Thanks for successfully adding the sandbox link to SWWP. However, it still reads in English 'sandbox' instead of "ukurasa wa majaribio." I was asked to translate the term at Translatewiki, but still the shows the same English word. Please help!

Adding @Muddyb, who is a native Swahili speaker, and could potentially be interested and shed some light on this.

Citoid is not set up on your wiki, which is why it does not work. There is work you will need to do to get it set up. You may find the instructions on how to enable Citoid on your wiki helpful. @Mvolz may also be able to help you, time permitting.

:Thanks for the info. Dear @Mvolz kindly help me out fixing the problem whenever you are ready. I've tried to follow some instructions on CITOID but wasn't successful. I ended up importing a bunch of templates from English Wikipedia, yet the problem still exists.

Do you have any native citation templates? Those can be used as well.

The main reason the imported citation templates don't work yet is they don't have any templatedata, see: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:TemplateData

Hello back! I have created it https://sw.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kigezo:TemplateData still the problem persist. And would please be so kind explain to me a bit about the NATIVE TEMPLATE? How to go about it? See it here: https://sw.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picha:Error_report_on_adding_citation_on_the_SWWP.png

You don't need a Template called template data (that page can be deleted), you need to add a special text called "template data" to all the templates you wish to use. I've added some to Template:Citation here: https://sw.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kigezo:Citation/hati&action=history

It's the bit that starts <templatedata> and ends </templatedata>

By "native templates" I mean citation templates that were not imported from English wiki. You do not NEED them if you don't already have them, the English wiki ones will work! But many wikis that already have their own citation templates prefer to use the ones they have already so I wanted to check first. It looks like sw wiki does not have any.

Template:Citation is basically done, unless you wish to translate the "label" and "description" into Swahili - of course it's a lot of work! Now if you go to https://sw.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Kigezo:Citation/hati&action=edit you will now see a button that says "Manage TemplateData" at the top you can click on the parameters to translate the "label" and "description".

I've reenabled it now that the template data has been added, please test it out!

Hi @Muddyb, thanks for taking the time to report this and welcome to Wikimedia Phabricator!
It took me a while to realize that this seems to be about VisualEditor as the Editor being used. For future reference, please follow https://mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug and provide clear steps (click by click) to reproduce the problem. Thanks!
