[Bug] Commons Structured Data clicks through to Wikidata in Dropdown
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

When using the desktop editing interface for SDC on Mobile or a Tablet, when you click on the item, instead of selecting the item for a statement or item, you end up opening Wikidata. It has ripple effects for using tools like AC/DC on mobile or a tablet: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help_talk:Gadget-ACDC#Bug_on_Android_tablet_and_mobile

@Astinson Hello. Just to clarify: this is an issue when attempting to select an entity listed in the autosuggest text box when you start typing?

yeah, so I start typing, and try to select one of the options: but it opens a new tab. I am on Android devices, editing in Chrome, asking for the desktop version of the site so that I can edit the Structured Data -- in particular I would like to be able to do AC/DC while watching tv, while using a tablet :P

Okay. So what I'm guessing is that the functionality implemented for T224604 isn't compatible with Chrome on at least some Android devices (seems to work fine on iOS.). Gonna throw this over to @egardner for further insight.

I faced the same issue and I tested it in different situations. This bug appears only on Android devices, but not on Apple devices. On Android devices (I tested it on several devices) it appears in all browsers (tested Opera, Chrome and built-in browser) in both desktop and mobile versions. So this must be an Android related problem.

and it opens wikidata.

SDC team will consult Android team for next steps.
