Cat-a-lot gadget

It would be useful to get the cat-a-lot gadget. How do I put it on, as I'm a local editor there? Or isn't it enabled here? I use it on Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, and (a MediaWiki wiki I own). Yunan (talk) 19:15, 9 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

{{Ping|Yunan}} This is a late response to your question. My suggestion would be to contact a local administrator on the wiki as they would have the permissions to add the gadget. DeeM28 (talk) 18:57, 20 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Page Hit Counter Request

Would you please arrange to install the Page Hit Counter on Wiki Thank you. NavySparker (talk) 12:18, 31 December 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Is this the correct place to post this request? It has been outstanding for a while without any response. NavySparker (talk) 16:39, 22 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Apologies for the delayed response...
  1. This is not the correct place, steward requests or are preferred for feature enablement
  2. The hit counters extension is no longer maintained and no longer works, so we are unable to enable it at this time.
Depending on use case I recommend either utilizing the information found under the Special:Analytics for your wiki or setting up WikiSEO with Google Search console. --NotAracham (talk) 22:19, 24 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Visual Editor Insert Media and Images does not support no-preview links for PDFs

Where should I go to suggest an improvement to the Visual Editor? The visual editor is nice, but I just found that you can't make preview-less PDF links with the Insert Images and Media. In WikiText a previewless PDF link is made as follows [[:File:filename.pdf]] In other words, the File reference starts with a colon ":File:" For now, I will need to use the source editor to make links to pdf files that don't include a preview image. NoLongerOnTheBall (talk) 02:56, 2 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unless this is a bug that can be resolved on WT's end (they can take a look but I doubt it, it would have to be some issue with how WT implements it), this would have to be reported and dealt with upstream. If this results in a patch, SRE can be notified to update the extension. --Raidarr (talk) 13:58, 4 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yep - not a bug... Thank you for pointing me in the right direction Raidarr! NoLongerOnTheBall (talk) 16:17, 4 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Can I adopt a wiki?

Hello! The admins of have been inactive recently, so I am wondering if I can adopt a wiki. I want to know. Thanks. HighineseConlangerAgain (talk) 15:00, 2 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello! This question has gone unanswered for a few days. Can somebody respond? Thanks. HighineseConlangerSchool (talk) 17:18, 4 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It's been 8 days... HighineseConlangerSchool (talk) 22:33, 12 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Apologies for there being no follow up. What I would do is instigate a local election including all steps to try and ensure the admins are really gone and to promote visibility; if there is no opposition after 5 days or so, bring the result here and a steward should be able to handle the rest. --Raidarr (talk) 19:58, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Abbhorent mess of an import

I tried importing several infoboxes from Wikipedia; a task I have succesfully completed before on Miraheze, but this time it completely broke the whole wiki and I cannot do anything about it. Not only did the templates not import correctly, they are now some form of a phantom page, where they are undeletable, uneditable, unnukable but still can be searched for and found for some reason. I tried fixing it which created an even bigger mess. At this point, I gave up on importing stuff and will try to create it all with portableinfoboxes myself, my only wish is to delete all the mess that was created by this whole ordeal, but I am not able to. A full-on db reset would do as well, there isn't anything on the wiki I would miss currently. JerenTV (talk) 12:26, 8 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project is wt:repozitar, going to forward to WT steward attention. Apologies for the delay. --Raidarr (talk) 19:59, 21 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
