Description Omegatron 2007-04-17 02:45:29 UTC
Currently the watchlists and recent changes are formatted as lines of text with
<br/> after them, but they should be coded as an unordered list.
Comment 1 Aaron Schulz 2007-05-10 16:02:17 UTC
I see <li> tags.

Then you're not looking in the same place I am.
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-05-10 17:10:46 UTC
I see <li> tags on the watchlist and standard recentchanges, but not enhanced
recentchanges.

That's not helpful. In future, please provide a clear indication of where the
problem is, as well as information on preferences which have been activated that
would affect the appearance of these cases.

I'm going to pretend this was meant for Voice of All, as I provided a clear
indication of where the problem was in my initial comment.

Hmmm..  I don't know what enhanced recentchanges is, but I seem to have it
turned on in my preferences.  I see br tags instead of li tags in the watchlist,
too, though:

And Voice of All noted that he didn't see the issue.  Clearly there was some
inconsistency there that should be investigated, not dismissed (by either of
you, correct).

Ah, I see.  "Enhanced recent changes" turns it on for your watchlist too.  Okay,
now we know where the issue is.

The preferences need to be consolidated and it needs to be clarified that change
list preferences apply to all change list pages, i.e. recent changes, related
recent changes and watchlists, among others.

Comment 8 Aaron Schulz 2007-05-10 17:40:05 UTC
In my rev_deleted branch (I'll merge sometime), they use tables instead of <br/>
tags. I'll maybe look into <li> tags again, but that got messy last time I tried.
Comment 9 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-05-10 17:43:49 UTC
Tables would perhaps be best.  The data is, after all, in tabular form, with
distinct columns in each row.  It should perhaps be set up to display the same
as an unordered list, like the normal watchlist at present, in browsers that
support that (enhanced and non-enhanced should look identical except for the
enhanced elements, surely).
Comment 10 Brion Vibber 2007-05-11 01:19:04 UTC
Adding this as a dependency of bug 7885, as the existing formatting leads to
weird behavior with some RTL text.
Comment 11 Aaron Schulz 2008-03-24 19:03:49 UTC
Converted to using tables now instead.
