It is on my Android phone as an app, downloaded from the Google App Store.
I have no way of telling whether the problem is with the app or with the mobile front end.
I see you've added this task to Triage for the Android app. Thanks.

- It's on the Google Play Store as Wikipedia Beta https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.wikipedia.beta. You may need an Android phone (see bug report) to get the right one and replicate this test.
- Install it.
- Open it.
- In the app, go to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Thnidu/sandbox#T173098_test . You'll see the successful edits I just made there. (I kept reiterating to check the details of each step.) As I type this reply in gmail on my laptop, I see it here but not on my mobile. Of course this should replicate on any page, but this seems to be the right place!
- Make an edit of your own.
- Hit *Next*. You will see the effect of the edit that you just made.
- Optionally, choose an edit summary box.
- Hit *Publish.* On the Android the section will look unchanged.
- Open it in your browser of choice. (I use Firefox. Same result in Chrome.) You'll see the effect of the edit.
- Open the page on a... stable? (What do we generically call a device that's *not* mobile?) You will see the change in effect.
- Back to the Android. Click the tab-history icon: the "page" icon in the header bar with a number in it, up to "9+"; it's 2nd from the right, next to the vertical-three-dots menu. You'll see the tab history laid out vertically. The bottom tab will be the most recent one; close it by clicking the X.
- Reopen the page. *Now* you will see the edit in effect.

I forgot the attachment. Desktop view on my phone, in Firefox.
Firefox 54.0.1 with 2.3 GB of memory. I don't have the others on my phone.
But only in the mobile view. Here's the desktop view on my phone.
This (attached) is what I see there now.

Yes, that's what I mean. You can see the effect twice on 83d40m's talk page:
First in § "File permission problem with File:Map Seagate campus 83d40m University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee.jpg"
then on the section on capitalization in the article on Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, when I deliberately tested the effect. The user whose talk page this is, 83d40m, thought that I had caused the problem … Well, those details are irrelevant; you can find them in that last-named section.

Not me. As I said, I'm no developer and have no idea what any of this is or
what it does,.
Sep 19 2016
Sorry, I'd like to but I'm no phab coder.
Aug 10 2016
This has been sitting in the queue for 10 months now, apparently at lowest priority. I'm not a developer, so I'm not familiar with procedures here. Is there any prospect of it ever getting dealt with?
Jun 9 2016
Thanks, that's certainly more accurate.
May 26 2016
@Dbrant Thanks, that did the trick. No surprise that the dating had caught up in the last two weeks, so I made some small copyedits and tried your suggestion. 👍
May 16 2016
The WPβ display on my Android still doesn't show any changes since March 1, either in the History or on the article page, and unlike Firefox there's no way to refresh/reload the page, at least none that I can find. This is no longer a "slight" delay.

Yes, I only just saw the notice. I've corrected or deleted my "I wasn't
These collections were on my talk page. I used them to monitor specific subsets of my watchlist: contributions, and Philadelphia-related. Why were only "owners" of public lists warned?

And I'm glad that with your help I got the procedure right. :-)
Thanks!... And I just tested it out and I can no longer reproduce it. Maybe
some other fix fixed it – no way for me to know. So… To close it. I just
added a comment to that effect, marked it Resolved, and closed it.
And now I am unable to reproduce it under the same conditions that brought it on before, so I'm going to mark it Resolved.

Gladly, except I don't know what project to use. I use and edit WP, but I'm
not a coder or a software engineer, and I have NFI* which of
Beta-Cluster-reproducible, Beta-Feature, *and *BetaFeatures* to use... if
any! The structure of phabricator and the projects is not at all obvious to
one who just wants to report a bug.

Thanks for the explanation in layman's language.

@Krenair, that sure is good news. I'll watch for the next edit conflict and report back, whichever way it goes.
@Krenair, glad to kvetch constructively!! ;-)
Dec 22 2015
@bmansurov, I just saw this now. The screenshot for "User who doesn't have a user page (viewed by another user)" has a line "Create this page" that looks like a link. Link or no link, surely that doesn't belong on a page seen by another user.

