Problems with Gutenberg encoding[edit]

I find problems with character encodings in the Gutenberg material. Most recently ṃ when it should have been ṁ, and ṅ when it should have been ṇ (v. 13, p. 501). I think I've only found problems with dotted characters so far. Bob Burkhardt (talk) 18:04, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Gutenberg is not 100% accurate, I find the occasional issue (I found a superscript number instead of subscript recently for example) but overall the quality is very good. Remember you can use my conversion script to convert Gutenberg text (it automatically does the ndashes for year ranges and adds EB1911 footer initials etc.) It always pays to check it yourself though afterwards.

Two archiving bots available[edit]

FYI. The bots user:Wikisource-bot and user:SpBot are both available to automatically archive if you need them to do so. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:18, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Thanks, I guessed there was but did not know their names. I have installed the config file for user:Wikisource-bot (chosen because the do documentation was better). I hope it works :-) --PBS (talk) 16:00, 25 March 2017 (UTC)

Many link in an artilce[edit]

Pages numbers now missing when viewing transcluded articles?[edit]

Anybody also have missing page numbers when viewing transcluded articles? e.g. Crookes, Sir William. The page numbers used to appear on the left of the article text. DivermanAU (talk) 19:52, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Many others are experiencing this as well. [1] Londonjackbooks (talk) 20:41, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
