GoogleTrans gadget now recoded

Hi there,

Last year you mentioned to me in a post that you had looked at my GoogleTrans gadget and it was old and ugly code that you wouldn't work with.

This is to alert you that I have recoded quite a bit of the gadget now. It is a Javascript Object now, the code to determine the word under the cursor, and whether the cursor is in the selected text has been completely rewritten.

Hey Endo999, glad to hear that!
I took a look at the code and while it's clearly an improved version over the previous one, there are still some things to fix. JSHint, the JavaScript code quality tool used for MediaWiki core and many MediaWiki extension, produces the following errors about the current version of the code (161 erros in total):

A few of these might be invalid or subjective (mostly the "bad line breaking" ones), but a lot of them appear to be valid. Additionally you might want to familiarize yourself with MediaWiki's JavaScript coding conventions — while they, too, are somewhat subjective, they're widely accepted in the MediaWiki developer community and for a good reason.
Some additional thoughts:
  • Do you really need to explicitly check for certain browsers (e.g. Konqueror, Netscape)? As per Compatibility, only certain modern browsers receive Grade A support. JavaScript isn't even loaded for certain ancient browsers (IE6 & 7 at least) anymore, so chances are your code will never be executed in these browsers anymore.
  • You may want to use jquery.cookie or mediawiki.cookie (I think the latter one is the recommended one) ResourceLoader module instead for the cookie stuff instead of rolling out your own logic.
  • Finding X and Y position (GT.SCfindPosX/GT.SCfindPosY) can likely be done via jQuery. jQuery is one of those few things always guaranteed to be available in the MediaWiki environment (but some specific jQuery plugins, such as the aforementioned cookie-related ones, are not always available and have to be explicitly loaded). --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 17:00, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

I've had a look at your error listing, and made changes to the code to reduce the number of LINT errors. I tried out JSINT and it is too finicky to actually use. But I will try to get the style better than it was before.

Endo999 (talk) 04:23, 13 January 2017 (UTC)

I finally got JSHINT to work in my Notepad++ and allowed for "tolerate messy white space". I only have 6 errors now, most of which have to do with nonascii characters in regular expressions. (I'm going to keep these because they make GoogleTrans work with Chinese/Japanese characters). Thanks for telling me about JSHINT. I will definitely run javascript through it in the future. I've updated the gadget source file with the JSHINTed javascript source. Endo999 (talk) 07:02, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

My email has been confirmed on WikiIndex since early March 2009, so I'm not sure what you're referring to, but it's probably a more recent issue, so I haven't experienced it. --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 08:37, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Social Tools Integration with Flow

Hi, Would any of the Social Tools extension work with Flow extension? For example WikiForum, VoteNY? I could not find Flow compatibility infomration anywhere. I missed it, would appreciate a pointer.

Thanks, TitusiMW — Preceding unsigned comment added by TitusiMW (talkcontribs) 19:03, 28 February 2017

There is no explicit support for Flow. But fear not, like Extension:LiquidThreads, Flow is DOA. It hasn't been actively developed since October 2015 and it was disabled on the English Wikipedia in November 2016. --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 11:30, 1 March 2017 (UTC)

Regarding integration of Extension:VoteNY and 'Flow'

Hello Jack !

   I want to use 'Extension:VoteNY' which you authored. This extension is really smooth and efficient. I am working on a MediaWiki project. You might be aware of the Extension:StructuredDiscussions a.k.a 'Flow'. I want to add a voting feature to the user replies in the 'Structured:Discussions', similar to your extension's in which a vote counter appears. I hope it is possible. I wanted to know your opinion in this matter. Can you please guide me sir ?

Bug in Extension:LinkSuggest

Hi, the extension Extension:LinkSuggest Does something on an unexpected way.

I was writing an article, in "edit source" (not graphic editor or visual editor).

And the things happened this way:

  • I was typing a link, and the "suggested links" pop-up appeared
  • I Click with the cursor on a few lines after that
  • I use the mouse wheel
  • I choose a name from some of the suggested ones
  • BUG— The text is deleted as far as my cursor is

I would like it very much if this bug could be fixed, as this extension is otherwise very helpful and we had to disable it because of this error

The bug is very easy to reproduce, so i'm open to questions. Also i have pics of the before and after of one of these issues with the Extension:LinkSuggest.

Bugs are best reported on Phabricator to ensure that other developers will also see the issue (see how to report a bug for more details etc.). That said, maybe Ciencia Al Poder, as the primary author of that extension's JS part, has some idea as to what's going on in here and how to fix it? --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 11:04, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

Comments Extension stopped working

As of MW1.34 the comments extension stopped working (This version cannot work). I have just confirmed it doesn't work with MW1.36 either. This also means part of the Social Profile things won't work either, since they require the Comments extension to be installed in order to work.

BTW, this was already listed in April 2020, so it's been over a year since it's been noticed and confirmed for the first time that it doesn't work anymore.

I hope it can be fixed soon!

I've tested Comments (and other social tools and the non-social tools extensions and skins I maintain) extensively under MW 1.35.x and it seems to be working fine. As per Social tools/MediaWiki compatibility, amended this July, compatibility with the mentioned non-1.35 versions is incidental more than intentional...although to be honest, I don't really see how the MW version in use, whether 1.34, 1.35 or 1.36, would affect the mentioned things. That said, I've not been able to reproduce the problem in question nor have there been multiple new reports about it, so I'm not able to action on it or suggest anything else than maybe doing a fresh checkout, ensuring you use a tested, "officially supported" MW version (i.e. 1.35.x). Run update.php again and see what happens. --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 15:42, 10 August 2021 (UTC)

Add Social Media+ tab in Social Profiles

Hi Jack,

Seen that Social Profile is a Social tool, I was thinking it would be good to have social media links as a default option/tab in the Social Profile. Currently there's only "websites" under personal information, but a tab called Social Media+ or something like Other ways to contact me or something could be handy with links to:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Instagram
  • DeviantArt
  • ArtStation
  • Personal Website/Blog
  • Professional website
  • Other?

I'm making a Wiki where game Developers can post as well and this information can come in very handy.

Thanks for the consideration!

@IlseMul: This seems like a great idea! It'll require a bit of UI consideration, given the wide variety of social media sites and whatnot, but certainly is something we should do. I presume the only reason it hasn't been done and wasn't done by the original developers is that social tools predate sites like Instagram by years, and even giants like Facebook or Twitter which were a thing back then weren't anywhere as big as they are nowadays. :-)
You definitely should post this feature request on Phabricator to ensure it gets properly tracked! (It's an interesting idea but sadly I'm unable to promise you definitely, "yes, this will get implemented by <date>" as I'm swamped with all kinds of projects, online and offline alike. But it's why we have Phabricator, to track bugs and feature requests and to enable all interested people to read about them and to work on them!) --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 15:42, 10 August 2021 (UTC)
