Wiktionary:Gadget for floatable buttons to avoid Carpal tunnel syndromeEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

In ta.wiktionary, we need floatable buttons for edit, preview and save. Most of the our contributors are above 45 years old. In past years, they are not contributing and absent. I chatted with them and furnishing their need. To avoid much usage of scrolling which leads to w:Carpal tunnel syndrome, we need that gadget. Nowadays, i am also facing that syndrome. Dropping good contributors is painful. Please consider. The floating images here maybe helpful. Thanks in advance.--Info-farmer (talk) 06:20, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Info-farmer Symbol wait.svg Pending for 1-2 Months, Sorry as you know, We have not enough team to work on that. So I will try to done it before 1-2 Months :)--Jayprakash >>> Talk 12:19, 8 October 2018 (UTC)
Yes, i know. Thank you for cosideration. May i continue to furnish other needs one by one. i mean not only for ta.wikt and also for other Indian wiki projects.--Info-farmer (talk) 12:33, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Commons category maintenance featureEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

Category maintenance is one of the main contribution by many contributors. Usually sysop or the bot put the template which depends upon the maintenance task. After completion of the template task, a user should manually remove the template. To reduce the manual job, there is a cat-feature available at Commons. Due to that feature, automatic cat-removal occurs. See the video with full screen and maximum sound for two minutes. Kindly implement it in Tamil Wiktionary which will be the testcase for all Indian Wiktionaries.--Info-farmer (talk) 10:26, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Info-farmer, I have seen the codebase of Cat-a-lot and HotCat, This is the intended feature of these tools. Removing {{Uncategorized}} . If I took you right then you are talking that if a user adds a template in dozens of the page for maintenance. After that adds some category in the page. then The Template should remove automatically?--Jayprakash >>> Talk 14:34, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
Ans 1: Exactly. c:Category:Media needing categories will helpful for your tests--Info-farmer (talk) 16:02, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
Ans 2:For example, This ta.wikt category contains Tamil words with out any language translations]. If any contributor adds any translation by this tool, the category should disappear automatically. For that, what are the steps , i should follow? If you need any other example, ask me, please--Info-farmer (talk) 02:25, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Info-farmer Hmm, There is some littile bit confusin. Your Ans 1 says Remove Template if Category adds or removes. And Ans 2 says Remove Category if {{trans-top}} adds (trans-top will have to add manually because TranslationAdder works after trans-top added). So I am assuming that your Ans 2 is correct. So There will be chance to work on that. Please Confirm me :)--Jayprakash >>> Talk 03:57, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Ans 1 & Ans 2, both will be helpful. Ans 1 helps much not only for wikt and also for other projects. Ans 2 will be helpful(comparatively less) only for wikt. If you ask me to select only one, i prefer Ans 1.--Info-farmer (talk) 16:38, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Script for file renaming & auto replacement of that file on wikiEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

Is it possible to create a script that can automatically update all uses of a file after renaming the file? A similar script exist on commons for filemovers & admins but that doesn't work on wiki. (c:MediaWiki:Gadget-AjaxQuickDelete.js Move & Replace function) --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 21:22, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

আফতাবুজ্জামান, Thank you for requesting. Will you use the script on local wiki apart from commons? or will use only on commons.--Jayprakash >>> Talk 06:52, 18 October 2018 (UTC)
@Jayprakash12345: I will use this only on bnwiki. Commons doesn't need this, they already have c:MediaWiki:Gadget-AjaxQuickDelete.js. on commons this gadget do many other things like it support global replacing, i don't need any of them. --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 13:41, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

আফতাবুজ্জামান script will take 1 month to full deployment. Please help us to test the script. If you have sysop right on your wiki. then move 10 Images. So that I can analyze them. Add the following code to your local wiki common.js page.
mw.loader.load('//meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Indic-TechCom/Script/MoveAndReplace.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');

And Also give us feedback about its Interface and working process. Thanks :)--Jayprakash >>> Talk 20:02, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

@Jayprakash12345: Thank you very much. Very good & working. I have two more request:
1) Please add an option/checkbox for leaveRedirect. so, sysop can choose whether to leave a redirect or not. (to get an idea see this 'leaveRedirect' function)
2) is it possible to localize this gadget? at least edit summary?

