Pols12 added a comment to T347156: Transfer history and revision information when moving translatable bundles between wikis.

I see translationPages being exported by the script, so I am confused why they aren't imported. Is that a bug, @abi_?

My guess is that permission restrictions that we have in place to not allow translation pages to be created by users is blocking the creation of the translation page during import.

Pols12 added a comment to T358553: Have numbers next to images on Special:ListFiles.

Page number is the only index for pages in books; whereas in the file list, each file is indexed per its file name. You may also refer to a given file thanks to its date.
To describe a use case, a story is often better; e.g. “While reviewing all files from a specific user opening them in new browser tabs, I would like them to be numbered, so I can easier remember the last file I have open.”
You can’t say “sometimes it is useful to have numbers”, we need to explicit “sometimes” with a precise story.

I tested this locally just now and I can't reproduce the problem. If you still see it, it would be helpful if you could link to the specific pages and topics where it didn't work as expected.

Also, please check whether the automatic subscription status appears after you refresh the page – Ed and I were wondering in T360942/T360863 whether the problem is that the subscription is added, but the page is not updated to show it.

Pols12 added a comment to T136014: If there is no more translated unit, translation page should be deleted on unit deletion..

Note: if you mark a page for translation with 0 unit (empty translate tag pair, and disabled Page display title translation), this will remove translation pages with the reason Part of translation page "<source_page>": Page no longer has any translations (example). That breaks transclusion of the page, since that removes subpage in source language.

An heuristics can add a proper markup in most cases (lists, headings…). I see two exceptions:

  • Images: some textual image may want to be fully replaced, whereas we only want to translate the captions for pictures.
  • Some Template parameters are string constants (no localization expected), whereas other one are literal content which should be translated. We could use templateData (string vs content parameter types), but those are rarely well provided.

Pols12 added a comment to T354494: Can’t discard changes after showing changes.

This could be done for both live and non-live preview, and although it means a sort-of unnecessary page load in the case of live preview I think it might still actually be better because it'd return the form to the initial state.

If we can’t force Live preview, I think we should try to keep such “live discarding” when Live preview is enabled: the UI is much more user-friendly than a page reload. I don’t know how complex it is to guess whether Live preview is enabled, though.

I completed the review and fix for the 135 templateStyles sheet on Meta-Wiki which contain a h# selector.
In most cases, I could simply replace h2 with .mw-heading2, however there are two main issues:

  • color property is not inherited by h2.
  • If the style sheet is used both on Main namespace and on specific namespaces (e.g. Grant: or Research:), the inconsistency (wrapper or not) makes maintenance really painful.

Pols12 added a comment to T13555: .mw-editsection links should not be part of the <h#> element.

Hi, on frwiki homepage (permalink), I noticed there is an element in the wikicode that doesn't get converted to the new markup: <h2 style="margin-top:1.5rem">. When removing the style="margin-top:1.5rem", the element gets converted, as the other <h2>'s of the page.

Is it intentional that the markup change is avoided in this case? (I don't think so, as ultimately the old markup is expected to be found nowhere)

And how should MediaWiki handle such case (i.e. what to do with the style attribute)?

The recommended fix is providing schema:name at home page.

Since our root URIs return HTTP 301 (moved permanently), I don’t know whether we can use the redirection target to place schema properties.

What do you mean with “more sensibly”? I can still reproduce the visual issue described in initial report.

Pols12 added a project to T352846: Delay in creation or editing of translation pages: Performance Issue.

Job lag similar to T318484: a big job execution time which causes unexpected delay between translation editing and them to be visible:
132 minutes between translation unit update and translation page update.

Pols12 added a comment to T52881: VisualEditor: Link input widget should suggest section links.

Really nice UX! 🙂
Some minor limitations I noted:

  • Added/edited headings in the current editing session are not reachable.
  • Since selecting the target page with directional keys does not fill the text input (what a browser URL bar usually does), in order to link an external section without fully typing the target page name, you have to first add a link to the page name, then edit it to add the fragment.
  • For local page section suggestions, a middle click opens the page in visual editing mode rather than reading mode like for external sections.
  • It does not recognize underscore as space equivalent; so copying the fragment from a URL looks like it is not an existing section.
  • For local sections, the resulting wikitext uselessly adds page name before fragment. (T239847)

Pols12 added a comment to T153306: Have Show preview and Review your changes more directly accessible in the New Wikitext Editor.

In provided patchDemo, in visual mode, “Show preview” button is visible but disabled. That seems me counterproductive.
In my opinion, we should:

  • remove it to make the interface lighter;
  • or keeping it enabled, to let users display a real preview which is actually (but unfortunately) different from visual editor rendering because of legacy parser, slugs, new French armories…
