Green links on Spanish adjectivesEdit

Hi. When I click on the green links in a Spanish adjective entry, the new entry forms as a noun. Am I doing something wrong? -- ALGRIF talk 14:59, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

I think fixed this problem yesterday. If you clear your cache (ctrl+shift+F5) it should work correctly again. Conrad.Irwin 15:28, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Error on pageEdit

Lately, all Wiktionary pages give me a little yellow triangle at the bottom left (IE7), Clicking on it gives this error message - Line:1058 Char: 17 Error: Expected identifier, string or number Code: 0 - Any ideas? SemperBlotto 09:58, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Should be fixed now (clear your cache (ctrl+shift+F5)), yay for internet explorer having it's own Javascript syntax rules... (though I should have spotted the problem by eye). Conrad.Irwin 14:30, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. By the way, I'm back on IE7 after a brief use of IE8 - paging went through the roof when I had multiple tabs open (typically two Wiktionaries, it.Wikipedia, two Italian dictionaries and a Google). SemperBlotto 07:06, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

contextification requestEdit

Can someone who knows how please convert template:no longer productive to a context template?—msh210 19:13, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for asking for it. DCDuring TALK 19:49, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Er, you're very welcome, if there's, indeed, anything to thank me for. (?)—msh210 19:53, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Thank, you, Ruakh.—msh210 19:47, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for doing it. DCDuring TALK 19:49, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Oh, and now, after all that, I just realized that it was one, and I could have simply reverted.—msh210 19:53, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, the last time it was a context template, {{context}} didn't yet have the tcat= parameter, so if you'd just reverted, {{no longer productive}} would have ended up in Category:Topical context labels. There's been a full iota of progress in the past year. Maybe even 1.5 iotae. :-)   —RuakhTALK 20:42, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Bad links to Wikipedia -- bot run.Edit

I have come across several links to Wikipedia where the Wikipedia article in question does not exist. I don't think there is a predefined script for removing these in PWB but a custom one shouldn't be too tricky. - [The]DaveRoss 22:49, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

{{topic cat}}Edit

Why do Category:nl:Indonesian_derivations and Category:th:Indonesian_derivations add a category like Category:nl:Indonesian_language? After all, it is not needed and Category:th:Chinese_derivations and similar templates do not add it. —Stephen 13:59, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

That's a good question. {{topic cat parents/Chinese derivations}} has explicit code to check if the current language is English, and adds its caller Category:Chinese language iff so; but {{topic cat parents/Indonesian derivations}} uses a helper template that doesn't draw that distinction. I suppose we should simply remove Indonesian language from {{topic cat parents/Indonesian derivations}}, and manually add Category:Indonesian language to Category:Indonesian derivations? —RuakhTALK 16:08, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
I put explicit code checking into {{topic cat parents/Indonesian derivations}}. It seems to be working okay now. —Stephen 22:51, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
