Coordinates shown wrongly in mobile app
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Reported on dewiki:Vorlage Diskussion:Coordinate:

Coordinates like 51°21′9″N, 9°35′32″E or 51.2708 N, 9.5376 E are shown as 51.27089.5376 in the app.
This affects title and inline coordinates but not coordinates with custom text link (e.g. dewiki:Liste der Stolpersteine in Kassel).

I'm wondering if this is really an app problem? Because I see the very same problem with the default browser on a Nokia N950 - MobileFrontend extension or template issue already? So T91481: Display coordinates in mobile version already happens for me at least on some articles. :)

  1. Go to on an Nokia N950 with its default browser.
  2. See the line 19.419444444444-99.1455555555562310 printed between heading and infobox template.
  3. Same for e.g. or but between infobox header and infobox map instead.

A subtemplate of de:Template:Coordinate was inserting garbage into the page. I have temporarily "fixed" it by hiding the garbage with inline CSS (style="display:none"). The proper fix needs to happen inside the template.

Can anyone confirm that the workaround works? I do not have access to the app.

Entlinkts edit in the Template on did the trick. Coordinates are shown properly now:

Thanks. So IMHO the only potential bug here is that the app does apparently not load MediaWiki:Mobile.css. I don't know if this is intended or not and will therefore leave the task open.

thiemowmde assigned this task to Entlinkt.

I know the problem for years, since the same happens with the PDF export. Entlinkts fix is so obvious, it makes me feel stupid. ;-)
