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

Rendering problem[edit]

I think I've done the markup correctly for a section but it renders incorrectly. A large portion of the paragraph is bold + italic instead of regular. What needs to be changed for it to render properly? Larsnooden (discusscontribs) 08:07, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

@Larsnooden: Fixed. —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:22, 4 December 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. I see now the omission. It was pretty far downstream from the symptoms! Larsnooden (discusscontribs) 08:28, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

Not in Card Catalog Office[edit]

My new "Numerical calculations and rigorous mathematics" does not appear on the Subject:University level mathematics books page but does appear on the Category:Subject:University level mathematics books page. Why so? Boris Tsirelson (discusscontribs) 10:41, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

Done Now it does: I've just refreshed the page by editing it with no modification. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 13:10, 18 December 2017 (UTC)
Nice; thank you. Boris Tsirelson (discusscontribs) 14:38, 18 December 2017 (UTC)
