Special:GlobalRenameRequest button is too small
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In French, the globalrenamerequest-submit-text message is “Demander un changement de nom” (I cannot find a shorter version without loosing information), which is too long for the input where it is included.

Seen on; same issue exists for (at least) Spanish and German.

Looks like an issue with MediaWiki UI rather than CA itself.

The input fields on the screenshot and the ones on the link look different. The one in the screenshot seem to have the mw-ui-input class applied.

The issue is happening because VForm adds the mw-ui-big class on the submit form. The text fits properly once its removed.

Another option is to not use VForm and build a normal HTMLForm. But that would make it way too wide.

I think the best option would be to setId on the HTMLForm and set the width from a CSS within the extension.

No longer a problem with the new design per T104299:

(Argh, that screenshot is actually misleading, I've only now noticed that the text of the message has been changed. But either way, the new button will just get wider to accommodate the text.)

...and the screenshots in the description and my comment make it even more misleading :(
