Visually hide redundant legend on special pages
Open, NormalPublic


It is just visual noise duplicating the title in the legend on following pages, out of 53 core pages:

  • Special:Allpages legend “All pages”
    • Special:Prefixindex legend “Allpages with prefix”
  • Special:ExpandTemplates legend “Expand templates”
  • Special:NewPages legend “New pages”
  • Special:PagesWithProp legend “Pages with a page property”
  • Special:UserList legend “User list”

With one paragraph in between title and legend

Alters legend by tiny bit in contrast to title:

  • Special:AutoBlockList legend “List autoblocks”
  • Special:BookSources legend “Search for book sources”
  • Special:BlockedUsers legend “Find a blocked user”
  • Special:DeletedContributions legend “Search for contributions” vs title “Deleted user contributions”
  • Special:Contributions legend “Search for contributions” vs title “User contributions”
  • Special:UserRights legend “Search for user” vs title “User rights”

Doesn't provide a legend at all

  • Special:WithoutInterwiki
