New parsers are a disaster for French Wikiquote
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I'm bureaucrat on French Wikiquote. The new parser enabled yesterday is a disaster for our projet. We use templates for sourcing quotes, and all parser codes are broken.

See by example

Impossible to fix templates.

Version: unspecified
Severity: critical



Event Timeline

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Unbreak Now!.Nov 21 2014, 10:05 PM
bzimport added a project: MediaWiki-Parser.
bzimport set Reference to bz13113.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

I have had a brief look at that, templates are pretty fixable, they just use hacks from old parser they shouldn't use. I was just unable to deal with it because of protection.

Kalan has taken care of that nicely. Marking as FIXED.

Kalan has indeed fixed it for {{Réf Livre}}, but there are several others templates not yet fixed (see my message on for complete list). I have unprotected all of these templates until the problem is completely fixed. I'd gladly do it myself, but I don't really understand Kalan's edits :-)

Another problem : we can't unprotect theses templates. We must delete and undelete them.

After several attempts, it is finally fixed. It's not perfect, but it works. Marking as FIXED.
