==Renaming a file name and caption==
 
I have uploaded a file, and accidentally it had the wrong name and caption (should be Underground, instead of Underwater). I have been going crazing trying to find out how it's possible to rename the name and the caption. I follow help link to help link and so far nothing.
 
After reading the help info, what is was able to find out is that only admin, file movers, and a few other groups can do it.
 
Since I don't have that op right, I wasn't able to find out: who should I contact in order to request that file and caption rename.
 
Does anyone how to help me? And I think it would be helpful if that info is not more clear on help documentation.
 
  
:Thank you for your post. I am an admin here and I would gladly help you. Please let me know how you would like to name the file and I will do it for you. Is that a file you are referring to [http://wikitravel.org/shared/File:Princesa_Underwater_River.jpg]? The best way to ask for help on Wikitravel is simply to leave a message on the Travellers' Pub, just as you did. I've been checking Pub regularly and I'm doing my best to solve all the problems. You can also contact me on my [[Shared: User_talk:IBAlex| User Page]]. Thanks! [[User:IBAlex|IBAlex]] 12:35, 11 December 2012 (EST)

Hi! I've added a listing and hit save, I see it listed on the page, but when I go back the next day, it's gone. It shows in my user contribution, it shows in the revision history, but after adding when I reload the page, it does not show as a listing any longer. I've tried to add the listing several times now and it's still not showing on the page after refreshing. I'm concerned that I'm either doing something wrong or will be touting. Thanks for any help in resolving this!

== User name + password not accepted, OpenID disabled - how to get my user back? ==
 +
 
 +
Dear all, I did not log in for quite a while but edited as anonymous. Mea culpa. Now, when I wanted to log in again. I used to do that via OpenID, but that function seems to be disabled?! When I try to log in via user name + password, which I saved 7 years ago in KeePass so they shall be correct, these credentials are not accepted. I tried to let me send a new password, but that does not work (error message: There is no email address recorded for user "Schoschi"). I do would like to continue to use ''my user'' and not create a new user "schoschi2" or the like. How can I solve that problem? Thank you, http://wikitravel.org/de/Benutzer:Schoschi --[[Special:Contributions/85.212.79.184|85.212.79.184]] 07:43, 2 April 2015 (EDT)

:Hi, did you try to just create user "schoschi" again? I looked through all the logs and this name does not appear anywhere, so maybe it has been deleted by the system as it was not used for so long.

:: I tried to log-in as well as to get a new password as well as to create a user with my old name.

== Editing Zipolite ==
 +
 
 +
Hello,
 +
 
 +
I have been adding to the "Zipolite" page for several days now. I tried to post a picture of the sunset in the SEE section. Im not an expert with codes, so I still havent been able to add the picture properly. This is kind of annoying, but not the big issue.
 +
 
 +
The problem is that when Zipolite page is opened, the formatting has been changed. The "Sleep" and "Eat" sections have been combined with each other, and the page looks awful.
 +
 
 +
I then go back to the edit screen to try and fix the mess, and the formatting on the editing screen is correct, it should look perfect when opened up.
 +
 
 +
Any ideas...am I going to have to copy the whole page, then start over and paste it all together to make the page look correct again?
 +
 
 +
Help please!!!

== Cleveland Ohio Climate ==
 +
 
 +
I don't know why, but the Climate by Month information for Cleveland Ohio is very wrong for the summer months. It lists the Daily highs for July as 113 degrees Farenheit. That's absurd. It's not Palm Springs it's Cleveland.... I would say May-August are all very wrong and off by 20-30 degrees.
 +
 
 +
I'm not sure what weather source is typically used by WikiTravel. But Intellicast backs up my assertions that the values for Cleveland are our of whack.
 +
 
 +
I wanted to bring this to someone's attention. Hopefully someone who is more aware of the editing policies can eventually apply an update.

