Convert Special:ListFiles to OOUI and improve UX
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Uses HTMLForm already.

Requested user experience improvements:

  • "Go" button should be labelled "Search" further discussed in T194067
  • Button should be progressive

Improving pagination as asked for at T113436 is out of scope of this task and will be addressed in future as task on its own.

Convert Special:ListFiles to OOUI

Hmm, I'm not really convinced currently:

There isn't much space left fpr the much more important list :/ It's probably the same problem as in T117724: Convert Special:AllPages to OOUI.

I see. So should I bring the label and the field in the same line, or is there something else which needs to be worked upon?

@Volker_E I'd be interested if we can find some way to merge this with MobileFrontend's Special:Uploads view (see T102139)

Wondering if we should rather change the button to “Show file list” over “Search”…?

Without legend (hidden & available only for screenreaders) and “Show file list” button:

Yeah, that's nice, but still a bit strong?
