Hi @Hardarshan2207, thanks for taking the time to report this and welcome to Wikimedia Phabricator!

I'm removing the All-and-every-Wikisource tag, see and I'm resetting the assignee, see

@Hardarshan2207: I assume this is about (please always include clear steps to reproduce including links, see ). Where exactly to see a header / footer? How would a header / footer look like? Please see and provide 1) steps to reproduce, 2) what exactly you expect, 3) what happens instead. Thanks!

@Aklapper Sorry for that this is my first request.
Follow the steps now-

  1. Go to
  2. Make sure you are logged in.
  3. Click on ਤਰਜੀਹਾਂ(Preferences)
  4. Now click on ਸੋਧ ਜਾਰੀ(Editing)
  5. Tick this option 'Page ਨਾਮਸਥਾਨ ਵਿੱਚ ਹੈਡਰ ਅਤੇ ਫ਼ੁਟਰ ਦੀ ਜਗ੍ਹਾ ਦਿਖਾਓ'(Show header and footer fields toggle the visibility of the noinclude header and footer sections when editing in the Page namespace)

I want this option always ticked for every user

Someone (you or anybody interested) could write a software patch for the operations/mediawiki-config code repository with a one-line change in the file InitialiseSettings.php.

I want this option always ticked for every user
