NPP questionEdit

I don't know if you can help with this, but since you seem to have a good handle on a lot of technical stuff. At the New Pages Feed, there is a count at the bottom of Total Unreviewed Pages. I would like to get that number and display it elsewhere. I've searched in template space for something but didn't find anything. Can you make a template for this? Thanks. MB 14:16, 25 May 2022 (UTC)

I don't know where that text or code lives. I recommend asking at WP:VPT. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:12, 25 May 2022 (UTC)
Asked and answered at VPT (which I am sure you watch). But that answer is too technical for me, is it enough for you to make the template I want? MB 02:08, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
Nope. You'll need to follow up and ask about pulling that information into a template. – Jonesey95 (talk) 03:40, 26 May 2022 (UTC)

How to wrap template around image widthEdit

Hi Jonesey95, curious if there is a way for us in to set this template to warp around the borders of the image rather than being so wide. Here is an example page with the issue. Thanks in advance ! --Jacob.jose (talk) 06:45, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

I do not read ml well enough to figure out what is happening, but it looks like something is forcing everything in your infoboxes to be aligned to the left. It also looks like some data is being set to "nowrap", which makes the infoboxes very wide. It is possible that some change to site-wide CSS here at en.WP has not been copied to ml.WP, but that is just a guess. Izno might know. – Jonesey95 (talk) 06:56, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
The .infobox styles in ml:MediaWiki:Common.css are old. Izno (talk) 14:44, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
To elaborate some, some of the styles that were in Module:Infobox are now in MediaWiki:Common.css (but will eventually be moved to Module:Infobox/styles.css). Other styles in Common.css have already been moved to TemplateStyles. Izno (talk) 15:01, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
Thank you Jonesey95 and Izno. Much appreciated! Meanwhile, how do I edit Mediawiki:common.css on I seem unable to despite being an admin. Should I edit here? but that template seems blank.. so I wasn't sure if it's the right place to post my edits. --Jacob.jose (talk) 21:44, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
Jacob.jose You must be an interface administrator on your project. If you are not one, you will need to request that permission. If ml.wp doesn't have interface admins, you will need to ask for help from global interface editors (and/or stewards) somewhere on meta. It is a powerful permission, so it is generally limited, and one reason why you should try to move your styles away from Common.css. Izno (talk) 22:09, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
Thanks again Izno. We were able to get interface admin rights and fix the issue. Much appreciate your prompt advice! --Jacob.jose (talk) 05:17, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

Infobox soap characterEdit

Hello - I've been puzzled for a few days over the auto short description that's been added onto the template, as it's been adding the description to list articles too, eg List of Doctors characters (2022) now has the description. List articles of that nature don't need a short description and they all have {{Short description|None}} implemented at the top of their articles. I just noticed that it was yourself that added the auto description onto the template; would you be able to fix this? – DarkGlow • 16:55, 6 June 2022 (UTC)

I've updated the template to not set the description on "List of" articles. Jonesey can review and see if thats ok or if another option is prefered. -- WOSlinker (talk) 17:26, 6 June 2022 (UTC)
Thanks WOSlinker. To DarkGlow, if that change does not take care of the problem, let me know and I will implement a different fix. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:59, 6 June 2022 (UTC)
That's fixed it. Thanks both of you! – DarkGlow • 18:07, 6 June 2022 (UTC)

Automated short description in NBA season infoboxEdit

Hi! I have noticed that all the NBA season articles have now the "short description" text in the beginning of the article. As I understood the automatic short description should have been generated, but instead it just has this text on top. Could you please take a look as you were the last who edited the template. All the articles for all the season have it now, like 1946–47 Boston Celtics season, 1994–95 Philadelphia 76ers season - all of them. If I misunderstood something, I'm sorry. Thank you in advance. Best, Less Unless (talk) 20:48, 20 June 2022 (UTC)

Oh no, that was an incredible screwup by me! I have no excuse, and I am very sorry. I have fixed it, and I'm refreshing all of the affected articles right now. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:27, 20 June 2022 (UTC)


Many thanks for fixing stuff on my user page. I'm getting old!

