User icon does not show on watchlist page
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When visiting http://localhost:8888/w/index.php?title=Special:Watchlist&watchlistview=feed&filter=all you'll see that no user icon appears next to the username of the editor despite the icon HTML being there. This leaves an empty gap which is confusing to the reader.


This tasks requires that MediaWiki core and MobileFrontend extension are installed and properly setup.


User icon is not being rendered before username when displaying list of edits by users, but rather, there is a space before the username which is suppose to be a user icon.


The result of this problem should be a user icon to display beside(to the left) each username as expected when listing the edits by users (watchlist).

@D3r1ck01: Can you please improve the task description? For example, I'd assume that this task requires to have the extension MobileFrontend installed, and lacks a description of the expected outcome of a patch. Thanks!

Should we close as resolved or do we need to wait? @Jdlrobson

@Jdlrobson For future reference, what is the login I can use to play around with things? I usually just use vagrant to test locally.

I'm not sure I understand. You can create an account on if you need to test there.
