Speaking of which, the template should have a vardefine thingy like CitePodcast so that you can give the issue and it provides the title, issue and url. A bot would have to remove all the title and url parameters from articles... CiteGodLetter and CiteLore should also use this, but those are are used much less. 18px-Avatar.png Fswe1 Lore project

Let's steal more stuff from WPEdit

Ya know how you want to remove navboxes from the mobile skin because of how huge they are? What about the stuff up top? I'm not sure if you've browsed WP on a mobile device, but when you come across those top-of-the-page templates, they are removed and replaced with "This page has some issues". Anyone who cares to see what those issues are can click those words and find the templates on their own separate page. This makes browsing on a phone much more convenient. We can't exactly just hide those templates as you plan to do with navboxes because they usually have important information (I'm thinking about templates like {{rare item}}, {{postbag}}, etc.). I'd love to be able to do exactly what WP does; however, I need to know if it's actually feasible. If you can actually write this script, that'd be awesome, and either you or I could write up a forum that everyone will nodoubtedly support. If you can't, is there anything else we could do? Or anyway we could get Wikia to help (if the reason is incompatibility, etc.)? MolManCqm 13:15, December 27, 2013 (UTC)

Common.js/geupdate,jsEdit

Note: This messages has also been posted to User talk:Joeytje50.

Hello Cam! User:Undamaged brought to our attention that the "Update price" button on the Exchange: pages were not providing the correct prices, as seen here. Assuming that the GE Graph API was being derpy again, we decided to check it against the in game GE. This lead to us finding that the thing was, in fact, pulling the incorrect data. However, checking the api directly, I found that it does have the correct price "1388102400000":31 for today. Confused, I figured I would check TyBot to ensure that it was still pulling the correct information, and it was. I am a complete novice at Javascript, so I was hoping you'd be able to look into this and fix it if possible. Thanks, 22px-Logo.svg.png24px-TyA-pony.png 17:05, December 27, 2013 (UTC)

And this one is also posted to User talk:TyA ;)
I've fixed the bug. The problem was that it was going through var i in pricelist, with i being a string of the name of the property of pricelist (if that makes any sense XD) which is not sorted by numerical value. That caused the last iteration of that loop not to be the actual most recent price (which it previously was though), so that was what broke it. I've fixed it to now look for the highest value for the UNIX timestamp on the json page. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 02:34, December 29, 2013 (UTC)

File:11-07-09 01.06.39.png Edit

Hi I just moved this file that was on your page of unlicensed files. It was actually an image of a Treasure Trail scan location and I renamed it to File:Scan clue Lumbridge Swamp Caves north-west of Tears of Guthix Cavern entrance.png. As far as I know there is no license for these images so I have not fixed the redlink, I thought you might want to remove this file from your list instead. Thanks, IsobelJMagic logs detail 21:07, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

re:anonexchangeEdit

I believe that was in the time of a proposal to remove the edit button from the Exchange pages for anons, or something. I don't really remember it that well, but I think what it did was that it was a thing on the notice templates that would only show up for anons, or something. I don't really remember it that well though. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 19:50, January 3, 2014 (UTC)

Category:Parser function errorsEdit

Hi. For some reason, the MW messages that add that category are transcluding it onto non-mainspace pages even though the messages are using {{Mainonly}} to add the category. This is fixed with a null edit to the page. I'm stumped as to why it works that way, honestly... I've been cleaning up this category with the necessary null edits myself, but I also just asked Az if he wouldn't mind having his bot take of the null-editing as a part of its daily routine. That's literally all I know about the problem except for when these messages appear, but I'm fairly certain you'll know once you see the messages, so I don't think I need to explain that to you. Is this something you can look into/fix? :ɔ MolManCqm 14:59, January 6, 2014 (UTC)

More or less correct. The only detail you got a little off is that not every page was added right away. The cache seems to be taking its sweet time with this and adds maybe 50 to 100 pages a day or so. I'm hoping and assuming that once a page has been null edited to clear the category that it will never pop up again, but I can't say for sure. MolManCqm 15:09, January 6, 2014 (UTC)
So there's nothing we can do? No easy work around? :c MolManCqm 15:39, January 6, 2014 (UTC)

CSSEdit

Collapsible table-ception cells are white (ex: Template:Infobox Monster). Can you make them beige to match the rest of the table? MolManCqm 17:33, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

