Diese Seite ist umgezogen[Bearbeiten]

Mittlerweile habe ich ein SourceForge-Projekt für WikiBlame eingerichtet. Bitte postet Fehlerberichte und Programmwünsche zukünftig dort (Registrierung nicht notwendig, aber empfohlen).

Falls ihr euch fragt, wozu das gut sein soll, hier drei Antworten:

  • Berichte lassen sich einfacher verwalten, sortieren, markieren etc.
  • offener Quellcode, den jeder verbessern kann
  • einfachere Übersetzung durch Betawiki

Ich hoffe, euch gefällt das. --Flominator 14:21, 23. Mai 2009 (CEST)

This page has moved[Bearbeiten]

Meanwhile I created a SourceForge project for WikiBlame. Please post your further bug reports and feature requests there (no registration required, but recommended)

You might ask yourselves what that's for, so I'll give you three reasons:

  • ability to better handle your reports e.g. sort them, mark them etc.
  • open source code, so everyone can improve it
  • better translated interface via Betawiki

I hope you like it, --Flominator 14:21, 23. Mai 2009 (CEST) English

What am I doing wrong?[Bearbeiten]

On the en:Muammar_Gaddafi page, I was looking for the edit in which '{{use dmy dates|' was removed (I obtained it manually). Try as I may, I could not obtain a satisfactory search result using the Blame tool: the search results either reveal all results have the string, or all results do not have it. What am I doing wrong? Do you have any tips on how to configure my search?--Ohconfucius talk16:16, 23. Okt. 2011 (CEST)

Works for me. Did you use these settings? --Flominator 16:20, 23. Okt. 2011 (CEST)
I'm sorry to have troubled you, but I swear I tried many different start dates and many different numbers of edits without finding the search result. Yesterday, when I examined the search results, it seemed that the logarithmic search was only going one way (for example, starting at 250, it then goes down to 125, then 62 etc, without ever swinging the other way to 375). The important thing is that it seems to be working again now. --Ohconfucius 04:44, 25. Okt. 2011 (CEST)
So could it be that I did not check the 'Look for removal of text' box for the search? --Ohconfucius 04:47, 25. Okt. 2011 (CEST)
I think so. --Flominator 09:32, 25. Okt. 2011 (CEST)

How to read the results[Bearbeiten]

Hello,

In the results, what do the red Xs and green Os mean? NewsAndEventsGuy 16:31, 10. Feb. 2012 (CET)

Hi! Does en:User:Flominator/WikiBlame help? --Flominator 19:20, 10. Feb. 2012 (CET)

Linear search[Bearbeiten]

Guten Abend,
Heute abend ist mein deutsch nicht so gut.

Deshalb, auf englisch, I just ran a linear search. Half way into my search, I found the change. Great!

But there is no | Stop | button. I don't want to use server resources that I don't need.

I think hitting Esc worked. Maybe if the screen said "Hit Esc to stop", that would be a good thing.

Vielen Dank für WikiBlame.
Grüße aus Kanada, Varlaam 04:01, 25. Feb. 2012 (CET)

Ich möchte mich dem Dank anschließen - ich verwende WikiBlame oft. Toll, wie das funktioniert! -- Graf-Stuhlhofer (Diskussion) 12:01, 16. Mär. 2012 (CET)

300 version limit[Bearbeiten]

I started a query and the application executed 5 or 6 tests. Then I realized I had set the wrong parameters and restarted it and it says I have exceeded my 300 version limit. Is that a bug? Jojalozzo (Diskussion) 19:12, 9. Mär. 2012 (CET)

No it's a feature. Simple wait for some minutes or start using binary sarch. --Flominator 21:22, 9. Mär. 2012 (CET)

Cross-Site-Scripting vulnerability[Bearbeiten]