Protection indicatorsEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

As you go through marathi wikipedia (mrwp), you will find some padlocks visible for all protected pages. Major wikipedia projects such as english wikipedia, Hindi wikipedia etc have a huge amount of pages that are protected. Everytime a admin has to place the pp-semi/protection banner templates on the articles/pages. Due to introduction of this script/gadget by me on Marathi wikipedia we are able to solve lot of problem. We have no need to add protection templates for indication of protected pages all get easily done by this gadget. No need to remove templates from the unprotected pages it gets automatically disappeared, this makes our maintainance work easy and accurate.

problems the script currently indicates only two padlock (silver for semi,golden for full) whereas they need to be more specific codes that will detect upload protected, cascade protected, pending changes, template protected etc.

After Solution After updation of this script indic language wikipedia admins need not worry about the adding/removing of protection banner/template on their wiki.

  1. It will give more time for administrators to focus on other maintainace works.
  2. It will decrease Bot usage for this maintance on large wiki.
  3. It will enhance the quality of protected articles for indication where some admins forget to add the template.
  4. Indic wikipedias will get boost as admins have more time for other activities.
  5. Will help in reducing backlog of removing wrong protection banner.

Script on Marathi Wikipedia can be found at mr:मिडियाविकी:Gadget-ProtectionIndicators.js

Fully protected page on mrwp. mr:साचा:मुखपृष्ठ सदर

नमस्ते Tiven जी, अनुरोध हेतु धन्यवाद। आपके अनुरोध के लेखन को देखकर अच्छा लगा। इसमें इसमें समस्या और समाधान का अच्छे से विवरण हैं। अब आता हूँ समस्या पर। जितना मैंने अभी तक मीडियाविकि जावस्क्रिप्ट डॉक्युमेंटेशन Interface/JavaScript#Page-specific में देखा हैं। उससे पता चलता हैं कि केवल दो wgIsProbablyEditable और wgRestrictionEdit ही config हैं जो पेज के सुरक्षा स्तर को चेक करते हैं। पहले वाला का रिटर्न केवल true या false आता हैं जबकि दूसरे वाला का रिटर्न में एक एरे आता हैं। जो केवल बताता हैं कि पेज को कौन एडिट कर सकते हैं। तो यह भी हमारी ज़रूरतों को पूरा नहीं करता हैं। बाद में इसे API के ज़रिए करने का सोचा था। लेकिन https://mr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ApiSandbox#action=query&format=json&prop=info&titles=Main%20Page&inprop=protection में भी कुछ काम का नहीं मिला हैं। तो यह कार्य होगा बड़ा मुश्किल हैं। मैं एक बार अपने किसी साथी से डबल चेक और कर लेता हूँ। स्क्रिप्ट को तो 10 मिनट में अप्डेट किया जा सकता हैं लेकिन कान्फ़िग कही से नहीं मिल रही हैं। धन्यवाद--Jayprakash >>> Talk 17:31, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

আফতাবুজ্জামান Ji, Sorry for the delay. This was the time taking so I tagged it for later on my workboard. Now coming to the issue.
  1. The number on the right side is about to impossible for us. because of the number on the right side number is image, not number. And It rendered from Maps Wikimedia See.
  2. "it possible to......istings ***/)" Nope, I did not find any element with class listing-map. It means মিডিয়াউইকি:Common.css's @media screen, print has no effect on map link numbering. So for the left side, I wrote the script voy:bn:ব্যবহারকারী:Jayprakash12345/common.js. But I strongly discouraged you to apply this script for all users. First It should be as the gadget. then we should talk with wikimedia maps team and then after them approval we should apply the script by default for all user. :)--Jayprakash >>> Talk 15:24, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Google Maps coordinatesEdit

There is a javascript bookmarklet on Wikipedia. It should be added to bookmark of a browser.