2 more things:
  • What happened to the charm log script? All submissions for the past couple days don't seem to be using it.
  • Would you be against adding my forum to the site notice? Something along the lines of, "We're looking to start on a complete revamp of our strategy guides! If you have any ideas or suggestions, post them at Forum:Strategy pages brainstorm."
MolManCqm 17:41, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
Huh. It is working completely fine, but I haven't seen it actually being used by IPs... It works from both the monster page and the /Charm log page, so I have no idea why IPs have been been doing manual edits. I'll keep trying to find out why. Can we also set up an abuse filter to disallow non-autoconfirmed edits to charm log pages unless it's with the script? It's much more difficult to diagnosis vandalism when it's not done with the script. MolManCqm 17:53, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I got it. The script isn't loading for IPs at all. I went incognito and clicked the submission form, it took me to the editor instead of displaying the js submission form. MolManCqm 17:55, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
Hi, it's been about two weeks since I asked about that template script, and I haven't heard anything from you about it since our S:C PM. I'd just like to know if you've looked into this idea any further; whether or not it's something I can look forward to having on the wiki one day. If for any reason you don't want to work on it, is there anyone else who maybe would? On the otherhand, if it's something we simply can't support having on the wiki, do you have any possible alternatives? I do understand you dislike using js on the mobile skin, but this might be a worthwhile use of it. I'm not trying to be a nag, and this is not a pertinent issue in any sense, so ETAs, etc. for anything don't matter to me. I just want to know if this proposal has any future whatsoever.

Finnish Rswiki CSS Edit

My name is Henry and Im admin and bureaucrat at http://fi.runescape.wikia.com/wiki/

I was thinking of updating the wikias appearance. I have been chatting with editors and they told me to update the CSS. Tho, I dont know where I can find it in my wiki or if the page even exists. The page Im looking for is like this: http://runescape.wikia.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css but I havent found it in my wikia.

I tried to update once, but it ended up with errors. I wish if you could add the code, or tell me how I do it. The point is to make the finnish version of the wiki same as the english version, but Im struggling.

Sincerely, HenDaBen

CiteTemplatesEdit

I've removed the parameters from invocations of the template, can you remove them from the actual source code? Everything except CiteGeneral and PlainCiteGeneral. MolManCqm 19:28, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

They're not protected, no. They're just stupidly complex, and I'd rather not deal with them. I already broke CitePostbag recently... I did fix it though, and now the links it creates take you not only to our page, but they bring you to the exact letter as well! Also, as long as you're tending to your talk page, you never responded about the feedback script :c MolManCqm 11:45, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Switchinfobox Edit

Hi,

I'm trying to add a SwitchInfobox on my wiki( runescapefanfiction ) just like the one onthis wiki, but whenever I use the template, it displays all the items in the template rather than the item which is linked to the button that I click on and also the loading button doesn't dissapear after it has finished loading and a whole bunch of empty paragraphs appear out of nowhere, like on this page for example. I've used Matthew2602's javascript and css code for the switch infobox on my wiki(which is here(js) and here), I've also made sure that the script and css pages are imported using the importArticles method(which I don't really understand how to use) in the common.js page. I think for some reason javascript is not working on my wiki, or maybe I'm not importing the scripts properly on my wiki. Do you know how I can check to see if this really is the issue and how I can fix this?

Thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nabz010 (talk) on 16:17, January 16, 2014‎.

RS:ADEdit

You should remove the ajax refresh... I mean it doesn't even work... DPL is cached. MolManCqm 22:45, January 20, 2014 (UTC)

Template:Switch inlineEdit

I'm having an extremely tough time trying to figure this template. Could you maybe improve the documentation and have some really simply usage examples? Also, can you move the inner workings of the template out of your userspace? I copied the code into a template namespace page, but that broke it for reason... MolManCqm 19:13, January 21, 2014 (UTC)

Okay, that's understandable. But how come it seems to work on the template page itself, even if not ready for deployment? MolManCqm 20:00, January 21, 2014 (UTC)
That's what I get for being lazy and using subst: MolManCqm 20:17, January 21, 2014 (UTC)
So we shouldn't be using switch inline yet? I guess I can bug joey to fix it more. Also, can you still write some usage examples. Also, the inline will be able to change two different parameters at once, right? Like, if I wanted two parameters in one infobox to change but nothing else, I could use switch inline and it will change both parameters simultaneously? Also, I keep typing it out as "paramaters"; what the fuck is wrong with me? MolManCqm 13:03, January 22, 2014 (UTC)
Yes, it is! And it also answers my last question. So can I not use it yet? Because I had a pretty big plan for pet pages. MolManCqm 13:18, January 22, 2014 (UTC)

Map thumb and images overlapping textEdit

Can you tell me why this crap was happening? You have to look at the differences without fullwidth. Signature5.pngSignature5Last.png 04:31, January 30, 2014 (UTC)

It wasn't only that. The map was rendering underneath the text but on top of the drop boxes when I put it in the mapthumb template. I had it set to float to the right but it wouldn't go underneath the concept art image, it kept sitting to the left of it, therefore sitting to the left of it where all the drop logs were. It's in my first edit. Signature5.pngSignature5Last.png 13:25, January 30, 2014 (UTC)

Re:warbandstimer.jsEdit

Okay so here's what's wrong:

  • My friend said it still counts upwards
  • It changes to a yellow background 10 mins before it starts (which is fine I guess but it stops the timer from moving)
  • The text doesn't change to "Active" to replace the countdown on the timer when warbands is happening
  • I think it pauses after and doesn't continue counting again until you refresh

Some jsEdit

What are your thoughts on using js to change a page's content based on URL parameters. There aren't a whole ton of places this could be useful, but I like the benefits of where it could be used.

