Translate extension not working on Meta
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It currently doesn't seem possible to translate anything on Meta. The drop-down menu to pick a language to translate to doesn't react when clicked on; when you navigate to a a specific language the message just isn't there. This includes when going to page that is fully translated to Swedish, clicking translate and ending up on the Swedish translation, which exists on the page but doesn't turn up in the translation tool.

A few notes:

  • This was first reported by another translator, I'm merely replicating.
  • Not a browser issue: tested in both Firefox and Safari.
  • It works on mediawiki.org.

I'm having issues with Notifications on Meta (and not on other wikis) where the drop down doesn't come (instead it goes to Special:Notifications and hangs/fails. I'm wondering if there is a larger javascript issue on Meta which is causing it.

Meta is currently under script error. The error is Uncaught Error: Unknown dependency: mw.geoIP

These both seem to be working now, not sure exactly what happened but I'm at least a bit nervous that it was me a couple hours ago :( ( in an attempt to fix some issues with a gadget I tried to set a dependency to solve a race condition https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition&diff=16752348&oldid=16751393 ). Still don't think it "should" have caused everything else to fail but wouldn't be the most surprising thing.

Yup, that would be me :( I removed this about 20 minutes ago and they seem to be fixed now.