On Wikidata, we need it in this format: 28°36'46"N, 77°13'45"E Can you please convert this piece of javascript so that it works and gives result in Wikidata format? I tried myself, but something went wrong. Many thanks. -- Tito Dutta (talk) 21:07, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Currently on enwp we have Twinkle which is a marvelous tool. Since twinkle has some tools that are very useful on almost all wiki.

Tiven2240 Ji, मैंने मुख्य स्क्रिप्ट को काट-छाँट कर नया स्क्रिप्ट बना दिया हैं। User:Jayprakash12345/Scripts/MiniTwinkle देखें। लेकिन मेरे अनुसार आपको इसके मुख्य लेखक को यह अनुरोध करना चाहिए था। क्यूकिं वे ट्विंकल का रेगुलर रखरखाव करते हैं। हम अन्य प्राजेक्ट्स में व्यस्त भी रह सकते हैं। तो रेगुलर इसका रखरखाव नहीं हो पाएँगे। अगर स्क्रिप्ट काम ना करें। तो यहाँ सूचित करें। अन्यथा 1-2 साल तो बिना रख रखाव के भी स्क्रिप्ट चल ही जाएगा :) --Jayprakash >>> Talk 12:21, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

नमस्ते @Jayprakash12345:जयप्रकाश जी,

  • सद्य समय में बहोत इंडीक विकिपर अनेको पन्ने सिर्फ़ बेयर लिंक्स तथा सायटेशन्स ठिकसे लिखे ना होने की समस्यासे जुंज रहे हें ।
  • इसिलिये अगर हम, रिफ़िल और सायटेशन बोट यह दो अवजार इंडिय विकिपर ला सके तो बहोत ही अच्छा होगा.
  • मेंने दोनो अवजारों को लोकलाईज करने की विधा टटोलनेकी कोशीश कि, परंतु मुझे ज्यादा कुछ समझ ना आया, क्या आप इस विषय में प्रकाश डाल सकेंगे? और हो सकें तो इन अवजारों को इंडिक विकि के लिये कैसे लाया जा सकता हैं ये बता / कर पायेंगे? QueerEcofeminist (talk) 13:56, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
सुप्रभात QueerEcofeminist,
  1. citations टूल को केवल इंग्लिश विकिपीडिया के लिए बनाया गया हैं। तो यह केवल उसके लिए वर्क करता हैं। इसको इंडिक विकी के लिए बनाने में बहुत मेहनत लगेगा। लेकिन उससे बड़ी बात हैं कि हम अभी किसी भी प्रकार के बॉट खाते की ज़िम्मेदारी नहीं ले सकते। जैसे इंग्लिश विकिपीडिया पर w:en:User:Citation bot हैं। यह टूल केवल इंग्लिश विकी के लिए हैं तो इसका किसी भी प्रकार का लोकलाईजेशन नहीं हो सकता हैं।
  2. दूसरा reFill, सबसे पहले आपका यह जानना होगा की। हम चाह कर भी किसी टूलसफ़ॉर्ज की किसी टूल में परिवर्तन नहीं कर सकते हैं। जब तक कि हमारे पास उस टूल का ऐक्सेस ना हो। अभी refFill का ऐक्सेस w:en:User:Zhaofeng Li के पास हैं। जो इसके रचियता हैं। मैंने इस टूल को अपने लोकल वेबसर्वर पर इंस्टॉल करके टेस्ट किया हैं। यह मराठी विकी के लिए अच्छे से कार्य कर रहा हैं।(Diff) यदि आप इसे अपनी भाषा के लिए चाहते हैं तो इसके रचियता के वार्ता पृष्ठ पर लिख दें। वह इसे जोड़ देंगे। वैसे कई सारी इंडिक विकी को रीफ़िल टेस्ट में जोड़ भी जा चुका हैं. और आप इसका लोकलाईजेशन translatewiki.net पर कर सकते हैं।--Jayprakash >>> Talk 06:22, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

