Yestersay was great, today it just hangs


my js file is at User:Timtrent/global.js and all ideas will be gratefully received. Timtrent (talk) 22:25, 16 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

Ans now, after several days of outage, it works again. Timtrent (talk) 11:08, 20 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

The Language Tool link under “See full page statistics” seems to assume it’s on the English Wikipedia, so fails to find pages from other projects. (I’ve only noticed this on Commons myself.) If the domain is currently hard-coded, can it be made to change according to project?—Odysseus1479 (talk) 07:57, 3 December 2014 (UTC)Reply



Hello Hedonil, I've seen a new DB technique from Wikimedia and would do draw attention for it. I mean this would be perfect for your tool: Research:Quarry!?User: Perhelion  18:47, 25 January 2015 (UTC)Reply

CSS class is too generic


The script loads the content from pages like

and this adds a style tag to the page, which changes any divs with class "menu" inside the page. This breaks other scripts which rely on such elements.

.... {
    min-width: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    top: 2.5em;
    left: -1px;
    background-color: white;
    border: solid 1px silver;
    border-top-width: 0;
    clear: both;
    text-align: left;
    display: none;

This affects at least en:Wikipedia:Labels, which uses the Wiki-Labels script. Helder 19:48, 20 May 2015 (UTC)Reply

Pageviews and page watchers not working


The pageviews and page watchers features have not worked for me for a long time. They just display a dash, like this: – Pageviews (30 days). Is anyone else having this problem? Can it be fixed? Many thanks. --Albany NY (talk) 13:08, 3 August 2015 (UTC)Reply

Same for me I'm afraid. It's still not working by now. --Charlik (talk) 17:38, 21 September 2015 (UTC)Reply

User script in Chrome


Since Google blocked the installation of extensions and scripts outside the Chrome Web Store, the method #3 is no longer working as described... it can still be done using the Tampermonkey extension, similarly to Greasemonkey on Firefox. --WikiKiwi 13:11, 23 November 2015 (UTC)Reply

Not working


I'm afraid it's not working for me in ending either. It just shows "maintenance". Can you please fix this? Tagging:@Hedonil: Yoshi24517 (talk) 21:46, 24 February 2016 (UTC)Reply

Same plain maintenance in grey - please fix it, it is such a useful tool ! :JarrahTree (talk) 14:17, 29 February 2016 (UTC)Reply

Yep, still not working.--Zygimantus (talk) 21:46, 7 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
it is very useful, please do something! :JarrahTree (talk) 05:23, 8 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
The problem is in API, look here - API. Maybe they are adding new features or something.--Zygimantus (talk) 06:48, 8 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
Could someone please resurrect this tool ? thank you :JarrahTree (talk) 01:31, 10 April 2016 (UTC)Reply
I also have this issue. --TerraCodes (talk) 14:02, 5 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
Same for me. Miss the tools so much. @Hedonil: how can we help you? --Sebastian Wallroth (talk) 09:11, 6 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
One small problem 2 years not here? :JarrahTree (talk) 07:20, 8 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
Dear friends, I have a temporary work-around for the issue. Important: I have tested it only on fawiki by now, but let me know if it is working for your language (Hoping soon I will try it on enwiki myself [if you don't!!]). You should adapt it to the language of the wiki you use, thus replacing with,, etc (One copy per wiki is sufficient though for all users wanting to try out - so inform your friends about your copy in your language that works preventing redundant copies untill I find the api to replace that automatically to your language) here it is, just modify the end of the 8th line in your copy.Alfa80 (talk) 10:04, 9 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
Thank you - it works again - much appreciate the effort!! thank you :JarrahTree (talk) 10:30, 9 August 2016 (UTC)Reply
You could also change the 8th line to: mw.loader.load("//" + mw.config.get('wgArticleId') + "&project=" + mw.config.get('wgServerName'));. Also it seems to work on enwiki. --TerraCodes (talk) 04:18, 15 August 2016 (UTC)Reply

source of reliability issues?


Hi there,

Thanks so much for this gadget. It's useful on a number of levels. I've noticed that it seems to go down semi-frequently. I'm just hoping to learn where in the chain the issue is, or if it's different each time? Does it go down when a certain other server goes down? Due to changes on the mediwiki end? Something else? Just curious -- not a criticism. Thanks again. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 21:41, 30 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
