Next steps

  • Post update to main project page announcing:
    • Edit Cards v2.0 test
    • Summary of Edit Cards v1.0 test

Anything actionable related to the deployment of Edit Cards v2 is now represented in the task description of this ticket: T227894


The below come from Editor testing Etherpad

  • Have the test instructions be translated into multiple languages
  • Create testing articles in multiple languages
  • Have the testing wiki more closely resemble a live wiki (i.e. create more articles so wikilink searches return more results)


  • How can we have more experienced *mobile* contributors participate?

What flows worked

  • Add a new link
  • Change the target of an existing link to another Wikipedia article
  • Change the target of an existing link to an external link
  • Remove an existing link

What flows can be improved

Editing a link label

  • Confusion about not landing back on the Edit Card after having changed link
  • Tap "Edit" link label > all of the text in the label is selected...this means any keystroke will delete the entire label
  • Not being clear what to do after tapping the "✎" to edit the link's label
  • Tap "Edit" link label > expects to remain in the cards vs. being put back in the document
  • Confused edit card doesn't appear after double-tapping on an existing link

Adding an external link

  • Not clear what the "?" icon in article search results means
  • Not clear what an "external link" means

Suggested tweaks

Editing a link label

  • Implement a more structured approach to editing an existing link's label, like what we've talked about here: T225725#5269098
  • Default to having a tap on the "edit link label" edit pencil default to the cursor being placed within the label rather than the entirety of the label being highlighted. See: T228227
