French Wikinews[edit]

Hi(sorry for my english), could you update the script for that. The setting "|date" and the list under "<noinclude>[[Catégorie:Modèles utilisés sur la page d'accueil]]</noinclude>". Thank you. --SleaY (talk) 03:22, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I did some changes but, there still is a bug with the template {{W}}(We use it to make links) that is erased by the tool. --SleaY (talk) 17:22, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
@SleaY: what sort of issue are you having with the {{w}} template?
I'm talking about the tool Wikinews:Article principal. I think I fixed it [3]. I added also the setting "|date". Now I'm trying to do the same thing with "|theme". --SleaY (talk) 16:58, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Minor, obscure(?) technical question[edit]

I'm trying to understand js functions importScript and importStylesheet a bit better, and was wondering if you could shed light on them. My specific questions atm, fwiw:

  • Is it even possible to get the same effect by laboriously assembling a full url and passing it to mw.loader.load, or is that still going to do something subtly different?
  • If it's possible, is it worth the trouble for a function described as 'we'll be deprecating it as soon as we have an acceptable modern alternative' (but they still haven't had the guts to actually deprecate)?
  • Where would one look to find the source code defining importScript/importStylesheet? (Which seems like the most direct way of understanding just what they actually do.)

Any suggestions appreciated. --Pi zero (talk) 21:06, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
