Main Page styles.css[edit]

Hi sorry to disturb you on your wikibreak. I just want to ask a question about styles.css file (sorry I'm still a learner). I'm an admin on niawp (the only one who knows how to edit the main page) and the community agreed that we simplify the Main Page maintenance by being as close as possible to enwp while keeping it appealing for the eyes of the target readers.

I already spring cleaned the niawp Main Page, but I see that you put the enwp styles.css file in the project namespace (Wikipedia:Main Page/styles.css). How to do that? When I created such styles.css file in the project namespace, it's not recognised as css styles but as a normal page. Thank you. slaiatalk 11:33, 2 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

(talk page stalker) Either create it in template namespace and move it to the Project namespace, or use Special:ChangeContentModel to change the content model of the page to sanitized-css. * Pppery * it has begun... 16:57, 2 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Pppery This might be something to add to WP:TemplateStyles, since it's not the first time I've seen a question like this. Will need to note the special case for user space TemplateStyles, which requires some help from an int admin. Izno (talk) 21:32, 2 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Excellent. Thank you a lot. slaiatalk 07:21, 3 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The Barnstar of Diligence
Hi Izno, I wanted to thank you once more, this time publicly, for all of your contributions to the Arbitration Committee over the past two years. While we only directly overlapped for one of those years, I have seen, while getting up to speed, how much work you've put in as a whole in areas that are key to keeping committee business going but are invisible particularly to the community, which include anywhere from appeals to email management to documentation. Your presence on the committee will be sorely missed, and I hope that after a well-deserved break, you may consider coming back. :-) Maxim (talk) 13:29, 2 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:Article alerts box help[edit]

Hi, I know you've worked on Template:Article alerts box, but isn't the template supposed to show article alerts as a listing? I've checked the backlinks and it's just showing the line that they'll be generated shortly. I don't know how to fix this, could you help? --Funandtrvl (talk) 18:51, 7 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Funandtrvl, not right now. Please ask at WP:VPT to see if assistance can be provided. Izno (talk) 19:23, 8 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Account as a sockpuppet of an IP[edit]

Hi there, this account (AyunaKawai) seems to be a sock of this IP (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · filter log · WHOIS · RDNS · RBLs · http · block user · block log). Will this hold water on WP:SPI? I'm not entirely sure what the original sockmaster account is. John Yunshire (talk) 03:08, 11 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This IP seems to enforce his own peremptory to frame other IPs as sock puppets who have disagreements with his interested topics, which demonstrate in his frequent reversion in specific themed topics even the edits were in good faiths, reverted by him with no sensible explanation and abusing the reporting mechanism by framing opponents as sock puppets.

Abusive sock is back[edit]

Reminding. Your help is still needed. Thanks Ratnahastin (talk) 03:11, 31 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You will need to find someone else to help you. Izno (talk) 03:28, 31 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wrapping fmbox[edit]

Hi, re this edit - why not add |class=mw-parser-output to the ((fmbox))? This would eliminate the need for a wrapper div. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 17:57, 15 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It must be a wrapper div, because TemplateStyles CSS is .mw-parser-output .class-of-interest with only one kind of exception, which this case does not meet. Izno (talk) 18:01, 15 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:41, 15 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do you have a plan for Template:Memory types/styles.css?[edit]

Do you have a plan for ((Memory types/styles.css))? I poked through the talk page and the template's history, but I did not find any mention of it or implementation of it. If it is not needed, you could put ((Db-g7)) on it (I think this works on CSS pages, but I'm not sure), or I could take it to TFD. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:24, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Jonesey95 [1] removed somewhere in the meantime. I have no issue G7ing it. Izno (talk) 22:27, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. Just trying to keep Template space tidy. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:42, 22 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
