Script "Reference double" (Error number 78)[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Hallo Stefan, look at article ru:Чемпионат Европы по лёгкой атлетике 2006. I think it will better if script found two references between div and /div tags when they appear. In case of presence div tags it is not necessary to designate error, if refereces less than two between div and/div tags --Askakun 00:54, 16. Okt. 2009 (CEST)

Two ideas[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Hi! I've two ideas for your script.

  1. A new error for detect the HTML tag <a ...> and substitute it with [[...]] as is for error 038 (<i> with ''...'') and error 026 (<b> with '''...''').
  2. In error 069 "ISBN wrong syntax" can check also for "ISBN: nnnnnn"; with the colon don't work the Special:BookSources

What do you think, they're useful? --Beta16 17:11, 30. Sep. 2009 (CEST)

WikiCleaner[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Proposition for more configuration per Wikipedia[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Hi again.

A user asked me to automatically add links to error description in the comments when an error has been fixed with WikiCleaner. I thought about this on how to make it work with several Wikipedia without needing to add many configuration into my own tool. My idea is to complete the file you're using for the translations with more properties that you won't use but that I can use. For example, if the fr project wants to have links to the description of error 6, they would add a line error_006_link_frwiki=P:CS/006 END in the file for traductions.

This principle could be extended for letting projects have more control on the fix proposed by automatic tools (or even for configuring your own detections). For example, on the fr wiki, they suggest to fix error 56 (Link to other language) by using the template lien, so they could add error_056_model_frwiki=Lien END in the traduction file, and my own tool (or other tools) could read this to propose a fix adapted to the wiki.

What do you think of this suggestions ? --NicoV 00:21, 8. Apr. 2010 (CEST)

ISBN-10 and ISBN-13 templates on[Quelltext bearbeiten] has these two templates for use when you need to specify the format of an ISBN number. (I have no idea when you'd really need to do that, but the templates exist.) The syntax looks like this:


These seem to be getting flagged as invalid ISBN syntax, but they are a valid use. Can the software be changed so that it considers these correct? Thanks. --Auntof6 08:00, 17. Jun. 2010 (CEST)

Project filter[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Is there a way to filter all errors in a contry, by project ? (all errors, detailled in the 3 level priority, table and interface, etc, etc...). useless to argue, i suppose you can understand why it should be better...

I think it would be usuful, i don't know hard it is to or even if it is possible to do this but...

Links in headlines[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Hello. Many thanks for providing this tool! It is absolutely useful, but I have one request. I'd like to find out any links in headlines like "=== [[foo]] ===", which should be avoided because of en:Wikipedia:Manual of Style (accessibility)#Links (#3) in enwp and ja:WP:MOS#見出し in jawp (my home wiki). Is it possible to add a feature to detect this? Thanks in advance. --Penn Station 17:36, 25. Jul. 2010 (CEST)

"{{CURRENT" used in articles[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Hello. I'd like to find "{{CURRENT" (e.g. {{CURRENTYEAR}}, {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}}, {{CURRENTYEAR-JST}}, et al.) that is used in articles, not in templates. Especially when they are in headline, difficult to find out. I believe they usually should be avoided in articles (article namespace) because of accuracy in the future. Is it possible to add a feature to detect them? Thanks in advance. --Penn Station 08:29, 28. Jul. 2010 (CEST)

Asterisks (*) inside of brackets[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Leading asterisks inside of brackets are being treated as though the brackets are not there. This causes the internal link to be broken down into a list. Trailing asterisks are left alone. In other words, templates with codes like this:

<span class="plainlinks">This {{pagetype|subjectspace=yes}} was [{{fullurl:{{FULLPAGENAME}}|diff=cur}} last edited] by [[User:{{REVISIONUSER}}|{{REVISIONUSER}}]] {{Toolbar|[[User talk:{{REVISIONUSER}}|talk]]|[[Special:Contributions/{{REVISIONUSER}}|contribs]]}} {{time ago|{{REVISIONTIMESTAMP}}}}. <font size="1">''([{{fullurl:{{FULLPAGENAMEE}}|action=purge}} Purge])''</font></span><noinclude>{{documentation}}</noinclude>