The reason for my blocking would be "link spamming", but the only thing I did was inserting in the apposite section for "dove alloggiare", that would be "where to sleep", the names and links to the hotels I manage, since I work for many accomodation facilities. I would say that a link to the hotel main page is not spamming, but information, which, I recon, is the whole purpose of this wiki. If I am doing something wrong, at least I would like to know.

There is a section in this Travel Guide to Sarasota, named “Stay Safe,” to which I had an extremely negative reaction.  My wife and I have tutored at Emma E. Booker Elementary in Newtown for many years, and I presently have two “Little Brothers” who live in Newtown.  To hear this neighborhood described as “notorious for drug related crime” to me is outrageously racist.  None of the many men and women whom I have come to know has anything to do with drug related crime, and I’m sure this is true of the vast majority of Newtown residents. To label this neighborhood “notorious” is beyond the pale, and betrays a profound ignorance of the real Sarasota. <small>—The [[Project:Using_talk_pages#Talk_page_formatting|preceding]] comment was added by [[User:71.99.139.42|71.99.139.42]] ([[User_talk:71.99.139.42|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/71.99.139.42|contribs]]) </small>

We hired small motorbike in Vang Vieng, Laos from MR TEEP, for 40,000 Kip for the day. We rode to Kaeng Nyui waterfalls, which were 6 Km from town down a bumpy dirt road. We parked the bike next to the ticket kiosk, and when we returned about 30 minutes later, the woman in the kiosk pointed out that our front tyre was flat. She did not speak English, but by gestures offered to phone Mr Teep, which we were grateful for, as our mobiles did not work in Laos. Having spoken to MR TEEP she passed her phone to me, and he explained that he would contact the repair man, who would bring a replacement innertube out and that I would have to pay 50,000 Kip for it. I told him that I had examined the tyre and could see nothing wrong with it and it hopefully only needed pumping up. To which he said that if that was the case, then I would have to pay 2000 or 3000 Kip.
+
:http://wikitravel.org/en/Ottawa looks fine to me... [[User:IBobi|IBobi]] [[User talk:IBobi|talk]] [[Special:EmailUser/IBobi|email]]
The repair man arrived a few minutes later with a sack with a pump and two different size inner tubes and a few tyre levers. He went to speak to the kiosk woman and so I undid his sack and took out the pump. He came across and protested and showed me the new inner tube. I asked how much, and he wrote 50,000 on his hand. I said "No" and attached the pump and pumped up the tyre. I disconnected the pump and listened for air coming out. It seemed OK. So I decided to ride back to the town and check the tyre again then, knowing that I would probably be able to get it pumped up there. I offered the repairman 3000, but he wanted 5000, which I paid him.
+
When we got back to town the tyre was OK, and we realised that the woman at the kiosk must have let the tyre down, so that the repairman could swap a perfectly OK tube for an extortionate charge!!! We used the bike for rest of the day, with no problems.
+
Being in the middle of nowhere without a pump and not speaking the language, most people may well have paid up and been non-the-wiser.
+
I also feel sure that MR TEEP must have been in on it! Otherwise he would have been  suspicious of the number of flat tyres being reported to him by the kiosk woman!!
+
Don't hire from MR TEEP and more importantly do not park your bike near the ticket kiosk. Other people had taken their motorbikes nearer to the falls, where there is more parking.

Since the software upgrade on the English WT a month ago, sometimes when I do an edit, click "Show changes", write an edit summary, and try to save it, a pop-up asks me to write another, separate edit summary.

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!

Hi! I've added a listing and hit save, I see it listed on the page, but when I go back the next day, it's gone. It shows in my user contribution, it shows in the revision history, but after adding when I reload the page, it does not show as a listing any longer. I've tried to add the listing several times now and it's still not showing on the page after refreshing. I'm concerned that I'm either doing something wrong or will be touting. Thanks for any help in resolving this!

