Welcome for new editors using VE[edit]

Hi, I would like to create a VE version of Template:Welcome training, draft created at User:WereSpielChequers/Welcome Training (VE) any assistance gratefully received. ϢereSpielChequers 08:10, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

User:Evolution and evolvability did some good work on help pages for newcomers a while ago. If you're still working on this, you might ask for his advice. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 18:07, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks WhatAmIdoing, yes Evolution and evolvability any help you can give would be appreciated. I suspect I need to make both welcomes "switchable" between V/E and classic editor. I was helping at a training session a couple of weeks ago, and though the trainer was promoting V/E, there was at least one lady present who preferred the classic editor as similar to html. ϢereSpielChequers 18:50, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
@WereSpielChequers: Hi, apologies for the delay (I marked this as read but forgot tot actually reply!). I'm happy to help out. I'll take a look at your draft this weekend and do a bit of editing. I was genuinely shocked looking at the list of welcome templates that nothing already exists! T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 06:50, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks T. Shaffee, to be fair, most welcomes are basically walls of text re policy and as far as they work they are as good for V/E editors as classic editors. But the training template is designed to give newbies some uncontentious things to do, steer them into areas where they can make their first edits with minimal risk of contention.

Editing News #1—July 2019[edit]

Read this in another languageSubscription list for this multilingual newsletter

VisualEditor-logo.svg

Did you know?

Did you know that you can use the visual editor on a mobile device?

Every article has a pencil icon at the top. Tap on the pencil icon OOjs UI icon edit-ltr.svg to start editing.

Edit Cards

Toolbar with menu opened

This is what the new Edit Cards for editing links in the mobile visual editor look like. You can try the prototype here: 📲 Try Edit Cards.

Welcome back to the Editing newsletter.

Since the last newsletter, the team has released two new features for the mobile visual editor and has started developing three more. All of this work is part of the team's goal to make editing on mobile web simpler.

Before talking about the team's recent releases, we have a question for you:

Are you willing to try a new way to add and change links?

If you are interested, we would value your input! You can try this new link tool in the mobile visual editor on a separate wiki.

Follow these instructions and share your experience:

📲 Try Edit Cards.

Recent releases[edit]

The mobile visual editor is a simpler editing tool, for smartphones and tablets using the mobile site. The Editing team has recently launched two new features to improve the mobile visual editor:

  1. Section editing
    • The purpose is to help contributors focus on their edits.
    • The team studied this with an A/B test. This test showed that contributors who could use section editing were 1% more likely to publish the edits they started than people with only full-page editing.
  2. Loading overlay
    • The purpose is to smooth the transition between reading and editing.

Section editing and the new loading overlay are now available to everyone using the mobile visual editor.

New and active projects[edit]

This is a list of our most active projects. Watch these pages to learn about project updates and to share your input on new designs, prototypes and research findings.

  • Edit cards: This is a clearer way to add and edit links, citations, images, templates, etc. in articles. You can try this feature now. Go here to see how: 📲Try Edit Cards.
  • Mobile toolbar refresh: This project will learn if contributors are more successful when the editing tools are easier to recognize.
  • Mobile visual editor availability: This A/B test asks: Are newer contributors more successful if they use the mobile visual editor? We are collaborating with 20 Wikipedias to answer this question.
  • Usability improvements: This project will make the mobile visual editor easier to use.  The goal is to let contributors stay focused on editing and to feel more confident in the editing tools.

Looking ahead[edit]

  • Wikimania: Several members of the Editing Team will be attending Wikimania in August 2019. They will lead a session about mobile editing in the Community Growth space. Talk to them about how editing can be improved.
  • Talk Pages: In the coming months, the Editing Team will begin improving talk pages and communication on the wikis.

Learning more[edit]

The VisualEditor on mobile is a good place to learn more about the projects we are working on. The team wants to talk with you about anything related to editing. If you have something to say or ask, please leave a message at Talk:VisualEditor on mobile.

PPelberg (WMF) (talk) and Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 23:36, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Just a reminder that the "Edit Cards" change will probably happen on Tuesday. Feel free to ping me if you have comments/questions/problems. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 20:27, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

copying and pasting table cells broken[edit]

Bug report VisualEditor
Description copying and pasting table cells creates a new table with those cells in the target cells
Intention: trying to copy and paste the contents of cells into another table or section of the same table
Steps to Reproduce: as follows
  1. First open a table in the Visual Editor
  2. Then copy some cells
  3. Finally attempt to paste those cells elsewhere in the same table or a different table
Results: the copied cells are pasted within your selected cell as a new table

Links inside link to file[edit]

Browser: Google Chrome 76 - OS: Windows 10 64-bit - Skin: Vector

When using the source editor with syntax highlighter on, when you have links inside a link to a file. The colouring of the square brackets ends at the square brackets for the link and not for the link to the file. If an external link is at the end of a file link (causing ]]]) at the end, the first two square brackets are coloured rather than the last two (]]] instead of ]]]). External links are also not styled when in file links. For example:

[[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [[link]], okay?]] should be...

A) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [[link]], okay?]] (link colouring and darker background)
B) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [[link]], okay?]] (link colouring)
C) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [[link]], okay?]] (no styling / no link colouring)

[[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [[link|display]], okay?]] should be...

A) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [[link|display]], okay?]] (link colouring and darker background)
B) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [[link|display]], okay?]] (link colouring)
C) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [[link|display]], okay?]] (no styling / no link colouring)

[[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org external link.]]] should be...

A) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org external link.]]] (link colouring and darker background)
B) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org external link.]]] (link colouring)
C) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org external link.]]] (square bracket colouring fixed)

[[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org external link], okay?]] should be...

A) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org external link], okay?]] (link colouring and darker background)
B) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org external link], okay?]] (link colouring)
C) Not changed

[[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org], okay?]] should be...

A) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org], okay?]] (link colouring and darker background)
B) [[File:example.png|thumb|This a caption with a [https://en.wikipedia.org], okay?]] (link colouring)
C) Not changed

I prefer option A and I'm fine with either option B or option C.

Awards table[edit]

Hi, On the Awards tables for BLPs - If you move the result columns across this happens, I have to enter |{{won}}/{{nom}}{{pending}} on a new line for the results template to work,
Maybe this should be changed so that when you move columns it then creates them as a new line regardless of whether it was like that before or not,
Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 17:02, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

Completely unrelated to that, just FYI, those tables shouldn't use rowspan. I know this is typical and conventional, but it violates WP:ACCESSIBILITY--3family6 (Talk to me | See what I have done) 02:36, 16 August 2019 (UTC)

Hello. The new source editing in en.wiki made one aspect of talk page/project/etc. communicating: it has obscured the signature button, which is now two clicks away and is in a long drop-out list. Previously, it was much more easily accessible along other big buttons like Symbols or Links, so I'd like it to return to that position on talk pages. Thank you!

Copy/paste anomalies[edit]

Bug report VisualEditor
Description Copy/paste anomalies
Intention: move a paragraph with its references to another spot in the article
Steps to Reproduce: Edit article LiMux. Select the last paragraph in the article. Cut.

Adding invalid dates[edit]

The editor allows invalid dates to be added. It could be one of the citation insertion bits but a number of websites just give a numeric date in the cites. As an example from soompi.com it allows |date=1531510450 to be input. See this edit. Keith D (talk) 21:08, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