Turn out looking like this:

  • This template was last edited by [[User:
  • Kat*|
  • Kat*]] ([[User talk:
  • Kat*|talk]] | [[Special:Contributions/
  • Kat*|contribs]]) 0 seconds ago. (Purge)

I believe the problem is in the REVISIONUSER command. Because when I replace REVISIONUSER with ~~~ the template works as intended.--*Kat* 07:39, 29. Jul. 2010 (CEST)

False positive on error 67 (reference after punctuation)[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Hi Stefan,

When the reference is after an abbreviation (like etc.), the error 67 is raised, but it shouldn't because the '.' is not really a punctuation but is part of the abbreviation. Would it be possible to have a list of abbreviations for each wikipedia that shouldn't raise an error 67 ? In the French wikipedia, we have added the parameter error_067_abbreviations_frwiki in the translation page for this list, and I have implemented this rule in Wiki Cleaner.

Thanks in advance. --NicoV 20:11, 8. Aug. 2010 (CEST)

Leere Parameter in Vorlagen und anderes[Quelltext bearbeiten]

  • Vorschlag für den Test auf groß geschriebene Überschrift: Prüfe nicht die Gesamtlänge sondern die Länge der Wörter. Besteht die groß geschriebene Überschrift nur aus 4-buchstabigen oder kürzeren Wörtern, ist sie in Ordnung, sonst nicht.
  • Es gäbe sicher unzählige Möglichkeiten, was man noch bei Vorlagen prüfen könnte. Ein leicht prüfbares Detail ist mir neulich aufgefallen: Leere Parameter in Vorlagen können Absicht sein, z.B. in {{Beispiel|a||c|d=e}} (3 unbenannte und 1 benannter Parameter, der zweite unbenannte ist leer). Wenn die Vorlage allerdings nur benannte Parameter enthält, z.B. {{Beispiel
    |a = b|
    |c = d
    , dann kann man sicher davon ausgehen, dass die doppelten Striche (mit Leerraum dazwischen) überflüssig sind (Priorität „low“). Auch {{Beispiel||||d=e}} wäre unnötig weil gleichbedeutend mit {{Beispiel|d=e}}. Fehler sind das deshalb, weil diese leeren Parameter u.a. in der Vorlagenauswertung auftauchen.
  • Ich hätte so gern die Top 100. :-)

Fehler bei ID: 5 (Undefiniertes Ende bei Kommentar)[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Das Problem bei diesem Fehler ist, dass Notice als Ausschnitt des Fehlers logischerweise ein <!-- enthält. Leider verschwinden dann die restlichen Tabellenelemente und der Fehler kann nicht mehr als erledigt markiert werden. Die Zeichen < und > sollten daher escaped und die <nowiki>(!?) entfernt werden.

New type: Wikilinks formatted as external link[Quelltext bearbeiten]

It seems to me that many errors of the type External link with two brackets (ID 86) are in fact links to other Wikipedia pages, such as [[]] . If adding a new type is not too troublesome I'd appreciate a separation between real external links and wrongly formatted internal links. I see that these errors are solved by bots anyway, but are the bots clever enough to reformat internal links properly? -- Nilli 20:50, 29. Apr. 2011 (CEST)

Error #3 in[Quelltext bearbeiten]

I think a fix is needed: in [4] error #3 is empty (or almost empty), but when I check an article for other errors, I found a lot of false positives for #3, where instead of <reference/> is {{References}} (correct, even not recommended) or {{References|#}} (correct, where # is a parameter for disposing references on columns).

#75[Quelltext bearbeiten]

"The article had a list, where one line is indent (:* text). A list don't need an intend with ":". Use more "*" to indent the list."

This is not exactly true.

