Preparing for translationEdit

Re [1], a few notes:

  • no need to add the unit markers (the numbers) manually (you made some mistakes and 60, 61, 62, 130 are used more than once);
  • the list in the section "== Notes ==" (and Uninstalling) should not be a single translation unit, these are many sentences;
  • I'm not sure what to think of all the untranslatable strings in the units (those in "code" tags), I guess it's overkill to use tvar for each of them.

Nemo 14:26, 22 December 2015 (UTC)[]

I see you are translation admin on Commons. If you fix what listed above and you are interested in converting more pages here, I'll flag you here too. Then it's easier to spot problems on your own, with the page marking interface. Nemo 14:29, 22 December 2015 (UTC)[]
@Nemo bis:
  • I prefer to “say” what I want—I don’t like when a program tries to figure out what I wanted, it’s easier and more precise to tell it explicitly. I also thought that if I mark the same content with the same number, it has to be translated only once—it works for references but, as I can see, it doesn’t work for translation units. (What other mistakes are there?)
  • Okay, I will split them (along with the other fixes).
  • I thought it’s easier for the translator, and can be more simply changed by the developer.
  • I think I wouldn’t use the flag, so no thanks.

Adding unit markers manually is just wrong, don't do it. Ok on the rest. Nemo 20:06, 22 December 2015 (UTC)[]
@Nemo bis: Done. Now I tested it in my own wiki so it should work. --Tacsipacsi (talk) 20:59, 22 December 2015 (UTC)[]

@Nemo bis: I prepared {{Extension}} for translation. The text is on my computer, because if I put the translation tags into the template, all transclusions will fail. (Maybe if I create {{Extension/en}} before saving the main template, it’ll be OK.) So I do it only if you say you can mark it for translation. (It’s somehow part of the previous, because this makes possible to translate the infobox too.) --Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:04, 29 December 2015 (UTC)[]

Uh, that's an ambitious page to mark. Yes, please copy the current text to /en before preparing the page. Then I *think* adding the translate tags will not break anything, although we can't be sure because many pages may still transclude the template directly. Nemo 21:48, 6 January 2016 (UTC)[]
@Nemo bis: I found Extension status while correcting transclusions (there are now fewer than 700 pages without translated subpages). Can you mark it for translation? (Maybe I need the translation admin right at least temporarily indeed…) Thanks, --Tacsipacsi (talk) 19:52, 7 January 2016 (UTC)[]

@Nemo bis: I’ve changed all templates, except the userspace. Shall I change user pages too? --Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:11, 8 February 2016 (UTC)[]


Can you help with the problem of the not shown collapse/expand/empty bullets in the extension? is there any posibility to change the "symbols" to images? at the moment the toggle works once, after toggle back the image-tag or the code is shown instead of the picture. Reload the page will bring the piucture/image back?!? thanks a lot ... Gerd 10:06, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Regarding integration of voting feature in 'Extension:StructuredDiscussion' .Edit

I wanted to know if there is any simple way in which a voting feature can be added to 'Extension:StructuredDiscussion' ...

One way can be to somehow integrate 'Extension:VoteNY' with 'Extension:StructuredDiscussion'. Is this possible ?

(I dont want the replies to move up and down like reddit..I just want to add a functionality so that user can vote replies given by other users)

please guide me. --Falcopragati (talk) 09:23, 21 June 2019 (UTC)[]


Hey. Thanks for fixing the module! Minorax (talk) 12:30, 1 March 2020 (UTC)[]

@Minorax: You’re welcome, but I would be happier if there was nothing to fix. :) I still don’t understand why this import was needed to begin with, could you please give me a clue? I think these basic templates are usually at least as much up-to-date as on Meta, but in this particular case the documentation module was even more up-to-date here. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 12:41, 1 March 2020 (UTC)[]
Wanted to import the {{Noping}} template and I checked the import all templates box. To be honest, I didn't even expect the Lua error to appear. Minorax (talk) 12:44, 1 March 2020 (UTC)[]
@Minorax: I wouldn’t expect it to overwrite templates either, but now that you know that it does, please be more careful next time, and please use the comment field if you didn’t use it this time. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 13:18, 1 March 2020 (UTC)[]
Yeap. Thanks for helping :) Minorax (talk) 13:25, 1 March 2020 (UTC)[]

