Punctuation in broken section anchors[edit]

Good work on Wikipedia:Database reports/Broken section anchors, I've been fixing some of them whilst the current crazy WP:REPLAG is stopping me doing other things. <g> One thing, it seems to be identifying working redirects as broken if the target section/anchor contains an apostrophe (and I think a hyphen also) - examples include If it ain't broke, don't fix it, T'Pau (Star Trek) and V'ger. I don't know if that's because you're being purist about them being urlencoded, but in practice they work, so should probably not go in the report? Cheers.

@Le Deluge: Thanks for the bug report. I have added an additional check for apostrophe (single quote). I did not find any hyphen mis-reports. The hyphens I did find had been fixed by someone else because the anchor had changed. --Bamyers99 (talk) 17:41, 11 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template Parameters tool[edit]

Hi. Could you please include enwiktionary at so it could be used? It'd be really convenient and I'd like to use it. Thanks, —Svārtava (t/u) • 10:37, 20 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Svartava: I will look into automating the monthly template parameter usage. It currently takes about 6 manual steps for each wiki. Also, this only reads parameters for templates that have TemplateData defined. It will not read Module:parameters. --Bamyers99 (talk) 22:57, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Svartava: enwiktionary has been added. --Bamyers99 (talk) 22:47, 1 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! I wanted to see the data for Wikt:T:cite-web [8] but that didn't show? —Svārtava (t/u) • 15:34, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Svartava: That template doesn't have TemplateData defined for it on its documentation page. If you edit the documentation page, there is a "Manage TemplateData" button in the upper left that displays a visual editor. --Bamyers99 (talk) 15:52, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Template data[edit]

When viewing a template's parameter data on, is there a way to view the specific values of the "Unique values" cell for a parameter, even when there are more than 50 unique values? TheGEICOgecko (talk) 05:27, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@TheGEICOgecko: Nope. Too much data to store. Millions of values. --Bamyers99 (talk) 16:37, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Would it be possible to see the 50 most used unique values, or even 50 random unique values? TheGEICOgecko (talk) 16:44, 4 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@TheGEICOgecko: It now shows the first 50 encountered values. --Bamyers99 (talk) 02:09, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks! :) TheGEICOgecko (talk) 03:45, 6 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

TemplateParms tool[edit]

Hi can you enable this for English Wikisource?

I'm trying to track down issues with that wikis version of center? For English Wikipedia - For English Wikisource -

obviously someone would have to add the TemplateData at wikisource though, hmm ... ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 10:01, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@ShakespeareFan00: enwikisource template parameters is available. --Bamyers99 (talk) 14:47, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Excellent, fixed a few more concerns almost straight away :)
I know it's probably a big ask, but could the tool be used to look at other namespaces ( such as Page:(ns 104) on Wikisource? (I think Wiktionary also has additional namespaces for Appendix: but not sure of the numbering, ). ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:44, 5 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