@Jayprakash12345: धन्यवाद जयप्रकाशजी, में सुरेश खोले हुं मराठी विकिपर लिखता हूं ज्यादातर, हाल ही मे मेंने अपना आयडी बदलवाकर QueerEcofeminist करवाया हैं, इसिलिये आप मुझे पहचान न सकें, हमारी रांची में मुलाकात हो चुकी हैं, कोई बात नहीं, मुझे आप कौनसे लिंगसे बुलाते है, उसपर कोई आपत्ति नहीं हैं, आपकी मदत और राय के लिए धन्यवाद में जरुर दोनों अवजारोंके रचयीतोंसे दरखास्त करके देखता हुं, और वैसा समुदायसेभी सलमशौरा कर लेता हुं, यह दोनोंभी अवजार बहोत जरुरी हैं हरऐक विकिपर इसिलिए में प्रयत्नरत रहुंगा.QueerEcofeminist (talk) 20:29, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

QueerEcofeminist जी, ग़लती को सुधार दिया गया हैं। आपसे राँची में मिलकर अच्छा लगा था। उम्मीद हैं भविष्य में फिर से मिलेंगे। अभी ऐक्सेस ना होने के कारण आपके अनुरोध को पूरा नहीं कर पाया। लेकिन यदि इसके रचित दो महीने से ज़्यादा समय तक रेफ़िल टूल में विकी नहीं जोड़ते हैं तो मैं कुछ विकी के लिए इसे अलग टूल से नाम पर टूलसफ़ॉर्ज पर होस्ट कर दूँगा। धन्यवाद--Jayprakash >>> Talk 21:05, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Bot to archive recently added website links on wayback machineEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

Telugu wikipedia needs a bot which can run everyday and archive recently added website links on wayback machine and update the pages citing them with archivelink.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 07:08, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Arjunaraoc More information needed, Please look at Indic-TechCom/Requests#Protection_indicators to see request format.--Jayprakash >>> Talk 19:21, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
@User:Jayprakash12345
Problem
Now users simply add weblinks to lot of regional language content, where the links are not permanent. After few months, the links become dead, which reduces the usefulness of the content. Example. The first link in the references section from that page is dead.
Solution
The bot which can review the recent edits, recognise the links that are added and then archive them on the wayback machine and update the citation on the page is needed. Example change for the above (I googled with the title and got url with ip address and used it. If the bot runs a day after link is added, the original link will be active.)
Hope the above helps.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 03:27, 25 December 2018 (UTC)

At most 10 users are active on Telugu Wikipedia. Many of them are not conversant with IRC.

