Everyone makes the occasional mistake when editing the wikis, the Tech News writers no less so than others. This page documents problems and solutions to help with troubleshooting later.

Including more languages than English in the preview[edit]

Misplaced nowiki tag in a translation made the entire sandbox-generated text from that language forward to be included, including two thirds of the languages.

Avoid modules not present in local wikis[edit]

Hi! In the last messages it has been added code from Module:Template translation, which doesn't exist on local wikis. The pages with that code get error in scripting and get included within the local Category:Pages with script errors. Would it be possible to copy Tech messages without that module call, instead of removing it by hand every time? Thanks! -Aleator (talk) 16:19, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
