Wiki Issues Edit

Twitter and Tabber Edit

Twitter and Tabber should be good now, since before Christmas, using a completely different mechanism.

Slide Show Edit

Basically a rotating banner core, should be as robust as the Blizzard ones is moddleded after. Template:Slideshow. Free to build banners out of anything you can wiki, including content that moves or reacts on its own, not just images with links. Can have multiple 'slide shows' on a page. Will pause on hover, stop on click. Currently 'fixed pace' same as Blizz ones. Works with 'fluid wiki layout' as is. This is bare bones, let me know what you want added. I'm not done documenting it. Can see also MediaWiki:SlideShow/Test and Portal:Main/Promo for further examples. Celess (talk) 01:25, December 8, 2013 (UTC)
JQueryUI and some of the other supporting standard Wikia JavaScript are broken, due to version mismatch issues, causing problems for TOC and for using more advanced effects for slide show. What's been done is that we are now using 1.8.24 JQUI here for the parts we use, and disable loading JQUI dependencies from Wikia until theirs is updated.Celess (talk) 18:15, December 17, 2013 (UTC)
(message moved here for context -celess) Passed what you provided along and tech guys looked into it Winky. I've been informed a change will occur "soon". Not before the end of the year just due to all of the things on their plate, but sometime in January at the soonest. Thanks for pointing it out! Raylan13@Wikia (talk)

Ambox and notices Edit

Has been showing the first bullet in many boxes as just a line with asterisk. This was fixed and several dozen were checked and along with a pretty diverse set of pages using them. Celess (talk) 02:31, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Collapsible class on tables not working Edit

Here's an example: Scroll_of_Resurrection#E-mail_to_send_invitation.
Can you take a look? class="mw-collapsible" seems to work, but just class="collapsible" doesn't. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 19 Feb 2014 8:19 AM Pacific
Ill look. Collapsible is old paste-around code and is deprecated. mw-collapsible is the media wiki replacement. is a part of core and guaranteed to be maintained. Is best to just replace it. Celess (talk) 19:04, February 19, 2014 (UTC)
Entire site has now been converted... Celess (talk) 07:37, February 25, 2014 (UTC)

Map templates Edit

Heya, Celess Winky Our map and coordinate templates aren't functioning across the board. Seeing as how we've not made any changes on our end, I'm fairly positive this is something that got borked by Wikia over the past week. I've filed a bug report already, but if you had any insight I could pass along I'd be grateful. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 21:06, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
Ok i'll go look :) Worst case, we make our end more robust :) Celess (talk) 21:10, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I'll be darned. That was quick! I'll pass along what you said to the eng guys and close the ticket. Thanks! Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 21:45, February 21, 2014 (UTC)

User Tags Edit

Started code updates and consolidation for user name decoration on the wiki, intended for a long time ago during earlier cleanup. Basically this involves cleanup and consolidation of existing code, like 'InactiveUsers' and 'UserRightsIcons' for efficiency on page load, and of course possibly adding Wikia or WoWWiki built enhancements as practicable. Most of the structure was in place already; just not had time. :)
Currently can use the new MediaWiki:UserTags‎‎/code.js, just the same as the old js file for now, for editing roles or names. :) The 'userRightsIcons.js' and 'inactiveUsers.js' scripts are now no longer being used. MediaWiki:UserTags‎‎ is the main page for the module, as noted on WoWWiki:Development. I'll post something later on if changes. Celess (talk) 01:26, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
(moved from section below to here for context) Thanks for MediaWiki:UserTags/code.js. I saw this on w:c:dev, but was too lazy to set it up. Winky --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 19 Mar 2014 5:00 PM Pacific

vandal Edit

Thank you Celes for helping deal with that vandal! It is very much appreciated :D 72.174.76.5 10:26, February 8, 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome Winky Celess (talk) 19:49, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

I already have one

Rename Edit

Thanks for pointing that out - that's totally bad on my end. Was running an experiment to see what effect it might have. I'll change it back over.Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 16:15, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

Search Edit

Tongueout Was actually expecting <!-- --> and didn't even notice. Might have to strike it out permanently, depending on testing. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 17:36, April 21, 2014 (UTC)

