Wikidata Query Service embedded results interface makes it difficult to access multiple pages of results
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

A table query result in Wikidata which returns more than 200 results (by default) is shown over multiple pages, with buttons to move between pages on the lower right.

In the embed.html form of the results (which gives the results without the SPARQL code at the top), there is a floating box on the bottom left of the screen to edit the query, and on the bottom right to select the result views (table, graph, map, etc). Unfortunately, when scrolled right to the bottom, the bottom right box fits perfectly over the page selector link - it is greyed out but as soon as the mouse moves to the page selectors, the box goes opaque and prevents them from being clicked on.

This means that to move between pages the user needs to carefully move the page around a bit to get the links visible but not covered by the selector box, which is very frustrating and not very intuitive.

It would be good if this box could be offset slightly (say, so it appeared over the last line of results rather than the navigation buttons?)

Replicated in Chrome on Windows (68?), plus Chrome on Linux (68, pictured below) and Firefox on Linux (61).

(page without box selected, page after mouseover)
