Edit description

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).

I noticed a couple thing missing, like being to horizontally align/justify text, borders/padding/size for tables, etc. Are there any plans for adding ways to edit these visually? I tried looking around for any discussion, including in Phabricator, but this was all I found. Is that the only point it's been considered?

Thanks!

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm pretty sure there should be some ticket about advanced options in tables, but can't find it - maybe you'd like to recap the main missing ones adding a few examples of use cases? TY.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Text alignment inside tables is phab:T103276. I think that the central task is phab:T54180. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/visualeditor-tables/ has a list of table-specific feature requests and bug reports.

Creating page with a redirect

Summary by Elitre (WMF)

Works in VE.

GoEThe (talkcontribs)

Can't find an option to create a page with a redirect. Had to write the code manually in the new wikieditor. Is it hidden somewhere?

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Not really? :)

GoEThe (talkcontribs)

The page configuration button is greyed out and not functional when I create a new page.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Not for me. Where is this happening, can you tell me which page you're trying to create?

GoEThe (talkcontribs)

I see now that it is enabled on the normal Visual Editor, but not on the Wikitext editor.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T165162 for that then.

Real Bad bug wth hotcat gadget script

Ranjithsiji (talkcontribs)

In Wikipedia a real bad bug is there with visual editor and hotcat gadget script. If Source Editor of Visual editor is enabled insted of conventional editor or wiked. The hotcat script will edit the first version of the article to add a category and it will discard all the later changes run on the article.

To reproduce the bug. Just enable visual editor source editor and hotcat gadget in any wikipedia. then go to an article and add a category with hotcat. Then we get an error message that the version of the article is old.

Plz check with it.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Works for me: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Whatamidoing_(WMF)/sandbox&diff=786350625&oldid=778920250

(I haven't tested adding several categories.)

In wikibooks there is a tab with a danger icon in which a warning appears in a format difficult to read because it is very long and narrow

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Please provide direct links where we can see what you are referring to. Thanks.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

It's probably a template similar to enwiki's Template:TFA-editnotice, which was designed for desktop computers, and which is therefore nearly unreadable on any narrow window.

There is one user who has started adding infoboxes to lots of articles using VE. it is great, but the issue is that infobox code is in one big pile and not easy readable for users of wikicode.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

You just need to fix the Ēkas infokaste template to determine how you want it to look like (of course, this can and should be done on any other template that's posing the same problem). explanation, example. Hope this helps.

Papuass (talkcontribs)

OK, thanks, will try to fix it.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

When I say "fix the template", I mean the TemplateData for it, not the single instance of the template on the page. :)
