Some issues with the moving target UW
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

There are some issues with the current version of the UW as of today (2015-12-10).

  • Selecting another language does not work, advance typing is not left bound (typing eng should select english, but it selects altenglish at the moment, as there is no way to select the second / third / … value in the select box. The only choice as for now is to scroll down the complete list and find the additional language (usability!)
  • Selecting categories should allow to navigate the category tree the same way HotCat does. (here category names are left bound!)
    • this should include the possibility to change already selected categories (like with HotCat).
  • backspacing characters should stop at the category border. It looks as if a category entry is treated just the same as a single character. One backspace too many and the previous category will also be deleted. backspace needs at least to pause considerably.
  • Where is the enlarged preview of the thumbs? (by clicking on the thumbs)

Hi @Herzi.Pinki, thanks for taking the time to report this!

Please split this task into several tasks in order to only include one problem per report - see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug

Could you clarify if this is a regression? Did it work in the past?

The main problem here is that the UW is getting 'improved' all the time and sometimes it is getting worse. Thus I put things together. But to help you to fix the problems I will split the task. See subtasks for details. In general, this is a core feature of Commons and it would be nice to do proper regression testing.

Thank you! I don't see them technically as subtasks, hence I will decline this task and let these four tasks live their independent lifes. :)

That's a high-level discussion probably best to have on the Multimedia mailing list...