Probably because I'm going through 250+ emails at the moment, and the Wikia.css page pops up as being changed *again* right after I made the initial edit. Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 17:47, April 21, 2014 (UTC)

battle pet ability tooltip Edit

Hey could you take a look at the tooltip JS and see what it would take for the |desc= of {{battlepetabilitybox}} to show up in the tooltip? --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 21 Apr 2014 2:35 PM Pacific

Determined vandal Edit

In5Daysthen2010 also is probably using anon edits to vandalize too. See these contributions which follow a similar pattern. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 1 May 2014 9:59 AM Pacific

HI there , i just want to tell you about a anonymous user adding false information to some page here is he http://www.wowwiki.com/User_talk:58.106.39.190 Spark the night fury (talk) 12:45, May 4, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for poking me about it. I brought it to the attention of VSTF Winky Raylan13@Wikia (talk) 16:33, May 5, 2014 (UTC)

-- Profile --Edit

Hi, sorry to bother you, I'm trying to get rid of my "foot-print" here on wowwiki.

I know you can't delete my profil, and that's ok, but could you please delete the following pages that I have created as part of my profile (I've deleted the contents already, but I'd like for the history to be gone as well)?

New View in 3D button Edit

Hi! I heard you are doing templates or something. Anyways, decided to give a try making a bit better 3D VIEW button this site is using. It's the same size etc etc.

Here: http://i.imgur.com/48JRyJQ.png

How it looks like on the site: http://i.imgur.com/wCOJdpP.png

Feel free to use if you like :) —This unsigned comment is by Vinctus (talkcontribs) 08:41, July 28, 2014‎. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Looks pretty good. I'll see how it works after I upload it to WoWWiki. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 29 Jul 2014 4:36 PM Pacific

MMO VIllains Personality Quiz Suggestions?Edit

Hey there, Celess. Doug from Wikia's Community Development Team here! We're in the process of creating  "Which MMO Villian Are You?" personality quiz. I wanted to ask you if you had any character/boss suggestions from WoW that would be a good fit as one of the results. Any sort of major villain in the lore/game with a distinct or memorable personality would be a great fit.

Pitch me any character suggestions if you have any, I appreciate it! Have a good one : > TheBlueRogue @Wikia •(profile)•(talk)•(doug@wikia-inc.com) 19:59, August 6, 2014 (UTC)

Icon hidden or left shift with elink template Edit

Hey, if you have time, can you see if you can figure out why {{elink}} isn't showing the icons? They appear to be shifted left off the window, but I can't figure out what's causing it. I suspect some CSS, but it could be inherited from Wikia stuff. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 7 Aug 2014 7:48 AM Pacific

Quest BoxEdit

I noticed that the Template:Infobox quest could use some tweaks...I made a test template at Template:Testing that allows users to add the maximum level a quest can be obtained, the difficulty levels for the quest (using the new template Template:Difficulty), and simplifies the ability to enter XP/Max Lvl coins/Max Lvl (based on expansion) rewards. Many of the old quests (pre-Cata) should be maxed out at lvl80, as that was the highest possible back then. The coin return on max lvl quests hasn't changed (the coins a player would get for a quest at 80 during Wrath is the same reward they get for that quest at 85 in Cata or at 90 in MoP), but for historical sake, a quest that was removed in the Shattering was never available to be completed at lvl 85. I didn't want to change the template used by all of the quest pages (which, btw, need a lot of TLC cos they're grossly outdated). My "Testing" template is backwards compatible with the current markup on quest pages, so its actually unnoticeable unless the new markup lines are utilized. Please let me know what you think. :)

By the way, I was one of the main Wiki authors and admins for the Chefville Wiki, until I got back into WoW and gave up on Facebook games. I'm now here to help get this Wiki updated. AlexSUCF (talk) 16:29, August 14, 2014 (UTC)

Also, quick addition, I just updated the "Testing" template so that if the tag "Obsolete" is added to the questbox then none of the categories except "Removed in XX" will be generated. It seems wrong to have quests that can't be obtained anymore listed in the lists of quests available at level x or for class y. AlexSUCF (talk) 17:11, August 14, 2014 (UTC)
