Inserimento link[edit]

Salve. Vorrei inserire un link che indirizza a sito esterno in un testo. Ho già provato più volte ma viene considerato come indirizzo pubblicitario. Come risolvere?

il link è questo: ho provato a creare una pagina anche ma non mi accetta i link. testi e link sono originali e non sono usati a scopo pubblicitario.

Is it possible to download a raw dataset of all world government organizations (city, state, province, etc.)?

If there is not a data value indicating it's a government organization, are all URLS in a table so that I can programmatically deduce which URLs are government, therefore indirectly indicating all government organizations?

wikipedia font size too small[edit]

how do i increase the font size in the wikipedia app i just down loaded to my laptop as it is way too small, the std font that came with the wikipedia app?!? thank you. The wikipedia app is a good alternative for search!

A: On your computer, open Chrome. At the top right, click More Settings. At the bottom, click Show advanced settings. Under "Web Content," make the changes you want: Change everything: Next to "Page zoom," click the Down arrow . Then select the zoom option you want.

Math equations missing in all pages[edit]

In Firefox 3 and some older versions of IE the <math> is not rendered, the <meta> with "background: url()" using svg graphic is not rendered either. The pages without equations are crippled to uselessness. In mid-april 2016 it worked well with using PNG images, and also pages like refer to using PNG images... There is no mention of changing math technology in your "Tech news" either (at least since March this year, the change occured sometimes after mid-april...)

Using this old versions of web-browsers may be an important security-issue, since newer versions of Firefox with Firefox.js compiled into Omni.ja prevents security editing of snooping configuration items, the Chrome and some IE are unsecure due to inability to switch off javascript, very poor configuration options and more problems...

Web pages packed to MHT (MIME html) file format may be displayed inline in some e-mail clients, which also probably will not support <math> tags...

book and pdf creator font size[edit]

I do like the 2-column download pdf and create book options. I like to print them with the Adobe Reader print as booklet option. However, the font is then just a bit to small. I can increase that with the scale option of pdfjam bust just 8%. Is there somewhere hidden an option of the book creator for increasing the font size?? (I run Linux) Cheers, Janwillem

How to create P31 and P279 properties in my wikibase repository[edit]

I want to create a portal based on wikibase. I used [Wikidata build]. How can I create P31 (instance of) and P279 (subclass of) properties in my wikibase.

Problem back[edit]

Do you remember problems in es:WP this? It seems the problems are back, but only to Firefox users (like me). The bar and other scripts come and go intermittently. It´s possible to restore the bar pressing Preview several times, even when this is not a permanent or practical solution. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 13:38, 19 December 2016 (UTC)

@Ganímedes: Please see the console output of your web browser's developer tools to find reasons for such problems. In this case, ext.gadget.DetectaDesambiguaciones is broken: "TypeError: mw.Api is not a constructor". The line needs to be fixed by a sysop or admin of Spanish Wikipedia. See the docs. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 10:42, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, -AKlapper, I'll do that. Regards. --Ganímedes (talk) 12:49, 27 December 2016 (UTC)


Hi, I am Shriheeran, In a wikipedia in in my common css file i have typed, "display: none;" But now I can't see any thing in that wiki as I have typed that. I know any stewards or admins can edit that page and make my display on that wiki to visible. But how can I solve this problem myself rather than asking help to admins or stewards. Is there are any way please help and answer to my question!--Shriheeran (talk) 10:12, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

@Shriheeran: There is no such file on ta.wp. Please provide a full link. You could probably also edit the file from any other account, or when not being logged in (though that will expose your IP address)? --Malyacko (talk) 10:35, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
IP's can't edit user css/js files. --Stryn (talk) 10:38, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
Which Wikipedia? It's not easy to undo by yourself. With AWB it would be possible or using browser's developer console (or something like that) for example. Stryn (talk) 10:38, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
This is the link and please undo it--Shriheeran (talk) 13:14, 26 December 2016 (UTC)
Removed. Stryn (talk) 13:28, 26 December 2016 (UTC)

"This page is using the deprecated ResourceLoader module"[edit]

Hello. Checking the console from my browser, I get this three warnings:

  • This page is using the deprecated ResourceLoader module "jquery.ui.widget".
  • This page is using the deprecated ResourceLoader module "jquery.ui.position".
  • This page is using the deprecated ResourceLoader module "jquery.ui.core".

