Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Archive/New tag for notes

New tag for notes

  Withdrawn by proposer (too many proposals)

  • Problem:

Cannot edit notes in VE.

  • Who would benefit:

All editors, who love VE

  • Proposed solution: introduce new tag, which will be supported by VE
  • More comments: I was told the integration of notes is a problem, because the use same tag as references. This may overstep the problem.
  • Phabricator tickets:


@Juandev: Please describe what "notes" are or provide an example, and explain which "same tag" is used, so we can make sure that we discuss the same thing. Thanks! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 20:42, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
This is an example of notes.--Juandev (talk) 21:04, 8 November 2017 (UTC)
@Juandev: It is already possible, notes are using ref tags with groups, like <ref group="notes">...</ref> :
  1. edit a page using VE
  2. insert a reflist ("Seznam referencí")
  3. in that reflist, on the "use this group" ("Použít tuto skupinu") field, type a group name (like "notes" or "Poznámky")
  4. somewhere in the text, insert a note
  5. when inserting the note, using the basic form ("Základní podoba")
  6. there is a field where you can now choose "notes" or "Poznámky".
Hope this helps! Trizek (WMF) (talk) 09:42, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
Umm, but than it needs to be tuned. If I edit the page, which allready had some notes (which were not created this way) I cannot edit them easily (because, they have different parametr).--Juandev (talk) 20:33, 9 November 2017 (UTC)
