Structured Discussions for all pages with a given prefix?

Thats per-wiki. You can set a namespace's default content model to Flow, without changing any settings on Flow extension itself, or having any fixes.

Emojiwiki (talkcontribs)

if you mean "prefix" (not namespaces), you can make a bot to do that. API is always your friend.

i did not want to thank a user but i mistook the button for reply button! Extension:Thanks requires confirmation before sending. why is it not the case for "flow"?!!!

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Feel free to unthank. And this has nothing to do with Flow at all.

RZuo (talkcontribs)

there's no button to unthank as far as i can see.

Reply to "Confirmation for sending Thanks"

it seems there is a problem.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

It's unclear what the problem is. A list of steps would be welcome, as steps.

Structured Discussion not working on some of my wikis

Nothing is wrong, I'd say. :) Structured Discussions it is not enabled on all wikis.

Aquacryst (talkcontribs)

I get it. But other users in those wiki sites have this feature; that's why I wonder whether I did it wrong or some setups that need to be done.

Hello. Trying to create Topic and get this error:

Exception caught: Fail to create title from namespace 2600 and title text 'w9xg3yu7dt9qvgi4'

In LocalSettings:

wfLoadExtension( 'Flow' );

$wgNamespaceContentModels[NS_TALK] = 'flow-board';

$wgNamespaceContentModels[NS_USER_TALK] = 'flow-board';

// Adding Flow's rights so that they are available for global groups/staff rights

$wgAvailableRights[] = 'flow-create-board';

$wgAvailableRights[] = 'flow-edit-post';

$wgAvailableRights[] = 'flow-suppress';

$wgAvailableRights[] = 'flow-hide';

$wgAvailableRights[] = 'flow-delete';

$wgAvailableRights[] = 'flow-lock';

$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['flow-delete'] = true;

$wgGroupPermissions['user']['flow-supress'] = true;

$wgGroupPermissions['*']['flow-create-board'] = true;

$wgGroupPermissions['user']['flow-lock'] = true;

$wgFlowContentFormat = 'html';


It looks like it should work. What could be wrong?

Hello!

Is there a dedicated log page to list all the operations related to structured discussions? Just like thanks logs.

You can't on MediaWiki, but you can activate/deactivate it on other wikis.

Pppery (talkcontribs)

@Prahlad balaji: That's not true. It's entirely possible to have a wikitext talk page on MediaWiki.org, it's just that an admin has to manually create it. See Topic:Vhgykhmyxtvtm4dk for an example of a successful request for a Wikitext talk page. As for the original issue on the French Wikipedia, I think the problem may be phab:T234241, but don't know how to solve it.

Prahlad balaji (talkcontribs)

@Martin m159: I think you should take Pppery's advice. I'm a noob in this area.

Pppery (talkcontribs)

Perhaps you shouldn't suggest something is impossible when you self-admittedly are a noob?

Ah, for frwiki! For the record:

You will have to ask wiki admins to...

  1. visit your talk page
  2. append &action=info in URL bar (or click Page information in sidebar)
  3. click change in "Page content model" section
  4. make New content model: "wikitext" and save.
