Bulk import test -- notjusttired (talk) 10:08, September 3, 2019 (EDT)[edit source | reply | new]

User:Kmdenmark Can you copy and paste the text below into a file named Import1.xml on your computer, and see if Special:Import works with it? It should create 2 system messages. If this works, it would make it much easier to add a large number of new messages from elsewhere. As usual, don't include the "pre" bits or blank lines. notjusttired (talk) 10:08, September 3, 2019 (EDT)

Note that copy-and-paste from MEpedia to a word processing program can corrupt some foreign characters. This obviously isn’t an issue here, but it’s just good to be aware in general... Hope this helps.

Pyrrhus and notjusttired, Tried it. This time I got this message: File:Screen shot 2019-09-04 at 1.14.39 PM.png Kmdenmark (talk) 14:16, September 4, 2019 (EDT)
User:Kmdenmark The error is saying that it can't find the "mediawiki" line, which is actually the first line. Can you try again, but check there are no lines at the start of end containing "pre". To make sure the file is definitely "plain text" and ends in ".xml" it might be easier create a file using Special:Export, then open the file and delete everything, and copy the new content over. The file name does not matter as long as it ends ".xml" (endings like .xml.txt will probably not work). notjusttired (talk) 14:41, September 4, 2019 (EDT)
User:Notjusttired It might be easier to just share the file through Slack?
Pyrrhus (talk) 15:55, September 4, 2019 (EDT)
Done, it's on Slack now User:Notjusttired
OK, definitely will give it a try. Give me a little time. I need to use a different computer to go on Slack. (My very old Mac laptop doesn't support the operating system for Slack.) Kmdenmark (talk) 12:33, September 5, 2019 (EDT)
I believe the web version should work - try this link notjusttired (talk) 17:40, September 5, 2019 (EDT)
I tried link; still doesn't work. Message says to upgrade operating system. I'll try to get to it this evening, tomorrow at the latest. Kmdenmark (talk) 15:40, September 6, 2019 (EDT)
Can you try this again User:Kmdenmark - I sent you the file including the ".xml" ending via Slack. Alternatively you could create a file from Special:Export containing maybe just MediaWiki:Lang, then download it and edit it to copy this over the top. Hope that is clear enough notjusttired (talk) 19:29, September 16, 2019 (EDT)
User:Kmdenmark is worked! Thanks!!!! This will be so much easier than doing a page at once Njt (talk) 22:12, September 20, 2019 (EDT)
Njt You're very welcome! Kmdenmark (talk) 11:12, September 21, 2019 (EDT)
