Tlx prefixing

Is there a proper way to prefix the tlx templates/function? I keep getting some sort of script error when I prefix them.Menachem.Moreira (talk) 05:26, 7 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

If you mean {{Wb/lad/Tlx}}, that's basically because it's missing Module:template (which should not be created). Please create one at Module:Wb/lad/Template and correctly prefix #invoke of {{Wb/lad/Tlx}}. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 09:08, 7 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
By correctly prefixing #invoke do you mean #invoke:Wb/lad? Menachem.Moreira (talk) 15:23, 7 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah. Fixed for now :) --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 15:58, 7 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Request for an edittools box for Livonian

Hi, I'd like to request for an edittools box for Livonian, based on a (I presume) Vietnamese box (at MediaWiki:Edittools/vi) it should looks like this:

__NOEDITSECTION__<!-- Text here will be shown below edit and upload forms. -->
<div class="plainlinks" style="margin-top:1px;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:#aaaaaa;padding:5px;">
'''[[Wikipedia:Livonian language|Līvõkīel tǟdõd]]:'''
<charinsert> Ā Ä Ǟ </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> ā ä ǟ </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> Ḑ </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> ḑ </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> Ē </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> ē </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> Ī </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> ī </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> Ļ </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> ļ </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> Ņ </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> ņ </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> Ō Ȯ Ȱ Õ Ȭ </charinsert> ·

<charinsert> ū </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> Ž </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> ž </charinsert> ·
<charinsert> ’ </charinsert>

Then again if something is off there – feel free to correct. I closed the only div so it should be OK, I think. Also it would be great if it appeared on Livonian incubator automatically – without the dropdown (I'm not sure if such configuration is available though.) This way there wouldn't be a need to specifically direct potential editors to click on the dropdown. Neitrāls vārds (talk) 20:51, 12 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

That's actually in MediaWiki:Edittools :P Done The automatic chooser you have to do it in your own JS page. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 08:49, 13 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Yeah, here we go...
First it's better to discuss about necessity of your own alphabet on Edittools in Wp/liv, and add here your proposal after community decision only. --Tomoi (diskussiitond) 10:40, 13 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks, Zhuyifei1999!
@Tomoi, I'm not sure if you've had bad experiences/disputes with Veps in this regard but I thought Liv. alphabet is pretty solid, OK, maybe I rushed ahead of time a little, to be honest I wasn't sure if I would get any response at all. Time to come up with some authoritative references on my part, I guess... Neitrāls vārds (talk) 21:41, 13 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Request for comment on Commons: Should Wikimedia support MP4 video?

I apologize for this message being only in English. Please translate it if needed to help your community.

The Wikimedia Foundation's multimedia team seeks community guidance on a proposal to support the MP4 video format. This digital video standard is used widely around the world to record, edit and watch videos on mobile phones, desktop computers and home video devices. It is also known as H.264/MPEG-4 or AVC.

Supporting the MP4 format would make it much easier for our users to view and contribute video on Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects -- and video files could be offered in dual formats on our sites, so we could continue to support current open formats (WebM and Ogg Theora).

However, MP4 is a patent-encumbered format, and using a proprietary format would be a departure from our current practice of only supporting open formats on our sites -- even though the licenses appear to have acceptable legal terms, with only a small fee required.

We would appreciate your guidance on whether or not to support MP4. Our Request for Comments presents views both in favor and against MP4 support, based on opinions we’ve heard in our discussions with community and team members.

Please join this RfC -- and share your advice.

All users are welcome to participate, whether you are active on Commons, Wikipedia, other Wikimedia project -- or any site that uses content from our free media repository.

You are also welcome to join tomorrow's Office hours chat on IRC, this Thursday, January 16, at 19:00 UTC, if you would like to discuss this project with our team and other community members.

We look forward to a constructive discussion with you, so we can make a more informed decision together on this important topic. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 06:47, 16 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Dynamic Navigation now translatable

I can't remember exactly who requested this before, but the "show" and "hide" links for the dynamic navigation bars (Special:RecentChanges has got one at the top) are now translatable. Translators: Please help by going to MediaWiki:DynamicNavigation.js‎ and adding your translation there. If you can't translate it on that page, or don't want to, please feel free to put your translation here and someone will copy it over. Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 13:31, 21 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

OK, well, please add my translation. Thanks in advance.

Added that, thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 14:29, 21 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Rather than translating all that here, couldn't barhide and barshow just be set to mw.message('hidetoc').text() + " ▲" and mw.message('showtoc').text() + " ▼"? --Yair rand (talk) 07:39, 23 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
In theory, you can, but in practice I would prefer putting the messages into the WikimediaIncubator extension and putting those messages into ResourceLoader. One thing though, your implementation will not work for RTL languages, which was why I decided to keep it as part of the string. --Hydriz (talk) 08:32, 23 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
It seems to work fine for RTL... --Yair rand (talk) 15:19, 23 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
The arrow will have to be on the left for RTL... --Hydriz (talk) 02:26, 24 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
This is neat. Thanks, Hydriz. Sj (talk) 00:47, 19 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Help in updating the Kapampangan Wiktionary

I am working on the Kapampangan Language Wiktionary(pam),I am a native in understanding of Kapampangan and Tagalog (Filipino) language.However I have limited knowledge on the tools here like some templates don't work.Interested helping , Let me know. I new here in Wikimedia need collaborators as well. Here are the link.

