UCP updates

You've been active within the last couple weeks so I hope that means you're still open to helping with templates? The UCP update has caused some issues with different templates that I'm unqualified to fix; I can mimic stuff if it works in at least one location, but these issues are currently universal so I have nothing to mimic from. To use the Sharingan article as an example:

  • Anime and manga debuts are currently displaying as the name of the corresponding article, when ideally the corresponding article's media number would be displayed instead. So instead of "You Failed! Kakashi's Final Decision", it should be "Naruto episode 5". It seems this was previously accomplished with DisplayType=Number in Template:Infobox/Debut, but now that option isn't working.
  • Known wielders lack media tags, as in "anime only" and the like. These media tags are handled correctly for some infoboxes (as in Members of Team Kakashi or Family of Hinata), but that's because they're setup differently than most other templates.
  • Jutsu are displaying as unformatted links.
    • In character articles, jutsu are displaying as links, but again lack the desired media tags.

There are likely additional issues in different areas of the wiki, but I haven't noticed them yet and (hopefully) could fix them if/when I do. But in the meantime, if you know how to fix any of the above issues, I'd be very grateful. ~SnapperTo 19:12, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

  • Debuts previously displayed as numbers in all situations, not only when articles of no such value existed. You can see how things used to look in Shadow Clone Technique, where there are numbers in the manga debut row. Outside of jutsu articles, such as Naruto Uzumaki, it's the name of the associated article that's displayed instead. Naruto and shadow clones both debut in episode/chapter #1, so ideally the debut row should appear the same in both articles. Module:HF/MediaNav, which is used in jutsu infoboxes, appears set up in superficially the same way as Template:MediaNav, so I'm unsure why they're behaving differently. Solved by Ursuul.
  • Sorry, I was experimenting with some of the infoboxes earlier and didn't update my previous message. The media tag issue has now been partially solved insofar as all links work and media superscripts display in some cases. Ominbender has drawn attention to where this is not universal here. Very likely the workaround I added to the infoboxes is flawed, in which case it may be better to work off whatever the infobozes were previously using than what I've implemented, though I wouldn't know where to start with that. ~SnapperTo 05:27, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

RE: UCP Updates

Not all removed, there's a great deal of the software differences listed here. As for $.showCustomModal in particular, you can try this Dev Library for creating modals if you'd like an alternative. Basic functionality works, & full support will be coming to UCP soon.
-Ursuul (talk) 10:54, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

The script was not compatible with UCP/was not loading prior to the updates, which were recommended by FR Naruto. After them I have the form loading for me (1 minute ago screenshot), although I just now updated the JS load order again to see if that fixes the issue for you. Let me know if that resolves it, & if not, look around for the "Switch to the advanced form" button at the top right.
-Ursuul (talk) 00:32, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
Ahhh I see the problem, I'll make inquiries to see what's going on/hopefully get this resolved soon.

Hey, is the upload form working for you now? Apparently it is working for some uploads in S:RecentChanges.
-Ursuul (talk) 18:21, 1 December 2020 (UTC)


Heyo!! I've been looking at your suggestion and I seem to be using special upload as you said, however I don't really know where my information ends up although I add it while uploading it. Is there any different

way to do it? Thanks!

Wood Release Link not showing on Asura's Article

Hey there, Ultimate, I'm sending you this because on the page for Asura Otsutsuki, under the subsection for "Kekkei Genkai," it shows the Wood Release icon, however the link for Wood Release's page isn't showing up anywhere on the page. Instead, there is only a blank space where the text should be. Yakushimi (talk)

Episode form dates

In form and template edits done lately, was something done to episode forms? Now, whenever dates are edited, their format is being changed from (using today's date as an example) "November 29, 2020" to "2020/11/29". I don't think that's supposed to happen. I have yet to see if this format change is also being applied to other forms and templates which involve date inputs. I manually changed today's episode debut date format for the moment, but that's not a viable strategy going forward. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 16:56, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Also, something appears to be wrong with Teams. From what I can tell, if a team article has a macroned letter in its title, like Team Fū, Ino–Shika–Chō (15th), Daimyō Protection Squad, Prajñā Group, members don't appear listed, only leaders. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 17:32, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
Date will remain so in source but will display correctly.
Team is fixed. ~UltimateSupreme 17:48, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
Something else. I just moved an image, but the option to automatically update the image name in articles wasn't available. I understand that was an imported script. Did UCP kill that particular script, or does it have to be imported some different way? I asked Ursuul something similar about a batchdelete script I had imported that no longer works. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:13, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
No idea ~UltimateSupreme 18:25, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Whatever change you made to make episodes show dates in the proper format, it looks like they'll also have to happen in volume articles. I don't know if there are other types of forms or infoboxes that need this sort of correcting. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 04:51, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