Cleanup spam <nowiki/> introduced through Visual Editor editingEdit

Spam text <nowiki/> was introduced while adding links through Visual Editor (example) needed.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 07:16, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Arjunaraoc More information needed--Jayprakash >>> Talk 19:21, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
@User:Jayprakash12345, I have updated the the section title explained in more detail below.
Problem
Spam text <nowiki/> was introduced while adding links through Visual Editor (example) needed.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 07:16, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
Solution
Detect links such [[linkphrase]]<nowiki/> or [[linkphrase|visible_phrase]]<nowiki/> and remove the link and the suffix . Then the above text becomes linkphrase. Example fix.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 03:51, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
@Arjunaraoc:, is this still a problem? How many articles are affected (any guess)? I am willing to implement an AWB fix. Winged Blades of Godric (talk) 19:32, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Also, you need to write better bug-reports, assuming that we may not be proficient in the language and will be viewing the problem through some algorithmic fashion. What I see in your linked manual fix is:-
"[[ఉదాహరణ వాజ్మయము|ఉదాహరణ]]<nowiki/>" gives way to "వాజ్మయము" (Exclude quotes)
Does that mean, every time there's a generic wiki-text of the form "[[X Y|X]]<nowiki/>", it shall give way to "Y"? (Exclude quotes)
Shall I ever expect encountering any other generic variants like "[[X Y Z|X]]<nowiki/>" or "[[X Y Z|Y]]<nowiki/>"? or something entirely else?
"[[ఇటుక]]<nowiki/>" gives way to "ఇటుక" (Exclude quotes)
Does that mean, every time there's a generic wiki-text of the form "[[X]]<nowiki/>", it shall give way to "X"? (Exclude quotes)
And, most importantly, how did this happen, at the first place? Winged Blades of Godric (talk) 19:46, 4 February 2019 (UTC)
Thanks @Winged Blades of Godric for your response. This error happend due to a bug in Visual Editor some time back. We reported to the CIS team who offered to coordinate the action towards fixing it. I have not seen any response on that, but when I checked subsequently, the bug seems to have been fixed. We need to keep the visible phrase and remove the link syntax including link phrase if it is separate and the wikitext of </nowiki> following the link. Most of the links added in that manner were not sensible, as they were done by editor with inadequate skill of adding links. If you can restrict the correction to links that can be identified by a hanging </nowiki> preceded by internal link. I have no idea how many such errors are present. --Arjunaraoc (talk) 15:22, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
@Winged Blades of Godric In order not to effect proper links done by skilled editors, it is acceptable just to remove the hanging </nowiki> tag.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 01:38, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
Working, per the last option.Winged Blades of Godric (talk) 09:40, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

@Ijon: Hi Asaf, thanks for working on this request. Apart from this one request, I would to promote the localisation of this tool on Indian language Wikipedias (during TWLCon (2019 India). Would be interested to help me to create a standardised process for this? For example, the translations to be made, the pages to link, policies to be translated etc. KCVelaga (talk) 14:04, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
@KCVelaga: The same would be true for all other languages. The above text, with the six "<-- here" markers for localization, is all the tool seems to need. You can paste this onto a separate page, or share it on social media, or have everyone work on a shared Google Doc. When a language is done, mark it somehow (maybe in the section heading), and let me know, and I'll put it into the tool. I think this can happen entirely online, so it's not necessary to wait for TWLCon, if you'd like to move faster. Ijon (talk) 14:33, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
@Ijon: Thanks for detailing. Yes, it can done online. I'll start the process and ask participants to take it up a pre-event work. Anyways we are just five days to event. The problem is many of the languages (including Telugu) don't have translated pages for Visual Editor guide and also the CITELEAD policy. This might take time.

"Find and replace" tool for Assamese wikisourceEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

The "OCR" tool has been immensely helpful for Assamese wikisource but at the same time it is not 100% accurate. Whereas some obvious errors like Bengali "র"can be corrected while proofreading, some faults are shown as correct by the fonts such as "র" in conjuncts. We, therefore, need a bot and a gadget that can rectify these as the "find and replace" tool in standard editor or WikEd is very time consuming. A gadget button will be helpful for general editors and the bot can be run once in while by a user with technical knowledge. This will be a real boon for As.wikisource users. Also adding @Simbu123: and @Mridul Kumar Sharmah: to the discussion.

An example of such error can be seen here (source page : https://as.wikisource.org/wiki/%E0%A6%AA%E0%A7%83%E0%A6%B7%E0%A7%8D%E0%A6%A0%E0%A6%BE:%E0%A6%B6%E0%A6%99%E0%A7%8D%E0%A6%95%E0%A7%B0%E0%A6%A6%E0%A7%87%E0%A7%B1.pdf/%E0%A7%A8%E0%A7%AA)

