Portal set to RTL language: project icons are placed confusingly
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If you look at the portal in an RTL language, you'll see that the project icons are placed quite far from the text that describes them, but very close to the text that describes other projects in the adjacent column. So, for example, the label for "Commons" appears next to the icon for Wikivoyage, and the label "Wikivoyage" appears next to the icon for Wiktionary.

The icons must be moved to appear next to the labels that correspond to them.

Added a screenshot of the portal set to Arabic:

With this patch (deployed March 14)
the sister project icons for RTL have been improved.

The Wikimedia icon and the mobile app icon are still misplaced, so I'll keep the ticket open until those are resolved.

Moving this to done - the icons are in a good spot and this is a bit of pixel pushing...