Since I think I may have posted this in the wrong place, I want to ask you to fix this XSS problem: http://wikipedia.ramselehof.de/wikiblame.php?user_lang=en&lang=en&project=wikipedia&article=%3Cscript%3Ealert%28%27xss%27%29%3B%3C%2Fscript%3E&needle=something&skipversions=0&ignorefirst=0&limit=500&offmon=3&offtag=28&offjahr=2012&searchmethod=int&order=desc&user= (this will open an alert box in a JS-enabled browser), this allows people to insert JavaScript code in URLs and make unsuspecting users execute it. PiRSquared17 (Diskussion) 04:25, 31. Mär. 2012 (CEST)

Thanks for reporting it, I'll see what I can do. --Flominator 15:45, 6. Apr. 2012 (CEST)

Great idea! (but is it working?)[Bearbeiten]

This is an extremely valuable tool ... if only it works! Unfortunately, my first attempt to use it failed.

I was trying to find when the word "Rittich" was added to the first paragraph of the en:Pogs article. (I have since removed it.) Your utility told me it could not find the word at all.

Happiliy I was able to (manually) find that the word had been added in the very latest edit (at the time) so I was able to easily undo it.

As it stands now, the word was introduced in the edit of 30 March 2012 and deleted in the following edit (by me) on 2 April 2012. But when I re-run the utility, it still says "Your search term was not found at all>"

Thanks for your efforts. As I say, this is an invaluable tool. I am hoping to make good use of it soon.

Frappyjohn (Diskussion) 01:12, 3. Apr. 2012 (CEST)

+1 A great tool indeed (and great time saver), I used it for the first time today and I really like it. thanks--Kmhkmh (Diskussion) 00:40, 6. Mai 2012 (CEST)
Thanks for your report. Strings that only have been present for a short time are a problem to the Binary search algorithm used for your query. It doesn't work with 500 but it works with 5. In such cases you might get better results by using linear search. Regards, --Flominator 19:04, 6. Apr. 2012 (CEST)

Algorithm[Bearbeiten]

Hi. Yours is a great tool, but I do not understand fully the algorithm. Why do you compare each time adiacent revisions ("comparing 327 with 326 while coming from 423") and not simply: "500-not present; 250-not; 125-yes; 187-not; 156-yes..." and so on, like in classical binary search? (though I read - I don't remember where and why - that ternary search could be somewhat more efficient). And why you start midway (at 250) rather than from the oldest revision (500), so to discover at once whether the expression was already present there? Thanks. (Please answer here, since my IP changes). --87.10.225.184 09:46, 16. Apr. 2012 (CEST)

You forgot to answer to my questions. --87.7.215.99 01:16, 21. Mai 2012 (CEST)
Again, you forgot to answer to my questions. --79.19.234.92 17:07, 21. Jun. 2012 (CEST)

Suggestion[Bearbeiten]

When WikiBlame prints the line "Insertion found ...", could it also include the URL of the diff? (And thanks for a very useful tool). -- John of Reading (Diskussion) 09:46, 3. Mai 2012 (CEST) (en:User:John of Reading).

The links within the output are diff links. Regards, --Flominator 10:03, 3. Mai 2012 (CEST)
Oh, I see. The final "Comparing" line has the diff link, and then the "Insertion found..." line has the links to the before and after versions. Silly me. -- John of Reading (Diskussion) 18:42, 5. Mai 2012 (CEST)
+1. Maybe this is an indication that the current design is not very intuitive.
Anyway, thanks for creating this tool. It is very useful! Smile.png Helder.wiki (Diskussion) 16:19, 24. Jun. 2012 (CEST)

Searching inside a ref[Bearbeiten]

Hi,
I am trying to determine when a footnote was deleted.
So I check for a unique word inside the footnote. But it is never found.
WikiBlame ignores the content of footnotes?
Varlaam (Diskussion) 02:21, 12. Jun. 2012 (CEST)

Try checking "Force searching for wikitext". Regards, --Flominator 08:18, 12. Jun. 2012 (CEST)

Multilingual wikisource[Bearbeiten]

Is it possible to use it on oldwikisource:? Helder.wiki (Diskussion) 14:53, 22. Jun. 2012 (CEST)

