There already is effectively a parser function registry, it's just in Parser itself.

Forwarding will work indefinitely because there's over 13 years' worth of random linkage from elsewhere on the internet to wikia.com (note that the original domain name wikicities.com still redirects to Wikia/FANDOM's home page, even though that name/domain hasn't been used for almost 12 years now). This isn't an argument for proper support in AWB, mind, it's just pointing out that things will (should) continue to work until it's added.

Not all Wikia wikis are moving to fandom.com, and for the wikis that do move, wikia.com will continue to work as a redirect probably indefinitely. So while baked-in support would definitely be nice, it shouldn't be needed for things to continue working unless I've missed/misunderstood something (which is definitely possible).

Hi! This sounds a lot like the issues that happen when trying to connect older versions of AWB (anything 5.x.x.x or earlier) to wikis that don't support older ciphers/protocols. The first thing to try here is to install AWB 6.0.0.x and attempt to connect to the wiki again; note that the AWB 6.x.x.x versions are not currently offered by the upgrader, so they must be downloaded and installed manually.

It would probably be more useful to have a list of all observed extension versions, ordered newest to oldest (as far as can be auto-determined). Yes, I'm aware this information is already tracked after a fashion, but having a single collected list (that maybe includes versions no longer observed in the wild) would be useful in its own right.

@ShakespeareFan00 I have properly converted the template to use divs. While the appearance now is not pixel-for-pixel identical with the table-based template, I did attempt to match it as closely as reasonable; no one should notice the difference unless they are looking for it specifically. In the future, please be willing to ask for help before you decide that something can't be done.

If by "you" you mean "me, Dinoguy1000", then you need to keep in mind that not every commentator on Phabricator is a MediaWiki developer; personally, I have never directly contributed to the MediaWiki software, and don't understand any relevant programming languages well enough to do so competently. If you just meant in general, then there is definitely a ticket floating around already for list items to properly support multiline content, and the reason it hasn't been done yet is because it's a relatively minor feature request, developer time is limited, etc. etc.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T212509: List incorrectly terminated when multiline <div> or table embedded inside it.

For starters, the table in Template:request box should be converted to nested divs. For the actual issue here, the newlines in the source of that template are probably what's causing the behavior here, but the current markup will not work if they are removed; either the table would have to be converted to use HTML-style tags, or (as I already suggested, and definitely recommend) the table would have to be replaced with a div-based design.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T212453: Allow to explicity call certain function when multiple extensions define the same function (conflicting function names).

The #mediawiki-extensions-parserfunctions project is specifically about Extension:ParserFunctions, which only defines the #if, #ifeq, #switch, etc. parser functions; the extension (and thus its project) doesn't have anything to do with parser functions defined by other extensions. The correct project for a cross-extension request is MediaWiki-extensions-General, which I have changed this task to.

Unfortunately with the current display problems on WikiApiary, I can't properly investigate this, though the code pointed to here doesn't look broken to me (no obvious syntax errors, all brackets are properly matched, etc.).

UIAM the WMF would want to keep the original file(s) as well, so that when the HEIF patents expire it could be made available, but there is currently no support for that type of file stashing in the software (see T120454).

We're currently on 2.0.1 (db756c7). @corey can you try bumping our version?

It is possible with a module. I find it unlikely the developers are going to enable this behavior with any pure-wikitext method given that.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T211371: uc/lcfirst: magic word should work with link titles.

The current behavior of these functions is very straightforward: to change the case of the first character in the string passed to them (therefore, previewing {{ucfirst:[[test]]} renders as "test", not as "Test", because the first character is the first [, not the t). Changing the behavior of these functions to be link-aware would require changing at what point in the parse process they are applied, and would probably be extremely difficult to do without introducing a wide array of bugs and unintended behaviors, in addition to potentially breaking lots of current usage that relies on the current behavior. The best solution for this is to change your use case so the functions are being applied directly to the text you want to modify - i.e. [[Linked page|{{ucfirst:link title}}]].

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T210822: Reconsider section heading marker ("→") in edit summaries.

Back to the originally opening question.

  • With the most recent change, the arrow is not a blue link any longer, nor is the TOC headline in blue as it has been for a few weeks. Now it is hard for newbies and not frequently visiting users to learn that this grey thing is a clickable link.
  • The only clue they get now is the arrow.
  • The arrow (or similar simply accessible sign) is necessary now to give at least a hint to this type of link markup differing from any other clickable link.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T210475: User should not be allowed to edit user talk page if checkbox is enabled (partial blocks).

The OP specifically calls for a user to be blocked from their UTP if the UTP block box is not checked, but they are partial-blocked from the User_talk namespace. However, a cursory reading of @dbarratt's patchset suggests the box will take precedence in this case. It seems counterintuitive to me that a User_talk namespace partial block should prevent a user from editing their own UTP even when the UTP box isn't checked; having the box override all other behavior also matches its current functionality IRT sitewide blocks. What is the actual preferred behavior here?
