Global preferences available for testing[edit]

Please help translate to your language.


Global preferences, a highly request feature in the 2016 Community Wishlist, is available for testing.

  1. Read over the help page, it is brief and has screenshots
  2. Login or register an account on Beta English Wikipedia
  3. Visit Global Preferences and try enabling and disabling some settings
  4. Visit some other language and project test wikis such as English Wikivoyage, the Hebrew Wikipedia and test the settings
  5. Report your findings, experience, bugs, and other observations

Once the team has feedback on design issues, bugs, and other things that might need worked out, the problems will be addressed and global preferences will be sent to the wikis.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! --Keegan (WMF) (talk) 00:24, 27 February 2018 (UTC)

Hiding UniversalLanguageSelector[edit]

Is it possible to hide UniversalLanguageSelector at the 'personal toolbar'? Namely... the underlined in screenshot.

English Create Account Log in

Because... less thing to click, better. I don't need to click the settings anyway, and seems I can use it on Preferences too. — regards, Revi 15:13, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

@-revi: Have you tried #pt-uls { display: none; } in your personal CSS? --Malyacko (talk) 15:21, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
Was about to suggest the same thing, Malyacko was just a bit quicker with typing his reply. --Wiki13 talk 15:26, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks Malyacko and Wiki13! Special:Diff/17785491 works just great. — regards, Revi 15:34, 1 March 2018 (UTC)

@Surprizi: Use proper spelling (not all in capital letters) and the problem will not happen. :) (Errm, did you just vandalize the article about "1", instead of creating some test case for example on your user page?)--Malyacko (talk) 18:27, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
I'll delete it later. I made another text. problem stays! (ақыҭақәа)--Surprizi (talk) 18:46, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

TEST_PAGE--Surprizi (talk) 18:51, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

@Surprizi: Thanks! For everyone else, [[ақыҭ]]ақәа is the example. This might require a software change ("patch") to introduce a regular expression for the (not yet existing) $linkTrail setting in phab:source/mediawiki/browse/master/languages/messages/MessagesAb.php. See mw:Gerrit/Tutorial if you would like to propose a patch, or see mw:How to report a bug if you do not plan to write a patch yourself. is an example for such a patch for the Urdu language. --Malyacko (talk) 18:53, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
I don't know what and how change. If there are kind people please help us! :)--Surprizi (talk) 18:57, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
@Surprizi: See the link that I provided: mw:How to report a bug. --Malyacko (talk) 18:59, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Thanks!--Surprizi (talk) 03:51, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
phab:T189923, for anyone else. :) --Malyacko (talk) 08:15, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
