XanonymusX added a comment to T350515: Last-modified bar in Minerva is hidden on small screens.

Also would like to point out that the mobile history pages (whether with AMC or not) are additionally affected by this change. In e.g. https://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Jonne_J%C3%A4rvel%C3%A4&action=history&useskin=minerva, the Undo button looks very different from the Thank button and especially the Rollback button. Also, the colours indicating flagged versions are not covering 100% width anymore, but only the width of the summary text. And on windows below 1000px, the "talk/contribs" links after the user name get hidden, while the user icon will suddenly show up. It just seems all very broken.

EDIT: And the button to show/hide selected versions (admin only) now causes overflow.

We have now finally added another font before Georgia on dewiki via vector.css (and vector-2022.css), in order to get rid of broken headings. Maybe this problem should be taken into account also for the upcoming typographical changes in Vector 2022 (@ovasileva)?

XanonymusX added a comment to T315893: Add space between page namespace and page title.

No, I disagree but you are wrong too. The words within the page title name indeed should be spelt orthographically. But the colon is not an orthographically colon but a namespace separator within the title database item, and with this it's programming language but not German language with its orthography. In spite of this the page name title is written in the URL without blank or separator, too. Why do we need such differences.

XanonymusX added a comment to T315893: Add space between page namespace and page title.

This has nothing to do with German spelling but with namespace separation. So the blank style is a programming language spelling mistake. I never saw this spelling within any other programming using namespaces.

XanonymusX added a comment to T315893: Add space between page namespace and page title.

At least in German, not using a space after the colon is a spelling mistake, so in principle I would welcome such a change (for all page titles in all non-0 namespaces). The same would go for subpages, where in many instances there would be spaces needed before and after the slash. However, it is unclear whether we really need to enforce spelling rules on page titles outside the main namespace.

As I just noticed it on dewiki: is it intended that the subscribe option is now available for basically all pages outside of ns-0? In my eyes, it only makes sense on talk pages and other meta pages used as talk pages (like eg. this project), but there is no use for it on static meta pages. Most prominently I noticed this on our main page.

XanonymusX added a comment to T317818: [L] [SPIKE] Add configurability options for table of contents.

Exactly, there needs to be an alternative to NOTOC. A suggestion would be a magic word specifically for this use case (NO_INLINE_TOC or something like that). But the template suggestion sounds interesting as well. So you mean that the TOC will be forced to be invisible in the content? It seems a bit hacky, but if we are sure that it won’t break anything, I could introduce such a template on dewiki and replace the NOTOCS in relevant templates/pages.

XanonymusX added a comment to T317818: [L] [SPIKE] Add configurability options for table of contents.

It has been mentioned in other places before, but I don't see it mentioned in this task, so I wanted to point it out once again. There is a specific situation in which both the custom TOC in the article and the normal V22 TOC should be displayed. For example, in this list, the TOC is shown at the beginning of the article through a specific template, but because of the current use of NOTOC, there is no left-side TOC in V22, even though it would be very helpful when scrolling. Similarly, alphabetical lists on dewiki regularly work with such horizontal TOCs. It should be possible to display both a custom TOC and the standard one in V22.

XanonymusX added a comment to T326399: (other edits) links repetitive and long.

Imo, all of this has highlighted underlying problems with the display of tags in the watchlist. I’ll try to summarise them.

  • In the discussion on dewiki, the usefulness of seeing the tags there at all has been questioned, as the tags tend to make single entries on the list unnecessarily long without much added value (except for filtering). For relatively trivial ones like mobile edit, I do understand the concern. This could be addressed with a preference (maybe a tickbox?) to make tags invisible in the watchlist. Otherwise, the proposed solution with mouseover could also be helpful here.
  • On mobile, the “pills” look nice (imo), but they currently have a nowrap. Since the tags can get really long (especially now with the added link), this needs to change, otherwise you get overflow on small screens (my watchlist is broken since this change happened).
  • On desktop, the tags are now put between brackets, which causes the above-mentioned problem with brackets within brackets. Using the same design as on mobile can be a solution, as long as the nowrap problem is addressed.

Oh, and another problem: this leads to parentheses in parentheses, which according to German spelling rules cannot be of the same type. So the inner parentheses would have to be [ ]. Not sure how to change that on our side, I guess a different approach needs to be found.

