@ovasileva @RHo here are the first sketches regarding what the top of article would look like after shifting things around to make room for the language button.

alexhollender added a comment to T75299: Indicators (protected icon, featured icon) are not shown in Minerva.

additionally noting that we're currently auditing indicators on desktop (T263511) in preparation for moving the language switcher. Once we've gotten a bit further along we'll have a better sense of which indicators are present on various wikis, and will probably be more opinionated about if/how to show them on mobile.

@alexhollender can you take a look at what's proposed here and highlight any red flags? We'd like to make a start on this move to unlock other conversations with language team. We'd disable it to begin with to allow us to iterate so don't worry if it doesn't feel polished.

alexhollender updated subscribers of T258974: Show different Wikipedia Wordmark based on the language.

In a follow-up task (T262289), we need to load localized SVGs from somewhere, we can't have our own private SVGs bundled with the Wikipedia Preview component for performance reasons. We could load them as assets from any of our server or from commons.

Were you planning on using them in any site or app? If so, maybe we could collaborate on making them available in a place that works for everybody.

Thanks!

alexhollender closed T263950: On wide screens the main text area unexpectedly gets narrower as the window width increases as Invalid.

@MichaelMaggs it seems clear that this issue is related to some kind of configuration within your account, rather than being a general issue. I would suggest reviewing any gadgets you have enabled, also look into global settings. Going to close this out. Sorry we couldn't be more helpful in locating your specific issue.

Sure, happy to do that. Is there somewhere else I can upload the screen capture? It's 40 seconds, and comes out at 114MB which is apparently too big to upload here.

Thanks. People often use this tool and then provide a link to the upload: https://imgur.com/upload

@MichaelMaggs thanks for flagging this. Would you be able to do a video screen capture as you increase and then decrease the width of your browser? For me the width of the column remains consistent (also using Firefox on a Mac). I wonder if there are any user scripts or gadgets you have enabled that could be affecting this?

alexhollender added a comment to T254695: Build a pre-library loading indicator for Vue.js search.

Latest patch from @Jdrewniak fixes the tab overlapping the loading box. I did notice a somewhat interesting state when the viewport is resized to the point that the personal tools drops to the next line. When that happens, the loading indicator overlap the personal tools but that might be the expected/desired behavior (see below)? /cc @alexhollender

I'm assuming that is okay though and signing off

alexhollender added a comment to T261391: Use standard external link icon for external links.

Perhaps a better example to look at since there is more variety in where the icon appears (middle of a line, end of a line, etc.)

@alexhollender - just to make sure I'm following. This is the current behavior:

  • Search that goes directly to the page - search results does NOT appear in the search box
  • Search that goes to the advanced search page - results does appear in the search box

Yes that's correct.

@ovasileva @RHo please see the test results in the description. Nothing surprising here.

was just noticing that it's common for the search term to remain in the search box once the search has been submitted. I think this makes sense for search experiences where search leads you to a list of results. I'm not sure if it still makes sense in our case where you land on a specific result (rather than a list). Thoughts @RHo @Volker_E @ovasileva? I feel like it might help to reinforce what has just happened, though I'm not sure there's an issue with how it currently works.

@Esanders great point about the icon blending in with the text. I wonder if it needs to be blue?

All: some folks on fawiki have shown interest in reading more about the research that is the basis of "narrower reading pane" change. Which paper/book/website would you suggest?

@Jdlrobson I've replaced the Greek tagline SVG in the task description. You should now be good to go to make the final fixes:

  • Thai tagline
  • Greek tagline
