Ref supports2[edit]

Hi Makyen. Ref supports2 isn't working at the moment. Do you have any idea why that is? --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 06:01, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

@Anthonyhcole: I'm sorry to hear there is a problem. I should be able to take a look at it tonight. — Makyen (talk) 21:54, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks mate. I'm not really using it because it's not accessible to users of screen readers. But the issue of "What exactly does each citation support?" has come up twice in the last few days - User:Magnus Manske mentioned it on Wikimedia-l here and User:LeadSongDog brought it up here on Meta. I'd like that discussion to grow, if possible, and pointing to your solution makes it easier to explain the problem and visualise potential solutions. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 09:59, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
It is fixed. It was still working on the template documentation page because the copy in the page cache had not been updated. When I purged that page's cache it stopped working there. I have updated the {{Ref supports2}} template and verified it is now working on the pages which use it. If you find somewhere it is still not working, please tell me. I investigated to see what was modified to caused it to break. I suspect it was a change to the MediaWiki software that caused the problem as none of the code above that level had been modified more recently than October 2014. The change I made to {{Ref supports2}} results in it being more robust which should help prevent any additional modifications to the underlying software causing more problems. — Makyen (talk) 11:39, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
Yay! Thank you Makyen. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 12:25, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
Interesting, thank you. Commented at template talk:Ref supports2. LeadSongDog come howl! 22:01, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
