something wrong in a module of Hakka wikipediaEdit

I have copied a module from Min Nan wikipedia (zh-min-nan:Module:Authority control) to Hakka wikipedia (hak:Module:Authority control), but it seems doesn't work. See hak:Template:Authority control, it says: "Lua error in Module:HtmlBuilder 92 lines: Tried to write global getAttr". can someone help me fix it?--el caballero de los Leones (talk) 10:40, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

@唐吉訶德的侍從: hak:Module:Navbox and hak:Module:Navbar needed to be updated. However, some new texts appeared in the English version since last copying, so these are still in English (I’ve marked them by adding a -- TODO translate before them, which can be safely removed in its entirety after translating), while other texts use Chinese characters; you may want to use Latin instead. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 12:52, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much!--el caballero de los Leones (talk) 16:45, 28 July 2019 (UTC)


Feature could be useful to add : running on mobile version, the watchlist only displays conventionnal pages (articles). Yhe talk pages and the help pages are not in sight. So you cannot withdraw them easily from your list. Apoart from that, the design is very nice on mobile version. 20:46, 5 August 2019 (UTC) Le Vernaculaire Post Scriptm : I've got an English account but I mostly contribute over french wiki

multiple issues in Hakka wikipediaEdit

There are multiple issues in Hakka wikipedia. Let's see the page hak:Liû Tet-fà, it looks ugly:

  1. First, the template {{Infobox}} should have a frame and float to right just like its English version.
  2. Second, the template {{Navbox}} should have a "show/hide" botton just like its English version. In Hakka, " hién-sṳ " = show, " yún-chhòng " = hide.--el caballero de los Leones (talk) 12:24, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
@唐吉訶德的侍從: Fixed both. The navbox toggle links don’t use your translations but already existing translations from (translatewiki:MediaWiki:Collapsible-expand/hak and translatewiki:MediaWiki:Collapsible-collapse/hak). Feel free to correct them if they’re wrong, but please note that you need a separate account to change translations on Translatewiki. Also I noticed that the collapse text is broken into two lines for me. This is because of the rule in hak:MediaWiki:Common.css, line 266 (you can see line numbers if you click on the “Khon ngièn-sṳ́-mâ” tab). Probably a bit larger number is needed for Hakka text (8em looks good for me), but you need to ask for help at Steward requests/Miscellaneous for steward help to change it as only stewards and interface administrators can modify Common.css (see Interface administrators for explanation), and currently there are no interface admins on Hakka Wikipedia. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 22:29, 10 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks a lot!--el caballero de los Leones (talk) 10:56, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

Abuse FilterEdit

Does anyone know the process to enable abuse filter having the ability to block editors on a project? Thanks, Vermont (talk) 22:49, 3 September 2019 (UTC)

The project would need to have consensus for such a change, and then file a phab ticket. [1]. Killiondude (talk) 03:47, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Out of interestEdit

Hi, Just out of interest, with your Tech News, how are you adding in news from the future if you know what I mean? [Do you have some sort of contract].

Cheers, Beeney :)

@Beeney xx: Hi, what do you mean by "news from the future" ? Examples always help!
You can read more about Tech News at Tech/News, which might answer your questions. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 19:33, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Well on this talk page is states 2019-36 for example? What does the 36 represent?

somthing wrong in a template of Hakka wikipediaEdit

The template hak:模板:Infobox officeholder looks ugly. Let's see the article hak:Chhai Yîn-vùn, why it looks quite different from en:Tsai Ing-wen? can someone fix it?--el caballero de los Leones (talk) 12:33, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

Issue on sc.wikipedia and WikidataEdit

Hi, I'm a sysop on and a user told me that he repeatedly had problems with Wikidata. After creating a new article, when he tries to add links to other languages, he sometimes receives this message:

Error: $ 1.

You need to carry out this action.

This page has been protected to prevent editing or other actions.

And then he can't continue. If, instead, I try to do the same, there is no problem. The last time it happened the article was this one: sc:Asteròide. I asked him if he was using a VPN and he said he wasn't, so what could be the problem?--L2212 (talk) 17:09, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

No mysteries here: the page is semiprotected on Wikidata and sadly 50 edits are required to become autoconfirmed on Wikidata, but the user only has 10. The "confirmed" permission can be asked at wikidata:Wikidata:Requests_for_permissions. Nemo 18:50, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
Ah, ok! Thank you very much, I'll let him know!--L2212 (talk) 09:46, 18 September 2019 (UTC)


I don't know since when, but {{Usertalkback}} used to align @ center but now aligns at the left to me. screenshot

Problems with editnotice (Group notice / Page notice)Edit

Please see [2]. I can see and edit a page notice if it has already been edited, but not if it hasn't. I am an admin on I have changed browsers and cleared cookies, and switched to my mobile, etc, none of these resolve the problem for me. I'm not sure if the problem is peculiar to my account. I have removed (and then replaced) all the scripts I have. Any suggestions? SilkTork (talk) 18:58, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Reverting the new "collapsed search interface" on Special:ContribsEdit

How do I disable the "collapsed" search interface on Special:Contribs? On group1 wikis, I see this but on group2 I see this. As part of my S work I frequently keep one Contribs tab open and keep searching the contribs on and on and on and the idea that I have to make an extra one click is horrible (at best). I have locked 424 accounts in 2019, and this new feature means I have to click 423 more times to complete my job. JavaScript, pref config, whatever, I want to stop this insanity. — regards, Revi 07:32, 3 October 2019 (UTC)

Offending commit was phab:rMW275b77452adeff8f6e4cac5bef416e2824998e9c (ticket phab:T191868). — regards, Revi 07:39, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
Hi Revi, a very quick solution would be to add .mw-special-Contributions { display: block !important; } to your common.css --Volker E. (WMF) (talk) 07:55, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
I've also added .mw-special-Contributions .oo-ui-fieldsetLayout-header { display: none !important; } to hide the "Search for contributions" header. stwalkerster (talk) 22:14, 3 October 2019 (UTC) Edited to add missing !important stwalkerster (talk) 22:17, 3 October 2019 (UTC)
Please note, that a “pinning” functionality is discussed for users, who want the form always collapsed in phab:T234569. --Volker E. (WMF) (talk) 03:42, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

Disable Tagger script for a particular projectEdit

Hello, I've installed Tagger script on my global.js. Would you mind helping me to disable the script for a particular project (Such as enwiki or commonswiki only)? Thank you for your time! Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 04:58, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

See the bottom of my global.js for what I do. I think this should work for you:
// This tool can tag pages with a few clicks (which is much faster than editing the whole page per Hand).
// by [[m:user:Hoo man]] <>
if ( $.inArray( mw.config.get("wgDBname"), ['excluded_dbname1', 'excluded_dbname2', '...'] ) === -1 ) {

Yes, it worked. Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 16:31, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
