Welcome to the Technical Assistance reading room. Get assistance on questions related to MediaWiki markup, CSS, JavaScript, and such as they relate to Wikibooks. This is not a general-purpose technical support room.

To submit a bug notice or feature request for the MediaWiki software, visit Phabricator.

There are also two IRC channels for technical help: #mediawiki for issues about the software, and #wikimedia-tech for WMF server or configuration issues.

Please review my editsEdit

Please review my edits in one run. They are all about the technical detail of having "nbsp" displayed in the read view in cases in which i suppose they should not be displayed. I included some cases of computer programming examples where nbsp was used in text environments where the wiki nbsp syntax does not work. Hope my edits were all correct. In some cases the nbsp may be completely deleted. --Himbeerbläuling (discusscontribs) 06:48, 24 October 2022 (UTC)

Non breaking hyphenEdit

I attempted to use the non-breaking hyphen template in the right column at Oberon/System_Variants#OberonExt. Not displayed as hyphen. Can that be corrected? Thx, ... PeterEasthope (discusscontribs) 19:57, 8 November 2022 (UTC)

Peter, you initially included w: at the beginning, which creates a link to the English-language Wikipedia. We cannot transclude templates from other projects here, so I've just copied and pasted a local version at Template:non-breaking hyphen. Please check the page now and tell me if it meets your needs. —Justin (koavf)TCM 21:29, 8 November 2022 (UTC)
