elwiktionary problem on mobile screens, when displaying English nouns


Hello, please see https://el.wiktionary.org/wiki/farm how it looks on a mobile screen. For my phone/browser it displays the word "ουσιαστικό" (=noun) vertically. I reported this to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T365322 (see print screens there) and they concluded:

  • in the phone that the user tried, it worked ok (while I tried two browsers on my phone and it had the same problem)
  • This needs fixing on the local wiki by editing its local content

Amazingly, this happens only for English nouns ! I suppose it is due to the el:wikt:template:ουσιαστικό, which is employing el:wikt:module:PartOfSpeech. This is as far as I can help. Thank you in advance. FocalPoint (talk) 08:13, 19 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

I replied on Phabricator: I believe it’s a bug in the Minerva Neue skin, not in your templates. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 09:50, 19 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
M Tacsipacsi, thank you for your immediate response. Probem (mobile view only, reported at https://imgur.com/a/Wxbn7dp) is with all tables-floating-right (languages are irrelevant) when they are over a Level3...etc with equal.symbols whether it includes text or a template. When we reduce width of browser the table suddenly jumps to left with a 100% width border. I am so sorry, that I do not know how to make the borders properly (because I do not know how to have flexible, non restrictive width). I have tried here
Example: https://el.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/farm or https://el.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/proper_noun with its border at https://el.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/Template:decl-sg-pl
I did the L3-titles-with-templates nobreak like at https://el.wiktionary.org/wiki/Template:ετυμολογία or at https://el.wiktionary.org/wiki/Module:PartOfSpeech (diff) but the border problem is at the table.styles. Also 2 examples at https://el.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/σοφία (2nd table's styles at https://el.wiktionary.org/wiki/Module:grc-nouns-decl#L-185 ) We do not have any interface admin, or any programmer around. If this cannot be fixed, mobile viewers could...?? zoom out? choose landscape view? Köszönöm again for your response at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T365322 Sarri.greek (talk) 10:34, 19 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
PS notifying MM AKlapper_(WMF), Jdlrobson, Tacsipacsi Concerning overall all floats at mobile (portrait) view @el.wiktionary (examples above), especially the problematic right floats discussued at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T365322 We have thousands of pages with such rightfloat tables. Would it be possible, to cancel right floats at all el.wiktionary for mobile view? Unfortunately our https://el.wiktionary.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css is archaic, and there is no interface administrator to apply any update. We thank you very much for your concern.

Alerte de connexion avec une nouvelle adresse IP


Hi there,

I received many alert messages about a connexion from a different ip address.

I have a question about this : 1°) Can the message language be written in the user's favorite language or bydefault in english. But not in italian.

2°) Can you attach to the message some data like date and hour of the connexion, and the IP address from the connexion.

Thank you for your attention. GPZ Anonymous (talk) 11:20, 28 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

Instance of User, string instead


Hi, I am creating a video permissions extension for my wiki. I keep getting this error and not sure how to go about fixing it. [81e16b69894234cb8a025ff0] /wiki/Special:Upload TypeError: Argument 2 passed to VideoPermissionsHooks::onUploadVerifyUpload() must be an instance of User, string given, called in /var/www/html/w/includes/HookContainer/HookContainer.php on line 338 Timmysworld (talk) 20:45, 29 May 2024 (UTC)Reply

I've (very) recently created an extension (CustomSearchProfiles), and put it up on the MediaWiki wiki. However, I use a git forge that's not Github, Gitlab, SourceForge, or Bitbucket. What template would I use to link to the source code repository? BlankEclair (talk) 08:01, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

@BlankEclair: you should ask this at mediawiki.org's Village pump. Legoktm (talk) 14:56, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

new account disappeared


I set up my first new account in GnuCash and I am so upset because after saving it several times, it deleted the entire account and I know have to start over. 17:09, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hi. You are in the wrong place. We have nothing to do with GnuCash. AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 17:45, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Full path to thumbnails in text


My site is version 1.40.1 and is in /var/www/html/site. Mediawiki and the images file is in /var/www/html/mediawiki-1.40.1. I have a symbolic link wiki->/var/www/html/mediawiki-1.40.1 in /var/www/html. My site httpd conf file includes the statement "Alias "/wiki" "/var/www/html/wiki"

When I upload an image the thumbnails are created properly under the images directory. When I try to display a thumbnail, using

File:Mass 6 12 2020.jpg
Massachusetts Covid-19 as of 6/12

the url for the image is given with the full file path: "https://site.org/var/www/html/wiki/images/thumb/4/45/Mass_6_12_2020.jpg/200px-Mass_6_12_2020.jpg"

I do not see why "/var/www/html" appears in this link? Without it I get the correct thumbnail. Any suggestions? Wbean43 (talk) 21:33, 5 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Change of license on WikiNews


Hi! I'm trying to coordinate that Wikinews upgrade license from cc-by-2.5 to cc-by-4.0 (n:Wikinews:Water_cooler/policy#Sum_up_per_march_2024). However, it is not easy to get other users involved and I think one reason is noone knows how to change.

So I hope it will be easier if I can tell each wiki that all they have to do is to edit these pages (and andd a list).

On English Wikinews I identified a number of pages to possibly change: n:Wikinews_talk:Copyright#Pages_to_update_when_license_is_updated_from_2.5_to_4.0. However on Polish Wikinews it seems that the setup is different per n:pl:Wikinews:Kawiarenka#Zmiana_licencji_-_Update_of_license_to_cc-by-4.0. (At the bottom it says "Content is available under Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 unless otherwise noted." meaning it is localized via TranslateWiki.

I also asked on wmf:Policy_talk:Terms_of_Use#Does_ToU_require_that_Wikiprojects_update_license? some time ago. But since deadline is getting near I try here too. MGA73 (talk) 07:16, 8 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

What deadline? (This isn't quite a technical question. The technical part is rather easy, the policy/legal side less so.) Nemo 09:03, 8 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Nemo The suggested deadline is currently August 1, 2024. I'm happy to hear it is easy to change. I hope it will be easier for each community to decide if I can tell them how to make the change and show them that it is quite easy. --MGA73 (talk) 12:13, 8 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Nemo If you have time to explain what to edit it would be very helpful. --MGA73 (talk) 15:54, 14 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
