Hi Jörn. Your altLabels script is a very handy tiny little tool. Thank you very much for providing it. However, it does incorrectly replace several characters by their HTML entities, e.g. "&" to "&" (e.g. here). Would be nice if that could be fixed. --YMS (talk) 11:04, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

sorry for the late reply, this seems to have been a bug of an implicit html escaping by jquery (which was nice). Version 1.0.0 now also does an unescaping before submitting via json through the api. Thanks for reporting Joern (talk) 17:09, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

Altlabel seems to be broken...Edit

Hi, I'm a big user of your altlabel tool, especially for human names...

It worked fine, until a few days ago... could you please check what happened, or is it a compatibilité problem with another tool ?

Thank you very much. --Hsarrazin (talk) 18:52, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

should be fixed... the use of $.toJSON was deprecated and dropped recently, switched to JSON.stringify Joern (talk) 16:13, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
down again… new update of GUI, new disparition of your script… sorry for annoying you :(

should be fixed again, the new gui uses a new structure for the input box, so just had to upgrade the query pattern... Joern (talk) 15:57, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
one more thing, not sure if you know this page: it lists the top items without a label in the given language... quite handy ;)

AltLabels not workingEdit

AltLabels hasn't been working with the new UI update a while ago, see here. Thanks, --AmaryllisGardener talk 00:53, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

sorry for the slow reply. It's fixed for now and i also mirrored it over on so people can more easily report bugs and make pull requests. Joern (talk) 11:17, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Altlabel not working when there is English fallbackEdit


I'm a very thorough user of your handy tool Altlabel, and my main language is French.

Unfortunately, since fallback labels have been introduced (some weeks ago), the tool does not work when there is English fallback, which means that for all enwiki articles, I need to add the label manually in french :( —— that is approx. half the Q5 items I work on.

Could you please modify it, so that it works again from English, please ?

Thanks a lot , --Hsarrazin (talk) 12:06, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Hello, still not working when there is fallback on english. Could you please modify so that it ignores fallback ? --Hsarrazin (talk) 07:48, 25 May 2017 (UTC)
sorry, very little time at the moment... was just a minor part of the selector that didn't trigger in case of fallback labels. Should be fixed now. Code contributions in form of pull requests at always welcome.

Suggestion of new featureEdit

Hi, I'm wondering if it's possible to add new label for my language base on title of wikipedia article in the same language, I guess it would be helpful feature. --Ziad (talk) 07:53, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
