Add space between talk page namespace and page title
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

This task involves the work with introducing a space between the namespace (Talk:) and page title (PAGE NAME) text that appears atop talk pages.[i]

Requirements

Meta

  • Platforms: Mobile + Desktop
  • Skins: all that Usability Improvements are available within. More in T306730.

UX

  • On talk pages where Usability Improvements are enabled and available [ii], the following should be true:
  • There is a space between the namespace (Talk:) and page title (PAGE NAME) text that appears atop talk pages.
    • The "space" mentioned above ought to be implemented in such a way that (read: as a margin, per T299814#7883971) it is not present when people copy and paste the talk page title text in its entirety (Talk: + PAGE NAME).

Open question(s)

  • 1. Editing Engineering: how will we enable wikis to vary the spacing around colons to match the conventions for their language (e.g. French puts spaces on either side of a colon [iii], Chinese uses a colon which has more space on either side of it as well [iv]).

Done

  • Requirements are implemented
  • Answers to all Open questions are documented

i. T299814#7883971 led me to wonder whether this has already been implemented, but I'm not seeing it implemented in the latest patch demo which leads me to think this work still needs to be done.

ii. I'm adding emphasis on "available" here because we decided that Usability Improvements will NOT initially be available across talk namespaces. Instead, we decided to gradually scale them out, beginning with User: and Article: talk. More in T304750.

Good spot, @DLynch. I now see this task as being dependent on T306440, as you mentioned.

I'm making this explicit now.

Usability Improvements will NOT initially be available across talk namespaces. Instead, we decided to gradually scale them out, beginning with User: and Article: talk.

We've also discussed scaling this particular change to all namespaces, for which I have filed T315893
