Navigation Popups[edit]

I made a list at w:Wikipedia talk:Tools/Navigation popups#List of places Popups is used, of everything I could find. It seems to be one of the most widespread gadgets. Just thought I'd mention here, in case it's useful. Quiddity (talk) 19:10, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

And Commons?[edit]

Hi,

It seems you forgot Commons... Yann (talk) 09:42, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

@Yann, we didn't add Commons to the list here as it combines gadgets from different languages, and Commons is only a one site for different languages. But to make the list complete and to include all the major projects we will include it. Thanks, eranroz (talk) 15:36, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Gadgets names[edit]

I've found at least two issues:

BTW many thanks for releasing this dataset. I've already found some new gadgets to import on wikis that I'm sysop =) Lugusto 13:07, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

@Lugusto thank you for your feedback. We want this gallery to be updated periodically by bot (it doesn't work this way yet due to bugzilla:58196), so we didn't fix duplications manually as it may be overriden by the next run. However, we will provide a semi-automatic solution for duplications, so users can merge different gadgets names and keep it up to date after bot updates. eranroz (talk) 20:55, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Misnamed gadgets[edit]

Hello,

Some gadgets aren't named correctly; in Gadgets/wiktionary:

However, this list is great, thank you to keep it updated! — Automatik (talk) 08:38, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

Automatik, the data is based on user_properties table in DB, which still contains old records. It is possible to improve the report by eliminating gadgets that don't appear in Gadget-definition. eranroz (talk) 14:16, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
eranroz : even in the past, the gadget wikt:fr:MediaWiki:Gadget--ChercheDansSousCategories didn't exist. So there is a parsing (or an interpretation) issue - it is not just a question of time -, am I wrong? — Automatik (talk) 20:09, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
Automatik - see wikt:fr:Special:GadgetUsage. The list there, as the above list, is based on the name given to the gadget in MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition. eranroz (talk) 20:14, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
