Search: Disambiguations pages show 'missing image' symbol
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Disambiguation pages however don't generally have images, so we probably shouldn't encourage people to add one. Perhaps we can use an alternative icon in the case of disambiguation pages ? I think that info is in the api nowadays (though not sure if it is available from the search api.

Actually there are some other pages, too, which don't need an image (and have no available option if you navigate to the page), e.g. category pages.

Maybe we can change the placeholder image to use without an "+"? E.g.: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:ImagePlaceholder_icon.svg

Yeah, the placeholder icon in Search shouldn't have the '+' symbol on it. That should be changed to a different icon (for all pages).

Change 145895 had a related patch set uploaded by Florianschmidtwelzow:

I think there should be no placeholder image at all: it made sense for the design that assumed aggressive upload calls to actions, however now that the CTA is gone, placeholder images are going to just add to clutter, so I'd prefer f there was just white space instead of them.

Time to get some feedback from design it sounds like.

Moiz says he's going to send us a new placeholder asset that will be much less prominent than the current one, probably some sort of grayed-out icon. Stay tuned...
