 ◄ Back to Maps  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!


  • Problem: In Wikivoyage, when using the mapframe embedded style map you cannot see your current location. Have to go to desktop version and use the map option created by geo shown as icon top right. Far too many clicks to be used.
  • Who would benefit: Any reader on mobile wanting to see what Points of Interest are nearby.
  • Proposed solution:
  • More comments: This is a functionality any mobile user would expect. Other apps do this. Stops Wikivoyage becoming popular with mobile users, which is the largest group of internet accesses.
  • Phabricator tickets: T208713

Discussion[edit]

  • I have created a phabricator ticket for this request. I myself also have often have had this idea, and I don't think a ticket already existed. —TheDJ (talkcontribs) 10:33, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
  • WikiShootMe can do this; perhaps its code can be reused? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:15, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