Hi Jay, I added the gadget in my commons.js. I tested some pages and found that the tool is correcting one line at at time or so. It's taking multiple clicks to correct one page. Also it's not replacing some incorrect য় or ঢ়. Could you have a look at the tool again? My test pages were this and subsequent pages. Thanks.Gitartha.bordoloi (talk) 08:49, 9 February 2019 (UTC)
Hi all. I'm accepting defeat for now as I've realized that য় (09DF), ড় (09DC) and ঢ় (09DD) cannot be corrected in wiki pages. Even if I write them correctly they would turn into "য (09AF)+.", "ড (09A1)+." and "ঢ (09A2)+." respectively after saving the page even in meta script pages (though will look like correct characters. You can press backspace and see). Same problem is there in Bengali. For other inconsistencies User:দিব্য দত্ত has prepared a script here which should do for the time being. Thank you.

Twinkle menu appears distorted on Telugu WikipediaEdit

Twinkle menu display error

Twinkle menu tab shows grey triangles around it unlike other tabs. Need help to fix the same on Telugu wikipedia.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 06:07, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey Arjunaraoc Ji, Per image, there is two issues.
  • Extra spaces after More Dropdown.

Sol:- This comes because of మీడియావికీ:Gadget-Twinkle-pagestyles.css. There is 3.24em margin on the right side. To remove the extra spaces. You need to set 0em as margin just like I did in w:te:వాడుకరి:Jayprakash12345/common.css.

  • Unnecessary arrows in the background.

Sol:- This comes from w:te:మీడియావికీ:Gadget-Twinkle.js because there is a background config for Outer element. Which is totally useless at this point. To remove the image from the background. You need to remove following codes from w:te:మీడియావికీ:Gadget-Twinkle.js.

	if ( type === "menu" ) {
		// Fix drop-down arrow image in Vector skin
		outerDiv.style.backgroundImage = 'url("data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABYAAAAQCAMAAAAlM38UAAAAGXRFWHRTb2Z0d2FyZQBBZG9iZSBJbWFnZVJlYWR5ccllPAAAAA9QTFRFsbGxmpqa3d3deXl58/n79CzHcQAAAAV0Uk5T/////wD7tg5TAAAAMklEQVR42mJgwQoYBkqYiZEZAhiZUFRDxWGicEPA4nBRhNlAcYQokpVMDEwD6kuAAAMAyGMFQVv5ldcAAAAASUVORK5CYII=")';

Jayantanth Ji, What is the exact meaning of 'Readable Books', I know I tried it sometime before. But I was unable to catch it. I think you consider the Category:Index Validated as Readable book. But many of Indic Wikisource is not maintaining this category. So let us consider an example bnwikisource has 50 and sawikisocure has 0 Readable Books in Category:Index Validated as sawikisocure not maintaining Category:Index Validated.

Mozilla Addon Cite4wikiEdit

There are a good Addon Wikipedia:Cite4Wiki for citation tool on Mozilla Web browser. But it is not working for last 5 years. I don't know the any alternatives of this tool. Asaf Bartov tried to fix the issues at here. If the Indic Techcom Team could fix this issues , that will very helpful all community. Jayantanth (talk) 08:31, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

Is my fix no longer working? Asaf (WMF) (talk) 14:44, 18 March 2019 (UTC)
@Asaf (WMF) and Ijon: Simple question : How to install? https://benyehuda.org/~asaf/cite4wiki.xpi this link not working for download. Mozill page not working , https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cite4wiki/ Jayantanth (talk) 18:17, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
I have loaded it. But it is not working. I guess it is not working currently. because Nowadays extension is loaded by manifest.json which source does not have.--Jayprakash >>> Talk 18:29, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@Jayantanth: Okay, I have taken a look, and it seems Firefox has progressed too much in the six years since I made the Jetpack version (itself just an emergency rewrite to keep SMcCandlish's Cite4Wiki working), so Cite4Wiki NG isn't working either. Before I look for time to adapt it to modern Firefox requirements, can you say a little more on the need for this tool at this point? Doesn't Visual Editor solve this problem well? Asaf (WMF) (talk) 18:37, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
@Jayprakash: Thanks for reply. @Asaf (WMF):, I am not a user of VE, so I don't know the how to use this at VE. But the GUI of this addon was the best for me to add the citeweb refernece from a website.Jayantanth (talk) 12:56, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
Asaf (WMF) Ji, Will you work or I should create a small one extension?--Jayprakash >>> Talk 08:18, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Mass rename scriptEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

