"More" features disappear from mobile device after enabling Newcomer homepage
Closed, ResolvedPublic


From the mobile version, there used to be a "more" option on the userpage, (the rightmost one on top). After enabling the newcomer homepage, it disappears. It happens only for one's own userpage. While visiting other users' userpages, the "more" option exists.

It happens both for mentors and non-mentors.

Is this in advanced mobile mode?

Is this in advanced mobile mode?

Hi @Tgr, it's the same, whether the advanced mode is activated or not.

@Etonkovidova -- could you please investigate this situation? I feel like there was a compromise we made between the Growth features and Advanced Mobile Contributions, but I don't remember exactly.

"More" menu on User page (and User talk pages) is displayed independently from Advanced mode being on or off. The Advanced mode will add "More" menu to the pages in the article namespace.

  • Enabling Homepage will remove "More" menu from User page - the issue is confirmed.
  • "More" menu on pages in Article namespace is not affected by enabling/disabling Homepage

This comes from T225663 and specifically rEGRE36808d3cec6d: Homepage: Toggle overflow submenu option, which we added to get Minerva to ouptut the user account age tagline and to also ensure that the edit page tabs don't show up on Special:Homepage. But it looks like we can remove the hack added in that patch and the tagline shows up and the edit tabs are not shown, so I guess some things in Minerva have changed since July 2019 :)

Checked in beta - 'More' menu is in place; added to the post-deployment checklist.

Checked on testwiki wmf.26 - 'More' menu is present.
