There are different issues that Zebra tried to solve, after the total mess created. One of them was about readability, which is solved with the grey background, separating the menus from the content visually, so people with reading difficulties could read the article easier.

What should be the next step?

Is this ever going to happen, or the changes in Vector have stopped?

I disagree that this is not or shouldn't be in the scope of this project.

As stated in the help page talk (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help_talk:Extension:Phonos), it seems that the usage examples are not working, so the documentation should be changed to reflect what this extension covers and what not. Initially, it was proposed as an IPA rendere (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Wishlist_Survey_2022/Generate_Audio_for_IPA)r, but this is not possible currently. It doesn't read plain text, either.
Jul 6 2023
It doesn't happen all the time, and I don't know which is the reason. Other users have noted it at Basque Wikipedia and also on other Wikipedias. I asked before opening the task.
Jun 10 2023
I disagree. There are 330 wikipedias, and only 180 has something like the English Module:Coordinates... and we can't even know if this is working in the same way. (https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q7348344).

Thanks for the help. After months, now the result is great again!

I checked this (https://eu.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki%3AVector-2022.css&diff=9302812&oldid=9302258) and is not working.

Thanks for the advice on changes. It worked nearly perfect. Do you know what parameter should be changed to get the coordinates before the logos?
Thanks for the solution, @Jdlrobson . It solves partially the problem, as they are loaded and moved wildly. The distance between items is also suboptimal.

Those are two different discussions: one is who will be able to create graphs and how they will be accessed. The other one is if having those is relevant or not. The first discussion is about security, the second one is about product.
Well, it's not true that we are supporting very basic things. In Basque Wikipedia we are showing climate graphs with graph extension. Upgrading to Vega5 would let other interactive features, that is something really needed.
May 21 2023
Good, but this is still broken at Basque Wikipedia, and is not solved with css changes. The design team broke it and should unbreak it.
May 12 2023
This is a really interesting proposal. It could open the way to universal templates and modules! Having the Vega templates centralized is a good way to make things easier for all languages.
May 1 2023
Whatever, if what was working works again. After some months with this broken by a decision from the design team, any advance towards solving it is welcome.

Great! Is there any idea on when will be deployed?
Hello! The Wishlist survey says that this is "in development", but it doesn't seem to be any update in 6 months. Is it really in development? Can it be tested somehow? Thanks.

The secondary problem is that the " button is not very intuitive, as it could be mixed with the idea of a blockquote. References are not rendered as something between "symbols" but between [brackets]. Having the text helps, but yes, "Cite" is shorter than virtually any other language, so a bit more of space should be considered here, and/or change the icon to make it more evident.
Yes, I am using the new skin, but this happened yesterday. I have been using the new skin for two years.
Yes, it is happening, if I reduce the font-size to less than 90% or make the layout full-width, then it appears. Still, there's plenty of space and is not showing (it has showed always and I haven't changed my computer, resolution or screen).
Mar 7 2023
Also notice, please, that Sitenotice and Centralnotice should be full-width, and this is not reflected in the proposal sections.
The problem with the prototype is that the right menu does not behave as we see here. It is narrower because the wide-option selector takes a full column in the right, instead of floating or taking a row in the bottom.
Feb 20 2023
Thanks @alexhollender_WMF, the result is good. I would go even darker, but I think that this is not a topic now.
Feb 19 2023
It seems that this crashes if there's another option below the Contributions section. This affects Growth Team created Mentor dashboard.
Will the Zebra #9 solve the obvious error of the sidebar's overflow scroll? This is pretty ugly now.

@aliu if something is working in version 1.1 and is not working in version 1.2 I think that is not a feature. Anyway, asking for features doesn't work in this platform, as they have exactly the same treatment: closing them or ignoring them.
Is it possible to do this by hand? The current order is completely illogical.
Feb 14 2023
As this bug is in the way to be solved (today is the first day in a whole year where I didn't need to explain where the button is to a class full of students), I would like note how this topic was tried to be abandoned, closed and ridiculized from the start. The only motive for this to be solved is that Vector 2022 was deployed at English Wikipedia and there was great criticism.

