Use the correct Arabic Wikipedia wordmark on mobile site
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points



The current logo shown on the Arabic Wikipedia mobile site is the default English one. Please use the one attached which is the same typeface used in the Arabic Wikipedia globe logo. Height should be adjusted to 28px instead of the 18px used for the English version. Thanks.

I'm guessing this is to go under $wgMFCustomLogos for arwiki, right?

Yes, with 'copyright-height' set to 28.

@Nirzar can you please take a look at this? Thanks!

Hey @Mido

Thank you for creating the SVG! My recommendation for this wordmark would be 22px height.

here's a comparison



Let me know what you think, I will create the svg right after.

NOTE: we will need to check if 28px will push the paddings and make the header taller. we don't have customizable paddings per wiki so there is a limit to the height of the wordmark. We can do it with commons.css if needed but would require coordination.

@Nirzar 22 looks better, I was actually testing in desktop browser on a slightly different version of the SVG, my bad. Please go ahead with 22px, thanks for your help.

@Mido Great!

Thanks, but I'm afraid this version is lacking one letter, and the dots under the letters (Nuqta) are cropped a bit. I adjusted it as below, please feel free to change if needed.

@Mido hmm weird. Sorry about that, my bad, thanks for catching that.

The new svg looks good. let's use that. updated the task description

We've just completed the deployment. @Nirzar @Mido would be great if you can sign off. @Mido looks like you tested a little early should be fine now :)

Mido claimed this task.

Seems I did test a bit early, working now on chrome but still have the error on safari due to cache. Signing off anyway, thanks :).
