Requests for Admin assistanceEdit

In the previous discussions in 2019 it was understood that the exclusion of subpages must be by MfD. I believe that this section "Requests for Admin assistance " should be removed from this talk page.Guilherme Burn (talk) 12:02, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Do you have a link to that consensus? My view is that it's legitimate to request assistance for technical changes, such as when replacing Portal:Foo/Articles/1 to /99 by a template in Portal:Foo which produces similar excerpts, but not as part of demolishing a portal (for example, after quietly replacing its main page by a redirect to a broader portal).

I don't have the link, I can search for discussions, but this is unnecessary. @Certes: you are a witness, like me, of the thousands of excluded subpages that were restored. I think it is better not to repeat the same mistake again, or we exclude via MfD or leave them in limbo for a while.(Or we propose a new criterion for speed deletions)Guilherme Burn (talk) 14:01, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Bug collectionEdit

This section is only for tracking bugs and feature requests, in the MediaWiki software itself, which affect portals. For general technical help with portals or portal-related templates, create a new section on this talk page.

  Do not report new bugs or feature requests in this section – only list them here after a Phabricator task has been created.
  • T196722: Gallery slideshow controls take up more than one line on narrow displays
  • T196723: Gallery slideshow flickers when changing images
  • T194887: Mode slideshow of gallery tag is not working in phone screens
  • T199126: Scribunto/Lua should have a built-in method for retrieving category members

Portals with many imagesEdit

Some portals may time out due to showing too many images. One fix is to combine all images from core articles with a rotating display from one randomly selected non-core article, by moving non-core articles into {{Random item}} so only one is used. For example, Portal:Pakistan used to time out showing images from several provinces and cities. This change keeps images from Pakistan-wide articles but limits local coverage to one article at a time. Certes (talk) 17:58, 7 May 2022 (UTC)

List of portal pagesEdit

I have updated the list of all portal pages in Wikipedia:WikiProject Portal/List of all portals, which was outdated by nearly 4 years. Currently the total number of Portal pages is at 105,352, down from 146,596 in April 2018. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 11:16, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
