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).

Great job guys, I just need a little help making it work on my install!

I'm getting a similar error to the one described here, but on my own installation of editor. http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.org.wikimedia.mediawiki.bugs/339542

It DID work previously with wmf4 and a snapshot of the editor at the beginning of June. Somehow upgrading it broke.

I've checked out the latest editor and the master version of MW as of June 9. I installed it again in a separate /wiki2 directory and got the same error:

 Error loading data from server: parsoidserver-http-bad-status: 404. Would you like to retry?

However, when I create a new page, the editor loads! But does not let me save the page. Error: Error contacting the Parsoid server in the review popup.

Is there anything wrong with the way I'm linking to parsoid?

 $wgVisualEditorParsoidURL = 'http://www.sitename.com:8000/';
 $wgVisualEditorParsoidPrefix = 'sitename.com';

The wiki is in /wiki directory. Thanks!

First, you should use the $wgVirtualRestConfig array instead of $wgVisualEditorParsoidURL & $wgVisualEditorParsoidPrefix.

Second, I came across issues like this, I couldn't find the issue in my apache error logs as I was trying to find out where it was looking and if there was some webserver translation going on. I ended up using wireshark to capture a trace of when I attempt to use VisualEditor, after some trial and error I was able to modify the Parsoid URL to what it required.

Other things to think about:

  • Can you read wiki pages from your parsoid instance? e.g. http://www.sitename.com:8000/<wiki_URL>/v3/page/html/<wiki_page>
  • Can you curl from your parsoid server?
  • Is your localsettings.js file on the parsoid server right?

I have the same problem, my configs:

LocalSettigs.php:

$wgDefaultUserOptions['visualeditor-enable'] = 1;
$wgHiddenPrefs[] = 'visualeditor-enable';
$wgVisualEditorParsoidURL = 'http://mywiki:8142';
$wgVisualEditorParsoidPrefix = 'wiki';


settings.js:

parsoidConfig.setMwApi('wiki', 'http://mywiki/api.php');
parsoidConfig.useSelser = true;


Please help!

Hi,

I'd like to suggest an ergonomic enhancement :

  1. Choose an article
  2. Edit it as source editing
  3. Make a change
  4. Switch to the visual editor. Note the design of the popup:
    1. Switch to visual editing?
    2. You are switching to visual editing. Do you want to continue?
    3. Cancel
    4. Switch
  5. Switch to the source editing. Note the design of the popup:
    1. Switch to source editing?
    2. You are switching to source editing. Do you want to continue?
    3. Cancel Switch

-> The button layout is different. I suggest to use the same display in both cases like here so as the contributors will adopt the visual editor easily.

Hi there. Are you using Firefox perhaps?

Ftiercel (talkcontribs)

Yes. Indeed, it doesn't behave the same way on Chromium.

Hi there! The people who are working on that seem to be available at Help_talk:VisualEditor/The_visual_editor_at_Wikisources_and_Wiktionaries. Would you mind asking your questions there? TY!

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)
