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. 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).

Citation Tool Does Not Recognise References Added in Infoboxes

As an example, I was working on Gabrielle Onguéné. The link to her 2015 World Cup Profile was already in the article but in the infobox. When I used the citation tool, it did not recognise the reference as already existing. I've added it in in this (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Gabrielle_Ongu%C3%A9n%C3%A9&oldid=814758669) edit but will go back to fix. Just thought I should give you a heads up.

Using Chrome 62.0.3202.94 on Windows with Vector.

Je vois que vous utilisés le editeur source, mais vous avez posté sur le forum pour VisualEditor. Si vous voulez inclure une image vous pouvez aller sur VisualEditor, "Inserer" -> "Media".

On Dutch Wikipedia I tried to add the template nl:Sjabloon:Zie artikel (See article) to nl:Grenadines. This template works well only when placed in the top line of the text. In pages with infoboxes the Zie artikel template is placed below the infobox, leaving an unsightly white gap as high as the infobox. I can't find a way to get the template in the top line. Invoking the template interactively or by typing {{ makes no difference.

Btw: Windows 10, Pale Moon browser (a Firefox clone).

Yes, of course switching to the old editor does the trick. But this should not be necessary.

It is nice, that you are all working hard to make the editing easier. I appreciate that.

But I'd really really like to see a button at the top, that allows me to see a preview without taking a long round trip. I don't understand how that happened, that this button isn't there with that new edit view. Or really, how did that happen? Seriously? "Show changes" + "show preview" are the only two buttons that most of the users actually need. Comment here is simple: "If you need a button to add a link, then please use a Visual Editor."

P.S. That text on top of the feedback system, that should show where this comment will be published (VisualEditor/Feedback) doesn't actually link to the right place.

There have been a lot of complains about the preview button being hard to find / awkward to access in the 2017 wikitext editor. A phabricator task has been open on the issue for a year. There doesn't seem to be much work on beta-editor recently. There is an EnWiki consensus against the beta editor due to bad performance issues and faulty previews.

Note: There's a separate page for 2017 wikitext editor/Feedback.

I accidentally moved a page from my account to someone else's. Now I can't publish it.
