Move pages to Wikivoyage[edit]

Please see Talk:Wikivoyage#Move_Travel_Guide_pages_to_Wikivoyage. – Now that the new travel guide will be called Wikivoyage we could move this page and all subpages to Wikivoyage and the latter page to Wikivoyage e.V. which is the complete name of the association. Agreed? – Thx!--Aschmidt (talk) 20:13, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Agreed, that would make sense. sumone10154(talk) 04:49, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
I agree -- Raoli  10:49, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
Done (Move done on November 11, 2012 by Nemo). --Rogerhc (talk) 21:24, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Koafv![edit]

Hello Koafv, thank you for changing the section title from "where are the pillows" to "how to find help". I never understood that but didn't dare to ask. An insider joke from a certain group of specialists? Anyway, a good lesson on writing styles... Ziko (talk) 10:16, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

  • I thought since this is the lounge, there should be pillows somewhere (note that the idea is not mine). But I agree it is more conventional now.--Ymblanter (talk) 10:18, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

Sign here[edit]

Intro section contains a "sign here" request as follows:

We are in beta—to be emailed when images are in place and we are ready for publicizing, sign here

Is that "sign here" out of date? Is the email going to be sent when we officially launch on January 15, 2013? Who is in charge of this? --Rogerhc (talk) 02:20, 2 January 2013 (UTC)

I am not sure who is in charge of this. The launch may not be one clean crisp time as we are all volunteers and in different times zones. But I am hoping Jan 15th,2013. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:41, 3 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done The email was sent and the notice removed from the page in January. --Rogerhc (talk) 05:13, 16 February 2013 (UTC)

Wikivoyage/Gallery[edit]

Imagine a photo gallery displaying great travel photos down the right side of Wikivoyage page. Wouldn't that look great and be interesting to see? Voyagers could rotate photos through this gallery as they please. The idea: to showcase great voyage photos from the various language versions of Wikivoyage, maybe one photo from each language version. Destination of the Month and Off the Beaten Path photos could be likely candidates. It could be a community maintained gallery, to update as you like. Well, it's an idea. We could put the gallery in say Wikivoyage/Gallery and it could be transcluded into the Wikivoyage page and the various translations of Wikivoyage page. But that's for another day as I have to run now, unless you wish to do it now yourself. In that case, please do! :-) Rogerhc (talk) 05:16, 15 February 2013 (UTC)

Do you want to put an example together for us to look at? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:06, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
Sure, when I have some time to play with it I'll do that. --Rogerhc (talk) 05:18, 16 February 2013 (UTC)
Made a basic gallery today. It is fussy working within the confines of the Mediawiki engine that was designed for encyclopedia entries, not for displaying gallery images. Maybe a Gallery extension is in order. But I'm not sure I could find my way through the coding of that and still end up anywhere I wanted to be. So we have a somewhat kludgey gallery that doesn't scale well. Still, I'm proud of the wizardry I employed in getting the gallery to show large pictures when you enter it's own page while showing modest float right size pictures when it is transcluded into the Meta Wikivoyage page. --Rogerhc (talk) 17 February 2013
The gallery tag was moved into core as mw:Help:Images#Rendering a gallery of images, not sure if it's what you are looking for? K7L (talk) 18:21, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
I like the way this looks: this idea is worth maintaining. A. Mahoney (talk) 13:23, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
I have not played with the <gallery> tag. I should play with it to learn what it offers. Also of interest are mw:Extension:User Image Gallery, mw:Extension:SmoothGallery and mw:Extension:Image Gallery. However, I think I will stick with what I've got for the moment. It would be nice to have the images resize themselves automatically to a given percentage width of the available space, if it could be done simply and elegantly. I don't know how. Thx for your feedback! :-) Rogerhc (talk) 23:59, 19 February 2013 (UTC)
I wuv it. LtPowers (talk) 17:15, 21 February 2013 (UTC)

Isn't this page outdated?[edit]

It will be nice if someone rewrites it, I think -- Ата (talk) 20:31, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Translation misalignment[edit]

It seems that the translaed pages (e.g. Wikivoyage/it, Wikivoyage/fr, etc...) do not reflect the current Wikivoyage layout. Furthermore there's a funny bug "Italian" is converted into "Hebrew". Can someone correct the situation? Thanks, --Andyrom75 (talk) 16:41, 12 October 2013 (UTC)

And many translated versions still use old logo??? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 01:57, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
