Requests for Admin assistance[edit]

In the previous discussions in 2019 it was understood that the exclusion of subpages must be by MfD. I believe that this section "Requests for Admin assistance " should be removed from this talk page.Guilherme Burn (talk) 12:02, 9 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Do you have a link to that consensus? My view is that it's legitimate to request assistance for technical changes, such as when replacing Portal:Foo/Articles/1 to /99 by a template in Portal:Foo which produces similar excerpts, but not as part of demolishing a portal (for example, after quietly replacing its main page by a redirect to a broader portal).

I don't have the link, I can search for discussions, but this is unnecessary. @Certes: you are a witness, like me, of the thousands of excluded subpages that were restored. I think it is better not to repeat the same mistake again, or we exclude via MfD or leave them in limbo for a while.(Or we propose a new criterion for speed deletions)Guilherme Burn (talk) 14:01, 9 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bug collection[edit]

This section is only for tracking bugs and feature requests, in the MediaWiki software itself, which affect portals. For general technical help with portals or portal-related templates, create a new section on this talk page.

 Do not report new bugs or feature requests in this section – only list them here after a Phabricator task has been created.
  • T196722: Gallery slideshow controls take up more than one line on narrow displays
  • T196723: Gallery slideshow flickers when changing images
  • T194887: Mode slideshow of gallery tag is not working in phone screens
  • T199126: Scribunto/Lua should have a built-in method for retrieving category members

Portals with many images[edit]

Some portals may time out due to showing too many images. One fix is to combine all images from core articles with a rotating display from one randomly selected non-core article, by moving non-core articles into {{Random item}} so only one is used. For example, Portal:Pakistan used to time out showing images from several provinces and cities. This change keeps images from Pakistan-wide articles but limits local coverage to one article at a time. Certes (talk) 17:58, 7 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

List of portal pages[edit]

I have updated the list of all portal pages in Wikipedia:WikiProject Portal/List of all portals, which was outdated by nearly 4 years. Currently the total number of Portal pages is at 105,352, down from 146,596 in April 2018. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 11:16, 17 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
