According to the code (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/diffusion/EVED/browse/master/modules/ve-mw/ui/dialogs/ve.ui.MWSaveDialog.js;5330e42dc7ae09abf505a2494e22c6e1768331ad$277) this only happens on pages without categories, but when it happens it is really annoying.

If somebody comes here because he like me wants to use the same editor for all edits, https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer:Schnark/js/veCode.js enables NWE for JS/CSS, too. A documentation (German only, sorry) is on https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benutzer:Schnark/js/veCode.

Does the above patch also address the issue in visual diffs? E.g. in https://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Benutzer:Schnark/js&diff=prev&oldid=177332168&diffmode=visual the table is currently broken and even though I didn't test, I think the patch only fixes this for editing, not in diff.

Schnark added a comment to T194122: Cursor position sometimes gets lost when switching from temporary wikitext editor to final editor.

The best way to avoid this bug seems to be to try to reproduce it ...

I think it is something that happens after https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/g/mediawiki/extensions/VisualEditor/+/master/modules/ve-mw/init/targets/ve.init.mw.DesktopArticleTarget.init.js#147, but before https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/g/mediawiki/extensions/VisualEditor/+/master/modules/ve-mw/init/targets/ve.init.mw.DesktopArticleTarget.js#469. It's obvious that any cursor change between these two points will be ignored, but I have no idea how much time there is between them.

I also have "search as you type" enabled in Firefox, so when I type something while the temporary editor is read-only, this will invoke the search, and so moves the focus. So this setting might have something to do with this issue.

In the first call you link to we do tempWikitextEditor.$element.prop( 'readonly', true ); which means no more input is allowed. (I note that in Firefox you can still move the cursor, but that would manifest as a different issue).

Tue, May 8, 7:21 AM · MonoBook, MediaWiki-Page-editing

Mon, May 7

Schnark added a comment to T171437: Allow easily extending the diff mode switcher in page history.

Actually, due to the fact that my script supports 4 modes (diff while editing in VE, diff while editing in OWE, historical diff without VisualDiff, and historical diff including VisualDiff), but can combine the last 3 into one function, I'm not so sure, whether I'd actually any advanced features to extend the VisualDiff for historical diffs, as this would just force me to maintain 3 ways instead of 2.
So I think the only issues worth considering are:

  • The ButtonSelectWidget for switching the mode should be accessible from scripts (which would allow me to interact with it without triggering simulated click events).
  • The code that enforces a valid mode (line 19ff) should allow me to specify my own mode. Currently, when I add diffmode=schnark to the URL (which would be handled by my script), the code will reset it to source and also adapt the URL before I have a chance to react to that URL parameter.

After a quick search, I'd blame https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-iwcore.js on this, wgLangNames[ conf.wgUserLanguage ] breaks when wgLangNames is undefined. That variable is defined at the bottom of the script, but only when the user's language is ru. So when this gadget is enabled, I expect things to break for any language other then Russian, and nothing specific to the pseudo langauge qqx.

Looking at the screenshot, the problem isn't with word-wrap, but with hyphens. So the value should be reset to manual or none, to make it match the overlay (though setting this to auto on editable content seems bad anyway).

Schnark added a comment to T190505: Floating templates aren't clearly indicated as inserted in visual diffs.

(the little green box only appears on Firefox and not Chrome, clearly this is a rendering bug in one of them but I'm not sure which)

Strange, I don't have a Chrome here, but Vivaldi, and the difference between Vivaldi and Firefox is that the box is 0px*0px in Vivaldi, and 0px*17px in Firefox. Forcing the dimensions of the other browser makes the display the same for both variants. https://www.w3.org/TR/css3-box/ is an awefull mess, so https://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/current-work links to CSS 2.1, which in https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visudet.html#inline-non-replaced says: "The height of the content area should be based on the font, but this specification does not specify how." So I think that both Firefox and Vivaldi are currently correct, even if they differ in the height and thus in the display. But it is strange that Chrome has different dimensions than Vivaldi, and a different display than Firefox.

Schnark added a comment to T187116: In the "Page Settings" menu, "This is a disambiguation page" is not adequately explained to the user.

I am simply unconvinced by the need for featuring prominently something that isn't the only, or even the main, way to make a disambiguation page: it seems like a recipe to get some users unknowingly in trouble. Someone else will likely have to "clean up" after them for using code that isn't necessary, or could shout at them for not using the template as they "should have done", if you know what I mean :)

Schnark added a comment to T86794: <blockquote> tags on different line from content of blockquote results alienated content.

Related: When you change the format of several consecutive paragraphs to blockquote in VE, every single paragraph will be wrapped into <blockquote> and stripped the linebreaks, while it is probably desired to wrap them into one <blockquote> only.
Also note that the PHP parser will add <p> tags even for <blockquotes> without linebreaks.

Blockquote diffs usually work as expected (both during editing and in historic diffs): https://de.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/w/index.php?title=Benutzer:Schnark/Test&type=revision&diff=21973&oldid=21972&diffmode=visual&visualdiff=1

Schnark added a comment to T187613: Historic visual diff displays change completely unrelated to actual change.

The fact that it isn't showing the blockquote diff is a separate issue. It seems blockquotes aren't even editable in visual editor, so it makes sense that the in-editor diff doesn't handle them.

Schnark added a comment to T160372: Link "View or restore x deleted edits?" unreachable in VE, NWE.

The difference between the message on top of the page and the undelete option in the page tabs is that the second doesn't tell you whether there are deleted revisions until you invoke it.
This actually is more or less a page notice (read it as "The page you are going to create has been deleted before. Do you want to start from scratch, or do you want to undelete these revisions?") and thus should be shown together with the other page notice.

Schnark added a comment to T186974: Visual diff is missing a paragraph removal.

The "removed" paragraph was (with a few changes) just moved down, and the visual diff indeed shows this. The only problems I can see, are the fact, that the place from where it was moved is not shown, and the fact that the move indicator is really tiny, which is probably both in the scope of T169325.

To get an ä in Firefox with different colors, you can inject a CGJ:

I don't have Edge/IE ready to test whether this helps there, too.

Yet another alternative display that might be worth trying: A real base character, but in light gray: <span style="font-size: 200%;"><span style="color: #aaa;">ב</span>ֱ</span> This works quite well, at least for me in Firefox.

Schnark added a comment to T185980: Special characters → Hebrew displays incorrectly in WikiEditor and VisualEditor.

As far as I understand the issue, it is caused by the fact that some font/rendering system combinations do some special things for combining marks that are supposed to be used only in one script. When you try to use a base character from a different script, things might not work as expected. For Indic scripts (like Lao, as in the linked article) this usually is worse (because the rules how to combine base character and combining mark are more complicated), and indeed in Firefox (but not in Vivaldi on the same system), some of the Indic fonts in the special characters indeed have some strange display of the combining characters as well.