Thanks in advance.Kixzer (talk) 22:16, 27 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Well, we will be happy to help you, but with what templates exactly do you want help? --MF-W {a, b} 22:46, 27 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks MF-W {a, b} for the reply , I am focus now on the the Wikitionary for our native language. I don't know which format to use in creating articles for Wiktionary. Where do I start? and which template is important for starting a Wiktionary ? --Kixzer (talk) 17:38, 29 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Well, you can start by looking at the entries in existing Wiktionary editions for inspiration. In the beginning you probably don't need many templates, but you can just write text directly. Later when already a number of articles have been created, templates can be created for recurring elements; or for structures on which the editors (i.e. you + hopefully other users) agreed. --MF-W {a, b} 22:58, 30 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Great suggestion MF-W {a, b} I will do just that :) --Kixzer (talk) 18:22, 1 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Help with templates on the kabyle wiktionary


Hello, I need help to add templates to the kabyle wiktionary. I took some templates of the French wiktionary but when I try to integrate them into an article, I get a "script error". Having very little knowledge of programming in Mediawiki, I do not understand where the problem is. Here, for example one of the templates that I have a problem:

This is equivalent to the French template "nom_langue"


Bonjour, j’ai besoin d’aide pour ajouter des modèles au wiktionary kabyle. J’ai repris certains modèles du wiktionary français mais lorsque j’essaye de les intégrer dans un article, je me retrouve avec un « script error ». N’ayant que très peu de connaissances en programmation sous Mediawiki, je n’arrive pas à comprendre d’où vient le problème. Voici par exemple l’un des modèles qui me posent problème : C’est l’équivalent du modèle français : « nom_langue »

--Mmistmurt (talk) 09:19, 7 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Bonjour, la cause du problème c'est que fr:wikt:Template:nom langue utilise une "module" (mw:Extension:Scribunto). On peut voir cela dans le code, "invoke" est le code pour utilizer un de ces "modules" dans une modèle. Si tu veux, je peux essaier d'importer et préfixer le "module" pour "nom langue". --MF-W {a, b} 00:57, 10 February 2014 (UTC) (PS: J'ai répondu en français, mais si tu préfères si je réponde en Anglais, dis ça. Mon Anglais est probablement meilleur que le français ;-) )[reply]
Hello, yes I will, if you can help me it will be with great pleasure. Thank you. --Mmistmurt (talk) 10:46, 10 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry, I had not seen that you already copied some modules. In addition to those, I have now also copied Module:Wt/kab/tutlayin/data, but it still doesn't work. As a next step you could maybe localize the categories in the module (under "b.fait_categorie_contenu") and then one can see what to do then. --MF-W {a, b} 23:30, 11 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]


Hi, I submitted a change to enable VisualEditor here. It won't be enabled by default; you will be able to use it through your preferences (tab "Beta features"). I'm not really familiar with it, but using VisualEditor may be not so easy to use for e.g. adding (prefixed) links. We'll see. Regards, SPQRobin (talk) 01:00, 10 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Need help making templates stay on same line

Greetings. I'm a test-admin of Cantonese Wiktionary and I have a huge favour to ask: Every time I put a few templates on the same line, the second template and all templates after it automatically move to a new line while I want them to stay on the same line. I've tried both & n b s p ; and & # 8 2 0 9 ;, but even the & n b s p ; and & # 8 2 0 9 ; themselves moved to a new line. Can anyone help me solve this problem, please? Big time! 【粵語文學大使殘陽孤侠粵維辭典起錨! 17:30, 31 March 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, could you point to a page which has this problem so we can see it "live"? --MF-W {a, b} 20:45, 31 March 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Yes. Most one-character pages under Category:Wt/yue, like and , have this problem. In some of them, the second template just lost a bit of its formats. In some others, the second template gets kicked to the second line while I want them to stey on the same line. 【粵語文學大使殘陽孤侠粵維辭典起錨! 15:06, 4 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Hm, maybe it's caused by the fact that the transcluded part of templates like Template:Wt/yue/新法蘭西 and Template:Wt/yue/粵拼 ends with newlines and categories, like this:
<end of if-construct>
But that is just a guess. --MF-W {a, b} 00:37, 5 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Uploading existing document

How can I upload to Wikipedia an existing article in pdf format? Joeraab (talk) 17:48, 28 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

If it complies with Wikipedia's license (en:WP:LICENSE), you can upload it on Wikimedia Commons (and then use it also on Incubator). But you can also copy just the text of the article into an actual Wikipedia article (regardless of whether you mean an existing Wikipedia or a test-wiki on Incubator) so that it enriches Wikipedia's content and can be improved by others. --MF-W {a, b} 15:23, 29 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Templates on incubated Wikis

Hi, I'm an editor involved in Wikiproject Medicine's Translation Taskforce, and we are translating to over 100 different languages. Much of our content is being translated to Wikis here on the incubator. To get the translations up and running we need a few templates and modules to be able to cite properly, and we also try to use our infobox when possible. Is there any way to import/invoke these on a specific incubated wiki?

