulmona&veaction=editsource) cambia qualcosa?

No me permite publicar los cambios.

He ampliado la información de esta página pero no me permite publicarla.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Sabina Fluturas, hi, I see your edits here. Was there more? If so, please see Como informar de un error.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

When you tried to publish your changes, did it look like nothing happened (i.e., you clicked the blue button, but the box stayed there)?

Sabina Fluturas (talkcontribs)

I saved the information I was about to publish and entered the page a second time. Everything was gone, nothing saved, but then I wrote everything again and it worked. Now there are no problems, I believe.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

It sounds like a cache problem. Do report if it happens again. TY!

In preview, category names are always blue links, even when not existing.

Ysogo (talkcontribs)

I have just realized that inserting a mistyped category name can not be trapped by the preview function because in preview categories name are always blue. (note:should it matter, I'm editing on it.wiki)

can you please fix it?

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

In the visual editor, adding categories via the related tool will immediately show you whether it exists or not: its title will show in red if the related page doesn't exist, and in black if it does.

Ysogo (talkcontribs)

Ciao Elitre, I believe we are not talking about the same VE. I'm talking about the new VE which has recently replaced the editor for text mode. With such editor, the categories, in the preview mode, are shown in blue regardless they exist or not.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

(That's the 2017 wikitext editor, and it has its own feedback page! ;) No problems, I'll reply later bearing in mind that you're talking about that.)

Ysogo (talkcontribs)

Ooops... I apologize.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

You're kidding, right? no need to, by all means.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Figueiredo Neto, you saved an edit made with the visual editor, so you clearly found that button :) If your question isn't covered by https://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajuda:Guia_de_edi%C3%A7%C3%A3o/Como_come%C3%A7ar_uma_p%C3%A1gina , and you are having a technical issue, let us know.

Perk1329 (talkcontribs)

unable to figure out how to link a superscript to a reference. no response necessary. I'm just hoping the guide can be revised to clarify this.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hey @Perk1329, I'd like to understand better what you're referring to, maybe an example would help. (I tried this edit, but I'm almost certain you mean something else!)

Alsee (talkcontribs)

@Elitre (WMF) looking at their contributions, I see they were asking how to make their first regular reference. I haven't looked at the VE guide lately, so I'm not sure what (if anything) should be improved there.

@Perk1329 if you look at this edit you can see how I made a basic reference. It works just like <sup>text</sup>, but you fill in the reference information. The numbering is automatic. Like this:

<ref>Enter a web address or text description or anything you want here.</ref>

And here is what it produces:[1]

  1. Enter a web address or text description or anything you want here.

You can see how I made a much nicer reference in this edit. In the wikitext editor I clicked CITE, then TEMPLATES then CITE_WEB. Clicking the icons for magnifying glass and calendar will (usually) automatically fill in all the info you need. It is similar in Visual Editor.

Ymblanter (talkcontribs)

Попробуйте загрузить напрямую на Викисклад, так, к сожалению, очень сложно определить, в чём проблема.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Ymblanter, could you look at this? I assume that, as a newer account, the user needs to upload the file directly to Commons, to get around one of their edit filters.

Ymblanter (talkcontribs)

It is indeed difficult to say what exactly they want to upload, but I think they must try to upload directly to Commons.

If you have questions about why you were blocked, then you should probably talk to @EVinente.

EVinente (talkcontribs)

Thank you @Whatamidoing (WMF). This account has been block indefinitely because was vandalyzing some articles inserting non-sense texts. Probably wp0 abuse.