Please provide a link Where are you editing exactly? Which page? I'd be happy to help but I need something more precise, please. Koavf (talk) 23:40, 29 May 2015 (EDT)

User name + password not accepted, OpenID disabled - how to get my user back?[edit]

Dear all, I did not log in for quite a while but edited as anonymous. Mea culpa. Now, when I wanted to log in again. I used to do that via OpenID, but that function seems to be disabled?! When I try to log in via user name + password, which I saved 7 years ago in KeePass so they shall be correct, these credentials are not accepted. I tried to let me send a new password, but that does not work (error message: There is no email address recorded for user "Schoschi"). I do would like to continue to use my user and not create a new user "schoschi2" or the like. How can I solve that problem? Thank you, http://wikitravel.org/de/Benutzer:Schoschi --85.212.79.184 07:43, 2 April 2015 (EDT)

Hi, did you try to just create user "schoschi" again? I looked through all the logs and this name does not appear anywhere, so maybe it has been deleted by the system as it was not used for so long. Give it a try and let us know. Thanks! Adzas (talk) 10:05, 6 April 2015 (EDT)
I tried to log-in as well as to get a new password as well as to create a user with my old name. The latter was denied because that username is already in use, and my user page http://wikitravel.org/de/Benutzer:Schoschi still exists - so I guess my user sill exists. --Schoschi 2015-04-13 22:07
Likely you never registered the username at WT Shared, but just at WT English. Just register it here at Shared and you're good to go. IBobi talk email 17:09, 6 April 2015 (EDT)
OK, and where do I find the "register at WT shared" page? The link on the top right always leads me to http://wikitravel.org/wiki/de/index.php?title=Spezial:Anmelden&type=signup (Firefox) or http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&type=signup (Opera) and on both pages I get the error message "Username entered already in use." --Schoschi 2015-04-13 22:07 I found out that the target of the link "Create account" on the top right differs depending on the currently visited page; here in the pub page, it leads to http://wikitravel.org/wiki/shared/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&type=signup where I could successfully create a new user http://wikitravel.org/shared/User:Schoschi with my old name :) Sadly, I can't login with that user to the EN and DE pages/guides; what do I have to do for that? And how do I merge that one with my existing one http://wikitravel.org/de/Benutzer:Schoschi so my old edits, watchpages,... are available. Thank you for hints :) --Schoschi (talk) 16:48, 13 April 2015 (EDT)

Editing Zipolite[edit]

Hello,

I have been adding to the "Zipolite" page for several days now. I tried to post a picture of the sunset in the SEE section. Im not an expert with codes, so I still havent been able to add the picture properly. This is kind of annoying, but not the big issue.

The problem is that when Zipolite page is opened, the formatting has been changed. The "Sleep" and "Eat" sections have been combined with each other, and the page looks awful.

I then go back to the edit screen to try and fix the mess, and the formatting on the editing screen is correct, it should look perfect when opened up.

Any ideas...am I going to have to copy the whole page, then start over and paste it all together to make the page look correct again?

Help please!!!

Hi Mike -- please see IBcaldera's notes to you on your talk page: http://wikitravel.org/en/User_talk:Themikebrown78. You may want to set up your preferences there and here, so that you are alerted when someone writes to you. I'm sure IBcaldera can help you format! Welcome!

Cleveland Ohio Climate[edit]

I don't know why, but the Climate by Month information for Cleveland Ohio is very wrong for the summer months. It lists the Daily highs for July as 113 degrees Farenheit. That's absurd. It's not Palm Springs it's Cleveland.... I would say May-August are all very wrong and off by 20-30 degrees.

I'm not sure what weather source is typically used by WikiTravel. But Intellicast backs up my assertions that the values for Cleveland are our of whack.

I wanted to bring this to someone's attention. Hopefully someone who is more aware of the editing policies can eventually apply an update.

