A better Nearby for Wikivoyage
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Current Nearby is completely useless on WV because it only shows primary coordinates - meaning only one page visible, generally. (For larger cities, there are also subpages about districts, etc but still usefullness is next to zero)

Proposal:

  • For every secondary coordinates tag on page, leave an anchor in HTML.
  • Store this anchor in database, output it in list=geosearch and prop=coordinates.
  • Make Nearby output secondary coordinates. For every secondary coordinate, output coordinate name instead of page name.
  • Upon clicking on a secondary coordinate, jump to the precise anchor point in the page mentioning this POI.
