I’m really missing this feature. It’d be great to know what my wiki’s audience is seeing most often, and to know which pages we should prioritize.
What's on your mind?
While messaging another user (on my wiki which is UCP-migrated) I noticed that basic wikitext functions, like <nowiki> or [[linking]] no longer work on my wiki. Is there a way to re-enable these functions on message walls?
Well, it finally happened. My wiki was migrated to UCP today. As such, I noticed a new panel on Special:Analytics. It shows new v. returning users. Is that new for everyone or just because of UCP? I am admin on another UCP wiki and hadn't noticed the panel before. Then again, I wasn't paying much attention either.
Another thing, I noticed that the /api/v1 endpoint for getting WAM scores is down even though /wiki/WAM is still working. Anyone know what is up with that?
Can you guys please change this new editor. It's frickin' awful. I missed the old one.
I sometimes switch to visual editors to edit text with more complicated layouts. However, I found that the reference editing feature lacks some capabilities available in source mode:
Edit the name of that reference (which is essential for reusing references)
Placing reference in the <references> block. The separation of reference and page content allows easier maintenance.
Some UI suggestions:
I also have some suggestions for creating the <references> block if there isn't one:
If a <references> block does not exist and you want to create one for the general group, place it at the end of the article, and right before the category links which typically appear at the end.
If a <references> block of a specific group does not exist, place it at the end of the current section being edited.
My account is getting flooded with upvotes from post i made on a wiki
So upvotebots are things now keeping notifications past 50
The current discussions format makes it so that only 10 replies can be seen at any given time, and you have to click on "view older replies" in order to get an additional 10 replies on the screen. There are a lot of discussions that have hundreds of replies on them on the wiki's that I edit on, and having to click "view older replies" again and again just to get to the beginning is annoying.
There also plenty of bugs that come with clicking "view older replies" multiple times. Sometimes it will get to a point where the page will refuse to load any more replies, and I have to refresh the page and start again. Or, if I click on "view older replies" too quickly, it will load multiple copies of the same reply and break the discussions thread, and I once again have to reload the page and start again. This is a massive headache that was not an issue on the previous forums.
I feel like there should be an option to load all of the replies on the page instead of forcing people to click "view older replies" again and again and hope the page can handle those inputs. If not, the bugs with loading older replies should at least be addressed.
...that the official UCP wiki's source edit has the same layout as the legacy one, only the User Interface that were changed.
Recently my wiki was been moved to the updated model for editing. Originally it had the basic Visual Editor like this:
My problem with the new visual editor is it doesn't give an actual visual representation of what my page will actually look like. It's very clunky and it splays out all the info, unlike the previous model which showed me what the actual page would look like.
I'm no web designer, but the fact that the page is now so unrealistic and just hard to edit with is annoying. I'm not trying to get you guys to change anything of course, but is there any way I can use the previous visual editor for my own wiki when I edit?
I have been using Fandom for nearing 7 years (this account in particular was created in 2016, but my first was created in 2014). Fandom is the only website I've ever used that when I IP ban someone, it only gives their new alt-accounts a 24hr ban, that I cannot change the duration of or tell what their alt-account is. This is extremely frustrating, especially for dealing with major rule-breakers. Is there any reason why Fandom functions this way? I would appreciate at the very least being able to change the alt-account's ban duration.
I'm also aware that multiple people can have the same IP, but the few cases where someone on the same IP would be effected are worth it rather than letting dangerous people roam around your wiki.
No idea if there's a suggestions category honestly so I'm just assuming this is the closest category to one.
It would be really helpful if, after reaching the max amount of pages allowed in a tab of the top navigation (7, I believe), a scroll bar was added to that tab so you could scroll down to see more pages in it. Currently, if you go above the limit of 7 pages, the extra pages added just don't appear, which is a bit of a problem in my case:
I'm an editor for a wiki for a game (The Tower Unite wiki, specifically) that's split into 3 main parts, one of which (Game Worlds) is a set of 10 games complex enough to have their own sets of pages for their features and maps. So, as the amount of games (10) goes over the limit for pages in a top navigation tab (7), I can't really represent them all equally: I wanted to have each game have a sub-tab showing its features and maps, but because of the limit, I have to set aside one of the pages in the tab to just being a "More" sub-tab so I can even show the remaining 4 games at all.
It would be a big help if a scroll bar was added so I could show each of these games equally in the top navigation without having the top navigation itself become any larger than it already is. I'm not sure if this is anything worth adding, since it'd likely only be useful for my wiki and maybe a handful of others, but I'd still really appreciate if it was added nonetheless.
(I wrote this at 3 am so sorry if any of this doesn't make any sense)
Neat, I guess. But it got to remove the "Drop Files Here" button, because you cannot upload files in code editor, let alone in CSS interface.
When you start posting a bad post on a wiki, it will say like " Sorry can't post because its bad" or something like that
Someone could have broken a rule then edited it out
Ive been insulted cause i saw it before the edit and when i reported it to the admins it was already edited then everyone bashed me for "lying"

So, there's anonymous users on our wiki (We're not going to get rid of them as a whole, though), but some of them are vandalising and stuff, so can you please add anonymous user user pages back please?
Not sure where to put this. but it is a suggestion that should be considered. allow the user who made the thread to see votes without having to vote.
Before my wiki transitioned to UCP, I made frequent use of the "Most Popular Pages" feature under Special:Insights in order to prioritize pages for improvement.
Currently, I can only see the number of page views for the top 10 pages under Wiki Analytics. However, I've found that the low-hanging fruit tends to be in the top 50 or 100 pages, not the top 10.
Please consider expanding this or adding new features to help with this in the future. (Thanks!)
