Might be interested in this. I can't imagine it'd take too long to knock up, just have to find the time. I'd probably be doing it in C#. --cfp 10:39, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

How about the disambiguation of China?[edit]

It is not a disabmg page... --Skyfiler 19:41, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

Sometimes, if all or most of the links refer to one meaning of the article name, it may make more sense to redirect the disambiguation page to that article, and perhaps set up a disambiguation block. See Wikipedia:Disambiguation for more details. --Neo139 20:12, 5 August 2006 (UTC)


Hi there ! Do you know the wonderful software CorHomo, created on frwiki by Escaladix ? Ok, go here : . It works on the en.wikipedia as well. Have fun :-) 20:16, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks!! that is the program i was searching. I have tested it, its amazing. I edit the article adding the program description. I will expand it later.--Neo139 23:07, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
Is this tool dead? Or not maintained anymore? Could someone else adopt the project. This user had a very good bot too, named escalabot, that did the job before CorHomo: alerting on orpheline articles. Someone has a copy of CorHomo, if the author allowed it?

That's a shame to see good tools abandoned. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A01:E35:8A8D:FE80:6D40:9ACE:9572:EB5 (talk) 02:09, 4 December 2016 (UTC)


A program like this needs to be ported to C. Unfortunately, Java's license is incompatible with those who use GNU/Linux systems. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Yarou (talkcontribs) .

Even if you use the GNU Java compiler? -- ReyBrujo 20:48, 14 August 2006 (UTC)

I am considering a fixer based on Internet Explorer. CorHomo does not work on my PC--Skyfiler 16:41, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Help please: CorHomo faulting[edit]

My PC is a few years old and runs Windows 98. 2 days ago I downloaded CorHomo. The first time I called it, it ran. Every time after that, when I enter my English Wikipedia username and password, I click on "Identification", and I get an error window saying "Error: couldn't open socket: invalid argument.". If in that error window I click on "Details", I get this:-

couldn't open socket: invalid argument
couldn't open socket: invalid argument
    while executing
"socket $host $port"
    (procedure "http_get" line 61)
    invoked from within
"http_get $wikiurl -query [http_formatQuery wpName $nomutf8  wpPassword $passutf8 wpRemember 1 wpLoginattempt Identification]"
    (procedure "identify" line 10)
    invoked from within
"identify "http://$""
    ("after" script)

and it refuses to run further. What's gone wrong? (This happens also in the early morning here in England when the WWW is quiet because most Americans are in bed because of the time zone difference.) Anthony Appleyard 09:07, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

not recognizing disambig pages[edit]

i'm using version 1.3.2 and it doesn't seem to be able to understand pages like this. Perhaps there needs to be something adjusted in how Corhomo reads pages? -Zappernapper 16:06, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

I have run up against the same problem. In your case, it seems that it doesn't recognize PP as a disamb page because of {{2CC}}. For me, REM has {{3CC}} and George Clinton has {{hndis}} and these don't appear to Corhomo as disamb pages. I'm not sure why, but I sure wish it weren't the case.--Fisherjs 15:43, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Only working on disambig pages?[edit]

Is there any reason at all to require mandatory recognition that the page is a disambig before operating on it? The tool looks very useful for working to repair links to the wrong page. (Ie, linking to Parliament instead of Parliament of the United Kingdom) --Barberio 14:47, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

As far as I can tell there isn't a reason. If I understand you correctly you would load Parliament, look for pages in the left had side that should link to Parliament of the United Kingdom then use the tool to rectify this. However, this would only work if the Parliament page contained a link to the Parliament of the United Kingdom page. If you want to do this you have two options as far as I can tell.
1. Temporarily add {{disambig}} to the Parliament page. You would have to be quick though because someone would surely remove it. (Incidentally, this also fixes occurences of CorHomo not recognising a disambiguation page due to the use of {{disambiguation}}, {{Geodis}} or {{Hndis}})
2. Remove 3 lines of code from CorHomo to stop it checking for {{disambig}}.

can someone make a version who also works with NL? - Warddr 15:34, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Problem with CorHomo - can the software be improved?[edit]

