This fix does not apply to all Skins because different Skins use different element IDs.

Margin of diaries included in main pages, especially on mobile Wontfux.png Not Fixed This might be a consequence of collapsibles not working on mobile anymore.
Title of infoboxes are right aligned on mobile Wontfux.png Not Fixed This seems to happen in Minerva Neue Skin only. Can be fixed by forcing the title to be center-aligned.
Random images on the Main Page is different on mobile view and on desktop view Wontfux.png Under observation Could be a false alarm. Needs to be observed closely.
Issues that can be easily fixed by users and does not depend on any of the issues above
Guidelines' content is not up to date anymore obviously Wontfux.png Not Fixed
{{Floatable index}} is transparent on mobile which reduces readabilty Fixed.png Partially Fixed Same background color as {{Top}} was added, let's see how it goes for everyone.

Detailed Notes on each Known Issue

Editing on mobile is limited to per section editing

  • Current status: Notey.png Reported to devs
  • Current solution: Report to devs
  • This seems to be a Minerva Neue issue. See this discussion for more info.

No edit option on the Main page

  • Current status: Notey.png Reported to devs
  • This is likely a Minerva Neue Skin and MobileFrontEnd (if we have it) issue. See [1] for possible solution.

Moving pages is disabled for Users

  • Current status: Notey.png Reported to devs
  • Users used to be able to move pages before the update. After this update, this user right seems to have been removed. Checking the Special:ListGroupRights, it looks like only moders have this right.

Diff pages on mobile view shows duplicate lines

  • Current status: Notey.png Reported to devs
  • This issue is only present in the Minerva Neue skin on mobile view. Please see this screenshot.

Duplicate copyright section of the footer

  • Current status: Notey.png Reported to devs
  • This issue is only present in the Minerva Neue skin when changing to desktop view while the user is using a phone/mobile. It does not happen on PC/laptop. Please see [this screenshot].

Using Visual Editor on List of Monsters and List of Artifacts causes an error

  • Current status: Notey.png Reported to devs
  • This is a Visual Editor issue. Not sure yet what causes this since the other Lists and the Omnibus do not encounter this error. but it is likely that the error is caused by the two pages (List of Monsters and List of Artifacts) containing huge amounts of data on tables. The other pages mentioned do contain huge amounts of data and huge amounts of tables but not at the same time. There is probably a threshold on how much Visual Editor or the Parsoid/RESTBase server can handle. Please see this screenshot.
  • Possible solutions: [2] [3], [4].

{{Top}} To the bottom does not work on mobile

  • Current status: Fixed.png Partially Fixed, Notey.png Reported to devs
  • Current solution: id = "footer" does not exist on Minerva Neue (default skin for mobile) so To the bottom link is anchored to the privacy link (id = "footer-places-privacy") instead since it's the only bottom-most element that appears on both Minerva Neue and Vector (default skin for desktop) and it has an id.
  • The current solution does not apply to all Skins because different Skins use different element IDs. Monobook, for example, does not have id = "footer-places-privacy" but it has id = "footer". And wptouch does not have any footers at all.
  • Proposed alternative solution: Go through all pages that transclude {{Top}} and add a manual anchor ({{anchor|bottom}}) at the bottom of each page and link To the bottom to that anchor instead. (Note: This might be an additional one-time project for the community to do.)
  • Proposed additional solution: Remove Monobook and wptouch from Skins list if users do not use them. Most users are likely using whatever the default Skins are. (Note: Need confirmation from users.)

Collapsibles not working on mobile

  • Current status: Notey.png Reported to devs
  • This issue stems from the Minerva Neue skin not having mw-collapsible and mw-collapsible-content built into the code.

Margin of diaries included in main pages, especially on mobile

  • Current status: Wontfux.png Not Fixed
  • This issues might be caused by collapsibles not working on Minerva Neue, causing huge amounts of extra white space at the top part of diary entries.
  • Proposed solution: Remove collapsibles from diary entries on Main Page.

Title of infoboxes are right aligned on mobile

  • Current status: Wontfux.png Not Fixed
  • Proposed solution: Can be fixed by adding | titlestyle = text-align: center; to {{Infobox}} to force the title to center. See Zoombie's user page for an example.
  • This seems to be an issue on the Minerva Neue Skin but can be fixed from the user side.

Random images on the Main Page is different on mobile view and on desktop view

  • Current status: Wontfux.png Under observation
  • Random Image section shows different images on mobile view and on desktop view. Could be a false alarm.

Guidelines' content is not up to date anymore obviously

  • Current status: Wontfux.png Not Fixed
  • Proposed solution: A one-time rewrite project for the community to contribute on. Need to collect data on what is still useful and needs to be retain vs what is outdated and needs to be removed.

{{Floatable index}} is transparent on mobile which reduces readabilty

  • Current status: Wontfux.png Not Fixed
  • Proposed solution: Add background: white; to the table style in the template.
  • Proposed alternative solution: Rewrite the template to place it at the bottom of the screen and incorporate {{Top}} functionality to it. This is hard to read and the index staying at the right side of the screen covers up some text. Granted, placing it at the bottom of the screen will cover some things but with Minerva Neue having a lot of white space at the bottom of the page, it should only cover footer links when scrolled all the way to the bottom.
