Description

Summary

Expose currently unavailable pages on the mobile website using the Minerva skin as an opt-in setting option and improve pages to allow for better usability on mobile

The mobile skin "Minerva" causes certain editing and contribution workflows to be unavailable. The skin hides certain pages as they were not optimized for mobile devices and increased the complexity of the interface. Their absence prevents contributors from being able to edit and moderate from the mobile web. The Readers Web team has listened to requests from communities and has an increased focus on contribution workflows for the upcoming year. The team is working on exposing currently unavailable pages to provide better editing functionality on the mobile web. Our plan is to build this as an opt-in feature which editors can enable. We believe this will decrease the necessity of switching between the desktop and mobile sites while on a mobile device and provide a better mobile editing experience.

Although this subtask may seem strange, we'll probably want to make sure OOjs UI is as light as possible before exposing pages on mobile. ^
