Project not available in HuggleEdit

Hi, i want to work on Santali Wikipedia project(sat.wikipedia.org) with huggle is it possible?? I am not seeing any option for it. Rocky 734 (talk) 18:36, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

@Rocky 734: yes, it's possible! You just need to create a request on phabricator, or I can do that for you... but first of all, is local community of Santali Wikipedia aware of this? Are they OK with bringing Huggle to that wiki? Petrb (talk) 20:32, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
@Petrb:, I'm Sorry for very late response. Thank you very much for your support, i just posted above in my own will. I will first ask and tell them about it and after that if they are happy i will contact you. I think more preparation is needed for it to bring it in Santali Wikipedia. Happy Diwali in advance :-)Rocky 734 (talk) 04:20, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

Huggle keeps freezingEdit

I've already tried firing up HG twice today and it appears to freeze within seconds of logging in. This wasn't a problem yesterday; any ideas why? lavender|(formerly HMSSolent)|lambast 02:45, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

Hmm, any more information you can provide? Version of Huggle, your OS, how does it look when it "freezes"? Petrb (talk) 12:50, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

To rollback or not to rollbackEdit

I've noticed that for some weird reason Huggle used rollback when the option called use software rollback is not ticked, while just using manual reversion when ticked. This seems like the opposite of how it should work to me. Asartea Talk | Contribs 16:23, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello not really, I think this option should be rephrased, in fact this is decision whether Huggle should use Rollback API of MW (in case it's unchecked), or "software emulated rollback" (when checked) which is a regular edit that supplements the API call with multiple other API calls (retrieve the history, find the latest modification by another user, retrieve content of that revision, then replace the current page with that content using same edit summary as with actual rollback). From user perspective the end result looks exactly the same, it's just performing worse. The only gain with software emulated rollback is that it works even when you don't have rollback permissions (not all wikis requires rollback to use Huggle, like enwiki does).

Template-protected edit request on 7 November 2020Edit

Both of these templates have weird punctuation spacing when used with a specific edit. I've confirmed both changes behave as expected.

(Note: this isn't a talk page, please remove the category I manually added in the line below when this is resolved.)

UI problem (maybe MSWin update induced)Edit

I have a laptop with Huggle a second display by HDMI. Lately, perhaps after a MSWin update, pop-up menus for e.g., choices of revert warnings appear on the main laptop display instead of alongside the tab popping them up in the Huggle window on the HDMI display. Running MSWin 10.0.18363. Wtmitchell (talk) (earlier Boracay Bill) 14:56, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Uw-block and unregistered usersEdit

At User talk:220.253.71.58, the first warning message includes a disclaimer that explains to the user that it may not be directed at them personally because of a dynamic IP address. The {{Uw-block}} template used for the block doesn't make this distinction, though. Should it be reworded to make a similar distinction when used on an IP talk page? —[AlanM1 (talk)]— 04:10, 24 November 2020 (UTC)
