Progress[edit]

Has there been any progress on this proposal? πr2 (t • c) 22:01, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

I updated the page with the current status. —Pathoschild 14:39, 07 September 2014 (UTC)
@PiRSquared17: Hopefully, this will happen soon: bugzilla:70576. --Glaisher (talk) 06:20, 19 November 2014 (UTC)
It's now live at beta labs! :-) [1][2] --Glaisher (talk) 12:13, 21 November 2014 (UTC)
It's now live on all wikis! —Pathoschild 14:11, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Past discussions[edit]


I trimmed the subject-space page to make it more focused (higher signal, lower noise). These discussion links might be interesting, but I think users will primarily be asking "how do I set up a global user page?" or "how do I opt out?", so I'm moving these links to the talk page. --MZMcBride (talk) 00:22, 19 November 2014 (UTC)

Change the central wiki?[edit]

Please see MW:Help talk:Extension:GlobalUserPage#Change the central wiki?. Thanks. Rehman 10:09, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Notification[edit]

Has there been any notification to the users that content of the meta wiki would be immediately be shown on any other wiki, unless there is a different user page? --Angela H. (talk) 13:09, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I second that. I was surprised, negatively, when I found my user page content from Meta where I did not place it. I guess that many other Wikipedians don't know that their user page is copied to other wikis. Ziko (talk) 19:20, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
There wasn't a notification to each and every user with a user page here but global user pages were widely advertised on various places when it was deployed. An edit notice is also shown on the Meta user page informing that it will be shown across the wikis although it's not a notification. --Glaisher (talk) 17:31, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Babel[edit]

How do I do babel userboxes or whatever the new equivalent is? (I want to say "native English speaker, fr-0.25, don't speak anything else" and possibly "can sometimes puzzle stuff out with Google Translate") - David Gerard (talk) 10:45, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

The new language boxes aren't that granular. The closest you can get is {{#babel:en|fr-1}}. —Pathoschild 13:18, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
Aha, thank you! - David Gerard (talk) 16:57, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

Can I turn this off?[edit]

I will decide what I put and where, it's not for others to make that decision. BarkingFish (talk) 20:07, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Yep. See mw:Help:Extension:GlobalUserPage#Controlling what content is displayed. —Pathoschild 20:23, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks :) BarkingFish (talk) 00:01, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Translation: “See also” > GlobalCssJs is outdated[edit]

In “See also”, you have listed GlobalCssJs however that linked page says it is outdated and urges you to use Synchbot. How can I translate the line? Could you delete the GlobalCssJs line? Omotecho (talk) 02:42, 20 December 2017 (UTC)

Done, thanks for pointing that out. —Pathoschild 14:57, 20 December 2017 (UTC)
