I would find it helpful to have a coloured feedback, whether contributions have already been viewed, or similar.

Hey @Quant8 can you please explain what screen you are referring to? Thanks

I'm talking about my user contributions list, there I had wished as a newbie to see at the colored marking which of my edits are already sighted and which are not. Greeting Quant8

Quant8 (talkcontribs)

Hello, I now know why my request can not be understood, viewing/sighting (in German: Sichten) is a peculiarity that only the German, Russian and Polish Wikipedia have, the meaning is briefly explained here: Greetings.

Default language shall be an option of setup. On a phone it is very difficult to change language (still do not find the option)

It would be great if the advanced mode would include administrative tools (block, change user rights etc)

I support this. I only use smartphone and as sysop at ptwikinews i can't do too much at the mobile version. @AHollender (WMF) pls see this.

Quando navegamos na wiki pelo computador aparecem as opções no lado esquerdo Colaboração, Ferramentas, Imprimir/exportar é Noutras línguas... Por que não aparece pelo celular? Seria muito útil. Sinto falta.

No access to the "preferences" page

TechAcquisitor (talkcontribs)

Hi! I didn't find any "preferences" button to edit them, using the default mobile theme.

Is a patch planned for this?

AHollender (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hey, can you explain what you are trying to do in more detail? I am not sure that I understand. Thanks.

I would just like to access the same settings on pc as on mobile, which is currently not the case. The "Settings" page does not display the same content as the "Preferences" page.

Translated with DeepL.

AHollender (WMF) (talkcontribs)

That's correct. The "Preferences" page controls the Desktop skins (Vector, Monobook, Timeless, etc.). However the mobile site uses a unique skin (MobileFrontend) so it has a different settings page.

If you need to access the "Preferences" page from your mobile, please scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and in the footer you will see a link called "Desktop". If you click this link you will be viewing the desktop site on your mobile. From there you can go to "Preferences".

TechAcquisitor (talkcontribs)

Do you think an update will fix this problem?

Thanks for your answers, @AHollender (WMF). Wishing you a good start to the evening.

How to create a New article on Mobile Mode

Kasyap (talkcontribs)

Hi Please let me know easy way to create new article in Mobile mode

AHollender (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hey @Kasyap there is no special workflow for creating a new article in "Advanced mode" unfortunately. I think the best workflow would be:

- navigate to the URL of the page you want to create (for example if I wanted to create a page called xyzabc I would navigate to

- use the link that says "Start the _________ article"

I hope that is helpful

Facts707 (talkcontribs)

Hi, I can't seem to get the link you mentioned. I'm a pretty experienced editor, autoconfirmed, logged in, advanced settings on. I've been switching to desktop mode, editing the URL to remove the "m.', then clicking on the redlink to create it (in tiny font).

Oh, I see the problem. If I use the link you provided it works fine, but if I search in Wikipedia I get a url that doesn't display a link, e.g.

which can be edited to change the /w/index.php?search= to

and then removing the &ns0=1 to get

Better than what I was doing, but a button or revised url would be more convenient. :-)

P.S. Thanks everyone for a very valuable tool!