That's a good one. I'll see what I can do. --Flominator 15:21, 22. Jun. 2012 (CEST)
Funny! That was already possible, just not documented: Enter "blank" as language. --Flominator 07:43, 23. Jun. 2012 (CEST)
Actually it even IS documented: en:User:Flominator/WikiBlame#Language --Flominator 07:44, 23. Jun. 2012 (CEST)
In that case I think there is some bug, because when I leave the field empty the tool insert "pt" by default and I never get the result from multilingual wikisource. For example, if I want to use it on oldwikisource:Talk:Me cal mouri and go to
http://wikipedia.ramselehof.de/wikiblame.php?article=Talk%3AMe_cal_mouri&user_lang=&lang=&needle=Source&force_wikitags=on&project=wikisource
what I get is
which correspond to wikisource:pt:Talk:Me cal mouri Helder.wiki (Diskussion) 16:19, 24. Jun. 2012 (CEST)

I didn't say leave it blank, but enter "blank" :) See [1] :) --Flominator 18:12, 24. Jun. 2012 (CEST)

Facepalm (yellow).svg. Thanks!
BTW: in case you want a portlet link which give you easy access to WikiBlame, you can use a script like the one I just fixed. Helder.wiki (Diskussion) 14:55, 26. Jun. 2012 (CEST)

Diff link ? Change link, permanetly close diff link?

Have you changed the code for WikiBlame?[Bearbeiten]

For the past several months, WikiBlame continues to fail every time I use it.
(But I still think of it as being 100% reliable.)

Here is the output from my last search. I am determining who changed the spelling standard for this article from Commonwealth to American:

The version history of Jantar_Mantar_(Jaipur) is being searched for modelled as plain text

This is the second of two searches.
I originally checked for the spelling modeled (1 L). That search showed modelled (2 L's) changing to modeled (1 L) in 2009.
So when did 2 L's first appear?
That search is the one above ^^^ where it fails to find "modelled" even though it had already found "modelled" in 2009 two minutes earlier.
Varlaam (Diskussion) 18:00, 11. Nov. 2012 (CET)

Hi Varlaam, you're right, the search fails. But when you click on [Search from here] in the first line, your search will lead to this one, which shows that the two L where there from the beginning. Does this help? --Flominator 18:40, 11. Nov. 2012 (CET)

Integration with "edit screen" in MediaWiki[Bearbeiten]

Integration in revision history of en.wp

Hi and thanks for the marvellous tool. Is there any way to integrate WikiBlame with the "edit screen", so that I could just click a link and WikiBlame would pop up with a pre-filled page title? If the highlighted text would get filled-in to that would be ideal. The productivity would benefit greatly. I'm mostly editing en.Wikipedia (if there is no cross-MediaWiki integration possible). --Kubanczyk (Diskussion) 15:47, 27. Nov. 2012 (CET)

Dear Kubanczyk, thanks for liking my tool. In English Wikipedia it is already integrated in the revision history page (see screenshot). Regards, --Flominator 18:46, 25. Dez. 2012 (CET)

Limit of 5000 versions[Bearbeiten]

Is the number of "Versions to check" limited to at most 5000? –Temporal User (Diskussion) 11:24, 31. Dez. 2012 (CET)

Correct. --Flominator 08:04, 3. Jan. 2013 (CET)

== exact strings == I поиск through the history of en:Luttrell псалтири for the source of an apparent misspelling: A woman's имя "ангелов", which I suspect should be "Агнес". It turns out to have been present in the first version of the article, but that's a red herring: WikiBlame? "ангелов" в "every" version of "every" article " I look at in English Wikipedia. (Случайные процессы: en:Уильям Auld, en:дизель, en:suppository.) That's because it хиты the word "ch"'ангелов"'" in the sidebar of every article. I tried prefixing a blank to the search term, but the engine "corrects" the entry by зачистки it off. I tried quotation marks, both сингл (') и двойной ("), but the engine apparently принимает их literally and @ no matches. It's already clear that the engine ignores дело differences. Is there any way to run an exact match, or to search only the text of the page, not the шаблонный? В answering, please put a note on my отправке писем пользователям on English WP, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Thnidu. I very rarely look at эти ассоциации и структуры. Thnidu (обсуждение) 04:25, 3. Ян. 2013 (CET) :That's quite a good one :) Searching for wikitext seems to find the correct edit [2]. Между тем, I fixed the html на вирусы as well.

