Aklapper renamed this task from book2scroll is not working for Bengali Wikisource to book2scroll is not working (due to jquery 404?).Sep 26 2018, 5:40 PM
Aklapper added a project: Tools.

I have fixed the jQuery issue, but the underlying problem is that this code is very old (as in Toolserver-old), and only works with some site naming schemes. Other languages don't work either for many titles.

I get SyntaxError: unexpected token: identifier for any and every language nowadays.

Because toolforge forgot the replica.conf again, see T166949. Webservice restarted, manually, yet again, works. For the next few minutes, probably.

@Magnus Could you also enable it for zhwikisource? Thanks.
