A1 please download version from -- Magioladitis (talk) 20:12, 14 June 2015 (UTC)



AWB version, Russian Wikipedia.
NoLimitsPlugin.dll do not work. Example - Query 'Make list Category (NL, Admin, Bot)' for ru:Категория:Страницы, использующие повторяющиеся аргументы в вызовах шаблонов (~24k pages) gives only 5000 pages.

I supposed, it can be related to API changes in end of June. Alex Spade (talk) 12:34, 11 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Update to has solved problem. Alex Spade (talk) 16:26, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Alex Spade yes, it was due to API changes. We updated our code. -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:48, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Cannot switch sites[edit]


After today's update to I cannot switch from to my local where I have a bot account. So, I cannot use AWB at all. There is an error message popped up saying about error connection to server. I have tried others local wikis and the same problem occurred. Blackfish (talk) 21:33, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

  • I have the same issue - can't switch to en.wikisource, en.wiktionary, or commons. bd2412 T 03:21, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

@Blackfish and BD2412: Please re-download the version and tell me if the problem persists. I uploaded an older version of a dll and fixed two hours later. -- Magioladitis (talk) 05:51, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

After updating can't change the "language of the site" from EN to RU. Игорь Темиров (talk) 05:17, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Игорь Темиров Please re-download the version and tell me if the problem persists. I uploaded an older version of a dll and fixed two hours later. -- Magioladitis (talk) 05:52, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

ZipException in ZipFile.ReadEntries[edit]

Old bug[edit]

Whatever. The bug I reported on six version ago still happens in 5700. Why should I spend time on a new bug report, and even have to log in externally, while it was not even acknowledged back then? -DePiep (talk) 21:35, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

The bug has been migrated. No need to create a new bug for it. There should be a task-number on the archive page. (tJosve05a (c) 23:35, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

A disappointment[edit]

There is a top box on this page, titled "Report all things on Phabricator!". Then saying "All new reports should be reported there". The link is to: [1]. (The phabricator logon page). When I login with my wiki name DePiep, it fails. On top of this: why should I login on a non-wiki site with my wiki-id??? -DePiep (talk) 21:43, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

It is a(Wikimedia Foundation) wiki-page. Just press the MediaWIki-button (the yellow with the flower) "login with MediaWiki-account" to Authorize it. (tJosve05a (c) 23:36, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

DePiep Check Phabricator. -- Magioladitis (talk) 05:35, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

probably erroneous correction[edit]

  • Dunno if this qualifies as a bug, but on Wichita Linebacker AWB wants to change "John Enbom" to "John Embom"• Lingzhi(talk) 02:36, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
    • plus didn't catch charcaters --> characters on [[Final Fantasy]. • Lingzhi(talk) 02:54, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
@Lingzhi: The first issue doesn't qualify as a bug - it's an issue with the typo rules that AWB uses, which I have now fixed.
For the second issue, the rules don't catch every single typo. Since Final Fantasy is the only article that contains "charcaters", it doesn't warrant a new rule, so I just fixed the typo manually.
In the future, please drop a note at Wikipedia talk:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos to discuss changes to the typo rules. Thanks, and happy editing! GoingBatty (talk) 03:12, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
