Add 'more' button at end of watch list feed, to look further in history
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Currently the items in the watch list are limited to a certain amount. If you get to the end, you are done. For more experienced users with bigger watch lists, the initial view often covers just minutes or an hour.

Not really sufficient. This is aggravated by the behavior due to bug 68367

How can I reproduce it? I have 57 items on my watchlist, and all of them show up. How many items should I add before some of them don't show up?

According to code 50 should be enough.
const LIMIT = 50; // Performance-safe value with PageImages

Try dropping that to 1 or 2 and see what happens

Remember, that, if you click the "Watchlist" link in left navigation, you normally ends up in Special:EditWatchlist, which uses SpecialEditWatchlist's getWatchlistInfo(), which has no limit. If you want to see the mobile related code, click to "modified" to go to Special:Watchlist, which is (in mobile view) implemented in SpecialMobileWatchlist, which has a (working) limit of 50 rows :)

May.... According to it could either be neutral or progressive (since it takes you to more results). What do you think?

I think progressive.

I think neutral is better as progressive, it's not really a workflow where a next step can be reached :)

(To facilitate discussion while on desktop, the mobile watchlist currently looks like this. I understand it's hardcoded to 50 entries.)

Agree that this would be great to have. This is one of the issues that currently severely reduce the mobile web interface's usefulness for curation activities. As an editor who often does this kind of work work and has accumulated a rather large watchlist, I check it like once a day or once every few days, and try to check changes back to the time of my last visit. But right now, the mobile watchlist on enwiki only goes back 1 hour and 6 minutes for me. On desktop, I can view changes from the last 30 days if I want to.

I talked about this a while ago with @JKatzWMF (and before that with other members of the Mobile Web team), and there was a sense that infinite scrolling might be an elegant solution - but a "more" button or some "Show last x hours / y days" like on desktop would solve the issue too.

Patches greatly welcomed here. We want this it's just a case of not having time.

There's infinite scrolling on the mobile watchlist now, so this shouldn't be a problem. When getting to the end of the list it should automatically load the next page of results.
