e·h·w·Stock post message.svg To-do:

  • Ability to remove maintenance tags from articles using the "tag" module
  • Incorporate one of the many delsort scripts into Twinkle (see WP:DELSORT).
  • Incorporate FurMe into Twinkle.
  • Redesign the tag module with a tabbed interface similar to PageTriage to enhance the user experience while searching for tags
  • Convert, which Twinkle uses for API calls, to use JSON format.

Bug: Failure to place maintenance tags below hatnotes when there's also a short description templateEdit

Desired behaviour: Twinkle should always place maintenance tags beneath hatnotes. Actual behaviour: Twinkle places maintenance tags beneath hatnotes when the hatnote is at the top of the page, but fails to do so when there's a {{short description}} template above the hatnote (e.g. Special:Diff/911245313). --Paul_012 (talk) 10:32, 18 August 2019 (UTC)

 Y Patch filed. SD0001 (talk) 10:02, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

───────────────────────── @MusikAnimal: Since the regular maintainer Amorymeltzer is on an extended wikibreak, would you mind merging and deploying a handful of pull requests? 7 of the latest pull reqs (#696 to #685, but excluding #692 which is a big one), are all minor and uncontroversial, and each one has been tested, and so can be merged without any fuss. Thanks, SD0001 (talk) 17:25, 31 August 2019 (UTC)

@SD0001: I've merged and synced all you mentioned but #686. That one I'm a little confused about. I'll revisit it tomorrow. Best MusikAnimal talk 04:12, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Block templates don't workEdit

No dropdowns at all, so I can't block or add a template. Doug Weller talk 11:54, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Me too.--Bbb23 (talk) 12:57, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Me three. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 13:21, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
I had a moment before going to the playground, so should be fixed. Caused by PR 694 not covering all the changes in a template's name. cc SD0001 and MusikAnimal ~ Amory (utc) 13:35, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Working again for me. Thanks! The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 13:37, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Thankfully! That was not fun doing manually. N.J.A. | talk 13:40, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, thank you.--Bbb23 (talk) 13:41, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Whoops, sorry about that! I was sure I tested this change before deploying. Many thanks to Amorymeltzer for stepping in. We've missed you! :) MusikAnimal talk 15:17, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
And thanks from me. Such pleasure when it worked again! Doug Weller talk 16:03, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
Welcome back Amorymeltzer! Glad to see you're back to save the day, again :) Looks like the old block module got loaded anyway when I tested it, sorry! SD0001 (talk) 16:36, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Bug report: Twinkle replacing "#" in revert summaries with "/"Edit

Just noticed that when using a revert function with an optional edit summary, Twinkle is replacing hash symbols ("#") with forward slashes, which makes it inconvenient for providing links to discussions. For example I tried to provide links to a few archived discussions when reverting an IP a few minutes ago, and only later realized that my edit summary rendered as this. Can the devs check that out? Ivanvector (Talk/Edits) 17:51, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

@Ivanvector: Didn't happen for me, even with your text. I suppose it's unlikely you typoed twice, so could it be IP-specific? ~ Amory (utc) 18:13, 5 September 2019 (UTC)
Odd. Thanks for checking, I'll report back if it happens again. Ivanvector (Talk/Edits) 18:37, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Wrong block, wrong log summary?Edit

I used Twinkle drop-down menus to block an account because it was being misused by someone other than the apparent "owner". The talk-page notice and edit summary are – as intended – those for {{uw-ublock-famous}}, but the actual (hard) block and the block log summary ("<!-- Username closely resembles another user, hard block -->") seem to be those for {{uw-ublock-double}}. Did I do something dumb, or is there a glitch here? Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 10:51, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

I now see that the same happened with this block in May, also intended to be {{uw-ublock-famous}}. Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 11:10, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Requesting assistanceEdit

Dear developers of this script, I have never used it, but, as I studied Wikipedia for an long time before creating my account, I saw that it was perfect. My page an XTools (here) says that I am autovonfirmed; so I'm supposed of being able to access it. However, it does not appear to the "gadgets" page on my preferences; I searched "twinkle", "tw", "t" and "w" with my browser's search function, but still nothing. Could you please advise me? Again congratulations, Swift2 global (talk) 18:55, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

@Swift2 global: Just be patient! You are not yet autoconfirmed. The "Rights changes" panel at the bottom of the XTools report says you will become autoconfirmed at 2019-09-15 13:39 (UTC), which is four days after your account was registered. -- John of Reading (talk) 19:16, 11 September 2019 (UTC)
@John of Reading: Thanks for your advise! I thought that that section meant that I am indeed autoconfirmed, not that it's scheduled to then. As I know some basics, I can't wait using the script (but I will be patient, as you said :-) ). Best regards, @ global (post something) 19:21, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

Feature request: section taggingEdit

I'm sorry if this has already been requested before, but it would be nice if, when using the "Tag" feature in section editing mode it instead gave a list of sectional tags and put them in the proper spot below the section heading. Ionmars10 (talk) 02:25, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

687. SD0001 (talk) 10:06, 31 August 2019 (UTC)
  Coding... I have started on this. @Ionmars10: Please create a list of section tag templates that you want to see added in Twinkle (along with the wiki-markup, eg. for Cleanup bare URLs, it will be {{Cleanup bare URLs|section}}.) SD0001 (talk) 13:10, 17 September 2019 (UTC)


There is an issue with Twinkle's handling of Template:Welcome-image, as evidenced by this edit; it is listing my username and then the signature. Could this be fixed?--Launchballer 18:13, 17 September 2019 (UTC)

I actually think this is the fault of the template. It was changed in 2014 which, for some reason, meant that the first parameter toggled whether "Again, welcome" showed up or not. That's... wildly non-standard, so I assume it was a mistake, but that meant that Twinkle's setup (from 2013) would be doing just this. I guess nobody noticed in the intervening five years? I'd suggest doing away with that nonsense in the template and returning the intent to what it was prior. ~ Amory (utc) 19:09, 17 September 2019 (UTC)
