Another request for update[edit]


I have made a minor update (fixed a typo) to the template/temp, there should be "Zbierka citátov" under slovak wikiquote.. For more info please see this discussion.. Can the front page be updated accordingly? -- 10:26, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Was done  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 01:48, 9 October 2008 (UTC)


According to new stats, as in Wikipedia portal (based on number of views), I've updated the template. Please review it, particurarly fr and tr (ja and el search box are still missing; cs and sl must be removed; "above 1000" bookshelf is correct). --Nemo 11:31, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

I don't see any problem regarding the French part. Merry Christmas! chtit_draco talk page 12:35, 25 December 2008 (UTC)
(New wikistats are down, now, but the number of views part was correct, AFAIK. --Nemo 17:25, 25 December 2008 (UTC))


Ukrainian, Greek and Hungarian already have more than 1000 articles, however, they are still listed one level below. Please move them up. Thanks — NickK 21:02, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Simple English Wikiquote is a closed project. Although it is still viewable, historical Wikimedia projects probably should not be listed here. ~ Ningauble 14:50, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Agreed, Yes check.svg removed. Pmlineditor  15:40, 2 April 2010 (UTC)


{{editprotected}} Consider using File:Bookshelf-40x201 6.png in the template instead, it has been optimized for file size, and is already in use at The change has already been made to template/temp.--Svgalbertian 03:52, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

According to this discussion, you may consider changing the former Wiktionary logo into the new one. It has already changed in and Thanks in advance. — Tanvir 15:16, 28 July 2010 (UTC)


Does anyone mind if I convert this to HTML5? It will shave off a few bytes from this page. mc10 (t/c) 02:46, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

It is my understanding that HTML5 is still under development, and that the target date for resolving interoperability issues is 2014. While I am not aware of any of the particulars, I would be leery of changes to this page that might not be supported by all browsers that are currently used by any significant number of users. ~ Ningauble 16:58, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
Actually, HTML5 was meant to be backwards compatible, so pretty much all browsers (even the old ones, like IE 6) are able to render HTML5 pages (albeit as HTML 4 or something). mc10 (t/c) 16:33, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

1.18 update[edit]

There's several 404 errors and other things that are no longer in sync with what is in the HEAD of a Monobook-skin MediaWiki page. I've went ahead and did several edits to update it. It is also using an HTML5 doctype, this is backwards compatible. We're not using anything new in HTML5, just it's syntax (just like MediaWiki 1.18 does by default now, as seen on Some points:

  • ./skins-1.5 no longer exists, fix 404 error
  • ./monobook/main.css still exists, but loading from ResourceLoader now for minification and combination with print stylesheet (which was loaded separately)
  • HTML5 html5-style doctype, charset, css/javascript links
  • Update CSS
  • Update JS
  • Remove <big> tags, using CSS classes instead

Edits: [1][2][3][4]

Six project portals use the same layout and have the same functionality. It would probably be useful to have common template, style sheet and js for them, which can be updated when necessary. Currently one needs to update all them separately. Ruslik 07:45, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Inconsistent emphasis[edit]


Three language names, Español, Français, and Türkçe, are tagged with "<big><strong>", while the others use "<strong class="name">". The resulting disparity in displayed font size is not good. Please use one or the other, I don't care which, not a mixture. ~ Ningauble (talk) 22:34, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Done, thanks for notifying. Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 15:03, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, much better. Español now has a duplicate "<strong>" tag, but it does not appear (in my browser) to be causing any problems. ~ Ningauble (talk) 18:41, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
  • This fix has been reverted,[5] so we may need another solution to the problem. There is definitely a problem in not using the same formatting tags on all of the languages for consistency. ~ Ningauble (talk) 21:35, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
    Sorry for reverting, I thought I looked at the discussion and didn't see anything. The change I reverted made all bold for me, while the old version didn't have any apparent problem, so I restored the less problematic version but I didn't have time to investigate more. As you pointed our above, it was only a duplicate tag; I've removed it and now all seems ok to me, I hope it is for you as well. --Nemo 23:48, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
    Thanks for completing the fix. It works for me now. ~ Ningauble (talk) 17:07, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Update li[edit]

{{Edit protected}} Li.wq has reached 1,000 entrees. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 04:24, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

I updated template/temp. Ruslik (talk) 07:04, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
Thank you :) --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 08:00, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
I have replaced the canonical URLs with relative ones. The temp page should now be checked and if acceptable the main page synchronised with it. Allen4names (talk) 17:16, 20 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes check.svg Done moved liwikiquote. Will now look at urls.
    • Fixed the few remaining hard urls; sync'd back to the temp version. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:43, 21 July 2012 (UTC)


I think this can be removed. Thoughts? PiRSquared17 (talk) 17:27, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, didn't see this topic. It's a tag for IE6 feature "smart tags", I think it's useless now. — putnik 18:08, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it's safe to remove. See also Talk:Project portals#2012 update. –Krinkletalk 18:23, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Autonym font[edit]

Please see my proposal for enabling the new Autonym font as a fallback font here. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 05:39, 3 November 2013 (UTC)


We've been minifying the CSS on this page for months to cut down the page size. It's not a huge deal for this particular portal; the Wiktionary portal has considerably more CSS, so it's more important there. In any case, it's a temporary situation. template is the only portal that uses MediaWiki:Gadget-wm-portal.css but doesn't use the new CSS rules we've added to the other portals. I've got changes in template/temp that remove the dependency on Gadget-wm-portal.css, so we can move all the <style> tags over to a shared, automatically minified stylesheet, but first I need to finish making 2× versions of all the logos on template. If anyone would like to help out, please feel free! – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 06:20, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

I don't understand how this justifies to not keep /temp and the main page in synchronisation. They can both use the minimized stuff, it that is better. --MF-W 01:10, 3 April 2014 (UTC)
In my opinion, it would be a bit harder to maintain to CSS that way. (I just run the CSS through CSS Minifier, nothing fancy.) If you feel strongly that we should keep both pages literally in sync, we can do that, at the (temporary) expense of larger page sizes. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 10:36, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
What is the benefit of a page that just has a few spaces and linebreaks less? --MF-W 14:05, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
A slightly larger page size, that's all. At the moment, minification makes up for the increased markup needed for 2× images and the Wiktionary portal's logo-swapping feature. But I don't feel very strongly about minifying the CSS since eventually it'll all end up in Gadget-wm-portal.css, which ResourceLoader automatically minifies for us. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 06:22, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Update wiki globe[edit]

Persian Wikiquote is ranked 11. Can't it go on the globe? --Doostdar (talk) 14:08, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

No, unless I'm misunderstanding what you mean. Persian is 21st (stats:wikiquote/EN/Sitemap.htm) and there are only 10 wikis at the top. --Nemo 19:12, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
So what is this for?--Doostdar (talk) 12:36, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
For simple statistics. --Nemo 13:28, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
May you put Persian Wikibooks on the Wikibooks globe now? --Doostdar (talk) 16:31, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
