Pageviews Analysis – DocumentationFeedback forumIssue

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:


Deutscher Text über Cala Mondrago nach Weiterleitung von Cala 'Or nicht druckfähig - warum nicht?[edit]

Cala d'Or Text der deutschen Wikipedia druckbar. Die Weiterleitung zur Cala Mondrago Querverweis-Seite funktioniert ebenfalls. Wenn man den Text hier in der "Druckversion" abrufen bzw. drucken will, passiert garnichts mehr. Meldung erscheint nach gefühlten 5 Minuten: "Wikipedia reagiert nicht". Also Leute, EDV zu Fuß, oder was ?? Zurück in die 80er Jahre??? Bitte ändern lassen, es nervt echt!

Topviews' permalink button does not include search items[edit]

Thanks for the topviews visualization. I notice that it is easy to select for specific items by entering them into the Search input box. However, it would be really nice to have a way to make a permanent link to the search. The permalink button copies a link to the clipboard in Firefox and Chromium on MATE on Devuan Ascii for amd64 (but does not do so on Qupzilla) but that link does not include any search information, just exclusion data. However, the big question is how to link to a search. I've tried adding topviews_search_field to an HTTP GET request, but that does not work since that refers to an id and not to a field name. Which field name must I include in the GET to be able to permanently link to a search in the TopView's visualization? Larsnooden (talk) 07:40, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

This is a great idea. Indeed you cannot link to search results right now, but we can fix this. I have created phab:T193892. Thanks, MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 17:18, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Featured content icons[edit]

The icons for featured articles and featured lists on Pageviews Analysis screens are different. The commons links for the files themselves are here:

Featured lists use the former while featured articles use the latter. I believe they should both use the former, as that's the same image used in the top-right corners of Wikipedia articles. Jackdude101 (talk) 15:13, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

Most recent Topviews not loading[edit]

Are you aware that the Topviews for yesterday 5/8 are not loading in any language today? Everything up to 5/7 is fine though. Til Eulenspiegel (talk) 12:04, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

@Til Eulenspiegel: Is it working for you now? I'm guessing the Pageviews API was running a little behind, but has since caught up. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 14:31, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
I'm not seeing 5/8 pageviews for any article on English Wikipedia. Maile66 (talk) 14:34, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
Interesting. I know you said "any article", but to be sure, could you provide me with a link? Also what browser and operating system are you using? You don't see data for 5/8 at [1] (I do)? For troubleshooting, I would also try clearing your browser cache, though you shouldn't need to do this. You might also try a different device altogether (such as your mobile phone). There's a slight chance your DNS cache is still serving an outdated version of the data. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 14:41, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
I see it on the link you provided, but that shows stats for ONLY 5/8, and the dates preceding that are blank. How about Wikipedia's main page: Main page views. Windows 10, on Edge, Firefox and Chrome. And the only stats that are missing are 5/8. Also, I only have one device. Maile66 (talk) 15:11, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
Baffling. Not seeing data for 5/8 is one thing, but only seeing data for 5/8? That doesn't make any sense. The fact that you see the same behaviour in all browsers is also troubling. Let's try viewing the API endpoint directly. Please browse to [2], then using Ctrl+F, search for the text: 2018050800 (which would be the data for 5/8). Does that match anything? MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 15:21, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
I did Control F, and also scrolled all the way to the bottom, and the final number is 2018050700. I might have a clue. The last thing I did yesterday before powering down, was go through the Windows 10 anniversary update. If that affected this, maybe others are not seeing 5/8, and just aren't saying anything. Maile66 (talk) 16:46, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
Here's another one for you, perhaps indicating some kind of rolling update in progress. 1. This is the page that started me wondering. It was created 5/8. But when I pulled up page stats a couple of hours ago, it had no stats at all. Now it has the 5/8 stats. So far, I don't see 5/8 stats on a random searh of other pages. Kind of odd. Maile66 (talk) 17:03, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
Well the good news is that I don't think Pageviews Analysis is to blame. I know that doesn't help you, though :( I still think it's your DNS cache. To be honest I don't really understand how those things work, but I know it can sometimes cause problems similar to what you're experiencing. Eventually it will fix itself. It would sort of make sense that a Windows update would cause this, maybe... So I guess give it a day or two, and if some stats are still missing, we can troubleshoot some more. MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 17:44, 9 May 2018 (UTC)
Yes, it seems to be caught up now, thank you very much! Til Eulenspiegel (talk) 14:53, 9 May 2018 (UTC)

Open in new tab[edit]

Links opened in a new (background) tab don't work properly (in Firefox). The graph either remains blank, freezes or times out when the tab is not focussed quickly enough. (example link). Zanaq (talk) 16:27, 15 May 2018 (UTC)
