[EPIC] New Table of Contents Overlay accessed from Sticky Footer
Closed, DeclinedPublic



Problem 1

The existing table of contents has various problems.

  • It does not work on browsers which do not run JavaScript e.g. Android 2.
  • It does not show for mobile devices. It only shows for tablet devices.
  • As @phuedx points out the existing table of contents will show a lot of whitespace at the bottom of the section, rather than a visual indication that the TOC is there but momentarily disabled
  • In tablet on articles with long infoboxes it can be hard to see (see figure 1)

Problem 2

The secondary actions which currently features the talk and categories buttons feels like it is becoming a bit of a dumping ground
To access them the user must also scroll to the bottom of the page.

Figure 1

Design (probably outdated)



In the footer include an icon for table of contents. Tapping the icon will open table of contents in an overlay.
