(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.
