VisualEditor is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor for MediaWiki. It is one of the two available edit modes, along with the older source editing.


VisualEditor is currently available in the following namespaces:

  • Main
  • User
  • Category
  • File

VisualEditor does not work on talk pages.

Skin Support

VisualEditor was originally designed for the default MediaWiki skins, which have the best support for it. ScratchWikiSkin2 does support VisualEditor reasonably well, but fixing remaining issues is a work-in-progress.

Known Issues

  • VisualEditor does not currently render the <scratchblocks> tag and does not support adding blocks to articles.
  • VisualEditor does not work on subpages (for example, it works on Curator (front page) but not Curator (front page)/List of Curators). A potential workaround has been implemented and is currently being tested.
  • VisualEditor does not work in transcluded and big pages.
  • VisualEditor leaves an awkward space at the top of the page after editing on ScratchWikiSkin, which disappears if the page is reloaded.
