Allow users to resize page previews
Open, LowPublic

Description

It has been requested that we allow users to resize the preview window so that the preview can be made larger.

original report

How about more greater option for AJAX internal wikilinks window.

Also enable option with page previews in other namespaces, wikipedia rules pages, user pages etc.

developer notes

Making the preview size dynamic would likely requirement many adjustments throughout the codebase in particular the "pokey" pointer that points to the link and thumbnail both work on the assumption that the size is fixed.

Given preview api endpoint is heavily cached supporting different thumbnail sizes is non-trivial.

How about more greater option for AJAX internal wikilinks window.

Hey there! I'm unfortunately not understanding the problem you are reporting here. Could you possibly add some screenshots and explain some more?

Also enable option with page previews in other namespaces, wikipedia rules pages, user pages etc.

I believe this is a duplicate request of T198637

@Axon-x have I captured your request correctly? Is the problem here that the text is hard to read? For instance if we supported a larger font size in the previews would that solve the problem you are facing?
