MediaWiki talk:Edittools

By adding one of the following codes to the .css file of whatever skin you are using, certain parts of the edit tools can be turned on or off

function default code to change from default
Copyright warning On #editpage-copywarn {display:none}
Special characters Off (monobook) #editpage-specialchars {display:block}
Special characters On (others) #editpage-specialchars {display:none}

Can we make it turn-offable?

On the English Wikipedia, the copyright warning can be turned off for individual users who edit their own monobook.css. (See en:MediaWiki:Edittools and en:MediaWiki talk:Edittools to see how it's done) Can we have the same functionality here? Basically, just put the following at the beginning: <div id="editpage-copywarn"> and the following at the end: </div> and then any editor can put #editpage-copywarn {display:none} in their monobook.css to turn the warning off.

Some minor changes

There is currently a giant gap between the submit form and 'When you click "Save page", your changes will be made right away!', because of the extra line break between the opening comment (<!-- Text here will be shown below edit and upload forms. -->) and the beginning of the paragraph. Please remove this space. Also, the "$1" parameter in '*Any writing you send to Wikipedia is legally released under the GNU Free Documentation License (see $1 for details).' doesn't seem to be working correctly.

Please change the reference to the GNU FDL to also mention CC-BY-SA. NuclearWarfare (talk) 16:07, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

18px Done Let me know if you'd like me to change it in another way (I've altered it to match the other copyright notice... now they pretty much say the same thing). EhJJTALK 19:43, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Where are the characters?

{{editprotected}} Please update the software. When I hit the "change this page" tab at the top of the page and view the edit window, I can't use any of the characters. :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 15:39, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

It's nothing to do with this page; they work fine for me. PeterSymonds (talk) 15:41, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Funny. I can't even see any of these characters (Ǎ ǎ Č č Ď ď Ě ě Ǐ ǐ Ľ ľ Ň ň Ǒ ǒ Ř ř Š š Ť ť Ǔ ǔ Ž ž) on this very mediawiki page. :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 15:49, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
You may need to change the font used by your internet browser. I have no problems viewing or editing this page. EhJJTALK 18:01, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
How come I can see them clearly on the en side of the page? :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 18:15, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Its part of your own settings. Nothing we can change. -DJSasso (talk) 18:25, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Problem with REDIRECT

When I click #REDIRECT [[]] in edit mode, #REDIRECT and [[]] are getting inserted separately. Shouldn't that need to be corrected?···Vanischenu「m/Talk」 14:54, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

Hmmm... Do you mean that you have to click them separately to insert each, rather than it all being one button? They should be getting inserted together; from what I can see they're inside the same set of HTML code tags. It might be a compatibility issue. I can't tell if it works on my edit, because I have the JavaScript version enabled. Osiris (talk) 15:28, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
Yes, yes, I meant I have to click them separately to insert each, rather than it all being one button. I looked in both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, logged out and logged in. The problem is there.···Vanischenu「m/Talk」 16:10, 15 December 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure what to suggest then. I don't know how to fix that. Osiris (talk) 04:23, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
In contrast to that of simple. (which uses #REDIRECT&#32;[[+]])
  • ml., it. and es. uses #REDIRECT[[+]].
  • commons uses #REDIRECT[[+]] like ml. and es.
  • nn and fr. #OMDIRIGER[[+]] and #REDIRECTION[[+]] respectively.
  • da uses #REDIRECT [[+]] but does not have any problem
  • enwp OTOH have a .js page! So does de
en.Wikivoyage and ta.wikipedia use the same as simple.wp, i.e., #REDIRECT&#32;[[+]], and I have the same results there as in here. I would like to know if this happens only for me. And please don't take this as an edit request as I am not sure if this is a real problem. Thank you.···Vanischenu「m/Talk」 15:04, 17 December 2012 (UTC)
I've removed the control character. See if this fixes it. If not, I'll change it back. Osiris (talk) 08:11, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
Yes, it is now fixed. Now both of them get entered together. Thank you!···Vanischenu「m/Talk」 09:52, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
