Consolidate full-page view caption and attribution UIs

Withdrawn by proposer (too many proposals)

  • Problem: There are three (!) separate pieces of UI that all essentially do the same thing: display caption and attribution information when viewing full-page media content. These are Media Viewer - used on the desktop site, a Media Viewer clone - used on the mobile site, and Kartographer's full-page view - used when viewing maps. A particular problem is the very poor handling of captions by the image and maps viewers on the mobile site.
  • Who would benefit: Readers would get more consistent experiences when viewing media content. Developers wouldn't have to maintain three different designs of wheel.
  • Proposed solution: Merge the two image viewers and adapt the relevant components to the map viewer.
