This discussion page is for comments, feedback, and thoughts on the work to improve contribution tools on mobile web.

Encycloon (talkcontribs)

On the Dutch Wikipedia, there are complaints/comments about the missing categories section in the default mobile modus. Is it part (or can it become part) of "Next Steps" to add this function also to the 'normal' modus?

For the love of God, please add an Undo button in the diffs!

As far as I know, there has always been only a big Thank button

Ok ohhh 🙏 🙏 🙏 🙏 🙏 🙏 no problem

Bageense (talkcontribs)

I've installed it, thanks. But this really needs to be implemented as default. Urgently.

It's not hard... theres plenty of room.

Sometimes I stumble upon vandalisms, but am too lazy to open the article, go to history etc.. and then try to continue browsing from where I stopped.

Thanks, let me see if the script works...

Ainz Ooal Gown (talkcontribs)

The undo script can be installed to a local wiki, as a gadget. So that it can be enabled from a user preferences. Regarding adding an undo button to a diff page on mobile, the task is being tracked in phab:T191706. Currently Readers web team isn't working on this task despite the task is triaged as high priority.

Bageense (talkcontribs)

Seems lika a quite old task. Can you do anuthing so that it will be seen? I mean, I know we're all volunteers, but that's not.hard to be done. The undo buttons already exist in the history page of the articles.... thaat should make things even easier.

Again, I know we're volunteers, but the slow pace of Wikimedia kind of annoys me a little.... things are slow...


Ainz Ooal Gown (talkcontribs)

Seeing that noone is currently working on the task, I asked User:FR30799386 to work on it, since he created a the undo script. But he has been facing some real life problems, and is going to be inactive for 3 weeks.

Bageense (talkcontribs)

Sorry about typos, I'm on mobile

Ebubespencer (talkcontribs)

Ok nah there is no problem


Still no updates on this???

What happened to the Wikidata button?

Gotitbro (talkcontribs)

I used to get the link to the Wikidata property for an article when I clicked the menu button. But I can’t see it now.

What happened, was it removed? I found it very useful as I regularly use Wikidata.

Jdlrobson (talkcontribs)

Can you raise a phabricator ticket noting the wiki you are seeing this? That sounds like a bug to me. I am not aware of it being removed intentionally.

Gotitbro (talkcontribs)

@Jdlrobson Can you tell me how and where to do that exactly? I am even seeing this on enwiki and other language wikis as well. Even on a simulated mobile device in Chrome.

Ser possível editar em todas as seções de uma só vez

Tawan Silva Mendes (talkcontribs)

Olá, venho aqui sugerir, que tenha um botão que dê a possibilidade ao editor, editar todas as seções de uma só vez em uma página na versão móvel da wikipédia, isso porque, atualmente, se o editor quiser editar uma página inteira com várias seções, ele vai ter que editar e salvar em uma por uma seção.

SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Olá, sinto muito responder em inglês. Eu nao falo português.

Thank you for sharing this idea with us. You are right to suggest that this would be useful, and we will bear that in mind.

Unfortunately, currently, our team is working on the Design Improvements only, and we are just maintaining the advanced mobile contributions (but not developing any further functionalities).

BTW, I encourage you to take a look at the Design Improvements page. What do you think about that project?

Custom CSS and Javascript?

MJL (talkcontribs)

I thought this carried over to an extent on mobile. I know it used to at least. Either way, a link in the settings to Special:Preferences from Special:MobileOptions would be appreciated. In the meantime, I'm going to file a bug report when I get home.

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

Reply to "Dark mode" (talkcontribs)

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.

Jdlrobson (talkcontribs)

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.

Ainz Ooal Gown (talkcontribs)

@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*
