I mostly fixed the refToolbar gadget on French Wikipedia, but it still seems to have a couple bugs. The bugs don't seem to be related to the ResourceLoader change though.

I fixed:

  • MediaWiki:Gadget-QPreview.js
  • MediaWiki:Gadget-CaracteresHTML.js
  • MediaWiki:Gadget-CaracteresMagic.js
  • MediaWiki:Gadget-CaracteresParser.js

@Arkanosis: As far as I can tell, it looks like refToolbar never actually worked on French Wikipedia. refToolbar assumes that template parameters do not include spaces (as they are reused as ids), but template parameters on French Wikipedia commonly do include spaces, which breaks refToolbar. Can you confirm whether or not refToolbar has always been broken?

Fixed SpecialChars gadget.

That's quite possible actually. Looking at the history, it could have been an experiment by Trizek. Anyway, I don' know.

@Trizek : maybe you can tell us if this gadget is expected to work as of today or not. Thanks ;-)

Thanks to all of you for your help, btw :)

refToolbar never worked. I've planed to improve it, but I never did.

Assessment for prioritization:

Support: Medium (we can probably assume that a fair number of people want these gadgets to work)
Feasibility: High (looks like there are only 10 that are still broken)
Impact: Medium (only 1 wiki, but a major language)
Risk: Low

Priority: Normal