Image Uploads

Hey! Hope you're doing well. Just wanted to get up to speed regarding images. So is the only way to upload images now through the basic form? If so then is the advanced form bugged/obsolete? Any information for would be really helpful for me down the line. Thanks! Ventillate (talk) 17:03, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Tabbed images in Jutsu

I haven't checked this extensively, but I'm seeing some weird formatting in jutsu infoboxes. In the ones with multiple images, there's this empty space to the left of the image subtitles. For example, Amenotejikara. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 06:15, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

RE: Top Nav

Yes, there are limits. This is partly why we strongly recommend that wikis take down sections like your "wiki activity" section — the vast majority of clicks to the header are not editors, but the way the TopNav is currently set up leaves them with only a single dropdown for a 7,000 page wiki. Further, the editor-centric dropdowns will be confusing to readers & give them a bad experience. It's strongly suggested that the TopNav focus almost exclusively on reader content, with at most one editor-centric dropdown.

Userpage Creation.

Recently, I have made a few attempts at creating an actual userpage (not to be confused with a user talk page, I already have that). For some strange reason, I was not permitted by the site to do this. It brought up the rule of not allowing userpage creation for those who have never made contributions to the wiki and said that I could ignore this if I believed that I had good reason to. As someone who has already contributed eleven times to the wiki, me creating a userpage would not be an instance of ignoring this rule, but an act of behaving consistently with it. SovietSnail (talk) 06:01, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

  • The prior statement is no longer relevant as I now have a user page.

Student and Teacher: Rasengan

OmegaRasengan recently made an edit to that jutsu article, which exposed an issue. It appears that the annotations we use for collaboration jutsu are not playing nice with the media cleaner. In the example, everyone other than Boruto and Konohamaru should have the game annotation show up in the user section. And as that's not working right, the jutsu is showing up incorrectly in all user infoboxes: it's showing up for the users who are tagged as game only, and without the anime only tag for Boruto and Konohamaru. Curiously, the anime only tag does show up in Team 7's infobox under the team jutsu section. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:17, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Action Requests

Just a quick question regarding the Is it still being monitored on an active basis? Just would like to know in regards to blocking-related requests for Discussion users. Sorry for the inconvenience. Ninja Of War (talk) 13:55, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Broken SMW output

Hi. The Plot of Naruto page output is broken, as can be seen in the first heading. Subsequent headings are not line-broken correctly, meaning the TOC box is devoid of proper headers etc. --Sajuuk 14:39, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Seems to have been fixed. --~UltimateSupreme 21:52, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
How strange, I don't think anyone did anything to resolve that, must've been Fandom tinkering I guess. At least its fixed now! --Sajuuk 23:12, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
If you check the article's history, you'll see that in updating the death tables, the first recent edit by VioLunaria was made with the Visual Editor, and messed up page code. ShinjiHirako66 also made a couple messes. I wish we had a wiki side option to disable Visual Editor for everyone regardless of user settings.

On This Day in main page

For a couple weeks now, I began to notice that the On This Day block in the main page doesn't appear to be updating right. The last few episode articles have not shown up in it after being created. When it's still the same day, I've null-edited and purged both the episode articles and the main page, and the episode articles still won't show up. I think this is weird because I don't recall this happening when the UCP update happened, so this must be a more recent thing. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 22:00, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

That template was only configured for years up through 2020. Recent episodes have been airing in 2021. Oops. I've added years up through 2025. (If anyone knows of a future-proof way of setting it up, please do.) ~SnapperTo 01:39, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Tool infoboxes

The tool infoboxes have to be updated for Boruto anime debuts. There's only a Shippuden checkbox to change the debut link. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 18:59, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Infoboxes were already updated. It was Form:Tools that was out of date. ~SnapperTo 19:12, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

DPL query

Hi. What is your experience with DPL? Got an issue and can't find anyone that might be able to help. --Sajuuk 19:19, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

Don't worry about this: got some help with the issue from another Fandom user. :) --Sajuuk 12:21, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

RE: Unlock page

We cannot, it is a blacklisted system message now. If you'd like me to update it I'd be happy to do so for you, just send along the replacement text.