Template documentationEdit

You can show bugs on a documentation page. That's how you show a user what not to do. If you're not going to be constructive and work on code, then what the hell is your problem? SamuelRiv (talk) 15:20, 9 July 2022 (UTC)

Please no personal attacks. I am simply cleaning up your errors, per guidelines, policy, straightforward mistakes, and examination of how the template code actually works (which may need fixing, in the case of {{Cite Ukrainian law}}). I appreciate your constructive contributions. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:04, 9 July 2022 (UTC)
What exactly did you do in Ukrainian law? Did you figure out what |number= is intended to correspond to in documents? Or are you referring to a bug that I obviously knew was there and was demonstrating. The example immediately above showed all parameters working. There was only one difference between the two examples: a blank parameter. I was obviously demoing a bug. I'll take your criticism on the casual language, but again, I don't think you understand the point of documenting bugs, which you have to do. So to be constructive, you either fix the error, or if you don't think it's clear what the documentation is demonstrating, clarify it. SamuelRiv (talk) 16:13, 9 July 2022 (UTC)

Thank you for fixing the error on my quote template! ––FormalDude talk 03:25, 11 July 2022 (UTC)

FormalDude, you're welcome! One reason that I fixed it is that it is transcluded in multiple pages, so when I fixed the page in your user space, it also fixed half a dozen other pages at the same time. – Jonesey95 (talk) 03:59, 11 July 2022 (UTC)

My articleEdit

Good morning,

I introduce myself, Florian CHARLET, French resident and I am an independent music producer and founder of 2Pac Legacy.

Indeed, for 15 years today I have been in music production and have worked on several artist projects by working in production labels and artists FR & US.

As I told you above, I am also the founder of 2Pac Legacy, the first European community on the late artist Tupac Shakur (stage name 2Pac).

I also released (free) mixtape projects related to his own family with whom I am in contact given the success of my projects in tribute to Tupac.

Since then, I have also been working with them on their own label that I develop in Europe. It is an American Hip-Hop label (Georgia) founded and chaired by his family members.

I come, through this email, to you to find out if it was possible to possibly get a small personal presentation page on Wikipedia?

I can also provide you, if you wish, with a complete presentation of what I have achieved about my musical career since I started, national press articles and a biography.

Thank you in advance for your return.

Infobox settlement helpEdit

Hey Jonesey! I saw your name at the latest contributors in the aforementioned template. Can you help me solve 2 problems I'm having with it in a certain article in my homewiki? The code is the same as here, apart from the localizations.

The article. The first error is in the coordinates section. I get the coordinate name twice, once per language, not sure why. And the second error is a formatting one, easy to see in red in the area section. If you can help somehow, I'd be grateful. :) - Klein Muçi (talk) 16:15, 19 July 2022 (UTC)

It looks like the coordinates problem is coming from Moduli:ISO_3166 when it calls Moduli:Coordinates. See sq:Përdoruesi:Jonesey95/sandbox for a minimal case. Edit that page and look at "Stampa të përdorura në këtë faqe:" to see which template or module is causing the duplication. The other red error is caused by | area_blank2_km2 = Njesi administrative being in a field that expects a numerical value. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:04, 19 July 2022 (UTC)
The second fix was easy (obviously) but I'm having difficulties with the Module related one. The main pages for that module are the same as in here as I've literally copy-pasted them there. I mean the module's main page + /data + /data/Nationality. I tried doing your suggested debugging but embarrassingly I found out I don't know how. I tried source code editing and VE editing but I don't see the "Stampa të përdorura në këtë faqe:" part. :P - Klein Muçi (talk) 17:41, 19 July 2022 (UTC)
Just found out! But still... I made sure those pages that are being invoked of that module are up to date with the current version here and yet... :/ - Klein Muçi (talk) 17:44, 19 July 2022 (UTC)
I don't know how to help you further. – Jonesey95 (talk) 18:33, 19 July 2022 (UTC)

No problem. Thank you for what you did! :) - Klein Muçi (talk) 18:39, 19 July 2022 (UTC)

Bad lint fixEdit

A few years ago now, you did some lint fixing, changing font tags to span tags. However, you missed out the # in a few of the fixes. (example). So, just wondering if you could look at those pages and fix them? Thanks. -- WOSlinker (talk) 14:10, 20 July 2022 (UTC)

Darn it, I don't like it when I make mistakes at scale. I do check my edits before saving, but with a lot of font tag fixes in a single diff, my eyes can sometimes glaze over. I have since fixed that bad regex, I'm pretty sure. Thanks for noticing these errors. I have posted an AWB request, because there are over 1,000 pages affected, not all of which are my fault (though many of them are!). – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:21, 20 July 2022 (UTC)

Katrina LombardEdit

The Infobox isn't the only place in an article where you might find the date of birth. In this case the other instance of it is where you would have found the citation. 48Pills (talk) 15:16, 20 July 2022 (UTC)

If you're talking about the birth date at the BLP article Karina Lombard, it needs to be supported by a reliable source. Citing IMDB for a birth date is not acceptable at Wikipedia. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:38, 20 July 2022 (UTC)