I was about to file another bug report, but here should be fine. On mobile, the tag markers apparently get a nowrap, which means that now some tags can cause overflow on small screens. I constantly see that now with tags like Bearbeitung von einer mobilen Anwendung (weitere Bearbeitungen) on dewiki. Maybe @Jdlrobson has an idea on how to better deal with these long tags on mobile.

XanonymusX added a comment to T289817: Sticky header: ensure sticky header appears above other sticky elements.

I noticed that the matter isn’t fully resolved in all cases. After repeated requests, I have recently modified the header of the chart tables (like the ones in the Elvis example), in order to make both lines of the header sticky. That means that cells in the first row get top:0, while the cells in the second row get top:2.05em. While this works nicely without the sticky header of Vector-2022, the 2.05em are ignored when the sticky header is visible. The 3.125rem would need to be added to the existing top value, rather than replacing it. Not sure if this is easy to fix, but I wanted to report it.

This is not a mobile issue, but a Minerva issue, as explicated above. So styles would have to use skin selectors, not media queries. But it is very inefficient to further increase the size of those template styles imo, that is exactly the opposite of mobile-friendly. So either the current styles are modified to adapt to Minerva as well or Minerva’s behaviour can be improved.

I can also reproduce it on this page, but not on eg this one. Thus it can’t just be the length of the introduction. Also happens in safemode. I made videos of the behaviour, but it seems I can’t upload them here …

Exactly, thanks for the direct comparison! I really don’t understand what the reason for the new width and the unnecessary margins is. When I had first seen it on the beta cluster, I thought it was just a temporary design problem.

XanonymusX added a comment to T306913: [ToC] add support for long section titles.

Break-all is never a good idea, as that would break words even in the presence of spaces or hyphens. We usually do this with word-break:break-word + word-wrap:break-word, to have all browsers covered, though I think overflow-wrap has also more browser-support now. The alternative is of course text-overflow:ellipsis.

XanonymusX added a comment to T306660: [Goal] Table of contents on narrow screens in vector-2022.

Well, the width of the sidebar is given in rem, as far as I can see, so there must have been a change in that (I compare with the previous state, as I had been testing the new ToC for a while already). I do not use any zoom for my browser window. The random example is from https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalifornischer_Wacholder.

XanonymusX added a comment to T306660: [Goal] Table of contents on narrow screens in vector-2022.

I'm a bit confused as to why the ToC/sidebar has suddenly become so large. The size used in the prototypes seems much more natural on my screen (like https://en-toc.wmcloud.org/wiki/Moon). Now the content of the page is aligned at the right side of the screen, while the sidebar/ToC uses a lot of space on the left, also due to imo unnecessarily large margins. I am aware that the overall design will be improved at the end, but the proportions right now don't seem to make sense to me. And if I make my browser window smaller (which happens automatically whenever I use the browser tools to look at the HTML), in my eyes it is very weird that only the page content but not the sidebar becomes narrow. Also, I think this behaviour interferes with responsive design based on screen width: if I want my templates to react to the available space, I now have to calculate the width of the content instead of the full screen for Vector 2022 (so no more 720px breakpoints).

XanonymusX added a comment to T301429: [Bug] Sticky header doesn't show sometimes.

I am not sure if this is a new bug: whenever I scroll down on this page on dewiki, the sticky header seemingly gets confused by the intro. Starting from the very top, the header first shows when I reach the tabs. Then, in the middle of the first list of the intro (around the item requests for the attention of an administrator, it suddenly vanishes. Only when I reach the first regular section of the page, the header returns. When scrolling upwards, the header does not show at all once I'm above the first section. What is happening here, can others reproduce this (using Chrome, btw)?

XanonymusX added a comment to T273473: [Epic] Improve the table of contents.

Sounds reasonable. However, I feel like most of the reasons for using NOTOC or Compact TOC atm become obsolete once a TOC is permanently shown next to the content. For example, while having a traditional vertical TOC for an alphabetical list is not very helpful and looks terrible, with the new TOC it would make more sense than the compact horizontal one (which is not permanently visible and thus harder to navigate). I wonder whether the behaviour could be improved in that regard.