I need a Mass rename script which will support normal find & replace move and Regex based find & replace move. script should have following option (if possible):

  1. a field for copy-pasting pages
  2. an option for move without redirect (for sysop)
  3. an option for "Treat search string as a regular expression"

(Info: There are two script exist for mass rename. c:User:Legoktm/massrename.js & c:User:Perhelion/massrename.js. c:User:Legoktm/massrename.js works on bnwiki but this script doesn't support regular expression. c:User:Perhelion/massrename.js support regular expression but doesn't work on bnwiki.) --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 01:37, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Infobox settlement and its sub templates not working on Telugu WikiEdit

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

We imported infobox settlement from enwiki into Telugu Wiki. The automatic conversion for length,area does not appear. Even the units do not appear. As an example, the documentation pages w:Template:Infobox settlement/lengthdisp shows metric and imperial values, units in Template Output Column, while te:Template:Infobox settlement/lengthdisp shows just metric value.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 00:59, 14 April 2019 (UTC)

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.

Cropimage script is updated on Telugu Wikisource to fix problem with index files having unicode text. As I understand it is being used in Kannada and other wikipedias, making it a gadget will make it more manageable. --Arjunaraoc (talk) 04:56, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Arjunaraoc Ji, I remembered, I fixed two problems last year Indic-TechCom/Requests/IWCC2018#Image_Crop. Sorry, we were failed to notify the communities. You can compare the version. And can install as the gadget. Please remember to declare dependencies=jquery.ui.dialog in te:మీడియావికీ:Gadgets-definition, when installing :)--Jayprakash >>> Talk 08:08, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
@User:Jayprakash12345 Thanks for your response. Actually my question was to make it globally available like other scripts, so that it can be put under proper Version Control.--Arjunaraoc (talk) 03:50, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Select the area/column of image before start Indic OCREdit

Hi , @Jayprakash12345:, Could it be be possible to select the area of images to OCR a page? There are many books with double/triple column as well as images. So when we click on Indic OCR button to OCR, then there should be an option to full page ocr OR Select a zone of a images to OCR. Jayantanth (talk) 18:17, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks Jayantanth for the above request. I have been thinking for sometime about this and visited today to make a request. This will be useful for digitizing old magazines, encyclopaedias, which have multple columns of text. The user interface should be such that the OCR text is appended to the existing text. (Example page on Telugu Wikipedia). We already have cropimage tool, which allows selecting the part of the image, which can be made useof. --Arjunaraoc (talk) 07:13, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@@Arjunaraoc:, Thanks for your valuable comments. I think cropimage tool is not the solution. We have to think it in a different way, because GoogleOCR is not recongnised the column text at present. We have checked the Tecerract OCR which is column supported. But we havnt implemented in Indic Wikisource.Jayantanth (talk) 07:17, 26 October 2019 (UTC)

Citation template date validation localisation for tewikiEdit

When using citation templates imported from English Wikipedia in Telugu, date validation works for only only date month and year and fails for for other formats with only month and year. Citation templates are using Lua Module (https://te.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E0%B0%AE%E0%B0%BE%E0%B0%A1%E0%B1%8D%E0%B0%AF%E0%B1%82%E0%B0%B2%E0%B1%8D:Citation/CS1/Date_validation) which needs to be localised for Locale date formats. More than 1000 pages are affected by this (Link: https://te.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E0%B0%B5%E0%B0%B0%E0%B1%8D%E0%B0%97%E0%B0%82:CS1_errors:_dates )--Arjunaraoc (talk) 07:10, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
