How to add categories now? The option is gone.

@Jdlrobson: but these gadgets don't work on the mobile version. Wikipedia still has the option to add categories, but not Wikinews and Wikivoyage.

I edited it on Wikinews and it's working (1), thanks.

update: @Jdlrobson: I tried to add a category, but an error occurs. On Wikimedia Commons too.

Jdlrobson (talkcontribs)

There was an error with the script. I believe it should be fixed now.

Edu! (talkcontribs)

@Jdlrobson: that's right now, thanks. Could you also change the category suggestions? Currently the text is overlapping the other (example)

Jdlrobson (talkcontribs)

Did you share the correct example link?

I'm not sure how to improve the design of the gadget as I am not actually it's maintainer so I'd suggest requesting a fix on its talk page.

I need dark mode. Wikipedia is way too bright in the evening. My phone is set to dark mode but Wikipedia is still bright.

Sections opening automatically makes it unwieldy

I've been using Wiktionary as an aid for learning a second language. It's been great, except every time I open a new page it just opens every single section/heading automatically, with no setting to change it.

Often, by the time I scroll far enough to find the language I'm looking for, I've lost focus on my goal and it's putting unnecessary stress on my mind, which is detrimental to the whole process.

Just adding an option to leave the sections closed would save me a lot of time and stress.

I can not possibly be the only one with this problem.

Typo Edit for “Advanced Mobile Contributions”

Ribbitribit (talkcontribs)

Note: I’ve inserted numbers within brackets for ease of finding problematic copy I’m addressing. They should not be included in edit.

Someone may want to correct the following sentences, on https://m.mediawiki.org/wiki/Reading/Web/Advanced_mobile_contributions

under Project Summary > Advanced Mode

“....Advanced mode adds navigational elements and menus [1]which that allow easy access to talk pages, history pages, [2]Page information, and various other page tools, user tools, and special pages. [3] Additionally special pages...”

Suggested edited version: “Advanced mode adds navigational elements and menus, allowing easy access to talk pages, history pages, Page information, and various other page tools, user tools, and special pages. Additionally, special pages...”

Changes: 1. Make active via use of “allowing” vs “which” or “that”. Or, at a minimum, use either “which” or “that”, not both. 2. Should “Page” be capitalized here? It isn’t in multiple uses throughout sentence. Yet it is consistent with actual “Page info” links throughout site. 3. Add comma following “Additionally”; standard grammar.

@Ribbitribit thanks for your suggestions here. Would you like to make the edit yourself or would you prefer if I did it?

How do I find out who is editing my page?

My page is being altered or edited. How do I find out who has been doing it?

Omotecho (talkcontribs)

Excuse me, but you wrote with your IP address (i.e. not logged in.) log in, or create an account on this wiki as well, comment again so that the community will check the situation.

I would find it helpful to have a coloured feedback, whether contributions have already been viewed, or similar.

Alex Hollender (talkcontribs)

Hey @Quant8 can you please explain what screen you are referring to? Thanks

Quant8 (talkcontribs)

I'm talking about my user contributions list, there I had wished as a newbie to see at the colored marking which of my edits are already sighted and which are not. Greeting Quant8

Quant8 (talkcontribs)

Hello, I now know why my request can not be understood, viewing/sighting (in German: Sichten) is a peculiarity that only the German, Russian and Polish Wikipedia have, the meaning is briefly explained here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia#Restrictions. Greetings.

AHollender (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Quant8 ok, I think I understand your request. This seems like a proposal that would be relevant beyond the scope of "advanced" mode on mobile. Perhaps you could post about it on the Village Pump of your home Wikipedia?

Strainu (talkcontribs)

It would be great if the advanced mode would include administrative tools (block, change user rights etc)

Liquet (talkcontribs)

I support this. I only use smartphone and as sysop at ptwikinews i can't do too much at the mobile version. @AHollender (WMF) pls see this.

AHollender (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Liquet would you be able to open a feature request about this on Phabricator and tag it with Advance Mobile Contributions?
