Instantly move up the translation page

Tracked and fixed in phabricator:T295655.

DDPAT 2.0 (talkcontribs)

On Special:Translate, where the largest number of messages is used, there is an unpleasant bug. If you reach the lowest messages, the page flips you to the top of the page, and then you don't know where you left off. Can you fix this problem?

Does this also apply to that tool?

Seb35 (talkcontribs)

To understand the issue, developers need to know your platform and software:

  • browser: Firefox/Chrome/Edge/Safari… + version
  • type of device: smartphone/computer/tablet…
  • preferably operating system: Windows, MacOS, Android, Linux…

Could you create a screencast to capture a video of the issue?

(Personnally, when I open Special:Translate and go to the end of the page, more translation units are loaded during a few seconds, then appears after and the page remains where it is without moving.)

I have a Windows 10 Pro computer. I use Google Chrome with constantly updated versions. I will make the video a little later and drop it here (if I can without the use of video services).

DDPAT 2.0 (talkcontribs)

I don't know how to share videos here, and I also can't upload to some Wikimedia.

Can you upload it on Phabricator with this form?

If you never logged in on Phabricator, you can use your Wikimedia account: on Phabricator, click on 'Log in' to top right, click on 'Log In or Register with MediaWiki', you will be redirected to MediaWiki.org website, click on 'Authorize', then you should be able to upload the file with the link above.

(I hope your file will be accepted there, else I guess it should be accepted on Commons.)

I was able to reproduce it with Firefox 94 on Linux (Debian), so it’s probably reproductible with the video on multiple browsers. I remark it is only on the first tab (“List”) but there is no issue on the other tabs “Page” or “Review”.

Do you want to open the bug yourself on Phabricator, or I do it? (If you want, it is this form from “Report a Software Bug” on top right.)

DDPAT 2.0 (talkcontribs)

Yes, if possible, create a request yourself, because I do not understand its form.

The task is created: phabricator:T295655. You should receive email notifications when there are new comments.

I identified the issue (see my comment on the task); this behaviour was created to open the first “transation unit” (=message to be translated) on small pages (less than 100 translation units) like this page. In my opinion, this behaviour is fine in this case.

The patch is merged! It will be included in the deployment tomorrow on mediawiki.org, see MediaWiki 1.38/wmf.9.
