guided tours question

Hey Jake! I have a GuidedTours technical question for you. Do you know of anything you can use in place of gt.isPostEdit to check whether someone just pressed the Save button whether or not they actually made any changes to create a new revision?--Sage Ross (WMF) (talk) 19:23, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Pinging Superm401 (talk · contribs), as Sage, I am not sure :). Sage Ross (WMF) (talk · contribs), Matt Flaschen, was the real brains behind TWA's code so if anyone knows it will be him. Ocaasi t | c 20:33, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I'm the one that suggested Sage talk to you. I couldn't think of a way; I just thought it might have come up in TWA. Superm401 - Talk 20:44, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Ah, I see :/

Sage, what we did to avoid the no-edit Save was to insert the forced go-back message and reload the page's editing function.

// Fail gracefully post-save but not postedit
var postEditButtons = [];
if ( mw.config.get( 'wgAction' ) === 'view' && !gt.isPostEdit() ) {
        postEditButtons.push( {
                name: 'Click here to go back and make an edit',
                onclick: function() {
                        window.location.href = new mw.Uri().extend( { action: 'edit' } ).toString();
        } );

Not sure if that's useful to you, or if you have situations where you want them to save null edits. Cheers, Ocaasi t | c 21:03, 17 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I already stole that feature, but was hoping for a little more flexibility. For the BeBold tour, the users edit and interact with a single page over the course of multiple edits, then follow links they created. If they follow the directions precisely, they will get through it, but if they improvise (such as, say, creating the correct link as well as another link), then they may end up needing to be redirected back to an edit page to try again but not actually needing to make an edit in order to follow the directions. Probably its an edge case, but I was hoping to find a way to account for it via tour logic (instead of more tedious instructional text).--Sage Ross (WMF) (talk) 17:25, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

WVS Montana

The WVS Montana link is a private Google Doc (FYI) czar  04:00, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

fixed the doc link Yes check.svg Done
(and the Rutgers link doesn't have contact info or a timeframe, and the Riverside app was due on the 10th, though it was just posted—might be worth clarifying on the page) czar  04:02, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
great catch! working on it Czar (talk · contribs) Ocaasi t | c 17:38, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