    Please use "mediawiki.ui.button" or "oojs-ui" instead.

Please let me know if this is a deprecation in the skins code, etc, so we can have them fixed. Thanks, —MarcoAurelio 12:49, 31 December 2016 (UTC)

How to trace while developing a MediaWiki extension?[edit]

How to add tracing (for bug hunting) code to my MediaWiki extension?

When I add echo "XXX"; or var_dump(...);, I don't see it in output (despite the code line where I put this tracing works for sure, as I checked by adding exit(0); instead of this tracing and watching it crashing by exit as expected).

Written Sign Language Wiki: Standards and forward movement[edit]

The American Sign Language Wikipedia is available on Incubator. We are still working on the technical infrastructure, but we have 58 articles and growing.

Sutton SignWriting is a way to write any sign language on paper or computer. 672 Unicode characters have been accepted for the script, but these characters are insufficient to write the script and do not sort properly. The accepted characters deal with the individual symbols, but do not handle the 2-dimensional layout of a sign.

For the ASL Wikipedia, the text is stored as a lite ASCII markup (known as Formal SignWriting), rather than Unicode, and converted into an SVG image on the client side with a Gadget. In an ideal world, the text would be stored as Unicode, but this isn't currently available.

The Center for Sutton Movement Writing is proposing an additional 17 Unicode control characters to fix sorting, handle the 2-dimensional arrangement, and complete the script encoding. As part of the new character proposal, we are preparing a 2-D font that will properly display the script without the need for a gadget.

Unicode is obviously the answer, but what happens when it's not available? I'm hoping for support of the Center for Sutton Movement Writing's proposal for the new characters. I've put together a Wikimedia grant proposal to help create the 2-D font. Any comments or endorsements would be appreciated.

This issue will come to a head when it is time to move a sign language Wikipedia from Incubator into production. We are probably a few years away from that point, but there are multiple sign languages that will be involved. Currently, SignWriting is more popular in Brazil (required in several universities for a sign language degree) than in the United States, so it's possible the Brazilian Sign Language will be the first to move to production even though they haven't officially started yet.

In an ideal world, we will complete the 2-D font, get the new characters added to the Unicode standard, and convert the text from ASCII to Unicode during the move to production. I'm hoping that the Wikimedia Community will support our efforts along the way. -Slevinski (talk) 16:56, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Sorting in categories on cswiki[edit]

Hello, can I ask for help? On cswiki, articles in categories are sorted by uca-cs Unicode collation. Is there any option, how to get list of the actual order of symbols/letters for our language wikipedia mutation? Because we have some categorization rules on our wiki, but they are broken because of the conversion from ASCII to Unicode in collations (I know it is a while ago, but nobody's cared until now). We want to update/improve the rules, but we don't know the order. --Dvorapa (talk) 15:20, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Hi Dvorapa. I imagine Ryan Kaldari can help you out. Or you can file a task in Phabricator. --MZMcBride (talk) 01:10, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
@MZMcBride: I waited if Ryan Kaldari could help, but I think I try Phabricator then. Thank you. --Dvorapa (talk) 21:26, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Developer Wishlist Survey: propose your ideas[edit]

At the Wikimedia Developer Summit, we decided to organize a Developer Wishlist Survey, and here we go:

The Wikimedia technical community seeks input from developers for developers, to create a high-profile list of desired improvements. The scope of the survey includes the MediaWiki platform (core software, APIs, developer environment, enablers for extensions, gadgets, templates, bots, dumps), the Wikimedia server infrastructure, the contribution process, and documentation.

The best part: we want to have the results published by Wednesday, February 15. Yes, in a month, to have a higher chance to influence the Wikimedia Foundation annual plan FY 2017-18.

There's no time to lose. Propose your ideas before the end of January, either by pushing existing tasks in Phabricator or by creating new ones. You can find instructions on the wiki page. Questions and feedback are welcome especially on the related Talk page.

The voting phase is expected to start on February 6 (tentative). Watch this space (or even better, the wiki page) - SSethi_(WMF) January 21st, 2017 3:07 AM (UTC)
