2 cents[edit]

I came to this page to figure out how to get a post started, and I can't really say the page helped me (or encouraged me much FTM). I believe had the info I was looking for and gave me more a sense of "yes, you too can help and this is how". --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 13:38, 4 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Missing links in diff blogpost about new skin[edit]

On the page there is section "Learn more about the project", but it's only a bunch of pictures with captions - the links are missing. Can't leave comments there, and this seemed like the best place to report this issue. I hope someone here knows people responsible for publishing to Diff blog. 18:32, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@OVasileva (WMF) fyi (in case the page was created by you; at least other blog posts about the desktop improvements are) --Johannnes89 (talk) 19:25, 18 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Obscure error message[edit]

Tracked in Phabricator:
Task T331536

"Publishing failed. Sorry, you are not allowed to edit the jetpack_post_was_ever_published custom field." This was while trying to add an entry to the calendar - hopefully the draft is still there. (A note that a direct link from the Calendar page to either the Calendar help page or something seems to be in order.) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 14:16, 31 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Oh no! This appears to be a bug with some folks' accounts. The issue causes problems when they try to publish events. I'm looking into why this is happening. We recently updated the calendar software and that did not seem to fix the issue. Even more frustrating is that other folks' events have been published without issue.
In this instance I manually duplicated your draft event and published it. Please let me know if there are any issues with it. Chris Koerner (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 22:00, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
On the second bit, yes, let me add a "Calendar Help" link to the calendar itself. Good idea. Chris Koerner (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 22:01, 1 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There is now a "Need help?" link at the bottom of every calendar page. :) Chris Koerner (Wikimedia Foundation) [he/him] (talk) 21:51, 6 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Add fist bump emoji here. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 10:55, 7 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I also had the same problem. Can I get help, @CKoerner (WMF):? I'm not sure if the draft is saved. The title is "Javanese Wikisource Competition" and I might have saved it twice (or none). I also submitted a bug in phabricator before I saw this message. Bennylin 14:44, 8 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It has been aswered in task T331536. Thanks! Bennylin 15:48, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Urdu missing[edit]

Hello, can the Urdu language be included please? ─ The Aafī (talk) 14:47, 4 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @TheAafi, Urdu should be a target language option when writing a blog post. Have a look at this help page on how to select a language when writing or translating a post. You can see the posts we do have in Urdu at this link: Please let me know if that helps, or if not, how I can be of further service.

Correct error on post[edit]

Hello! I wrote a post on Diff and it was published today. For some reason, it was published as being in "Spanish", but it is written in "Portuguese". How can I correct it? Here is the link to the post - Thank you for your help AJurno (WMB) (talk) 18:03, 17 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
