Item layout is a bit inconsistent when there are no statements and "other languages" is collapsed
Closed, ResolvedPublic


no statements and everything collapsed.

"other languages" expanded.

for example, on beta:

I saw the collapsed version on beta and have been thinking it was a bug and would be fixed when we deployed a more current build there. But now realize this inconsistency is also on master.

It feels a bit weird to me that everything jumps position and the width of the layout decreases so much, simply with togging "other languages".

I am not sure what the intended behavior and design is?

I think some sort of simple, responsive grid should be applied within wikibase-entityview, maybe based on percentage width and a min-width for wikibase-entityview-main?

when trying this, it appears to work consistently with my browser (chrome + firefox) at various sizes

More consistent layout w/ collapsed "other languages" and no statements


This only happens on "empty" Entity pages. Not sure why this should be a blocker. The problem was in discussion before between Adrian and me with me considering it a Wont-Fix. The problem is supposed to resolve as soon as the Statement section's layout is reimplemented / the side bar sticking to the side. The changes applied in the linked patch set appear to be sort of random as there probably is no proper solution at the moment due to the layout being in some kind of mixed state. I myself was unable to come up with a good solution back then when updating the header section layout. As written before: With resolving the mixed layout state, the issue will vanish. Eventually, I will not take the responsibility to merge the work-around as I do not see that much of an issue here that should be worked-around with even more strange CSS that we already have. :-/

We can not roll out with this issue unsolved. There are still too many items where this would be an issue and get us a lot of flack on rollout unfortunately.
