  • Hey Fngplg. Could you edit this table on my Wikipedia user sandbox subpage so that when I narrow the browser window I can get the table to look like those 2 screenshot examples you provided in the forum thread?

    When I add the div, etc stuff you suggested I don't get the radical results you are getting. Right now there are no width settings on the table.

    I do some editing at Help:Table on Wikipedia, and will add useful info there. You can too, of course.

    • me personally have no idea how wikipedia works. try to ask on the forum, or on the wikipedia.

    • Wikipedia and Fandom both use Mediawiki software. You can create a username on Wikipedia with just a password. Totally anonymous.

      You can also edit my user sandbox without logging in.

  • My wiki needs major clean-up.

  • Hello! I’m a staff member of the AJPW Item Worth Wiki, and I recently changed my username and would like to have my customary color and shadow added back to my username. However as you can see my username has a "ï" , which seems to be preventing the code from working. I saw you were able to solve a similar problem for another user so I was hoping you could help me. The admins are having a problem putting in my code, we have been putting in this code: 

    /*D%C3%AFzney_AJ*/

    /*Username Color*/

    a[href$=": D%C3%AFzney_AJ"],

    a[href$="/D%C3%AFzney_AJ"]

    { color: #FFFF66 !important;

    font-family: Harvest !important;

    font-weight: Bold !important;

    font-size: 11px;

    text-shadow: 0px 6px 6px #;#FFFFFF


    And nothing has been working. Is there anything we have been doing wrong with the code? Is it my user because of my special character? Can you please help to fix this, Thanks in advance!

  • Thread:1822538#9

    I am moving the conversation here so that it doesn't derail the other thread too much if this discussion continues.

    I am aware that if you don't know which is which then you need iterate but sometimes that doesn't matter. Knowing which is which only matters if you are trying to traverse them in a certain order or access a specific one but not the others. In that case, if you happen to already have the pageid, then the keys are helpful. However, there are at least just as many ways to get the response object without knowing pageids; so you need to extract them from the object. Then if order doesn't matter, you still need to extract the keys to access the data. I guess the way I see it is that using pageids as the keys is useful in some situations but there are just as many if not more in which using an array makes more sense.

    So perhaps the API designers had a specific use case in mind and using pageids as keys makes sense for that. Okay, fine. At least that reason is better than "why not?". I would also like to point out that I said "site/program". I am green when it comes to websites but I have worked with a lot of code for scientific analysis for a while. For some reason, in that community, people still like using objects over arrays when it makes no sense at all. Perhaps that isn't the case for the web devs and I am just incorrectly transferring my knowledge about how JSONs are used in one field to a different field.

      At least that reason is better than "why not?"

      for a programmer, "why not?" includes future uses and changes: you have some data to return, you can use different types for the return value (plain obj or array) and you have to decide what type you will use. if you have suspicion that the return value will be changed (expanded, keys added, etc), then you will use most flexible type, that will allow to you to do more changes and leave consumers untouched simultaneously.

      associative arrays, objects and other key-value based collections are no-brainers in most cases: if you can use friendly names, you will use them; named lists has so much pros, that even if you don't have particular reasons to use them, eventually, somebody will find a way to enjoy them.

  • Do you recall this discussion? I am wondering when that change to @import was reverted because it doesn't seem to be working anymore. I tried asking the general community (here) but everyone else are denying that such a change was ever made in the first place. I could swear the change did happen but, since I don't know the back end as well as you and KockaAdmiralac, that discussion is the only thing I have to make my case.

    • lua console, that shown at the bottom of the page, when you enter edit mode.

      and no, i did not copy the module. you can edit module, then execute module function via console, without saving the module. it's like preview, just slightly more complicated.

        Loading editor
    • Oh. Okay. Thanks for clarifying. As you can probably tell, my experience with Lua is little to none.

  • Thread:1744034

    So, do you think that would be the case? That some VE bugs will be "automatically" solved just due to the MediaWiki update? The specific issue in the thread I linked to is that VE cannot roperly insert cells into an HTML table.

      Loading editor
    • i have no specific info about upcoming updates, so i can't say whether it will be solved. i do see 2 ways to solve the problem: 1) fix the bug in the ve; 2) drop this homebrew ve upon the migration and use ve from mediawiki.

      since the "automatically" word was used, i'd assume 2nd option: current ve will be changed to wikipedia-like one.

    • I see. It wasn't clear to me how it would be "automatically" fixed so I thought I would ask someone who might know a bit more. However, apparently you aren't too sure either. Thanks for the info.

  • Your response on Character Category Page 2 won't allow me to respond, but I'm wanting to ask how to make the list alphabetical. I didn't use the one you suggested, but there was another on the page that I did use.

    <table><forum>
    category=CategoryName
    parameter1=value
    parameter2=value
    </forum></table>

    I also need to put buttons on it so that it can go to the next set of names, but also be allowed to go back.

  • Do you mind taking over this thread? I have a feeling something is getting lost in translation. Either that or there is a lot more to Viber than the easily accessible English pages are telling me.

    • they had an answer on ru.cc already, 3 and 4 weeks ago. it is pointless to add a channel in widget-like manner, because of specifics: all links leads to "download viber" page, but not to the channel itself. fully-functional integration would be against tou (smth about sending data to 3rd party). it is possible to create link to the channel (they have declined this option).

      i have no idea why they are bringing it up here. i'd rather not participate in the thread: i don't feel like to repeat myself at 3rd time.

        Loading editor
    • Okay then. Thanks for letting me know. I was, for obvious reasons, completely unaware they had already brought this up weeks ago on the Russian CC.
