Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like). Steven Walling 02:06, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. This is cool. I'm wondering if threads will someday work with interwiki linking. As in m:Extention talk:LiquidThreads and v:Talk:LiquidThreads. Oh by the way m:Extention talk:LiquidThreads should map to mw:Extention talk:LiquidThreads because most of those type page at Meta have been moved to MediaWiki.org.

Here are some things that would be nice to figure out:

  • how to set up a page where all thread titles could be browsable
  • limit editing threads to registered users only
  • easily see recently updated threads
  • move threads from one page to another
  • are very old threads deleted? if so after how long and how to change the time threshold

LiquidThreads installation (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

Is it possible for someone to provide information about LiquidThreads installation. I am working on an internal wiki where we are interested in utilizing LiquidThreads, but I am unable to get it to work. A number of the hooks inside the code don't seem to have any referents, so I believe the code in the extensions download folder may be incomplete.

Try contacting User:Eloquence.

Editing others' posts (1)

I know it's not really in the spirit of wiki... but it there any way we can stop others from being able to edit out posts?

Tonyk: there's not a way to stop other people who are logged to edit your posts or pages you edit/create, but your best defense is to add pages that you post to or edit to your Watchlist (see: Wikieducator_tutorial/Communication_and_Interaction/Useful_features and turn on the email option on your User preferences. This way you will get an email whenever a page or post you have created is edited and you can see the history of edits to see what was edited.

Bug - time setting displayed on thread posts (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

In MW, users have the preference to offset the server time for the local time zones.

For example in my case -7 hours from UTC.

So on the recent changes page - the times of talk page entries are displayed in local time, however on the LiqudThread pages the time displayed does not take the user preference settings into account.

Cheers

just individual histories of threads it seems. Makes it very difficult to see what has changed on a page.

Talk pages w/out LiquidThreads - NOLQT (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

I thought I'd posted this somewhere already, but I can't seem to find it anymore, so will repost. In some situations I don't think that LQT is ideal, and I'm wondering if there might be some way to designate on a page that you don't want LQT, something like __NOLQT__ perhaps? I'm actually finding that since LQT was added I'm posting less and less to Talk pages. I'd actually argue that LQT is more of something that you specifically add to pages rather than the default, more like you'd use an extension than a default feature. brent 23:09, 4 November 2007 (CET)

Summary feature is cool - how do we archive (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

Hi Erik & David,

I see that that summary feature is now filtering through for threads that are older than 14 days.

COOL feature.

In cases where there are only one or two posts in a thread - a simple phrase is all that would be needed for the summary. Where there is only a single post or comment in a thread - it may make sense to move the relevant posts into the archive.

How do you archive a thread?

Cheers Wayne

Ok have tried to write two summaries on this page - Nice to have a summary on top of the thread:

A few observations and possible bugs:

  • After writing and saving a summary - a "summary" tab appears on the page - somewhat confusing because the user is on the relevant summary page.
  • Its difficult to navigate back to the discussion page or corresponding article.
  • In cases of single posts or "closed" discussions - it would be rather nice to be able to archive the thread, not sure how we are supposed to archive threads <smile>.

Always fun testing new technology.

The summarized threads are automatically archived after another 14 days. This delay is to allow for an edit war over the summary itself. Manual archiving of unsummarized threads, perhaps by admins only, is a possible future feature.

The navigation problems are a serious known bug.

Best regards,

Thanks David,

Automated archiving is better. I was under the impression that once the prompt for summarising appears that users were required to take a decision about whether to archive or not and do this manually.

Automated archiving after another 14 days is really COOL.

I can hardly remember life before LQT and these days when I visit a MW installation without LQT I experience withdrawal symptoms :-).

Cheers

A cool feature indeed!

Would it make sense to have the box requesting a summary (and archive) to appear only if the length of the discussion is more than x characters?

and to have an option to remove the box - e.g. if the discussion is expected to take a long time, or if the discussion should remain visible indefinitely? - Perhaps an "extend" button which will give it another 14 days?

(The box implies the discussion is dead - sometimes I start a discussion but do not invite everyone all at once within two weeks - and would prefer the box not to appear.).

Alternatively, just include two unobtrusive links on all discussions: "extend" and "summarise and archive" ?? - Ktucker 12:08, 27 November 2007 (CET)

←In reply to Summary feature is cool - how do we archive (2) by Mackiwg, above:

Don't mind me, just testing LiquidThreads. Question: What determines the color of a user's signature?

When a talkpage is shown, colors are assigned to users in the order that they are encountered. But once a color has been used for a certain user, that user gets the same color throughout the talkpage. But they may get a different color on another talkpage.

When I clicked "Start a new discussion" without being logged in I got this message: "The action you have requested is limited to users in the group user." Not very helpful is it? Can it be changed to the "You need to be logged in to start a new discussion ... etc."

Oh, BTW I originally wanted to Start a new thread to say thanks and well done to Erik for getting this system online. I always kind of enjoyed being a guinea pig for new technology :-)

Wishlist -UI (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

This is my wish-list for UI improvements. (they are all very low priority)

  • When hovering over ANY part of the Signature line (including the blank space to the right of it) all the blue links (but only the blue ones) are hilighted. It would be nice to have each link hilight on hover.
  • When replying to a message the edit box is indented to the level of the message you are replying to. Besides looking ugly, this can become problematic with deeply nested threads, particularly if you have added buttons through monobook.js.
  • Shouldn't the subject field be on top of the message input box?
  • wouldn't it be useful to auto fill the summary field with something like "phsi replies to mackiwg RE: Some Thread Subject" when replying to a thread.

Bug - Notification of new message (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

I've noticed that when a new message is posted on my User:talk page - I don't seem to be getting the default notification that "you have new messages".

Should be fixed now.

This should currently be shown in the watchlist, but I've already asked David to also override the old style notifications for user-to-user messages.

Bug - Installation of LQT is registered as a valid message on new User:Talk pages (1)

There have been no changes to this discussion for at least 14 days. If it is concluded, you may want to write a summary.

With reference to new accounts, on the new user's page listing ( http://www.wikieducator.org/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=newusers&user=&page=) - LQT shows that all new accounts have a message posted (blue link) when in fact there is no real message on the relevant User's talk page.

Difficult to manage personal welcome messages for new account holders.

Fixed.

Yea, i agree. I've been finding this a bit annoying. Its funny how you become quite unconsciously accustomed to the simplest of navigation clues ... and actually how effective they were.

We should consistently show red links when there's no LQT thread association. Might be a bit tricky though.

Not tricky, but it could be expensive.
