Enable VisualEditor by default on wikitech.wikimedia.org
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/ does not have VisualEditor/Parsoid enabled yet. Would be nice to have it turned on by default for everyone.

Currently one has to check a box in its user preferences under 'editing'.

Yes it does...

Maybe it needs to be turned on for more namespaces? Help: and Nova_resource maybe?

It's already enabled in Help... I think we could add it to Nova_Resource if you'd like to open another ticket for that.

Might be just me, but when I go to https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Deployments I don't have a way to edit with VE, the edit link points to the source edit.

I looked at my preferences, there is nothing proposing to enable VE.

Preferences -> Editing -> "Enable VisualEditor. It will be available in the following namespaces: Ops, (Main), User, User, File, Help, Category"
I should probably fix that double-User thing.

@Krenair thank you very much! it is a well hidden option :-) Maybe on wikitech we can drop that user preference and always enable VE?

I would like to keep using classic editor if possible please.

VE doesn't disable the 'classic' wikitext editor. Or the WikiEditor extension we use on Wikimedia sites.

Enabling VE does not disable source editing. At the top of the pages you will simply have two links: edit and edit source.
