Sometimes, it is hard to see important changes in a wikitext diff. This screenshot of a wikitext diff (click to enlarge) shows that the paragraphs have been rearranged, but it does not highlight the removal of a word or the addition of a new sentence.
If you enable the Beta Feature for "⧼visualeditor-preference-visualdiffpage-label⧽", you will have a new option. It will give you a new box at the top of every diff page. This box will let you choose either diff system on any edit.
Click the toggle button to switch between visual and wikitext diffs.
In the visual diff, additions, removals, new links, and formatting changes will be highlighted. Other changes, such as changing the size of an image, are described in notes on the side.
This screenshot shows the same edit as the wikitext diff. The visual diff highlights the removal of one word and the addition of a new sentence.
You can read and help translate the user guide, which has more information about how to use the visual editor.
The 2017 wikitext editor is available as a Beta Feature on desktop devices. It has the same toolbar as the visual editor and can use the citoid service and other modern tools. The team have been comparing the performance of different editing environments. They have studied how long it takes to open the page and start typing. The study uses data for more than one million edits during December and January. Some changes have been made to improve the speed of the 2017 wikitext editor and the visual editor. Recently, the 2017 wikitext editor opened fastest for most edits, and the 2010 WikiEditor was fastest for some edits. More information will be posted at mw:Contributors/Projects/Editing performance.
The visual diff tool was developed for the visual editor. It is now available to all users of the visual editor and the 2017 wikitext editor. When you review your changes, you can toggle between wikitext and visual diffs. You can also enable the new Beta Feature for "Visual diffs". The Beta Feature lets you use the visual diff tool to view other people's edits on page histories and Special:RecentChanges.

Hi everyone. The Readers web team has recently begun working on exposing issue templates on the mobile website. Currently, details about issues with page content are generally hidden on the mobile website. This leaves readers unaware of the reliability of the pages they are reading. The goal of this project is to improve awareness of particular issues within an article on the mobile web. We will do this by changing the visual styling of page issues.
The new treatment increases awareness of page issues among participants. This is true particularly when they are in a more evaluative/critical mode.
Page issues make sense to readers and they understand how they work
Readers care about page issues and consider them important
Readers had overwhelmingly positive sentiments towards Wikipedia associated with learning about page issues
Our next step would be to start implementing these changes. We wanted to reach out to you for any concerns, thoughts, and suggestions you might have before beginning development. Please visit the project page where we have more information and mockups of how this may look. Please leave feedback on the talk page.
A Wikimedia Portugal precisa do vosso apoio[editar]
A 15 de Julho de 2018, a Comissão de Afiliações da Wikimedia suspendeu alguns dos benefícios da Wikimedia Portugal em relação a programas da Wikimedia Foundation . Para que a Wikimedia Portugal possa retomar as suas actividades normais, foi requerido que demonstremos entre outras coisas que temos o apoio de pelo menos vinte contribuidores activos em projectos da Wikimedia e que sejam sócios da Wikimedia Portugal. Gostaria de pedir que caso sejam já sócios da Wikimedia Portugal ou pretendam tornar-se em breve e apoiar as actividades da associação em Portugal visitem a página wmpt:Utilizador:GoEThe/Página de apoio à Wikimedia Portugal e demonstrem o vosso apoio. Caso não sejam associados há também uma secção para demonstrarem o vosso apoio, caso assim o desejem. Se necessitarem de maior contexto do que se está a passar, terei muito gosto de o fazer. Obrigado desde já. Espero poder contar com o vosso apoio. GoEThe (discussão) 22h32min de 16 de julho de 2018 (UTC)Responder[responder]
New user group for editing sitewide CSS / JS[editar]
(Ajude a traduzir para a sua língua, por favor)
To improve the security of our readers and editors, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed. (These are pages like MediaWiki:Common.css and MediaWiki:Vector.js which contain code that is executed in the browsers of users of the site.)
A new user group, interface-admin, has been created.
Starting four weeks from now, only members of this group will be able 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).
You can learn more about the motivation behind the change here.
Please add users who need to edit CSS/JS to the new group (this can be done the same way new administrators are added, by stewards or local bureaucrats).
This is a dangerous permission; a malicious user or a hacker taking over the account of a careless interface-admin can abuse it in far worse ways than admin permissions could be abused. Please only assign it to users who need it, who are trusted by the community, and who follow common basic password and computer security practices (use strong passwords, do not reuse passwords, use two-factor authentication if possible, do not install software of questionable origin on your machine, use antivirus software if that's a standard thing in your environment).
