Tkarcher added a comment to T212608: Keep anchor when generating reference from URL.

This issue (Citoid replacing given URLs with the ones found in meta data) does not only cause problems with anchors, but also with sites using short urls in their meta data:

Yes please!

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

@Esanders : Is this the only change? If yes: Where does "Show preview" lead to? If it's the same page as today, I would have no chance to add an edit summary / comment between checking the preview and publishing the change. :-(

Tkarcher added a comment to T153315: Pasting annotated wikitext results in double encoding and therefore <nowiki>s.

Oh! The original bug reported by the task author (Copy {{Other uses|Target (disambiguation)}} from HTML, e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Other_uses The paste logic detects this as non-plain text HTML (which it is) and so converts it to wikitext, so the {{ are <nowiki>'d) is also reproducable in Edge and Firefox. So the bug seems to be more prevalent in Chrome, but some cases can be reproduced in other browsers as well.

@Deskana: Just tested it again with Chrome 50 in Windows 7. (I know it's outdated, but I tested it with Chrome 64 earlier - same results) Both Wikitext 2017 (Beta) and Syntax-Highlighting (Beta) are enabled in my settings.

Tkarcher changed the status of T178976: When VE is disabled but NWE is enabled and wiki is in multi-tab mode, initialization code for the "Edit" tab doesn't run from Stalled to Open.

@Deskana: Now that you can reproduce it, this issue should no longer be in status "stalled", should it?

Thanks for the tip with Ctrl+Shift+V. I was tearing my hair when I tried to manually archive a discussion section by copying it to an archive page. I agree with @dialmove and others above: This is not intuitive and should be fixed (e.g. by asking the user after pressing Ctrl+V whether he wants to convert the text or not).

Tkarcher added a comment to T130148: Improve citation / Citoid workflow in VisualEditor.

@Jdforrester-WMF : We got another complaint about this behaviour in the German Wikipedia (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Technik/Text/Edit/VisualEditor/R%C3%BCckmeldungen#Betreff_Plazierung_eines_Buttons), and I agree with the creator of this task: Discarding all changes without warning when leaving a dialog window should not be the standard behaviour. Especially when the same dialog window is modal for all other types of references (i.e. you can't discard a manually entered reference by leaving the window).

Tkarcher added a comment to T165283: Editing a page with unflagged changes should edit latest version in VE, even if you view the stable version.


This is the only info you get. After switching to English I noticed this text is actually better, mentioning the possible data loss explicitly (other than the German text), and not including the strange advice of clicking "Edit" again. However, if you click anywhere in the text, the note is gone, and there's no further warning when saving the page.

@clel: There's a "Attention!" note when opening the editor, stating that you're editing an older version, which will become the current version after saving. It also says that clicking the "Edit" button again would fix this issue. However, clicking this button does not have any effect at all. After closing this note, there's no further warning message when saving your changes.

As a workaround on the desktop, you can hit the Escape key to return to a usable state. But yes, this should be fixed.

Tkarcher added a comment to T50290: VisualEditor: ↵ is shown when wikicode contains single newline, which is not very WYSIWYG.

Additional feedback from a German editor regarding this issue:
"Wikipedians delete the '↵' in VisualEditor and replace it with a space. But this character '↵' only indicates that a break was added to the source for better readability, which is automatically translated into a space. It's often used in long citation blocks, for example. This' ↵'-character makes the Wikitext / source text more readable. The good readability of the source text in the source editor (Edit window) is still one of the quality indicators explicitly mentioned in our guidelines for good articles. The meaning in the VisualEditor is only that the user should insert a new text not to the left but to the right of the '↵' character. Just simply so that the line break in the source text remains directly behind the left character. But, when looking at the instructions, this subtlety is not mentioned. Also, no warning is displayed when you delete the '↵' character in the VisualEditer. Apparently the character can not be inserted in the VirtualEditor any more, if it was deleted. [...] I would hope that there is a warning when deleting the character or a tooltip when the mouse is hovering above the character. Thank you."
