@Htawmonzel If this about adding input methods, then see mw:Extension:UniversalLanguageSelector#Adding support for a new key mapping (input method). AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 20:52, 16 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dear @AKlapper (WMF),
Thank for your reply. Honestly, I am not a techniker and don't know much about it. I don't think it is just about input methods. I think we need to develop it. Htawmonzel (talk) 06:31, 17 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Edit NoticeEdit

I want to set an edit notice for category pages that start with "বিষয়শ্রেণী:বই:". (For example, বিষয়শ্রেণী:বই:হাঁস-মুরগি পালন and বিষয়শ্রেণী:বই:কোয়েল পালন) Is that possible? I have tried, but it didn't work. —MdsShakil (talk) 13:56, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don’t think it’s directly possible, but you could create b:bn:মিডিয়াউইকি:Editnotice-14 (which appears on all pages in the category namespace) with some parser function that determines whether {{PAGENAME}} starts with বই:, and output the edit notice only if it does. (It’s important not to output anything but whitespace otherwise, or the visual editor will show empty edit notices.) —Tacsipacsi (talk) 18:56, 1 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Tacsipacsi What kind of parser function can be used that determines whether {{PAGENAME}} starts with বই:? —MdsShakil (talk) 15:16, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@MdsShakil: You might try {{padleft:}} which is parser function-only, but harder to understand; or Scribunto, which can be more expressive for those who understand Lua, but people who don’t understand Lua will probably have no clue how it works. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 08:40, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I solved it via Lua module. —MdsShakil (talk) 20:07, 1 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Global blockingEdit

A range of Internet addresses that I usually use have been banned for reasons unrelated to me. But as a result, I lost the ability to edit Wikipedia. What should I do in this case? Dizenter (talk) 06:52, 7 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Global blocks/FAQ should help you. --Matěj Suchánek (talk) 08:05, 7 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Changing Category's font color when hoverEdit

Hello guys, I have a big issue, when i want to change the color of a category link with a model or an in line element, the category link remains blue and underligned. I've got the same problem when i am hovering it. I'm using a class that changes the color when the element is hovered but it doesn't work with category's link... (Works with everything else) I somehow found a way to do one out of two. I can either change the color when hovering or change the base color, but not both witch is what i want ahah. I'm using an extension witch adds CSS style sheets (Simple explanation)

My code :
Wikitext :

<templatestyles src="Template:Digital icone/styles.css" />
<ul  class="nav">
<li><p><p class="pitie">[[:Catégorie:TEXT | TEXT ]]</p></p></li>

My code :

.nav {
  text-transform: uppercase;
  text-align: center;
  font-weight: 600;

.nav * {
  box-sizing: border-box;
  transition: all .35s ease;

.nav li {
  display: inline-block;
  list-style: outside none none;
  margin: .5em 1em;

.nav p {
  padding: .5em .8em;
  color:  rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
  position: relative;
  text-decoration: none;
  font-size: 20px;

.nav p::before,
.nav p::after {
  content: '';''
  height: 14px;
  width: 14px;
  position: absolute;
  transition: all .35s ease;
  opacity: 0;

.nav p::before {
  content: '';''
  right: 0;
  top: 0;
  border-top: 3px solid #b22222;
  border-right: 3px solid #b22222;
  transform: translate(-100%, 50%);

.nav p:after {
  content: '';''
  left: 0;
  bottom: 0;
  border-bottom: 3px solid #b22222;
  border-left: 3px solid #b22222;
  transform: translate(100%, -50%)

.nav p:hover:before,
.nav p:hover:after{
  transform: translate(0,0);
  opacity: 1;

.nav p:hover {
  color: red;

.pitie :hover{
	color: red; 

If somebody has an idea or already encountered this problem, i would be glad to have a clue. Thanks for reading. 08:53, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Change the line that says .pitie :hover{ to .pitie:hover, .pitie:hover a {. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 09:36, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your help, but unfortunately it didn't solve the issue. Category's links remains blue when not hovered and colored when hovered. I am able to change the base color but then hover's properties doesn't work anymore.
I can't use href, or <img> etc... on my wiki for security (no external link). It's maybe part of the problem since i have to use Wiki's syntax for links.
Can the base color of links be modified in the global.css ? 09:14, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Requesting help to prepare global.cssEdit