Template:Wikimedia_engineering_project_information has no linebreaks anymoreEdit

Hi, it looks like somehow destroyed the styling and also removed all and any line breaks for fields. See e.g. the box on mw:Wikimedia_Quality_and_Test_Engineering_Team. Any idea how to fix this? :-/ Thanks! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 14:45, 28 July 2020 (UTC)[]

@AKlapper (WMF): I was too late, Majavah already fixed it. Thank you, Majavah! (Unfortunately translated pages are quite hard to test, and I haven’t thought that someone would place the <templatestyles> tag in the <noinclude> section…) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 15:19, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[]

[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with MediaWiki and Wikitech communitiesEdit

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?

In this regard, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the technical communities in Wikimedia. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!

Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions. KCVelaga (WMF), 14:38, 21 February 2021 (UTC)[]

Re: Template:Uses TemplateStyles?diff=4683098Edit


{{#ifexpr :
	{{#if :{{yesno|{{{nocat|}}}}}|0|1}}and{{#if :{{{1|}}}|1|0}}
	| [[:Category:{{#invoke:Data|Module:Uses TemplateStyles/config|default_category}}{{#translation:}}]]

invocation was actually correct, because the and is part of the outer {{#ifexpr :...}} instead of the inner {{#if :...}}s, which uses the {{#expr :...}} syntax, which tests for numeric boolean truthy‑ness. — ExE Boss (talk) 07:10, 3 July 2021 (UTC)[]

@ExE Boss: Almost correct. Okay, I got lost in the curly braces (using the parameters of {{yesno}}, i.e. {{#if:{{yesno|{{{nocat|}}}}}|0|1}}{{yesno|{{{nocat|}}}|yes=1|no=0}}, would’ve made it more readable, just like inserting an—HTML comment-escaped—line break before the opening {{#ifexist: would’ve), but there are still edge cases where the two are different: {{Uses TemplateStyles||Template:Example/styles.css}} is valid for the module (see on the right), but your categorization skipped it, as the first unnamed parameter is blank; {{yesno|f}} returns yes, while require('Module:Yesno')('f') returns false. The latter is rather an inconsistency between the template and the module than a bug in your code, but it still means that the categorization used different rules than the actual display. (By the way, your talk page message’s source code is also unreadable. There’s nothing wrong in web text wrapping on whichever word boundaries, but wikitext full of &nbsp;’s makes it practically impossible to read diffs.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:56, 3 July 2021 (UTC)[]


Hi. I wanted to change language of Module documentation pages by Special:Diff/4731418. Can we refer namespace index of the current page there?--Shirayuki (talk) 21:32, 31 July 2021 (UTC)[]

@Shirayuki: Yes, mw.title.getCurrentTitle().namespace == 828. However, even with that fixed,
  • You unnecessarily duplicated the configuration and i18n. Module:TNT has a function named formatInLanguage, which can be used to load translations from Commons in an arbitrary language, without manually copying them over.
  • Your solution changed only half of the messages, messages from Module:Documentation/i18n were not changed.
Also, keep in mind that this is a global module. Non-trivial changes like this one should be tested in the sandbox. Or even better, not put in the global part at all, since monolingual wikis usually won’t have this {{int:lang}} hack, and the module will probably break in them. It’s not even needed, it can be handled on the /config and /i18n subpages. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:30, 31 July 2021 (UTC)[]

A link to a translatable pageEdit

Thanks for that edit! I was certain I pasted the link above the translate tag. Obviously, you made it correct. SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 02:06, 5 October 2021 (UTC)[]