Phabricator is really just about the specific technical solutions, not so much about programmatic communication about broader projects. As I said, you shouldn't bother about the design too much, it is far from final. The styling changes to new Vector are the final step of the Desktop Improvements project. Besides, I think that the current ToC is very ugly (and the new one is indeed unnecessarily similar to it), but I'm sure everything will get better. The important thing is the functionality.

Ah, I suppose this is the place to comment. (I had posted this on T302046 but this task seems more appropriate) Feedback time!

That left-of-the-article TOC is a horrible nightmare. I absolutely hate it. I would seriously avoid any website that forced it upon me. Can't scroll it out of sight, can't collapse it, can't disable it, takes up too much space, I hate it I hate it I hate it. This was the reason I switched back to Vector classic on beta cluster. (and if Vector classic gets it too I'll switch to Monobook, Timeless or just murder it with a userscript) I'm not much of a fan of Vector 2022 (but it's not a lost cause, just needs work), but this TOC pushed me over the edge.

As a personal note: I rarely use the existing TOC. But I can scroll it out of sight so it doesn't bother me. If the TOC went completely missing tomorrow, I wouldn't miss it. Having this big, (to me) useless thing that contrasts with the main content (it's much darker) permanently in my field of vision greatly annoys me. And because of the fixed position, my banner blindness fails to kick in. This results in pure hatred for something that, on the face it, could seem innocuous.

Another, presumably more serious issue I just noticed: the sticky site header seems to be not active on diff pages, but other sticky elements on the page will nonetheless be moved down and leave a gap the size of the (invisible) sticky site header! See for example when scrolling down this diff. Either the sticky header is activated for diffs as well, or the other sticky elements must be left as they are on diff pages.

I meant jumping back up! As is visible in your video, the [6] remains hidden under the table header (but not under the site header, that's why I thought that maybe there could be a solution for the overall problem).

XanonymusX added a comment to T289817: Sticky header: ensure sticky header appears above other sticky elements.

I have noticed one issue: if I want to jump to one of the references from the footnotes, the position I jump to is below the sticky header, but not below the other sticky elements. Example: try to jump to reference 6 in the Elvis discography; it will be hidden under the sticky table header. Now, this problem is of course already present on these pages even without the sticky site header, but I was wondering if this could be fixed since it can be done for the sticky site header (I guess the unpredictability of the height of such elements makes a solution difficult though).

XanonymusX added a comment to T289814: Sticky header: Add article title to sticky header.

Well, the use of the <wbr> tags is part of the dewiki guide on how to use DISPLAYTITLE. There have been discussions about it in the past, but apparently this has shown to be the most efficient solution so far. Even more extreme example: Lopadotemachoselachogaleokranioleipsanodrimhypotrimmatosilphiokarabomelitokatakechymenokichlepikossyphophattoperisteralektryonoptokephalliokinklopeleiolagoosiraiobaphetraganopterygon. What you are proposing is what the mobile version is doing, right? Of course that could be used for all skins, so manual solutions wouldn't be needed anymore. Or, if we were to go for a new technical solution, imo soft hyphens would need to be allowed in DISPLAYTITLE, just breaking the title at random positions should generally be avoided (see T66528).

XanonymusX added a comment to T289814: Sticky header: Add article title to sticky header.

Two considerations:

  • It is not obvious why the title has to be faded out at exactly that width; it leaves quite a lot of whitespace in the header on my screen, too much for my taste. I would have suggested to only fade titles out whenever they get too close to the icons. But I guess that could be looked at again when the header gets its final form.
  • The title behaves unexpectedly in this dewiki article. I imagine it has to do with the <wbr> tags. Should I file this bug as a new task or does it still fall within the scope of this one?

Today I found another broken MobileDiff: https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spezial:Mobiler_Unterschied/219031629 The inserted part overflows on smaller screens (both in Chrome and in Safari) because of the long IPv6. Word-breaks are apparently not applied. I am not sure if this is still related to the fixes from this task, in any case there should be word-breaks for long lines. I have been able to fix it for myself by adding .diff td div { word-break: break-word; } to my common.css, which I find confusing, as this used to be a mere Chrome fix and shouldn't have been necessary at all; but now it works for both Chrome and Safari. Any ideas?

Last time I checked, all over MediaWiki word-wrap:break-word was always used together with word-break:break-word.
