WriteAnalog interview[edit]

WriteAnalog seems to have gone away, but the interview is still available at It's in the ref as archive-url, but the template seems to be missing that functionality. SnorkelFiller (talk) 15:12, 13 August 2018 (CEST)

I assume you refer to the functionality of adding urls that get automatically changed to webarchive urls. I assume on Wikipedia this has been programmed with Lua, which we don't run. We are just too small for that. If it can be done with a template without Lua and you can point me in the right direction I will be happy to try to make it happen. If you know someone who can help to get Lua working on our cheapo server (we don't get donations and don't have advertising) please let me know. Alternatively you could just use the webarchive url for now. --Memm (talk) 17:00, 14 August 2018 (CEST)
Hi Memm! I was talking about the cite web template, which I'm used to having archive-url/archive-date fields. I'll see if I can figure out how to add it to the s.w version. SnorkelFiller (talk) 18:55, 14 August 2018 (CEST)
Hi, we do have the cite web template and you have used it, it just doesn't support archive-url 😟 for the reasons mentioned above. -- 18:58, 14 August 2018 (CEST)
Maybe I need to read up on MediaWiki templates. I've manually entered the archive-url address, so I thought Lua wouldn't be required. SnorkelFiller (talk) 16:22, 20 August 2018 (CEST)
Thank you. As far as I know the part of the template that replaces the url marked as an archive-url with the archive url is using Lua. If you ever find out, please let us know. It would be great to have better templates at --Memm (talk) 16:36, 20 August 2018 (CEST)