Using CorHomo, I twice inadvertantly replaced the entire contents of one page with those of another: [1] and [2]. If another user hadn't kindly pointed this out to me ([3]) I'd have never even known. On both occasions I'd had two instances of CorHomo running simultaneously, to speed things up. I'm sure it was my fault for clicking the wrong button at the wrong time, but I thought I'd mention it here in case the software could be improved to prevent this happening again. Has anyone else ever encountered this? I downloaded CorHomo on Jan 42007. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 04:46, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

I just found out that I have been having a similar problem. (here) —Dylan Lake 16:34, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

I had a similar problem (and got blasted for it) when I double-clicked a new article to fix after sending a correction, but before "Choose a page" showed up in the message box. There is some lack of control or interlock to prevent this. We need to slow down and be careful, for now. Chris the speller 16:23, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

My French is not too good, but this appears to have been reported on [4] in section "Bug double-clic". Also the fact that CorHomo is completely busted by the change in the English Wikipedia that added "(links)" to the "What links here" pages. Chris the speller 16:37, 9 June 2007 (UTC)

Program no longer works in English Wikipedia[edit]

As Chris the speller noted in June, the program appears to no longer work. (Specifically, it isn't finding the links it should, and listing those in the left window of the program. -- John Broughton (♫♫) 01:51, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

New version CorHomo 1.3.3 [modifier][edit]

(copied from the relevant page on the French Wikipedia -- John Broughton (♫♫) 02:03, 16 November 2007 (UTC) )


J'ai une neveu version du CorHomo. Je ne sais pas Tcl, mais il fonctionne bien avec les dernières modifications en "Whatslinkshere". Vous pouvez télécharger: Qui fait la version pour Windows? J'aime le feedback  ;)


Sorry I don't speak French. Result from google translation.

I have a newer version of CorHomo. I do not know Tcl, but it works well with recent changes in Whatslinkshere. " You can download: Is there a version for Windows? I love feedback;)

Version 1.3.2 [modifier][edit]

(copied from the relevant page on the French Wikipedia -- John Broughton (♫♫) 02:03, 16 November 2007 (UTC) )

Hi. I'm afraid I don't speak French, but I'm trying to get CorHomo to work for me on the English-wiki. The program loads the possible choices correctly into the right-hand column, but it doesn't load any links in the left-hand column. Does anyone have a fix for this issue? Cheers, 13 novembre 2007 à 18:38 (CET) (PaddyM on the English Wikipedia).

Escaladix (d · c · b) has not contributed for 6 months now. The Windows version does not work, but you may try the Linux version patched by Jjvaca above. You may alternatively use Wikipedia Cleaner... GillesC →m'écrire 13 novembre 2007 à 18:51 (CET)
Thanks for the update. Cheers, 13 novembre 2007 à 19:00 (CET)

Edit of page[edit]

I have just re-formatted the page, to make it less confusingly laid out. I uploaded a screenshot over the previously deleted one, this one is under the correct GPL/GFDL license, so shouldn't get deleted (theoretically). I also updated the links and wording to reflect current status of CorHomo according to this talk page. Cheers, Storkk (talk) 15:40, 19 December 2007 (UTC)

Another version of CorHomo 1.3.3[edit]

If anyone is still interested, I have created a version that works in enwiki. The way CorHomo has been coded means that the slightest, otherwise inconsequential, change in the layout of the html, such as extra characters of white space, will break it. It should probably be parsing the pages with something like, but I am no Tcl programmer. William Avery (talk) 20:29, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

William's version is here. It's a script version that is run in Linux or Cygwin. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 13:17, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

I have a question[edit]

Hi! I like to know if CorHomo will can adapt to Catalan Wikipedia. Whom do I should ask her? If you need that translate the plataform, I will can.--KRLS (talk) 15:39, 18 February 2009 (UTC)


Greetings. I am trying to use disFixer without success. I pasted the script into my monobook (seen here User:J04n/monobook.js) then hit Ctrl and F5. I am using IE7. Thanks in advance J04n(talk page) 12:05, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

It seems that disFixer relies on the scripts from Polish Wiki and those are not going to work here just by magic. I understand the desire of the author to share his creation with us, but I seriously doubt it ever worked properly on English Wiki… :( Skarebo (talk) 06:41, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
btw, in addition to this discussion - it's not enough to load those scripts, there are language dependencies (like wiki-special links & strings in Polish) Skarebo (talk) 06:48, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

Hey. Give me a wiki cleaner it may help i need it please
