SandboxLink[Hlela umthombo]


I received a request by email to enable SandboxLink on this wiki.

It's a very simple thing to do, but there is a semi-official policy that configuration changes of this kind are done after the editors of the wiki in question express their public support for it. So, for the sake of proper process I'd like to ask the editors on this wiki to reply here:

Do you want SandboxLink to be enabled here? This means that a link to the "Sandbox" will appear at the top of the page, between "Talk" and "Preferences" ("Ingxoxo yami" and "Amakhethelo ami"). Such a link already appears in the English Wikipedia, and you can see it there.

If you agree, please reply here and say that you support it.

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.

Thank you! --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 15:18, 27 uNtulikazi 2018 (UTC)

Shalom, Amir, and thank you for assisting this process. I'm a yearlong regular contributor to the ZU WP (though not a speaker of isiZulu), and I support the request for enabling SandboxLink. It's likely that new editors will emerge since Wikimania 2018 just wrapped up, and they'll be eager to create draft versions of new pages. -- 18:47, 28 uNtulikazi 2018 (UTC)

This would be a great feature, using Sandbox certainly makes things easier! Mtonihouse 08:07, 01 August 2018 (UTC)

New user group for editing sitewide CSS & JS[Hlela umthombo]

Enabling a helpful feature for Template editors[Hlela umthombo]

Editing of sitewide CSS/JS is only possible for interface administrators from now[Hlela umthombo]

(Please help translate to your language)

Hi all,

as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Interface administrators) group, and a few highly privileged global groups such as stewards, can edit CSS/JS pages that they do not own (that is, any page ending with .css or .js that is either in the MediaWiki: namespace or is another user's user subpage). This is done to improve the security of readers and editors of Wikimedia projects. More information is available at Creation of separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JS. If you encounter any unexpected problems, please contact me or file a bug.
