New tool[edit]

Hi, Johan. Checked a couple of wikis and a couple of pages on the same wiki, it does not do anything. IKhitron (talk) 01:53, 2 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi IKhitron, which wikis? See this page that I just checked right now for example. Or on mediawiki.org (but I don't think it works for Flow, so not on talk pages there). /Johan (WMF) (talk) 05:55, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
Hewiki and ruwiki. Tried again now. IKhitron (talk) 12:05, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
As I tried to indicate by specifically mentioning Meta, this is for "international" wikis, so to speak, rather than content wikis. Tried to clarify. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 13:48, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
But the autocomplete works for all wikis. IKhitron (talk) 14:52, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
I'll point the developer to this conversation. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 15:04, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
Actually, when I look at it, it works for other wikis as well; it's just not very informative as almost everyone has that wiki as their home wiki. See this example from Swedish Wikipedia. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 15:07, 2 October 2020 (UTC)
For me, it doesn't. I'm not talking about 0 results. IKhitron (talk) 00:47, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
If you get no results on the link given by Johan above or this hewiki link, your browser might be the reason. Stryn (talk) 08:43, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
I do get results from Johan's link or your's one, but I can't run my one queries from hewiki or ruwiki. There is no problem for enwiki. IKhitron (talk) 15:28, 3 October 2020 (UTC)
@IKhitron: Just a random example from hewiki, it works for me. Could you post an example URL of the tool you’re having issues with? What browser do you use? —Tacsipacsi (talk) 11:02, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
It works for me now, surprisingly. I hope it will stay that way. Samsung Internet. IKhitron (talk) 11:12, 6 October 2020 (UTC)