Thanks for the update, Alex. I commented that I really liked the Zebra #9, and with the separation for the header it is even better. BUT... I have doubts with the right menu when it collapses. In the current live version, when the right menu is collapsed and the width set at maximum, there's no space in the right (which I personally don't like, but I know lot of people will choose). In the Zebra #9, the right space seems very empty when the right menu is collapsed.

Thanks Aklapper. I add that I checked with my account on Edge and it worked fine, and I also opened a private navigation window in Firefox and worked right. So the problem is really limited. I will see if there's any cookie interacting.
Cannot reproduce in Firefox 109. Which exact Firefox version is this about?

Is it possible to know which are the messages in this menu in Translatewiki? Thanks

Please, note that in the dropdown version there is an icon before the login link/button/option. Is interesting to note that we are using icons inside the dropdown menu and only there.

This is still happening... and taking too long.

Reducing the amount of clicks is the optimal solution. I have said this before, but I explain how Wikipedia works 2/3 times a week to a classroom, and I have to explain always where to login. When we create an account, the login is automatic, so there's no way to learn it if you don't click two times in a random ··· button.
Now that we are discussing this seriously, I leave here an idea to make things better in the right side: T328077. I think that I should note this here, because shades of grey may be relevant to the discussion.
Jan 23 2023
The ticket was created 30 months ago.
@Legoktm could you help me with this at euwiki? Thanks!
Jan 22 2023
Opened again, because of obvious UX errors without answer after 30 months.

Obviously, a huge problem for people with disabilities. And a mess for every daily user.

Today I learnt that this discussion, that was asked to move into Meta, was archived and hidden without even trying to solve it. Sad.

12 days have gone since the previous aknowledgement of the error. It is still happening.

Having something like Create language switcher templates for main page would go a way to starting a conversation about potentially raising the profile of these links, but I provide no guarantees and would probably rate effort spent on that, without discussion with affected communities, as being wasted.
The option to add interwiki links (not only to see them) for categories is gone.
I understand what the purpose is (telling the reader that some pages shouldn't have interwiki links). But... why? Why shouldnt a talk page be linked to another talk page? In which way is this good for our strategy? I would understand that the opposite is the good practice.
This change breaks ALL the interwiki links for, at least, categories: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia, portals (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Current_events) and templates (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Coord).

Thanks @alexhollender_WMF for trying to understand the core of the problem. You are right with the "this is what you want" image, the ORES quality should go in the left, as described there. We have been making some css tricks (some of them are documented in this task) but a stable solution would be the ideal thing here.

The regular thing is to categorize the talk pages itself, instead of the pages.

Ok, I have taken a couple of hours to see if the problem here is that English is not my first language and I'm not communicating exactly where the problem is. It may be the problem, I don't know whether I'm using the best words to describe it. I will try again, from the beginning.
Dec 15 2022
No, it never got solved. And it doesn't seem there's a plan for even talking about that.
Yes, I'm asking the team who broke the design to unbreak it.
This is still happening, making a mess in the right of the articls.
Dec 14 2022
I have asked one of the authors of the Module:NUMBEROF about writing something similar than can lookup for rows and columns: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discussion_utilisateur:Verdy_p#Using_something_like_NUMBEROF_to_query_.tab_data_at_Commons
I wonder... would this work? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Module:NUMBEROF

I have tried to add the graph to calculate Pi using the Montecarlo method to https://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Txantiloi:Graph:Pi_Montecarlo. But it doesn't seem to work because the last version of Vega is not deployed.

Last change (the watchlist star) breaks (again) the alignment of ORES quality prediction at euwiki.

It didn't work for about two hours, but then returned. I thought that this was related to a regression, but who knows.

Just for comment on this: in these last days I have been again showing how Wikipedia works to professors and students at the University. As the sidebar is now hidden, the general view of how Wikipedia works is reduced to the things happening inside the article. No menu is shown, so I have to show it on purpose to teach other features (recent changes, Wikimedia Commons link...) and students need an extra step to figure out what I'm talking about.

For sure, #9 is the best option here, because it makes the ToC way more evident.

Somehow, the solution given to floating elements in the left is broken: T317922
