jhsoby closed T189459: Adding an extra tab in the top of Basque Wikipedia as Resolved.

Alright, the import is finished, so I'm closing the task. Some work remains to be done, but I think that's better done and coordinated on the Basque Wikipedia itself as it shouldn't require any developer attention/coding/etc.

That could be interesting. Another solution, but maybe more difficult, is that links INSIDE Txikipedia namespace always point to Txikipedia if w: is not added.

  1. I've already prepared the import, and I think it's ready to go, but I need importer rights. That's not something local bureaucrats can give, it needs to go via [[m:Steward requests/Permissions]], but for that we need some community consensus for that. Where should I go to request that?
  2. The tab code is working, we just need to translate the line with "tooltip-ca-nstab-txikipedia" into Basque. When done you can move that page to [[MediaWiki:Gadget-TxikipediaTab.js]], and put the necessary CSS for the tab in [[MediaWiki:Gadget-TxikipediaTab.css]]. Then create [[MediaWiki:Gadget-TxikipediaTab]] with a description of what the script does, and add the following line to [[MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition]]:
    1. TxikipediaTab[ResourceLoader|default|dependencies=site,mediawiki.api,mediawiki.util|type=general]|TxikipediaTab.js|TxikipediaTab.css
  3. That's easy to add by bot once the import is done.

jhsoby added a comment to T191396: Add extra namespace in Basque Wikipedia.

I don't think a separate tab for the Txikipedia talk would be necessary, one could just use the normal talk page for that, don't you think? If you want a separate tab for it that's relatively simple to achieve, but I think it would look a bit messy.

Wed, Apr 4, 11:20 AM · Wikimedia-Site-requests
jhsoby claimed T191396: Add extra namespace in Basque Wikipedia.

Just to confirm, the talk namespace should be "Txikipedia eztabaida", correct? The talk namespace won't get any links, so probably very minimal use, but it needs to be there nonetheless – I fear it will complicate things a lot if it isn't.

jhsoby added a comment to T189459: Adding an extra tab in the top of Basque Wikipedia.

The end result would be pretty much the same, but an extension would be preferable since adding the tab(s) is done server-side instead of client-side by a javascript. However, it seems that extension is in need of a maintainer, which I wish I could do, but I don't have the know-how. Until that happens, the JavaScript can be used and if the extension gets revitalized and approved then you could switch to it, that would be simple once the extension is approved/set up.

jhsoby added a comment to T189459: Adding an extra tab in the top of Basque Wikipedia.

Alright, I finished the script, you can test it by adding importScript( 'Lankide:Jon Harald Søby/VikidiaTab.js' ); to your common.js. It substitutes the wikiproject namespace for Vikidia, since the Vikidia namespace doesn't exist yet. You can test it on a page like Arkitektura or any other article to see that it works.

jhsoby added a comment to T189459: Adding an extra tab in the top of Basque Wikipedia.

Yeah, to create a namespace you need to file a task here (preferrably when the discussion is finished). You also need to figure what should be imported – Vikidia naturally has several namespaces, but with this solution I think only the main namespace content should go into the new namespace, so you need to figure out what should be done with the other content. Looking at the stats, there are only four talk pages, some user & user talk pages (probably shouldn't be imported), a few images (all without any licensing info; should probably try to find from Commons instead, so not import), around 150 templates (many of which seem to be copied from Wikipedia, and therefore probably identical to existing ones), and just a small handful of pages in other namespaces. All in all I'll say it's very doable, and I'd be happy to help you with the import itself, since I have done similar things a couple of times for Incubator wikis to Wikipedias, so I know what steps to take.

jhsoby added a comment to T189459: Adding an extra tab in the top of Basque Wikipedia.

It doesn't create namespace 114, but points the tab link to a page in that namespace (which happens to be 114 in this case) with the same pagename. So yes, if you use this system the pages from Vikidia should be imported so that the pages from Vikidia's main namespace go into a new namespace (probably called Vikidia), and the script needs to be adapted to point to that namespace. One question is if you want there to be a (red) link to Vikidia on every page that doesn't have one, or if it should be restricted to only the pages that have a Vikidia page – I can imagine quite a few articles that shouldn't necessarily have a "kid's version". There are multiple possible solutions – only showing the links when a Vikidia page exists; implementing a template like {{NOVIKIDIALINK}} with some code that trigger the tab not to be shown; etc.

It's happening because TemplateStyles isn't enabled yet on sewikimedia, while it is on svwiki. This should only affect the documentation template, so the button template itself should work as it should. 😊

That said, I would certainly prefer it wasnt a raw html wiki. At first glance it sounds like this move will elliminate most of the need for raw html and also provide a good excuse to disable raw html.

There is nothing currently planned for this wiki after the launch of the new site that would require it to maintain support for raw html.

@BukhariSaeed The patch doesn't contain the namespaces "Summary" and "Thread". What is the purpose of those namespaces, what do you intend to use them for if I may ask? I'm especially wondering if the "Thread" one is the translation of the Topic namespace from the Flow extension, or if it is something different related to Wiktionary.

jhsoby added a comment to T186445: TranslationNotifications: code stewardship review.

In addition to looking into MassMessage integration, I think it would also be worth looking into integrating it with Notifications (Echo). That was actually something I wanted when the extension was made, the problem was just that Echo didn't exist yet. :-) Right now I think the threshold for sending out a notification is very high since it's posted to many user talk pages, but being able to send out notifications via Echo should lower that threshold significantly I think.

jhsoby closed T186107: Enable ArticlePlaceholder for Estonian Wikipedia (etwiki) as Resolved.

Fixed, after enabling one needs to create the template and module named "AboutTopic". I just copied the ones from sewiki, and it's working well now.

@MarcoAurelio What do you think, can this be deployed? Wrt. my comment above.

Many wikis use Yair rand's WikidataInfo.js as a gadget, it's worth taking a look at that.

jhsoby closed T186100: Article in German leads to a wrong article in English as Resolved.

If you find stuff like this in the future, you should ask somewhere like Wikipedia:Technik/Werkstatt or Wikidata:Forum, since this is not actually a bug/software problem. :-)

jhsoby added a comment to T185661: Rename Project NS on Wikimedia Canada Chapter's wiki.

@MarcoAurelio, when we did that (rename namespace) for the Walloon Wiktionary all we needed to do was change config and then run namespaceDupes. However, since cawikimedia doesn't have any pages in the "Project" namespace or any pages in the main namespace with the prefix "Wikimedia:", I'm not even sure you'd have to run that script. Should still do it just to be safe though.

Should be all set! Feel free to use {{PLURAL}} and {{GENDER}} for any messages that have parameters. I didn't add support for other less common magic words, but if something isn't working for you just let me know I can probably fix it.

@Reptilien.19831209BE1 I am correct in assuming the talk namespaces should just be "X copene", correct?

  1. On any item, click add new property
  2. Type in "family name" (or the equivalent in your language)
  3. Type in "Jünge" or "Ekaas" – no results
  4. Alternatively, type in the Qids Q47454217 or Q47454218 – no results
