How do you make a wiki?[edit]

I don't know how to make a wiki that is powered by MediaWiki. I have looked all over the wiki. Can someone help me please? XxMeepsterxX (talk)

Nevermind. I did some more looking around the wiki XxMeepsterxX (talk)

Bonjour, Je voudrais inserer ces liens dynamiques dans une page wiki et voir les memes resultats comme sur les pages web HTML:

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><div class="tableauPlaceholder" style="width:1908px; height:897px;"><object class="tableauViz" width="1908" height="897" style="display:none;"><param name="host_url" value="" /><param name="site_root" value="" /><param name="name" value="TheHealthSysthemDW-Copy2/1_AntenatalCC1VperR" /><param name="tabs" value="no" /><param name="toolbar" value="yes" /></object></div>

Comment y proceder ?

S'il vous plait veuillez m'apporter un appui.


Hallo! I just "created" a new Wiki using MediaWiki latest version. My question is: is there a software (app) running under Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite that can allow me to create and/or edit wiki articles OFFline and then sync them to ONline version? Something like MarsEdit for blogs, just to be clear...

Several problems in es:WP[edit]

Hi. Apparently since last software change es:WP is suffiring lots of problems. The Toolbar y is missing, also a section in the side bar named "Enlaces externos" (External links) that drives to Village pump, Admins noticeboards, and the "Insertable wiki markup" than looks at the bottom of the page, ie. I will be nice if someone could check this. We had several complains here. Thanks. --Ganímedes (talk) 18:22, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Ganímedes: Hi, thanks for reporting! Which toolbar? Is there a screenshot available (and information about the skin used and the browser(s) used) somewhere? Might also be good to get some output from the browser's developer tools error console of somebody running into this problem. When editing a page on the "Insertable wiki markup" (like "Sintaxis wiki", "Tipografía" etc) section at the bottom correctly inserts the markup for me when clicking it. I'm using Firefox 34 here. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 18:35, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Please read the link. Several users, with very different browsers (Mozilla, Chrome, Zafari) have reports same problems. I do a screencapture and paste here. Give me a minute. --Ganímedes (talk) 20:50, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Check red rectangles with text

. Thanks. Not even signature is possible to add.--Ganímedes (talk) 21:12, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Something a forgot say is that it is impossible to go straight to an article. If you write name in the search box, it says "There is an article in this WP named...", but you must make clic there. It doesn't go to the article itself. --Ganímedes (talk) 21:21, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Well it works for me... What happens when you log out? --Krenair (talkcontribs) 21:33, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Well, that is not enough, since so many users has got same problems... With my IP I've got same problems. Also if I use Chrome or Mozilla. However, this happends only in es:, not Meta, not Commons. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 21:41, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Did you empty your caché before or after try in es:WP? --Ganímedes (talk) 21:43, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
I emptied my cache and visited again, I still get the toolbar. What do you get when you check the JS console? --Krenair (talkcontribs) 21:52, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
I read the link (with my limited understanding of Spanish in combination with Google Translate) but I cannot reproduce the problem. I went to as shown in the screenshot but in Firefox 34 and being logged in, the toolbar loads for me, and at the bottom I do see links. Please check your browser console output if there are any errors (more info per browser: Firefox ≥24, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Opera), because I'm curious if the affected users have some gadget enabled which interferes here. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 21:43, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

No clue what you mean witrh JS console or how can I know what is wrong. I really sorry, but my knowledge of programming is limitated to Wikitext-user. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 23:20, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Please see the links that I posted. Are the instructions in those links unclear? --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 23:21, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
I've seen them, but I'm affraid I don't understood them. Sorry. It's too over my edge. I'll see if I can find someone who understand what you mean or need. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 23:24, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Ganímedes: If you tell me which browser (and which browser version) you use, I can probably also provide steps here (at least for Firefox and Chrome I could, because I am used to those browsers). --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 23:26, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Chrome: Version 39.0.2171.95 m; Firefox: 34.0.5 --Ganímedes (talk) 23:46, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Ganímedes: Firefox: Go to a page on es.wp. In the main menu, click "Tools > Web Developer > Browser Console". (I'm not sure on which computer systems there is still a main menu though.) The Browser Console window opens. Click "Clear" so there is nothing shown in that window. Then go back to the main browser window and click "Edit" on the es.wp page. After the page has loaded, go to the Browser Console window. The "JS" (JavaScript) errors would be the interesting ones here - they are the ones with the orange color (at least in my Firefox). --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 00:35, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

But you understand is not only me but lot of users, with different browsers, right?--Ganímedes (talk) 00:04, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

We do understand that, but no one was able to yet reproduce your problem and find the cause (give us error messages or something like that). Because of that we sadly need more information to help you. - Hoo man (talk) 00:06, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

In my case, problem happens with the "vector" appearance. With the other appearances (as Monobook) have no problems. Occurs only in Spanish Wikipedia; in English Wikipedia is all good. --Mega-buses (talk) 00:13, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

We understand it happens with different skins and different browser but a browser error console log is required to find reasons. Please provide a browser error console log. Please see the links I provided above for more information. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 00:29, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Error: Unknown dependency: 22 load.php:167