I have weak technical knowledge, so I copied User Octahedron80 global.css to be able to use global.css, but I wanted to ask User Octahedron80 about global.css, but I think he's upset with me because I forbade him from mixing Thai-Mon and Mon-Burma vocabularies, but I think that he did not understand the content of the ban on mixing Thai-Mon and Mon-Burma words and became dissatisfied. The reason is that the Mon language has a depth of vocabulary that ordinary people don't know, and the Mon writing of Thai-Mon is very outdated, so I forbade Thai-Mon and Mon-Burma vocabulary to mix (If show me a proof of Mon writing=The Mon people call the Burmese people (Hamaeဟမာ) but Since the pronunciation of (Hamaeဟမာ) cannot be used in Mon literature, it will only be correct to write it as (Bamaeဗၟာ) in Mon literature) as I explained above, it is clear that not everyone knows how deep the Mon language is. My request for technical assistance is as follows, I just want to use the color Pink on my computer screen on the wiki, Please help me with this and edit global.css, thanks.--𝓓𝓻.𝓘𝓷𝓽𝓸𝓫𝓮𝓼𝓪|𝒯𝒶𝓁𝓀 10:55, 11 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@咽頭べさ: What part of the page do you want to be in pink? Jon Harald Søby (talk) 09:30, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I would like to use the Ladypinkilicious website form (Reason: as I am a member of NMB48, I want to use the wiki according to the symbol color of the NMB48 group) Please help me in this matter, I will never forget your kindness, thanks. 𝓓𝓻.𝓘𝓷𝓽𝓸𝓫𝓮𝓼𝓪|𝒯𝒶𝓁𝓀 13:33, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@咽頭べさ: It would take a lot of changes to make everything like that, unfortunately. But a start would be to add the following to your global.css:
body {
  background-color: #f9b8d7;

That doesn't work very well, Please see the photo and Please help, thanks.--𝓓𝓻.𝓘𝓷𝓽𝓸𝓫𝓮𝓼𝓪|𝒯𝒶𝓁𝓀 16:18, 21 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I was able to solve this problem, thank you very much for your help. 𝓓𝓻.𝓘𝓷𝓽𝓸𝓫𝓮𝓼𝓪|𝒯𝒶𝓁𝓀 13:55, 23 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Automatic citations based on ISBN are brokenEdit

Apologies if this message does not reach you in your favorite language. You can help translate it centrally at Meta. Thanks for your help.

We have recently become unable to access the WorldCat API which provided the ability to generate citations using ISBN numbers. The Wikimedia Foundation's Editing team is investigating several options to restore the functionality, but will need to disable ISBN citation generation for now.

This affects citations made with the VisualEditor Automatic tab, and the use of the citoid API in gadgets and user scripts, such as the autofill button on refToolbar. Please note that all the other automatic ways of generating citations, including via URL or DOI, are still available.

You can keep updated on the situation via Phabricator, or by reading the next issues of m:Tech News. If you know of any users or groups who rely heavily on this feature (for instance, someone who has an upcoming editathon), I'd appreciate it if you shared this update with them.

Empty template variablesEdit

Calling a template like this: {{Test|param=}}, where the template contains {{{param|default}}} results in an empty value, instead of "default" as expected. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?? - Erik Baas (talk) 00:52, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No, this is a feature. For example, it allows to distinguish if the parameter was provided empty or not at all. --Matěj Suchánek (talk) 10:15, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You can use {{#if:{{{param|}}}|{{{param}}}|default}} to get your desired behavior. Legoktm (talk) 15:12, 13 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I know, but I'm sure that's not the way it used to work! Where is this "feature" documented? - Erik Baas (talk) 13:32, 20 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm sure it is. See Help:Template#Parameters and mw:Help:Templates. --Matěj Suchánek (talk) 07:22, 21 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Very high replication lagEdit

The XTools edit counter writes: "Replication lag is high: changes newer than 2 days may not be shown". Is it normal? Hári Zalán (talk) 07:00, 27 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Hári Zalán: It's not normal, but it is known and being worked on. See T337446, it's going to take a few more days before its fixed. Legoktm (talk) 07:06, 27 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
