Customizable!

Can you make all a bit more customizable? For example, I ALWAYS want to read the talks "as wiki page". Also the "Move" button would be useful. I'm Ignazio Cannata.

Hairy Dude (talkcontribs)

I second this. The fancy new presentation for talk pages is just awful and I wish I could make it go away without disabling all other advanced mode features.

How can I see my huge watchlist article by article rather than change by change, in mobile? PamD (talk) 08:58, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

AHollender (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@PamD unfortunately this is not possible within the Advanced Mode. So you need to turn off Advanced Mode in order to do that.

PamD (talkcontribs)

I have switched it off and still only see the change-by-change watchlist. PamD (talk) 23:39, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

Hi, what's the rationale about why categories are not available as a default in the mobile view?

Already available in beta features.

MassiveEartha (talkcontribs)

I know but that is not obvious to the average reader.

I think there is a case to be made that categories should be enabled for amc users. I'm not sure why it isn't. Please raise a phabricator ticket if that's wanted. I believe it's just a config change.

@Jdlrobson: I can create a phabricator task, no problem. Don't you think this one is related to phab:T152199, which has been marked as stalled for more than a year?

Pelagic (talkcontribs)

Would like to enable categories without also enabling the floating go-to-top link.

Jdlrobson (talkcontribs)

The go to top link has been removed from the codebase. Are you running an old version?

Pelagic (talkcontribs)

I was referring to the version in use on Wikimedia sites, but that was some time ago.

I had noticed a Categories button appeared at some stage in mobile/Minerva on en-wp -- tested just now and see that it's specific to AMC. *thumbs-up*

Why the lack of explicit provisions on editing and creating of self imposed profiles for better viewer perception in wiki's start page

I find it hard posting a photo and making major statistical outlines to make a good publish

I can't see a way to add a new section in mobile edit

Newystats (talkcontribs)

An I missing this, or is there no way to do it. In visual edit, no button, and in source edit I only see the top paragraph. Using Chrome on Android.

Newystats (talkcontribs)

OK, I've worked it out. Use source editing in the section above the desired location of the new section. It would be good to have an add a new section button.

AHollender (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Newystats are you referring to a Talk page or an Article page?

Newystats (talkcontribs)

This was in an Article page

AHollender (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Newystats thanks for clarifying. It sounds like you've figured this out. In case you'd like to further explore this topic you might want to write a note to the Editing team.

Wikipedia should have the dark mode which would facilitate the readers and would give them a strain free reading.

Obeten Emmanuel (talkcontribs)

To me dark mode is one of the best advantages as it enables reading ease.This lulls as a bit of a defect ;I'd really appreciate this attribute
