Okay, so in three-column mode you need to scroll on the sidebars. The content cannot be scrolled on. Also it scrolls horizontally really far for some reason.

Isarra added a comment to T161953: Incorporate WoOgLeShades global navigation design into Timeless.

Awesome. Let's consolidate the non-sidebar stuff! A probably header one, a probably footer one, anything else? I'm thinking those two will be the most common - header for global stuff, footer for, well, extra footer stuff. Possibly also global, but we don't actually care HOW folks use them as long as it serves the likely cases in some way...?

Restricted Application added a project to T181142: Notification numbers always grey in other skins - red/blue highlighting for new items only works in vector/monobook: Growth-Team.

Apparently not really a problem with timeless; the echo notification number colours were only implemented for monobook/vector and simply do not appear in any other skins.

Isarra added a comment to T65459: Allow configuration of the Minerva menu.

...may also want to add a config variable so third party sites can just throw in their sidebar instead of having an entirely separate menu.

Isarra added a comment to T65459: Allow configuration of the Minerva menu.

I recommend looking into what BlueSky does, both for icons and customisability. Essentially you probably want to create a second navigation interface message structured like the sidebar with an extra |item for icon specifying, with a parser that functions similarly to a simplified version of the sidebar parser that outputs a standard portlet/set of portlets. This approach allows for onwiki customisation both for the rendered html (editing the mediawiki namespace interface message) and js overrides using the standard addportletlink etc functions, which work with pretty much anything following the expected structure.

Isarra added a comment to T197852: Don't sort categories alphabetically.

Off the top of my head the only reason I can think of why they'd be sorted alphabetically to begin with (because as you say, the on-page order is indeed more logical) is probably because they're actually being pulled straight from the database or something similarly idiotic because there's just no built-in way to get them... not entirely pre-rendered as html? Even so, if it normally gets them in the proper order, there must be some way to replicate the behaviour...

Isarra added a comment to T197522: Subsection/section distinction should be clearer.

Other issue: using serifs for all can be a bit jarring for users if they are used to vector, as that only uses serifs on headers with an underline.

Jun 17 2018, 8:48 PM · Timeless
Isarra added a comment to T197522: Subsection/section distinction should be clearer.

Possibilities:

  • add underline to h3, but smaller than h2/h1
  • lose serifs for h3-h6 or h4-h6

Isarra added a comment to T196721: Make non-responsive Monobook the default for German-language Wikipedia.

If you are so eager to have this feature that after the first rushed deployment you do another one without proper investigation of all issues, waiting for the translation, and proper communication of the opt-out setting, so be it. That's not what I think of as good practice in our volunteer-driven ecosystem.