Hallo liebe IP, wenn du ein Wikimedia-Projekt durchsuchen möchtest, findest du WikiBlame hier. Willst du eine eigene Installation davon erzeugen, um z.B. ein anderes Wiki durchsuchen zu können, wirst du es hier bei SourceForge. --Flominator 16:38, 6. Feb. 2013 (CET)
muchas gracias Flominator. Werds gleich auf Herz+Nieren testen;) Grüsse--178.197.234.55 00:09, 7. Feb. 2013 (CET)

Documnentation is terrible[Bearbeiten]

The "manual" at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Flominator/WikiBlame is terrible. It does not even come close to explaining how one is supposed to use this tool. Sorry. 86.160.211.55 19:49, 21. Mär. 2013 (CET)

Please give some example, of what you want to find and I'll explain it to you. --Flominator 20:22, 21. Mär. 2013 (CET)
Eventuell fehlt ihm ein Flohspiel-Beispiel wie in der deutschen Anleitung?
Hier möchte ich meine Frage anfügen: Was muss ich eingeben (speziell Parameter: Projekt), wenn ich eine Seite auf commons durchsuchen möchte? Z.B.: Seit wann gibt es das Wort "Guidelines" auf der Seite Commons:Quality images candidates?
So gehts jedenfalls nicht.
Aber ich geb nicht auf. Finde heraus, das der Text von der Unterseite Commons:Quality_images_candidates/Intro stammt (warum geht der direkte wikilink Commons:Quality images candidates/Intro eigentlich nicht?) und diese nur eingebunden ist... daher: Neuer Versuch. Leider auch erfolglos. Was tun????
Danke und beste Grüße, --W like wiki (Diskussion) 19:39, 30. Apr. 2013 (CEST)
ps.:Ich erklär mich auch gern bereit, die Anleitungsseite dann um dieses Beispiel samt Lösung zu bereichern, zumindest die deutsche:)
Das hier wäre ein Anfang, der aber nicht ganz zum Ziel führt. Selbiges erreicht man aber hiermit. Hilft dir das weiter? Ich würde sagen, dass du einfach den Commons-Namespace vergessen hast. Gruß, --Flominator 20:31, 30. Apr. 2013 (CEST)
Hmm, aller klar. Dank dir für die schnelle antwort! An den unterseiten lag s also nicht, super! Ich finde nur, dass man etwas um die ecke denken muss um darauf zu kommen, das "commons" 2mal angeben werden muss. Aber egal, wenns so funktionert, dann macht mans halt so. Und das ist das wichtigste, denn ohne deinem Programm würde es eeeeewig dauern. Danke nochmal. Ich poste das bsp mal so in der anleitung. LG --W like wiki (Diskussion) 00:40, 1. Mai 2013 (CEST)
ach so: Und hast du ne ahnung, warum der direkte wikilink Commons:Quality images candidates/Intro eigentlich nicht geht?
Ja: Die Seite "Quality images candidates/Intro" liegt auf Commons im Namensraum Commons und ist daher bereits auf Commons nur über "Commons:Quality images candidates/Intro" zu erreichen. Wenn du von Wikipedia aus darauf verlinkten willst, ist das ein Interwiki-Link, ebenso wie das :en: bei en:Hinterzarten. Daher brauchst du dort noch Commons: als Präfix. Mit Commons:Commons:Quality images candidates/Intro funktioniert es. --Flominator 11:44, 1. Mai 2013 (CEST)
Achso, das erklärt dann auch, warum ich in der Eingabemaske 2mal "commons" eingeben muss. Danke. --W like wiki (Diskussion) 19:22, 1. Mai 2013 (CEST)

