Add CW#557: Detect missing space before internal link
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I noticed that on some articles when something like goalkeeper[[1910 Copa del Rey]] the program does not suggest any spacing so it would appear like "goalkeeper 1910 Copa del Rey". Is there a way to have the program do this, or a code or something I can use to do this with?

@NicoV responded with “ Hi Bakertheacre. Currently, there's nothing for such cases. One way would be to add a dedicated algorithm to detect text before an internal link. If you're interested, please open a Phabricator task. --NicoV (Talk on frwiki) 1:36 am, Today (UTC−7)”

@Bakertheacre It will be implemented as error #557.

Currently, it's generating too many false positives to activate it by default for everyone, so if you want to test it, you need to activate it only for yourself: you need to configure it in User:Bakertheacre/WikiCleanerConfiguration. You have an example at User:WikiCleanerBot/WikiCleanerConfiguration, it's the line error_557_bot_enwiki=true END.

The version with this new error is not released yet. Once it's released, you can try it to see what false positives you get.

Hi @NicoV I did what you said and I copied the code over to my page. When I run WPCleaner, I don't see any of the numbers listed. Is there something special I need to do so it comes up? Thanks.

For these errors, there are no lists, except for the ones I've generated (see the subpages of WPC all). You only see them when you edit a page with such an error: try creating an error in a page to see if it's detected

Hi @NicoV I did a test on a mainspace article and it found. Here is the link to the image file{F31947955}. Looks like it would be a manual edit at this point instead of a suggestion on right click to add the whitespace.

I've added some suggestions, it will be available in the next release.

Many false positives, need to find ways to ignore them: list of possible prefixes, #REDIRECT...

I've modified WPCleaner to use a configurable list of allowed prefixes.
I've done an initial configuration, feel free to add other prefixes.

I'm currently testing automatic fixing of some cases on frwiki :

  • ab[[Abcde|cde]] replaced by [[abcde]]
  • xx[[yyyy| zzzz]] replaced by xx [[yyyy|zzzz]]
  • xx[[ yyyy]] replaced by xx [[yyyy]]
  • xx[[yyyy|'zzzz]] replaced by xx'[[yyyy|zzzz]]
