The Travellers' pub—your watering hole on Wikitravel

The Travellers' pub is where Wikitravellers of all languages get to together to talk about Wikitravel, and where you can ask for help if you're confused, lost, afraid, tired or annoyed by Wikitravel. Please check the FAQ and Help page before asking a question, though, since that may save your time and others'.

If you have question about travel, not the website, try the Travellers' pubs in your language edition of Wikitravel.

If you are having a problem that you think has to do with the Mediawiki software, please post that on the technical requests page instead.

Please add new questions at the bottom of the page and sign your post by appending four tildes (~~~~) to it, but otherwise plunge forward!

It was blocked from the abuse log. Please explain why disallow caused the information to be blocked.

Hey everyone, just checked into this and our abuse filter needs some fine tuning. It blocks the string "Got nothing to write" as a spam protection move. 72.130.86.125, I believe you wrote the "They serve sandwiches though they are nothing to write home about" and that confused our filter. Tech will be back Monday morning and we can fix our bad bad filter! IBcaldera (talk) 16:43, 2 January 2015 (EST)
hello all, just wanted to share that our filter has been updated! "nothing to write home about" will no longer be marked as spam.

Bug on ko[edit]

Interwiki links Evidently, links to ar and wts do not work there. See, e.g. http://wikitravel.org/ko/%EB%AF%B8%EB%94%94%EC%96%B4%EC%9C%84%ED%82%A4:Recentchangestext . Koavf (talk) 03:08, 13 January 2015 (EST)

Wikitravel Page Buy 5000 youtube views[edit]

wrong telephone number listed in Atrium Hotel[edit]

Hello from Atrium Hotel, We have just noted that our hotel is listed in your website with the wrong telephone number. here is the listing: "Atrium Hotel, Agia Paraskevi, ☎ +30 24270 22258, [4]. Four-star hotel is situated on the lush island of Skiathos, in full harmony with the landscape." While we cannot edit the listing, we would kindly ask you to change our telephone number to the correct one: +30 24270 49345 or +30 24270 49376 thank you the atrium hotel 79.131.167.209 04:52, 30 January 2015 (EST)

Blocked[edit]

Hi,

On site for Ljubljana there was a part with taxis with information about company I am also a webmaster .Information is gone for saome time, and I did try to put the same info (phone number and link) again on the site. I try to do this twice in the row and got this notice:

The block was made by IBcaldera. The reason given is spammer.

   Start of block: 01:20, 20 February 2015
   Expiry of block: 00:20, 20 May 2015

You can contact IBcaldera or another administrator to discuss the block. Your current IP address is 89.212.211.75, and the block ID is #233306. Please include either or both of these in any queries. —The preceding comment was added by Boki (talkcontribs)

Hello, I had a look at the edits you are refering to. You tried to add an external link several times in the same article, and the links do not meet our guidelines. If you are planning to add valuable information to the articles and not external links, we can unblock you, but please study our guidelines first. When making edits log in with your username so we can better determine who made an edit. Any further questions please let us know. Adzas (talk) 16:47, 21 February 2015 (EST)

Suggestion for Search Function[edit]

I notice whenever I search for a phrase that doesn't have its own page, no results appear, even if that phrase exists within a page's content. For example, if I search for "little kinmen" I get no results, even though it exists on the page for Kinmen. This is quite frustrating if you want to look up info for something that doesn't have a page. --Flapingglass (talk) 11:54, 25 February 2015 (EST)

Hi, thanks for your comment. I have sent a message to corporate about this as well, so they are fully aware, but at the moment the tech department is working on some other big projects so for now the search function (which is namespace based) probably won´t change.
