Visual editing project pages[edit source]

Is there a reason visual editing is not enabled for project pages (e.g. Wikibooks namespace)? I 1) have a harder time using the source editor and 2) tend to make more, smaller edits when using it, which I know can be annoying.

Troubleshooting shelves template[edit source]

Hello! I've noticed that Template:Shelves seems to interact negatively with the visual editor: the template "object" sort of "eats" the text immediately before the template is called. This makes it impossible to interact with the "eaten" text in the visual editor. See, for example, Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry. I'm wondering if it has to do with Module:TScope, but this is getting beyond my abilities to diagnose. Would love some help here. Thanks! —Kittycataclysm (discusscontribs) 23:03, 5 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
