Tagline is missing in Timeless
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Timeless does not include the tagline (site subtitle), unlike the other skins available on Wikimedia wikis.

Technically fixed skin-side (it's now there, but as with in other skins, hidden by default), but it's up to the project(s) to actually unhide it if desired. Related:'From_Wikipedia,_the_Free_Encyclopedia')
