Why not add translate extension?

Miraheze is a multilingual wiki farm.So this wiki needs to open to everyone.

Why not add translate extension?And then read helps will be convenient.

@Naleksuh: Would it be possible to import Huggle and STiki from Wikipedia? BlackWidowMovie0 (talk) 23:46, 2 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Huggle and STiki are standalone desktop applications, not JavaScript tools, so there is nothing to import. Naleksuh (talk) 23:47, 2 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Naleksuh: Would it be possible to configure them for Miraheze, though? BlackWidowMovie0 (talk) 23:58, 2 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
If configuration pages are required, then yes, absolutely, I have no problem with this, and will leave it up Naleksuh to see if it's required. Dmehus (talk) 00:00, 3 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
That would likely be something sorted out with the creator of the tools. I believe Huggle is only capable of pointing to Wikimedia projects and may need some modification to point to Miraheze. Naleksuh (talk) 00:03, 3 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Naleksuh and Dmehus: I will contact the Huggle dev. BlackWidowMovie0 (talk) 00:12, 3 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Public interface access


See User:BlackWidowMovie0/Main Page for links to the Discord server and the IRC channel. It could be good. I am asking @Naleksuh:, @Universal Omega:, @MacFan4000:, and @Dmehus: to join the server to set it up, same for the IRC channel. BlackWidowMovie0 (talk) 01:24, 3 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

IMHO this is such a small community (this wiki and templatewiki combined), that we don’t really need a discord server or another IRC channel. A single feed + chat channel (#miraheze-feed-dev) is enough for us. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 01:35, 3 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Oh. Ok. I guess that's fine. I'll keep the server in case the wiki becomes big. BlackWidowMovie0 (talk) 01:38, 3 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Community proposal regarding either potential changes to the user group and BlackWidowMovie0


I propose that we use the following as our new wordmark. What does people think?
MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 22:44, 16 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I'd prefer just "dev" here. I don't think "wiki" needs to be part of the wordmark in this case. Dmehus (talk) 22:47, 16 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I get an error when I try to load a script from another wiki

This is in the console: vector.js:1 Refused to execute script from 'https://tishina.miraheze.org/wiki/Script:WikiCommunity.js?action=raw' because its MIME type ('text/x-wiki') is not executable, and strict MIME type checking is enabled.

This is the code:


Тишина (talk) 21:51, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Тишина Hello! You have to add &ctype=text/javascript at the end of the URL for MediaWiki to parse it. Note however that you must create the script in the MediaWiki: category or in a User subpage or else MediaWiki will return a 403 saying For security reasons JavaScript cannot be loaded from unprotected pages. Please only create javascript in the MediaWiki: namespace or as a User subpage. Agent Isai Talk to me! 07:14, 8 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks I'll copy the code to the MediaWiki namespace. I tried to make a user group once to allow a special group to edit the script namespace without making them administrators or giving them access to all the MediaWiki pages but it didn't work. I could make a bot copy the code automatically but keep code editing restricted to only certain users. Тишина (talk) 07:25, 9 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I ran into a problem writing a function to import scripts

I wrote this function to simplify importing code from other pages but it doesn't work. I'm not sure if it's possible to import code this way. My best guess is that the getScript is running asynchronously and causing the rest of the code to fail because the required function wasn't imported.

function import_module(module) { mw.loader.getScript('https://tishina.miraheze.org/wiki/MediaWiki:'+ module +'.js?action=raw&ctype=text/javascript'); }

Running mw.loader.getScript by itself without import_module still doesn't work.

Тишина (talk) 04:56, 11 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 mw.loader.load('https://tishina.miraheze.org/wiki/MediaWiki:'+ module +'.js?action=raw&ctype=text/javascript')
shouldn't this work fine? Ugochimobi (talk) 15:35, 22 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Request for translation administrator

Hi! I need to mark some pages for translation here. I would even ask them to activate the translation extension, however, the first section of this page has already done. Thanks. YellowFrogger (talk) 00:02, 3 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

X mark.svg Not done That group doesn't exist. Naleksuh (talk) 00:03, 3 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Wait a minute, I withdrawn this because there is no Translation administrator? It's probably the administrators who do this. Is there anyone who is interested in marking multiple pages for translation on this site? YellowFrogger (talk) 00:08, 3 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I personally don't see a need to translate pages, as this site is mostly meant for holding code. I suppose the docs could be translated, though. Naleksuh (talk) 00:12, 3 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Request for Comments: Merging the wiki

An idea that has been floated around for quite some time has been consolidating this wiki with a bigger Miraheze project such as Template Wiki. This wiki is a rather small wiki and will possibly continue to be for a while so as such, it would make sense to consolidate this project into a larger one to reduce the overlap between them and the moderation burden on current sysops. Since Template Wiki focuses on a related topic (templates), it is now proposed that this project be merged with it. Template Wiki will assume this wiki's branding and will increase its scope to also cover the same topics as this wiki. Merging these wikis will let this new consolidated wiki focus on broader topics while reducing moderation burden on sysops and helping this new wiki help users better as Template Wiki is a very commonly looked at resource by new users. Agent Isai Talk to me! 05:59, 21 September 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Proposal 1 (Merge wiki)

This wiki agrees to merge with Template Wiki if the Request for Comments on that wiki passes. The content of this wiki will be moved to the new wiki and the old wiki will assume this wiki's name, subdomain, and branding.