WikiBlame findet nichts[Bearbeiten]

Irgendwas scheint kaputt gegangen zu sein, Wikiblame behauptet bei jedem meiner Versuche standhaft, dass das was ich suche, noch nie im Artikel zu finden war. Als ein Beispiel: [3]. Eigentlich müsste diese Änderung gefunden werden, aber ich bekomme nur ein

  • Prüfe Änderung vom 17:43, 3. Nov. 2010 zwischen 10 und 11 von 20 aus:XX
  • Prüfe Änderung vom 12:37, 17. Jun. 2011 zwischen 5 und 6 von 10 aus:XX
  • Prüfe Änderung vom 23:10, 26. Jun. 2012 zwischen 2 und 3 von 5 aus:XX

Wenn ich die Suche nach Wikitext erzwinge, funktioniert es, also scheint es irgendein Problem beim Holen des HTML zu geben. --Schnark 12:15, 23. Mai 2013 (CEST)

I've been having similar problems with my WikiBlame searches recently. Here are my results of a search:

wikitech.wikimedia.org[Bearbeiten]

Hi!

Is it possible to add support for wikitech.wikimedia.org to WikiBlame? I tried this query but it didn't work. Helder.wiki (Diskussion) 19:47, 24. Jun. 2013 (CEST)

The thing is that it automatically redirects to https. I'll see, what I can do. --Flominator 22:05, 24. Jun. 2013 (CEST)

Heh, das ist lustig. Ich hab gerade den Code durchsucht. Ich helfe in einer Wiki mit, die nur per https erreichbar ist und hab mir deswegen angeschaut, wie der code dieses tools ist und war überrascht, dass der Code per se so wie er ist direkt ohne Änderungen in unserer wiki (auf deiner Seite) funktionieren müsste... bis ich auf das hardkodierte http gestoßen bin.

HTML 4.01 Validator Button[Bearbeiten]

user contributions[Bearbeiten]

Hi Flominator, I'm wondering how possible it would be to modify WikiBlame to look at contributors rather than articles for specific content. That might be used to see if a user has made particular sorts of contributions ('positive' or 'negative'). So rather than downloading all the "versions to check" it would download the pre-post edit version of each page contributed to. Maybe also with some control to ensure if the user's edit was reverted in the next edit that was noted....sound interesting/and possible? Sjgknight (Diskussion) 16:01, 16. Sep. 2013 (CEST)

Hi, sounds like some effort, but also interesting. Can you maybe describe some example? Regards, --Flominator 19:38, 14. Okt. 2013 (CEST)

Incorrect result[Bearbeiten]

Hi, this search comes up with an incorrect result: [5]

It reports "Insertion found between 20:23, 19 May 2009 and 05:15, 23 May 2009". The diff includes "Green" but not "great", as required.

This diff, dated 7 March 2011, is the one that I was looking for.

Hope this helps – Fayenatic london (Diskussion) 17:32, 10. Nov. 2013 (CET)

That's a good one :) When performing your search "Great" is found because of "Al Green's Greatest Hits" included by the template. When you select "Force searching for wikitext", you get exactly the result you were looking for. Thanks for the message anyway, --Flominator 19:26, 10. Nov. 2013 (CET)

Incorrect result[Bearbeiten]

Just out of curiosity, I tried the wikiblame search for a change I had made to the English Wikipedia article en:The Freight and Salvage. I had added Sue Draheim on 22 October 2013. The search result for Sue Draheim came up: "Your search term was not found at all". Why did I get this result? Thanks for your help. Vielen Danke für Seine Hilfe.--Akhooha (Diskussion) 04:11, 16. Nov. 2013 (CET)

