Enabling Citoid on GA Wikipedia (Vicipéid)
Open, NormalPublic


Through various workshops, the lack of Citoid on GA has been flagged as a barrier to editing for new and existing editors. I have a number of Irish speakers who can assist in translation, but we would like to begin the process of implementing Citoid on Vicipéid.

That's great!

We have some directions on how to do that here:


Are there any citation templates on ga wiki? I had a look and I couldn't find any.

I think your best bet to start with is to import https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Citation and then translate that template. Is there any one of you that has import rights that can do that?

Thank you very much! I don't think there are any citation templates on GA.

I don't have import rights, but I can check in with some other GA editors to see if anyone can do it.

Could you please explain what is wanted from Community-Liaisons here as this project was added? Thanks!

Deskana moved this task from To Triage to External and Administrivia on the VisualEditor board.

At the moment there is no tool to insert citation in source editor, and a similar lack of a code generating tool in the visual editor. At the moment editors tend to generate the code in an EN page and then copy paste over. Anything that could help in generating the code to create citations on GA would be a huge improvement. There is also no way of reusing a citation.

It makes editing cumbersome as well as that bit more difficult for newer editors.
