Patch for previewing the new look (3.71 KB, patch)

Description elian 2005-09-01 02:19:24 UTC
Current recentchanges intro wastes a lot of space IMO, these five lines could be
shortened easily.

Current version:
 Below are the last 50 changes in the last 3 days.
 Show last 50 | 100 | 250 | 500 changes in last 1 | 3 | 7 | 14 | 30 days
 Hide minor edits | Show bots | Hide logged in users
 Show new changes starting from 01:51, 1 September 2005
 Namespace: Invert selection 

Proposed version:
 Namespace: Invert selection 
 Last '''50''' | 100 | 250 | 500 changes in last 1 | '''3''' | 7 | 14 | 30 days
(Hide minor edits | Show bots | Hide logged in users)
 Show new changes starting from 01:51, 1 September 2005

Cut to three lines, more logical order (Namespace selection applies first).
Current first line can go entirely if you bold the actual selection.

It's a minor issue but it would be nice if someone finds a moment to implement it.

A smart little idea, I really like it. 

In addition one could also spare one line by removing the "br" from 
MediaWiki:Rclinks in the english default version (that can be watched
live on de.wikipedia).

better: replace the <br /> with a single space

... what should be self-evident, and didn't need a comment.

Patch for previewing the new look

Here's a patch that implements the requests. For some reason it outputs crap
with invalid input. Imho these changes clarify only a very little or not at all
the intro of recent changes.
Comment 5 Daniel Friesen 2008-05-17 16:11:55 UTC
Bolding of the limits and days, as well as displaying any user specified limit that is being used but isn't in the normal list is added as of r34983.
Comment 6 Aaron Schulz 2008-10-06 03:50:18 UTC
Ok, looks pretty slim by r41723
