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).

Here's a screenshot about what's happening everytime I try to create or edit a page. The blue bar appears, load until ~70% then freeze.

I tried to check what's happening with firefox & chrome dev tools. Everything seems fine, here's a sample of a request json response.

{"visualeditor":{"result":"success","notices":["<p>You have followed a link to a page that does not exist yet.\nTo create the page, start typing in the box below (see the <a class=\"external text\" href=\"https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Help:Contents\">help page</a> for more info).\nIf you are here by mistake, click your browser's <strong>back</strong> button.\n</p>"],"checkboxes":{"watch":"<input name=\"wpWatchthis\" type=\"checkbox\" value=\"1\" tabindex=\"1\" accesskey=\"w\" id=\"wpWatchthis\" />&#160;<label for='wpWatchthis' id='mw-editpage-watch' title=\"Add this page to your watchlist [w]\">Watch this page</label>"},"links":{"missing":["Cpage"],"extant":[]},"protectedClasses":"","basetimestamp":"20150813153540","starttimestamp":"20150813153541","oldid":0,"content":""}}

It's like he doesn't try to load the next page, the form for page edition / creation.

It's a private wiki. MediaWiki's 1.25.2. I got VisualEditor-REL1_25-c947b49.tar.gz and UniversalLanguageSelector-REL1_25-7661826.tar.gz. Here is my conf

### UniversalLanguageSelector (prérequis Parsoid)     # wfLoadExtension( 'UniversalLanguageSelector' );     require_once "$IP/extensions/UniversalLanguageSelector/UniversalLanguageSelector.php";     $wgULSGeoService = false;     $wgULSEnable = false;     $wgULSIMEEnabled = false;


    ### VisualEditor     wfLoadExtension( 'VisualEditor' );     # require_once "$IP/extensions/VisualEditor/VisualEditor.php";

    $wgVisualEditorSupportedSkins = array( 'Vector', 'Apex', 'Monobook', 'Minerva' );

    # Enable by default for everybody     $wgDefaultUserOptions['visualeditor-enable'] = 1;

    # Don't allow users to disable it     # $wgHiddenPrefs[] = 'visualeditor-enable';

    # OPTIONAL: Enable VisualEditor's experimental code features     #$wgDefaultUserOptions['visualeditor-enable-experimental'] = 1;

    # URL to the Parsoid instance     # MUST NOT end in a slash due to Parsoid bug     $wgVisualEditorParsoidURL = 'http://localhost:8000';     $wgVisualEditorParsoidHTTPProxy = false;

    # Interwiki prefix to pass to the Parsoid instance     # Parsoid will be called as $url/$prefix/$pagename     $wgVisualEditorParsoidPrefix = 'wikidiff';

    # # Namespaces for VE     #$wgVisualEditorNamespaces = array_merge($wgContentNamespaces, array( NS_USER ));     $wgVisualEditorNamespaces = $wgContentNamespaces;

    # Timeout for HTTP requests to Parsoid in seconds, and for serializationcachetimeout     $wgVisualEditorParsoidTimeout = 200;     $wgVisualEditorSerializationCacheTimeout = 3600;

    # Réglage parsoid pour wiki privé     # https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:VisualEditor#Linking_with_Parsoid_in_private_wikis     $wgSessionsInObjectCache = true;     $wgVisualEditorParsoidForwardCookies = true;

Anyone can tell me what the hell is wrong ? It's been two long days...

Did you resolve that issue somehow? When I turn on $wgResourceLoaderDebug VisualEditor loads. But without debug mode it freezes at 70%.

Jeroen N (talkcontribs)

This is happening to me more and more, to the point I've had to disable the visual editor altogether. The same goes for the 2017 wikitext editor.

In earlier version(s) of the Visual Editor one could edit blockquotes. In later version(s) one can only edit them when they have just been inserted in the current edit session, but after saving the page and reopening it in the Visual Editor blockquotes are protected and cannot only be edited in Wikitext mode. I consider this a considerable regression.

Can you provide a link to a specific page where you experience this, and not which browser you are using ?

Вопрос: разве релевантны или полезны пользователю ссылки в "Примечание" на сторонние сайты, которые просто "...использует интернет эквайринг Московского Кредитного Банка через PayKeeper..."? По-моему это просто способ получения обратной ссылки...

VE is adding incorrect wikitext <br /> for breaks versus simpler <br>

Timeshifter (talkcontribs)

I noticed this when I clicked the enter key in Visual Editor to separate some stuff I was working on in my sandbox. This is a bad idea.

People have come to help pages such as en:Help:Sorting on English Wikipedia and tried to replace all <br> tags with <br />. We had to revert all their work and explain to them that we are trying to make things simpler for editors, not more difficult.

By the way, why is this editing window making editing more difficult by not having a button for nowiki tags as in Wikipedia? Developers should be trying to make things easier. Now I have to go to an editing window on Wikipedia to find the correct nowiki wikitext, copy it, and then come back here. I often wonder where to put the slash. I don't have this stuff memorized.

And this crap editor keeps messing up the nowiki tags I try to enter.

How can I add a line break from VE? I tried shift-enter and all other key combinations, but it always starts a new paragraph. I also didn't find it in the toolbar.

Timeshifter (talkcontribs)

I tried to retrace my steps, and the only thing remaining that produces this for me is when pasting in a table into the visual editor in a certain way. I did it earlier today, but I can't duplicate that way now! So I think this remaining problem can safely be ignored since it is now so obscure.

The other day I was working on editing a table, and I think at the same time I was editing en:Help:Table and writing tips in the Visual Editor section at the end. So I was paying close attention to any screw ups on my part or the part of the Visual Editor. I vaguely remember that the problem was happening more often then. So maybe it has been fixed since I started this thread 11 days ago.

Feature: Recovery of edits after a crash

Jamespharvey20 (talkcontribs)

I've been having system problems lately, and crashing a lot. Before using VisualEditor, Chromium and Firefox saved my edits when restoring sessions, as long as I am using a persistent login. When using VisualEditor, they are unable to do this. Some type of recovery of in-process edits would be a really nice feature. I think at least for the time being, the lack of this feature is going to prevent me from using it anymore, maybe forever.
