Remove extra spacing on watchlist tab on Special:Preferences (653 bytes, patch)

Description Ivan Lanin 2006-05-22 06:17:13 UTC
There is an extra newline on watchlist tab options separating
"prefs-watchlist-days" and "tog-extendwatchlist", while on other tabs there is
no such newline. Please remove it for consistency in interface.

Comment 2 Rob Church 2006-05-22 08:50:37 UTC
I don't understand why you'd want to remove it and cramp up the interface. It
makes much more sense to me to add extra spacing and made the controls clearer
and easier to use.
Comment 3 Ivan Lanin 2006-05-22 09:35:42 UTC
The reason is consistency on user interface.

* On the "Recent changes" tab, there's no space between entry of "Titles in recent changes" and check box 
for "Hide minor edits in recent changes"
* On the "Editing" tab, there's no space between entry of "Rows" and "Cols" and check box for "Enable 
sections editing..."
* On the "Misc" tab, there's no space between entry of "Underline links" and check box for "Format broken 
links..."

But suddenly, there's a space between "Number of days to show in watchlist:" and "Hide my edits from the 
watchlist". If user navigate between the tabs, they'll notice the difference in the interface. IMHO, it 
better be consistent. Either add extra newline on the three other tabs, or remove the extra newline on 
the "Watchlist" tab.

Changing summary to reflect the real issue.

Remove extra spacing on watchlist tab on Special:Preferences

Thanks for submitting a patch to MediaWiki. Unfortunately I'm going to have to
mark the patch as obsolete because it no longer merges into our current code.
Comment 7 John Du Hart 2011-09-01 04:32:25 UTC
Also, closing as WFM since the new preferences system doesn't seem to have this problem.