Thank you for the heads up! The numbers are now up-to-date! IBcaldera (talk) 20:19, 14 April 2015 (EDT)

Template for displaying non-latin languages[edit]

I'm currently editing the article about Bangkok and have made the experience that there is no template that allows users to display words in Thai script in an appropriate way. At least I haven't found it yet.

Voyage has a good template for displaying non-latin scripts by using the following markup (Thai example):

{{ThS|กรุงเทพๆ|w=Krung Thep|b=Bangkok|a=grung teep|i=IPA}}

Parameter 1 is the template ID, parameter 2 is the text in its original script, w parameter is the official transcription into latin alphabet, b the translation, a the pronunciation (if it differs from the official transcription). i shows the characters in IPA.

It'd be really helpful. —The preceding comment was added by Thaikolja (talkcontribs)

My Italian profile has been blocked[edit]

My IP is 88.49.22.25, and the block number is #383. The User Gobbler blocked my IP address for the italian page and there is no way for me to contact him, since the only way people can write to him is by using the discussion page which is now unaccessable to me because of my block. So I will write here hoping to get heeded or for instruction on who to speak with.

The reason for my blocking would be "link spamming", but the only thing I did was inserting in the apposite section for "dove alloggiare", that would be "where to sleep", the names and links to the hotels I manage, since I work for many accomodation facilities. I would say that a link to the hotel main page is not spamming, but information, which, I recon, is the whole purpose of this wiki. If I am doing something wrong, at least I would like to know.

Sarasota, FL, Travel Guide[edit]

There is a section in this Travel Guide to Sarasota, named “Stay Safe,” to which I had an extremely negative reaction. My wife and I have tutored at Emma E. Booker Elementary in Newtown for many years, and I presently have two “Little Brothers” who live in Newtown. To hear this neighborhood described as “notorious for drug related crime” to me is outrageously racist. None of the many men and women whom I have come to know has anything to do with drug related crime, and I’m sure this is true of the vast majority of Newtown residents. To label this neighborhood “notorious” is beyond the pale, and betrays a profound ignorance of the real Sarasota. —The preceding comment was added by 71.99.139.42 (talkcontribs)

Hi, thanks for the info, but you should use the article's talkpage. This is Wikitravel Shared. GiulioC (talk) 04:26, 13 May 2016 (EDT)

the prices listed in the centro Mexico city section - and I assume some other sections - are perhaps misleading: the $ should be identified as pesos, not US dollars.98.113.163.248 10:04, 23 May 2016 (EDT)

Problem with edit summary since software upgrade[edit]

Since the software upgrade on the English WT a month ago, sometimes when I do an edit, click "Show changes", write an edit summary, and try to save it, a pop-up asks me to write another, separate edit summary. The heading of the pop-up is "Publish to {{SITENAME}}". I reported this at WT EN pub a week after the upgrade. The problem is still happening. Nurg (talk) 05:52, 8 July 2016 (EDT)

Same here I am--of course--experiencing the same issue but I can save if I hit Enter again. Is that true for you as well, Nurg? Koavf (talk) 09:23, 8 July 2016 (EDT)
The edit summary is to be added in the pop-up only, once you hit publish, all will show up in the summary field then. As Koavf says, you can hit enter and it will save it anyway but then no summary will show. It would probably help to de-activate the old summary field, which I shared with tech already.

Illegal page[edit]

I suggest that you delete the following page as it is illegal to offer fake official documents:

Looks like this was taken care of. Adzas (talk) 09:44, 28 July 2016 (EDT)

Request photo change on Avebury page[edit]

The photo captioned Avebury on the page about Avebury is not Avebury and is misleading and should be replacved by one that actually is of Avebury http://wikitravel.org/en/Avebury Slartibartfast (talk) 03:23, 26 August 2016 (EDT)

Thanks for pointing that out. Would you be able to find a picture yourself for this article? If not, I will have a look and change it soonest. Adzas (talk) 11:46, 29 August 2016 (EDT)
