Description

Background

Current prototype discards existing story pages created using Wikipedia if you select commons to create a story page. As an improvement, we should allow to create a story using both(Wikipedia and Commons). This ticket also proposes some improvements related to story pages.

Design details
  • Provide a message and disable image selection when users try selecting more than 10 images using commons flow. Message disappears after five seconds.

  • Create a maximum of 10 story pages if users decide to select images from commons without creating empty pages.
  • Don't remove empty story pages when users decide to create them in bulk and fill them afterward.
Existing behaviour
  • Don't remove earlier created story pages when users decide to create a story by combining Wikipedia and Commons.

Event Timeline

If I understand this video correctly, if I select ONE image from commons it get added to the currently selected frame. What if I select several images? Does it create more frames? What if it goes over the max number of allowed frames in a story? What if the currently selected frame is in the middle of a story, does it override the frames to the right? Do we want to disable multi selection entirely?

@SBisson I think I have address all these points except the override part, I think for that I am thinking of something like this, please let me know your thoughts on this.

  • Override frames to the right if the selected frame is in the middle but at any point don't exceed total story pages more than 10.
