Yep, however it looks like the message needs to be blanked for every language separately! Is that what is expected? Right now we have done it for de, en and it, but we cannot do that for any language a user might have set in their preferences.

XanonymusX added a comment to T255785: Template insertion fails in 2017 wikitext editor (including citation templates via citoid).

Hm, the thing is: the main reason why people use the NWE (in my experience) is exactly the functionality that is broken now. So switching back to the old editor does not solve anything in this regard (while switching to VE does, oddly enough). Right now I have to start off with VE, insert templates and references, then switch to NWE and copypaste everything in place. Very unfortunate, but I get that the number of users affected is indeed pretty low.

Fair enough, it should be a relatively rare use case anyway. But the cursor losing focus when clicking the editnotice seems like a general bug to me; if fixing that problem made charinsert work in NWE as well (I have no idea about whether the two things are related at all, just as an idea), great, otherwise there is little need to work on this any further, I agree.

This came up these days during talks with German public broadcast. There is definitely the expectation from users to be able to jump between videos, especially if they are collected inside a gallery. Having an empty screen after finishing watching one video in the current player is also pretty dissuasive. Even though I myself hardly ever use the MediaViewer, I would expect this to be a very positive development for readers.

XanonymusX added a comment to T241933: Simple page transclusions are wrongly treated as templates in VisualEditor.

Well, calling something a template when it’s not does look wrong to me. Plus, if it can’t be edited, giving users an edit dialogue is very misleading as well. Sure, there are several templates without parameters; but at least with page transclusions from other namespaces that should be obvious enough to be treated differently by the VE. I would expect a dialogue that just says something like “This content is generated by ‘page name’. You can edit it directly on that page.” (with proper linking, obviously). Or leave it as it is and let the “edit” button directly open the other page in a new tab? Something like that, I would think. Page transclusions can never have a “description”, so that note is also very misleading. Since this way of transcluding pages in discographies is standard on deWP, it’s not a small issue; and as far as I know, there are many lists and disambiguations that are composed of transcluded parts as well.

XanonymusX added a comment to T40724: VisualEditor: Automatically use "smart quotes" and convert other typing to more advance characters (as an option).

Hm, fair enough. Sounds a bit English-centered, but I get that the number of potentially supported/affected languages is a fact that should not be overlooked. I am indeed using Schnark’s tool and it works fine overall (except for single quotation marks, but even MS Word still can’t deal with those, so I guess there is no proper solution), also for other languages than German. As always with such tools, I just do believe that they would be most useful for new editors, and like this there is a only a small chance that they would find out about and start using it by themselves. That leaves us once again with lots of unnecessary corrections all over the articles. Furthermore, with every year that passes, the chance that some wikis might want to start “enforcing” proper typography is diminishing; I had a long discussion on itWP years ago about the issue and it was clear that without a generally available autocorrect function nobody would be willing to change the typography rules. I guess with autocorrect available from the beginning, even the (to say the least: debatable) MoS rule on enWP would not exist in this form.

Update: I still haven't found the JS that fixes the problem on the mobile version; but I just noticed that the WP iOS app apparently does not follow the example, there the tooltips are still sticky. I would expect at least the iOS app to be specially designed for dealing with such known iOS bugs. Very confusing, but it shouldn't be impossible to fix this for all versions and devices.

So I created this testing environment, using only the tooltip-related styles: http://danu-talis.bplaced.net/tooltip-test.html (first with the styles I use on testwiki, then with the ones I use on German WP). You are right, it behaves exactly like it does in MediaWiki environment. Btw, I also found out that when using Firefox on iOS, the sticky tooltips problem is resolved, but the caption still jumps.

I don't know, but I would guess that these sites have implemented something that makes it work, either intentionally or accidentally. Maybe they have a global click event handler for some reason, making everything "clickable", or maybe they override something about scrolling that accidentally changes what tapping does.

If you want to prove it's a MediaWiki problem, please create a small stand-alone .html file that implements the same feature and does not have the problems.

Thanks for looking into it! Well, if it is a general iOS problem, why doesn’t it happen on the external website and why only in WP desktop version and not in mobile version? Otherwise I wouldn’t have asked it here. And the caption jumping is definitely not a Safari bug, since it also happens in Chrome; furthermore, I would expect to find trace of such a bug on some other support/discussion site if it were a general one (probably captions are not that often used, but still). So I’m not convinced that there is nothing to do on the side of MediaWiki.

