Inappropriate removal of {{morefootnotes}} template[edit]

Thanks for creating Reflinks :)

In this edit, the {{morefootnotes}} template was removed inappropriately. According to the edit summary, that edit was made using Reflinks. Is this a known bug?

Please WP:MENTION me in your reply. Thanks! zazpot (talk) 22:36, 30 May 2017 (UTC)

As of today[edit]

Is the bot having problems today ? - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 13:52, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Afraid DNS's homenet.org domain server seems to be down. The web server is running and still serving user (running the old cache). — Dispenser 14:02, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
For me it seems to be working intermittently. I've been able to run articles through it, but can't do another one immediately afterwards. Instead I get the message "Sorry, the website dispenser.homenet.org cannot be found". This is Paul (talk) 18:16, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
Not working for me at the moment. DNS down again? EDIT: Just noticed the huge banner at the top of this page that says DNS is down. Never mind. :) B.Rossow · talk 14:05, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

Reflinks bug[edit]

For some reason, (maybe the DNS issue?) when I click on Reflinks in left margin, it takes me to this page. I thought maybe deleting it from common.js and putting it in vector.js would help, but it doesn't. I'm using the online tool which works great but was wondering if/when the sidebar tool will be up and operating. Thanks for all the great stuff you do!! Atsme📞📧 18:03, 11 September 2017 (UTC)

  • I think what you want is now located here. Guy1890 (talk) 07:16, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
Thank you, Guy1890 - I've been accessing the online tool in my bookmarks but my question to Dispenser was about the code (// Add WP:Reflinks launcher in the toolbox on left) which saves me from having to search through my bookmarks for the url. My browser favorites are already overflowing. It's possible he's transitioning from one host server to another, I don't know. Yep, it's a DNS issue. I love the toolbox access for Reflinks so hope he can get it operating again. Atsme📞📧 11:48, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

date format bug?[edit]

I don't use "Reflinks". But I've just encountered an edit that used it on a UK article. The article had (correctly) a {{Use dmy dates...}} at its start. But the insertions it made were of the form "date=yyyy-mm-dd" (and "accessdate=yyyy-mm-dd"), rather than the expected "date=dd Monthname yyyy". Might there be a bug?
