Let's move VisualEditor's 2017 wikitext mode out of Beta Features on office.wiki. Users should still be able to opt-out if they want, from the regular Special:Preferences section.
|operations/mediawiki-config||master||+1 -0||2017 wikitext editor: Enable by default on officewiki|
|Resolved||Jdforrester-WMF||T188028 Deploy the 2017 wikitext mode as the default editing environment for all users at office.wiki|
|Resolved||Jdforrester-WMF||T150578 Create a config option to enable NWE by default|
For anyone writing documentation or trying to find out what it looks like, the system message in Prefs can be seen at [[MediaWiki:Visualeditor-preference-newwikitexteditor-enable]] ("Use the wikitext mode inside the visual editor, instead of a different wikitext editor." in English).
In your editing preferences, deselect "Use the wikitext mode inside the visual editor, instead of a different wikitext editor."
I'd appreciate your feedback on why you are disabling it, if you could give it. Is there something that isn't working, or could work better? :-)
Thanks, that did it.
I find the traditional mode easier to use and less distracting.
I don't get all the icons around it, it doesn't have the loading progress bar at the beginning because it doesn't need scripts and it's more obvious to me when i'm actually in edit mode.
