This is the forum to provide feature requests, bug reports, and general feedback for the Pageviews Analysis suite of tools.

Some key notes when making a post:


Bug when accessing multiple pages in dates one of them didn't exist[edit]

I hit a bug while accidentally attempting to use the tool for articles that were not created yet in the period defined in the "Dates" field. In particular, I tried to access the stats for article Rui Rocha throughout 2021, while the page was only created in 2022.

If I enter a single page, I get an error saying "Rui Rocha: Error querying Pageviews API - Not Found". This is not really user-friendly (an error like "Page Rui Rocha did not exist in the specified period" would be better), but it's at least minimally informative and not too scary.

But if I enter multiple pages including the one that did not exist in the specified period, I get the message "Fatal error: TypeError: i is undefined" along with a red pop-up saying "Fatal error: Please refresh the page to try again or report this issue".

IMO both issues should be handled more gracefully, but the second one in particular appears to be missing a guard in the code. --Waldyrious (talk) 19:32, 5 February 2024 (UTC)Reply

I will get this fixed. Thanks for reporting and providing detailed steps to reproduce the issue! :) MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 16:20, 14 February 2024 (UTC)Reply
Restoring this thread which is being archived due to age, but hasn't (AFAICT) been resolved yet. --Waldyrious (talk) 14:43, 18 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Apologies. I will tend to this when time allows. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 19:32, 24 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

How do I see what search engines my PNG file is being referenced from?[edit]

In Mediaview Analysis, how do I see what search engines my PNG file is being referenced from? NudistPhotographer (talk) 20:03, 24 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

I don't believe this information is publicly available (at least not by the Wikimedia APIs). Sorry. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 05:15, 28 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

[bug report] Page views for some pages are obviously incorrect[edit]

For example, the number of edits of this page(俄罗斯入侵乌克兰) are more than 500 times in the last year, but displayed only 1 Edits on Pageviews Analysis.

oh, I've known why is it. when I search "俄羅斯入侵烏克蘭" for traditional Chinese, the numbers are all right. it's separately counted. Suteru (talk) 06:53, 8 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

mobile percent on pageviews without going through topviews[edit]

currently theres no way to have a breakdown between mobile views vs desktop views on the "pageviews" tool. it would be nice to both have the option to specify in the options menu to split query between mobile and desktop, as well as having them individually. it would be nice to also have it split further (i.e. browser type) but im unsure if thats outside of the scope the data has Bejuazun (talk) 05:58, 26 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