Glad I could. Sorry I didn't notice the improvement earlier!
No, the problem is no longer there for me. This can be closed.
It was en. I'll go see if the problem is still there for me.

OHHH yeah. I think that's the page that I tried to log in on.

@Luke081515, looks good to me!
Belt and suspenders, BOTH!
Now that is clear! :-)
@Jdlrobson Thank you! I just saw the new bug report and the discussion already going on there. I'm very glad this is being handled.

I just installed (presumably the latest) Chrome on my Android phone, and the results are intermediate. On my mobile talk page https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Thnidu I see the pencil and the star, but not the "Add discussion" block:
Given this lack of information and lack of communication, it would seem like an obvious idea to put up a big warning on that page, something like THIS SITE IS NOT SECURE. DO NOT USE ANY IMPORTANT PASSWORDS ON IT.
Krenair, I apologize to you. It was Jdlrobson who asked me
Do you have same issue on:
Do you have same issue on:
Can you check in a private window (without being logged in) if you see the same issue?
My initial report was about web, on smartphone.
Then I tried the app and got a different result per my last report (Fri, Oct 2, 3:23 AM): pencil visible and working, but no watchlist star.
Further data: My earlier reports were all using Firefox 41.0. I just tried
the Wikipedia Beta app: it DOES show the pencil icon and allows editing
with it. The watchlist star is absent, though.
Not just the pencil: The blue block that's normally at the top of the page
and takes an extra second or two to appear -- "Add discussion" -- isn't
there either. Neither is the watchlist star. Attached: screenshot of my
mobile talk page.

Oops, I based that description on the page Ursula K. Le Guin bibliography, not Catwings. But the principle's the same.
I don't remember precisely, but it was something like this: The first two
categories on the desktop page are
'''Bibliographies by writer''' and '''Ursula K. Le Guin'''. In Mobile Beta
they were showing up as roughly '''Bibliogra...''' and '''Ursula K....'''

Yes, this would definitely solve T93551.

:-( Oh, well, at least I know it's being worked on, or at least thought about. Thanks for the update.

I see the talk page button at the foot of the article page (any article page). You mean the condensed version of the talk page, which assumes that clicking on a section title means you want to add a comment to that section? It's better than nothing, but the T97581 solution would be a lot better.

Has anyone considered treating the TOC somewhat like a section?
- initially visible but collapsed: v Table of Contents
- User able to expand and contract it at will
- when expanded, showing all levels of headers
- when user taps the TOC entry for a sub§, that sub§ gets expanded if it isn't already,
- presumably along with all its ancestors,
- but other §§ not in the path, including its sisters and its cousins and its aunts, do not.
When it gets to working right, are all the headers visible? Or only the top level (h2)? And I'm on a cellphone, not a tablet. Teeny screen.
@Jdlrobson: What is the expected behavior on first visiting a page? If the TOC doesn't appear till the user has
No, I haven't had this problem lately.
Apr 10 2015
Indeed, I don't see the problem either now. I don't know what changed.

To reproduce it accurately, you might need to have the same kind of device I do:
Samsung Verizon Android Galaxy S-3, SCH-I535
- and for all I know, the fault, dear Brutus, is not in our frontend, but in Mozilla or in the Android.
Yikes! I'm used to using a row of greater-thans to indicate the start of a long quote and a row of less-thans for the end of it, but Phabricator's markup seems to have interpreted them some other way. Sorry!
Feb 14 2015
Not always triplicate. I don't know what determines the difference.

Why this seaction doesn't had an edit pencil is the other question :/
Thanks! I should have tried with other Talk user:... pages; it didn't occur to me that this user's page might have an individual problem.
Dec 5 2014
I don't know how that happened.
I am very sorry for wasting your time.
