Disappearance of check boxes at top[edit]

Why have the set of check boxes disappeared at the top? I don't understand. It contains "Use non-admin rollback", "ignore my edits", "ignore safe pages" etc. Under my account at least, I don't see it. I cannot revert without selecting those check boxes. (non admin rollback). — Andy W. (talk/contrb.) 15:14, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Same for me. I'm using IE7 and the previous edit works fine. I've tried debugging the new version (in my user space) but I didn't get the checkboxes or button to appear.
(Debugging detail:
  • I tried using 'bottom' location because the monitoring stuff works fine, even though it seems to use the same routines.
  • I removed the Top Edit tool in case it was causing the problem -- where is nextSibling of H1?
  • Otherwise I just used alerts to see if there were any errors, etc.)
Also, using <br /> instead of <p> in recent2.doLine means the extra line that is left over after showing and hiding details goes away, as I've mentioned previously. Mark Hurd 13:21, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
Just confirming the latest edits have fixed the checkboxes for me on IE7 (although they have a white background, not the monobook book background). (I'm still copying the script into my user space to affect the change of p to br as mentioned above.) Mark Hurd 19:26, 15 June 2007 (UTC)

twinkle[edit]

will this tool conflict with TWINKLE? -007bond aka Matthew G aka codingmasters 01:26, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Why? Twinkle uses some questionable programming techniques that may brake other scripts and its author has been contacted. Cacycle 13:06, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
I actually recommend using it with twinkle. The two together are extremely efficient. J-stan Talk 16:58, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
I use TW for AIV reports and if I have to use a warning other than uw-vand or uw-test. They work good. —Coastergeekperson04's talk@12/10/2007 05:14

How?[edit]

When hit "edit this page" on the vandal page (just to view it's source and see how it works) I saw no script. Is this scrip programmed in the js page? Coastergeekperson04 19:12, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

See User:Lupin/recent2.js. Cacycle 03:17, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

watchlist[edit]

The watchlist monitoring function just stopped working for me, in that it continues to "update", but shows no activity, even though the static watchlist does. Help would be greatly appreciated, TewfikTalk 19:15, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

I've noticed this as well. (I'm using Firefox 2.0.4, BTW.) --Ckatzchatspy 22:24, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Experiencing this on Firefox 2.0.0.4 as well. --24fan24 (talk) 22:57, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
Any progress on this? TewfikTalk 07:13, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
I've tried to fix this. I'm not sure if it's worked, though... please test and let me know. Lupin|talk|popups 19:58, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
Seems to be working for me now. Thank you! --24fan24 (talk) 04:23, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Not in Toolbox[edit]

The Lupin features don't appear in my toolbox. Anyone else having this problem? Ryan(talk/contribs) 05:23, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Created an image for the AVT[edit]

For anyone that wants to know, I uploaded an image I created for the AVT.

Image:Lupin's Anti-Vandal tool 1.png

I do plan to userbox this soon. Yes, it's supposed to look hand-drawn. The background was made to mimic the readout format of the real tool.

Rollback admin[edit]

Hola. He copiado la última versión de este módulo y a pesar de ello veo que el rollback directo para admins no funciona. Podrian revisarlo?. Saludos y gracias de antemano. --Axxgreazz (consultas?) 03:14, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Template:X1[edit]

If I've ticked both boxes for watching the Template namespace and excluding safe pages, shouldn't Template:X1 be excluded? Philip Trueman 10:53, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Filter Recent Changes[edit]

The filter bit is working, but whenever it ID's a match, it lists it as punctuation. (Ie, matching ...{{{{). Odd... anyone else see this? --Bfigura (talk) 22:13, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Yep, you're not alone. I brought it up on Lupin's main talk page too. ~Eliz81(C) 04:28, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

(outdent)UPDATE:The problem has been fixed. ~Eliz81(C) 03:11, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Non-admin Rollback[edit]

Heck, this is one annoying problem I have: I can automatically warn vandals, but cannot roll back as I am invited to, even though I'm using the non-admin rollback! It states I need the popup tool for auto-edit functionality, but there is no change when I add it and try again! INFO: I am using Internet Explorer 7, on Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. Thanks in advance, M1N 16:56, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

I have exactly the same problem, I am using Safari 2.0.4, on Mac OS X Tiger 11:25, 2 November 2007 (UTC)Harland1

Help[edit]

I have installed Lupin but I am slightly confused as to how to use it, when I click on filter recent changes I get something that says updating and when it has finshed it doesn't give a list so how can I revert them? Also if I click on All recent changes then I get a list of changes but there is istll no button to click on to revert them. Can anyone help me out of my stupidity please? Harland1 10:26, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

It doesent fix spelling errors[edit]

Great, it can find them, but it doesent fix them.

I looked at an article it read and found errors on 5 minutes ago, and the error was still there.

I don't know if its supposed to only report, but it would be nice if it could "talk" to anohter bot, and have the toher bot fix the errors.

