I don't want deployment of TemplateStyles to be a moving target—as it has been for many months—so I'm going to stick to the plan to deploy to only svwiki as the first phase. That will be done some time after T176268 and T176269 are complete.

Deskana added a comment to T178248: Move visual diff out of beta in visual and 2017 wikitext editors.

Here's some additional context I evidently forgot to add:

  1. @dchen did some evaluative research which showed users have a preference for the visual diff layout and that it better helps them understand their changes. The research is documented on mediawiki.org.
  2. Visual diffs will only be moved out of beta in the visual and 2017 wikitext editors. Visual diffs remain unavailable in the 2010 wikitext editor, so the older wikitext diffs system will remain the default for that editor.
  3. Per T178691, the user's previous choice of diff mode will be remembered automatically from edit to edit, so if a user prefers one diff mode over the other then that users will be presented with that diff mode by default.

This is a very complex area, and I don't know which part of the workflow you're referring to. Are you talking about the keyboard shortcut that opens the save dialogue, or the keyboard shortcut that saves once that dialogue is open? What was the shortcut for you before before, and what is it now? What browser and operating system are you using?

The visual editor supports translatable pages to some degree, and it has improved in the 18 months since this task was filed. Translation in the visual editor is still clunky and confusing, but to be fair it's also clunky and confusing in wikitext. I think visual editor works well enough with translation that disabling it on translated pages is not necessary.

I've spent hours investigating this now. Every time I thought I'd figured it out, and it turned out I was wrong. I think I've finally figured it out, but I've been wrong so many times in the past few hours that I now doubt everything.

@atgo Sorry about this. I think this was fixed as part of T183590. The fix for that should be going live on Meta-Wiki tomorrow at around 2pm (Pacific).

Deskana lowered the priority of T183590: Multi-part templates are rendered backwards and have a slug inside them from Unbreak Now! to High.

Given this merge, this should go out with the train this week, but also given this is an UBN!, should this be swatted to all wikis? @Catrope / @Deskana

It would be helpful to get clear steps to reproduce this problem before we start deciding where the blame lies. That's the first step.
