This page is for AWB developers to discuss the development of AWB.

Please do not post bugs, feature requests, and similar on here, unless it is extremely urgent, but in that case it would probably be better to use #AutoWikiBrowser connect on IRC if possible.

How can I send you a potential code change for a requested feature?[edit]

I'm working on, and almost done with, an update to handle a feature request I made, which can now be found at Wikipedia talk:AutoWikiBrowser/Feature requests/Archive 12#Allow on-site saving of lists. This will involve a new form (2 files), as well as some changes to a few other source files. What's the best way to handle it? עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 14:42, 16 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Problem with AutoWikiBrowser[edit]

Hello, I noticed a problem with AutoWikiBrowser. For example, the article Star Wars has a problem on the WikiCode of this article. The problem with WikiCode here is that apostrophes block italics. Look at this sentence: (Star Wars: special edition)

[...] the episode IV, while, in the episode V, the Emperor [...].

Then look at his WikiCode. Don't you see a problem? Well that's what happened with the article I quoted. Only a line break can fix this problem (for now). How else to solve this problem? LéoFatal (talk) 12:28, 15 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Looking at your global contributions, I've worked out that you are talking about the French Wikipedia article, fr:Star Wars. I've made an edit there, adding <nowiki /> at various points so that the three adjacent apostrophe marks, ''' are interpreted as a single apostrophe plus the start of an italic word. This is not an AutoWikibrowser problem - any editor or editing tool will do this, since ''' is the trigger for turning bold on or off. -- John of Reading (talk) 13:18, 15 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Request to help development[edit]

@Reedy and Rjwilmsi: I have several open bug reports/feature requests in Phabricator, some of which I might be able to do fix myself. For example, I could add more templates in TalkPageFixes.cs lines 237-244. Would you guys be willing to let me help out in a probationary way? GoingBatty (talk) 20:46, 1 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, that would be great if you can create patches (SVN diff) of changes that you have made and tested, including unit tests in the patch. Rjwilmsi 18:34, 4 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Rjwilmsi: Thanks for your reply. I've made an account on SourceForge, and can download a file and edit it. Could you please give me a more detailed list of instructions? GoingBatty (talk) 18:14, 5 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
