Specify alternative home page for mobiles
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: ian2

My desktop MW 1.23.5 shows a particular home page (specified with MediaWiki:Mainpage. I couldn't see the option, but it would be useful to be able to specify:

(A) A different home page for mobiles/tablets. eg. $wgMFMainpage="My Mobile Home Page"

(B) A different home page for different mobiles and tablets (ie. based on screen size)

While I was considering this in relation to Extension:MobileFrontend, I can see no reason why MW itself could not offer this, as people can use in on smartphones and tablets with MobileFrontend.

There are various problems with serving different content on the same URL.

This would be better done as a server configuration change e.g. redirecting / to home page of choice.
