From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Welcome to the Pageviews Analysis feedback forum

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]

Number of observers[edit]

The number of observers, if less than 30, is not displayed. Xedin (?!) 13:54, 12 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

If there are fewer than 30 page watchers, the exact number is hidden (except for admins). This is something imposed by MediaWiki, not Pageviews Analysis. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 17:43, 13 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

February 17th and 18th down to zero on[edit]

Tracked in Phabricator:
Task T357910

Hey guys. The last two viewing days (February 17th and 18th) are not indicated on the Portuguese Wikipedia. All the articles I consult appear at zero. See here, eg. Regards, Sturm (talk) 03:11, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

It's missing in English too, seems a generalized problem. Igordebraga (talk) 03:27, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Also in Hebrew Wikiedia. היידן (talk) 04:10, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Article WP (fr) J. Minot (created February, 17) : Pageviews doesn't work[edit]

La requête Statistiques de consultation (Analyse des pages vues) retourne le message d'erreur suivant : J. Minot: Erreur lors de la requête Pageviews API - Not Found Boncoincoin (talk) 08:16, 19 February 2024 (UTC)Boncoincoin[reply]

It's OK now. Many thanks. Boncoincoin (talk) 16:22, 19 February 2024 (UTC)Boncoincoin[reply]

Why doesn't the GA status show up?[edit]

When i search the Pageviews Analysis for Haile Selassie I which is rated GA status it says it is class "C" while clearly being GA or Good article, while every other Good article is showed as a GA on the Pageviews Analysis why is that in this case that being Haile Selassie the GA status does not show up in the tool? the source is here Link to Pageviews CtasACT (talk) 02:30, 1 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

@CtasACT It still has a classification of "C" for w:WP:MILHIST, which is the first classification that shows up in the database: [1]. I'm not sure if that was an oversight during the GA review, or if Military History is meant to have a separate review process. mw:Extension:PageAssessments is the mechanism that stores quality assessments, and it has no knowledge of which WikiProject assessment should be the "overall" assessment.

Question about Mediaviews Analysis[edit]

I didn't see this explained on the page, so I wanted to ask here since I'm curious.

  • What is "referers" referring to? And how can one access an audio file "internally" or "externally" - is it just somehow found on Google? What is "none" mean, in this case?
  • And probably an obvious one, but I'm assuming "requests" = playcounts? If so, is there a way we can see the average length these playcounts?
