Display links to sister projects on mobile

  • Problem: When you view a Wikipedia article on mobile, the links to Commons and the other sister projects that appear in the sidebar are not visible in the mobile interface. This means that the links have to be manually displayed within the article (using en:Template:Commons category and the like), rather than using MediaWiki/Wikidata sitelinks.
  • Proposed solution: Display the links in a similar way to how the interlanguage links are displayed
  • Who would benefit: Readers using the mobile interface who want to access content from Wikipedia's sister projects
  • More comments: This was proposed on Phabricator, but was declined "as part of backlog upkeep". It is a critical issue for raising visibility of the sister projects on the mobile interface.
