Headers broken[edit]

See (e.g.) Category:Barack Obama with the following displayed to the user: "action=do&label=see older articles&verb:button-local-field-verb&page:button-local-field-page&offset:button-local-field-offset&cols=&rows=&viewxcols=&rows=&Category:Barack Obamaxcols=&rows=&10x". —Justin (koavf)TCM 23:18, 13 August 2018 (UTC)

@Koavf: That code is supposed to be hidden until and unless the dialog gadget runs, and at the time it's unhidden that gibberish should already have been replaced by a button. When I look at thost pages, sometimes the gibberish appears briefly before being replaced by the button, which is disturbing since it should be invisible until after being replaced, suggesting that the hiding facility has failed. If for you both the hiding and the gadget are missing-without-leave, you would permanently see the gibberish. Do you perhaps either have javascript turned off, or have some javascript running that is broken is thereby prevents other javascript (such as the gadget) from running? --Pi zero (talk) 01:24, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
@Pi zero: Scripts were turned off until not long ago but definitely before I viewed that category. Hm. Now it does the "briefly appear and then fade away" trick. —Justin (koavf)TCM 01:35, 14 August 2018 (UTC)


Spam is taking away time and effort every day. However the deletions of it are not marked with tags. I.e. at the deletion log there is a "tag filter" box which does not do anything. Is it possible to associate a tag with each deletion reason (A1, A2,etc) so that I can view the deletion log for each reason separately? Gryllida (chat) 05:35, 1 September 2018 (UTC)
