Mobile menu no JS fallback (alpha)
Closed, ResolvedPublic2 Estimated Story Points


As a user on a device that doesn't support JavaScript, I want to be taken to an obvious search box with a search button when I tap on the header, so I can still search Wikipedia.

If Javascript is not enabled, tapping the search icon in the top header takes the user to this page, with no-js search field and menu items.

@KHammerstein, were you going to upload a new mock (with a bigger button) here?

@KHammerstein, thanks. Shouldn't the first search icon be a back icon?

@bmansurov my bad! Updated again

@KHammerstein, forgot to ask. Didn't we agree that the icon would look similar to the 'Add discussion' icon below (so that it's easier to tap on)?

@bmansurov Good point, but we decided to go with the smaller button because the larger wouldn't look connected to the search field.

@KHammerstein, ok thanks. Also, do you think I should use the new mw-ui-input design [1] (where there is no left border) or should I use your design (which I think is the old design - sorry, if it's not the case).


@bmansurov Oh yes, use the new input design, I'll update again. Thanks for clarifying all these details!
