Beta not automatically enabled

Hi,

I have enabled the "Automatically enable all new beta features" option, globally. So, I thought the "Reference previews" beta feature would be automatically enabled. But when I checked the Preferences page in Wikipedia, the features was not enabled.

Why isn't the feature enabled automatically?

Hi Kaartic,

thanks for letting us know. Which Wikipedia did you check?Y

You mean that the checkbox for Reference Previews wasn't checked in your preferences, right?

If it was checked, but the feature itself isn't showing, one reason might be that you have the Navigation Popups gadget enabled.

Best,

Johanna

Yes, I had to enable it manually.

Thank you. I've created a Phabricator task for this (T236780) and we'll look into the issue.

Best,

Johanna
