You broke CroptoolEdit

Your recent update forces users to the "Authorization required " window when trying to crop images even though the tool has been given authorization already and repeatedly ....--Stemoc (talk) 00:25, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

@Stemoc: But it works after you re-authorized, right? Re-authorization was needed because the scope of the tool was extended from Commons to all Wikimedia projects. – Danmichaelo (δ) 09:45, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Thats the problem, i have repeatedly authorized it, its just not going to the crop keeps telling me "Authorization required " even though i have repeatedly given it authorization and it appears in my "Managed Apps" section is the web console log for the problem, hope u can make heads or tails out of this..--Stemoc (talk) 12:29, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm forced to manually remove cookies for wmflabs everytime i try to crop an image. it probably does not like firefox browser..the mwkey and mwsecret keys ..the problem maybe "Send For" as the other tools use on wmflabs use "Any type of connection" and your tool uses "Encrypted connections only" --Stemoc (talk) 15:22, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
@Stemoc: Thanks for providing more info. You're right that it's probably related to the cookies. Authorization is stored in those cookies, meaning you should in general only have to re-authorize whenever you loose the cookies, or whenever you use a new browser or computer. I'm still a bit confused. I've tested with Firefox, and it works for me. You do use the tool with https, right? I noticed that the automatic redirect from http to https does not work now. And do you have to re-authorize each time you want to crop a file, or each time you restart the browser? And this began after the update? – Danmichaelo (δ) 15:40, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Btw. I fixed a http→https redirect now. It's quite important since the cookies are not available unless you use https. – Danmichaelo (δ) 15:45, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Its working now, thanks..I love the tool, probably the only one who uses it the most :P --Stemoc 01:29, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
@Stemoc: Great to hear, also that you love the tool :) – Danmichaelo (δ) 15:06, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

By the way, Croptool appears to be broken again. Specifically, it turns up an error when you try to go to the authorization page. G S Palmer (talk) 15:50, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

@G S Palmer: Thanks for notifying me! There had been a change in the OAuth service I was not aware of. Authorization should work again now.. – Danmichaelo (δ) 23:28, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Yep, working fine. G S Palmer (talk) 14:40, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dan. This tool's been broken for me for a while, and seems to be due to this OAth issue - it just keeps kicking me back to the authorisation page after clicking Connect. I can't remember if I've ever had it working using OAuth, but I've definitely had other tools work that use it. I've tried deleting cookies, and checking/unchecking in Gadgets. I'm using chrome, and it all appears to be using https throughout the sequence. Any suggestions? It's a great tool btw, I can't imagine going back to the manual method now. I do have one suggestion though - is it possible to add Template:Image extracted to the donor file? Ultra7 (talk) 18:57, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

@Ultra7 The tool's been using OAuth right since it launched, but you're perhaps refering to CropBot, which the tool is inspired by? Anyways, thanks for letting me know about the problem. I'm not really sure where to start looking though. If you go to Special:OAuthManageMyGrants, do you see CropTool listed? Version 1.2? If you see it listed, you could try to recall it, although I don't really expect that to help.. – Danmichaelo (δ) 19:08, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
No, definitely CropTool. It was listed as 1.2, I removed and re-authorised, but no change. It definitely stopped working for me about a month ago - I didn't do anything about it at the time as I thought it would be back up later, and I wasn't needing to do much cropping at the time. Ultra7 (talk) 21:01, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Dan, seems like the same bug, asks for authorization everytime i try to use it..i use the tool on https but i use wikimedia on http, can you fix it again please?..I'm your biggest (non-paying :P) client :P--Stemoc 00:39, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

@Stemoc Sorry I missed your message. I didn't even know it was possible to use Commons without https while logged in, did you configure that somewhere? Does it work if you use Commons with https? I'm not really sure where to start looking for the problem yet, so any hints be welcome. – Danmichaelo (δ) 23:17, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
I use commons without https since forever.. :P btw, it seems the problem was related to a failure in the OAuth extension and not just your tool, it was fixed within day of my comment ..sorry :)--Stemoc 01:01, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Well, I just tried again for the first time in ages, and it's still not working for me (yet I can still use other tools, I authorised the Flickr upload tool only yesterday). It definitely doesn't let me even try to use http, it simply redirects to https (I suppose that's the whole point of OAuth). Is it possible for me to try the version of the code before you expanded it to all wikis - just to confirm whether or not that's the change which broke it for me? Ultra7 (talk) 15:17, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

@Ultra7 Not in a simple way that won't break the tool for others.. I'm planning to add more logging though, so I have a better chance to investigate problems – right now I don't have a clue if this is a problem that affects many people or not. The only thing I know is that the tool works for many people. One thing I'm curious about is if you do get the cookies or not. If possible, could you check if you have "mwKey" and "mwSecret" under Resources > Cookies in Developer Tools? – Danmichaelo (δ) 00:02, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Nope. Inspecting it while on an image page, i.e., I don't have either of those. I do have centralauth_Token and centralauth_User, but I suspect that's from the TUSC era? The others look pretty standard fare, and I do have forceHTTPS, which explains the inability to use http. Ultra7 (talk) 00:12, 14 December 2014 (UTC)


Hei! Jeg vil ikke redigere på brukersiden din og lurer på om du kan legge til Nordlandsmuseet i listen fra Digitalt Museum. Category:Media from the collection of Nordlandsmuseet, Category:Nordlandsmuseet, Bodø og Institution:Nordlandsmuseet Mvh.--Anne-Sophie Ofrim (talk) 11:37, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Takk, har lagt den til :) – Danmichaelo (δ) 12:01, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
