Replace ASCII pseudo-arrows with proper Unicode symbols for en.wn diffs
Closed, InvalidPublic


At the present, a diff uses "<-" and "->" to direct users to previous and subsequent edits, rather than "←" and "→". If you want a quick view, see and compare it with or or or or or really any other project as far as I'm aware. Somehow, en.wn seems to be the only project where I'm seeing this. It's a pretty low-importance fix but it's also probably very simple to deploy and it irks me every time I see a diff on en.wn.

Thanks for reporting this!
Going to you see that the string IDs are previousdiff and nextdiff.
Looking at and you can see that these are customized messages on en.wn. Hence this needs to be changed and fixed on-wiki, and changing on-wiki content is out of scope for Phabricator.

Huh. Thanks for the heads-up. I'm surprised this is even customized... I suspect that if they are just deleted outrite they will revert to the default behavior which is Unicode arrows.
