Revisit the order in which "Add topic" and "Add languages" buttons appear in sticky header
Closed, DuplicatePublic


T267444 introduced changes to where and how the Add topic button appears on talk pages.

T304187 added the Add topic button to the sticky header the Vector (2022) skin introduced.

...this task involves the work with deciding whether the "Add topic" and "Add languages" buttons should appear within the sticky header in the same order they appear within the "body" of the page.

@Edtadros noticed the inconsistency this ticket is intended to potentially resolve in T267444#8658840.

Looks good. One minor thing is that you left out the language selector + new topic in sticky header case, which actually already exists, but the buttons are just the other way round. I think you should align the third mockup with this, as it’d be confusing if the buttons switched place when one starts to scroll down.

Actually I noticed this inconsistency first, back in August last year… And my opinion hasn’t changed since then.
