Post your feedback about using the visual editor. Please report bugs involving Parsoid at Talk:Parsoid instead.

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.

Use this page to tell the Wikimedia developers your ideas and issues about using the visual editor. The Editing 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.

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).

Why can't the page title be selected or edited in Visual editor?

Amire80 (talkcontribs)

While editing a page in Visual editor, the page's title is grayed out and cannot be selected or edited.

Editing the title may sound extreme, but I actually saw real users trying to click the title in order to rename a page (or, as we say, move it). Having such an option, maybe with some kind of a confirmation dialog, actually makes sense to me.

But what I could really never understand is why isn't it possible not being able to select it, for example for copying to clipboard. I often find myself wanting to do it, and I cannot. I could just create a Phab task for it, but I'm asking here, because it has been so since the start, and there was probably a reason for this, but I'd like to try to understand it discuss before creating a task.

Why can't the footnotes be edited where they are and must be edited by clicking their number?

When I watch new users editing with VE, I very often see them trying to edit footnotes (a.k.a. "references" or "citations") where they are. Of course, this is impossible because they can be only be edited by clicking the reference number, but is there really a good reason for it?

It actually makes a lot of sense to make them clickable and editable right where they are:

  • In general, they are just content like any other, so it should be possible to click them and edit them.
  • While editing wiki syntax, their text can be clicked and edited where it is seen on the screen.
  • While reading an article, you can click the little arrow near a reference, and the article will scroll to where its number appears in the text, so it is easy to go from a footnote's number to its location in the text. But this link doesn't work while editing in Visual editor: Clicking a footnote just selects the whole corresponding references section.

This one should be in Phab though, it's like one the first tasks ever filed for VE I think :)

Amire80 (talkcontribs)

It doesn't surprise me, but go find something in Phab :/

... Also, if it's a FAQ, it's not listed as such :)

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Isn't this https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T54750 ? (also, I didn't say it's a FAQ, although we do get that request from time to time.)

Além do nome atual da Nova Basílica "Santuário Nacional de Nossa Senhora da Conceição Aparecida Rainha e Padroeira do Brasil" Agora como Catedral da Arquidiocese de Aparecida SP, que é a Arquidiocese e Cidade da Mãe de Jesus no Brasil, o nome fica o seguinte: "Sé Catedral Basílica Nossa Senhora da Conceição Aparecida"

I think more comfortable would be sub-toolbars instead of menus. Or option to expand on toolbar most popular buttons (as classical editors have).

@Elsa Santos, is your question about "following" edits to an article, that is, putting it in your watchlist? If so, you just need to click on the star at the top of it, and future changes can be seen via your watchlist link at the top of the page.
