  • Problem: our readers, who now read mainly Wikipedia with the mobile version, don't have easy access to the interproject links (sister project links?) of an article.
  • Who would benefit: more than half of the readers.
  • Proposed solution: give readers the opportunity to display interproject links such as interlanguage links.
  • More comments: on frwiki, we used the template Autres projets to display interproject links before Mediawiki takes care of them. Today, it still exists principally because the functionality is missing on mobile. Some contributors find that the template pollutes the footer of the articles and would like to delete it, which is not possible without impacting the readers' experience on the mobile version.

Discussion[edit]

  • I'm fairly certain inter-language links can already be accessed in mobile. I could be wrong. --Izno (talk) 00:34, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
    Izno : interlanguage links yes (enwiki, dewiki, ruwiki, etc.), but not interproject links (Commons, Wiktionary, etc.). Lofhi (talk) 08:03, 9 November 2018 (UTC)
  • @Lofhi: This is unlikely to be in the top ten, but your wish is already being developed as part of overhaul of mobile editing. –Ammarpad (talk) 05:51, 19 November 2018 (UTC)
    Ammarpad : I think the functionality may be too discreet, but it's better than nothing! Thanks for the info. Lofhi (talk) 18:05, 19 November 2018 (UTC)
