Show page name in history page title in Minevra
Closed, ResolvedPublicFeature


Feature summary (what you would like to be able to do and where):
Add article title to the page title tag for the mobile history page
(and probably this could also be the case for other special pages in mobile view)

<title>French fries: History - Wikipedia</title>

Use case(s) (list the steps that you performed to discover that problem, and describe the actual underlying problem which you want to solve. Do not describe only a solution):
When I was working on the desktop version, I used the browser history to re-open pages that I had previously viewed. And there were normal page titles:

<title>French fries: Revision history - Wikipedia</title>

But now I use my smartphone all the time. And in mobile browsers (any, the problem is in mobile view) the title in the history is shown like this:

<title>Page history - Wikipedia</title>
I can search for pages in two ways: view the browser history and type “history” in the browser’s URL bar, and here (except for search suggestions) it offers previously opened pages. The problem is that I see a lot of the same lines "Page history - Wikipedia" and can’t figure out what article it was.

Benefits (why should this be implemented?):
In English, you can look at the URL and understand which article it may refer to. But in other languages, the URL is encoded in percent encoding - you see only percentages and cannot even guess what the beginning of the title of the article was.

<title>История — Википедия</title>

ttps:// Служебная:History /Картофель_фри
The same beginning in url:

Page history - Wikipedia
Page history - Wikipedia
Page history - Wikipedia

Therefore, if you add the title as readable text, then many people will be able to read it and history search will work as expected in mobile browsers.
