Large picture, isn't it?

Fram: Would you suggest forcing a maximum size on images? We currently allow default image sizes to be shown, so that would be a change...

(However, I will go file a bug for MediaViewer BetaFeature not working here...)

So, no hyperlinks in topic header?

Quiddity (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Fram: Correct. Topic titles are plaintext only, at least for now. See bugzilla:57153 for prior discussion. There's also bugzilla:57950 asking for there to be a warning-popup for the editor, to explain this if they start typing markup.

This will definitely be discussed again (and onwiki), but it isn't a crucial feature for the release to Wikiprojects, so is on the backburner.

Tip for wiki admins: How are very long tips displayed? Let's see what happens when I go on and on and on and on and on and on

Fram: Hmm, it's working differently on ee-flow - eg here - perhaps the <pre> formatting is because the template:reflist used on mw.o is an old version?

I'm also not sure why the [1] isn't superscripted properly. I'll file a bug for that specifically (bugzilla:60017), and ask if the pre-formatting problem needs a separate bug or not.

Fram: Let me repeat the same HTML as your test...

  • The <pre> formatting is fixed, probably due to Parsoid changes.
  • The lack of superscript may be because Parsoid doesn't run the <ref> tag through Extension:Cite/Cite.php it doesn't use the PHP parser's hooks. But it clearly does something with the tag... The fix might be to have Parsoid CSS matching the built-in browser styling of sup, i.e. span.reference { font-size: smaller; line-height: normal; vertical-align: super;}. I updated bugzilla:60017.
  • The hyperlinks between the citation [1] and the reference are #citeanchor fragments, but because the Flow page includes a <base href="/wiki/Talk:Sandbox"> (in order to make relative links work?), following the links when you're viewing this topic in isolation makes you leave the current page, and if it's scrolled off the Flow board the link won't work. I filed bugzilla:62691
  • Each post restarts its citation counters. It's technically illegal HTML to have two id=cite_note-1 and it's undefined what hyperlinks using that as a fragment will do. So citations may never work correctly when the Flow board or single topic view shows more than one post using them.

Uh, that's an ugly layout for references...
