About this board

Post your feedback about using the visual editor.

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).

Color of marking of search results

Summary by Elitre (WMF)

At we'll learn whether changing it is feasible. TY! and welcome to Phab :)

Ziko (talkcontribs)

Hello, I use the search function of the Visual Editor sometimes to find out when a word/lemma appears in my text for the first time. The reason is that I want to link only the lemma at first mention.

The search results are marked in the text with a certain color, a kind of green. With that green it is difficult to recognize whether the marked text is linked (a kind of blue) or not.

Could the marking have a different color?

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Ziko, are you on Phab? Maybe you want to weigh in the conversation there?

Ziko (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the invitation - I'm not, and honestly I find Phab still somewhat confusing. But I'll have a look.

VisualEditor changing Section names while using extension Discussionthreading

1 (talkcontribs)

I'm using both the VisualEditor and the DiscussionThreading extension. Discussion Threading shows the section links "New" "Edit" "Reply" to manage discussion threads. After refreshing a Talk page these links are shown for a second or so. After that they are replaced by "Edit source" "Edit source" "Reply". It looks like VisualEditor adapts the page and changes the section link names (the underlying links are not changed and do function). If I disable VisualEditor the section link names are not changed. I tried various combinations of tabMessages in LocalSettings.php but eventually I solved this in a quite rude manner by disabling the following line in: /var/lib/mediawiki/extensions/VisualEditor/modules/ve-mw/init/targets/

if ( tabMessages.editsectionsource !== null ) {

//Tom20160624 commented out:  $editSourceLink.text( mw.msg( tabMessages.editsectionsource ) );

}. Suggestions for a more elegant solutions would be appreciated.

Kind regards,

Allow formatting in TextInputWidget?

9 (talkcontribs)

Is it somehow possible to allow text formatting / adding links/tables to some kind of TextInputWidget in the MediaWiki VisualEditor? For example in the WhitespacePreservingTextInputWidget?

Or maybe there's some other class I could use for that?

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@ESanders (WMF) will probably know the answer to your question.

ESanders (WMF) (talkcontribs)

You'd need a TargetWidget, which is what we use in the image dialog. (talkcontribs)

@ESanders (WMF) thanks for the answer! I guess the version of VE I have is outdated as it doesn't contain the TargetWidget class, but I got it from the documentation site.

Is there any chance you could link me an example of the usage of this Widget (e.g. the image dialog you mentioned)? I sadly couldn't find one and trying to use it as the other Widgets I use doesn't work. (talkcontribs)

After some more trying-to-get-it-done I think I can narrow my problem down: I need to pass a new Document to the TargetWidget which has no content yet but can be modified. Maybe someone could tell me how to create such a Document (i.e. which parameters to pass to which of the Document - constructors)?

ESanders (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'd have a look at the Media or Reference dialog code as reference implementations of this.

ESanders (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Jskurat (talkcontribs)

Thank you, that looks promising. I'll dig into it.

when trying to insert > pages i get a 404 message chrome browser

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Based on the fact that you later managed to make that edit, and since I can't no longer reproduce (WFM), I believe this is an occasional problem which we are still trying to diagnose properly. Hence, thanks for reporting it.

Slowking4 (talkcontribs)

it does lose all work, so not graceful fail