Since the default search uses some Binary search algorithm it takes a first look within the middle of the last 500 revisions and then tries to find the insertion by taking the correct half of that half and so on. It might be possible that this doesn't work correctly with the change introduced in the last revision. Using linear search which basically checks one revision before the next would have found it. Does this help? Regards, --Flominator 12:40, 16. Nov. 2013 (CET)
Yes, using the link to the linear search that you provided (Using linear search), the search revealed the correct result. I do have a question, however, and that is when I tried to do a linear search without using your specially directed link, I get the following message: "Your search might query 500 revisions at one time. In order to protect the server, you are only allowed to query for 50 per call. Please change the settings or switch the search method to binary!" and I am unable to proceed to a linear search. If I want to do a linear search in the future do I have to figure out how to use the URL syntax you used in order to do so? Thanks for your quick reply and for your attention.--Akhooha (Diskussion) 01:20, 18. Nov. 2013 (CET)
The error message is needed in order to keep away huge queries to the server. It is calculated using the field "Versions to check" and the two skip fields above that one. Just select less revisions to search or skip some revisions and the linear search will be performed. Does that help? --Flominator 09:08, 18. Nov. 2013 (CET)
Yes, that does help. Thank you for pointing out which fields to make the adjustments in. Now I understand how to make it work. Thanks again for your help.--Akhooha (Diskussion) 21:04, 18. Nov. 2013 (CET)

Untranslatable string?[Bearbeiten]

The string "reversing the list" doesn't seem to be up for translation in translatewiki.net, can you check that out? Also, it shows up in the interface "glued" to the next string (e.g. I'm seeing: "reversing the list50 edições encontradas" using the Portuguese interface). Cheers, Waldir talk 18:32, 29. Dez. 2013 (CET)

@Waldir: Thanks for your message. To me this looks like some forgotten debug output. Will you lose any information, when I simply remove it? Regards, --Flominator 18:55, 29. Dez. 2013 (CET)
Sorry for the delay (we really need cross-wiki notifications...). No, I won't lose any information, so in case you haven't done so already, feel free to go ahead and remove the string :) --Waldir talk 20:33, 22. Mär. 2014 (CET)
Should be done by now. --Flominator 20:55, 22. Mär. 2014 (CET)

Seems to be broken[Bearbeiten]

The WikiBlame site seems to be broken. At the header is the following text:

Please fix this wonderful tool! - 2001:558:1400:10:78BC:4C64:2414:814F 18:31, 6. Jan. 2014 (CET)

Me too. I use it multiple times per day. I hope the fix is easy. SchreiberBike (Diskussion) 18:34, 6. Jan. 2014 (CET)
The hosting provider changed something in the configuration. Problem is solved. Glad you like it, --Flominator 19:33, 6. Jan. 2014 (CET)

sorry - funktioniert nicht... oder regeln der benutzbarkeit total unintuitiv...[Bearbeiten]

wenn ich im artikel Sympathikotonie, version de, nach dem suchbegriff "sympathikotoniker" suche, warum werden mir denn versionen gefunden, in denen der begriff garnicht vorkommt...??? z.b. dieser hier: https://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Sympathikotonie&diff=prev&oldid=12253559 oder andere, in denen der begriff nicht bearbeitet wurde...? jedenfalls das auffinden der version, wo der begriff das erste mal auftaucht - eigentlich der zweck der übung! - ist nicht möglich... ich bitte um bessere erklärung der handhabung oder überarbeitung der software. danke auf jeden fall für die selbstlosen bemühungen um das vorwärtskommen der menschheit...

@HilmarHansWerner: Ich vermute einfach mal, dass du WikiBlame mit diesen Einstellungen ausgeführt hast (diese URL wäre am Ende der Seite auch kopierbar gewesen). Die mit XO markierte Version vom 04:03, 13. Okt. 2006, ist die, nach der du gesucht hast. Wenn du konkrete Verbesserungsvorschläge hast, bitte her damit. Gruß, --Flominator 10:45, 4. Feb. 2014 (CET)

Please strip tags[Bearbeiten]

Hello Flominator,

First off: Thank you for making this usefull tool, I have used it many times when trying to figure out when a certain part of a page was edited. But when I was looking who added a certain comment to a page I looked up "<!--" in your WikiBlame tool, to my suprise the last part of the page was cut off.
It would be really usefull if you could fix it, both to increase the tools usefullness and to prevent Cross Site Scripting problems.

