(diff) & (hist) location on RC/Cont/Watch
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Two things (both related)...

  1. In "Contributions" (HIST) & (diff) : HISTory's parentheses are not part of the

link, in the DIFFerence link, they are.

  1. User Contributions page layout is nicely designed, Recent Changes and Watchlist

should follow suit. Take a look at the following examples, Which is easier to read?

12:34, July 25, 2005 (hist) (diff) m Page Name45634345312 (summary) (top)
12:34, July 25, 2005 (hist) (diff) m Page Name453214 (summary) (top)
12:34, July 25, 2005 (hist) (diff) m Page Name434534502243456354 (summary) (top)

Recent Changes:
12:34 Page Title43783 (diff; hist) . . User Name43484 (Talk) (summary)
12:34 Page Title456434787 (diff; hist) . . User Name4538785238 (Talk) (summary)

Changed the links on Contributions to (diff; hist) in r37872. Didn't address the RC/watchlist display suggestion of putting the diff/hist links before the page title, but that makes a lot of sense.

Reverted that change for now (r37898) given that default and enhanced recent changes do it differently -- the original contribs list style matches that of default recent changes.

Done in r60512.
Swap links of hist & diff location on Special:Contributions for consistency with RC/WL
Now RC/WL incl. enhanced versions and Contributions have the same order of 'diff' and 'hist' links.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
