Question[edit]

If I understand correctly, can't I edit several pages and save them all at once? I tried to use it but got lost because I didn't know which pages I modified and which pages I didn't. ━ ALBERTOLEONCIO Who, me? 11:24, 17 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Let me explain:
  • You click in Edit In Sequence
  • After your rnormal edit, when clicking on the blue button "publish", a popup windows asks you to decide what to do in the next page: there you choose to save and go to the next page and that's the trick!
  • After that action, every time you click in "publish" you save the page and skip to the next page without going out of the edit interface. If you plan to edit many pages in sequence it can save you a lot of steps (typically "save" + "go to the next page" + "edit").

Bad synchronization while changing page in prevew mode[edit]

Dear @Sohom, I met a dangerous bug, I cannot describe it in technical terms so I will just illustrate it here:

  • I am editing a page with edit in sequence... then
  • I Click on "preview" to check my edit. I'm fine with it so
  • I click publish without exiting from preview... so
  • sometimes the new preview does not match the new image page and exiting from the preview returns the wikitext of the old page!

this behaviour is not consistent but it happened to me more than once. O_o - εΔω 01:53, 19 August 2023 (UTC)

Hello, I confirm this on frws : on more than one occasions, the "publish" button did not publish, but put back the older text (the one before editing) --Hsarrazin (talk) 07:25, 20 August 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Faced similar issues. Sometimes, clicking 'Publish' and expecting to go to the next page will result in me being given the image of the previous page. Ciridae (talk) 04:12, 5 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Issues with status change and OCR[edit]

I have this issue on multiple pages now when validating pages that were proofread by another user. I made changes and published those changes using the 'Edit pages in sequence' method but without changing the status to 'Validated'. Now I can't change the status to 'Validated' at all even though I should be able to. It seems this method is overwriting the user who made the status change even in cases where no status change was made, instead of simply saving.

This feature is also not very useful for proofreading pages, especially if you are creating the pages from scratch; i.e. if the pages aren't already saved as 'Not proofread'. New pages turn up blank, and the OCR button gives you the text layer of the first page only (the page where you clicked 'Edit in sequence' even if the button is being clicked on other pages.

Enable on English Wikipedia?[edit]

Came here because of weekly Tech News which tell me that I can test it by going to the Beta's tab in Preferences. However, I don't see such options hence is this enable on English Wikipedia? Paper9oll (talk) 15:13, 5 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Paper9oll: As mentioned in the Tech News item, EiS is a feature that allows users to edit pages faster on Wikisource (emphasis added), and is only available on Wikisource. It's not available on English Wikipedia, sorry! Sam Wilson 03:12, 6 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Samwilson Oh ... my bad! I misunderstood as new wikitext feature, didn't know wikisource existed. Thanks for the clarification. Paper9oll (talk) 05:08, 6 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Paper9oll: No worries! Come over to Wikisource and try it out. :-) Sam Wilson 05:20, 6 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

preview of page without header and status not proofread[edit]

I used EIS in pt. and fr. wikisources, and after the reported troubles (that I experienced) I declined. Now every page I edit, when previewd it does not show the header and the status is "not proofread". When "show changes" it shows:

 Latest revision           Your text
Page status          Page status
- !Proofread         + !Not proofread
Header (no include)  Header (no include)
Line 1               Line 1
- {{nr|nnn|xxx}}     +

I cleaned the cache, unmarked the beta feature, but I can't revert this side effect, in both wikisources. When I publish the page these supposed changes are not published (and shouldn't), only the preview if affected. How do I solve this behaviour? Ceciliawolf (talk) 16:13, 29 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

When I create a page and mark as "proofread" it behaves the same, that is, I can never see the header. When I want to see the header I put the code in the "include" frame and put it back to the "noinclude" frame after tests. Ceciliawolf (talk) 16:38, 29 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Problem after a few pages edit[edit]

When I use EIS on a book, after a few pages (the best,a dozen ; the worst, only 2), when passing to the next page, the image is updated, but the text displayed is not the text of the corresponding page, but (generally) the last edited page.

The only way to get out of it is stop EIS by going back to Index: page and start again... this is really problematic. Hsarrazin (talk) 09:56, 30 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Feels clunkier[edit]

I have to click more stuff to publish changes, see the source before the preview, do one more click to change the page status, and all of this just to use one less click to go to the next page. Aaron Liu (talk) 21:26, 11 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]
