Um forsíðan (heimasíðan) á tínari Wikimedia verkætlan ikki er blivið tilpassa til at blíva víst á mobilum skermum, og tú ert ein administrator á tí verkætlanini, vinarliga fylg so vegleiðingunum niðanfyri.

Skjótt verða allar Wikimedia verkætlanir vístar sum standard vísing í mobilum sýningum á far-tóleindum (uttan á teldlum / tablets), hygg at tilmæld tíðarlinja. Um heimasíðan er er blivin tilpassa til mobila sýning, so síggja brúkarar við mobilum tóleindum onki innihald. Tí er tað týdningarmikið at velja innihald frá skrivaraborð versjónini av heimasíðuni, sum vil vera passandi til ta mobilu sýningina.

Vinarliga legg til merkis: Tú mást hava administrator rættindi fyri at sleppa at rætta á heimasíðuni.

Stig 1[edit]

Fyrst av øllum skal tú avgera hvat fyri nakað innihald er passandi til tína far-heimasíðu.

Evaluate the page elements in the desktop version (e.g. "Picture of the Day") by asking:

  • hvussu væl dámd eru tey?
  • verða tey dagførd regluliga?
  • passa tey væl til skjóta lesing?
  • fara tey at passa væl í ein mobil skerm?

Tá tú hevur avgjørt hvørji elementir geva meining, far so víðari til Stig 2.

Stig 2[edit]

You must be logged in and have administrative rights to do the following. On the desktop view of the homepage, click Edit and find the elements you want to include in the mobile view.

Each element you want included in the mobile Main Page must be identified with an id="mf-..." attribute (where "..." is a unique name; use something human readable please). You may call these "mf selectors". One way to do this is to put a div tag around the element you want and put the "mf selector" within the div tag, like so:

<div id="mf-ABC"> ... </div>

Please note: the letters ABC should be replaced with a title that is unique.

What goes in between the opening and closing div tags? It will most likely be a template for the page element, such as "Picture of the Day". The id of the selector can be whatever you choose, but they should be unique and descriptive.

If the element to include is a wiki table, you may put the "mf selector" (id="mf-...") within the table's attributes spot. That works, too.

Click "Save page".

(Please note that there are older mobile selectors in the format "mp-ABC," which were adopted by a number of sites in the past. Those will continue to work, but for new formatting, the mf selectors are recommended.)

You are almost done.

Stig 3[edit]

Now go to the mobile URL, which is typically If your project doesn't have a mobile URL, please contact the mobile team at mobile-feedback-l(_AT_)lists(_DOT_)wikimedia(_DOT_)org. You can reduce the width of your desktop browser to mimic a mobile screen. How does the page look?

If you want to make changes, go back to Step 2. Keep going from Step 2 to Step 3 until you are satisfied.

That's it!

Eitt dømi[edit]

The homepages of each language version of Wikipedia and all of the other Wikimedia projects are diverse, so it is impossible to present an universal example. Nevertheless, to give some idea of how this might look on your site, here is the German version of Wikipedia: If you click on the View source ("Quelltext anzeigen") tab next to "Lesen", you can see the wikitext and using your browser's Find feature, look for the string, "mf-".

In this case, the div tag for the mf selectors are part of larger page objects. Only someone familiar with that project's homepage formatting will understand this in detail.

Now go to: The resulting mobile page will be visible. The sections of content corresponding to the mf selectors are rendered in the mobile view.
