HTML errors in computing articlesEdit

The wikitext parser is going to change in June, and any page with an error may display strangely. I'm going through Special:LintErrors, and I've found some high-priority errors in articles tagged by this WikiProject.

What's needed right now is for someone to click these links and compare the side-by-side preview of the two parsers. If the "New" page looks okay, then something's maybe technically wrong with the HTML, but there's no immediate worry. If that column looks wrong, then it should be fixed.

The first list is all "deletable table" errors. If you want to know more about how to fix these pages, then see mw:Help:Extension:Linter/deletable-table-tag. Taking the first link as an example, there is highlighting in the wikitext that shows where the lint error is; it's in the large table. It's broken now, and it will be slightly less broken then, but it should get fixed. I suspect that the problem is with the |-|} at the end.

This second list is "misnested tags". See mw:Help:Extension:Linter/html5-misnesting for more information. The highlighting for the first link indicates that the problem for that article is in the infobox. From what I've read, I'd guess that the problem is the line breaks, and I'd bet that those parameters have span tags added by the infobox (span tags can't handle line breaks).

Note that the highlighting from the lintid code won't work reliably after the article has been edited, so for pages with multiple errors, it's best to try to fix them all at once. For more help, you can ask questions at Wikipedia talk:Linter. Good luck, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 23:19, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Nextdoor redraft for considerationEdit


I've redrafted a problematic article, Nextdoor, the hyperlocal social network. Although I am an independent editor, I am a paid consultant to Nextdoor. As such, it would be greatly appreciated if an independent editor could review my proposal at: User:BC1278/sandbox/Nextdoor I have also started a discussion at: Talk:Nextdoor#Request_for_Review
