Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T201495: Create a new user right for cross-namespace renames.

@Masumrezarock100 As I said in T201495#5391945, the motivation for this feature request was to benefit non-WMF wikis. If anyone else is interested in pursuing consensus to enable this on a WMF wiki, I wish them the best of luck, but it was never my intention to do so myself. I imagine that by default, the right would be assigned to the same user groups as the current move right is, so by default the addition of this right shouldn't produce any functional change on WMF wikis.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T232714: Wrong subst-if output.

This is documented (not super-clearly) at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Substitution#Predefined_templates:

In the case of substitution of a predefined template, if the expression for one of its parameters contains {{{p|3}}} with undefined p, this code reduces to 3. However, on the page itself, {{{p|3}}} is treated as such, not as 3.
Examples:

  • {{#expr:2*{{{p}}}}} gives Expression error: Unrecognized punctuation character "{".
  • {{#expr:2*{{{p|3}}}}} gives 6
  • {{subst:#expr:2*{{{p|3}}}}} gives Expression error: Unrecognized punctuation character "{".
  • substituting a template containing {{<includeonly>subst:</includeonly>#expr:2*{{{p|3}}}}} gives 6 if p is not assigned a value, and twice the number p if it is assigned a value.
  • the same result can be obtained from a template containing {{{{{subst}}}#expr:2*{{{p|3}}}}}, if the substitution call has a parameter of subst=subst:.

Compare:

  • {{uc:2*{{{p}}}}} gives 2*{{{P}}}
  • {{uc:2*{{{p|q}}}}} gives 2*Q
  • {{subst:uc:2*{{{p|q}}}}} gives the wikitext 2*{{{P|Q}}} rendered as 2*Q

and also (from above):

  • {{subst:UC:{{subst:tc}}}} gives IN, just like {{UC:{{tc}}}} does; UC is applied to the output "in" of Tc.
  • {{subst:UC:{{tc}}}} gives the wikitext {{TC}} rendered as Template:TC.

In the substitution of UC, the inclusion tag {{tc}} is treated as string just like {{{p|q}}}.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T175709: Which tags in MediaWiki should be styled as monospace?.

It seemed to me on rereading the commentary in this task that there was a lot of confusion between MediaWiki's support of the HTML tt tag, and its implementation of the tt wiki markup element, and my comment was addressing that. My impression, of course, could be entirely mistaken, but that's at least where it was coming from, just to be clear.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T175709: Which tags in MediaWiki should be styled as monospace?.

Ignoring the issue of styling, kbd has specific semantic meaning (keyboard input) that tt does not, so it's not accurate and is in fact potentially harmful to declare that kbd is an alternative to tt - this is only true in certain cases. The same applies to samp and var. (It also actually applies to code, though I don't know in practice how many people care enough to only present source code using code, and use span for other things.)

I would say so, yes. There is still no functionality that allows sites to restrict cross-namespace renames at their discretion. However, if you're asking specifically in the context of WMF wikis, I can't say anything, since the original motivation for me filing this task was to benefit non-WMF wikis.

Jul 30 2019, 4:07 AM · TechCom, MediaWiki-General
Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T226657: Add a mechanism to determine if a namespace is a default MW namespace.

Why 90? The convention is to start extension namespaces at 100.

Because of LiquidThreads:
https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-LiquidThreads/blob/b8f8d6ac918c69ad35071cf878568da33df1f7a4/extension.json#L15-L36

It would be much better to have the definitive list of core namespaces defined in code. It's currently hard coded in Setup.php for initializing $wgCanonicalNamespaceNames, but $wgCanonicalNamespaceNames then gets modified to include extension namespaces as well. That logic should probably move from Setup.php into NamespaceInfo.php. That would break any code that relies on the $wgCanonicalNamespaceNames global directly (or via a Config object), but at least in core, I see no such code.

That seems like a good solution to me.

Dinoguy1000 updated subscribers of T207977: deprecate Language::viewPrevNext.

@CCicalese_WMF Any ideas on who could do the SMW patch? I mean, the fix itself is trivial (change MessageBuilder::prevNextToText to do the same thing as IndexPage::buildPrevNextNavigation now does), but fixing the test needs a little more work, and running the test means I'd have to install SMW :)

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T225565: 2016 MW cached data ? (Special pages>Maintenance reports).

the scripts just haven't been run on WikiApiary for a few years, probably because very few people are using the reports there.

That seems a bit of an odd argument to me in this case. If there not updated/maintained, that in itself effectively undermines any interest/motivation in using them (any user, new or old).

Aah, I wasn't trying to imply it was complicated to do; sorry if that's what it sounded like. Rather, I was just trying to say that this is a relatively low-visibility issue, and that people's attentions have largely been focused elsewhere.

The reports haven't been generated since 2016, which is why the specialpages say as much. Generating these reports is an expensive operation, so many wikis disable automatic generation and instead periodically run maintenance scripts to regenerate them; the scripts just haven't been run on WikiApiary for a few years, probably because very few people are using the reports there, and there've been bigger problems to resolve.

Well, I didn't actually save anything, so at this time there isn't anything to revert to. =) I think it won't take nearly as much time and effort to redo the work the second time around, though.

What a shame. This would have saved some time. Still, you learned something which still lies ahead for me.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T200528: Fix template Template:General_siteinfo and also update.

According to the I18nTags extension's documentation, the native codeword causes #languagename to output the language's autonym (e.g. français for French), and outputting in the wiki's content language is achieved by not supplying any second parameter. The autonym behavior can be replicated with #language without any second parameter, and the content-language output behavior could be replicated with something like {{ #language: ... | {{CONTENTLANGUAGE}} }} (though given most wikis don't regularly change their content language,[citation needed] that's probably unnecessary =) ).

I'd already migrated all uses of #languagename that I could find to #language when I left that comment, so unless there's some other functionality of the I18nTags extension that WikiApiary relies on, it doesn't need to be reinstalled (the CLDR extension does regardless, though).

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T212475: Upgrade WikiApiary to foreground version 2.x.

After spending a half hour trying and failing to get the new syntax to work, I checked, and it turns out WikiApiary is still on Foreground 1.2.0. And checking some of the old revisions of the Tabs page on the Foreground wiki, it appears the old syntax doesn't function in Foreground 2.x.x (all tab names and content are just displayed, simultaneously, as plaintext).

Would it be unacceptable to expand the "Warn me when I leave an edit page with unsaved changes" preference to also cover this case? That would make it opt-in, at least.

This task has been open for three weeks, and no one's come forward with such a reason yet. I'm inclined to just get the change done and see if someone complains.

I have no idea who created the form, and Phabricator doesn't seem to provide any simple method to check a form's history. IIRC @Aklapper has edited the form for us in the past when we've needed changes made (though correct me if I'm wrong). More generally, it would probably be best to get one of us set up with the permission to edit the form, but I have no idea what that would entail.
