Enable Visual Editor on all namespaces of Polish Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


Currently VE is enabled in most namespaces on Polish Wikipedia, but not all of them. Most importantly it's unavailable in the Wikipedia: namespace. Yet that's where our School and university projects are located (and where users often need to sign up or train, or copy some content to their sandbox, or copy over a citation template prepared in advance for people taking part in an Editathon).

As the namespace is also used by our village pump (Kawiarenka) and AfD (Poczekalnia), that is pages where people discuss, vote and need to be able to sign up, it would be beneficial to simultaneously fix T133978.

We held a discussion in our village pump and the result of the voting was 8:2 in favour of the proposed change.

I'll do it with T133978.

@Halibutt I am not sure if you want to enable VE on really all namespaces (including MediaWiki: and Template:).

  • Talk pages

Is this ok or should we modify this setting?

You're welcome :)

Yeah, that's what I had in mind. :)

Personally I would love to see VE work on talk pages as well since we can't have Flow, but I guess it was never meant to work there. EOT

Technically is possible to enable VE in every namespace you want even if it's talk namespace. But if it wasn't discussed, i think that we should enable VE only in non-talk NS. When I'll be home (about 21:00 CEST), I'll send this patch to review and I'll schedule it for Monday 17:00-18:00 CEST.
