- In testwiki, go to Translation and select English-espanol lang in the language options.
- Click 'Start new translation' and type 'Mac' in the 'Search for source page' field.
- Select 'MacOS' article - the article starts with infobox template.
- Click on the infobox template in the left panel (the English) - the Spanish wiki infobox equivalent gets displayed.
- Click in the Spanish equivalent of template, the template will be highlighted and the pencil icon will appear in the middle of the template.
Yes, the pen/edit icon indicates that you can click it to Edit the template. See template editing in action https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:CX-TemplateEditor.ogg
So it works as expected. What problem you see here?
@santhosh It does not look super user friendly
- the position of the pencil icon varies - for example, in ruwiki it will be placed well down the template
- the pencil icon is obscured by the text and might not be easily discoverable
- it seems that it's not actually required to to click on the pencil icon to start editing the template - two clicks or a double-click will make the template editable
- placing the pencil icon somewhere at the top of a template box may give users a better visual prompt
I agree we should not have a pencil icon there.