Examples of articles:

fi/hu/ja Wikivoyages

Currently Hungarian and Japanese Wikivoyage (in Incubator) is not active, and data in Wikitravel does not imports here, as Incubator:Wikivoyage import says. I think there may be 2 methods to solve this problem even if we can neither export pages nor uses API in Wikitravel:

  1. Download all page like (1-26582), and construct an XML file using these data (with user names).
  2. Alternatively, only copy latest version of Wikitravel pages to Incubator, And put something like en:Template:Text release in talk page. (that can also be done manually)

Khowar Wikipedia Wp/khw Logo


-- Rehmat Aziz Chitrali 15:39, 2 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

I added it to the request page on Meta. In order to be able to be used in the project-specific logos on Incubator however, it needs to have the proper size of 135px. --MF-W {a, b} 17:40, 2 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
I have uploaded the Khowar Wikipedia logo in large size, please check and add in relevant pages

Finnish Wikivoyage

I think it's not gonna be approved if we have only 1-3 active contributors on Incubator. Thus I'm asking, is it ok to advertise this on the Finnish Wikipedia's village pump to get more (possible interested) editors here? I'm sure many Finnish editors would edit WV when it's on own domain, but many are not so interested to work with this on Incubator. Also, which is more important to get approved: many editors or many pages? As I've seen some users just mass creating almost useless pages here. --Stryn (talk) 19:21, 3 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, that is certainly ok. We have no restriction at all about whether you may advertise Incubator test-projects.
Editors are more important than pages. Just creating one-sentence stubs etc. doesn't help for approval. --MF-W {a, b} 20:21, 3 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
@Stryn: It would be better to have three editors creating quality content than two dozen making stubs which have limited value. —Justin (koavf)TCM 04:46, 4 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

My language is not in the list of languages and test wiki languages

My language is not in the list of languages and test wiki languages but there is a test wiki for it The problem is that I can't create a new article becuase my test wiki language is not chosen

What should I do?

Excuse me for my bad english — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kurdboydm (discussioncontribs).

@Kurdboydm: Your English is good! To other users, his language is w:Gorani_language. Maybe @SPQRobin: can help...? —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:52, 5 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
Gorani is not in the list of languages as there are not enough translations at translatewiki: in Gorani. If enough messages in MediaWiki are translated, then it will appear. Even if it is not in the list of languages, you can still select it for your test-wiki. Ebe123 (Talkabout it|contribs) 17:02, 10 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]
You can create articles regardless of which test-wiki you have set in Special:Preferences. The article title simply needs to start with the prefix "Wp/hac/". --MF-W {a, b} 23:55, 9 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Wikidata API query module

Hi, instead of having MerlIwBot crawl all over incubator to synchronize the explicit interwikilinks with Wikidata records, wouldn't it be better to have a module that a template might pass a Q record number to, and receives the Wikidata information necessary to dynamically create an explicit interwikilinks list? --Mkratz (talk) 01:45, 19 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

User:Mkratz: Maybe it's best if you propose that on d:Wikidata:Contact_the_development_team. --MF-W {a, b} 10:56, 24 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Writing direction and language name are wrong (Wp/aeb)

In Tunisian test wiki It's clear (from the first page) that we are using Latin script, so writing direction would be LTR.. Today, I visited the test wiki and I found that the writing direction become RTL with Eastern Arabic numerals.

For language name, the wrong name is زَوُن and the right name is Tounsi. (I don't know what's the source of the problem)

Thanks --GeekEmad (talk) 15:12, 21 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Is your problem the same one as discussed in phabricator:T70207? --MF-W {a, b} 19:24, 24 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Is wy/eu ready?

Hello! As a way of expanding content on wy/eu we have been discussing the creation of contents in eu:wp Community. We also have this web with easily accesible content published under cc-by-sa so we can add lots of content. But the main problem is that working on Incubator makes more difficult the creation of templates and code we would need to make wikivoyage a great place to encourage more people to edit. So, what could we make to make a definitive version? -Theklan (talk) 22:23, 28 December 2014 (UTC)[reply]

There should be at least 3 regular editors for at least some months (before December 2014, the last activity was in April 2013). --MF-W {a, b} 06:04, 30 December 2014 (UTC)[reply]