Example 1:

    • Adding an extra * does not indent a bullet list it puts the bullet list inside another bullet list.

Example 2:

  • To indent a bullet list you need to add a : same as when identing other text.

It is true that :* is often used when ** is better syntax. But the following is a correct way to indent an entire list:


I think the tool should only report :* on lines following lines starting with *. Like:

Suggestion: split error 68 into several sub-categories[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Splitting error 68 into several sub-categories would ease the manual correction work.

So far, I've identified 3 cases that typically need to be handled in different ways:

  • Simple link to corresponding page in another language (same as those inter-language links in the left column). Such a link is often mentioned instead of proper sourcing when (part of) the page results from translation from that other language: the correction then involves proper sourcing. When the page is in very early draft stage (almost no actual content yet), it may even make sense to delete the link altoghether after having checked that the standard inter-language link is available (left column).
  • Link to corresponding page in another language with an anchor to a specific place in that page. The best way to correct these seems to add content that is already available in the other language (e.g. through translation).
  • Link to page in another language that appearantly doesn't correspond to the currrent page (based on existing inter-language links). First one needs to verify that the target isn't indeed a corresponding page: if it is, then inter-language links should be made properly (e.g. not within the text...), otherwise correction may involve conversion into a specific template such as {{link-interwiki}} (English Wikipedia) or {{lien}} (French Wikipedia) to have links to both the "page to create" in local language and the existing page in the other language.

cswiki[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Hallo! Some bugs found:

  • false positive for #34 – 6 articles; (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; the script thinks that sequence "{{{" means parameter of a template; {{#tag:ref| }} isn't error because ref tag can't be inside of another ref tag),
  • false positive for #56 – arrows are checked even they are in the line starting with a space(s); once, sequence "=>" was detected, but the "=" meant a content of a parameter and the ">" meant "greater than" before a digit ({{temp|first=>20}}),
  • false positive for #58 – 1 article, cs:Simson (detected, but there are "/" within the heading),
  • false positives for #65 – 4 articles,
  • if the name of the article with error includes "&", clicking on "edit" directs you to the article whose name is a text before "&".

False positive on error 46 (Square brackets not correct begin)[Quelltext bearbeiten]

False positive is at Mumtaz Ali on enwiki 16:17, 28 January 2013.

False positive text from Check Wikipedia → Homepage → enwiki → high priority → Square brackets not correct begin is:

Mumtaz Ali edit    to Dilli se Dulhan laya re song from Jhula [1942]]      more    2013-01-28 00:31:49     Done

corresponding wikitext uses HTML escape codes and I think should therefore be correct:

to Dilli se Dulhan laya re song from Jhula &#91;1942&#93;]

Special letters at svwiki[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Swedish Wikipedia recently changed sorting algorithm so that most special letters are sorted correctly. This means that áàâãéèêëčňřšž and many other letters can be used in DEFAULTSORT.

ID 28 false positives[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Error number 28, table not correct end, marks many road articles as errors when the tables are fine. Examples: [5], [6], [7]. The tables begin with the normal "{|" but instead of ending with "|}" they use Template:Jctbtm (or its redirects) or Template:LegendRJL. Along with adding more information to the table they also close it, so the articles are correct.

Errors not generated and other suggestions[Quelltext bearbeiten]

Hi! It seems that some errors even if they are switched on are not generated. These are: partialy #2 (<br>), #4 (weblink and no headline), #9 (more categories at one line), #22 (category with space), #35 (image in gallery without description), #87 (entities without semicolon).

Do we still need #3? Articles with <ref> and without <references /> are in system-generated-category defined via MediaWiki:Cite error refs without references.

Error #64 should not be generated only for links like [[foo|foo]] but also for [[Foo|foo]] or [[foo|Foo]].

#34 (programming templates and parser functions): "{{tag:ref|" is not error if it is found within <ref></ref>.

With arrival of Wikidata, we will never need errors #45, #51 and #53. What about substituting them with error which generates articles with interwiki links?
