Mejorar la pagina.[edit]

Buenos dias. Tengo un hijo especial a el se le dificulta escojer los videos por ejemplo del Chavo del 8, si ubiera la posibilidad de de organizar los videos que estan de lado derecho, por ejemplo; si voi aver videos del Chavo estos aparecen a la derecha en forma vertical pero mezclado con otro tipo de video y si se pudiera seleccionar con el raton cada video del chavo y moverlos y organizarlos que queden puros videos del chavo en forma vertical y estos se ejecuten uno a uno en forma secuencial.

Espero que esto le sirva de algo.

Special:ChangePassword doesn't work but throws no errors[edit]

Hello. The password change page does not work. When I go to save the password the password does not change. Thanks! AlPaD (talk) 19:05, 8 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hello, can you help me please? Thanks! AlPaD (talk) 07:23, 22 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Out of personal experience I know one confusing thing to remember. When you choose a new password, you are asked to log in again. You must use your old password! Doing so will change your password. L10nM4st3r (talk) 14:44, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

about tracking changes IP[edit]

I'm having trouble, when I tracking changes page, the IP of the anonymous user is showing the IP of my website, not the IP of the actual user. I don't know what I did. how can i fix it, thanks

Hard to say without more information. Does this happen on a Wikimedia wiki? Which exact full URL? --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 10:23, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Caching issues[edit]

Can't get a response anywhere else. Per [[1]] there seems to be an ongoing issue with caching. The last few days, we've had to purge the cache when we edit our Preps and Queue section at the Did You Know project to get changes to show up. I posted at Village Pump, but no one responded. Cwmhiraeth had noted that they are having the same issue on both DYK and "Picture of the Day". What is going on? Maile66 (talk) 12:22, 25 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Code typing problem on the Old English Wikipedia[edit]

Since 22 April 2022, something has gone wrong in coding behindthe Old English Wikipedia ('angː'), making it impossible to type wiki code on the code-editing page. (My edits since then have involved voluminous copy-and-paste or typing in Word before pasting into the code editing page.) It is not affecting any other wiki as far as I can see.

I have found several oddities so far as I type, and they all prevent the effective typing of wiki code, for exampleː

  1. Typing a double square bracket, [[ or ]], turns them into a curly single quote: ʽ or ʼ .
  2. A colon comes out as a similar but different character (ː) which of course does not have the same effect in wiki coding.
  3. An asterisk does not appear but typing it puts an umlaut or trema over the following letter;
  4. Tildes cannot be typed either.
  5. Likewise plus sign, percentage sign, dollar sign etc and possible others I have not come across.

Does anyone know why this is happening and can they fix it?

@Hogweard: Hi, see ang:Brūcend:Hogweard/common.js and mw:Help:Locating broken scripts. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 14:48, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. I have not worked out how to fix it or what I am looking for or where to look for it. It turns out that it is just me: on any computer and any browser, the result is the same if I am logged in. If I am not logged in or if I borrow someone else's log-in, I can edit as normal. Hogweard (talk) 11:54, 28 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It is all sorted out. It turned out to be the daftest thing you could imagine: the wee icon at the top right of the edit screen was set to 'International phonetic alphabet'. I changed it to 'Use native keyboard', and it has been back to normal! Hogweard (talk) 16:09, 30 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Hiding objects on all but one page[edit]

On Wikibooks, how can I setup Monobook.css to hide an element on all pages exept the Watchlist? Thanks! L10nM4st3r (talk) 14:52, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@L10nM4st3r: See mw:Manual:CSS. If that doesn't help, please be way more specific and describe the underlying problem to solve and not only the solution that you have in mind. :) Thanks, --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 14:58, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
So I want to hide the siteNotice element unless I'm on my Watchlist since that is the sort of thing that I would want on my watchlist but not on every single page. I can't seem to make a working .js file as my device doesn't seem to support it, so that is out of the picture. L10nM4st3r (talk) 15:22, 27 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@L10nM4st3r: You can exclude things with the :not() selector. Data applicable for the whole page is usually stored as class names for the <body> element. Special pages have two page-specific classes: one that all pages have, which contains the translated special page name (e.g. page-Spezial_Beobachtungsliste in German) and one that is specific to special pages and contains the canonical (English) special page name (mw-special-Watchlist); I suggest using the latter, as that works across languages, should you want to reuse the snippet elsewhere. Putting together, in this case you need
body:not(.mw-special-Watchlist) .mw-dismissable-notice {
	display: none;
}

@Tacsipacsi: Oh wow, thanks! It works! L10nM4st3r (talk) 09:29, 3 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Tacsipacsi: How about for the edit page? How would I exclude an edit page with "not"?L10nM4st3r (talk) 18:53, 13 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@L10nM4st3r: Actions have action-* classes on <body>action-view, action-edit, action-history etc. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 01:35, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
First, how can I specify more than one thing to exclude (comma-seperated seems to not exclude it on any page), and second, how do I only include a specific page? Thanks a ton so far!L10nM4st3r (talk) 08:05, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Also, I can't get either "body:not(action-edit)" nor "body:not(.action-edit)" to work when previewing. What am I doing wrong?L10nM4st3r (talk) 08:12, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@L10nM4st3r: According to MDN, comma-separated entries should work within :not(), but you can just put more than one :not() after each other (e.g. body:not(.action-view):not(.action-edit) applies when the action is anything but view or edit). Including a specific page is pretty easy: just leave out the :not() part, e.g. body.mw-special-Watchlist will apply only on the watchlist.
When you preview the edit, the action is no longer edit, but submit, so you need to include/exclude .action-submit as well. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 14:11, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Is this a bug?[edit]

See User:L10nM4st3r/monobook.css. It doesn't work. It worked when I typed it in Wikibooks:User:L10nM4st3r/monobook.css (as does everything else that is there). I made sure the skin I use is the same everywhere, which is monobook. Could somebody please explain what is happening? Thanks. L10nM4st3r (talk) 11:03, 10 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@L10nM4st3r: You copied it incorrectly: visibility: none isn’t valid, only display: none is. By the way, I suggest you to use User:L10nM4st3r/global.css instead (unless you want to hide the logout button only specifically on Meta and Wikibooks), as global.css automatically loads on all Wikimedia wikis (and also all skins, but that doesn’t matter if you use Monobook everywhere). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 01:02, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! Could an admin please delete User:L10nM4st3r/monobook.css and User:L10nM4st3r/global.js. L10nM4st3r (talk) 08:24, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Error while trying to use parsoid (vendor/mediawiki/parsoid/bin/parse.php) in docker[edit]

I am trying to use parsoid to convert wikitext to html using `php parsoid/bin.parse.sh --wt2html --inputfile <file.txt>`. I am using the latest docker version from https://hub.docker.com/_/mediawiki. But i keep getting

``` A similar error and discussion were done here but things mentioned in the thread don't work. How can I fix this/use it to convert to html?
