Expand toggles in message documentation are inactive when linking to a message directly
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG REPORT


Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:

  • The boxes are closed and cannot be opened (the toggles are inactive).

Expected Results:

  • The box toggles work.



on the browser console fixes the problem; something like this should be added in the extension’s JS.

Additional note: This seems to happen only when linking to a message directly and not when traversing via the translation list.

75-                                     $( '.mw-identical-title' ).makeCollapsible();

Maybe this needs to be replaced with the hook? And figure out why it isn't always working.

Sorry, I didn’t check every situation. After some more testing (and using the source look), it’s obvious what happens: {{Identical}} works, because it has mw-identical-title class, but {{Related}} doesn’t (in no case, regardless of how the user got there), because its class is mw-related-title. I think relying on on-wiki classes or any other user-generated content is a Very Bad Thing, and should be avoided if possible. (For example it at least partly works on translatewiki, but doesn’t work at all on WMF wikis.) Here it seems possible with the MediaWiki hook, to which $messageDesc from line 63 can be passed. (I haven’t tested it on a local MediaWiki install, only using the browser console on translatewiki and Commons, where I used $messageDesc = $( '.infocolumn-block .message-desc' ). It’s not the same, but pretty similar, so I think it should work with the code in the extension’s module as well.)

[mediawiki/extensions/Translate@master] TUX: Use mw.hook( 'wikipage.content' ) for message documentation

Change 583039 merged by jenkins-bot:
[mediawiki/extensions/Translate@master] TUX: Use mw.hook( 'wikipage.content' ) for message documentation

This has been deployed to and can be tested there.

For example, here on the yellow background color is [expand these messages] link generated by Template:Identical, which should always work after this fix.