Is anything happening here? I have made a lot of unnecessary template edits already because of the lack of a preview function. If it is not introduced, I guess template pages should either use the CodeEditor or the old wikitext mode per default , otherwise template editing will never properly work.

XanonymusX added a comment to T201466: Lua: new line before infobox not suppressed.

Ah, I see. My earlier suggestion for a fix was indeed to leave the first line with the {| inside the template and create only the following parts through Lua. But apparently the <div>\n{| solves the problem! Thus I suppose that infoboxes should always be wrapped in a div to avoid such a behaviour.

XanonymusX added a comment to T201466: Lua: new line before infobox not suppressed.

I will look into this. But if it is not a Lua problem, what other change to the template could have been relevant for changing the behaviour? If you compare this article with the original template and the corresponding German article with the new Lua template, the difference is visible.

XanonymusX added a comment to T192385: Support for conditional parameters in TemplateData.

I think this is related to T52407, about the larger need of a way to specify dependencies between parameters. There is indeed a lot of work still to be done in order to make sure that TemplateStyles can deal with any kind of templates. However, I doubt that “low priority” will ever get us there …

XanonymusX added a comment to T191612: Make the creation of CSS pages with TemplateStyles work more sensibly on the German Wikipedia.

According to this help page, Templates are supposed to have subpages just like user or project pages. And indeed I also never noticed any different software treatment until recently with TemplateStyles.

Indeed, meanwhile articles mainly edited with VE are flooded with auto generated weblinks disguised as “cite book”, which will then also further spread with copy&paste by inexperienced users.

XanonymusX added a comment to T171616: Font size changes, and then the editor crashes.

I hoped that resolving T185184 would fix this as well. But I can still reproduce the invisible wikitext parts at the beginning of any article that start with a template (infoboxes, usually). Just encountered another interesting case: initially, there were two different infoboxes at the beginning of the article, which I both deleted (by selecting single parts of them and overwriting the wikitext; it was this article: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zero_Assoluto). Then I used the backwards function of the editor, which eventually only brought back the first infobox. When using the preview, though, the other infobox was still there. Trying to reproduce it later, I managed to get various combinations of chaotic template wikitext, like

Okay, did some testing: I can always reproduce the problem in Firefox and Chrome, while in Edge it works fine (all browsers are updated to the latest version). Whether I am logged in or not does not matter; any time I paste a chunk of text (no difference between VE and NWE), there is an invisible character at the end of the line, which I can only get rid off by deleting it explicitly or by saving the page. OS is Win10, also latest version.

This sounds a lot like T171616 to me! There it has nothing to do with syntax highlighting, though. In any case I can still reproduce my problems, although I fortunately did not have another crash.

XanonymusX added a comment to T97936: Allow user to switch cite template in limited circumstances.

At least in German Wikipedia, the number of wrongly used cite book templates for websites is increasing quickly, as new users apparently just leave the formatting of the reference to VE. This produces a completely unnecessary workload when correcting the templates subsequently and also means that you will have to fill in everything manually if you want to have it correctly from the start. It’s definitely not of low priority!

XanonymusX added a comment to T171616: Font size changes, and then the editor crashes.

To give a short summary of my usual steps (described in detail in German): it always happens when I want to delete an infobox at the beginning of an article which contains a photo. The moment I try to use the file name in a normal file embedding without the infobox code, the font changes and different problems can arise (there are some variations): sometimes the editor is completely blocked, one time making it even impossible to save (after a lot of editing in the article); sometimes it is not possible to write in some paragraphs (in those moments the Chrome console always warned about "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'getStore' of null" and similar); usually if I try to copy-paste some part of the source, I will not get back the part I have previously selected (mostly the code at the beginning of the article that I had previously deleted will always reappear somewhere). Looks like some deleted parts instead of vanishing are somehow hidden under other parts of the text.

XanonymusX added a comment to T52407: TemplateData: Add a way to express dependencies between parameters.

Well, I have another case: In German Wikipedia we have Template:Charteintrag, where not only such dependencies are required (eg if “POS_xy” then also “WO_xy”), but even the parameter names depend heavily on earlier added parameters. If I enter 1=x and 2=y, the possible parameters following are POS_x (with WO_x) and POS_y (with WO_y), but of course not eg POS_z! At the moment TemplateData is totally useless with this template, I fear.