This? --Ganímedes (talk) 00:58, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Ganímedes: Yessss! That looks good. And I forgot one thing, so I am sorry that I have to ask you to do this one more time: Could you perform the same steps again, but manually add "&debug=true" to the end of the address in the browser before you access the page and look at the output in the console window? For the example above, that would be: instead of . Thank you for your help! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 01:09, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
I followed the instructions that you have mentioned on this page, and the next has appeared to me:
translation: It has been blocked load of mixed active content
  • "Use of "addOnloadHook" is deprecated. Use jQuery instead."
  • "Use of "hookEvent" is deprecated. Use jQuery instead."
--Shadowxfox (talk) 03:16, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
I confirm what Shadowxfox says. Thanks. --Ganímedes (talk) 08:57, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
@Shadowxfox: you could try to update es:Usuario:Shadowxfox/vector.js to use mw.loader.load instead of document.write (see good practices), and also remove that parameter "&dontcountme=s", which is not useful. It would look like this:
However, that script doesn't look good, because importing it causes many errors in my console:
  • Uncaught ReferenceError: otroparametro is not defined
  • Uncaught ReferenceError: otroflotante is not defined
  • Uncaught ReferenceError: otrobuscador is not defined
  • Uncaught ReferenceError: msActivarModulo is not defined
  • Uncaught ReferenceError: topaz is not defined
  • Uncaught ReferenceError: otroenlace is not defined
  • Uncaught ReferenceError: wpFirma is not defined

When I import that script I do not see all of the above errors - only some of them (it is simpler to use 'importScript'), but I see a mixed content and 404 errors as well as a syntax error. However both toolbars still work for me. Ruslik (talk) 20:21, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
I have a suspicion this is somehow linked to This change was deployed on Dec 17, and problems were first reported at eswiki early on Dec 19. Significantly, this change switched ResourceLoader to use numeric IDs for module registry data, which looks suspicious in the light of "Error: Unknown dependency: 571" and similar mesages. This, that and the other (talk) 07:07, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Likely problems started on 17, yes, but we wait to see if they fix somehow. Many times are fixed quickly and you don´t even notice. It took me some time to realize there was a problem, and more than this problem was permanent. It's not like expandable Menu:Cite in the ToolBar -wich let us to put the right refs easily,- that comes and goes with no reason. Sometimes you click Edit and is there, sometimes is not. I asume JS problems were similar to Cite, that's why I said nothing till 19th. Thanks all. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 09:49, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Pinging the author/reviewers of the patch mentioned above by TTO: Roan Kattouw (WMF), Trevor Parscal (WMF). I've also commented on the Gerrit change. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 14:28, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Is there no chance to undo this changes at least provisionally? I know you're working on this and I really appreciate, but I don´t want -actually I can't- to spend till January without edit -because it's almost a feat edit in this conditions. Thanks a lot. --Ganímedes (talk) 16:42, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Comment. The error message that Shadowxfox sees ("Se ha bloqueado la carga del contenido ...") is caused by http prefix in w:es:Usuario:Shadowxfox/vector.js. It is not related to the toolbar problem. Ruslik (talk) 19:00, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
That's rare because I also get a "mixed active content" problem. --Ganímedes (talk) 19:28, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
It's the same for me, (Firefox 34.0.5, Chrome 39.0.2171.95). The tools disappear when I'm logged in and es.wikinews at least. The temporary solution of "&debug=true" functions to me, but is some weary to add in every edition :P Regards, --ProtoplasmaKid (WM-MX) (talk) 19:39, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Well, I really do not know where the error comes, I just followed the instructions given by you and I posted here. Anyway, all the tools were not working before, now work (almost for me). However I am interested to know what was the problem that affected so many people.--Shadowxfox (talk) 03:26, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

After clean the cache I've got no problem anymore. Thankssssss!!!! --Ganímedes (talk) 07:45, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

This appears to have been an issue with the server-side cache. I reported this issue on IRC yesterday, but had to leave the channel soon afterwards, so someone may have acted to clear the server-side cache. This, that and the other (talk) 08:40, 24 December 2014 (UTC)
For me today the toolbar came back and also the Visual Editor. Thanks a lot guys! --ProtoplasmaKid (WM-MX) (talk) 16:37, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
This problem should be finally fixed now according to phab:T85489 by this change. You might need to bypass your browser cache. Thanks to everybody who helped here! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 12:55, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

Does official Wikipedia iOS app support deep link?[edit]

I heard the official Wikipedia android app support deep link, so I wonder if the ios app support deep link too.

If yes, then our app can call Wikipedia ios app directly to help user re-engage Wikipedia app.

The preceding unsigned comment was added by Leonlianduo (talk • contribs) 23:40, 9 January 2015‎ (UTC)

The iOS app does not support deep links right now. I've filed a task in our bug management system to track this issue. Thanks! --Dan Garry, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 18:38, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Fault with PEG grants Endorse button[edit]

Hi All

Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this, please can you suggest somewhere better if it's not. I'm applying for a PEG grant from WMF and have realised that the Endorse button on the application doesn't work in mobile view, it doesn't bring up the form. It does however click which may lead people to think that they have endorsed it if they're not expecting a box to pop up. Here's my application as an example (I've added an ugly work around with instructions for now).


Mrjohncummings (talk) 18:27, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

The button's code is from a gadget and all gadgets are enabled by default on desktop only. It can be enabled by adding |targets=desktop,mobile to the gadget's RL entry at definitions. I could enable it but would like to know whether it would work as expected on mobiles. @Jeph paul, Jmorgan (WMF):. --Glaisher (talk) 04:04, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
