Oh gawd, that image addition (one of the Day 3 options) was a lot of info, but now I’ve stepped through it! I’m leaving a question here though, since you offered. :) I turned it into a gallery, because otherwise I couldn’t get both the caption and alt text to display! I had it written out like this: [[File:NAME_OF_FILE|thumb|left|caption|alt=“alt text”]] But only the alt text displayed, as if it were the caption. Do you know what I was doing wrong?

Hi, Joanna! So, in my experience of using the alt= attribute with images, the alt text won't visibly display (as hover text or anything else), but it will still be there. So if only the caption is displaying, but you've added alt text as well, that's okay! They're both there. Does that answer your question?
(Also, a handy wiki tip: you can type ~~~~ after Talk page messages to add a signature and a date stamp onto your message automatically! --enchantedsleeper (talk) 15:02, 17 February 2022 (UTC)
oops, first of all I’d been signing my additions to Talk pages with ~~~~ but I forgot to do it here! Sorry, I didn’t mean to be mysterious. :-P I was actually having the opposite problem, the alt text was displaying as if it were the caption (when yes, I expect it not to visibly display because I’m not using a screen reader), but the caption was not displaying at all. Thanks for working through this with me!Joanna R (talk) 21:36, 17 February 2022 (UTC)

Page permissions

I have found a friend who wants to add stuff on Bruno Madrigal/Mirabel Madrigal and she says, "It tells me I don't have permission to edit it?" What is the problem there and how do I fix it? --Azdaema (talk) 05:55, 26 August 2022 (UTC)

Azdaema is your friend logged into her account on the site? Maybe it is disconnected, because the page can be edited without any problems, I just tested --Ellakbhesse (talk) 06:57, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
Is the requirement to be logged in equally consistent across the site? --Azdaema (talk) 15:36, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
you can only edit or interact on the site if you are logged in. It could have been that something external disconnected her account from the site. check this --Ellakbhesse (talk) 15:44, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
Ok, got it. I'm just trying to get some of my shipmates to pitch in with the page too, so even simple barriers to entry are something we're talking about. --Azdaema (talk) 16:38, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
Azdaema this is not a barrier, if your friend has an account on the site she can edit and contribute to Fanlore. Does she have an account? Has she ever done some simple editing and then moved on to more complex edits? It's simple, on every wiki site to edit it is necessary to have an account, impossible to do otherwise --Ellakbhesse (talk) 16:43, 26 August 2022 (UTC)
Hi, Azdaema - it's great to hear that you're encouraging your friends to edit Fanlore! Did logging in/setting up an account solve their issue? You do have to be logged in to edit Fanlore, but if you have an account that you can log into that should be the only thing you need to set up. If your friend is still having trouble, however, they can also get in touch with us directly (the best subject dropdown to select is "Technical Support", but all of them will reach us) and we can help them out that way. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 15:49, 27 August 2022 (UTC)

Page Edit Permissions

I'm being blocked by the site from editing my user pages, it says I can't because only administrators, gardeners and editors have that right. But hey it's my user page, I'm editor on the site, what's going on? Is it some new bug? -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 22:27, 3 November 2022 (UTC)

Hey Ellakbhesse, so sorry about this, it is a known bug that has cropped up for several people. We haven't got to the bottom of it yet, but it seems that it affects people specifically editing their Talk page in Source Edit mode, as opposed to using the Visual Editor. (Assuming you're on mobile) if you select the pencil icon at the top of the page while you are editing (so select it once to edit, and then a second time) it should give you a choice between "Visual editing" and "Source editing", and if you select Visual editing it should allow you to edit the page. This may serve as a workaround for now?
I hope it helps, and we will try to fix this bug as soon as possible. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 00:56, 4 November 2022 (UTC)

Will I have to edit my page in that visual version? I'm not a big fan due to my vision problems but I'll do it for now until the bug is fixed, thanks for the reply -- Ellakbhesse (talk) 01:08, 4 November 2022 (UTC)

Sorry for the trouble, Ellakbhesse! This seems be the only workaround until we have the bug fixed, we are working on getting it sorted as soon as we can. ❤ --enchantedsleeper (talk) 21:47, 13 November 2022 (UTC)

These pages needs to be deleted. They are obvious off-topic (self promo) pages, and two of them are written in Spanish. I couldn't find a deletion tag, so I come to alert you! --WingedWarrior (talk) --WingedWarrior (talk) 09:36, 15 November 2022 (UTC)