The only thing I have in mind right now is British/American floor numbers. It'd be neat if we modified template:floor to have a link for American readers that would, say append something like ?variation=american and have template:floornumber change display accordingly. No, I'm not asking for spelling changes, just floor numbers. I can actually see floor numbers being cause of confusion.

I figured I'd ask about your thoughts on this instead of just asking it to be made. I know jackshit about js, so I'd rather get your input on the benefits/costs before getting my hopes up.

Also, do you have any idea what he floor classes in those templates are for? They seem useless unless there's something I'm missing. MolManCqm 02:09, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

A css gadget would be great actually. There's nothing wrong with the title, but if we can do better, why not try? MolManCqm 13:35, February 4, 2014 (UTC)

Template:Archive listEdit

The problem, which I can't seem to find a way of bypassing, is that, for some reason, the parsing order was changed. The magic words aren't being converted to their variable until after the DPL tag reads it, screwing the whole thing up. I highly doubt it was a change by the DPL devs, but it could very well be the case. I used to use "Main" as the parameter for namespace, but that doesn't work anymore. Before recently, the extension would ignore most invalid parameters there and just default to the mainspace. The parsing order can be fixed in some cases by changing it to the parser tag (like you tried); however, this doesn't look like it could ever bode well with the complex titlematch used in the template. Aside: I really wish I could change it to regex, to be something like /\/Archive_[0-9]+/, cleaning up that /Archive%0/Archive%9 shit, but, again, that damned parsing order. The best order of business would be getting Wikia or DPL (whoever may be responsible) to revert this change. I was actually going to do it myself today, unless you want to be the one to harass them. MolManCqm 14:14, February 8, 2014 (UTC)

That makes no fucking sense, it always worked. Why doesn't it work now, then? MolManCqm 00:05, February 9, 2014 (UTC)
Dammit. Well, as pissed as I am, I think I found the fix. I was worried about the titlematch because I require | for two things in there: parser functions and logical or. I did some experimenting, and it looks like I can use a regular bar (|) for the parser functions and a split bar (¦) for the or without confusing either the titlematch or the #dpl tag itself. This better work. I hate the old archive list. On the bright side, with the tag, I can use actual parameters now, instead of hacking them in there by defining variables first. MolManCqm 00:21, February 9, 2014 (UTC)
I think that takes care of it... If you find any problems, tell me. But, please, don't find any problems. MolManCqm 00:29, February 9, 2014 (UTC)
Cool, I was able to make it regex :D. I only just remembered that titleregexp is stupid and doesn't interpret spaces as underscores. Using PAGENAMEE seems to let me regex. Again, tell me if anything breaks, but please don't find anything that breaks ;-; MolManCqm 23:27, February 9, 2014 (UTC)

Wikia.cssEdit

Hi Cam,  I know this isn't really what you do but can you help me figure out why my wikia.css isn't working?  I kept it really simple, all I want to do is to change the background.

Thank you Cam :D It works!!! One question though...is it possible to make it so that it doesn't move when i scroll up and down?  Right now it just repeats with the length of the page, and i would like it to stay static just like the wiki default image.  I'm probably possible but I have no idea how.

Visual editorEdit

Hey cqm, i have a problem with the visual editor. I very very much prefer source mode editing on the wiki,but somehow it always forces me to use the visual editor (takes long to load, and i dont like it).In my preferences i have UNticked the box to use visual editor, meaning it SHOULD not be used. Anything you can do to help me here? Dragon dagger AmoVos 08:55, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

Well that's strange, it only seems to happen on the Celestial dragon page. Why is that? =o Dragon dagger AmoVos 09:01, March 13, 2014 (UTC)
Hmm, it does happen on some random other pages too, example: Bonus experience items. Dragon dagger AmoVos 09:17, March 13, 2014 (UTC)
Okaj, so the VE always opens when clicking the edit button next to headers.Clicking the edit button on top of a page is the only way it doesnt happen. Is this intentional? It should be fixed i think. Dragon dagger AmoVos 09:21, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

BOTEdit

Any important page that is subject to change and relies on DPL. Pages like RS:AD, RuneScape:Orphanage/Disambiguation pages, and Money making guide are all pages that could use a daily null edit. You may be thinking to tell me to use ?action=purge, but this forces a cache only on the user's side, a null edit forces it for everyone, which is what I want. Another, is every page in Category:Parser function errors. Az sorta agreed to do that, but he never actually did... MolManCqm 12:46, March 13, 2014 (UTC)

i only agreed to do it for a few days, and did it... i quote myself: It's a temporary thing... so it will do it for several days and we'll see how it goes.   az talk   12:54, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
well, most pages kept re-appearing in that category, disproving my earlier theory that we only need to update the pages once. and the pages in that category seemed random, those which are not even visited at all, like old user pages. the best solution for this would be to actually fix the parser errors, instead of null editing the pages... which seemed pointless to me. thats why i decided to stop doing it.   az talk   23:25, March 14, 2014 (UTC)