Thanks again,
HiddenKnowledge

P.s. I can only speak/read Dutch and English.

Thanks. I suppose your search was this one. Should be fixed by now. Regards, --Flominator 13:54, 9. Feb. 2014 (CET)

WikiBlame doesn't search the latest version![Bearbeiten]

For example

version 1: text = ""
version 2 (latest): text ="hello"

I want to find when "hello" was added. WikiBlame cannot find it.--Gqqnb (Diskussion) 05:34, 17. Feb. 2014 (CET)

Hi Gqqnb, please tell me which article you tried, so I can check the log file for a potential reason. Regards, --Flominator 20:13, 17. Feb. 2014 (CET)

New translation[Bearbeiten]

Hello! I just want you to know that there is (at least) one new translation for Wikiblame on translatewiki.net: Sardinian (sc). Thank you for your work, bye!--L2212 (Diskussion) 19:48, 7. Mär. 2014 (CET)

Thanks for the hint. Siebrand didn't commit the new translations to my repository yet, so it might take some days until it is live. Have a nice day, --Flominator 17:35, 8. Mär. 2014 (CET)

RFE: Please add diff link to results[Bearbeiten]

Thank you for the tool. I have found it quite useful for a long time now.

I find that it would be very helpful for there to be a link added to show a diff of the versions being compared. Most of the time I use the tool I find that I click on the link to the version in which the search string was added or removed and then on that page immmediatly click on the link to show the diff from the previous version. Almost all the time I am interested in what the change was from the previous version not the actual contents of the version in which the string is found to have been added or removed. It would save time and effort to be able to click on a single link rather than have to load the page and immediately load the diff. Thanks. Makyen (Diskussion) 03:36, 10. Mai 2014 (CEST)

Long pages seem to time out, but with no response[Bearbeiten]

You'll probably see in the logs I was trying to find this diff. The page is long and Wikipedia does take a little time to display differences, so I don't mind WikiBlame timing out, but it should return an error message, at least. Mark Hurd (Diskussion) 18:40, 6. Jul. 2014 (CEST)

Search doesn't work[Bearbeiten]

This search function would have been very useful... if it worked. It is very easy to view older version of a page and to compare two versions of that page (cf View History). But searching for a search string in an older version of a particular page doesn't work.

E.g. I compared two versions (8 Dec 2008) of the page about Gordon H. Bower (<https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Gordon_H._Bower&diff=prev&oldid=256451454>). The second page mentions Lera Boroditsky. But if I try to search this page (search string = 'Boroditsky') with WikiBlame, the page cannot be found...

<quote> The version history of Gordon_H._Bower is being searched for Boroditsky as plain text 25 versions found Comparing differences in 07:38, 29 August 2007 between 12 and 13 while coming from 24:XX [Search from here] Comparing differences in 04:43, 28 January 2007 between 18 and 19 while coming from 12:XX [Search from here] Comparing differences in 04:24, 28 November 2006 between 21 and 22 while coming from 18:XX [Search from here] Comparing differences in 22:23, 1 October 2006 between 22 and 23 while coming from 21:XX [Search from here]

No differences found in searched revisions. Your search term was not found at all. Check the settings and try again. Execution time: 7 seconds </quote>

Why does WikiBlame say it has found 25 versions while not giving any reference to those versions found and then saying the search term was not found at all? Not very helpful IMHO.

BTW: what is the use of: <quote> The tool searches the version history of an article in order to find a certain character string. Versions which contain the searched string are marked with OOO, while versions lacking it show XXX. Skipped versions are identified by ???. </quote>

Versions lacking the search string? Is this a joke?

[6] works for me. Maybe you changed the start date to a point before the insertion was made?
As for the help text - I don't really get your problem with it, the "XX" is even found in your very quote from above... --Katimpe (Diskussion) 20:54, 20. Jul. 2014 (CEST)
