Getting back an older mobile view
Closed, DeclinedPublicFeature


In MW1.39, the mobile view I get with MFE is not as efficient on my wiki as the old view (which placed the infobox above the article sections rather than floated to the right and possibly parallel).

The best solution to my problem would be to have a simple switch or some js code (I guess) that would allow reversion to a previous view.

The problem may be easily understood when viewing the following article in Mobile view. (In Mobile view, the audio player gets truncated on the right, and the Lyrics table gets compressed to an unacceptable extent.)

This solution gives users greater flexibility while providing mobile features.

Hi @Abhidevananda, thanks for taking the time to report this and welcome to Wikimedia Phabricator! For future reference, please fill in the sections in the feature request template. Thanks.

What is "the following article in Mobile view"?

@Aklapper Woops! [blush] On my wiki, there are over 2500 examples, but I did intend to give one. Please have a look at:

Thanks! Using the infobox is on the very top for viewports up to 719px width.
If you would like to change the behavior you are free to customize your local code.

@Aklapper Thanks, that would be an excellent solution for me. Could you please point me to the code file where the 719px width maximum for an infobox at the top is set. I could then change that maximum width to an amount much larger, e.g. 3000px, and that would resolve my problem.
