How many times were you able to reproduce it?
Steps to reproduce
- Search for "San Francisco"
- Open the article in the app
Article is showing
Only lead image is showing
App version: 1403, latest
OS versions: 11.2 (all?)
Device model: iPhone X (all?)
Device language: EN
CAUSE of the iOS app not showing the article at all:
Some of our page loading JS didn't account for the API delivering newline chars in the article descriptions - was escaping quotes and backslashes but didn't anticipate that the descriptions would be anything but plain text w/o special chars such as newlines.
Desktop portal showing this weird newline as well:
We have a fix to make the iOS app more resilient to handle this ( https://github.com/wikimedia/wikipedia-ios/pull/2332 ), but without fixing this upstream the desktop portal (and other places?) would still exhibit unwanted newlines.
