User Interface

  • Formatting and Style Sheet Issues
    • Increase size of Search, Forums, Developers links to same size as size
    • <pre> font size needs to be reduced (all browsers)
    • Small issue with Gallery skin and recent changes page: Media:Themeproblem.png --Andy 15:18, 30 September 2005 (PDT)
    • Move login and account links to upper right corner of banner (IE 6)
    • The toolbox is missing its bottom border on some pages (confirmed with Firefox 1.0.2 and Mozilla 1.7.5)
  • Add Donate to Gallery and icons to footer
  • Format Main Page menus - Consider menus on
  • After UI has been tested, set all codex user accounts to default to gallery skin. Need to determine how to do this since it appears that user preferences, including skins, are stored in a blob data type.

User:Sy Ali adds:

  • If indeed all wiki documentation is released under the GNU GPL, then MediaWiki supports a footer which states this. It is customisable in LocalSettings.php
  • Customise MediaWiki:Sidebar (the left-hand navigation) See my sidebar for an example. Ask me if you need help.
  • Accesskeys are missing from the main skin, which is why I switched back to Monobook. I believe that copying the contents of MediaWiki:Monobook.js to MediaWiki:Gallery.js will resolve this



There is a slight difference. Type "Main Page" in the search box and hit "Go," and you go directly to the main page. Hit "Search" and the term "Main Page" is searched for on all pages. "Go" is synonymous with "Search" when there is no page named exactly what the user typed in the search field. I don't find "Search" all that useful when there is a page named exactly what the user typed, but there could be some obscure instance where you would want to search for a term, even if there were a page named exactly what you were searching for. --Alindeman 05:13, 12 September 2005 (PDT)
Perhaps we need a customization section as well as a how to user guide section.
  • Need a general "requires this version of Gallery" type tag so that we can express the kind of limitation found on Gallery2:How_to_use_less_CPU. --Bharat 12:19, 10 November 2005 (PST)
  • All how-to pages should have a back-link to the main how-to page so that we can give the user a link directly to one how-to and they can find their way back to all of them. --Bharat 16:30, 12 November 2005 (PST)
  • The codex footer has an old url for "about" (goes through a redirect) and the "disclaimer" link goes to NO content. --Mindless 10:25, 7 April 2006 (PDT)
  • Documentation Team has a bad link for GNU GPL. --Mindless 14:17, 16 April 2006 (PDT)