Sure it does. Try using Mozilla Firefox, perhaps? Xiong Chiamiov :: contact :: 05:56, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Re:Help[edit]

I have discovered the problem: it doesn't work on Safari or Internet Explorer. Harland1 16:21, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

As is the problem with many scripts, the makers of web browsers tend to ignore the guidelines the W3C has set down. Since this is a completely volunteer project and most users use Mozilla Firefox, that is the only one it has been tested on (I'm speculating). Of course, if you have some knowledge of JavaScript and are brave, you can dive on in and help Lupin out! Xiong Chiamiov :: contact :: 05:54, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Twinkle compatiblity?[edit]

I use Twinkle, can I use your Anti-vandal tool with it? Dalekusa 16:38, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

AFAIK, it's perfectly alright. Xiong Chiamiov :: contact :: 05:48, 14 November 2007 (UTC)

Warnings[edit]

I'm having the same problems these guys were having from way back when. Was this ever fixed? I'm also using IE6 from Windows XP. The warning template just never shows up, I have to do that manually. --SGT Tex 19:18, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

'&' in article title[edit]

I think there's a problem when attempting non-admin rollback of an edit to a page whose title contains an ampersand. I've just tried to revert an edit to Merck & Co., and the rollback was aborted with a message that the article had been changed since the vandal, by User:VVVBot. Not true, but VVVBot is the last editor of Merck. Now, I think I should come clean and admit that I'm running with a modified version of AVT, but I haven't changed this bit. Philip Trueman (talk) 15:08, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Just had the same experience at Deere & Company. Philip Trueman (talk) 14:54, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

All edits showing[edit]

When this happens, and refreshing/closing my browser doesn't correct it, what can I do? By all edits I mean literally, apparently all, with no filtering. • Lawrence Cohen 16:42, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

"Revert" button does not revert[edit]

When I'm monitoring the recent IP edits, I click "rollback" to effect a non-admin rollback, but instead of reverting I get a new window with the diff showing. This also occurs if I click "history" or "last" or even the name of the article itself. I do have "Use non-admin rollback" checked and I haven't changed any settings anywhere since I last used the Anti-vandal tool successfully. ... discospinster talk 03:03, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

  • I can confirm this one. Roll-back simply takes me to the diff instead of rolling back automatically. Similar to the previous user i didnt change any settings, and it appears that the lupin scripts havent been updated today. Perhaps this is a wikipedia problem? (EG: Preventing malicious rollback?) --Excirial (Talk,Contribs) 07:39, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
It's not just the revert button. Also the (last) and (hist) options take you to the highlighted diff, instead of either the most recent edit or the article history. I think something's wrong with the tool. ~Eliz81(C) 07:58, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
Also per this, is anyone else having problems with the "unchanged after four updates" option still picking up diffs that were reverted right away? ~Eliz81(C) 08:25, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Rollback[edit]

It used to be that when I hit rollback, it would immediately rollback the page. Recently it has taken me to the diff page and I have had to hit rollback from there. Do you know what the issue is? I am using TW with Lupin.--Jab843 (talk) 17:56, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

I am having the same issue, and I am using non-admin rollback. I am using firefox. Funnyfarmofdoom (talk) 22:45, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Rollback Temporal fix (NON OFFICIAL!)[edit]

Ok, for everyone here who has this problem, there is a Temporal Fix available(Non official though!). Out colleague reverter Philip Trueman uses a modified version of Lupin, which can be found here: User:Philip_Trueman/recent2.js. This versions rollback button still functions as intended, along with the other buttons. Philip notes that his version might contain bugs and might not always work, but so far i have encountered nothing that prevented me from reverting. It might not be a perfect solution, but at least it works.

One little addition: don't go bugging Philip if you find bugs. He doesnt know its posted here, and remember that usage is at your own risk, so no complaints either please! --Excirial (Talk,Contribs) 08:45, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for that, Excirial. My version also stopped working yesterday - it looks as though the RSS feed for Special:Recentchanges now puts some extra stuff on the end of the string holding the article title, and that was feeding in to the URLs for rollback and so forth. It took me a while to sort it out.
This is not the first time this sort of thing has happened. Can anyone say where the developers document functional changes like these? I think we should have been told in advance.
Lupin is of course welcome to help himself to my code if he wishes. In the meantime, I'm happy for anyone who wishes to use my version. Constructive criticism at User talk:Philip Trueman/PILT please. Philip Trueman (talk) 11:58, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
I have fixed Lupin/Anti-vandal tool. I have also added some ideas from Philip Trueman - it is now possible to hide admin (= trusted) edits. Other ideas from his script do not really work afaiks, e.g. one cannot detect bots running by checking recent changes as these are not listed. Cacycle (talk) 04:52, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
I've only just seen this (darn!). Anti-vandal bots tend not to run botflagged, so that their edits can be reviewed. Only botflagged edits are excluded from the RSS feed of Recentchanges. So it works - except that ClueBot has been AWOL a lot recently. Philip Trueman (talk) 18:37, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Customization[edit]

I know it's possible, but I don't know if you can do it. What I am thinking of is to be able to customize the feed colors. So for example, I want the feeds blue. I know I can make my own script and just edit the script (I know what I am doing) but how about a customizing page, so like Special:MyPage/avtconfig will have a list of options, and it can be edited with a box like TW or something. —Coastergeekperson04's talk@12/07/2007 22:27
