Manque important dans résumé de modification

Bjr. Sur la relecture de modifications de cette page ("Dimanche"), il manque une grande partie et si mes souvenirs sont bons, il s'agit au moins d'une note (citation de l'Epître aux Magnésiens), soit la réf. n° 26 de ce jour qui n'apparaît pas dans le développement que j'y ai apporté. Si cela peut aider, jécris toujours en mode visuel.

Je ne peux pas être plus précise :-) Bonne année.

Summary by Jdforrester (WMF)

Nothing to do with visual diffs.

DonRumata (talkcontribs)

Please add rule .diffchange-inline { white-space: break-spaces; } because Google Chrome incorrect displays diffs with deleted trailing spaces, which tagged inside .diff-deletedline. See Diff Test in Google Chrome.

Oh, and you reported it on multiple irrelevant pages. Please don't do that.

@TChan (WMF), could you take a look at this? It appears that he created a new section (some new text + some text moved from other parts of the article), but the visual diff doesn't show where it came from.

bump

G.L.Sirius (talkcontribs)

That happened to me too.

ESanders (WMF) (talkcontribs)

This is currently working as intended. There is a discussion at T169325 about how to improve this, but it is unfortunately not a priority for the team at the moment.

Fixed a typo, shows the entire content on "diff"

Summary by ESanders (WMF)
Chbrandt (talkcontribs)

I fixed a typo (Postgress) at page "New Developers", and it is showing the entire content on "diff": all red and all green. I was expecting to see only the edited text (Postgress -> Postgres, or really 's' -> ' ') diff'd. To have the entire content highlighted (red/green) is confusing.

ESanders (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The visual diff will not work well on pages with <translate> tags. We could consider turning it off on such pages.

Can't see the templates!

G.L.Sirius (talkcontribs)

I couldn't (when i opened the "review your changes" box) (it was in Visual Mode) see a template (it showed me "⋮" instead (it was not expandable, if it was a menu or button))

that (in the page) said: "

" Also, it did not show me the contents of See also!

Is this a problem?

For more info (I think I didn't explain it correctly) visit this URL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manto?action=edit

Thanks!

When i try to make preview of changes the editor tell me the following message:

Error during loading data from server: Error contacting the Parsoid/RESTBase server (HTTP 403).

Any suggest?

Lotje (talkcontribs)

I have the same problem. Guess we need someone out here who is willing to look into this.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I believe this was a temporary problem with the server. I can't find official documentation of the incident right now; sorry. Thank you both for reporting it.

The word `aankoop` is suddenly wrongly changed

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Paul, can you please tell me more? Also, do you have any ad-blocking software installed?

Afrouzaz (talkcontribs)

ESanders (WMF) (talkcontribs)

These errors sound like T265043. There are a few suggested fixes in that discussion.

Only changed a citation, diff shown was wrong

Summary by Whatamidoing (WMF)
AxelBoldt (talkcontribs)

In this edit I had used the "edit source" link next to the section header "Later career". I only changed the contents of one citation template. Before publishing the changes, I clicked on "Review your changes". The shown diff was completely wrong; it only highlighted some footnote number, but not the actual change I made.

This problem is reproducible if you follow the above steps.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I think this is fixed already? When I checked the visual diff, I got a red line showing:

Peace, William. "Head Nurses". Atrium. Retrieved 16 December 2015.

and a green line showing:

Peace, William (Winter 2014). "Head Nurses" (PDF). Atrium. No. 12 "Bad Girls". pp. 20–22. Retrieved 9 July 2020.

(both with the expected links for the title).

AxelBoldt (talkcontribs)

@Whatamidoing (WMF): No, the issue isn't fixed. If you click on this edit and then choose "Visual", you will indeed get a correct visual diff. But if you follow my steps (edit the section, change a reference, and review your changes before publishing the edit), the displayed diff will be wrong.

I had assumed that the diffs would match, but they don't. Phab:T260008 describes the problem. Please feel free to "Be Bold" and edit the description or add a comment to explain further, if you think anything is wrong/missing.

Légende fantôme

Mylenos (talkcontribs)

Bjr,

Sur l'article "Cornée", une des illustrations ne possédait pas de légende. Je l'édite pour ajouter la légende "Anatomie de l'oeil" mais bizarrement, elle y figure. Ok, je retourne sur l'article mais la légende n'y est toujours pas.

Pour résumer : la légende figure sous l'image quand on veut modifier/ajouter la légende mais quand on retourne sur la page ou quand on valide la page, la légende a disparu.

J'ai essayé plusieurs fois en vain.
