Also there's apparently a problem with the logic above with the caret one (settings) anyway, according to matma rex. So it's possible it's related to why the triangle one (compact selector) wouldn't work anyway?

Apr 18 2017, 6:28 PM · MediaWiki-Interface
Isarra added a comment to T163098: Fix the Watchlist visual layout.

This is an interesting problem. Generally skins don't touch this stuff - the content itself (everything under the firstHeading) is rendered and styled by MediaWiki core - but special pages are predictable, unlike user-created content, and there is some precedent for this already: Special:Preferences is styled only by the skins, and to my knowledge doesn't even have any default core styles (unless this has since been fixed). It could well be worth implementing different handling in different skins for others, too, given reason.

Apr 18 2017, 6:17 PM · MediaWiki-Interface
Isarra added a comment to T65844: h3 should not be more prominent than h2 headings.

Correction: it's actually 'times' instead of 'times new roman', which also results in some variation as not all fonts matching 'times' are consistent either. Times new roman specifically is, but is not what's specified.

Apr 18 2017, 5:49 PM · WMF-Design, Reading-Web-Backlog, Design, Vector
Isarra added a comment to T65844: h3 should not be more prominent than h2 headings.

Rammanojpotla: The issue is caused by the font stack for the h2s having inconsistent metrics with each other (linux libertine and times new roman are similar, but Georgia is much larger), and the 'sans serif' the rest use also resulting in inconsistent metrics depending on the system in question (for english, windows generally winds up with arial and macs with helvetica, which are comparable, but various linux distributions wind up with everything from nimbus sans (also comparable) to dejavu sans (larger)). Across these, linux libertine, times new roman, arial, helvetica, and nimbus sans all work reasonably well together. The issue primarily shows up on linux due to the combination of linux libertine (or times new roman as a fallback), which are small, and dejavu sans, which is much larger, but can also potentially show up on any platform depending on user settings (such as use of dyslexia-friendly fonts).

Isarra added a comment to T162500: Set $wgCiteVisualEditorOtherGroup to true by default, and properly document it.

If it's pointless, it won't be installed. That's not what this is about - this is about the many wikis that do have cite available for use, but do not use citations as a primary editing feature. What I am asking for here is for VE's defaults to be changed to the same defaults of the wikimedia cluster: citation menu in the general insert menu unless told otherwise. $wgCiteVisualEditorOtherGroup = true unless overridden.

Isarra added a comment to T162650: Incompatibility with VisualEditor and CSS.

Honestly we generally don't actually need the special CSS for general editing (it's usually random crap like restyling the TOC or changing the monobook theme or mimicking enwp's crazy templates or something dumb like that, rarely anything that does much to the content itself), so VE might as well just skip over it and edit the page as if it weren't there?

We need this. On any skin with the content actions (page, edit, history, etc) on the same level or below the firstHeading, they all get disabled. Which means that once VE is opened, due to T71406 being nofix, it cannot be closed. The only way to leave editing is to leave the page entirely.
