F1. Enable Flow on all public wikis
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When somebody on a project wants to try out Flow, I'd like to have it available.

This ticket is to enable Flow (with no visible pages) on every public wiki where it currently isn't.

The patch is updated. This requires product approval to confirm whether to enable Flow on wikis without VisualEditor.

There are also some technical things to confirm (e.g. there was a problem with Flow talk page manager on Commons).

Are there any Wikipedias that don't have VisualEditor?

The original purpose of this ticket was to enable Flow on all Wikipedias. It seems like it's running into delays based on non-WP issues. Is it possible to undo the scope creep and just have this on all WPs? There are several that are asking for Flow pages.

No.

We can do all public wikis if you're okay with enabling it on Wikisource and Wiktionary (despite them not having VE).

If not (or you just want to defer that decision), we can enable on all public wikis except Wikisource and Wiktionary. There is no real reason I know of to only do Wikipedias.

We said we'll enable it on the non-VE ones as well, but discuss again before actually enabling any pages there due to the lack of preview.

Most of these are not expected to actually have Flow boards, but Flow should now be installed on all public wikis.

A side note;
When VE is not checked in user Preferences - the VE is an option for editing pages. Except Flow Talk pages - users will always have VE options displayed even if they disabled it in their Preferences. Is it what was intended?

@Etonkovidova Yes, that is the intended behavior.

We don't want to tie the VE/wikitext preference for articles with the preference for Flow posts, because the way that you switch is very different. You can switch back and forth in the middle of a Flow post, but to change your edit window preference, you have to go into beta features. So if you switch from source to VE in a Flow post, then the next time you edit an article, you'd have to go to Beta and choose wikitext again.
