"Attention and activity lead to mistakes as well as to successes; but a life spent making mistakes
is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing." – George Bernard Shaw

Place the cursor where you want to display the references list (usually at the bottom of the page). Open the "Insert" menu and click the "References list" icon (three books).
If you are using several groups of references, which is relatively rare, you will have the opportunity to specify the group. If you do that, then only the references that belong to the specified group will be displayed in this list of references.
Finally, click "Insert" in the dialog to insert the References list. This list will change as you add more footnotes to the page.
You can read and help translate the user guide, which has more information about how to use the visual editor.
Since the last newsletter, the VisualEditor team has fixed many bugs. Their workboard is available in Phabricator. Their current priorities are improving support for Arabic and Indic scripts, and adapting the visual editor to the needs of the Wikivoyages and Wikisources.
The visual editor is now available to all users at most Wikivoyages. It was also enabled for all contributors at the French Wikinews.
The single edit tab feature combines the "Edit" and "Edit source" tabs into a single "Edit" tab. It has been deployed to several Wikipedias, including Hungarian, Polish, English and Japanese Wikipedias, as well as to all Wikivoyages. At these wikis, you can change your settings for this feature in the "Editing" tab of Special:Preferences. The team is now reviewing the feedback and considering ways to improve the design before rolling it out to more people.
The team is working with the volunteer developers who power Wikisource to provide the visual editor there, for opt-in testing right now and eventually for all users. (T138966)
The team is working on a modern wikitext editor. It will look like the visual editor, and be able to use the citoid service and other modern tools. This new editing system may become available as a Beta Feature on desktop devices around September 2016. You can read about this project in a general status update on the Wikimedia mailing list.
Learn how to improve the "automagical" citoid referencing system in the visual editor, by creating Zotero translators for popular sources in your language! Watch the Tech Talk by Sebastian Karcher for more information.

Why an encyclopeiac template has a piece of chinese text The Classic of Rites was one of the Five Classics of Confucianism; it described social forms, ancient rites, and court ceremonies. - which in the strictest sense is not literature at all - but a chinese cultural and philosophical text... any thoughts ?
- I am mystified as to why someone would use something like that...
Any clues where to suggestst a replacement image that is not so removed from what it actually represents?JarrahTree 09:37, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi, @JarrahTree:, it would help if you linked to the template (?) you are asking about.
It searched for that text and could not find it. Possibly you are talking about the "Description" text in the image File:Liji2.jpg itself? - That description is written on Commons (where the image is located).
oh... I checked the file's "Usage" section, and I now understand that it is used as the image in Template:Literature. Therefor, you should check the revision history of the template, see who added it, and then ping them in a new section on the Template's talkpage, along with a suggestion on what (if anything) to replace it with.

OK will do - I hadnt planned to go back to the specific uploader, I was more interested in your opinion in a replacement for a elliptical image usage (bit like having an image of a lemon in a template about apples), but no big deal, trust all is well in your woods, so to speak JarrahTree 23:04, 29 July 2016 (UTC)
Worked on layout improvements to have a better visual separation of qualifiers and references (phabricator:T141862)
Added a line to the suggester to indicate when no matching item or property was found (phabricator:T142034)
Fixed and issue with scroll bars in the logo section of the ArticlePlaceholder (phabricator:T139977)
Worked more on making it possible to translate an article in the ArticlePlaceholder (phabricator:T124036)
Worked on fixing link in in other languages section for ArticlePlaceholder (phabricator:T137933)
Worked more on groundwork for multi content revisions which we need for structured data support for Commons in order to have structured and unstructured data on the file page at the same time (phabricator:T141878)
Worked on automatically creating a mediainfo entity when adding a statement - so far it is only possible by adding a label or description (phabricator:T140760)
WikiShootMe has a lot of new updates: OAuth-based image upload button, uploads to Commons and adds to Wikidata item with one click, right-click on the map to add a missing item, build-in Wikidata search, free images search (example for Central Cambridge)
A famous Italian song, Tanti Auguri by Raffaella Carrà, states "Com'è bello far l'amore da Trieste in giù" (literally, in English: "How great it is to make love from Trieste to below"). This is a query to find out where you shouldn't make love.
