Could you enable the visual editor on the "Projet" namespace? It will be really helpful for editing table. Thanks in advance

@Pamputt Currently, deployments are overseen by the Editing team at WMF Product. They would like to restrict VE to namespaces:

  • without any local village pump
  • without complex wiki markup

Did you assert your namespace Project: to match these two conditions?

Change 336347 had a related patch set uploaded (by Dereckson):
Enable VE on fr.wiktionary Projet: namespace

@Dereckson I guess so but maybe @Automatik could give a more reliable answer, especially for the second bullet.

Depends what you mean by "complex wiki markup". Most project pages use basic wiki syntax (e.g. tables), with very few templates.

Though this request for Visual Editor came to be because of a new special project that uses some wikitables, with divs hidden via mw-collapsible. Nothing much else (i.e. no templates). See this page as an example: The manipulations that users should be able to do are simple: alter the content of the rows.

So I'd say point #2 should not be an issue.

As for point #1, the Village Pump is in another namespace (Wiktionnaire:).

Thanks for the clarification. Very good, that seems to answer the general preoccupations of the Editing team.