Editing of sitewide CSS/JS is only possible for interface administrators from now[editar]
(Ajude a traduzir para a sua língua, por favor)
as announced previously, permission handling for CSS/JS pages has changed: only members of the interface-admin (Administradores da interface) 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.
The Wikimedia Foundation will be testing its secondary data centre. Isso garantirá que a Wikipédia e as outras wikis da Wikimedia possam estar online mesmo depois de um desastre. To make sure everything is working, the Wikimedia Technology department needs to do a planned test. This test will show if they can reliably switch from one data centre to the other. It requires many teams to prepare for the test and to be available to fix any unexpected problems.
They will switch all traffic to the secondary data center on Wednesday, 12 September 2018.
On Wednesday, 10 October 2018, they will switch back to the primary data center.
Unfortunately, because of some limitations in MediaWiki, all editing must stop when we switch. Pedimos desculpa por esta ruptura, e estamos a trabalhar para a minimizar no futuro.
Você poderá ler, mas não editar, todas as wikis por um curto período de tempo.
You will not be able to edit for up to an hour on Wednesday, 12 September and Wednesday, 10 October. The test will start at 14:00 UTC (15:00 BST, 16:00 CEST, 10:00 EDT, 07:00 PDT, 23:00 JST, and in New Zealand at 02:00 NZST on Thursday 13 September and Thursday 11 October).
Se tentar editar ou guardar durante estes períodos, verá uma mensagem de erro. Esperamos que nenhuma edição se perca durante estes minutos, mas não o podemos garantir. Se vir uma mensagem de erro, por favor aguarde até que tudo volte ao normal. Então deverá poder guardar a sua edição. Mas recomendamos que primeiro faça uma cópia das suas alterações, por precaução.
Os trabalhos em segundo plano terão a performance reduzida e alguns podem parar. As ligações em vermelho poderão não ser actualizadas tão rápido como o normal. Se criar um artigo que já estiver ligado em outro lugar, o link permanecerá vermelho mais tempo do que o habitual. Alguns scripts de longa-execução terão de ser parados.
There will be code freezes for the weeks of 10 September 2018 and 8 October 2018. Non-essential code deployments will not happen.
A equipa de edição começou um estudo de design de edição visual no site móvel. Os novos editores têm problemas em realizar tarefas básicas num smartphone, como acrescentar ligações em artigos da Wikipedia. Você pode ler o relatório.
Change coming to how certain templates will appear on the mobile web[editar]
Change coming to how certain templates will appear on the mobile web
Ajude a traduzir para a sua língua, por favor
In a few weeks the Readers web team will be changing how some templates look on the mobile web site. We will make these templates more noticeable when viewing the article. We ask for your help in updating any templates that don't look correct.
What kind of templates? Specifically templates that notify readers and contributors about issues with the content of an article – the text and information in the article. Examples like Template:Unreferenced or Template:More citations needed. Right now these notifications are hidden behind a link under the title of an article. We will format templates like these (mostly those that use Template:Ambox or message box templates in general) to show a short summary under the page title. You can tap on the "Learn more" link to get more information.
The Community Wishlist Survey. Ajude a traduzir para a sua língua, por favor.
The Community Wishlist Survey is the process when the Wikimedia communities decide what the Wikimedia Foundation Community Tech should work on over the next year.
The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors. The communities have now posted a long list of technical proposals. You can vote on the proposals from now until 30 November. You can read more on the wishlist survey page.
These new requirements will apply to new accounts and privileged accounts. New accounts will be required to create a password with a minimum length of 8 characters. Privileged accounts will be prompted to update their password to one that is at least 10 characters in length.
These changes are planned to be in effect on December 13th. If you think your work or tools will be affected by this change, please let us know on the talk page.
Love is an important subject for humanity and it is expressed in different cultures and regions in different ways across the world through different gestures, ceremonies, festivals and to document expression of this rich and beautiful emotion, we need your help so we can share and spread the depth of cultures that each region has, the best of how people of that region, celebrate love.
Wiki Loves Love (WLL) is an international photography competition of Wikimedia Commons with the subject love testimonials happening in the month of February.
The primary goal of the competition is to document love testimonials through human cultural diversity such as monuments, ceremonies, snapshot of tender gesture, and miscellaneous objects used as symbol of love; to illustrate articles in the worldwide free encyclopedia Wikipedia, and other Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) projects.
The theme of 2019 iteration is Celebrations, Festivals, Ceremonies and rituals of love.
